Sample Sale Report: Chantelle Lingerie
As our lovely reader Ellen shared earlier tonight:
"Chantelle is great. Bras are 1 for $30, two for $55, 4 for $100. Unfortunately 5 bras are $130 not $125. Undies are 1 for $15, 2 for $20, 3 for $25. There are dressing rooms, but the lines move slowly; there are also mirrors outside if you want to try on over your clothes. Lots of selection, mostly fashion bras, but some basic t-shirt bras too. Lots of stock for L undies, M and S are more limited."
Also to note, there was hardly any XS underwear to choose from. For all undies if you look carefully you can create some matching sets. If this is important to you, you might want to start at the undies and then find the matching bra.
The line for the change room is long, but they also have a bathroom stall for one individual at a time that you can get by in if you don't really need to see a mirror (as it's located very high) but it's spacious and private. I opted for this route and sort of balanced on my toes to peek the mirror.
Not only is the merch seriously well priced but the quality is great! I feel like it fits very well and is super comfortable. Some of the bras I purchased usually retail from $68-104 and since I bought 4 I was able to get them for $100, but I did originally want 5 and ended up narrowing down as the pricing doesn't make sense as Ellen mentioned to buy more than 4, unless you go to the next multiple.
For undies I was originally going to buy 4 pairs but they wanted to charge me $40, which I thought was silly considering 3 are $25. So I found 2 more pairs to purchase and I found if you buy more than one multiple of 3 they give you an additional discount, my 6 pairs of undies became $45.
Unlike other lingerie sales I have been to for most part the bins were very organized by size and there was nary a stray size or item.
