One of the grand Parisian lingerie designers of the 19th century, Chantelle changed the face of lingerie. Hailing from the romance capital of the world, this dreamy brand has long been the champion of the provocative woman, from the urchin silhouettes of the twenties, to the wasp waists of the 1950s. Cut to today and they still sit at the helm of the lingerie world, bringing a little french ooh la la to us all.

Seamless Chantelle

Pioneers of the seamless bra in the early 70s, Chantelle is still the go-to brand for this modern staple. Although they're designed to fit flawlessly under figure skimming outfits, seamless bras needn't be boring. Chantelle's classic designs are given a twist with lace detailing, subtle patterns, standout colours and scalloping, but you can still wear them beneath t-shirts, long sleeve tops and bodycon dresses. Matching knickers bring the look together; French knickers will sit beautifully beneath a-line skirts, lace dresses and loose fit jeans, but look to Chantelle's strings and thongs for a flawless feel beneath pencil skirts, pencil dresses and skinny jeans.

Sultry Chantelle

Chantelle is the ultimate excuse for romance, with designs that ooze classic sultry appeal. Chantelle's underwired bras will give you firm support and an alluring shape to wear beneath many of your staples. The brand's sensual designs are also perfect for the lingerie as outwear trend. Choose a beautifully crafted lace balconette bra from Chantelle to flash beneath blouses and shirts. In the cleavage bearing 90s the company sat at the forefront of the trend, and you can still make maximum impact in a Chantelle push-up bra. Wear yours with everything from low-cut cashmere sweaters to v-neck dresses.
