The fitter described this as a bra that fits anyone. Unfortunately not me, but I'm not sure it's the bra's fault. I bulge out of plunges with wear, although at first the cups were nice and flat. The pattern is subtle and pretty. I think that if it fit me, this could be an every day bra. It isn't uncomfortable, though as with most 36 bands I've tried, it just stretches too far.
They sent me the wrong size in this bra, but it was still a solid contender! Extremely supportive without being stiff and molded, which I appreciate. Lightweight and breathable, too! My one quibble is that its shaping properties come from vertical seams in the cup that were very visible under my test t-shirt. Ridges on my boobs is not a good look. But under thicker clothing, I think I’d really appreciate the lightweight shaping. This bra is a definite maybe.
This bra is incredibly comfortable and wonderfully @minimizing. It works really well under loose/flowy tops as compared to other bras, which tend to create a shelf of sorts and create a "maternity" look. The only downside is the sizing limit: My 36H fits perfectly in the cup but the band is ever so slightly loose (it stays in place for the most part though). A 34I would be ideal, but it is not available in that size.
This is the most flattering and comfortable bra I currently own. Because of that, I wear it much more often than any other bra I own, which may be a factor in its demise. At 7 or 8 months old. the underwire broke out of the outer seam on the right side. I sewed it back in, but it broke through that. I sewed the seam closed again, and the poor bra has never been the same since. That underwire shifts through the seam and up into my arm pit every time I wear it.
It's still the best bra for me, so I'm planning to buy it again, but in multiple colors so I can be sure I don't wear it out so soon!
I bought this bra because it felt great when I tried it on in the store, and the seams didn't show under my clothes. Plus, the straps are fully adjustable, and I rarely find a bra that sits low enough for my torso. There was slight wrinkling at the top, but that happens with virtually all bras. After wearing it for about 3 hours, I realized that the band is way, way too stretchy and long -- and I should have sized down to a 32 band. The cups are too deep but also too narrow. So, I can sort of push all (or most of) my breast ...tissue into them successfully, but this mostly just presses my boobs down flat. And the underwire still presses painfully against the breast tissue on my larger left side. This bra has too much stretch in the cups and the band to provide any support at all. I think I found it comfortable because it was like having nothing on, except for the pain in my left shoulder that began after a few hours. It gives me no lift, forward projection or shape.
The fit is very poor on me, but I will use this on lupus high pain days because it is less painful than most... At least until I find a bra that actually fits, if there is one out there. This French/American H cup is much, much bigger than any FF cup I've ever tried on in a UK company. If you have narrow breasts, you might want to size down in the cup.
Chantelle bras, as I understand it, are designed to fit long torsos, narrow shoulders and wide roots. This one...gets a little closer to accomplishing some of these for me than most bras, but... It's still a terrible fit.
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.
This one used to be good for me. But then my breasts grew a little bit and now it's just too small. Not a lot, but enough to notice. Switched to the Elomi Caitlyn in the same size and that works much better.
This was not a bad bra but it doesn't fit me anymore and they don't make a bigger cup size.
