Chantelle Bra - For most women the words French lingerie conjures the thought of delicate lace bras and matching panties, expensive garter belts and lingerie far beyond their means. However, nothing could be further from the truth.
Chantelle lingerie, though not as well known as popular North American brands like Bali bras and Warner bras is a French lingerie line that offers the elegance styling of European lingerie at mid-range pricing.
Since its introduction more than 100 years ago the Chantelle bra has grown in popularity with a devoted fan base that often spans several generations of women in the same family.
So, why do some women prefer Chantelle over other
types of bras ? Let's take a quick look...
Bra styles all over the world are as unique as the regions they come from.
And, while North American lingerie like Calvin Klein bras, Playtex bras and Maidenform bras are celebrated for their practicality and simple styling, European bras and intimate apparel are well known for their French eye to detail that so many of us know as that certain "je ne sais quoi."
Lace bras and matching panties combine the best of old world elegance and modern femininity that appeal to women of the world with sophisticated tastes.
Though lingerie and bra styles may change from season to season, Chantelle lingerie has several core styles that continue to remain popular.
Fete Bra - popular since the 1970's this rigid Calais lace underwire bra has a semi-pointed cup design that is reminiscent of the bullet bras of the 1950's.
Wider than average side boning and good structured support make this brassiere a good choice for C, DD, and DDD cups.
Rive Gauche Bra
Rive Gauche Bra - this soft lace underwire bra has more flexibility with seamed bra cups that offer fuller support.
A great option for heavier busted women, particularly those with wider set breasts.
Fascination Bra - this sheer lace and nylon overlay bra is a classic underwire.
Deeper than average constructed cups and a wider bra band make this brassiere a good option for women with longer breasts.
More Bra Sizes
While most French lingerie lines cater to smaller sized European women who are traditionally smaller busted, Chantelle bras include larger bra sizes for the larger North American market.
B cup bras, C bras, D bras, DD bras, E and even F are prevalent throughout the many types of bras that Chantelle offers, including:
...just to name a few. Keep in mind that although not every style is available in every bra size, there is an extensive range to suit most women
