This is the absolute worst bra I've ever worn. I bought this bra in a 34G. The wires for the cups end pretty high in between my breasts and they stab into my skin. There's just a thin piece of fabric separating your skin from the metal, and it's instantly painful.
I love this bra! Usually I do not like molded cups; generally they are too warm, but mostly, I don't need any padding. However, my favorite bra brand is Chantelle. I love the Rive Gauche bra; it stays put, it is so pretty and it provides firm lift. I thought why not try this Chantelle T-shirt bra, despite the molded cups? I needed a smooth, firm and uplifting bra to wear with lightweight summer clothing. I decided to take a risk and ordered this bra in my usual Chantelle size.
The molded cups of this bra are the most thin I have seen, yet those molded cups sure do provide uplift, even in my size! The mesh of the band is 33% spandex; this provides a stable foundation for the cups. The band stays in place. I always look for a high spandex or lycra content. Check other brands: 33% spandex is hard to find. The mesh covering of the cups will not stick to your clothing. In an H cup the bra has 3 hooks in a band measuring 3 & 3/16" from top to bottom. This is wider from top to bottom than some 4 hook bras- another feature I like! I do not want the appearance of width, so I appreciate that the criss-cross mesh band at the center front holds the cups together. The elastic straps do not slip because they angle towards the center of the back. The support really comes from the firm spandex mesh band and molded cups. Quite an engineering feat!
In my size lift is crucial. This bra provides incredible lift, which gives the appearance of a longer, leaner torso. The bra not only uplifts, but dips low in front allowing for low-cut summer clothing and showing a bit of cleavage. This T-shirt bra really does the trick! Simply put: It is weightless, provides SUPERB lift and is unbelievably comfortable to wear!
This isn't a bad bra, but be warned, the edges curl up slightly upon just the first wear. So I can only imagine that will get worse over time. Also, it's not shown clearly, but this bra doesn't just feature a mesh detail in the center, the whole bra has mesh covering it. Also, the center doesn't press firmly to my sternum, and I doubt it would no matter what size I ordered, as the wire just doesn't feel sturdy enough to stand up to big boobs.
The good? It fits and is comfortable. It'll be a good comfy bra, but it doesn't look how I expected, nor does it feel like $57 worth of bra. I've gotten sturdier feeling bras with better material and details for cheaper.
Overall, not a bad bra, I won't be returning it, but I won't be purchasing again either.
I wanted a comfortable T-Shirt Bra that actually looked great under TShirts. I’ve been searching a long time because most Bras I’ve tried before make my 42D chest look even bigger & the wire always pinched. Then I found Chantelle Bras & that’s the only brand for me. Beautifully made, comfortable & make you look fabulous! This one didn’t disappoint either. Smooth under the TShirt, supportive & comfortable all day! Great prices on Amazon too!
