I fell in love with the look of this bra since my first Nordstrom trip.
It's simple, but gorgeous.
My initial try was a 32D, which cut into my tall boobs.
Second try was a 30D(wasn't my idea lol),30DD, and 30DDD.
So, as far as shallowness goes, I guess I'm not as shallow as I thought.
This bra seems like it'd be great for someone who is shallow and needs wide wires.
As for semi-tuberous/conical girls(I'm not alone right?), this one didn't work out too well.
The size fits as far as depth, but the width of the wires is really wide.
The biggest problem I think is the shape of the wires, which are ... like, well, a shallow bowl.
Surprisingly, I think I meed more rounded, less shallow, and somewhat more narrow wires.
Other than wires, the band on this particular bra seems longer than other Chantelles that I've tried in this model.
I've read others say the bands run big, but some experience what I do when I've tried them on im stores and say they're snug.
If you're picky about your bands, I'd suggest probably buying in store as opposed to online.
Fabrics are all around very lovely and comfortable. Inner cups are very smooth.
It gives a somewhat perkier shape, as I normally experience with this type of cup.
Straps are really pretty (ok, I'm a sucker for straps. Am I alone here too? ) but they seem very wide. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the bigger band.
Perhaps I should've gone down a band and up a cup instead of just up a cup.
Overall, very pretty bra, comfortable, feels very supportive, gives a nice shape, but I think this is really made for someone a bit shallower with a wider root perhaps.

I first bought this bra in my sister size, a 32DDD, in the nude/beige and fell in love with it then. My only complaint was that the band was a tad too big for me. So I knew the 30F would fit like a glove...and it is a PERFECT fit! I bought it in the black in the 30F, and laid it on top of my 32DDD, just for kicks, and the band is MUCH shorter and the cups are about half an inch deeper.
I first tried the bra on the loosest hook and loosened the straps completely. It didn't feel right in the cups and the ... band still felt too loose (I normally wear a 28). So I just went straight to the tightest setting (since this bra unfortunately doesn't come in a 28) and I tightened the straps about an inch and a half and voila! Perfection! I've had this bra on now for about 30 minutes and it is so comfy, haven't had to readjust and the band has stayed in place. I absolutely LOVE this bra!!! This is, by far, my fav unlined bra! Everything fits me just right! I feel like it was made for my girls https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
Usually, most unlined bras give me a very awkward, unnatural shape, even with a breast augmentation. But this bra is different somehow. It makes the girls look fabulous under clothes!! It gives a very nice, lifted, rounded shape without all the padding or hard, stiff moulded cups. It is a bit stiff and does feel somewhat "starchy" but I'm sure a wash or two will take care of that. I added a ton of pics under my profile of how nice this bra looks under a tank top. I highly recommend this bra if you're trying to find a good unlined bra with a great, NOT pointy, shape! I feel it is very true to size https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
Update: after wearing this bra for a few hours yesterday, I'm not sure why but it felt too tight. The top part of the cups were digging in a bit and I had a smidgen of quad boob going on. Could just be that I'm pms-ing and the girls are a little swollen right now. But I couldn't wear it all day cuz it was too uncomfortable. When I took it off I had a perfect outlined red mark of the entire bra! Esp at the gore. I guess I'll have to try again at a different time of the month https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />

>A nude bra that fits me! I've mostly only found Cleo bras to fit me, and I love that they're bright and happy, but a girl needs some nude.
>A plunge bra that fits me! Oh my gosh. My boobs ALWAYS fall into the middle and quad it up, but not on this one!
>The center gore DIGS into my sternum. Red marks and pain. Yikes. Even when I add an extender to loosen the whole band it doesn't seem to help. I'm going to hold out for a few more wears. I really hope it settles down! The center gore is very narrow and low. This makes for a great plunge, and good for lots of folks. I've never experienced this - don't know if it's because of the lowness, the narrowness, or what.

I bought this when I was still working out my size, as it was sold at Nordstrom and easier for me to get. It's a good bra, but made for a different breast shape I think, more full on the bottom. The cups are a bit big for me as well. It fit better than the other bras I had at the time (which were far too small) so I kept it. Material of cups is a bit scratchy at the unlined lace part, but wearable. Material of the fabric covering the underwire and elastic bits is very comfy, and that's the part that moves the most anyway. I bet this would be a great nude for someone with dark brown skin.

Love the look of this bra, is just a shape mismatch for me. Band is comfy but a bit too loose. Wires and cups are too tall, wrinkles on my smaller side.

This bra is very nice and quality built. I love the fact it's a plung and gives a fantastic rounded natural shape. The cup consists of two layers of fabric. A logo mesh over a sturdy nude color backing for the bottom of the cup with a more transparent layer behind the top portion of the cup. The lace detail along the top of the cup is visually intricate yet creates a flat smooth edge even under clothing. The wires are very sturdy and don't distort at all. The band is comfy but not as tight as I had hoped for. If only they made this In a 28 band, as I have to wear this on the tightest set of hooks right out of the gate. The straps are fully adjustable with an interesting gathered/pleated covering along the strap elastic. Overall I'm really impressed with this bra.

Awesome for projected, even/slightly full on top breasts with little/average separation

The Blue Klein color on Chantelle's C Chic Sexy Plunge (3641) bra is transcendentally blue. It's as blue as something can get, pure and deep and rich. I almost kept the bra for the color alone. I need more extremely low plunge, unlined, sheer, lightweight bras for summer, and this would've been useful in the coming hot weather.
I'm still confused by Chantelle's sizing, so I'm not sure if the 65G Chantelle is really equivalent to a UK 30F. The fit is good, and the center gore is quite low, which I need. However, the cup coverage was considerable. I imagine this is a plunge for soft tissue. Despite ... being low at the front, it has so much cup to contain soft tissue, I believe spillage would be minimized.
For my firm tissue, however, this coverage just makes it look like I'm wearing a lot of bra, despite the low center gore. [Hear a lament for the Blue Klein color here.]
Chantelle is a somewhat high end but not at the level of Prima Donna or Rigby & Peller in terms of pricing. I can really feel the difference in the materials. The fabric of the cups is scratchy, kind of like Cleo Marcie, which I had to break in. Compared to the Prima Donna Madison Plunges, which I have in three colors and were extremely soft right off the bat, the Chantelle C Chic Sexy Plunge feels tolerable but like I need to wash and wear it a few times. I never get the feeling I'm breaking in a Prima Donna.
But that blue! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

I like this bra a lot. I love how low the gore is. I like the detail on the straps. No complaints other than that the band is a bit too big and the cup a bit too small. :/ Wish they carried it in my actual size!

This bra is a disaster for me in both 65F and G - lots of wrinkling everywhere. I think the cups are just not deep enough for me - the G fit better as far as wrinkling near the bottom of the cup since it had more space but then the top of the cup was too empty under the lace. Just not a good match for my shape.
