This cup is perfection.Supportive, in a non constricting way. Deep enough that if you do have implants it doesn't cause your cups to runneth over but contains them in a perfect fashion. The lacy lies flat perfect for any t-shirt! This bra fits so well ; I have to pick up a few more in all the color! MLady from So Cal

I love the fit of this bra, how it makes me look in my clothes, and of course it's the prettiest bra ever. Mary from St. Louis, MO

I agree with positive comments. This is my first Chantelle bra that truly fits. The band fits, the stays on the side hit me where they're supposed to and the center fits right against my chest wall. The cups are a little stretchy, so they seem like they'll adapt to your figure. The top edge of the cups is thin elastic, so no gap. Because the bra is new, it's very close fitting, not enough for the double-boob effect, but does have the tiniest pooch of skin. A few washes and dropping the 5 lbs. I gained over the last two months will make it perfect. The 34 (F) was way too stretchy in the band, and the cup doesn't seem to encompass all the breast tissue (even though the wire is probably the same as the 32 G). A natural shape, very pretty & very comfy. What's not to like? Saruko from Oakland, CA

I purchased this Chantelle bra along with Chantelle 2361. I am absolutely amazed that they both fit! It is so difficult to find a bra in my size. A bra that is comfy, and not matronly, & that doesn't give me a freak shape. I have been searching for so long! The majority of bra companies cater to small sizes. This bra gives me a great shape, it's comfy, it's sexy, it's quality. I had seriously given up. This was my last attempt and I spent a lot more than I normally spend on a bra...but I am so happy I did! I found my new brand. I am so happy! Thank you Chantelle for making a beautiful bra in my size. MARY from CHICAGO, IL

Beautiful bra. But the wires poked very bad. Sent it back.

Chantelle Response: Because you are petite in height, where the underwire sits under your arm can be a problem. Chantelle makes many different 3 part cup styles simillar to the 3281 that would solve your problem. We would suggest you try the following styles which have a lower underwire height under the arm. Promesse 3635 , Pont des Arts 3946 or Amazone 2101 T Oconnor from Brighton, Tn

I wore a perfect 38 C till I hit and moved through the pause, at which time the girls grew and grew. I have not had a bra that fit well since this enlargement occurred, and since it was not implants they were heavy. I bought this very expensive product, after reading the reviews, and I got to say my girls are looking good, and they love the feel of the fabric my shoulders are happy, due to the weight distribution, and I love this product.

Excellent fit & support. First time I tried this on I was amazed @ how comfortable this bra is. The bra is very pretty & is smooth under garments. This is my new favorite since the Chantelle Legend was discontinued. I will be ordering another Rive Gauche. Deborah from WA state

This is one of the nicest and most comfortable bra's have worn in years. I highly recommend it. I know it is pricey, however this company from past practices has lasted longer than a less costly bra. dolores from sandy hook,ct

I recently had a bra fitting at a department store and was told I am size 34D. I was wearing 34C. I purchased this bra for the looks, and support. At first, it felt great, but after a few hours the underwire is digging into my breastbone and under my arms. Maybe the cups are too rounded or come up too high for my frame. I am hoping it will improve once it is washed because I love the look, and fabric is very comfortable, especially for a lace bra. Kristen from Boston, USA

This bra is wonderful. I tried on a couple of Chantelle 3-part, cut and sew bras and they were all really nice. I think it's worth it to pay the money and get a well-designed bra, with a band that sits close against the body and anchors the cups. I chose this one because: (1) the lace texture on this one seemed to be least visible under clothes, compared to the others, (2) good coverage (no 4-boob effect), (3) it's beautiful! and (4) the pale pink matches my pale skin tone.

Because I love Chantelle, I took a chance on this bra knowing that I don't personally have the best of luck with anything but a demi style. I tried to get used to it because it was very supportive and looks good under tshirts but I ended up really wishing that I had not bought it. My cup size features side stays which are completely unnecessary for me personally and extremely uncomfortable. I don't think the side stays lie on my body where they are intended so one of them popped through the lining and stabbed me all day until I could get home to take the darn thing off. Today, I noticed that the seams on one of the cups is beginning to come apart and I have not owned the bra for more than a few months. I expect more from such an expensive purchase but it's the first time I've had this issue with a Chantelle bra so I suspect that it had more to do with how poorly this cut of bra fits my figure than the quality of manufacture. Lesson learned. Little people need little bras.

Chantelle Response: We would suggest staying with a Demi style as it sounds like it fits your body type comfortably. We would suggest Chantelle Demi style bras such as Bastille 3995 fuller coverage Demi or try a 3/4 coverage T-shirt style such as C Chic 3581, Sublime 3951 or Icone 3858 .The 3281 is a 3 part cup which offers additional support and coverage. The frame of the bra maybe to much coverage for your body type causing it to be uncomfortable. Corri from Tempe, AZ

I am loving this bra. It is one of the most comfortable bras I have ever worn. I have always been naturally large busted and getting a bra to fit with out my shoulders hurting has always been a big challenge. It is really pretty and gives a nice shape. I am so glad I found this bra. Clara from Folsom,Calif. USA

I've worn Chantelle Rive Gauche 3 Part Cup Bra for several years, as I appreciate the support and overall look they provide; however, in the past the straps and trim were appealingly scalloped, adding the femininity I love. PATRICIA from NEW YORK

****+ Very expensive, but a WONDERFUL bra. The fit is perfect, it seems that you have to spend a lot of money before a manufacturer understands simple dynamics on large cup sized like me a "G." No fat squeezes out anywhere, no muffin top and no irritation at the end of the day. Only reason I didn't give it a 5 Star was the prize OUCH! :) Cindy from Ft Lauderdale, FL

I've been wearing this bra for a year. I have bought 6 during that time. I rotate everyday. I wash with lingerie detergent in a lingerie bag, on hand wash mode in a very nice washing machine. Consistently, I find the side boning breaking through the seam causing an unbearable painful poke on my sides. They are expensive and can't justify buying 3 more today because of this poor construction issue. Need to find another brand. It's a shame because I have never seen a more beautiful bra.

Chantelle Response: Bras should be hand washed only. Machine washing ,no matter how gently is not recommended for bras as it can damage or compromise the bras construction. Stacy from Lewisville, TX

Cup width was perfect for me, however other parts of cup were too large, it came up high in armpits and baggy in other areas.

Chantelle Response: The wings or underarm band on this style is designed for women that need additional coverage or height in this area. We would suggest Chantelle Cachemire bra 3371 3-part cup which offers less coverage under the arm than style 3281. Alana from Tallahassee, FL

Love this brand. It's as consistent as HerRoom. The fit is exact. The give is incredible, while maintaining it's shape and snug fit. My body moves a lot during a normal day, this bra moves with me. Love the sexy sheerness, too. Cannot say enough great things about this bra. Hapster from Chattanooga, Tn USA

Love this bra!! Very feminine looking but good support. Really wish the 32's came in a double DD as this bra runs small. (If it did it would rate a five star!!!) Shirl' from Baxter, Tn, USA

Just turned 61, and believe it's a shame that it took this long to discover what a truly comfortable bra for a large size woman is -Chantelle. One does not have to wear utilitarian bras with wide straps and plain cups. I'm indulging in incredibly soft, sexy, luxurious bras now and what a delight. There's no going back for me. Please take the time to be fitted by a professional fitter. You'll be glad you did. Paulete from Wytheville, VA
