32FF/G and this gives me excellent support and a natural shape. I think my breasts look a little smaller in this bra than in others I wear and that is a good thing for a small-chested/big breasted woman like me. The lining is soft and breathable - very comfortable. One would need nipple covers for an air-conditioned office despite the lining. My only complaint is that it is not made in black: only white and beige (nude). I am buying up all the beige ones I can afford and crossing my fingers that they add black at least, and other colors, too. A very comfortable everyday bra.
Yes, I recommend this product.

A good supportive bra. I wear a 32FF/G and appreciate the lift the bra gives. At the same time, it does seem to add a bit to the appearance of large breasts. If that's what you want, it will give you about a 1/2 cup size increase in appearance. That's my experience compared with other bras I wear. I think it has more to do with the exceptional lift than with padding. The lining is lightly padded to prevent those around you from knowing you're cold and it does a fine job of that. Overall, happy with the purchase: I bought in both nude and black to wear as an everyday bra.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Unflattering but comfortable for around the house

This is a very comfortable bra, but the support is minimal at best due to the unstructured cups especially the lace top half. The unstructured top half was not flattering under clothing.
BUT the bra is comfortable as all heck. Bought two and sending one back and keeping one for hanging around the house (no pun intended).
FIT: I wear a 32FF and the cups were just a tad small for a FF, but I would not suggest going down a size, rather if you're a "near [cup size]" it would likely work for you.
No, I do not recommend this product.

What does the back of this bra look like? Does it have a leotard back or close set straps???

I don't want to post another merchant site's address here, but if you do a Google search for the fantasie-smoothing-balcony-t-shirt-bra and then select "image" from the options on the left of your search results page, you'll see images from other sites of the back of the bra.

I do wish this site provided images of the backs and fronts of all bras/swimwear, etc.

What is the difference between the smoothing balcony T-shirt bra and the smoothing balcony underwire bra, both made by Fantasie?

Hi, Holly.

I've worn both: the smoothing T-shirt bra is lined, and the cups are softly molded; the smoothing balcony underwire bra is not lined at all. The T-shirt bra gives your breast a lot of lift and more rounded shape, while the smoothing balcony underwire bra maintains a more natural look.

I hope that is helpful!
