This fit well and was the size I expected based on the Universal Cup Sizing System and the size of my current bras. I ordered a second one in another color. SLW

I did not keep this bra simply because it covered a bit more than I was looking for.

HerRoom Response:We suggest trying style Aeria 1291. The cups are a lightweight spacer foam for breath-ability and no show through. The cut of the cups are less coverage than C Ideal too. JH from TN/USA

I liked that this bra was lightweight, comfortable and it fit well, but I wasn't happy with how it made my breasts look. The underwire was very wide, so my breasts were kind of pushed to the sides. Just wasn't flattering on me. Elizabeth from Pennsylvania

Best fitting bra I have ever had! The step by step guide on finding a bra was perfect. The customer service person recommended this one for more coverage based on the fit that I liked. CKE from SD

This bra is not quite as comfortable as the Wacoal. It's a little more constricting to wear, but it is lightly padded. Older petite from Houston TX

I ordered my size but the cup size was way too small. It is a beautiful bra but I won't be able to keep it. Too small . . . .I'm bummed out. Susan from Millers Creek

So I usually don't do these reviews, but this is a great bra! It really keeps me in place without hurting, and it's soooo nice to put on a fitting bra! Amy from Damascus MD

This is an OK bra. I like that it is full coverage and it is well made. That being said, the straps are NOT set-in - they constantly fall off my shoulders even after I have adjusted them a hundred times. I can feel the underwire in this bra and after a few hours it is unbearable and I have to take the bra off. (I have worn underwires all my life - this is the first time it has bothered me). I wish it were more comfortable because the fit is perfect.

Chantelle Response: Hi Virgie! Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. Is it possible that this isn't the right size for you in this style? When a bra's band size is too wide on on the body, the straps are subsequently too wide as well, even when they are set in. This commonly causes the straps to fall off of one's shoulders, no matter how many times they've been adjusted. The wrong size can also cause the underwire to become uncomfortable, due to either the cup being too small, causing digging into the breast tissue, or the band being too big, causing the wire to easily move/rub against your body as you move. One suggestion for a style with a comfortable wire would be our "C Magnifique" (style: 1891). Both the centered straps and the underwire are lightly padded for an ultra comfortable feel on the body. We hope this helps! Virgie from Connecticut

Did not fit right. It flattened the breast and I had tissue over the top of the cup. I sent it back.

Chantelle Response: Hi Jen! Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. Any time you have breast tissue coming over top the cup in any bra, it might mean that you need to increase the cup size to ensure that the breast tissue is fully contained. While 1951 doesn't come in the next cup size up, our "Rive Gauche" (style: 3281), "C Magnifique" (style: 1891) and our "Parisian 4-Part-Cup" (style: 1471) are all great for amazing comfort, support, and shape, and they all come up to an I cup, which might be what you need in Chantelle. We hope this helps! JEN from Pasadena / Ca

I think this bra runs small. I have another Chantelle bra that I got in a 34F because the 36 was too big around, but I had to exchange this bra for a 36G. Both the band (34) and cup (F) were too small. Overall, the bra is fine -- lightly lined so it gives a nice shape; the straps are thin enough to be cute and they are very adjustable; and the number of hooks increases with the size. It's not as supportive as I'd like, but it's still absolutely fine (and I can't stand when my chest moves around when I'm moving). Make sure you get the right size. anonymous

This bra fits smoothly, is light and comfy and has a nice rounded shape. I fall into the middle of most plunging bras, but this one works for me and I'm glad to have it if only for that reason. It's also a bit slimming without compacting, and has a softly rounded shape rather than sticking out in front a lot. However, it needs more support at the base of the cups, where it's already sagging after wearing 4 or 5 times. I also find the straps a bit too stretchy. More sturdiness and support and I'd buy 2 more today, but no. It runs a bit smaller than Chantelle 1896, which was my favorite bra until it was discontinued. Chantelle, thanks for the clever and flattering plunge design, but get your sizes consistent, and make more sturdy bras like 1896! We need you!

Chantelle Response: We are glad you like the design, feel, and shape, but are sorry that you're finding that it's not the support that you need. Have you ever considered buying a bra with seams in it? A seamed bra provides a great deal of structure and support for the breast tissue, and works best for women with a fuller bust. Two such styles that we recommend are "C Chic Sexy Plunge" (style: 3641), and "Rive Gauche" (style: 3281). Both of these styles have minimum stretch, full support up to an H cup and flat seams that are virtually invisible under most clothing. Rachel from Chicago, IL USA

I love Chantelle bras, but found this one to run small in the cups. It was small for me and didn't give me as nice of a shape as I wanted. Pat from Barnegat, NJ

This bra minimizes me by about half an inch, which wasn't what I bought it for, but I was pleasantly surprised because most minimizers don't work for me. I love the fit, shape, and support, and the lace is gorgeous. Underwires squeaked a little when I tried it on, but the noise went away in a few hours. Cindy from Berkeley

I have a Chantelle C Chic bra in a 32D that I love. This though... I couldn't believe my eyes when both the tag AND the label said it was a 32D. The underwire dips low down from the center panel. On the tightest setting it was still riding up my back and loose. I was hoping this one would fit because it had a 2 hook closure instead of 3 but alas, this was far from an option. Sarah from MD

Absolutely love this bra! Sometimes people will say that a bra fits so well that it's like you can't even feel it - I always think, not in this cup size! I put this on and, wow!!! It doesn't feel like I'm wearing it - no digging or pinching or binding but great support and incredibly comfortable. I am tall - 5'11" with a small rib cage for my height and a very full 34DDD. This gives full coverage in the cup horizontally and vertically, no spilling out the sides and good separation. It provides good padding for no nipple show through. The only slightly negative thing I would say is that it makes a squeaky noise from the underwires at first but with wearing, that goes away. Cindy from Deep South

Would like a bra with no padding and not so stiff

HerRoom Response: Thank you for your feedback! We suggest you try Chantelle C Natural Seamless Molded Underwire Bra. This bra has molded, seamless cups with stretch to offer a more comfortable, custom fit. Jeanine from Brooklyn, NY

Fit was ok, but it made the breasts look flat. I love the Chantelle bras but I returned this one. Laurie from Kokomo/IN/ 46902

I wanted to love this bra. It was comfortable, and it did a great job at helping with "back fat". It also provided good coverage of nipple-show-through without adding too much padding. However, I returned it because I felt I had too much jiggle at the top of the cups. Lori from Seguin, TX
