Could it be? A perfect bra?? I ordered this bra from Nordstrom because it was on sale, it's a sister brand of Freya so I figured it would fit well. It fits amazing on me and makes my boobs look great! It's a balcony cut, so it's higher up than I'm used to but it's not a problem at all. The embroidery on the Vivienne is absolutely gorgeous and doesn't show through in t-shirts.
The Fantasie Vivienne bra is a very supportive and beautiful bra. It is true to size compared to other Fantasie seamed bras. The band and straps fit well and are comfortable. The straps adjust down to my small frame. The cups come up quite high on the sides which helps hold all of my breast tissue and bring it forward, but not so high as to be uncomfortable and I am only 5'2". This bra gives great lift and a nice natural shape. While I don't find it pointy, it is not the completely rounded shape that some may prefer. The ...cups give enough coverage to keep my jiggly breast under control (this can be a problem for me with lower cut balcony/balconette bras). The only negative I have is that the center gore is a bit too high for my close together breasts and I can feel it digging at the end of the day. The bra may show under tight and thin T-shirts and knits, but unless I am at work, I no longer worry about this.
Update: The center gore was just too painful after wearing the bra an entire day. Also, the band on this bra stretched very quickly and I was soon wearing it on the tightest hook. I wear my bras once or twice a week and wash them by hand, so it was not due to normal wear. Since trying on Panache and Cleo bras, I realize that Fantasie bands are much looser and stretchier.

I love this bra! I have had a hard time finding a balcony bra style that works for me post-breastfeeding. I was a loyal Freya girl before but sadly, I have had a really hard time finding a non-molded bra from any of their collections that fit me properly. Before my children I was a 30F... I now wear a 30E and my breasts are less 'round' and more teardrop shaped. All of my bras in my collection are currently molded but the Vivienne is a game-changer - it fits perfectly and gives a lovely shape without padding. The wires are quite wide which works well for me ...and I have no problem filling out the top of this bra - which happens with the Freya balcony bra styles. There is a slight cutting in of the lace section on my larger breast (which can be seen in the picture) but not enough to warrant sizing up or exchanging the bra. I am guessing that with a few wears the lace will stretch out to accommodate this.
I would say this bra is good for women with bottom heavy, teardrop shaped breasts, and would likely not work well for those with full-on-top breasts. Aside from the fabulous fit, it is absolutely gorgeous! The lace is stunning and not scratchy at all! I am seriously in love https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> Read more 125 more words
I love this bra~! I have it in the Latte (neutral/ivory) color and it's gorgeous! It is narrow in the middle and not too full converage or tall on the sides. The band is comfortable but snug. It took awhile for it to stretch out. I just wish the straps weren't almost off my shoulders.

This is another great design from Fantasie. Although it's not purely my style it's hard to deny it's beauty. This may be the first time I have to start going up a cup size from FF to G in Fantasie pieced bras but that is likely on me and not the sizing/design/quality. Even so, this shape may not be ideal for me as the sides of the cups were a bit empty and the gore came up far too high to be comfortable. Every bra is built slightly different so that a variety of women can fit into them. And that's ok! In this particular case I don't think sizing up to a G-cup would have helped me because of that bothersome center gore.
