- This bra's measurements have been altered
- Altered straps, Lowered gore by 1 – 1.5 cm, Overlapping gore, Straps moved in 1 cm, Made as a 3HC not a longline
My shape is low set, soft, slightly pendulous, narrow and short rooted.
This bra is a very pretty mauve colour with lace detailing in the cups and along the band (all the way around to the back of the bra). The straps measure wide (width wise) for this bra, which I didn't realize before I saw it in person. The straps and little classy bow on the gore are both black. I think darker mauve straps may have worked better with the aesthetics of the bra, but it's still pretty with the black straps. They're just not as delicate looking as the rest of the bra, that's all. (Edited to add: I see a picture of a 70F with mauve straps and it looks very pretty...not sure if that was a special request, but I wish this one had those straps instead of the black ones it came with).
This is a three-part half cup with fairly tall cups... in this size anyways. I measured them at about 6.3" tall. That is slightly taller than what my short roots prefer, but it still fits me nicely. I did request a reduced gore, overlapping gore, straps moved in, and for this to be made as a 3HC wth no longline material. I have no way of verifying that any of those alterations were done, but I believe they were. For example, the other Bridget in 65HH says that the gore height is 3.5", mine is 2.6".
The band fits what I consider to be fairly true to size. It stretched to about 29" before the wires just started to distort, but it could have stretched further. It has 3 clasps with 4 sets of hooks, which is awesome. I think because it was a longline, it has taller wings and better band support than it would have otherwise. I love the tall wings and 3 sets of hooks.
The shape it gives is rounded but slightly minimized (I think) due to wider cups. I feel like the wires still follow my IMF pretty well, but I could go with narrower wires, and then I'd probably get a more projected, rounded and up-front shape. That could also be because the cups are slightly too large for me at this time of the month. I feel enclosed but not as supported as I could feel. A 65HH would probably have worked out for me, but I chose the 65J because my 65HH Comexim Coco (381) feels like it's squishing me a little.
Comfort is amazing in this bra, as with all my Comexims that I've tried. Right from the moment I put it on, there is no chaffing, rubbing, poking, or stabbing. I wore it yesterday and I didn't even know it was there.
All in all this is a beautiful delicate looking bra with great comfort and quality.
