Fits

This came from jlcl119 ...I have loved this one for a while, especially after I saw the review Wilderness1 had on it. I had some initial issues on my end getting this but I’m super glad I did.

My shape is soft and pendulous, even to fob fullness, taller roots but shallow upper tissue, and center full. I’m functionally short rooted and fob. I usually wear a 30FF but sometimes size down to 30F due to my shape issues. In Ewa Michalak I generally do 70F but can do 65 bands if they stretch to 29” or more. In Comexim, I've typically gone for 65HH/J or 70H/HH depending on the cut and alterations.

I have to say that I was nervous about this being a 65 band, and newer. But the original owner is a veteran here and I trust her measurements to be pretty accurate (and close to my own). While my stretched measure was a little smaller, I am pretty conservative with how much I pull, and I could tell once I got it that the band was a stretchier one. The band is perfect. The cup height was another concern because I have definitely had a mix of cup height and prefer it to be lower as I am not very full on top. Could I use 1cm less? Maybe. Same with the gore. I could possibly get a little bit lower. I think that this bra is a way better fit than the 65HH - Comexim » Queen Of Hearts Plunge Bra (367) . I think the measurements are similar but there’s something about this that feels better. The foam maybe? The only problem I have is that I would have had the straps moved in 2cm for my petite frame and narrow shoulders that tend to slope. The straps are definitely doable, but wider than I need. I might see if I can find someone locally to alter the straps for me. I’m still considering trying the 65H/70G with 2cm added depth.

The material on the outside is so soft. The cups are lined with a silky satin material for the cookie pockets. I don’t have any cookies as I no longer have any Ewas with them. But, I’m also a few pounds lighter after having some appetite issues in January when I was sick, so I might fill up the small side a little bit more if I gain the volume back. I must email Joanna and find out which ones are the same construction and materials. I like it a lot. The bottoms are also a perfect fit.

Anyway, I love love love it!

    Congrats! Looks like a great fit

    Oh that's great that you got this one. I love my Scottie too! It looks really good on you. Nice that it has the cookie pockets for versatility.

    Plaid bra! I feel like I'd have the urge to wear this as outerwear if I had it. Glad that it fits!

    I'm so glad you got this! It's stunning on you and looks like a good fit. Borderline too tall, but it's not super noticeable.

  • 3

    Thanks everyone. Yeah it’s definitely too wide straps and borderline too tall so I think I am either going to request 1cm lower cups and gore height with the straps moved in 2cm, or size down to the 65H/70G and request 2cm added depth to the wire. But it’s mostly pretty good. I’m about 5 pounds lower than normal so we’ll see if it comes back and affects the fit.

    Calluna this looks just LOVELY on you, a super nice colorway & cut. Quite flattering!

    Hope you get your health/appetite back <3
    Let us know whether you end up having the straps altered (should be doable) or order a custom one!

    What a cool plaid. Looks great! It’s always nice to read when someone likes their new acquisition!

    Ok, wearing it today and I am finding it to be a little bit snug. I probably do need a 3x4 closure or a 70 band even though it is stretchy. I do still love it though.

  • 3

    Woah this looks so good on you! So happy you found it a decent fit. I am drooling over the Scottie...it's on my wishlist!

    Thank you aogg ! I do love it. Would love it more if it was 3x4 with the straps moved in 2cm.

    I'm super new to Comexim and very interested in this bra! Would you say their plunge and half cup styles fit TTS then? Or have you decided whether to try the 65H? I'm a 32F UK, even fullness and don't fit bras that require FOT. Super confused over what size to get for myself. Any ideas?

  • 3

    Hi mintchocchip ! Comexim is a different size scheme than UK sizes. This 65HH roughly translates into a 30G UK. I’m between a 30F and 30FF. These days I mostly lean towards 30FF (so sister size to your 32F). Cups are scaled in 2cm increments instead of 1” (2.5cm) which means that in our size range, 1-2 cups up from the normal UK size is about right. But shape matters too. I have soft, even to fob, functionally short roots due to shallow upper fullness of tallish roots.

    The plunge is better suited for fot tissue usually, the discussion lately has been whether or not the plunge has changed in the fit/design, specifically referring to this bra. It does feel more like a balconette than a plunge. The overall cup height is shorter than some of the other bras in the same size has been. If you look at the 65HH - Comexim » Jade Plunge pictures you’ll see it’s a little bit more plunge like. The cups are taller too.

    The 3HC is deeper and narrower of the half cups. It’s still shallower than the plunge and most people have to size up. I’m 28” snug but prefer bands that stretch to 29-30” without distorting the wires so it’s usually a 65 with a stretchy 4 column closure or a 70. If you are a 32, you’ll need a 70 or 75.

    Does any of this help?

    Hi Calluna , thanks! I believe we have similar shapes though I am still unsure about my roots. I’m thinking of a 70G to start. Do you think I’m on the right track? Or should I go for a 70H? I would like a little bit cleavage boost but without quadding.

  • I’m contemplating a 70G, but only if I decide to get depth at the wire added. There’s no way that it would fit otherwise. I currently have my 70H - Comexim » Hot Chocolate Plunge and it’s a lower gore with 2 cm added depth to the wire. I could probably do 1cm depth or none at all. But I think it’s depending on the style of plunge because the Hot Chocolate seems like a more classic Comexim plunge compared with this Scottie. And, additionally, my 70s are still tight. I definitely could not get away with either this Hot Chocolate or my 70H - Comexim » Triss 3hc (which is a little bit small on me) in a 65 band. The bands of these are closer to a true 30 though I measure 28” snug (I just have a sensitive sternum and periodically inflamed ribs so I need a little bit more give than most). You’re probably going to need a 75 band if you are a 32F. I’d say 75G or 75H if it’s altered and depending on the alterations.

  • Calluna the designs I was looking at apart from Scottie are Ginger, Patricia, Victoria and Elise. I did look at Reddit and on here and everyone has varying experiences with these and some say Comexim has reworked their sizing too. My snug underbust is 32”, so that would be a 75? I think considering there two (?) different styles on my wishlist I should probably not be too greedy and just get two sister sizes to try first. Would the half cups fit differently size wise than the plunges?

    Ok so yes, the half cups so run smaller than the plunges. Also, the Ginger of the list you have is a totally different fit from the other plunges as far as I know. It’s a shallower and wider cut. I had a Victoria 3HC and it was lovely though a tad too small. I can’t speak for the others but there are reviews and information on the Patricia and Elise, I believe. If you are US based, you might be better off trying an unaltered 75G in a plunge or a 75H in a 3HC from breakout bras and go from there. Check out the data and measurements on the sizes here. However, you might need to size up still. If you know what your horizontal perimeter is, use that as a guide for the cup depth. If you have a difference between the horizontal and vertical, you may want to average the two and create a range.

    Calluna thank you! So by "shallower and wider", you mean the cup tends to be smaller? I'm not in the US so would have to order directly. How long does shipping usually take, is there tracking, and how long do refunds take to process (if you have ever returned stuff)?

  • 1

    Maybe I’ve misunderstood, and please correct me if I have, but I think shallower and wider might mean there is the same volume in the cup but it is just distributed differently.... less projection and more width- so the same amount of tissue takes up more space side to side rather than nipple to chest wall. Depending on other factors like how close set you are or where your fullness is greatest,etc , a wider cup side to side (left to right) may or not result in a shape mismatch or a well fitting but nonetheless unbearably uncomfortable bra.

    Unsolicited observation about breast size perception by humans in general: I think there might be a tendency in the world generally to consider breast size and cup size solely based on the amount of projection forwards from the chest wall, rather than the over all volume of tissue regardless of distribution. I don’t think this tendency serves the bra wearing population very well. It’s hard to break out of this ingrained habit and that makes it harder to accurately communicate about breast and cup shape and to find a properly shaped bra. IDK. Shutting up now.

    Yes dagmarwulfe that’s exactly what I mean. The tissue goes farther back around your ribs and projects less. It’s like comparing an 8 oz coffee mug to an 8 oz soup bowl. The shapes of the two are drastically different. If you put the mug up to your chest at the opening, it would occupy a smaller surface area than the soup bowl. The soup bowl would cover a larger area but not necessarily be as deep.

    mintchocchip I've only ever ordered direct from Comexim and the bras were altered so not returnable.
