Fantasie Lingerie bras always catch my eye but after several failed attempts at wearing them a few years ago I’ve always given them a reluctant wide berth. When Lazeme contacted me to say they had some new styles in they thought I would like, I decided to give them another chance…
My main issue with the range previously was cup depth, my boobs are very full in the centre meaning they would push the bra away from my body and the gore would never lie flat on me. I had never tried the Estelle shape though, which is based the previous Elodie collection & won over by the raspberry colour, I thought they were a good place to start.
The bras have side support (hurrah) and a 3 part cup and are a full balconette
shape. The top section of the cup online appears to be quite sheer but when I received them this was less apparent & they looked more full.
First thing I noticed was the fit! The gore on the raspberry bra sat completely flat and my boobs were completely inside the cups… I was so excited by this! Then I realised that this bra was also ridiculously comfortable and had such good lift and support that my boobs actually felt lighter, which is nothing short of a miracle.
Next I tried the white bra on, for some reason the gore did not sit flat on this one but I am aware that certain dyes/colours in fabrics can alter the fit so wondered if this was a possible cause. Both bras are a 36J and I would describe as them perfectly true to size. The bands are on the firmer side but are still really comfortable and provide such a great “anchorage” for my weighty bust.
I did get the briefs in white I just stupidly forgot to photograph them (can you still blame baby brain after 20 months..?) however I don’t think they are cute for my shape, the sides are a bit narrow and cut in to my hips and the waist sits lower than I would ideally like however they are very nice and replicate the delicate Austrian embroidery seen in the bras.
Overall I’m really pleased with Estelle and even more pleased to have another brand open to me as an option in a J Cup. This range would also work brilliantly if you are more wide set as the side support works super hard and bringing the bust centred and forward.
Estelle is available from a 30-42 bands and D-J cups , You can buy Estelle here using LOVEFBM for a further 10% discount.
