  • Perfect fit
  • Chantelle bralette fits very snug for first few days but then the magic happens. The fabric relaxes a bit. Not much, but a little bit. The band across the bottom keeps the bralette from riding up and the wider stretchy straps keeps it from falling down. The Chantelle bralette has supportive side seams to give an underwire appearance. I was wearing sports bras daily but now have discovered this bralette gives me a much better look and so much more comfort. I wear 36B normally so I purchased the M/L. I have also just purchased my second bralette with intention to get a couple more.

  • A great bra
  • I bought this bra in a size 40G. When I bought this bra I didn’t know what to aspect but it turned out to be a really great bra. The bra is really comfortable to workout in and the band doesn’t rub my back when I sweat. The straps adjust enough on my low shoulders and don’t slide off when I jug.

  • Great bra, 1 drawn back
  • Not for those whose breast tissue goes more onto the sides of their rib cage or under their armpit. Much better suited to those whose breasts sit right on the front of their chest. However, rather than return im keeping it because it gives a great shape under Tshirts and the fabric is really comfortable and breathable.

  • Supportive & Comfortable
  • I pregnant with my first and wanted something I could wear all day at work. I'm a 32dd and with pregnancy breast changes, my normal bras just aren't supportive enough anymore. I have been wearing an extender so I ordered a 34dd. It fits well, but the center sits out from my chest instead of tight. I'm not sure if that is by design (the pictures show it fitting that way), a consequence of no underwire, or if I should have ordered a cup size up. Whatever the case, it's still comfortable and supportive all day!

The great thing about the bra is it is much cooler than the bras I have for high impact and summers in Phoenix are hot! I like the two layers of support and the adjustable straps.

  • A Bra That's Actually Comfortable!
  • I was looking for a comfortable bra to wear while working from home. I decided to look at bralettes. This one is very soft and comfortable. The hook and eye fastener makes it easy to put on (some bralettes go on over your head). The straps are adjustable, which is great. I have a short torso and always need to shorten my straps. After trying this on, I immediately ordered another one in a different color. I usually wear a 34H, (USA sizes) fastened on the loosest hook. The 34FF was sold out, so I tried the 36FF and it fits great.
