really comfortable and beautiful, it doesn't stab into my armpits- I am very short so this is a problem. My only issue is that while this is a very pretty bra, the middle comes up very high, so lower cut tops will show this off- not ideal Desiree from Richmond, TX, USA

If you have a rating of 10 it would not be too high. I have been buying this bra for several years and just hope it is not discontinued. The cut of the cups and shorter sides are perfect for petites. At my age the ladies are not as perky as they used to be but what a beautiful uplift and shape my breasts have in this bra. I believe the straps are narrower than my last order and designed to stay on my little shoulders better, they are not sliding over and stay put. It is so comfortable and have started showing it to my older lady friends while on me and they say "where did you get that gorgeous bra"? Sandi from Brooksville

I can't believe this bra! I may have cried when I realized that people actually made pretty things in my size- because honestly when you get to a 38H no one makes it- and if they do its not pretty, its functional (and white only). Now imagine the surprise when I put it on and found it was NOT a medieval torture device! This bra is lovely, and fits like a dream. The lace on this is soft, the cups have a nice natural shape, I haven't had a trouble with the bra showing under shirts and it is probably one of the most comfortable bras I have ever owned. I don't have any low cut shirts (its a new realization that bras other than sports bras are supportive- and this is), but I think it would show if you were to wear a lower cut. RHB from NY

I took your bra fitter test and this was one of the choices that was suggested. Well I love it! This is the best bra I have ever owned. This has them all beat. It is so comfortable, you forget your wearing one. Malinda from Calif

very well made, fit was good but with my skin I could not wear the little lace that on it. But for someone else would be perfect. would recommend. The only reason I gave a 4 star was because I could not wear it due to the mild soft lace. ruby from norwood, ga USA

I recently got fitted as a 36H. I was wearing 38DD bras for the past two years. This bra fits well. The center gore lies flat against the breastbone. The side and bottom panels are supportive. The top lace is soft (not scratchy), stretchy and lightly supportive. The underwire is a little high on the sides under the arm but doesn't bother me anymore after wearing it a day. Overall the shaping is OK but I wish it made my breast a little rounder. It has a more natural breast shape. The styling is somewhat sexy with the lace, but I'm not happy with the underwire between the breasts which sits too high. It shows with modestly low cut clothing If you want to show any cleavage this is not the bra for you. Also I wish it was more padded in the cup particularly in the nipple area to conceal erect nipples. The fit does not look like the image on line. On me, the cups look more like a balconette -- the angle is more horizontal from strap to gore, not triangular like shown. Karen from Baltimore, MD

I love this bra. I originally ordered one from another source and it is the best bra I have ever owned. The straps stay put and the fit is great. Unfortunately I only received one when I ordered two . I am in the process of returning the other item. Andrea Porfirio from Portland, OR

I am a short, full figured and big busted woman. For years I wore minimizers but stopped when I found this bra. It is my FAVORITE bra of all time. After trying several other mid range and high end bras, I STILL will ONLY wear THIS bra. Its comfortable, sexy, not itchy, gives great support, and holds up well after repeated washings. I only wish they went on sale a little more often becuase the pricetag is hefty; but when you wear 44E, the quality and comfort of a bra is worth any price. Love love love it! I have it in black, beige and cream...and would buy it in every color if it was available (like how about red!). Love love love this bra! Did I mention how much I love this bra? Ellen from NJ

After using the measuring guide & taking the what bra's right for you test, I ordered this one in a 38 G. Never thought I'd ever need that letter, but when it came I tried it on & it actually fit pretty good! The only downfall is that is has ripples/rinkles in the fabric because of the reinforced cup seams...it's def not a t-shirt bra, therefore it shows everything while wearing lighter weight shirts... For a bra being this expensive, everything would have had to be perfect for me to keep it...Sadly I had to return it...but at least I know what bra size, shapes, & forms to look for now. I will def try again ! :) lisa from Muscatine

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.

I really, REALLY wanted this to be The Bra after reading so many positive reviews. Pros: it looks beautiful, has a really gorgeous, classy, kind of vintage/sophisticated look while also offering full coverage and great support without padding. Side support panels are awesome. It makes your chest look so good! Cons: it turns out I might have a bony sternum? Or just the wires are not right for my body, because the center (gore) underwires are PAINFUL. They press into the center of my chest and leave red marks. I saw another reviewer mention the same thing. Reading the description of the bra now, I see that they do say that the center panel is "very comfortable if you have a high tummy" -- which I didn't realize meant it could be that uncomfortable. (I'm also 5'4" and maybe that makes a difference too?) Because of how beautiful the bra is, I will try to find a way to work with it (somehow adding padding to back of gore? If I wear it with a piece of gauze folded up, it feels a lot more comfortable!) Anyway, I am taking the plunge and ordering another Chantelle bra even though they are pricey just because I am optimistic that the next one I try will be better. Such a great product if you have a less bony/more upright sternum! Sarah from Minnesota

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

I had a bra fitting and discovered my correct size in a different Chantelle bra (the C Chic Sexy 3-Part Plunge Underwire), so I ordered the same size in this bra. It was not nearly as supportive as the other bra, and it squeaked! The underwire was so noisy, even as I was taking it out of the packaging and putting it on, that I couldn't have kept it even if it fit. Nicole from USA

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

Very beautiful but uncomfortable bra. In fact, the middle part is so bad that it hurt between my breasts. I had to send it back. Chana from New York

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
