    Didn't fit

    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!

    Pros:
    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''.

    Cons:
    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

      You can post a fit request, this should help you get some detailed answers to your questions! :)

    • Yes, post a fit check!! The basic also runs small from what I understand.

    • immodestmouse lcl0706 yes, I think I will, but I have already ordered the size up (a size up in the bravantgarde, too 😃). I'm expecting it to arrive maybe late next week or the week after, so I'll do the fit check when I try those on. Thanks!

    • Cymbidium if the pics I'm seeing on this review are you, it does look about 1/2 cup too small.

    • Nah, it's not me. I noticed the same thing and thought it fit kind of similar on me and her.

    • I have less armpit tissue (for lack of a better term) and the same gaping. My strap placement isn't too wide either.

    My first Polish bra! So my UK size is 26E/F, I decided to get the 55H off a listing here since it's said to run small. There's not too much to say about the fit because it fits very well! The band is nice and snug on the loosest hook. The wires are a little on the wide and tall size, but I don't mind since the wires are soft. I like the tallness anyway since my roots are so tall, and I feel like the cups actually give me enough coverage for them. I even get a hint of cleavage with this bra! I think if I were to order a Comexim Plunge on my own, I would ask for the straps to be moved in for a little extra comfort and cleavage. The straps aren't so wide set that they're chafing my armpits, but because the cups are so tall I think it'd just be better if they were moved in a little.

    Band is true to size. Simple and comfortable, but runs about a cup size too small.

    This bra is not owned any more
