Fits

I got this one to use as an everyday, practical, workhorse bra. I hoped the modifications would make it perfect, and the fit is pretty good, but not perfect. Cups are still wider than I need and the straps are still widely placed and in my armpits a little. The overall cup size is good but there still isn't quite enough projection above the wire so the wires sit about 3/4 inch below my IMF. Compared to my Yellow Bird which I ordered in the same size with the same modifications, it fits similarly but the cups seem a smidge shorter (which is a good thing) and the band is tighter. I can barely get it to stretch to 25". The overall comfort is pretty good except for it eating my armpits and pushing into my ribs as it rides down. Overall, this bra looks good and gives me that 'locked and loaded' feeling that I like.

  • It still looks pretty good though. Maybe a different set of alterations to include more depth at the bottom would fit better.

  • Thanks! I might try asking for more depth at the wire next time. I wonder if I'd still have to size up with that or if I could get away with a K??

  • The cup height looks good on this one. Did you ask for the straps to be moved in? Looks good on you. Can't believe the band only stretches to 25" though...that's not even a 55 band! I just ordered another 60J 3HC from Comexim... the band better stretch to at least 27" otherwise I'll have to start ordering 65" bands again.

  • Yes, I asked the straps to be moved in for all 3 of them. I'm not sure any of them were, though. They are all in my arm pits. I also don't think cup height was reduced on the Yellow Bird, but I think it was on this one. Most of the new 60 bands I get from Comexim seem to average about 26". I have had one or two that were 28" and a couple of 25". Which new 3HC did you order?

  • I ordered an older one that I've always had my eye on. I got the Diane in a 3HC (not a longline) and matching thongs in medium. I hope I like it in person (sometimes pictures can be deceptive). I didn't want the straps on the Aida, and I wanted another padded half cup. I almost ordered the matthiola instead, but changed my mind at the very last minute. I hope the band stretches enough...

    Diane is lovely. You will have so many gorgeous prints! I do love a beautiful bra. :)

  • I keep looking at Matthiola. There’s so many great prints.

  • Yeah I've almost ordered it twice now... don't know why I keep on hesitating!

    I know why I have. It looks a lot like the Belen with the piping on top and I’m not sure about that part of the fit. I’m worried about it showing through. Maybe if it’s got the same mauve lace my Triss has. Or maybe I just need the right size and alterations. The other issue is that I simply don’t wear a lot of light colours. But it’s a stupid reason. I do sometimes get worried about a darker colour rubbing off or bleeding onto the light colour. Again, kinda paranoid and not the best reason. The last reason is that I like other ones better. But it doesn’t mean that I dislike it. I still do, but I have to prioritize all my likes. You know?
