My shape: low set, even to full on bottom, soft, and narrow short rooted. I usually wear deep 30Fs in unlined bras and 30FF in padded bras.

I did get alterations (straps moved in, overlapping gore, cookie pockets, and reduced gore height). The alterations worked wonderfully for me in this size. I feel no compression in this bra compared to the 65HH - Comexim » Gemma Half Cup that I ordered last time. I definitely needed the size up.

The looks: I originally thought this bra was off-white to pale mauve, but it's actually closer to a very pale pink, with darker pinky-mauve straps and an adorable little pinky-mauve rose in the center on the gore. All the colours blend well together, and the rose is very appropriate considering the light pink colour of the cups. This is a 3 part half cup with lace covering the entire bra all the way aroud the back to the clasps. I usually don't wear a lot of pink, but this bra is very feminine and I find myself reaching for it.

The band was originally on the snug side, and although it did fit me, I wear it with an extender on the first set of hooks to take some of the tension off of the clasps. See the detailed measurements - band is measured from clasp on one side to last set of hooks on other side. I pulled the band only until cups were starting to distort.

The shape it gives: Round. Not projected out in the same way that Ewa Michalak half cup bras are, but just nice and rounded. In the right size, this bra is holding things close to my body but not compressed.

Comfort: Another reason I reach for this bra is because it's SO comfortable! From day one it's been lovely to wear. I forget it's on, and I can wear it for the entire day without any discomfort. The combination of a firm band with the width of the straps is also very nice because I can adjust them looser and still have all the support I need. That means they are not cutting into my shoulders at all

Love it all around.

Edited to add: please look at the individual measurement for this bra, as BTB has the averages up, which don't reflect the measurements I got for this bra in particular (with alterations).

Light pink colorway

    Thanks martka00 lcl0706 and Love4Pollinators ! I can't get over how comfortable it is, and because the accents and cups are all different shades I feel like they match quite a range of different coloured bottoms (I unfortunately didn't order a matching set, which I regret now!).

  • Are the cookie pockets synthetic? I loved the cotton.....

  • Love4Pollinators I think so, which is too bad because cotton is so soft. But I do have to say I don't find them irritating. I should add a picture (when I take it off again, lol!)

    This looks amazing. I have so many pale pink Comexim's already though.

    Love4Pollinators I added pictures of the cookie pockets if you wanted to see them.

  • Thank you, Wilderness1 :-) Joanna at Comexim said the cotton cookie pockets are still available, too. We just have to mention them in the comments section.

    Love4Pollinators oh, that's good to know! Cotton is nice and cozy...

    Warm in the winter and absorbent in summer ;-)

    Wow this is so pretty! I love the soft colour of the cups with the darker accent of the straps and center flower detail. The rose print is pretty but as I'm somewhat allergic to rose (scent gives me migraines), I'm naturally conflicted with this even though I know that it's only a print and not the real thing.

  • Calluna that's funny. I can't handle the smell of roses either (for the same reason).This is one of my best fitting bras. I think that the alterations make it fit properly on me.
