Why I recommend this bra
I’m a busty woman and I know how difficult it is to find a really good bra with a nice fit, beautiful, supportive and comfortable. For many years of my life I thought that there simply weren’t bras on my size. This was before I discovered Bare Necessities and started buying ALL my bras online. When I got the first bra I ordered I was so relieved to discover that there were models actually designed for busty women, and that’s exactly what the Alex Side Support bra from Fantasie is.
I remember when I settled for boring, unimaginative and dull bras simply because they were comfortable and supportive. Luckily for us, there are brands like Fantasie that understand the needs of curvy girls and they design sexy and pretty bras with all the features regarding comfort and support that we so desperately need. This particular full-coverage model is very sexy indeed, and is one of the most comfortable bras that you’ll ever wear.
For obvious reasons, large cup bras need to have a particular design to adapt to a curvy women’s figure and the quality of the product needs to be better than those with lower more ¨standard¨ sizes because they actually have a lot more work to do holding up our big girls. That’s why I have absolutely no issue with the price of this particular model. The high quality of the Alex Side Support Bra justifies its price and if you take good care of it you’ll be able to enjoy it for years.
All about the bra
In general, all Fantasie bras offer an outstanding support, but this model takes the comfort to a whole new level. The design of this product features Swiss embroidery mesh to make it breathable, underwire to lift and round, and side support panels to bring your breasts toward front and centered. Because of the texture of the fabrics and sewing, this bra is visible under tight t-shirts. However, this is a very versatile bra and you could wear it everyday with many different outfits and in every occasion.
Despise of being a full-coverage bra, it’s very sexy and it will enhance your figure making you look thinner and it will give a very beautiful and natural shape to your breasts. The straps are fully adjustable and they hold up quite nicely, even after a long day. The straps are also wide enough; an essential feature that every DD+ size bra should have. The cups aren’t molded or heavily padded; this is a feature that I actually love because It feels like if I weren’t using a bra.
Many women sacrifice comfort for fashion (something I simply can’t do), but with this Fantasie bra you won’t have to anymore. This model is available in 5 beautiful colors: black, denim, pomegranate, sand and white. One of my favorite things in the world is to find the exact bra design that I want and in the color that I want! This is another great hit by Fantasie and I recommend it for every curvy women out there.
How does the bra fit?
I’ve read mixed reviews about how this bra fits. But in my opinion as a professional fitter, I think that the problem is that many women don’t know their exact size and don’t have a lot of experience with foreign brands. The issue with this model is that apparently the cup size runs a little bit to small. There’s no need to worry though, if you are on the smaller side of your cup size, you only need to up one size and you should be fine.
The side support panels don’t dig into the armpits like other similar models do. One of the best features of this bra is how evenly it distributes the weight of your breasts; this is great news for every DD+ women, especially for those with HH and J cup sizes. Overall, this bra really keeps your boobs in place with its amazing fit. This is a very good bra for every busty woman, I recommend it without hesitating.
Is the bra comfortable?
This is one of the most comfortable and supportive bra that you’ll ever own. I know a thing or two about discomfort because I wore the wrong bra size for years, it wasn’t until a professional fitter took my measures that I realized that I was using two cup sizes smaller than I should have. The only problem then was the fact that I could not find bras my size in department stores. Once I found out about online shopping all my struggles fade away. Nowadays I settle for nothing less than perfect, and trust me when I tell you that this bra really has it all.
I’ve recommended this bra to my clients and I’m happy to say that they have all loved it. The only thing you need to know is your correct bra size and read about how other women your size are doing with it. Every body is different and I’m still in the search of the perfect bra, but this one is without a doubt at the top of my list.
How does the bra look?
Some products look better on picture than they actually do in real life, that’s not the case with the Alex Side Support bra. What you see is what you get, the colors are very beautiful, the finish is impeccable and the fabrics feel even better than you would imagine. But that’s nothing compared to how great it looks on. This bra is classy, sexy and cute, and it will make you feel amazing from the very first moment you try it on. This bra is noticeable under tight t-shirts, but under blouses and tops looks really amazing.
Where to wear this bra
This bra is wearable pretty much anywhere. The full coverage gives a lot of support and comfort so you could wear it all day while working, running errands, picking up the kids at school, or cleaning up your home. And because it’s very beautiful, you could wear it in any event of any kind. Because of its high quality, you could wear it everyday and hand wash it several tims a week without endangering its durability.
If you are looking for a new every-day bra with an amazing design, you definitely need to try the Alex Side Support bra. Almost every women who have tried this model have ordered a second in other color because it is truly versatile.
