Synonymous with French sophistication, Chantelle is a prestigious
lingerie label with a rich history, enduring savoir faire, and
seductive design. As a family business founded in the 1870s, the
company pioneered the manufacture of innovative elasticized knits
and then flourished in the 1920s as flappers replaced stiff corsets
with sleek, athletic shapewear. Continuing innovation and
dependable excellence, especially in bra design, have made
Chantelle the lingerie brand of choice for tasteful women.
