The fit of the cup is good. The elastic on the back of the band rolls up which makes you actually aware of it all day long. I've never seen a bra with this band size & cup that is less than 3 hooks wide. Sadly, I'm going to return this bra.

Chantelle Response: If the band is riding or rolls up the back most likely the band size is to large for you. You may want to go down a band or back size and up 1 size in the cup (38F). Please note there was no mention of how the cup fit and if it tacked against your chest in the center. Debbie from Marysville, OH

Originally ordered the same bra in 32E and exchanged for a 32D. I will keep this bra, but feel a different style might be better for my very out of shape self. It is well made and very attractive. Betty from Warner Robins, GA, United States

Beautiful, well-made, well-fitting bra; however too much bra for me. The molded cup was very heavy and firm. I am sure others would find it perfect for them. Jeanie from KY

After searching and searching.. this is the one. This is the best bra I have ever worn. I wish I had found it decades ago. Very flattering, uplifting yet rounding (instead of pointy), comfortable, supportive.. perfect. Perfect if you are larger and things are heading south. For being short person, this is terrific as well. Usually with a larger cup, it cuts under the arms, but this one does not. And, all this support and it is not a gigantic contraption. And, it dries over night so it is great for travel. Although thin, which is much more comfortable, it provides headlight coverage. It does not do well under a very fitted T-shirt because of the lace.. so I found that I love Chantelle style 3585 for that. Styles 3281 (this one) and 3585 are the only ones I wear now and love them. I hope they never stop making them. They are such hi quality as well.. every detail very well done. The larger cup sizes have wider shoulder straps that are still pretty, yet comfortable. I never thought I would find such great function in a pretty bra. What a bonus! Her Room has been amazing in dealing with all my returns over the years to find the perfect bra. Thank you. Now I am set. I know what to order from now on. Susie

It turns out to be less comfortable the longer I wear it, and although it seems to fit well when I put it on, I soon 'bubble over' the cups. Not the ideal style for me after all! Jan from San Rafael, Ca, US

I wear a size 40H bra. It's difficult to find a bra in my size that provides lift, separation, and support. This bra does all three for me. The lace cups add to the feminine styling. I wear with matching panties to complete a sexy look. SexyStylish from Austin, TX

I wasn't happy with the fit. I sent it back for an F cup size instead of a G. The 32 band size was fine.

Chantelle Response: Each Bra brand may run different in sizing. The 3281 is a 3 part cup style. These type of styles can offer more depth in the cup or fuller cup. Having a deeper/fuller cup may allow you to go down a cup size. Donna from Kincaid, IL.

I have this bra, which i was fitted for in a department store. It is great to be able to have another channel from which to purchase, and even better at a 20% discount! Thanks for the prompt delivery. Shirley from Rockvile MD

So glad I have discovered Chantelle and HerRoom. I may never buy another bra in a department store again (always a challenging experience). Recommendations are right on the mark, and Chantelle fits my needs! Anna from Richmond, VA

Well built bra. I've been wearing it off and on for more than a week and like it less as time goes on. The sides come up much too high for my petite frame, so the wires dig into my armpits and the material chafes. Other than it not being ideal for short, short-torso people like me, the bra fits well and gives a nice shape. RC from Pensacola/FL/USA

This is a very pretty bra. Unfortunately it did not hold up the girls as well as I expected. The "Amazone" bra that Chantelle makes is much better for me. My girls are droopy, in their old age, and the Amazone does a better job of holding them up. tashy from lakewood, WA

After trying what seems like hundreds of bras to try to find the "Holy Grail" I decided to keep this bra and another Chantelle, the Pont des Arts 3 Part Cup Bra 3946. Both bras have similar fits for me and similar issues. I found the underwire to still be a little long so it either pokes a little in the sternum, or under the arm, depending on how I've tried to move the wire. I am contemplating opening up the bra and trimming the wire, but until I am brave enough a little repositioning and it doesn't poke wither place. I have a small frame in the shoulder area, so it may not be a problem for you. I did find that this bra and the other Chantelle gave me great support and shaping. It put the girls right where they needed to be giving me a youthful figure and giving me back my waist. They are both very pretty bras, not scratchy at all. I like the lace under the cups in this bra better, but the rest of the look of the other. Melanie from Knoxville, TN

This is the 2nd Chantelle bra I've ordered-and unfortunately will be the 2nd one I return. The bras fit wonderfully, but the straps are too stretchy. There's way too much "bounce" for larger cup sizes. Janice from Arden NC

I used the bra finder to help me select a bra, and it worked! I LOVE this bra! For the first time ever, the underwire lies flat against my chest. One side is a whole cup size bigger than the other, and this lace bra is stretchy enough to fit both sides with no puckering on the smaller side, and yet is still supportive. This bra won't work very well under t-shirts as it is not smooth, but I will just try a different style when summer comes. It is a bit scratchy, but I am hoping that washing it will help to soften the fabric. If not, it won't matter a whole lot, I still love it. Brenda from IA

Pros: gorgeous bra, like the three-part style and will buy it again in another color Cons: I really like structure of underwires, but have never found a bra where the wiring is comfortable. Joyce from Las Cruces NM USA

The fit is very good for women with breasts that are close together, and it provides great support while being pretty and not itchy on the lace, which is a big plus. I only find the underwire a little tiresome, but not more so than other brands, so its a matter of getting used to it. 40 yr old mom from Atlanta, Ga

Very pretty, fits nicely, but not much support. Have only worn it a few times, and already it is pulling up in the back. Would not recommend for a full figured girl. Sally from Daleville, VA USA
