Fits

My Comexims are finally here! I'll input my Charme later, though the fit is pretty similar (with the Charme having maybe a teeny bit more cup volume, though I wish it was the opposite since I ordered the Rita with cookie pockets!). For now I'll start with this bra.

I ordered the Rita in a 70N with the following alterations:
Reduced cup height
Raised gore
Straps moved in
Added cookie pockets
Made into a longline
Extra column of hooks

The reduced cup height definitely works well for me. I don't have the strap gap that I experienced in the Sonia (disclaimer: Sonia plunge is my only unaltered Comexim, so I'll be drawing lots of comparisons to it). The cup height was mainly reduced near the outside of the cup, though I'm not sure how much of this is due to the fact that I raised the gore as well (which kind of makes it hard to reduce the cup height near the middle).

The raised gore also works really well for me. I don't have the same sense that I'm about to fall into the middle that I had with the standard gore height. I think that it works because I'm not super close set and don't have tons of inner fullness. It makes the bra fit more like a balconette, which tends to hold everything in a little better for me.

I'm unsure as to whether or not the straps were moved in. They look like they're placed similarly to my Sonia, which was unaltered. I'll probably have them moved in a little more next time, but they work well enough as is.

I haven't tried this bra on with pads in the cookie pockets yet, but I'm glad I added them. There isn't really ever a downside to adding them, so I've added them to all of my Comexim orders (except the Charme because I forgot). I'm hoping that I'll get a little more oomph with pads in, since the alterations I requested make this bra fit less like a plunge bra (which means I lose some cleavage).

I was nervous about the band of this bra fitting since I had had it made into a longline. My ribcage is flared at the bottom, which I didn't consider until well after I had ordered the bra. I was nervous about it being too tight at the bottom, but it actually fits me really well. I almost wish though that it was a bit tighter at the top. It's not loose enough that I want to wear it on the second set of hooks just yet, but I think I will have to move there sooner than I'd like. The band measures at 32.5 stretched, which is a full inch larger than my comfortable rib cage measurement.

I guess its a good thing that I ordered an extra column of hooks! This bra has 3 columns of hooks with 5 hooks per column. Hopefully the third column of hooks will give me a little more wear out of the band.

Now for a few more technical notes that aren't related to the alterations I requested. This bra seems to be narrower and deeper than the Sonia plunge bra. The depth could be due to the fact that this is one size larger (and that likely is why), but the narrower wires aren't what I expected. I tend to do better with narrower, more projected bras though so its perfect for me! The ribbon on the top of this bra also makes it more closed on top that the Sonia, so if you're fuller on top or have taller roots, this might be something to take into account. I love this bra though!

    Also another little side note, I did order the bottoms as well. I would probably have done better going up a size, but hopefully the material will be a bit less firm once I wear/wash them a couple times.

    So beautiful!!

  • Looks great! Did you order from Comexim directly?

    BumbleBean Yep! This set went on sale after Valentines Day so I decided to get it lol

    Awesome! I haven't ordered directly from them in so long, so can I ask a few questions? :)

    (1) Did you place an order on the website and write notes, or did you email your order?

    (2) If using the website order, did they send you an invoice for any additional charges (like for the longline)?

    (3) Did you communicate in Polish or English?

    Thanks again for your great review and pics! We are nearly boob twins, so your thoughts are very helpful. :)

  • Love the longline look so much lately. What a wonderful detailed review .

    BumbleBean I've now done a couple different orders (I actually ordered this set and the Charme set separately about a week apart) and then I also have a bra order and then another order with a bathing suit in progress. What I did for orders was I emailed them each time I wanted to request something different, just to make sure that it was something that they could do. They usually respond pretty quickly, within a day or two during the week. Then once I got confirmation that it was something that they could do, I ordered on their website and put the alterations in the comments. For the longline, after I paid I just sent the extra 20pln in a separate Paypal transaction after. The first time that I emailed to ask them about some alterations, they told me to place the order through their site and put the alterations/size in the comments, and gave me the email to send money to (I think it is just sklep@comexim.pl).
    I have always emailed in English and just kept it short and to the point (Hi, would you be able to make *insert bra here* in a size *insert size* with the following alterations: *insert alterations*). They've never seemed to have an issue with my emails.

    Thanks for all of the info. Back when I ordered a lot, you HAD to write in Polish, but I've heard rumors that writing in simple English is okay now. Glad to hear it's true!

  • kermitdafrog21 it seems as though your 70N long line is close to my plunge, but I had a reduced gore and cups, so I'm not sure if I can really say that a long line plunge is shallower than a regular plunge. We'll see as I have placed my order for a Gina and Audrey set in 70N last week I will keep you all up to date.

    MissAponii Yeah I don't have an unaltered Rita to compare the two. But relative to my unaltered Sonia plunge (which I have heard runs a bit shallower and wider than some of the other plunges), I observed the following differences:

    The cup height in the middle was much higher due to the raised gore.

    The cup height by the strap was a little shorter, though actually not as much of a difference as I had expected. I guess its probably hard to reduce it too much given the extra gore height.

    The straps are also noticeably wider set than my Sonia, despite requesting to have them moved in. It felt this way when I tried it on, but I just held the two on top of eachother to compare and the straps were basically entirely outside of the straps on the Sonia.

    The wires were narrower, which was not what I expected given that the Sonia was a 70M and the Rita is an altered 70N but its a plus for me.

    The cup was more projected (despite the narrower wires, there was about 1.5cm more of depth).

  • Oh my God, I wish I have this one ! But I have a question,did the longline style was an alteration you asked for ? Because on the website, the rita (and other bras) are not proposed in longline style.

  • Yes the longline is an alteration I requested. Long lines are the only alteration they charge for, it costs an extra 20 zloty

  • Comexim doesn t stop to surprise me ! Do you know if there is à limiter to how many altérations they can do on a bra ?

  • * a limit

  • Pinklady There's no limit to my knowledge! This bra had 6 alterations and they did them all lol

  • Amazing ! And how dis you know you would need reduced cup and straps movec in ?

  • I ordered on unaltered one prior to ordering alterations. But I have pretty narrow shoulders and very short roots, plus most people in my size range order a reduced cup height because I think Comexim scales the cups kind of strangely.
