Hasn't set fit

Such a lovely marble-space print! I really like Andromeda. It was my first (and up until now, only - trying to maintain some self-discipline (; ) BreakOutBras order, in April last year.

*Fit:
Apparently Andromeda's band is said to run tight, but I personally haven't noticed, maybe the 4x3 hooks help? My standard 70 Comexim band feels fine (for a ribcage measuring 74-78-85 cm.).
This 70K (sold by BoB as UK 32H - I'm just now thinking I may need to change how I entered this bra?) fits me well. Some minor cutting in / bulge on my larger breast - I suppose a 70L may have fit as well. For reference my breast perimeter is 30+-ish cm / 12 inches and because I don't mind some compression I tend to do well in bras with a depth around 28+cm./11 inch.

The wires are nice and narrow, the wings are low enough not to bother me, and even without alterations this bra works for me.

*Materials:
Deserve their own paragraph, as the materials on this are my absolute favorite that Comexim uses! Wish they would come out with more bras in this type fabric!
It's a smooth, sturdy, satiny overlay with a cotton lining throughout the cups.

>>Only downside of this fabric is that for the briefs, in summer this material can be kind of crotch-sweat inducing, if you know what I mean.

*Look:
Visually, this bra is stunning. The swirly marble-like veins in the fabric, the galaxy vibes without being in-your-face galaxy.. Beautiful.
Don't get me wrong I would also purchase a purple-blue-sparkle full-on galaxy bra in a heartbeat, but this is pretty functional and understated, while still being an original non-overly-girly design. For me, the grey can also conveniently function as a 'neutral'/almost nude under clothes, which is great as I don't like beige bras.

*Comfort:
I've come to the conclusion that I'm pretty projected and I may need added projection as an alteration in Comexim plunges. There's usually a crease going on in the bottom cup and Andromeda definitely slides down a bit throughout a day of wear, which can kind of hurt my ribcage after a while. Still, it's very wearable and pretty comfortable regardless, in part due to the cotton lining I suspect. The straps are a little too far apart for me (normally I have them moved in 2-3 cm./about an inch) but not so much that it hurts me.

So, all in all I'm super happy with this pretty grey bra - it's been holding up great over the past year (still almost feels like new) and it gets a lot of wear!

    It’s probably creasing because it is too small and/or perhaps the band is a little bit too tight even with the extra hooks even if it’s ok for you.

    But it’s a super lovely bra!

    Calluna Yeah that's what I was thinking! Band doesn't feel too tight at all though, and I don't tolerate overly tight bands well, so guess I would notice if it was straining.

    Luckily it's still wearable (: but yes 'technically' I may need a 70L or (when ordered directly) extra depth!
