My shape: large, heavy, narrow rooted, center full, close set, with tons of immediate projection.
I've been wanting this bra since the moment Comexim revealed it, and I was not disappointed! It's even prettier in person, and the pink edging on the top of the cup is particularly fetching. It's pretty without being fussy, which is exactly what I like.
It's comfortable, too, and the band is TTS. It seems like at least on the larger end of the spectrum it's only the bras with lace on the band that you need to order a band size up - I'd have been fine in a 42.
The gore tacks after ...replacing the wires with stronger ones and there's plenty of room at the wire. There isn't quite enough room for my center fullness, which is my hardest area to fit, and that ends up pushing the wires out of my imf. I'm not entirely sure if this is fixable by alteration or not, though I may try narrowing the gore to see if that helps.
It seems like the soft cup Comexims are really my best fit. Something about the soft fabric vs the padding makes the soft cups better suited to my center fullness. Still, I love the look of this one! Read more 103 more words
So this is a custom ordered Comexim Ardea Half Cup in a 65O. I didn't get any alterations done with this one.
Hmm. I'm not really sure where to start with this one. The materials used to make this bra were lovely. They were soft, and they didn't irritate my skin. The bow details were cute. I was a little disappointed in how dull the colors were in real life though. I was expecting more of a vibrant navy blue and pink details, so if you were debating this bra based on the colors of it via the Comexim model's pictures, you're going to be disappointed.
On to the ...fit itself: Yikes. -Let's start with the straps in relativity to my frame. It's absolutely comical. I'm slender and apparently, tiny (so says my husband). The strap placement is worse than an Ewa bra. I would have to have my straps moved in at least 4 cm to even attempt to fix the glaring problem with the fit itself. -The cups are cut really short/shallow. Or maybe I'm just pressing that issue because my Ewa bras offer better coverage due to their lace panel added to the top if the cup. I said in the picture review that perhaps Comexim should consider doing something similar in their small band/large cup bras. -The cups are cut strange regardless. Their padding is geared more towards an Ewa S style thickness, but at the same time, the cut itself is halfway between a plunge and a half cup. -The wires used were 12inches long, while the length of the cups where the wires were located was 12.5 inches. -The gore doesn't tack -The weight of my breasts almost seem to push the bra band down. -Lastly, I don't even think my larger side fits into a K/O cup.
Edit to add my ribcage is measuring 28.5inches right now.
My shape: semi-conical, splayed, narrow width, tall shallow roots. My breasts don't conform to bra shapes very well and are quite short.
This bra is very lovely and soft. It's a nice shade of dark blue with cranes and a small pink bow. This half cup is closed on top, making it work really well for my short breasts. The only gaping I get is from the straps being a bit too wide. The band is stretchy and stretches to a max of 29". The cups run a bit small, measuring at 11.375", compared to the 11.5" of the Giovanna and Talisman. Unfortunately, this seems to be below my lower limit of cup depth and it causes me some pain.
This bra is too lovely to pass up, I'd like to try it again in the next size up and the straps moved in.
Actually love this bra. I have a lot of bras that sort of splay my breast tissue out to the side and this is very good at projecting them forwards. I bought this as part of my first foray into Polish bras and now I will probably never go back. I feel like the sizing runs on the small side, but even so very happy with it over all.
