    Didn't fit

    So this bra runs small in the band like Anna and others have said. I wasn't aware that the cups run small as well. So this is to small and I will be emailing Anna about exchanging it.
    Aside from the fact it's to small its a beautiful bra and I'll probably be ordering again (other then the replacement) soon.

      Out of curiosity: what happens if you bend the wires narrower? The cups definitely look too closed off for you, I think you might actually prefer to not have reduced cups in AP. I'm not sure if going up a cup will solve your problem, but I'm sure Anna will know!

    • 1

      Emailed Anna so well see what she suggests.
      I'll try sending the wires later and see if it helps any.
      Feel like everytime I figure out what style or cut I need my boobs change and I'm back to the start LOL

    • 1

      Are your measurements the same as when you posted your fit checks last? I looked back at them, and I do see gaping at the gore. The cup looks slightly tall to me, but this one does look too closed off for you. Were those pictures post-scoop and swoop as well? In these photos, it almost looks to me like you may have tall roots and maybe less center-fullness than Comexim expects? As lcl0706 said, you're unlikely to get great cleavage in well-fitting Comexim plunge. Some of their styles give more than others, but I find that an awful lot of them give a fairly minimized look. I believe AP's bras have a lower cut in our size range than Comexim's to start with though. I think you may want to do a fit check and link to your various fit checks. There's definitely something funny going on!

    • Ugh had a long thing typed up and realized I couldn't remember my perimeter measurements... Yeah I need to redo measurements LOL.
      In the 60HH pics all were post S&S. The only picture that wasn't post S&S was on the Hibiscus to show the change before S&S and after and I noted that on the picture its self.
      I agree I'm having issues with Comexim bra fits. 60H reduced fit great for a month then my boobs grew and I was squished and quadboobing. 60HH felt to tall and to small at the same time. I tried folding down the top as if it were reduced and my boobs were trying to spill out. I assume this is from pressure from my hand holding the top down. Now my AP 30FF is so closed and cuts so bad its on the edge of comical to me. Like how much spillage can I have.
      Did you look at my Ewa as well?!? I've obviously grow some all pictures were without cookie pads.
      I'll add new measurements and do a fit check with all Comexim and the Ewa to hopefully get to the bottom of this.

    • 2

      To me it looks like you have the perfect shape for Ewa's CHP bra. Lots of immediate projection and tall roots. It shouldn't cut in on you anywhere because it's super full on top. Both your Ewa and Comexim's look like they're too closed for you. It does look like you've gained volume (and you've been pretty steadily gaining volume). Comexim has been a tough fit for me lately too. If you try them again, I recommend trying their bras with stretch lace at the top (Mystic, Emmanuelle). For AP, I would suggest trying unreduced cups (and seeing what Anna can do for you, maybe a half cup?).

    • 2

      I don't know which CHP you're getting, but I will warn you in advance the Onyx and Lilia are not your typical CH cut bra. They have a satin edging that closes the cup off a little more than usual for the EM half cup shape.

    • If I'm right its the CH Onyx (LOL) that you sold/swapped with Amandafire... Haha guess we'll see how well it fits...

    • 1

      Yes it was mine lol. I suspect it will be too small and too closed off on top for you. But that is absolutely the exception to the CH rule, trust me. If it's too closed, try another one. I wondered if that's the one you got and that's why I wanted to give you a heads up ahead of time!

    • LOL yeah thanks for the heads up. I'm excited and nervous because it seems like I've had more misses then hits lately. I honestly excepted this one to be to big for some reason so it being to small and closed off really caught me off guard.

    • PetiteCollegiate I was torn between the Emmeanuelle and Veronique when I was ordering before so when I have the money I'll definitely try it. Half cup might work but are APs wires wide on the half cup like Comexim?

      (OT funny every time I put cup it tries to auto correct to CHP... Lol maybe it's a sign I need more CHP style cups)

    • 1

      If it makes you feel better, I didn't realize AP's cups ran ~1 cup small either, when I ordered.

    • 2

      I would imagine you could ask for narrower wires. I don't know though honestly, I haven't seen any reviews of her half-cups. I tried the single seam HC from Comexim and found it the same width as the plunge, just with less cup. Anna will know!

    • 2

      Thanks imabratinfluence I do feel better.
      PetiteCollegiate yeah hopefully she can figure something out because I seem to keep adding inches but still need narrow wires and my options are rather limited.

    • All APs I have tried have run smaller than my typical Comexim size. When I wore a 65M Comexim, a 30J AP was smaller and shorter in the cup. I wear a 60O Comexim now and my 28K AP is still much tighter. I'm not sure if that's the same experience for everyone. Reducing the cups/lowering the gore does take away some depth too. I'm not sure a Comexim half cup would be much better though. In my experience they've been much more shallow in my usual size, I'd need to size up at least a cup or more to get the projection I need. I also find them much much more closed on top than the EM CHP. Is this just the regular plunge reduced or?

    • gogobee This is the Sophisticated cut. That's my worry with the half cup as well is it being to shallow and as you move up cups wires widden and the half cup already has wider wires then the plunge.

  2. What a beaut this baby is! Pictures truly do not do it justice; the intricacy of the lace is seen much better in person. I was a bit nervous with size, as I've only tried the Emeline from AP, but I'd say it fits the same as my 36GG - Anna Pardal For Comexim ยป Emeline , more or less. The band hasn't started out as firm, but a size down would definitely be too small. The cups are a bit roomier in this model, but I think it's more a matter of how the cups are constructed versus than sizing inconsistency. All-in-all, I'd say 36GG ... is my right size for this bra. For reference, I typically wear a UK 32H/34GG, and my Comexim size is 75J. Other notable differences between this and Emeline is that the gore is a touch higher (still not at all painful), the cups cover my squidgy sides a bit more, and the straps feel closer together. The straps weren't an issue for me, per se, but something I noticed in the Emeline -- esp, in comparison to my Comexim plunges.

    The only disappointment with this bra is that it doesn't feel as well made and refined as Emeline, which is something I wouldn't expect with the hefty price tag ($62). It's still better made than my Comexim padded plunges, which retail for about $40, but I don't know that this particular model warrants the heavier charge. With Emeline, however, you can FEEL the difference in materials with its sturdy construction and tight stitching. I'll still continue to purchase as much as I can with a Comexim name tag.

    • I LOVE the look of this bra! So gorgeous! :D Bummer to hear about the quality though. AP should be amazing for the price!

    • Is there like a ribbon floating above the cup on your chest like there's the edge trim on the bra then space then a thin ribbon? Or is it just an illusion

    • Not an illusion! I tried to show it in pics, but it doesn't show up easily. The ribbon is held up by teeny tiny little strings. I think you can see it best in image 3.

    • I'm bummed that the hibiscus doesn't feel as sturdy to you. I just received my first AP, a lady grey, and I'm already so in love w/ fit that I'm contemplating others! I will of course give it a couple weeks to see how it holds up before ordering it a sibling. One of the things I love most is how quality it feels to wear - the tight stitching, like you are saying. It's firm and supportive, still reasonably flexible, and there's no feeling like I'm wearing helmets. It's that happy land of firm end of flexible. The stretch satin and the firm ribbon along the cup edge in this design help the structure for me. I'm surprised the Emeline won out for you because in pics Emeline looks like a Comexim basic with fancy lace on top. My Basic gets the job done, but the cups are a little too stretchy/loosely stitched to support me right. Any insights on these vs. the Basic?

    I love this bra! It's super comfy and the ribbon at the top gives me a bit extra coverage which I often need. The cups on this AP bra feel a little deeper than some of my other AP bras. The gore tacks perfectly and the lace does not show through shirts - even tight shirts! The band is very firm and because of this I do need to wear it with an extender. I am fine with this though since I would rather my bands be on the snug side than too loose. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite everyday bras! :)

    Hasn't set fit

    I want to love this bra but it doesn't get along with my tall, flat roots. The cups don't cut in, but there is a bit of empty space in the tops of the cups I don't fill in. I know by now that Comexim plunges probably just don't work for me, but they're hard to resist!

    The straps on this bra are IMPOSSIBLE. They are so hard to adjust. I guess it's a feature to prevent them from loosening up during wear, but it took me forever just to loosen and tighten the straps while trying on.

    I'm also not a fan of seamed cups on the Comexim bras I've tried. There is too much of a difference between the padding and the seam, creating a lumpy look. I have Wacoal bras that are sewn more evenly or with thinner foam to prevent these ridges. I am pretty picky about this sort of thing though. If I did find the perfect Comexim fit like everyone else, maybe I would live with it? One day.

    This is my first experience with Anna Pardal. This is a beautiful bra and so light weight with great projection and lift. The band runs a little small for a 34. I am hoping it stretches. I am full on bottom so my smaller side needs an insert to fill it.
