Used to fit

My shape is lower set, slightly pendulous, soft, narrow and short rooted.

This is my third, yes third, Comexim Gemma. The first one I ordered was also a 65HH, but it had a few more alterations, and it came out a bit too small because of the alterations. In that one, my boobs lifted the gore and smushed together under it, and my larger side had some bubbling up over the cup. I sold my first and ordered a second, larger cup. I accidently forgot to order the second one as a half cup though, so I sold that one too. Now onto this one...

I ordered this with alterations:
- Overlapping gore
- Straps moved in 1 cm
- Made as a 3HC

As far as I can tell, all alterations were completed on this bra, and it fits amazingly! This bra, as well as my 65J - Comexim » Natalie Half Cup (491) both fit almost perfectly on me (with a few minor imperfections that don't really affect fit). It has just enough depth at the wire but not too much apex depth for me, and it has a nice strip along the upper cup edge, which closes it off just enough for my short roots. I have to scoop and swoop plus reverse scoop and swoop because the wires are so soft that my soft tissue gets trapped under the gore if I don't, but once I've adjusted everything in place it mostly stays in place for the day. The shape is nice and rounded, as with all 3HCs, and I don't find it minimizing all all. Not as "out there" as EMs Chps, but still gives a nice profile.

I particularly like that they did this bra with straps that are a tad bit wider than standard straps, as they give good support. They adjust long enough for my tall frame. I also appreciate that they did the band with 3 x 4 sets of hooks! The band feels more supportive with the 3 x4 set compared to 2 x 4 set. The band is a little stretchy, but probably fits how a 30" band should fit. I prefer 30" bands that fit more like 28" bands just because my tight underbust is closer to 28". It's still very comfortable and supportive, and with so many hooks to adjust to, it's not a problem. And for anyone who has tried Comexim bras, you know just how comfortable they are!... Great for all day wear.

The look of this bra is very pretty in person, and I actually find that pictures don't quite do it justice. It's a classic black bra with something extra. I'm not sure why I've been drawn to it actually, but now I finally have one that fits I can start obsessing over different ones! I do actually wish that I'd tried the "Belle do Nuit" instead, but it wasn't released yet when I ordered this bra.

Overall excellent quality, exceptional comfort, and classically beautiful bra.

    If it makes you feel any better, I ordered Graffiti , Chevron and Patricia three times, so you are not alone in your quest for perfection!

    It's a gorgeous bra for sure.

    MamaPagan glad I'm not alone in my neuroticism!
