Summer/Fall Fashion Preview: Fantasie

Hello Ladies,

After the amazing designs from Fantasie’s spring collection, I was curious not only about which direction the powerhouse brand would take but also how they could compare to such a stellar season.  With a mix of traditionalism, luxury, and decadence, Fantasie proves a brand can reinvent itself while still staying true to its unique aesthetic.

Your Turn:  What did you think of Fantasie’s fall offerings?  My personal favorites were the Elodie in the teal, the Amanda, and the Martina.  With the Elodie, I love how they changed the embroidery from cream/white to black because it lends a darkly romantic vibe perfect for fall and winter!  Even though the Amanda is yet another floral print traversing the lingerie landscape, I find the use of colors rather beautiful and feminine.  Finally, the Martina is just so unexpected and luxurious with the bronze and black color palette that I can’t help but like it, which is out of character for this brown-hating girl!

    The entire Melissa set is to die for. Elodie is second favourite, closely followed by Martina – love the colors of this one.

      The Melissa set is pretty amazing as well. There’s a definitely sense of luxury to all of the new styles. of course, the price tags seem to suggest that as well!

    I saw shots on missunderpin but I was waiting for your post. well well.. I fall in love with Fleur..Fresh and classic. Rebecca Nouveau is beautiful and I love it even more because I owe a panty from VS in the same two-tone. I know that it’ll be more beautiful in live! Susanna….! I was skeptic when the petal tone has been released. But this colour got me speechless and as I planned to buy the antique gold..here begins THE dilemma. And I have great expectations for this new line : Melissa. Hummm wait & see. Martina to end my selection..a mix of luxury and retro.
    Heard my savings account begging for mercy!!! ^_^

      Maissa, the Fleur does have a fresh feel which is perfect for summer. I kind of wish the Rebecca Nouveau was coming out at the same time because they would hang well together, but the winter white does seem good for December too. There’s definitely plenty of temptation to go around!

    Fleur has this favourite every day bra feel to me, it looks as if it is made of cotton and is super soft and comfy. I really like it.

      It does have a “basic with a twist” vibe, doesn’t it? I think that is one of Fantasie’s more understated designs which still feels fresh and fun.

    I love the Fantasie Rebecca. It is my go to everyday bra. I feel that it does not minimize me but gives me a nice rounded kinda wide appearance. I like it though because most of my other bras bring me forward and this gives me some nice side boob. Do you have any other recommendations for any other bras that would give me this same fit? My only bad thing to say about the Rebecca is that the gore is too high for me as I have close set breasts.

      Hi Lisa, what size do you wear? I’m happy to give a few alternatives for you to consider! 🙂

    Yay!!! Sorry I did not know you replied. I am wearing the Rebecca in a 34g as the band felt super tight in a 32. I am normally a 32H in UK bras, I wear the Freya deco in a 32GG. I think my measurements are 31″ under & 42″ over.

      A few ideas for other great styles: The Panache Idina Plunge, the Panache Andorra Plunge, Fantasie Salsa (although the gore may be a bit too high for you), Fantasie Elodie, and the Curvy Kate Smoothie. Hope that helps!

      I’m excited for this too, but I was a bit disappointed they were making us wait until December!
