Chantelle Sports Bra

Chantelle Sports Bra BlackI've long associated luxury lingerie brand Chantelle with delicate, flattering designs, and though the latter still applies, this Chantelle Sports Bra c/o is anything but delicate!  I was actually fitted by Chantelle for this sports bra over a month ago in anticipation of their Beat the Bounce event, however as some of you may remember - I injured my knee.  Talk about bad timing!  Though now that I'm back up and running (literally) again, I've put their sports bra to the test in a multitude of different ways.  Even skipping, and I hate skipping.  So, what do I think?  Does it truly 'beat the bounce'?

Chantelle Sports Bra reviewNo matter what size you wear, reducing the likelihood of bouncing is paramount when working out, both with regard to comfort, as well as to reduce any damage that could occur.  By not wearing a properly-fitted sports bra, we can potentially cause permanent and irreparable damage to our chests; strain to the tissue and skin.  Personally, this has been a bit of a wake up call for me; while being fitted, I mentioned how tight the sports bra felt, something which immediately alerted the fitter to my previously ill-fitting sports bras.  There should be no room for movement, not even a little bit!

Chantelle black sports bra review
Chantelle sports bra up closeOut of the many sports bras I've accumulated of late, there seems to be a definite divide: those that look good, and those that feel good.  However, the Chantelle Sports Bra* has pleasantly surprised me by achieving both.  The no-fuss design is totally up my street for activewear and enables workout clothing to be worn overtop without adding bulk (even racerbacks are covered thanks to the optional T-back clasps).  The flexible underwiring and lightly-padded cups also receive two thumbs up from me - ahem, I'm pretty sure we've all at some point visited the 'No Boobs' camp while wearing sports bras!

sports bottle photography Considering French brand Chantelle has over 130 years of expertise, it's not surprising they've applied their ability to produce impressive lingerie to sports bras.  However the all important question is, does the Chantelle Sports Bra 'Beat the Bounce'?  Yes, yes and one more time, YES!

With love,

Gabrielle x

  1. I had NO idea Chantelle made sports bras either! I really need to evaluate my collection because there is definitely room for movement in a couple of the ones I own.

  6. I don't think I've ever been properly fitted for a sports bra before and I'm pretty sure the ones that I own are ill fitting, considering your exposition of how a sports bra should actually feel like. This Chantelle one looks fab and it's great that they feel great, too!

  15. The clothing you wear really really affects your workout and this is such a great sports bra! I leans a lot on 2-3 brands for my workout gear but it's refreshing to hear about a new one especially when it looks so good on you! Plus the pictures are fantastic.

  17. I've had a few pieces by Chantelle, I think my sister first got me into the brand. I definitely agree with what you said about fit, and especially when I am working out, a proper sports bra is just essential. This sounds like you found a winner. Thanks for sharing Gabrielle. Have a lovely start to the week. <3 /Madison

  34. Ouch, definitely bad timing, but it's great that you're running again! I've literally never found a sports bra with the ability to hold my chest down, but you've really piqued my interest with the brand. Very helpful!

  47. You most certainly cannot beat a good fitting sports bra. I have definitely fell into the trap of wearing something that doesn't fit and with it being uncomfortable.. Don't work out.. Completely defeating the purpose! x

  50. This is a great looking sports bra...quite chic. It is nice to know that something that looks this good can give proper support to "the girls" I always have to wear two bras to hold them up and to keep them from bouncing uncontrollably lol

  62. It's always hard for me to find a sports bra especially with the coverage and protection. But from your explanation, this one is definitely something I'll look into :)

  63. God it's so hard to find a good sports bra isn't it? I have quite a large chest and sometimes it feels like nothing out there will 'beat the bounce'!

    I do love Chantelle as a brand though, they sell my all time favourite bras that I wear everyday.

  67. I'd no idea that wearing a correctly fitted sports bra was so important ! Thank you so much, I love how informative your blog is, that's why it's one of my favourites :) I'm definitely going to try one of these because my current sports bra is useless :)

  68. I was blessed (sometimes cursed) with a huge chest, so working out is always something difficult for me. I find I have to wear a couple of sports bras to keep myself tamed! I'll have to check this brand out, looks like it gives great support :)

  70. I missed this post! I didn't realise Chantelle made sports bras at all, and I've been looking to get a new one.
    This looks lovely on you and really very supportive too which is really needed.
