I have no idea where my original review is for this, it was during one of my first dozen reviews last fall when I'd realized Comexim was the light the truth and the way (can we discuss what an obscenely attractive thing this is, with it's swamp hag greengold and seawitch sinuous ribbon-tentacles?)
Redoing this review, which ... is a massive PITA because the BBASE really doesn't like the tag. Sorry I had a wild impulse purchase moment with Breakout who probably custom ordered the utterly bizarre UK sizing, for the typical cm increase, which makes NO SENSE at all! Should have ordered straight from the source.
So mine has a tag of '28JJ'. This come with a depth of 11.5" and a cup height of nearly 8" which is very firmly 'H' territory. Going over 28/60N listings for 3HC's on Breakout currently shows a size of UK sizing of 28JJ, as also being an American size 28N. But remember- we're dealing in CM here not inches.... So yeah /facepalm
This 3HC seems to be a tough one for a lot of people in the world in general. The shape is really deep, moderately projected and open on top with a little elastic stitched into the top. The band is insanely tall! Straps sufficiently wide for considerate support. Not wild about the wires which are real tall and U shaped (4.5 from bottom center, directly up the the midway point between wire arms). For even fullness with tall roots and moderate projection?
All of this asides, as an extra short doublewide full on bottom- I wear it A LOT.
Pros: -The most gorgeous thing i owned all year
-My god it's soft, like wrapping my tits in a pillow, airy yet blanketed, unrestrained but supported
-Hands down the most fluctuation friendly yet secure bra I own
-Perhaps this is down to size, nothing else in my halfcup collection of CH/CHP/3HC/various polish makes, comes close to the immediate projection I get in this
-So as a consequence, my breasts are never pushed from the cups out into the armpit or up in the amscye like with... well most everything.
Cons: -The breakin /ID-ing fit issues period was awful (many changes came fast! endless fiddling to keep it in rotation whilst my cleo mimi replacements lagged)
-Thicker taller band means you get a way tighter band for better or worse
-It's a tough cookie but still made of layered fine mesh net and lace so needs extra care on washing day
-Straps start of hard and inflexible so they cut in a bt on the edges, I recall getting welts the first few weeks which rather hadn't
-Because they straps max out at 15" long, which is way better that a whole lot in 28 bands but also, hi I have massive man shoulders? Just, I need more than a gradeschool child's sleeve depth, ok. I have long worn teen clothing as it fits everything else perfectly well so I know exactly how odd this scaling is. This is not a hard or weird request ffs- Just give us enough strap to cover a reasonable range of shoulder depth and let the dumb thing be taken DOWN to 10" good freaking night.
I truly adore that Sirene came with overlapped wires. It would have been heavenly had it been a fully narrowed gore as the gore at 3+ inches very competent but not Gorsenia levels of narrow.
Although I've only discovered the joys of narrowing one's own gore a few months back, it's not yet occurred to me to so that to Sirene. Maybe when I gain that annual Holiday Pound soon, & get desperate.
Due to the straps being rather on the short side of things, I picked out the armscye, deepened the curve to start lower and ascent further inward under the strap.
I've also fiddled with the cup height over the year to suit whatever fit I need, which seems to only be getting deeper (at center? sides? inner? who knows anymore).
