I ordered this beauty (haha) with reduced cup hight, centre gore, straps moved in and as a 3HC.
I do own another comexim 3HC in 65HH and this bra feels much smaller then the 65HH, but it gives me the most AMAZING cleavage! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> I am wearing this bra for about 3 hours now and I didn't have to replace it once! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> (unlinke the mint plunge, which I had to replace every couple of minutes btw)
So what else is there to say.. I love it! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
My shape is low set, soft, slightly pendulous, with narrow and short roots.
I got this bra pre-loved from another bratabase user. I normally wear 65 bands in Comexim, but the measurements on this one pointed to it having a tighter band, so I decided to give it a go. The lace does not cover the entire back of the band, so the band is a bit stretchier in the back. Still supportive, just stretchier than my 65J - Comexim » Natalie Half Cup (491) for example. There are 4 x3 set of hooks, which is a nice feature in the bras in this size range. I ...also notice that the straps are a bit wider.
The shape is rounded and mounded! Not as "out there" projected like Ewa Michalak bras, but nice and round. I actually find that the cups on Comexim bras fit me better than EMs chps, which is probably due to my average apex projection and short roots. Comexim's half cups are shallower than EM's chps.
Overall a well made bra with pretty lace and nice rounded cups. Read more 75 more words

The holy grail bra, I have finally found it! Cakes on a plate + basketball roundness + enough immediate projection. SO COMFORTABLE. I wore it new out of the package 2 different days this week and forgot about it, it was that great. It's also GORGEOUS. The lace is smooth under tops. I put it on and said, "My boobies look pretty!" And my bf definitely agreed, haha. This definitely has more bottom projection than plunges. The open cup allows my tall but medium-shallowness roots to do what they wish. No gaping that i get with Comexim/AP plunges. No quadding. I take it off at the end of the day and the underwire marks mirror my IMF perfectly. I am going to handwash and wear it a few more times before I order more Comexim 3hc's pronto! Thanks to Ayouthfulporpoise for your awesome blog review. #boobtwin.
This bra is very similar in fit as my EM CHP Marcepanowa in 75F, which is great, because both are a near perfect fit and pretty much my new favourite bras! The only thing at the moment is that the cups are ever so slightly small, which causes my boobs to bubble over a little when I move around a lot (say run for the bus or something). But that's mostly due to the fact that I've recently gained some hormonal weight, which should go back down soon.
I compared the bra directly to my CHP, and the wires and cups seem pretty much the same, width, height and ...depth wise. The band on the Ewa is a lot looser, while the cups of the Comexim half cup come up just a third of an inch or so higher than those of the CHP. I actually prefer the cup height of the Comexim, as my boobs feel slightly more securely packaged, and bounce a little less when I walk (I love Ewa, but her padded bras make my boobs bounce somehow).
The profile I get in this Comexim is great; very round, uplifted, slightly minimised, and within my frame. It definitely gives cakes on a plate style cleavage, while (mysteriously) also pushing my boobs closer towards each other. I therefore get much more cleavage than I got with Comexim plunges (imperfect match for me), and Ewa plunges (very good match for my shape). The cups have a lot of bottom projection, but not too much over all projection.
The bra itself is beautiful (as it should be with that name), very classy black lace over a smooth pinky beige fabric. The lace is very flat, and does not show too much through thin fabrics. The foam Comexim uses feels a little cheaper and more squeaky than Ewa's foam though. The straps of this bra are a little stretchy and quite thin, but it's not proved a problem while wearing it. The band feels very nice and tight, and I appreciate that it as 3 hooks, as opposed to the 2 hooks I get on my Ewa.
Over all, I slightly prefer the look and feel of my Ewa, but in terms of comfort and cup height the Comexim has an edge.
I also tried the other half cup version by Comexim (the 1 seam, 2 part one), but unfortunately I ordered it in the wrong size. However, I already could tell that it runs a little smaller, and, most importantly, is shallower in the bottom at the cup than the 3HC version. I may try the 2HC again, but probably go up a cup size compared to the 3HC.
I currently have a custom order out for a 3HC Poison Ivy in 75J, to see whether a bigger size will solve my slight overflow problem, and so that I have a half cup for my bigger boob days on hand. Let's see how that fits!
PS: I just noticed that the lace pattern is very different from the stock pictures! I much prefer my version https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" />
I recently got a 65J Belen 3HC which is beautiful, but not a perfect fit. While the bra band was a bit snug, the cups did fit, but were a little bit too tall for my functionally short roots. So Wilderness1 was super kind and generous to offered to send me a bunch of her altered Comexims to try. Looking at the list, some looked like they were going to be too small, and some looked like they had similar enough measurements and alterations, so I narrowed it down to 4 bras (one of which is actually Anna Pardal, which was made by Comexim). ...I had the option to purchase two of them, and this is one of them, though spoilers: I didn’t.
This bra came to me from her, but it was from another user, so I can’t fully gage how much it has stretched out. I was able to comfortably clasp it on either of the two middle sets of hooks (has 4 columns). The black lace on top of the champagne layer is striking, in the same way it was on my Victoria (which was navy lace). It’s got a bit of black lace to edge the cups instead of the eyelash lace that Victoria has.
Sadly, it’s still not a great fit. Straps moved in are ace, but the cups are still a bit tall and guppy, especially at the straps where my tissue is not prominent. Even though it’s got 2cm reduced cups, it’s got 2cm added depth at the wire, which negates the reduced cups in my opinion. My boobs just settle lower in the cups and still run out of tissue by the time they reach the top of the cups. I think that this set of alterations, minus the added depth, would fit me better. I’m not convinced that the lower gore is a benefit either. Or perhaps a 70H with added depth at the wire. Not sure if that would work any better or differently.
Because it’s a little bit taller and open still, it is quite visible under my tops. I tried a few to see if I could get it to work with anything, but the cup edge was still a bit noticeable. Unless I wore a cami or tank over it under my tops.
Somewhat sad it didn’t work, but I am glad to have tried it. It makes me think that maybe my Ingrid really does have reduced cups, but simply irrelevant or redundant due to the added depth. Read more 318 more words

An absolutely gorgeous bra. Padding is not too heavy or stiff the way the EM Syrena is.
I have this bra out for a test run from Zathiya to try to decide if I need reduced cups and straps moved in. I think I definitely need wires overlapped . With my touching boobs, the gore is always shifted to one breast or the other. This band is very short for a 60. I needed 1.5 inch in extender just to close it. My tight measurement is 26.5 and comfortable 27.5. I have a small amount of gaping in my smaller breast . What does everyone think? Would I do better in reduced cup and straps moved in? This bra fits well under my arms, not too wide in the cup with the wrinkles that I've had with every UK size I've tried.
I like the look of this bra. Size wise I needed to size up one cup from plunge style. I wear 70HH in Comexim plunges and 70HH in this was too small, so I took 70J and it fits rather nicely. The gore does not tack. For comparison I wear Ewa Michalak in size 70FF (though I feel some of EMs I would prefer 65G). The band is tighter than my Comexim Rita and does get a bit uncomfortable in the end of the day. The shape is very rounded.
I'm really disappointed in this bra. I bought two Comexims before and they were size 65 and soooo big on me. So I sized down to a 60 and it's incredibly tiny. I need two band extenders. Hopefully it'll stretch quickly.
