So, this is the first time I've tried a Comexim. I was always curious, but what I'd seen of larger sizes did not really appeal to me - the shape looked more flat and wide than EM's in my size range. But when this showed up in about my size at a very reasonable price, i had to try it.
Fabric - a very interesting lace pattern. I dont think I've seen anything like it. Its not stretchy and its slightly itchy, hopefully that will wash out. The band is very stretchy. While it does stretch to about 34 inches, I ... only had it on the 2nd set of hooks, because its reasonably firm.
Wires are really quite narrow. I tried to take another picture showing where the wires are with my fingers, but really you can tell because the wires are where it changes from sheer lace to solid black. They dont go in to my arm pit and my boobs are visibly bulging out of them, meaning they create a good backstop for my boobs so they dont go trying to escape in to my armpits. BUT the wires are softer than I'm used to, so if I pull more armpit flab in, it doesnt really seem to stay.
Also I think the soft wires may be contributing to the odd shape mismatch in the front.
Size. I THINK it fits? At first it seemed huge, but then I tightened the straps a LOT. which could mean its supposed to fit like a half-cup and i'm wearing it pulled up like a not-half-cup? Or maybe the straps are really long? Of course, because of the placement, the strap buckle on my smaller side comes way up to my shoulder, which promises to be uncomfortable.
Shape. Shape is weird. I cant figure out what I think.
In the front, the shape looks completely different on the two sides of my body. The cup seems to come up much higher on my smaller boob, which sort of makes sense, except that thats not how my boobs fit in other bras. Even tho my boobs are always different sizes.
There is a weird flattened area on my bigger boob (not far from where the flattened area is when I wear my 70J - Ewa Michalak » Sm Fiolecik (642) - which makes me think my bigger boob has a flat area?) . . . but the bra makes my boobs look pretty crazy round under a shirt. Of course, often that amazing roundness is the first thing to go when fabrics stretch, but still.
The weirdest part of the fit is at the top of the cup near my armpit, on the smaller side. There is just a ton of extra fabric. I tried to take a picture of me pinching that extra fabric, but I didnt realize the picture didnt take until I was already changed. But I DO have a picture where I dropped a little tub of lip balm in to the extra fabric. It looks kinda like its digging in to my boob, but its not. Its just hanging out in this pocket of extra fabric. There's also a side picture where you can see how much wrinkling there is in that same part of the bra.
So, what do I think? I have no idea. Advice? Comments?
