This bra has customizations: reduced gore, reduced cups, and three row of eyes.

Also, it looks different than all the others because I took a seam ripper to it. The lace trim along the top of the cups and the gore bow was really awful. It didn't look that nice on the bra and in my opinion cheapened the whole look. In Comexim's images of this bra, the trim is a little more solid and ribbony. They should have stuck with that.
Anyway, I rid this bra of it and replaced it with red bows at the gore and where the straps join the cup. A bigger one I had removed from an Ewa Michalak bra a few months ago and smaller ones at the straps that I had in my sewing kit. I think it's nicer now.

So, I was curious to try a Comexim with reduced cups. Sometimes I bubble over my 65G/60H but not enough to go up to a 65H. I figured a 65H with reduced cups may be workable though. Something like a 65G.5 instead of a full cup up.
Aside from that, the bra also has my name. Spelling is different, but it's close enough. So, I kind of needed it.

Anyway, the band is really soft and really comfortable. It has a nice gentle stretch to it and I feel secure and well supported on the loosest hook. I could go to the middle, but the end is fine so there I'll stay. I think I like the thicker band and the addition of the extra row. I may order that for myself in the future.
The gore tacks and the wires are comfortable. Right around 5", give or take a cm, and that's where I like them. They come up a bit high under the arm. I don't experience any chafing, but I feel it and wish they were lower.
The straps are soft and smooth. The adjusters stay in place well. They're not super stretchy, but they are long. I have the adjusters sitting on my traps now and I'll have to shorten the straps at some point. They are not too wide set for me. This is where my broad shoulders are a bonus for me. The high sides would be unbearable if the straps were also too wide, but that's not the case thankfully.
The cups fit pretty well. I fill most of it up nicely, but there is some empty space at the top where the strap joins the cup. This is also the case with my 65G - Comexim » Irish Coffee Biustonosz (335). The bra fits well everywhere else and the empty space isn't very evident, with or without a top.

Overall, Jacqueline is a comfortable and appealing bra. I'm happy that I got to try a customized Comexim and got to experiment with a cup up. In the future, I think I prefer the slight smallness of my unaltered 65G/60Hs but I may go for that third row of eyes.

    Oh it looks so much better now! I love your alterations!

  • Oh it looks so much better now! I love your alterations!

  • hi. im currently trying to find my comexim size. just to compare, what is your underbust measurement? and your overbust standing with bra? overbust leaning without bra?

  • Hey, my five measurements per ABTF are

    Tight UB: 26.5
    Snug UB: 28.5
    Standing: 33.5
    Leaning: 37
    Lying: 35

    The calculator gives me a UK size of 28E/F and I wear a 65G or 60H in Comexim, 65F in soft Ewa Michalak, 65E in padded Ewa Michalak. Standing overbust with a bra on isn't a great measurement, but mine is generally around 35, give or take, depending on the bra.

    Thanks, PetiteCollegiate I have no idea why they went that way they did with the trim, but I like my version more.

  • newhere Those Comexim sizes are for the plunges. I haven't tried any of their half cups because they'd be too wide for me.
    Also, don't use their calculator. It gave me some ridiculous size like 75B or something when I tried it.

  • what do you mean by "too wide"? because i was thinking of getting a half cup.

  • The wire width. From tip to tip would be around 5.5" in my size. I need a width of about 5". Otherwise the wires sit on my ribs, do not properly encase my breast tissue, and cause pain.

  • i just measured my bra. it is about 5.5 -6.25 wire width. and this cup is too small for me. so you'd say i need a bra with a bigger wire width right?

  • Possibly.
    It could also be too wide making the cup feel smaller than what it is. A shape incompatibility.

    If I were you, I would do a fit check. Do a couple in some different bras. Post your measurements, the bras measurements, and some photos.
    There are some people here that are really really good at helping with finding your shape and guiding next steps.

    This bra looks much better with your alterations! Glad it worked out well enough to keep.

  • learningaboutbras thanks! It's a little different. Not so round and globe like like my other Comexims. But the shape is still lifted and I actually like that I get the forwardness and the lift without so much cleavage. It'll be a good bra for v-necks in more modest company I think.
