Why I recommend this bra
Personally, balconette bras are one of my favorite types of bras because of how versatile they are. I can wear them with almost any outfit and to almost any occasion. I think the only time in which I need to change the style is when doing any physical activity, and for those times I have some sports bras for more support. But, the balconette is a great bra if I’m wearing cleavage, t-shirts, or dresses. And the Fantasie Ivana Balconette is on my top-5 most comfortable balconette bras.
The fit on this one is amazing ans is so comfortable you won’t even notice you’re wearing a bra at all. I love the shape it gives to my boobs, how soft the fabric is, and how beautiful the lace looks. Plus, the underwire gives extra support, it is lightly padded, so nothing is shown, but you still keep your original cup size.
The support on the Fantasie Ivana Balconette bra is incomparable. It feels like you should have been born with this bra on. Your boobs and back will thank you like they have never thanked you before. No more back pains and no more bra marks on your body, this bra won’t leave any of them. So, if someone asked me for three words to describe this bra I would say: comfort, fitting, and cuteness!
All about the bra
The Fantasie Ivana Balconette bra is made of a very cute lace that will make you look elegant, classy, and trendy. It has a multi-part underwire for better support, awesome lifting, and cute shape on your boobs. The “balconette” part is great for using cleavage. It is not a full cup, full coverage bra, but it will cover everything that needs to be cover (no nipples picking out! so, you can feel safe with that). Plus, the are free of lining.
As a busty woman, I know the last thing most of us want is to show one or two sizes more than what we really are. So, this is a great padded bra that will hide your nipples, but won’t make your boobs look larger than they are. Your natural shape and size are both preserved.
The fabric is really soft. It’s made of nylon, polyester, and elastane. It won’t irritate your skin and is very comfortable regarding that department. The edges of this bra have sewn-on elastic for a better fit. Plus, the straps are wide enough for your shoulders to feel comfortable and for more support. The band, at the back, has 2-row and 3-column hook, wide enough.
This bra can last a long time if taken care properly. You should hand wash it with warm water and delicate detergents. Then, hang it somewhere for it to dry. NEVER put it in the drying machine.
How does the bra fit?
Fantasie Ivana Balconette bras have an amazing fit! It will cover your boobs perfectly and give them a very cute and round shape. The lift and cleavage on this one is also incredible. You will love it from the moment you hook it! This is a bra that will lift your boobs without suffocating them, unlike other balconette bras. Also, the underwire nor the straps will dig in your body.
Regarding sizing, I found it to be the perfect size for me. I ordered the same as usual and it worked perfectly. However, in some reviews, women have said that they had to buy a size down in cup and band. So, if you’re between sizes, buy the smaller one. Also, if you’re not sure about your size, but you have bras from other brands, check the size in those and still order a cup and band size smaller than the one listed on your bra.
Is the bra comfortable?
This bra is both gorgeous and comfortable. What a hard thing to find in big girls bras! This bra offers awesome support, without harming your shoulders or your armpits. The lifting will bring your breasts forwards, but without pushing them together enough as to create the “uniboob” effect.
The fabric is really soft and it feels nice on the skin. You can wear this bra for hours and you will even forget you’re wearing one. This is a great bra for partying, specially if you’re a dancing type of girl. It will support your boobs and you will feel super comfortable while moving around.
How does the bra look?
This is one of the most beautiful balconette bras in the market of busty women. It is made of a super cute satin fabric and it has a Swiss embroidered netting that makes the bra a very elegant one. It is so beautiful that it is a great choice for special date nights. The center front has sating bow with faux gem and ornate embroidery, which gives the bra a very nice touch, and the straps have floral details. It’s a shame the bra only comes in one color, but I think it’s more than enough since it makes the perfect color for this particular model and this particular fabric.
Where to wear this bra
As any other balconette bra, the Fantasie Ivana Balconette bra is one of the most versatile bras in the market. You can wear it to almost anywhere. The only restrictions are to use it as a sports bra (which is pretty obvios) and to not use it with an outfit that requires a strapless bra. Anything else, the Fantasie Ivana Balconette bra is a perfect bra. For partying with your friends is amazing since it will allow you to use cleavage, plus you’ll have support all night long. For date nights is great since it looks so cute and it adapts to your body figure. And as an everyday bra is also a great choice since it will allow you to use any outfit, without loosing support and lifting.
My bra review
After reading women’s reviews and having tried this bra on my own, I have decided that on a scale from 1 to 5, this bra has 5 full stars. The support is amazing, it is super cute, the lifting (OMG!), and it is unbelievably comfortable. Also, though it might seem a bit pricey, it is totally worth it when you find out how versatile the Fantasie Ivana Balconette bra is and how durable and high-quality the product is! I’m just waiting for more colors to buy more of these!
