Get alterations if you're short and have a narrow frame - seriously. I'm a big fan of this bra, though I do feel that the band is riding up. Maybe this has a stretchy band? I might have to invest in a 55 band or something for the Basic model, oddly enough. I guess a 55J is where I need to go for this, which sounds crazy to me but I guess isn't that crazy. The cups have been lowered, as has the gore, and the straps have been moved inward. I am positive this would be too tall and would hurt my armpits, otherwise. My bigger breast is coming out near the gore whilst my smaller one is sitting pretty. Not sure what to do about that. Would one cup size up end up being too much? It's not uncomfortable, but the seams show through clothes on my larger side (left boob) and don't on my smaller side.
The wires are very good and my armpits are actually safe. However... I am quadding about. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> I had this problem with my entire order (all 60HHs in bras and a swim top in 65H). It may be period related. Oh well. Anyway, good for close set, projected boobs. This has been altered and has reduced cups/gore, straps moved in, and 3 hook back instead of 2 hook back.
Wow, so. Ok. Lol This bra is too big, obviously. It looks comical. I have a half inch to an inch extra space on top, but the bottoms extend far enough for me. I can't comment on wire width or much else, becuase the cups are simply too big for me. The band in the 60, definitely stretches to 30. It's very stretchy, which I was banking on being as I'm not quite 28" underbust.
I do like the material a lot, and I'm excited to receive my 65G from Comexim. Speaking of which, I recieved a 65F and this, which fits more like a 65H, both today. The 60HH had cups too big ...( at least on top), and the 65F had cups that, earlier I thought were only making me quad slightly. I'm definitely keeping it, but as the day went on, I realized that the bottom of the cups were too small and makes the cups stretch (which someone pointed out on my fit request). I'll go into more detail about that later on my 65F Comexim Emanuelle review- being as I'm procrastinating with a project right now and don't have much time/ also feel that's more appropriate.
Because of the 65F being just slightly off, and the 60HH being probably an inch or so off up top, I have a much, much better understanding of what I need in Comexim. I already have the Basic in 65G on the way, but I really believe I need shortened cup height and a higher gore. I almost fall out of my Emauelle, but that may also be because it's just slightly too small. The gore in the Basic looked like it'd be fine in a size down. I'm hoping that cup height won't be an issue in 65G, but we'll see...
I want to mention that the padding in both Comexims is very minimal, and "flimsy" similar to a Freya longline--not moulded. Others informed me of this before I purchased Comexims, as I don't care too much for stiff moulding, but I wanted to include that in my review. I love love love the padding in both my Comexims.
Anyway, yeah. I have tall "roots", narrow boobs and need projection. I'm mostly even, but functionally FoB. If you're FoB and think you're in between sizes- as far as I've experienced thus far, I'd maybe go for the smaller size because the two I have measure fuller on top. If you go for the bigger size and maybe if you have short roots or even long, shallow roots, try getting shortened cup height.
Also, this 60 is stretchy, but the previous owner mentioned that it's always been. I think I could easily wear a smaller band in this, but the 60 is comfortable to me (and now I'm even more worried about my 65G).
That's about all I can say for now, as this is too big on me so anything else might be inaccurate.
Love this bra. I ordered it in the same size and alterations with my Ingrid bra but they sent it with 3*3 hooks instead of 3*4 hooks. Even considering this, the band is shorter than Ingrid one. I guess this is why I feel uncomfortable in it sometimes.
I have a handful of Comexim plunges, all in 60HH -- if one thing can be said about these bras, they are for the most part incredibly consistent. They fit my FOB, center-full, soft breasts incredibly well (it is worth noting that my breasts are about 3 fingers-widths apart, but the cups are relatively close-together -- this does not make the bra uncomfortable and I don't notice it, visually or otherwise, during wear). I normally wear UK 28Fs, so if anyone is confused about Comexim sizing, I had luck staying with the same band and sizing up 2 cups (60HH is equivalent to a 28G)!!
This was my first direct Comexim order - and let me tell you, I was so hopeful for a perfect fit. I had previously tried a 60J plunge and found the tops of the cup to be wayyyyy too tall. Although the bottom of the cup was a perfect fit in this size. But given the huge amount of extra unfilled space at the top of the cup, I didn't think my fit problems would be solved by sizing down one cup size (rookie move?).
So, I requested this bra to have a reduced cup height thinking it would solve my fit problems. HUGE MISTAKE. The cup does not ...have enough volume for me. The bottom of the cup is empty and my breasts ended up smashed towards the top of the cup (quad city) in a very unflattering pointy shape. This is a fit disaster.
On the bright side, the band is wonderfully tight and the requested alternations were made - the gore is narrowed and the cups were reduced.
I am not ready to give up on finding a perfect Comexim fit. I just bought an unaltered 60HH from another user as an experiment to see how that fits. Does anyone have any suggestions for me?
A lady at a local shop ordered this for me in a 26G but it was a bit small and gave me quadboob that was very visible through my shirt. The band length was perfect though. The 28G is a pretty good fit, but I'd love to try a 26GG (55J, I think). This bra seems to have enough immediate projection and is very comfortable. I love that it has 4 rows of hooks instead of 3. The cups aren't super tall and I like that. I think that this bra might run a bit on the small side as compared to other Comexim plunges, but with relatively more depth. I can only compare it to the Rita and Adore, which seem to be larger and shallower, and the Ginger, which is also very shallow. My experience is limited. Overall, this is a great basic beige quality bra that I plan on getting lots of wear out of.
Technically this can stretch to 29" however I find it way too tight without an extender (do ribcages expand somehow over time? hmm). Even so, I wear this with an extender and it gives me the smoothest shape under clothes. I think that because it is not a reduced height cup, it curves in at the top where I also curve in, which makes it fit well. I don't think it is a 100% perfect fit, but I am content with it.
