Firstly thanks to everyone who provided feedback, it was immensely helpful!
After wearing a few times and washing, it really did soften up. It is now less pointy and gappy (see updated photos). And it’s more comfortable now.
There is still cleavage and some gapping at the top of the right cup which is my smaller boob. Gore doesn’t tack at the top but it doesn’t seem to be an issue. The band fits snug but it’s not uncomfortable. I’m FOB ...center full and I think I have narrow short roots. I like the narrow gore (it came overlapped without requesting which works for me) and how light the bra’s materials are.
I’m still not fully happy with it but I’m hoping it will continue to soften up? I did email comexim with photos for feedback. Joanna said she thought the size was fine and to try straps moved in 2 cm. So I’ve ordered a 3HC with that and am waiting to see how that works! Read more 85 more words
The black basic is the SMALLEST, TIGHTEST Comexim you'll ever find. According to the helpful ladies at Wellfitting, the basic bra fits tightest of all Comexim models, and the black basic bra fits tighter than the taupe shades. On top of that, I converted wrong and ordered a cup size too small. For reference, I wear 34FF in Cleo and 32G in Freya. The 75HH Comexims I have fit me much better. If I were to reorder, I'd get the 75J because of the tightness in the black colorway. Despite my sizing woes, this is the correct shape for me (narrow roots, full on top).
For reference I'm in between a 32F and 32FF in Cleo.
This bra fits like a 32F.
The size seems right for this bra. I have tried 70 and 75 bands in Comexim and 75 is my preferred size. I have to use extenders with their 70 bands. The cups are pretty good here, but I have a Basic in a 75HH as well, and those cups are pretty good, too. The molded cups are pretty forgiving.
This bra is strange, however. I've owned two other Basics, and this bra is totally different from the others. The straps are quite stretchy, the cups are lined with ...white fabric (instead of the same color as the bra), and the cups are stitched oddly. It's hard to explain, but the top horizontal/diagonal seam is stitched in such a way that it's pretty obvious under shirts. It makes it look like I am falling out of the bra, because the seam is so indented (even though there's a whole other section of the cup above the indent). The other Basics I've owned were not like this. Read more 79 more words
