Why I recommend this bra
Fantasie bras never fail, and that is a reason enough to give their balcony bra a shot. A lot of bras of different categories, not only the balcony ones, tend to alter the natural shape of your boobs. For some of you, this may be a plus, especially if you’re dealing with disproportion in your bust you want to balance out. However, if you’re like me, and you’re satisfied with your natural features, this balcony bra is a great way to enhance them, without significantly changing the shape of the girls.
Speaking of the transformative power of bras, I love those models which can make a change not only in the shape of your cleavage, but in your silhouette, as well. If you happen to have a short upper torso, the placement of this bra can help you visually elongate the area.
It is an adjustable, reliable balcony bra which gives you a perfect mixture of security and comfort, keeping the sexiness alive.
All about the bra
As I’ve previously mentioned, this bra won’t significantly alter the natural shape of your boobs. You get to keep their natural look, while enhancing it in areas you find it appropriate. Think of it as makeup. You can add just enough to bring out your best features, without going overboard. The same principle applies to this balcony bra, which is all about preserving a more casual, out-going style.
The contour of the bra is rather smooth and easy to blend with different kinds of fabric. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about anything peeking through, which is quite possibly one of the biggest concerns busty girls have.
This balcony bra also has limited stretch straps, which are adjustable, but will keep the firmness you need. Some straps tend to get too loose overtime, and it can mess up the concept of the bra. You can rest assured that such thing won’t happen with these quality Fantasie balcony bra straps.
How does the bra fit?
When it comes to describing the fit of a bra, I prefer to rely on personal experiences, rather than the facts the manufacturer puts up. Fantasie is definitely a trustworthy brand which doesn’t have the tendency of exaggerating when it comes to product specifications. Nevertheless, I find subjective customer reviews to be far more reliable, and relatable.
According to my 30G client, it is very supportive, and absolutely comfortable. While it gives the boobs a light, subtle lift, it also creates a moderate cleavage. Her personal experience with this balcony bra is that it is one of those bras you can wear every single day for hours, without experiencing any discomfort.
Since the cups don’t include any padding, it fits naturally and seamlessly. The only complaint I’ve ever received regarding this balcony bra is that it can cause some nipple poking due to the lack of padding. However, it isn’t very common, and I believe it is a fair compromise.
Is the bra comfortable?
To summarize most of the remarks about this balcony bra, it is definitely one of the most comfortable bras of this type. The straps stay in place, so you don’t have to keep adjusting them. Also, they’re not too tight, and they won’t dig into your skin, leaving those painful, annoying marks on your shoulders and back.
Since there’s no padding, you’ll basically feel as if you had nothing underneath your clothes. This kind of design is great for hot summer days, or special occasions when you know you won’t have the opportunity to switch outfits. In addition to all these benefits, it still supports your bust, not allowing any leaking or slipping.
While feeling comfortable, it is important to state that it creates a beautiful silhouette underneath t-shirts, tops, and dresses.
If you feel that your boobs are positioned high on your torso, the fit of this bra will definitely go in your favor. Highly placed boobs tend to create issues with straps which have the tendency of slipping off the shoulders. The design of this bra provides comfort and security underneath any clothing item, without feeling tight.
How does the bra look?
The perfectly molded cups resemble those vintage balcony bras, when simplicity was the ultimate style choice, and less was indeed more. This kind of minimalistic design allows you to enhance the natural shape of your bust, escaping the exaggerated look, which can be rather risky for busty ladies. There’s a thin line between sexy and tacky when it comes to cleavage.
In the spirit of simplicity and minimalism, it was created in two must-have colors: black, and nude. The style gives off a rather classy, sophisticated vibe, thus making this bra a must-have in the wardrobe of every busty girl who appreciates this kind of approach.
As far as the security system of this bra is concerned, there’s a 3-column-2-row hook. The bigger the size, the more the columns and rows the bra provides.
Where to wear this bra
Balcony bra embodies versatility in every shape and form. Since it is more on a natural-looking side, I’d definitely recommend it for everyday wear. You simply need this amount of comfort on daily basis, in order to feel good in your own skin.
However, if you’re happy with the moderate cleavage it offers, you can definitely include it in more glamorous clothing combinations. Since you don’t have to work hard to create a noticeable cleavage, you have the luxury of being able to put comfort before anything else.
My bra review
This is one of those bras you’ll gravitate towards over and over again, since there’s no room for disappointment. Everything you see is exactly what you’re getting, and there are no false promises. It is comfortable, easy to combine with different outfits, and extremely sexy, although it isn’t exactly a statement-making lingerie piece.
Thanks to the perfectly molded cups, it’ll seamlessly blend with any kind of outfit. Since it is lightweight and gentle on the skin, you’ll probably find yourself wearing it more than any other model. All of its features combined threaten to replace your favorite bra the moment you try it on.
In all honesty, I’ll pick this balcony bra over any over-the-top, show-stopping, luxurious lingerie piece anytime.
