This is my second round of customizations with Comexim. My main concerns have been around lowering the cup height and cutting the outer cup at a steeper angle so that the straps can be moved in. I emailed Joanna several times to discuss how to do this and showed her pictures of what I wanted, and she told me to request the below customizations:

Pearl Flower Mint 60H: Please keep as Plunge
- Wire size: normal for 60H, 21.5-22 cm before gore height reduction
- Cup depth: normal for 60H, total 20 cm
- Cup height: Reduce 1 cm, total height 14 cm
- Gore: Reduce 1 cm to keep original cup shape
- Outer cup length/strap attachment area: total length 6 cm, same as 60G
** Final bra should be the same wires and cup depth as normal 60H, same cup height and strap placement as 60G

However, while the cup shape and height are now perfect (note: if you want to maintain the same shape, make sure to lower the gore the same amount as you lower the cup height, otherwise your bra will end up kind of straight across), the issue of the outer cup length and strap attachment still hasn't been addressed. The strap placement is identical to my unaltered 60H Ingrid Plunge. Therefore, it's still sitting a little too far apart with the sides of the cups chafing a bit under the arms. I am asking Joanna once again the best way to request this change as last time I simply asked to "move straps in 1 cm" but the angle of the outer cup edge didn't change.

This comfort issue aside, the rest of the bra is awesome. The band is TTS and fits perfectly. Like Ingrid, Pearl Flower Mint has a printed mesh outer layer and a stretch tricot inner layer for the wings. The cups are much better for my proportions with the slightly reduced height--it's amazing how much difference 1 cm can make. The volume and shape of the standard 60H Plunge always worked for me, so the cups fit me as expected. They are made from soft green mesh printed with a white vine and soft floral pattern, which is just lovely. The upper cup is trimmed with simple mint green lace, and are lined with white cotton. The straps are seafoam with an interesting shiny texture, and there are satin ribbons at the strap attachments and center gore, as well as a silver C charm.

Pearl Flower Mint is a sweet and lovely summer bra with a slightly unusual color combination, and I am very pleased to finally add it to my collection! If only we could figure out the cut of the outer cup and strap placement, I would be happy wearing nothing but Comexim altered Plunges. While I also ordered a custom 3HC that worked out pretty well, I think that the Plunge is the better fit for me as it gives a more rounded and lifted shape.
