Having enjoyed regular access to the fridge this past year my bras had got quite snug!
I find Fantasie are more generous sizing than Curvy Kate, Panache and Bravissimo and opt for a back size smaller which tends to work.
I had a Zoom chat with an adviser to get an idea of what size I should go for, she was great and I’d recommend doing this.
I ordered 36GG, (the other makes I ordered 38GG which all fit well if that helps).
The cup size was great and on the middle hook setting I got a really good fit. Usually in store I try different sizes to get on to the last hook to accommodate stretch. I decided to stick with this size as hope I’ll lose some weight or more likely keep gaining and it will fit for longer!!!
Plus sides for this bra is that it has fantastic support, probably the best support I’ve had from a bra and it is comfortable.
The wire does sit quite high in the middle, more so than other full cup styles.I thought it might rub but I wore it for 13hrs first go with no issue.
The down side for me is the profile it gives. It separates my boobs and seems to point them in opposite directions. The shape is a bit pointy too.
I did question keeping this bra as I’m really not keen on the shape. I decided to keep it as a sturdy work bra, I wear loose fitting “scrub” tops which are very shapeless therefore it’s not as noticeable. Not sure I’d order it again though.
