I am fairly new to properly fitting bras. I measure ~24.5 snug, ~23 BTT, and ~32 overbust. I have only ever owned a Freya deco soft cup in 30D, which which was really the wrong size and gaped at the top, and a 28F (28:7) Freya strapless, which is a decent fit but I belive the cups are too wide and the band is extremely firm. Nothing else has fit nearly as well as the deco strapless. I think that is due to the rounded top of the cup, which tend to fit better.
I decided to order from Wellfitting.com because as I ... understand their 26/55 bands are returnable while Comexim's are not. It took about 2 weeks for the bra to be made/shipped and another week for the package to reach me. The packaging didn't seem that damaged, just a bit dirty and worn at the corners of the box. Both of the bras I ordered were in great condition. Upon first seeing them I thought they looked just a bit cheaper than I expected. But once I put them on they felt amazing!
The basic beige is a 26H (26:8). I loved the shape it gave: much more projected and inward-pointing than the Freya's slightly squashed down and outward-pointing look. Compared to the Freya strapless it felt so light and non-constricting, like the bra would move easily with you and mold to your shape rather than holding you strictly in place (very important to me). I loved the shape it gave: much more projected, rounded, and inward-pointing than the Freya's slightly squashed down and outward-pointing look. There was no quadboobing, uncomfortable wires, and the strap placement was great. The band seemed very stretchy, which was a relief since after the Freya is hooked it feels as if the slight stretch it can achieve is very difficult to get. It is not as shiny as some of the pictures on here make it look. I don't think I am a true 26 band so I can't be sure, but I beleive it runs true to size since it stretched fairly easily to 27''.
It did not fit. I suspect it was 1/2 a cup to 1 cup too small, but I ordered the next two sizes up just to be sure my inexperience would not cause me to be incorrect. The problems were that gore did not tack, there was too much booby near my armpit outside of the cup, and too much tissue not enclosed by the top of the cup. It might be due to the too-small cups causing the seams to be placed wrong, but the seams were very prominent under a shirt. Swoop and scoop might not stay in place with 26 band too well, but I can't tell since it does not all fit inside. If you divide the bra cup into four quadrants, the lower outer quadrant would have a small area (maybe 1\2 a little finger) that was not filled.
Where some advice would be helpful is regarding the different fit on my breasts. On my larger one it seemed just a bit small and like a cup size up would be perfect. On my smaller breast when I swooped and scooped my nipple was almost falling out. This did not happen on my larger breast even though more tissue was outside of the cup and clearly had more trouble fitting inside. Despite not all of me fitting in the cup it still gaped ate the top a bit with the little booby. What would cause these differences (mainly the gaping)? Would it be a too-loose band or different shaped breasteses causing this? Do you believe a cup size up would aggrevate the gaping?
THIS WAS LONG
Thank you for reading and any help. I really want this to work, and I have not found a better alternative to comexim
