              • Made from 95% Lenzing Modal® | 5% Spandex

                Made from our buttery-soft Lenzing Modal® blend fabric. Modal is a naturally derived fabric cultivated from beech-tree pulp which is sustainably sourced in Austria, and neighbouring countries. Modal yarn is created through an environmentally-conscious process in which 95% of production materials are recovered. Modal has 10 times the yield of cotton, and uses significantly less water. The fabric is OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified which means they are free of harmful chemicals. Learn about our fabrics.

                The Bandeau Bra is part of our up-cycling initiatives to reduce fabric waste and is partially created using excess fabric cut from our other designs.
              • Machine wash on gentle cycle, preferably in a delicates wash bag. Hang to dry. 

                For gentlest care, hand wash. Do not put in the dryer.
              • Fit Advice: The Reversible Bandeau Bra fits true to size and the wide elastic band provides light to medium support. To ensure proper fit, measure your bust. View our size chart.

Driven out of a desire to make the Chrysalis Cardias easy and functional as possible, we decided we needed to make a bra that could keep up with its versatility. Fully reversible, the Bandeau Bra also features a wide, comfortable band that  provides medium support. Designed with the Cardi in mind (but not limited to it) this bra can be paired with other shirts that are too tricky for a regular bra to match.

I was hopeful

I gave the bra 5* for design. The problem is the bra does not suit my body. XL fit fine but I had trouble getting the back smooth. I think the bra would be perfect for smaller busted women, that isn't me. I do not like structured bras, so I was hopeful

Very Snug Bandeau

I bought this to match my cardi but I do not find it very comfortable. I went by the measurements on the site but find the bottom band very tight.

Beautifully soft fabric and well made.

I am getting used to the slipping...have to pull it up frequently, but the band at the bottom is definitely tight I am sure I have the correct size. I think I will get used to it, having never had a strapless bandeau before. (Kinda wish straps could be added if desired.) I love that I can reverse it to have a new colour, and again, it's very soft and comfortable. I will be trying other products from Encircled for sure!

I love this bra!

Extremely comfortable for the girls!!


Love, love these bandeau reversible bras! Very comfortable & great under off the shoulder tops where you don't want bra straps showing!
