Fits

This is one of the two bras ordered around Black Friday. After the 65J - Comexim » Belen Half Cup was a little too tall and tight, I messaged Anna at Comexim to help me figure out what size I should try next for a better fit. We ended up working on both 3HC fit and plunge fit because I like both styles. Guys, it was really fricking hard to decide what style to try, but she suggested Triss, and it was on my short list, so I went with it. I seriously had a half dozen or more short listed styles to try the alterations with. I’m glad she picked it from my list as the black is good for my work uniform (also black).

This bra is a padded 3 part half cup with 2 vertical seams, and lace covering the cup edge. The material of the cups is quite soft and smooth, a bit silky, and the foam cups are lightweight. It’s black with what appears to be white or ivory dots in a sort of pearl necklace design, though in some lighting, look a little pale pink tinged. The lace is a lovely shade of mauve. The bow, straps, and trim are a similar mauve shade. The band has 3x3 hooks and the straps are fairly thick.

After sending pictures and videos to Anna of all the Comexims I’ve tried, and the various sizes and alterations combinations, she chose to make a 70H with the straps moved in 2cm and the gore reduced by 1cm. The plunge was the same, but added 2cm of depth at the wire. To be honest, I was a little bit curious that both bras were the same size, and that the plunge had the added depth when it is considered to fit larger than the half cup. I usually hear people size up in the half cups/down in the plunge. I was not so concerned with the cups not being reduced on this one because it’s a cup size smaller than the Belen was and I thought maybe I do need a cup size down.

The band is quite firm with limited stretch, and I’m glad that I got a 70 for this one. That said, I might have been able to do a 65 band if it had an extra column of hooks, though might be a bit snug at first still. The wires seem to be narrow enough, though I could possibly go a bit narrower. The cup height also seems to be ok, and the lace over the edge hides any minor fit issues. I’m unsure if the reduced gore is a benefit to me, and I don’t know if it’s a factor in the overall cup volume. This bra is a little but too small, and it’s most noticeable on my big side. It’s a little compressing, but is typical for this style and it’s not a huge issue for me. Sometimes I prefer this fit over the more projected and slightly pointier plunge.

I got the matching bottoms, however, by default, they’re a boy short which generally isn’t a good style for me (though I did stick with the shorty with the other bra). Since the Triss is similarly styled like the Scarlet, I asked for her to make the bottoms like the Scarlet for me...and I am glad I did. I ordered the medium and they fit. They’re a little snug, and I probably could have done a large, but they might ease in a bit more with wear. I would have gotten a bit more rear coverage, but I think the medium is still good. It’s a better fit than the other ones in my order. For reference, I take a medium size with aerie and La Senza unless it’s a particularly stretchy material.

All in all, the set fits decently, but not perfect. I think my next 3HC will be a cup size larger with reduced cups. Straps moved in are a consistent alteration. I don’t know if I can do 1cm as well, or if I really need the 2cm for my petite frame. And as said, I don’t know about the gore. I’m hoping to get some feedback from Anna on the fit of the two bras and I will update or edit this as that happens.

    That is gorgeous on you! Sorry it's a little small.

    Awh, this fit looks pretty close, just a tiny bit snug in the cup. Looking at the fit pics reminds me that the 3HC has kind of a high cup towards the strap. I have 2 on the way and didn't ask for reduced cups. Did you find that the plunge fit smaller than the HC? I agree that it's not typical.

  • Thanks Sonya. It’s still pretty workable. And if I lose a little weight, it might fit better.

    letstalkaboutbras no my plunge is fitting bigger, especially with the added depth. The matching bottoms for the plunge do fit smaller though. What did you order?

  • I got AIDA as a 3HC and Matthiola. I asked for high-waisted bottoms for the AIDA set. I'm nervous about both. I got the same size for each, but didn't reduce the cups which I feel like may have been dumb. I take a 60HH in the plunges with reduced cups and got 60HH in the 3HCs but requested added depth at the wire (first time with that alteration) and the usual 2cm straps inward and overlapping gore. At the last minute I talked myself out of one of the unlined styles. Maybe after I gauge the fit on these.

  • Yeah, I’m really interested in an unlined style, but really kinda want to nail down the lined stuff first.

  • Calluna Did you see Comexim's FB post from the other day regarding Joanna being the new owner as of 01/01/20?

    No but I heard about it from someone. I will have a look for the post. My time on Facebook has been minimal recently. Mostly to manage my groups.

  • So I wore this yesterday and I think it’s feeling a little but tight because it’s a little bit too small. It’s also a tad shallow. So I think that going up in the cup but with reduced cups will be fine. I also don’t think I need reduced gore. Overlapping or narrowed, quite possibly though. So either 65J or 70HH (depending on the band stretchiness) with the straps moved in and the cups lowered will do the trick. I’m not sure if I need 1 or 2 cm, but I think I will try a 1:1 first.

  • Calluna Are you thinking of doing these alterations in a plunge or a half cup? If it's a half cup, you may just want to email them first to make sure they'll do it... no one is ever sure if they've actually lowered the cups in half cups or not.

  • I was thinking about them for a half cup (maybe plunge in 65HH/70H). I think my only other alternative would be to get the 70H with full gore height and maybe more depth at the wire. Your 65J Honey Cookie was definitely lower than the Belen of the same size. Not a lot, but enough to make a difference. I still have to put the review for my Hot Chocolate up...hopefully soon. With that one I have less of an idea of what size and alterations I would need to improve the fit. I have a lot of options when I take into consideration the bras and sizes and alterations and fits I’ve had so far. Like this one, it’s very close, but I don’t know what I need.

  • That bra is so much prettier in person! It seems like it’s always like that for Comexim.

    Oh thanks cupandahalf !! I really love the mauve shimmer straps against my skin tone. I’m trying to figure out how I can get a whole bra this shade or close to it.

    Well they're having a 20% off sale this week, so now is the time to order!

  • Good to know!
