I really need to be more disciplined with my bra shopping or I'll have to swim through a sea of bras to get around my house eventually. I already can't fit them all in my drawers and I don't even think I've got that many... yet!
But I got an email earlier to say my new Comexim bra is on the ... way!
I ordered a size 50F/24E purely just to try out a Polish 24 band as I've yet to try this and find my bras stretch out far too quickly. Maybe buying 24 and using an extender at first might prolong bra life for me. It doesn't look like they offer cups under this size(?) so I assume this will be too big, but I chose a bra with cups that would be easy to alter.
I originally planned on trying Ewa and sent an email to place an order but I was then asked if I'd previously had bras from there, which I hadn't, and so was asked to give my measurements. When I gave these, Kaska said that '60 would be tight enough' which is also what I'd get using the +4 method. I've heard their bands run tight for some, so this could be perfectly fine for me as she says, but I can't find definite evidence of this and wasn't confident enough to continue the order, especially since it's so pricey and either size would be custom and non-returnable for the bras I wanted.
So, I went with Comexim! I emailed to check they still made 24 bands which they confirmed and said to just order any size and leave the desired size in the checkout comments. However, they also asked me to provide my measurements along with this, which I didn't do as I was worried they'd also put me at a 60. It doesn't appear any Comexim bras in 50F have been added before, so I'll be interested to measure this. Anyway, now I'm probably more nervous than excited wondering if my custom size got honoured or not. Let's hope someone wants a 65D if not!
I've also been looking at (and buying) French bras lately. To my surprise I noticed that a few French brands offer 26A in their children's/ teen range. Not that it's of any use to me, but I've never seen a 26A bra around before. I can't be completely sure about some brands, they are all French brands so this is only assuming they're using French sizing where 70 = 26, but the size guide certainly seems this would be correct. I'll see if I can obtain some of the 26A bras from different brands to measure as I imagine there's little data on this size around.
I'm still very interested in trying The Little Bra Company. I'm due to visit the US soon, hopefully early next year. I'm wondering if there's any physical stores or stockists where I could go in and try some on? Hopefully so!
