Chantelle lingerie comes, of course, from the French company Chantelle, one of the leading names worldwide in lingerie and certainly one of the most popular brands with women everywhere. Chantelle can rightly boast of a long and illustrious history, its brand and designs evolving swiftly over the years to keep pace with the changes women have experienced as their lives and roles in society have developed. Here, we look at just a few highlights of Chantelle’s lengthy heritage and explain why their latest collections are some of the best for women seeking to combine style with comfort on a day to day basis.

The company that has become the Chantelle we know and love today opened its doors as far back as 1876. In just two short years, its owners were already beginning to make their mark on the market, and demonstrating the flair for innovation that remains with them today. In 1878, Chantelle introduced its revolutionary elasticised fabric which stretched in two directions. By 1902, the Chantelle lingerie range featured their first elasticated girdles, offering a greater degree of comfort for women compared to previous unforgiving fabrics. And yet these new girdles were still able to enhance and emphasise women’s curves, making them flattering yet practical at the same time. And this is a principle that remains evident in the lingerie Chantelle still produces to this day: the focus is not only on the style of the garment, but on how it feels to wear it too. There really is no need to sacrifice comfort for appearance when you wear Chantelle!

In 1949, the company developed its Chantelle brand and gained massive traction in France throughout the 1950s with its slogan – backed up by the performance of its lingerie – ‘the girdle that never rides up’. The year 1962 saw Chantelle opening its first factory in Epernay in the Champagne region of France – which is fittingly still in existence today. In the same year, Chantelle expanded its boundaries by opening an office in Düsseldorf in Germany, beginning the international expansion that’s developed year on year. Today, Chantelle lingerie online means women everywhere can benefit from high end and everyday lingerie, all made with beautiful fabrics that offer a fit that can barely be matched by its competitors. The best department stores and boutique lingerie shops feature Chantelle lingerie UK wide, with its popular collections including Champs Elysées, Hedona, Orangerie, and, one of the company’s latest triumphs, Soft Stretch. If you want French style and allure with perfect comfort, Chantelle is a brand you cannot miss.
