My first 3-part seamed cup bra from the local shop, and I'm in love. Excellent support. Lace isn't itchy. The underwires actually sit against my rib cage instead of somewhere out nestled in the cleavage. I'm 4'11" with narrow shoulders, and the straps don't fall off!! I feel held in and up and life is good. I'll be back here at herroom in the future, this was the cheapest bra in the local shop! Although I don't regret the purchase, I'd like some more options under $100... H from upstate NY

Nice quality and soft material, but did not fit me. There was too much fabric in the top of the cup for my shallow breasts. I have found that Chantelle bras run a bit too full in the cup for me. Sizing down on the cup might have worked on this one. Fern from MN

This bra is wonderful, and it's the first seamed bra to fit me well. I have low-set breasts with a very wide root. I'm also bottom-heavy, and I find that most bras with cups wide enough to hold all of my breast tissue gape at the top. The other problem I have with fit is narrow, sloped shoulders. Most straps in larger cup sizes are too wide in the shoulders and constantly fall off. With seamed bras, the lace panel almost always sticks up. I don't have any of those problems with this bra. Furthermore, I've never found another bra this lightweight and breathable that provides such good support. It gives me a good rounded shape, forward projection and good lift. Plus, the straps do not cause pain by digging into my shoulders. A word about sizing: This is the equivalent of an FF in UK sizing, but FF is too small for me in virtually all UK brands I've tried. I think the cups in this bra are more generous than the usual FF size. If FF usually fits you and you don't have a problem with spillage due to top heavy breasts, I might order down a cup. Also, I go between a 34 and 36 band depending on the brand and style of a bra. This band is slightly more stretchy than I would prefer. A 34 H wasn't available when I bought it. As is, I started out on the second row of hook and eye closures. That just means this bra won't last as long -- this would be a problem for me if I had paid full price for the bra.

This is a beautiful and well made bra. not to mention sexy. I have several in different colors and adore them. Fit especially well for me - I am short waisted and busty, it holds the girls front and center without making them look pointy. It also has a low center so the wires do not poke me when I bend over. Highly recommend! Deb from Northern California

This bra fit nicely and it looks pretty. I have not worn it yet. The lace seems a bit lumpy under a T shirt, I normally wear a smooth bra. Susan from Northern Virginia

My go-to bra. Good support and is fairly pretty. If you have a high tummy it can kind of press on your diaphragm, but besides that I love it. Elisabeth from Asheville, NC

This bra was perfect for me!! Excellent comfort and support I am very small boned but suffering menopausal weight gain - not a lot but too much for me! The bra keeps the girls up and give the under arm support without spilling out. There is separation along with support - no more uni-boob! Karen from Dublin

Beautiful, excellent support, comfortable, excellent fit and construction. What more could you want? I bought this in a 40D because sometimes I like a little extra room in the band. The three part cup construction really holds me in without feeling like I am in a wire cage. I will probably buy another one of these in a 38D and probably in other colors and may well add the t shirt version. That is how much I love this bra. I will definitely buy other Chantelle bras (in fact, I have already ordered another one.) It feels like I am wearing nothing, even while out in the garden digging holes. For others considering the bra please be aware that the cups are very textured. If you plan to wear it under a thin t shirt, you will want to wear a cami (hence the need for the t shirt version). It's fine under a medium weight. Sandy from Green Bay, WI USA

This is one of my favorite bras, its comfortable, it fits well, and it shaves years off my chest with a nice lift and beautiful minimization. I have it in black, purple, and red. Must have for full busted women! 32G from Palo Alto, CA, USA

Best bra ever. It's all-day comfortable and supportive, it makes me look 5 pounds thinner. The first time I bought this model I was a little afraid of the price, but it turned out to be a good value -- that first one is still in good shape after more than a year of heavy rotation. Now I want to order them in bulk! Cat from Chicago, IL

This is a bra which I cannot find in my local market but was I introduced to Chantelle a few years ago. The fit is great, the lace fabric is pretty and washes well on gentle cycle. I'm glad a found such an efficient delivery system as herroom.com. Carol from DIBERVILLE

Although I followed the instructions for measuring, this bra feels tight and scratchy across the back. It IS pretty, though, and I hope to lose 5lbs or so and maybe it will be more comfortable! Marianne from West Milford/NJ/USA

If you are heavy on top ( not firm or with augmented breasts), this bra will not give the support you are looking for. The straps and material overall is very stretchy, seems much more so than my last bra from Chantelle. I feel money could have been better spent on a Wacoal bra, but decided to keep it because I only came to this realization after wearing it for a day (took tags off). I still spill out of the side on the slightly larger breast, but this is true with no matter what type of bra I buy.The front of the bra just stretches with the heaviness and so that causes the underwire to sit on my belly/rib cage in an uncomfortable way.The only way I can get this bra to keep everything in (somewhat) is if I adjust the straps very close to the cups. The problem with that is it causes the band to slide up your back, and so you pull that down, but then you need to loosen the shoulder strap to get it comfortable. The seam on the right side is digging into my skin and it feels very bothersome by the end of the day as a result. I am not quite a 32 band, but a little less than 34 because I recently lost some fat in that region. I am almost a DDD in one breast and DD in the other. Buying the right bra is a very frustrating experience for me, especially when I spend near a $100 or more on bras to find something that makes me feel and look better. It looks as though plastic surgery will be the only remedy. With all the money I have spent on bras, I could've afforded the surgery by now. I will still give 4 stars because they are high quality, just not for those of us with heavy breasts. Michelle from Ma

The other day I noticed that one of my favorite dresses wasn't hanging right on me. I realized it was because of my breasts and it hit me that it was time for new bras. I did hours of research and used the BraFinder, and this bra kept coming up as the recommendation. I bought 3 of the Chantelle Rive Gauche 3 Part Cup bras and matching panties. A huge splurge for me, but so worth it! I understand why this bra is so expensive. It's perfect. First, this is the first time I've ever had a bra be able to support me on the sides. The bra brings my breasts to the center and up. It rests flat on the breast bone, and the lace lies flat also, so I can wear it with almost all my clothes with no show-through and it's super-comfortable. I put on that dress and the difference was huge. I look and feel great in this bra. And it's so pretty! This is a big investment, but so worth it for the support, quality, and what it can do for your figure. Teresa from Austin

Band runs small had to buy an extender fitted professionally for this size band. But it is the best bra for comfort the underwire does not poke, it is not to high on the sides. Have bought two and will buy more. Rita from WI
