Chantelle Bras - Those who dread bra shopping will be thrilled to find that Chantelle lingerie specializes in styles and sizes that actually flatter and support fuller figures.
These beautiful full figured bras are a treat for the eyes, and come in several fabulous designs with matching panties that are sure to suit even the most discriminating tastes.
In boutiques or on-line, every customer is sure to find a brassiere that combines comfort, support, and a beautiful look.
The most vital component to finding a brassiere that fits is determining the correct bra size for your figure.
Many women haven’t had their bra size measured in decades, figuring that because they’re the same approximate size that they were then, they can still fit the same size bra.
However, even subtle changes in one’s weight or figure can cause a change in bra sizes. Wearing brassieres that are styled differently than your old brassieres can also change the size that fits you best.
Women with small breasts can typically do this themselves, using a soft measuring tape and instructions or a
bra size calculator that are readily available for free on the Internet.
Finding the right bra size yourself is simple; you measure once around the fullest part of the bust, and once around the ribcage, directly under the breasts.
A few calculations later, and you know your correct bra size.
Women who wear C bras or larger are advised to have their bra size professionally measured in a store or lingerie boutique, because home measuring methods become increasingly unreliable above a C cup.
Having one’s bra size taken by a professional is usually a complimentary service.
It's not necessary to remove your top or brassiere to be measured, and it usually only takes a few minutes.
When bra shopping, it’s important to let the sales associate if you're interested in...
...or any other type of specialty bras that have a slightly different sizing system.
Womens bras without straps are notorious for this; the lack of shoulder straps means that the bra band must fit more tightly in order to support the breasts without aid.
As a result, you will usually find that you need to purchase a different strapless bra size than you might expect.
Specialty full figure bras should always be tried on before purchase whenever possible.
There is no other way to ensure that your breasts are properly supported and that the bottom bra band fits comfortably.
Be sure to turn around and check out your rear silhouette in the dressing room mirrors.
This is the best way to be certain the bra band isn’t creating unattractive “back cleavage.”
Women of all sizes can find a Chantelle bra that will provide a flattering silhouette, comfortable support, and quality to last a long time.
Remember to maximize the life of your lingerie and intimate apparel by gently hand-washing it, using a gentle lingerie wash that contains no harsh ingredients.
