This Chantelle Rive Gauche 3 Part Cup (3281) bra is gorgeous in person and my pictures don't really do it justice. The fabrics feel really durable, supple and expensive. The wire feels like it's made of adamantium. I get the feeling that this bra will probably outlive me. It gently hugs my breasts and the band gives me a little thundershirt hug (just the way I like it).

Soft lace, smooth lines under fitted shirts. There's boning on the wings a couple inches past the wires for side support. There's a little bit of sternum poking from the gore being high, and it separates my breasts completely, so no cleavage, but good support. The wires come up a bit too high under the arm for me as well, so there's some poking under one arm, and I feel they could be set a little bit wider to better fit my breasts. Some of those issues could probably be resolved by going up a cup size, though.

Cups fit nicely. Gore tacks very well. Nice shape. However, wire is a bit high under the arm, seems a bit pokey.
Overall a very good fit. Lovely lace that isn't scratchy and looks nice.

Quite comfortable and supportive. Lower cup and side support panel are lined with opaque, silky, just slightly stretchy fabric, upper cups are stretch lace lined with sheer tricot. Although this is full coverage, there's elastic across the top of the cups that cuts into my tissue just a tiny bit so if you have tall roots or lots of upper fullness this may not be for you. The back is firm with just the right amount of stretch. It feels very supportive. This size fits me like a minimizer. The straps come up from the side support panel but the side panel is angled in a bit so ... actually the straps arise almost from the center of the cup - a boon for narrow- shouldered frames like mine. I was able to wear this under a top that has a wide scoop neck. The lace is fairly flat and doesn't show through except under a very thin or tight tee. Since I don't wear those this will be a good everyday bra for me.
Update: I noticed the wires were a little narrow for me and were not containing my side tissue. I bent them outward just a little and now the tissue stays put but of course the cups are a little bit more shallow. I probably could have used the H cup in this bra.

Cups fit excellent, lightly lined but no padding, fabric is comfortable, not itchy. Now that I've had this bra for a few months, it is my FAVORITE. The band has stretched out a little, but not so much that I can't still hook it on the last hooks. Definitely want to get another one of these, best bra that I have atm.
UPDATE: Bought the same one in a different color!

I like the elastic at the top of the cup. Works well with monthly breast changes.

It comes up really inconveniently high but is really really cute. I wear it under tshirts in scenarios where I don't mind the purple lace poking out a bit. Makes me feel sassy.

The only con that I can potentially see at this point on this bra is that it may not be tight enough. I can stretch the band out quite a bit when I have it on, but it's nearly perfect otherwise. I feel supported and comfy. The material perhaps could be a bit softer - if you had sensitive skin it might be considered itchy.
