Didn't fit

This is a very pretty bra and my first custom bra ordered from Comexim. I ordered it with 2 cm increase depth at the bottom for more immediate projection and reduced cup height. It initially looked like a good fit for my FOB, centre full breasts. I didn’t see any obvious fit issues when I first tried it on.

However, although initially comfortable as the day went on I found that the bra felt tight and my breasts felt squeezed even though I initially didn’t see any fit issues. The centre gore gets pushed slightly off centre and tends to lie slightly on my larger breast. As well, I noticed when I removed the bra that the wire looked like it was resting on my breast on the outer edge and bottom. There is some collapsing at the bottom of the bra and creasing near the gore. It feels like my breasts are pushing the bra toward the gore and downwards. I find myself adjusting the fit several times through the day.

I want to like this bra more, but do not think I got the sizing right. In Comexim plunges I find the 80J is a better fit for me and am planning on ordering a 3HC bra in 80J with the same modifications to see if I get a better fit. I need more immediate projection than this bra seems to provide and am hoping the next size up will work.

    I know how you feel. With their padded bras, even with first try on feeling and looking great, by end of day, everything is so......different. Never an issue with their unpadded bras though. I have come to the conclusion I can't wear padded bras due to this. :-/

    Sorry your are experiencing issues with this one. :-( I hope your next attempt fares better.

    The 3HC don't have very much immediate projection as opposed to the plunge. I think it's more of a ) shape as opposed to a > shape. This might not hold true for your size range, but this is what I've experienced. I hope whatever you choose works out better for you.

    But she ordered deeper at the wire which should have corrected the shallow issue. :-/

    Thanks for your comments. The padded plunges work for me in 80J, but I need reduced cup height for the best fit. I have Eris and Ingrid with reduced cup height and modified and Elena with no modifications. The Eris has a very stretchy band and fits the loosest, Elena which fits well but I would order it with reduced cup height next time and Ingrid which fits on the small side but still comfortable. I find the band more comfortable in the bras in 80J.

    I was hoping asking for the 3HC deeper at the wire in 80HH would give the same immediate projection as the 80J plunge, but the wire isn’t big enough and there doesn’t seem to be enough projection. I am taking a risk and ordering 3HC in 80J with increased depth at the wire in the Basic, Mimi and Sonia in the hopes that I will have a better fit. I like the shape of the 3HC, so am hoping I can figure out what works best for me.
