Fit Advice From Chantelle

Chantelle is practiced at the art and science of designing quality bras with a fit that makes women feel comfortable and confident.

Checklist for a Great Fit

✅ Band

Check that the band is straight (parallel to the floor) and low across the back. It should fit snug, but you should be able to fit one finger underneath.

✅ Straps

Straps should be snug with some tension, but you should be able to run a finger under them comfortably.

✅ Underwire

The bra’s underwire should be resting under the armpit just behind the breast tissue, not on the breast tissue. If the underwire pokes or rests on top of the breast, you need a larger cup size

✅ Cups

The cups should lay flat against the body. If there is gapping at the top of the cup, you probably need to try another style or go down one cup size. If your breasts are “bulging out” of the top of the cup, you need to go up at least one cup size.

✅ Center front

The center front should be lying perfectly flat against your breastbone (between your breasts).

✅Comfort & Confidence

When lifting up your arms, your bra shouldn’t move. If the cup lifts up to the point of any breast tissue being exposed, then it is too small. Try some light movement, if your breasts don’t stay contained in the cup and need readjustment, the band is probably too big and the cup too small.
