Oh man, I apologize for taking so long to start these reviews! I'm moving at the end of the month, so things are a little hectic right now. Anyways, I've had the opportunity to wear this bra a couple times now, so let's get into it. Luckily, it's the standard cut, so there's not a whole lot of weirdness going on (we'll save that for my new Basic lol)
About me: 26FF ish, dense tissue, narrow and tall roots, evenly full/functionally FOT.

I believe this is the standard cut of Scottie in 55J. Four rows of hooks which is nice. It's a tad snug, as you can see by the measurements, but is relatively comfortable after a couple hours' wear. The band is at risk of becoming too tight after several hours, depending on my activity level. If I'm sitting on the couch all day, it's uncomfortable, but if I'm up and moving around, it's fine. The wires are a great width and the gore is a good width and height for me. The cups are a perfect volume, although the padding/fabric is a little thicker and stiffer than my other Comexims, so it gives a slightly more peaked appearance than my others (excluding my new Basic lol). I'm almost positive the shape will soften up over time. I mentioned this to marilynne today, but we have a hunch that the newer Comexim styles are cut slightly different than the old-school styles. I definitely feel like my Scottie is more balconette-style than true plunge style like my old Basic. The newer ones seem to have a slightly higher gore and a straighter neckline than my old Basic.
The briefs: Size Small. I suppose they're similar to like a boyshort cut, but a bit less coverage. My butt is definitely bottom-heavy, and the elastic cuts right through the middle of my cheeks, horizontally. It's an awful look lmao. The size is right, but not the shape. I'm keeping them because I aspire to someday make them into a thong style, which I've never done before, but even if I mess them up it's no worse than the state they're in right now. So yeah!
TL;DR: Band is a little snug, cups fit well, a tad pointy, feels more like a balconette than a true plunge. The briefs are cut like boyshorts, which doesn't work for me.
