This bra fits great! It gives you a slight lift, but not to the point where you have too much cleavage. It looks great under thin t-shirts and tank tops. Chantelle has the best bras in my opinion, and this one did not disappoint! Ashley from Washington, DC

Obsessed with this bra! I have an impossible time finding bras because, at only 5'1," my torso is narrow, but my bust is the size of an average woman's chest. The narrow torso means that my breasts are usually closer together than the underwire, creating an uncomfortable/unattractive overflow issue in the center, and the underwire almost always extends into my armpits, which is painful and useless. I thought that having a 30 inch band would eliminate the narrow boobs problem, but sometimes the 30 inch bands still have wide cups on them, which boggles my mind. This bra, though, nails it! The center part of the band (between my boobs) is the perfect length and, for the first time in my life, actually rests on the skin rather than hanging an inch or more away from my skin, suspended by the inner part of my boobs. And, like a 30 inch band should command, the cups are narrower than the cups on a "normal" bra - just like we petite ladies need! Finally, the material, shape, and flexibility of the cups are exactly what I was looking for. The cups are just thick enough to prevent nipple shows and smooth enough for thin clothing to hang as it should on the body without catching on the bra's material. The shape of the cups is very natural - no cone-shaped or flimsy "do nothing for me" cups. The cups are molded to the shape my boobs were in college...I mean, isn't that the shape we all want?!?! As someone whose breasts are "bottom heavy" (the woman who fit me at a specialty bra store used that phrase...her euphemism for saggy, but I like it), this bra put my breasts back where they belong without making me look like a porn star, which push-up bras tend to do because of my short stature. The molding is soft, so the breasts pass the "hug test," my test where you press down on your breasts, in the bra, and see if they feel crunchy or foamy. If you are petite in frame and have saggy breasts, buy this!! I've never write reviews and made an exception for this bra because it is so phenomenal and because the reviews of others helped me make this choice. If I had to give the bra makers one critique it would be to make the back part of the band with the "U-shape" that some of the other companies are doing, in order to hide back flab, which, even at 105lbs, I've got...grumble.

This bra is so pretty. And flattering. It lacks the "sturdy feeling" of my le Mystere bras, so it's not ideal for when I'm working. But it's gorgeous, and it makes me feel pretty. Heather from Pennsylvania

Normally I wear a 34E, and in the nude, this bra almost doesn't have enough room in the cups and I run over if I get very active. In black, I run over all the time, so I exchanged the black 34E for a 36F (because there were no 34F's available). The cup size is better, but I have to keep it on the tightest setting or else it's too loose in the band and starts riding (painfully) on my ribs. I think the 34F would have been perfect. I will attempt to take the band in with a needle and thread on my own, but I would rather have gotten the proper cup and band size out of the box. Le sigh! Rachel from Raleigh, NC

I tried this on at a department store and loved it! It may have been one of the most comfortable bras I've ever tried on. Unfortunately that is when I found out that I'm a 30DDD, not a 30DD and they didn't have the DDD in stock. I would buy it from here in a heart beat if the back wasn't lace. I'm just not fond of lace bands. Is there another bra that would be this comfortable without the lace? Ria from Washington

The bra was really pretty but seems to run rather small. I would probably go up a cup size to make sure it fit. Ashley from Seneca/South Carolina/USA

When you are naturally large chested it is hard to find a bra that is both pretty and actually contains the madness. This bra is the perfect piece. I own seven at this point. Nothing else will do. Becky from Colorado

Well this is the second time I've purchased this bra. I thought I really liked it but after having the first one for 5 months I'm noticing that the lace under the cups have a tendency to roll under the bra cup. This is NOT comfortable to be sure. I had not noticed this before I bought and wore my second bra. Also my new bra squeaks on the straps. I'm not sure if this is because it's still so new or what. I'm hoping the squeakiness will go away. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement. I really can't recommend this bra because of the above problems; however, it does have good coverage especially under tee shirts.

HerRoom Response: I think the issue is that you are petite in height and therefore have a very short torso, and this is why the lace is rolling under.

Chantelle Response: Would need to see bra to determine problem. JDH from Marietta, GA

Fit and comfort is great. Support is average. I wouldn't wear it if I knew I was doing a lot of physical activity, but it is great for most days at the office or for going out. Dee from Rochester, NY

I love this bra. I ordered the 3581 too but don't like it nearly as much. It's very comfortable, pretty, supportive and good coverage. Hope it goes on sale so I can get another one soon. jh from atlanta, GA
