Went bra shopping last night with my DD's. I realized it has been about a year since I last bought bras for all of us. My Chantelle's have held up pretty well, except for two that I wear the most (tee-shirt type bras in regulation nude). They needed to be replaced.
Was a little disappointed because the model I like - the 3061 - is being discontinued. Why do they do that? Sigh. I ended up buying the replacement version (sorry don't have the model # handy). It's nice, fits about the same, BUT it is only offered in black (don't need) and toffee.
The toffee is probably a great nude for the vast majority of people, except those of us who are very fair. I suspect it is going to show under white tops, because of the contrast. I was told there is no other shade of nude in this style being offered by Chantelle. I tried on another style in a lighter nude, but it didn't fit me well.
This morning I went searching the web, and I did luck out finding the very last 34B of the 3061 in a light nude, for half the price. So that is good. But I'm just sad I can't find another one!!! One more would be perfect; I'd be all set for another year.
Anyone have any suggestions for alternative brands to try?
P.s. DD16 did not luck out at all this time... DD15 liked the updated version of her CK bra, which has a racer back, very helpful for her since she lives in tanks.
