LOVE this bra. A friend had mentioned 'now that we're 50, we need to be wearing the good bras'..........I'd thought that I was..... But after doing some research I realized I hadn't been, and furthermore, I wasn't even wearing the right size! Thanks so much to HER ROOM for all of the help! This bra is definitely worth the extra cost - I plan on only buying Chantelle from now on. And thank you AGAIN HR for the detailed help! Deborah from FL

This isn't the type of bra I was looking for. It was by far the most attractive of those that I purchased, but it is way out of my price range. Lisa from Bellefonte, PA

Being older gravity has taken over my breast. I have been trying for years and spent hundreds of dollars on bras that just did not hold the breast up. After taking the "know your breast" assessment, I actually understood the type of bra I needed. I measured according to Her Room and ordered the Chantelle (the bra they suggested). This is the bra I've been looking for. It fits beautifully, is comfortable and my breast fit the cups perfectly. I highly recommend this bra. Jeannie from Little Rock

Fits perfectly. Very comfortable. Well-made. Would definitely buy another, but this one is built to last, so I may not need to for a loong time. Oh yes, it also looks great! Lisa from CA

For several months I have been looking for a bra that fit and didn't dig in to my rib cage (on the sides) and I had an extremely difficult time (all of the sudden I was a 32G and not a 32F anymore! ahhh!) I was fitted at Nordstroms and a specialty bra shop. I literally tried on every single bra they had in stock in my size and found nothing (unfortunately, at a 32G many bras were out of stock). Feeling desperate, I took the "find your perfect bra" quiz on Herroom. This bra was recommended so I bought it. And let me tell you! I haven't been this happy with a bra in ages! I was worried about the lace showing through, but was to the point that I didn't care as long as it was comfortable. Fortunately, it looks good under most of my clothing. I do have a couple of very thin tshirts that show through but overall I'm so glad I bought this bra. I now own 3 of them and couldn't be happier. Finding a bra that is comfortable is pretty magical when you need such a large cup size! Hallelujah! Missy from Salt Lake City/UT

This is not the brand I usually wear, the underwire in mine broke and I had to get a new one ASAP. I will only wear 3-piece bras at this size, as they traditionally fit much, much better. That being said, this bra has ALL elastic straps! Why would a bra in a larger cup size have all elastic straps? Bouncy, bouncy, bouncy. Plus with every bounce you lift a little more out of the top! NOT HAPPY AT ALL. I'm stuck though, as I only have a 'leisure' bra right now and cannot go without. I will say Never Again. What were they thinking? Ann (pending 12-27-2013) from Garland, TX USA

I absolutely love Chantelle Rive Gauche 3 part cup bras. They fit me perfectly and are beautifully made. I have been wearing them for about 5 years and though they are a bit more expensive than the average bra, if you want to look and feel very beautiful, as gorgeous as a French woman, they are worth every dollar.

Best bra ever. I highly recommend for any large-busted woman. It makes me look 10 lbs. thinner. Great support from a pretty bra. Lauren from Texarkana, TX, USA

I now have four of these bras and I really appreciate the comfort and fit. It is so hard for me to find my band size (32) in this big of a cup size. Thank you! ROSIE from NEWBERG

Wonderful Chantelle bra. Because of it's full coverage cup I was able to go down one cup size. Super support with a lovely look. Have ordered one in every color. Barb from Great Smoky Mtns

Shoulder straps are too narrow with no padding. Obviously, an F cup needs comfortable support.

Chantelle Response: If you are looking for wider straps, we suggest trying Chantelle C Magnifique Molded Minimizer Underwire Bra 1891. Althought this style is seamless it offers great shaping and support with shoulder straps that offer a slightly padded or cushioned strap. We would suggest that you double check your size because if the straps bother you on a regular basis with other bras you maybe in the wrong size. A simple check is to see if the back or band of your bra rides up your back. If it does than the back size is too big. This will cause the straps of your bra to do more of the supporting which will bother your shoulders. Digging into your shoulders. Sharon

I am very unhappy with this bra. This was a total waste of money. Tried it on - it was fine so I took off the tags and wore it. One hour later the wires were digging into my chest. I wasn't able to take the bra off until seven hours later. By then I had red sores where the wires were poking me. Have had positive experiences with other Chantelle styles but will think twice before buying another.

Chantelle Response: Style 3281 is a 3 part cup offering full coverage which could be the problem you encountered. We would suggest 2 things, first double check your cup size to make sure you are truly a C cup. (After all 8 out of 10 women are wearing a cup size too small and a back size too big). Second try a Chantelle style that has less coverage such as Chantelle Merci 3 Part Cup Bra 1741 or Chantelle C Chic Sexy 3-Part Plunge Underwire Bra 3641. Both of these styles offer less coverage in the center with sacrificing the fit . Carolyn from Moss Beach, CA

I answered the know your breasts questionnaire very carefully and thoroughly. I am disappointed that the recommendation for someone who was petite recommended this bra. The underwires dug into my arm pits. I was a little surprised at the stretchy straps for the cup size, but had the underwires not been too big, I would have tried them out. The cup size did fit well as did the band size. In my opinion, it took too long to receive my order, almost two weeks, but I guess that is what comes with free shipping and I am somewhat impatient to receive items ordered online. Pretty bra, but not for me. I will be returning. Debbie from Virginia Beach, Va

This is the only brand I wear since I found how wonderfully Chantelles fit. This new bra is as good as the last five, but I prefer the slightly wider/stronger straps they used to use as they allow less bounce. This won't keep me from buying more, it's just that I've noticed the difference. Sue from Tigard, Oregon USA

I think this bra is my new best friend. It fits completely perfectly and puts "the girls" exactly where the should be! I keep catching myself in the mirror and wondering who they belong to! I've been using molded cup bras for years and have avoided chantelle due to the higher price, but the support of this three-part cup is unbeatable. I'll be buying more when my budget permits! esta from Dallas

I love the fit and my straps don't slide down off my shoulders. I will order again from this Company. I need a t-shirt slightly padded for summer, any suggestions would be nice. Have a nice Day!! Your service was timely . Emiy Emiy from Barneveld, WI

This bra is beautiful and felt like it would be supportive. Unfortunately, the band is too big and the cups felt slightly large. The band only feels secure on the last clasp. I think I need a 30D, but I didn't see that size available. MEL from FL
