Used to fit

I decided to order this bra last month after the underwire popped out of my 36HH - Panache » Envy Balconnet Bra (7285) , since I needed a replacement but couldn't find any Envys under $60...and because I was curious about how unlined Comexims fit. I have a particular love of half cups, because they work so well with my shape (very short, projected, and full on bottom). Of course there's little info to go on; comparing the measurements of an 80M Coco with my 85K - Comexim » Sonia Half Cup (406) made me opt to size down a cup size, as it seemed the unlined one ran larger.

I ordered this on 6/20, it shipped last week, and it arrived today - so about a month from ordering to receiving. As far as alterations go, I asked for the straps to be moved in, as well as the gore narrowed. I'm assuming the straps were moved; the gore is definitely much narrower.

The fit on it is pretty great. The band is quite tight, so going with an 85 was actually the right choice this time - I measured it at about 36.5" stretched. The cups have a lot of immediate depth, which is something I need in a bra - the wires sit happily in my IMF and don't want to go anywhere. The wires are *very* narrow - at 6" they are the narrowest of any bra I own, and I think they are right at the limit of how narrow of a wire I can comfortably wear. The shape I get is not *quite* as uplifted as I get from my Sonia, but it's close - I'm actually surprised at how supportive the bra is, considering it's a single layer of mesh lace. Of course, I also haven't played around with adjusting the straps much yet, so I'm sure that I can get a bit more lift if I adjust those.

Going down a cup in size was the right choice, as it does indeed run larger in the cup than Sonia does, however it's not quite a full cup size larger; I get just the teensiest bit of almost-quad on my larger side. Still, not enough to really effect the fit or be noticeable, and definitely not enough to size up. Getting the gore narrowed was definitely the right choice as well - it tacks perfectly this time. The wings measure as being tall, but as was the case with Sonia, they're actually quite low under the sides - I think the fact that the wires are so narrow makes wing measurements kind of inaccurate since it's meant to be where the side meets the cup.

The bra itself is beautiful. It's this really pretty sheer lace mesh, with hot pink bows on the gore. Black and hot pink is one of my favorite color combinations, so I'm very pleased with how it looks. The lace itself has a really interesting design on it - it isn't floral like most laces are, but instead this abstract squiggle design. It's neat, but I think I would have preferred a more typical floral lace. The sides of the bra are just plain black - I kind of wish the lace had been overlaid onto the wings and band. The tops of the cups are also edged with a pretty trim that I like.

Overall, this bra was a great experiment, and will be a good replacement for my Envy, at half the cost. I'm really happy with the appearance and fit, and I'll definitely be getting more unlined 3HCs.

    It does look like a good fit. I have this bra, but on me the cups are way too tall - which makes me wonder if it would have fit me better a cup size down? I dont have particularly short roots.

  • Thank you! This looks beautiful and an unlined I'll add to my "want" list.

    It's so encouraging to see someone get such a good fit when you can't try it on first. Enjoy your new bra - it looks great on you!

  • Never too many lacy bras!

    I generally do a ton of research before buying a bra - which is difficult because there's so little info in my size range. But it means I'm generally able to get a pretty good fit out of it!

  • Ohhh, this just looks gorgeous on you! It makes me nervous to custom order a bra I can't return and then to wait a month for it, but I'm glad this worked out so well for you! I'm sure it isn't totally perfect, but it sure looks like it in photos!

    Honestly I have to say this is probably the absolute best fit I've gotten in a bra - it's better than my Etta, better than my Envy, better than my Sonia, and better than my CHP Lawenda. I wore it all day yesterday and it was just so comfortable, and it stayed in place all day, which is really impressive - I need so much immediate depth that usually even my bras that seem really deep at the wire start sliding around. But it did not budget at all.

  • Bette than your CKs? Oh dear. Want!!
