I am a breast cancer survivor. Part of my left breast was removed and after lots of radiation I probably need a C-D cup on my left breast. I need at least an E cup on my right. This bra fits both cups and give me the support I need. I love the materials it is made of; soft but yet supports. I have sensitive skin and this is important. Herroom was easy shipping my order in a timely fashion. Thank you. Georgia girl from State of Georgia

This bra fit wonderfully from the get-go. I subtracted one star because the underwire digs into my sternum a bit, but given the overall comfort, support, and uplift, I consider this a small sacrifice. Andrea from OH

This bra quickly became my girlfriends favorite bra. And she looks great in it. Perfect fit and very comfortable. I ordered a similar one for her for Mother's Day. Tom

This underwire bra fits me perfectly. I had a professional bra fitting and this was one of the many I tried on. The minute I put this one on I knew I found the bra for me. It has what I'm looking for: supportive underwire cups and all-over lace for a feminine look. Submitted from TheUndies.com

I love this bra!! It's comfortable and gorgeous. As someone who can't wear "plunge" bras and needs a lot of support, it is very rare to find a bra that works--AND makes you feel sexy at the same time. It's not a T-shirt bra, but the lace shows through shirts less than most other lacy bras do, which is nice. Rebecca from Boston/MA/US

Love it! Just ordered another color. Fits great, even on my slighter smaller side. Super comfortable. Supports well. Like the higher sides. Finally, I found a style and brand that fits me! I found the sizing guide on the site very helpful. Deb from Millcreek, Utah

I must have done the quiz incorrectly because this bra did not work for me at all. After breastfeeding two children, I'm left with little to no volume in the top of my breasts. This bra showed that. The top of the cup was wrinkled and not at all attractive looking. The bra itself is beautiful and I'm sure it would be great for someone with a full cup. But if you are lacking in volume at the top, this is not the bra to help correct this.

Chantelle Response: Hi Wendi! Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. We are glad to hear you think 3281 is beautiful (we agree with you!), but are sorry to hear that it didn't fit you as well as you had hoped. As this style is full-coverage, it might not be the best option if you're lacking volume at the top of your breasts, as you had mentioned was the case. We would suggest trying a style with less coverage so that the cups hit the fullest parts of your breasts, minimizing the occurance of wrinkling in the cups. Some great recommendations for you are "Illusion Unlined" (style 2141), which is a gorgeous non-padded style with average coverage cups that lay completely flat against all breast types, and "Basic Invisible" (style 1241), which has memory foam cups that mold to your bust from your body heat, giving you a custom fit with every wear. We hope this helps! Wendi from Boston, MA

Love Chantelle bras - they provide great support and are beautiful as well. This bra was terribly uncomfortable. I've worn this bra (same size) before and the wire on this recent one digs in and leaves indentations on my chest. It's quite painful. Not sure the cause - maybe they revamped the design? Would not recommend!

Chantelle Response: Hi Krista! Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback, and for your nice compliments about our bras. We are so sorry to hear that your new 3281 wasn't as comfortable as your old one, and we assure you that the design hasn't changed. One of the biggest reasons behind wire poking/indentation is due to wearing the wrong size. If the band is too snug, or the cup is too small, this can cause visible (and painful) marks on the body. However, if the fit seems to be perfect and you're still experiencing painful indentations, this style might just not the best option for you - the center gore of the bra might come up too high on your breast bone, or the underwire might come up too high and rub under your arm. In that case, we would suggest you try something with a lower center gore (more of a "plunging" neckline), and an underwire that doesn't come up as high under the arm. Our recommendation is the "Parisian 4-Part-Cup" (style: 1471) because it has the same great support as 3281, but its plunging neckline and lower underwire construction under the arm minimizes the chances of any irritation on the skin. We hope this helps! Krista from Saint Louis

I ordered a number of styles/sizes from HerRoom to find the best fit for me. This is a very pretty bra and seemed true to size, though it does not offer the same smoothness under a T-shirt or thin blouse that other styles do. I also found the underwire to be a bit less comfortable than the Olga bra and Vanity Fair bras I wound up keeping. I wish I liked this one more, as it is certainly sexier than the bras I kept. I wound up going for function over form, however, and I'm glad I did.

Chantelle Response: Hi MMS! Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. We love that you think 3281 is so pretty - we definitely agree with you! The cups of this style are made of a beautiful floral stretch-lace, and while the lace lays smooth under most tops, it might not be the best option when wearing extra thin tops for individuals who are more sensitive to lace showing through. In this case, a fully smooth style, like our "C Magnifique" (style: 1891) is an excellent alternative. Not only is this style completely invisible under clothing, but it also has a lightly padded underwire and straps, making it the ultimate in comfort. We hope this helps! MMS from Boston, MA

Not so comfortable to me.

Chantelle Response: Hi Faith! Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. We are sorry to hear that 3281 wasn't comfortable for you, especially because this is one of our top selling styles. We'd love to know more about what parts of the bra weren't comfortable so that we can provide you with some recommendations that are sure to provide you the ultimate in comfort. In the meantime, one style we'd suggest for you is our "C Magnifique" (style: 1891). From the lightly padded underwire and straps, to the completely smooth, non-padded, strech cups, and the ultra soft and wide band, this bra is the pillar of comfort at Chantelle, and one of our most popular styles with our customers. If you're looking for something with more structure, our "Parisian 4-Part-Cup" (style: 1471) has a buttery soft band, soft and breathable cups made of light mesh, and supportive seams in the cups that center the breast tissue, narrow the waist, and remain virtually invisible under clothing. We hope this helps! Faith from California

The middle panel is really uncomfortable -- this hard, pressing presence on my breastbone. My settled breasts leave the top of the cups unfilled and prone to bunching. the underwire does not sit flat on my chest. the lace shows through a thick t-shirt. However, the color is nice and the material feels nice and durable.

Chantelle Response: We are sorry that the 3281 isn't fitting you the way you would like. You had mentioned that the underwire wasn't sitting flat on your chest, which leads us to think that it might be possible you're wearing a band size that is too large. The reason being is that, when your underwire fits correctly, it should lay flat against your body at all times. A band that is too large can also cause bunching in the cup because there isn't enough tension in the band to pull the cups back towards your breast tissue. If you think the band is indeed too big, try this bra in a 34F (which is the sister size of your 36E). If the fit seems correct, then this style just might not be right for you. In that case, we'd suggest our "C Magnifique" (style 1891), which has completely smooth, soft, full-coverage cups, lightly padded straps and underwire, and a wide band that supports busts, while smoothing the back.

Great bra! It has always been so hard to find a bra in my size that fits properly and support. This one gives me great support and I don't have any "boob bulge" popping out! The only con for me is the side wires are a little high and rubs my underarm. Other than that it's very comfortable and I will be getting others! Michele from Raynham, MA
