This is a beautiful, beautiful bra. The red and gold combination is stunning and the lace design is not overwhelmingly 'lacey', more like embroidery. Somehow, the ensemble reminds me of French tapestries...or turn of the century nhand painted wallpaper... Because it is so beautiful, I've kept it in my drawer for too long thinking I could somehow alter the cups to fit, but actually someone should have this bra to wear and treasure. It may be on the generous side of G, since it is unlined. Typical of all Fantasie creations, the construction is excellent and the finishing details are well done. The band is a little ... forgiving, the cups are deep at the bottom and apex, and the side support panels corral any outer fullness to bring it all in and up. Its called a plunge but I think its more a hybrid because the gore is not too low; there's enough support and coverage in the center so nothing falls out. The cups do come up a little taller than my other balconies, though. The profile (on me, bearing in mind it is too big) is more of a natural, uplifted green shape. The straps are partly adjustable and firm. The material is smooth and soft, even the lace top part. I don't think it would show under clothes. Such a beautiful confection under those clothes though!

This is such a pretty bra, but it's the wrong shape for me. Even it the cups were large enough, I'm pretty sure I'd get "orange in a glass" because there's insufficient immediate projection at the bottom and quadraboob because it's too tight across the top.
The fit is pretty similar to the Elodie (which also didn't work for me).

Have tried Fantasie plunge without side support too --the plunge on this one with side support works better (probably because of the cup construction though). Straps are still a smidge too wide and one keeps slipping. I know that if I tighten it too much it will dig in so I have to find the sweet spot of slipping just a little, digging just a little. Looking at photos and red marks on my skin after wearing it all day, I'd say the wires are too wide and the cup is a smidge too large! Weird.
However, I find my 3 year old Fantasie bra bands to be still ... tight on the first hook and this one gives me the same tightness on the middle hook.
I do like that the gore is lower but not so low I spill out (as I have soft tissue). And it's red. I've always preferred skin-tone bras as multi-purpose but now I like the idea of wearing red with a red top. If it shows, it's not as obvious.
Cups are deep and projected. I feel uplifted without having boobs in my chin. The wires are shorter than the channel.

The cut and fit of this bra were very similar to that of the Fantasie Nicola, which I have also reviewed in the same size. I have the same bone to pick with it as far as dissonance in design.
It is about as comfortable as the Nicola as well, but in a different way. The bottom of the cup feels and looks like the lining of a couch on the outside, but is still comfortable enough to be wearable.
Firm, comfortable band, with cups that my smaller breast can't quite fill on the top.
