This is a bra that I both loved and hated when it fit properly (I've lost weight). THere are many great things about it - nice separation, the center gore fit flat against my chest, the band was wide enough to be comfortable, and the pattern of the lace both pretty but not so noticeable that I couldn't wear it under a T-shirt. But the underwire comes up quite far underneath the armpit. I had days when I could wear it for 12 hour stretches, and days when I had to change at lunch into a different bra because I couldn't bear the jabbing any longer.
Because the underwires do come up high, expect a bit of antiperspirant staining.

It's like the gods are singing. I've lost enough weight/inches that this fits me almost perfectly now. Chantelle will likely become my go-to brand from now on, since I know I fit in their range and the likely sizes I will fit into.
I do have my standard issues of the cups being slightly too tall for me, but the magic of stretch lace makes it okay.
FYI: I know this is supposed to be equivalent to a 34FF in UK sizing, but I think that's false. It's way closer to a 34G or 34GG, in my opinion.
No longer fits me as I've shrunk. I will find this bra in my new size as soon as possible.

Thought 32 might be too tight so I ordered a 34H. I need a 32, maybe I (US). Can't fill out the bottom of the cup and the straps are a bit too wide, but not as wide set as my Fantasie that keeps slipping off my shoulders. We'll see once I start wearing it. The underwires poke into my armpit, but again not as bad as the other one.
Do I sound like I'm settling? I am. I will keep this one because it fits better than most of the others I have. Even though I don't fill out the bottom (despite scooping and pulling up the ... band and all sorts of other tricks), I think the bra gives me a nice shape. And I have been wearing a reasonably correct size for about a year (and not consistently), so I probably still have some remigrating going on. The bra seems well made.
Update: Dec 2012. Armored breastplate. Wires poke into my armpits. Finally bent them slightly and they feel much better. Feel like they drag my breasts down a little--perhaps because the band is too big.

I’ve had this bra for ages... 4 years, maybe? I honestly don’t even remember. So my measurements for it may be above the average for this size, but the band has always been very stretchy. You will probably want to size down in the band and up in the cup. (I believe when I bought this one, I ended up buying my normal size but wasn’t wearing it on the loosest hook.)
This style is more narrow in the wire than my Chantelle Parisian Allure Lace Plunge Bra (2231) so it’s a good choice if you have a more narrow breast root. It follows my shape better ... behind the breast and doesn’t sit back too far under the arm. The gore is a little wider than what I need, but it’s not uncomfortable. It touches breast tissue, but it tacks, too.
This is a pretty bra that lasts for a long time, and it creates a natural, rounded shape. The lace is smooth under most clothing. The top part of the cup has a little stretch, which is great if you have soft tissue, breasts that fluctuate in size, or one breast that is larger than the other.
I can currently wear the 75H on the tightest hook or my old 70H on the medium hook, although I think a 70I would actually be perfect for me right now, except that I don’t think this bra is available in 70I.

This bra is definitely too big (normally wear 28G, this is a 34FF) so I can't really give a good review, really only reviewing so that this bra doesn't have a "sad face" Saw it at a thrift store and figured I could find it a good home by selling it here or through r/braswap. The center gore of this bra measures 3 centimeters wide, but 1 centimeter of that measurement is fabric between the cups, so if your breasts are closer than 3 centimeters the excess fabric should fold and the wires should get pushed together, making the gore narrower. If I push them together they can actually overlap a little due to the wiggle room created by the excess fabric, and at that point they're narrower than 2cm. If you were to remove the bow I imagine they could over lap even more.

I love Rive Gauche but this one is too small in the band and to large in the cups. going to give it to a friend. Got it from a Bratabase user on a bra transfer.

(Tried on in store)
Mostly okay in store, but...
~WIRE probably too narrow
~ BAND perfect
~ CUP quadboob on right, a little too snug in both, but the stretch lace disguises it
~ STRAP not too wideset (shock)
It felt fine in store, but I suspect the wire will start hurting because the cups are slightly too small. I wish they made this in a UK G or GG (US I or J).
I am considering getting it in 36H and shortening the band.
