    I am center full, close set, FOB, and my breasts sit low on my chest. I've had this bra about three weeks and it is my only really comfortable bra. This bra has a stretchy band. I read a suggestion to size down in the band and up in the cup, which I did (my usual size is 32H US/32FF UK) and it fits perfectly. There is enough depth to the cup at the bottom that the wire isn't being driven into my ribs, which happens with many bras. It's surprising to look at it that it would be so comfortable - just wires with tulle and ... stretch fishnet for the cups - but I have fallen asleep with this bra on. The straps stay up most of the time, and I have no problem with any of the usual problem areas. I have noticed the least bit of quadding on my larger side when I am carrying extra water weight, but no one else would notice it. Basically a really nice fit and a really comfortable bra. I've already ordered another.

    Extremely comfortable, stretchy but still supportive! Not like, firm-and-in-your-face supportive, but still good at getting the boobs out from under the arms and into a rounded front projection kind of situation. I like the vertical seams. Possible downside: Because the fabric's stretchy, I'm not so sure about the longevity, but we'll see.

    My shape: side-full, close-set, center-height, forward-facing teardrop with tall shallow roots, max immediate depth, wide full side roots, and self-supporting very firm tissue.

    Alright, so two days in a row now I've planned to write this review (finally), and both times I put this bra on and had no discomfort whatsoever, which is saying something since this is usually my most uncomfortable bra. Third time's the charm? Anyway, I've had this bra since last summer and just never got around to reviewing it. It's the suede colorway, which is a pretty good nude for me, if slightly dark, although I am pasty, and I have it on the tightest ... hook, which is still snug.

    Reasons it's uncomfortable: mostly the wires. Chantelle's gores and I just don't get along, because they're too tall and too wide and they poke and I can't seem to find a model that doesn't, aside from the push-ups which don't suit me at all. The wires are usually very firm, and extremely so in this bra, so any time I slouch, lean sideways, bend over, or even breathe deeply, the bottom of the curve presses painfully into the ribs that must be just underneath. (Except for, y'know, today for some reason.) Also, the fabric of the band is two layers of mesh, which doesn't feel as stretchy as the elastics at the top and bottom edges of the band, leading to some minor bulging and the sensation of the elastics digging in. Superficially, it's not the softest bra ever, but it is smooth under clothes and some might prefer its matte mesh finish.

    The cups, while not uncomfortable, have several signs of not being quite the right shape. They're too tall for me, with the proper apex sitting ideally about 1.5cm higher than mine (and in that case would better suit someone with a more projected and shorter root on top), so instead the un-padded cup collapses and the extra fabric wrinkles down by the wire. I think there's a little more apex projection than I need, too, but mine is moderate anyway and that's not really noticeable while wearing it. The immediate projection at the base is good, although still not enough, causing the bra to scooch down during the day. They're a hair too far apart for me, and I'm not sure if the top edge didn't cause some faux-quadboob on my tall roots when it was new, because this is the most closed-off of all my current bras and the T-seam cup style never works for me in any others.

    Good stuff: The wire channels have almost 2cm of space in them, and shifting the wires out helps immensely at the sternum and also at the wing, which would be tall enough but needs the backup from the wire because of my Super Side Boob trying to escape. Ladies with shorter torsos may find that the top edge of the side-sling panel chafes, however, because it is tall, but it makes me feel nice and secure, especially considering that the band tapers down to 4 (4!) sets of 2 hooks. The straps are fully adjustable, which is great, and also in a wonderful spot on the cups, which means no buckling on the top edge of the cup and no armpit blisters!

    Nice wide cups (finally!) but the top of the cup barely covers the areola. I prefer more coverage. Straps are narrow (well placed on the shoulder but skinny).

    Seems to fit well. No gaping or looseness. Sits flat around breasts. Not very pretty. But it does it's job.

    This bra is comfy and fits pretty well. It's not perfect. First, my bra is technically a size off (32E), but I later tried on a 30E at Nordstrom and it fit great. It slide down during the day, but I suspect that's the sizing issue. I haven't 100% figured out my shape, but I like this bra for everyday wear.

    Pros: Comfy, cute, easy to find at Nordstrom, fits for the most part
    Cons: It's odd that going down a band size, but not a cup size, didn't change fit. It makes me wonder if the bra is stretchy and how it lasts over time.

    This bra compliments my shape. It is just enough coverage and just enough support without being overwhelming, and the fabric is so soft. No rubbing or itching. It also comes with 4 sets of hooks. My one complaint is the bands are so soft that they almost feel loose. I know from experience this bra will be a little too loose after time, but it comes with the price of the soft feel.

  8. Good gore height for my narrow chest. Straps fit well and no problems so far. The colour is pretty awful, wish I could get a range of colours and it wasn't so expensive

    34: 7 Index Size (2 cup sizes smaller than my usual cup size)
    (usual index size= 34: 9)
    Pros:
    -Fairly Comfortable
    -Good everyday/ work bra--hides cleavage, minimizes bust size
    -Cup Seams offer decent support--2 vertical seams, 1 diagonal
    -Underwire does not stab me
    - Band has 4 columns of hooks --theoretically allows for a nearly 2 inch adjustment

    Cons:
    -Underwires are NOISY/ Creaky. Even when not wearing the bra, the contact of the wires with the wire channel fabric results in a creaky/ squeaky sound(this has been my experience in all my Chantelle bras.)
    -Underwires slightly wide.
    - Cups are 1 size smaller than my usual size, so they cut into the tissue at the top
    - Straps are wider than I would like, leading to minor discomfort when moving arms horizontally across my body (cups/ straps cut into sides of arm)
    -Band: I can already hook it on the tightest wire, but that might be in part due to my measurements and squishyness (my snug underbust measurement is 33")

    Really comfortable right when I put it on, cup material is soft and the fits well without squeezing me like some other 30 bands. Design is simple but pretty, not a lot of extra lace and doodads hanging off it.
