Ok, so I keep putting off reviewing this bra. I had hoped to get feedback from Anna on this and the 70H - Comexim » Triss 3hc but it hasn’t happened because of the changes last month. Nevertheless, should I get the feedback, I’ll update this post.

Now about the bra....

I have wanted this bra for so so so long. I love the brown base and salmony coral lace overlay. I love that it had texture yet still relatively flat. The matching shorts are cute, and while I’m not really a fan of the boy short style as they do not generally flatter my figure, I still wanted them. I did consider asking if they could be made in a different style but decided to stick with the szorty.

I was finally in a position to get it at long last, and I had multiple email conversations with Anna about what size to try based on the fit of the 65HH - Comexim » Jade Plunge , 65J - Comexim » Ingrid Plunge Bra (289) , and 32FF - Anna Pardal For Comexim » Lady Grey Sophisticated Balcon

The volume of the Jade is/was fine, but the cups were too tall and the straps were too widely spaced. The Ingrid is pretty good, but it’s slightly too large, however the way it closes on top helps hide that, and it’s a little more coverage than I expect from a plunge as a result. I wanted to try it because of the alterations (straps moved in 2cm, 2cm depth at wire, reduced cups though it was questionable if that was really fine) as the Jade was unaltered. Nevertheless, it is still a fave. The Lady Grey is is also altered (equivalent to the Jade with 2cm straps moved in, 2cm lowered gored, and 2cm reduced cups) and a little bit small on my big boob. This one is also a fave. So with this in mind, including pictures and videos, Anna opted to make this as a 70H with straps moved in 2cm, gore reduced by 1cm, and 2cm more depth at the wire. I admit that I was a bit surprised at the combination, especially with the cups not reduced, but I figured I would try it and see.

With all this in mind, the fit is pretty good. It’s not 100% perfect, so it’s not my perfect size and alterations. It’s not going to stop me from wearing it though, and if I figure out what is my best size and alterations are, I might try to reorder it again. The band is pretty tight, so I definitely couldn’t have done a 65 in this one. The 70 is snug and fits well on my 28.5” but somewhat sensitive ribcage. The band is covered with the lace that covers the cups, so I am not surprised by a snug band. The straps feel like they’re a little bit wide, making me question the alteration, but I have compared with the straps on my Ingrid and they overlap exactly the same, so...? The cups seem like they are a little bit full coverage, like the Ingrid, which is not inherently a bad thing, just an observation, and the cup volume is maybe a bit more than I need, by like maybe a quarter of an inch. I’m still waiting to ovulate, but it might be better for high tide boobs, if I ever get there. I’m not sure if I need the added depth or not. Maybe I need 1cm? Maybe none? I’m not sure if reduced cups on added depth really leads to a shorter cup. I feel like they negate each other as more depth means my breasts settle in lower and even removing depth makes them still tall. I’m not sure if it’s a solid theory. Tightened the straps a little bit more and the gapping is not as bad. I’m not sure if I need a reduced gore. I don’t think it hurts, but I’m not sure if it’s a benefit to me. The cup width of this bra is fine. The wings seem a little bit tall, especially with the smaller 2x3 hook tape, but it’s not a problem, just a visual aesthetic.

I ordered a Queen of Hearts with the Valentine’s Day sale in a 65HH (because it shows band is stretchy in the measurements here) with straps moved in, overlapping gore and 2x4 hooks. So we’ll see what the fit is like in the cups with minimal alteration. I’m hoping that I can get away with only straps moved in as the fewer alterations, the better.

The szorty was really tight. You can see the difference in the width at the hips in my pictures. I did break the seams at the hip area on top and, combined with washing them, it fits better. The lace is still a bit rigid but it’s more wearable, especially with the leg hole moved to my crease to fit more like a hipster or cheeky, as the back side is not total coverage.

I do really love this set. It’s not a perfect set, but it’s comfortable and I wear it as much as I can.

  • It looks gorgeous on you! The fit looks really good.

  • Thanks, Sonya. You think the fit is ok?

  • The fit looks great in the pics.

  • Do you feel like you're getting support in the cups Calluna or is it too deep? Is your centre tissue contained? ( It looks like it is in the picture, but it's always hard to tell in pictures). I wonder if you could do with just a shorter cup of 2 cm and no added depth? I'm interested to see what the queen of hearts will look like on you with fewer alterations. Has it shipped yet? In my experience, I can do fewer alterations in the right size, so hopefully you have that same experience too. All I do now is straps moved in 1 cm and overlapping gore.

  • I feel like this one is a smidge too deep/tall/big. Not by a lot, though. Maybe a 1/4” or less. I’m not sure if keeping the depth and reducing the height is the best option which is why I ordered the Queen of Hearts with no added depth or reduced height.

    The way I see it, I had a few options for the cups:

    -added depth and reduced cups
    -less added depth
    -no added depth
    -no added depth and reduced cups

    *unsure about the gore height

    With the first option, I could add 2cm, reduce 2cm, but I wonder if it’s redundant. I could try 2cm added but only 1cm reduced cups. I could also try added 1cm and reduced 1cm but again, redundant? Cups are scaled in 2cm increments, so I feel like this current fit is basically a 70HH without reduced cups (and straps moved in and reduced gore).

    With second option, I could try just adding 1cm of depth which might be the best of both worlds. Less depth might mean lower cups.

    If I reduced cups without added depth, I wouldn’t do 2cm, or it might be a little bit too small like Lady Grey.

    Given that I have a multitude of options, I opted to try the least alterations first.

    It has shipped, yes, but the tracking said final destination was USA. I spoke to Joanna and she’s not sure what happened and said that she would send me another one the next day. Which kinda makes me nervous that the alterations will not be done unless it was a priority remake. But I’m trying to be hopeful. I’m hoping to get it in the next week, as it will be a month from the day I ordered on the 16th.

  • Well it'll be really interesting to see how the queen of hearts turns out. Hopefully it fits as is! Glad you got another one shipped out to you so fast. I'm sure she just prioritzed sewing it for you.

    Thanks. I’m anxious to try it. I had to evaluate all of Comexim plunges I’ve had or tried and attempted to use the fit information of each to make an educated guess.

    I hope it was re-sewn for me custom and shipped out right away. I did never get her to confirm that she got my request for alterations but it is in the order messages and I did repeat it I’m my email with the mailing address. I hope it’s here soon.

  • My Queen of Hearts definitely has a larger/stretchier band than most of my other 60s. It's also super comfy and moulds to my body nicely. I hope you get a great fit!

  • Thanks Sonya . I used the measurements here for reference and matched with what I have already tried and felt like it would be ok in the 65 for this one.
