Lingerie of the Week: Fantasie 'Melissa' Bra Set

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.


I first spotted the Fantasie 'Melissa'  bra set on the TLA Tumblr a few weeks ago, and since then I haven't been able to get it out of my mind. Fantasie is one of those brands I wouldn't have given a second look when I first started blogging five years ago because their style is a little... sedate. I wouldn't go so far as calling it conservative, but Fantasie is definitely a brand I associate with maturity. Maybe that's part of the reason I like them now.

Besides my ever-present adoration of black mesh, I also quite like the pink embroidery. It makes the bra very sweet, very sophisticated, and very sexy. It's not sexy in that push-ups and glitter kind of way (you know who I'm referring to), rather this strikes me as a very confident kind of sexy. The kind that's secure and comfortable in her own skin.

The Fantasie 'Melissa' bra retails for $78 and is available in sizes 30D thru 38GG. The thong and boyshort retail for $42 and $46, respectively, and are available in sizes XS thru XXL. the coordinating garter belt retails for $55 and is available in sizes S thru XL.

What do you think of the Fantasie 'Melissa' bra? Is this a set you'd add to your lingerie wardrobe?

    I don’t like it, I think it’s frumpy.

    Prettier bras and panties available from Aubade, Lise Charmel, and Empreinte at only slightly higher price points. Also the fact that the underwear is limited to a shorty or thong is a negative. The price point seems a bit high when there are also prettier pieces available from Elle MacPherson.

    Still it is not deadly dull beige. It is all about available sizing.

    This is one of my favorite Fantasie sets! It’s super comfy, and the pink embroidery is intricate and pretty, and it has iridescent thread mixed with the pink thread! It’s even more beautiful in person. The black mesh on this set is just fabulous also. Photos don’t do it justice, but I did review this set on my blog (minus the suspender). If you can get it in your size, I highly suggest it. It’s my prettiest Fantasie set yet! I even like it more than the Elodie in Teal, which I also have and reviewed, but was disappointed that the teal is much more dull and dim in person than in the Fantasie photos.

    Ms. Pris, it’s a bummer that Fantasie doesn’t work for you! I’m on the relatively low end of the full-bust bra community (34E in UK bra sizes), and my breasts are full on the bottom, so I wouldn’t run into the same issues.

  5. Ms. Pris says:

    I love most of Fantasie’s aesthetic. I am a big fan of lace and embroidery and pretty prints. I had to stop wearing them, though, because they just didn’t give the level of lift that would address my back pain and enhance my figure. In the larger cup sizes the look is low. I think this bra is gorgeous but I probably would not buy it due to these issues.

    I would love to see Fantasie expand their patterns and make some side support bras that are roomy in the top and give a lot of lift.

    I don’t have any sets, but the Melissa bra and boyshort may change my mind … Fantasie is a favorite brand (their Tina is a beloved resident of my bra drawer, though she’s not there v. often because I wear her so much).

    And you’re right about Melissa’s appeal — it says, “If you’ve got it, and you know it, you don’t have to shout it.”
