Oh.My.God.Oh.My.God.Oh My God! Here I am wearing a size 28:7 bra! @Comexim Adore Plunge bra in 60F. This is my first shot at a Polish bra/ a bra based off of centimeters instead of inches. IMO, all brands should follow centimeters instead of inches as it is more accurate and allows for a greater range of sizes. It's so often you see women who need only a half cup size larger and that is just not available in UK/US bras. This bra fits! It actually FITS! It is my second real fitting bra (the other is more of a sexy bra, not an every day ... bra) that is not a sports bra. I will most likely try a 60E, 28:7 next time to compare and maybe get some cleavage like the Comexim models have.
THE BAND. This band was SO comfortable for me. It had no digging and did not move around. It was just really snug, like a firm hug. Which just seems like witchcraft to me because the materials don't seem all that different from my Claudette's or other bras. I believe it is just two layers of power mesh with thick elastic binding. There this very pretty "extended" band coming off of the bottom of the functional band that is a single layer if mesh and a very thin piece of elastic. As pretty as it is, it is highly unnecessary and non-functional. When I wore the bra to my ten hour shift, it rolled up almost immediately and could no longer be seen. I did make sure you could see it in the pictures.
THE CUP. This bra is considered to be a padded, plunge bra. Neither of which I feel are very descriptive of it. The cup is a three piece cup made out of very thin, stiff foam covered in a black mesh and finished with this darling gold binding at the top of the cup. This decorative binding causes the cup to be more closed on top, which is one of the main parts of this bra that I think make it fit me so great. While I do have tall-ish roots and I am mostly center/top full with more inner fullness that outer/bottom fullness, I feel that this cup fits me like a full coverage cup and follows the shape of my breast extremely well. The mesh does not feel particularly good or bad to my fingers, I don't really feel it all with my breasts. The left cup appears to be cut angled more upward and curled inward (smaller breast) while the right cup appears to cut straight coming out from the gore in an extreme-ish angle (larger breast). Because of this, the bra seems to fit my smaller breast better than my larger breast. The larger breast will gape before the smaller one will during normal activities where a stiff-padded cup bra would normally have a bit of gaping. The projection also seems quite perfect for me. If you need ALL THE PROJECTION, this bra may not be the best for you.
THE WIRES. The wires on this bra are fairly firm, not as firm as some I have tried, but they certainly aren't flexible by any means. They are also fairly short. Shorter wires usually cause my tissue to escape over top of these short wires but this rarely happens with this bra. During a ten hour shift I only felt the need to pull the top of my breast back in the cup like 2 or 3 times. They also have that "perfect" wire width for me, directly in between narrow wires and wide wires for my size range (about 4.5"). The wires never dug in.
THE GORE. Sits just about flat on my sternum and a little bit on my larger breast. I have this problem with are bra gores that are not plunges. The gore comes up way to high for me to consider this to be a plunge bra. It did seem to dig in from time to time. If it does not soften up with a few wears like my other bras have, I will simply bend them away from my body slightly. The wires do not overlap on this bra, they just sit cuddled next to each other.
THE STRAPS. The pretty gold binding along the top of the cup continues up the straps, stopping at the shoulder. This detailing makes the straps only partially adjustable. Which is generally just fine for me. The back of the gold detail/the rest of the strap is a soft, supple elastic which is comfortable and forgiving. They are what I would call an average width. They're not delicate and thin but they're definitely not super thick and unnecessary. They are pretty wide though. I would like to try the narrowed straps, but the wide ones don't really bother me. Them being so wide makes it really easy to show off the beautiful decoration.
OVERALL. I really can not think of anything bad to say about this bra besides it's name not accurately describing the bra. I'd definitely just call it 'The Adore Bra." The gore is a normal height, the cups are a normal height and it's definitely not a full-cup bra. It perhaps could be called a balcony bra with a plunge-like detail. IMO, the cups create a fairly straight line across the chest with a slight plunge down to the gore.
It's beautiful. It's comfortable. It fits like a dream and the quality is high and noticeable. It could easily become a push-up bra if it have cookie pockets or a nice bump pad in the bottom. Perhaps a sling to assist with pulling the tissue even further towards the center of the chest.
I LOVE THIS BRA & look forward to trying more from @Comexim .
