This bra was pretty blah on looks. I ordered it online, and it appeared to have more solid of material on the bottom half from pictures I saw, but sadly it was thin mesh/lace with only a layer of lace over mesh on the lower portion, with double mesh for side support. So flimsy feeling and very little support overall. Sadly, the single layer of mesh on the very top caught on something and tore a little my first time wearing it. This was through my shirt (which was completely fine), and I didn't notice until I went to take it off that night.
Aside from the material, it is rather comfortable and the underwire does not poke into my underarm. The cups just barely fit me, and seem to run a tiny bit small on this one compared to other Chantelle bras I have tried.
Good: this bra has almost everything I like and need. Light material with moderate stretch, cups neither too wide nor too tall, comfortable straps, natural rounded shape. Not so good: price. Lace (but it's geometric, so a bit more to my taste). Very similar in fit, comfort and shape to the Chantelle Saint Michel Back Smoothing (2721) (which is the one I'll keep because it was half price).
Even though this bra doesn't tack and requires occasional adjustment throughout the day, it is my favorite bra I've encountered so far. It gives an up front rounded shape which is what I prefer. I should try this in the next cup size up I think. No padding, sheer cups that aren't very stretchy.
I love this bra! It gives a great rounded and natural shape while being extremely feminine in appearance and also very supportive. I felt amazing it in all day long. I highly recommend it to any woman with large, heavy breasts. One of my new favorite bras. I bought the 34g in Chantelle. As a reference I tend to fit great into a 32ff in Freya and Fantasie.
I was fitted at Nordstrom and this was one of their recommendations for me. It is comfortable, not scratchy in the least. it is somewhat supportive but does not push breasts forward. My shape wearing this is quite rounded. The lined lower halves of the cups cover my nipples and are opaque enough so they don't show through. The cups are stretch lace but there's a thin band of elastic at the top than cuts into my top fullness.
