What a beaut this baby is! Pictures truly do not do it justice; the intricacy of the lace is seen much better in person. I was a bit nervous with size, as I've only tried the Emeline from AP, but I'd say it fits the same as my 36GG - Anna Pardal For Comexim » Emeline , more or less. The band hasn't started out as firm, but a size down would definitely be too small. The cups are a bit roomier in this model, but I think it's more a matter of how the cups are constructed versus than sizing inconsistency. All-in-all, I'd say 36GG is my right size for this bra. For reference, I typically wear a UK 32H/34GG, and my Comexim size is 75J. Other notable differences between this and Emeline is that the gore is a touch higher (still not at all painful), the cups cover my squidgy sides a bit more, and the straps feel closer together. The straps weren't an issue for me, per se, but something I noticed in the Emeline -- esp, in comparison to my Comexim plunges.

The only disappointment with this bra is that it doesn't feel as well made and refined as Emeline, which is something I wouldn't expect with the hefty price tag ($62). It's still better made than my Comexim padded plunges, which retail for about $40, but I don't know that this particular model warrants the heavier charge. With Emeline, however, you can FEEL the difference in materials with its sturdy construction and tight stitching. I'll still continue to purchase as much as I can with a Comexim name tag.

  • I LOVE the look of this bra! So gorgeous! :D Bummer to hear about the quality though. AP should be amazing for the price!

  • Is there like a ribbon floating above the cup on your chest like there's the edge trim on the bra then space then a thin ribbon? Or is it just an illusion

  • Not an illusion! I tried to show it in pics, but it doesn't show up easily. The ribbon is held up by teeny tiny little strings. I think you can see it best in image 3.

  • I'm bummed that the hibiscus doesn't feel as sturdy to you. I just received my first AP, a lady grey, and I'm already so in love w/ fit that I'm contemplating others! I will of course give it a couple weeks to see how it holds up before ordering it a sibling. One of the things I love most is how quality it feels to wear - the tight stitching, like you are saying. It's firm and supportive, still reasonably flexible, and there's no feeling like I'm wearing helmets. It's that happy land of firm end of flexible. The stretch satin and the firm ribbon along the cup edge in this design help the structure for me. I'm surprised the Emeline won out for you because in pics Emeline looks like a Comexim basic with fancy lace on top. My Basic gets the job done, but the cups are a little too stretchy/loosely stitched to support me right. Any insights on these vs. the Basic?
