The New Comfort: Who does it best? (Chantelle, Knix, EBY)Posted: December 30, 2021
Back in the Day (November 17, 2013 to be exact) dievca found Lingerie Comfort with Hanky Panky – In the 8 years since – the rubber has pulled out of the lace, there are holes and many pieces of dievca’s Hanky Panky have been retired. she hasn’t bought anymore and she’s glad that she didn’t because she’s moved on to a set of Chantelle SoftStretch in Leopard Print ($54/$20):
A new level of comfort has been found!
A new “go to” brand for the 3 C’s: Color, Comfort and Curves!
That said, dievca bought three additional sets of comfort underwear- one from Chantelle in Forest Green ($58/$20), one from EBY (Empowered By You – a “do good” business) – in Blue Meadow ($48/$22) and a final set from the Canadian Brand “Knix” LuxeLift in an Anna Sui collaboration pattern ModFloral ($50/$25):
Here’s the ranking:
- CHANTELLE – The SuperSoft fabric is….super soft, yet the bra’s hold up the girls well. The bra padding is not removable, but it isn’t too overwhelming either – no strange shapes. The fabric is very smooth and very comfortable.
- KNIX – The knix set starts out awkward to put on, but then molds nicely to the body. dievca wore the set with the removable bra pads inserted, she’ll try the top without them next time. The bra pads looked fine, they did add a little bit of extra when dievca does not need it. There were a couple of seamed rubbing “hotspots” that disappeared as the day went on.
- EBY – The EBY set was easy to put on, but the cut of the bra armholes is high. That is where the seams on the sides of the bra rubbed dievca, all day – she had to keep adjusting the irritation point. Was it horrible? No – just there. Maybe it will disappear with washing. The bra cups are removable and in dievca’s case not necessary – but they didn’t look strange. she will try wihtout the pads on the next round – maybe that will stop the rubbing. The bottoms were very comfortable.
Conclustion – all three (four sets) are nice, but the little bit extra you pay for the CHANTELLE set(s) is worth it.
