Hasn't set fit

This is my Comexim set Black Friday sale that arrived yesterday, who hoo!

Unfortunately, I have gained weight and it's just a *smidge* too small on my larger side - I know it probably looks like it fits. The fit on my smaller side is perfect though.
The same with the matching panties, they fit, but would fit better if I lost 10 or 15 pds, lol. I think their size chart for underwear is pretty accurate.

So these are the differences I can think of between padded plunges and Karen (unpadded plunge):

Unlike many balconette bras, Karen has a 4-part cup; 3 parts on the bottom of the cup, and one part horizontal across the top. I think this makes the bra rounder on the bottom, instead of a pointer shape.

The bra is double-lined, even across the lace; also the wings of the bra are double-lined. Not all bra manufacturers do this #ComeximQuality This is why these Comexim bras last so long!

The top of cup is lined with an elastic - perfectly fine for my shape (FOB), but like the other review said-- if one is FOT, I'm wondering if that elastic edge would cut in a bit.

Interestingly, the shoulder straps are unlike any other Polish bra I've tried; they really stay in towards the center of one's body! Completely different from Ewa Michalak BM bras, which tend to go a little wide with the shoulder straps.

There isn't as much immediate projection as with an Ewa Michalak BM bra, it works okay for me (there's a little bit of space in between the underwire & my boob) but I guess one can always request "added depth at the wire."

I think it actually runs large in the cup compared to a padded plunge in the same size; I would say probably size down.
The gore is really narrow on this bra, too.
about me: FOB, narrow roots and projected shape, center full. average root height.

I think this is also a petite-friendly (or short breast root friendly. or high-set breast friendly) style, because like a typical Comexim, the underwires don't go very high towards the armpits, like some brands do.

If one has a lot of breast tissue on the side, I don't think this would be a good style for them (maybe a brand like Elomi would be better?) because this is a good style for someone with narrow boobs/close-set breasts.

the fabric itself is a navy blue leaves print, with grey lace, 3 grey bows, and dark navy elastic for the shoulder straps, and dark navy wings.

    It's so pretty! I didn't know it was double lined. Now I want this set!

    I just went to look for it and I don't think it's offered anymore! That or I can't find it on their website. Maybe I'll try Mystic instead.

  • WildWolff , you're right, I think it's gone! I couldn't find it either.
    Mystic would be interesting, I think it's their only half-padded bra?
