This is a beautiful and very comfy feeling Chantelle bra. It is not even close to my size. But it was just too nice not to pick up so that I could offer it to someone who was trying to find one. It seems very supportive. The 3 hooks are very sturdy, as is the back mesh type material that speeches across your back. The cup is a very soft t-shirt material. I think this would work great under any clothes because there is no lace except on the side boning area and the gore. It is just enough lace that ...you feel sexy and pretty but not enough that your wardrobe is limited. The bow and the contrasting stitches along the length of the 100% fully adjustable straps are really cute.
I would have really loved to find these in my size. I'm not sure that I can get that lucky, but hopefully I can help someone else who needs a nice bra at a good price. I found the exact same bra, same size, in a baby blue and I will be listing them both. They both look amazing and you really can't even tell if they've been worn or not. There is definitely no obvious wear and tear on them. I've got to get some bras that do fit me so I thought that it might help out to offer these for sale and then be able to use the money earned towards a well-fitting bra. Read more 153 more words
Since I love my Chantelle Rive Gauche 3 part cup so very much when I saw it's t-shirt style counterpart in my size and despite disliking this type of bra in most cases, I ordered it. The band is extremely firm, and I know that since I've only owned it (had in actual possession) for a mere couple of hours and have tried it on, I need to wash it prior to attempting to wear this bra to get rid of whatever fabric treatment was applied because, itchy.
I'm ok with style's the full coverage, it will make a good work or spending time with the anti-nipple twins (mom and aunt) bra option. The soft silky fabric over the foam is lovely -with a wash and some wears, the slightly unwieldy foam part should mold to my boobs. It creates a very natural silhouette and I think that if I didn't have evenly full boobs it would give an east-west look. Overall, I'm pleased with my purchase.
Issues: a little pilling, warping in the padded fabric. There is a floating layer of stretch poly, so the warping does not show. The microfiber cup lining makes it super comfortable, but not good for hot weather. Wires did not break through wire channel. The bra did not stretch out. The various fabrics are high quality. Side wings are strong and supportive. What makes this bra special, is that it's feminine but with cute tailored details.
I bought this bra by mistake thinking 36H would be the same for UK and for US sizes. So the label says it is actually a UK36FF. Even though it is too small in the cups, I can appreciate what a great shape it gives since it does not look too round as other moulded t-shirt bras. It brings breast tissue forward and centers it. Uplift is nice - not over the top but gives a nice profile. Straps are fully adjustable and have a good width. The 3-hook band is also an added bonus. Bones on the sides of the band contribute to keeping the band in place. It is a shame that it is too small for me, I would certainly try to get it in my size.
