It fits perfectly on my smaller side (8.5" perimeter) but my larger side (9) feels a bit unstable because the cups aren't as tall as I need for my tall breasts and I would quad if the cups weren't so open on top. I don't think there is enough immediate projection for me. I think in comexim half cups I need to size up. The gore is overlapped at the top and the band fits closer to a 26 so I'm inclined to keep this one. The uplift and rounding is excellent, and it of course looks very lovely as we're used to with comexim.
Edit: Sadly, I will sell this as I'd rather use the money to spend toward on a taller bra with more immediate projection.
My measurements are 26" UB, 33" standing, and 34" leaning.
So I bought this bra in a batch with three 65HHs from Comexim, because I had heard that you should order one size up in Comexim half-cups. I will say, it measures more like a 65HH than a 65J, so I guess that makes sense--fortunately for me, I do fit the more open 65HHs!
So the color is this rich and lovely red, but I really appreciate that the straps are black. I like having dark straps because they draw less attention than colored straps, and my bra straps show a lot.
I really like the design of the half-cup. The seams don't scream out at you through clothing and ...the top edge of the cup isn't as abrupt as some other half-cups I've tried, meaning it doesn't really show through clothing either. I like that the design isn't crazy over the top, like my Debenhams red half-cup.
This doesn't put my breasts as up and out as other bras, but I like the gentle swell of boob that it produces. It would work well with a low-cut scoop neck or under higher necklines when I don't want my boobs to be the center of attention.
I like that it's a red and black bra but it's more sophisticated than sexy. The Queen of Hearts bra made me feel dangerous, but this feels like a good working bra.
The cups are definitely wider than Comexim plunges, which was disconcerting at first, but they're still narrower than most bras in this size range and still totally wearable. This does mean that the straps are set a little wider than normal, but they're not terribly irritating and I can totally wear the bra all day, which is all that matters.
Really comfortable and flattering bra. I'm glad I got it. Read more 184 more words
I purchase this bra from a fellow community member. I saw: "60F Comexim Burgundy Half Cup," and immediately wrote. Gimme, Gimme, Gimme! I've been drooling over this model since I saw it and figured I might be able to get away with a 28:6 since my @Comexim , plunge bra fit in the same size. I purchased and received it within several days, first time I've ever had a transaction happen that quickly! I tore into the package and pulled out the bra....my immediate thoughts were: "There can not be this huge if a discrepancy in the sizing from Comexim...even if this is a half ...cup instead of a plunge." Then I looked at the tag....oh...it says 30F not 60F/28F. That explains the difference. I went back to the users page and looked up their data for the bra where there was a picture of the tag saying "30F," not 60F. It was listed as 60F, not 30/65F, but there was the picture that I did not look at before ordering. So I can't be upset. I'm getting it worked on to be fixed right now. So, sometime in the future you will see this bra labeled as 30/65F instead of the 60F it was originally tagged. Even though I was convinced it wouldn't fit by eye, I decide that I might as well try it on since I purchased it. That's where I was totally surprised! Some how, this 30F technically fit. I have to say technically because it DID NOT FIT. At first I put it on the third hook, just because I always hook the bra on the hook that I naturally close it on when first trying on a bra. I needed to loosen the straps a bit. But there it was. On my body, no gapes, it FIT me. This was quite astounding to me even though I previously knew that the cup depth was 7.5". Decided to wear it to work on one of my computers days instead if one of my laborious days. I only stayed at work for five hours that day, but that was still enough time for me to decipher the fit of the bra. It doesn't fit, so I will be selling it if it doesn't fit any of my nieces either. I have three nieces and I know it won't fit one of them because she wears like a 32/30F and VS has her in 36DD, she wears 36D from like Wal-Mart. Yes. I'm on a mission, lol. The quality is pretty darn good per the norm for @Comexim . I have the same opinion on the fabrics of this bra as I do with my other Comexim bra. They're not very soft or supple and I could see the foam on the inside of the cup being irritating to those with sensitive skin. I really don't understand why (a lot of) brands keep using the really nice soft and smooth fabrics on the outside of the bra but then leave the inside of the bra raw. I wish they would just line the foam with something more comfortable. The fabrics were not uncomfortable for me, nor did they chafe or feel offensive. There was not much stretch in the fabrics either and the bra was very stable on my body. Even though I decided to use the middle hook instead of the tightest hook when I wore the bra to work. This half cup bra was full coverage on me. Nothing like the stock photos would suggest. It was also VERY shallow compared to my other Comexim bra; take note that my other Comexim bra is a plunge style. Due to the bra being so shallow, it felt like my boobs were being compressed into my chest. The top of the cup was only a bit deeper than the bottom/middle of the cup. I'm used to half cup bras getting significantly deeper at the top of the cup, so this bra could be very good for shallow women with softer breast tissue. The side of the cup started rubbing against my arm pretty bad come the end of the night. This is one of the main reasons I won't wear this bra. I still think this bra could work for me in a 28 band, perhaps a 28F/E, depending of course. Hopefully it won't be as full coverage in a size more appropriate for me. I want to say that these wires are very wide. They ARE very wide on me; sitting a good inch plus behind my breast root. I did some follow up research on how very wide these wires were because (A) It's a Comexim bra and (B) I needed to know if this was normal for the half cup in this size. No. It's not normal, not even for other bras of this same model. I suppose that this bra is the elephant in the room. According to the measurement table for The Burgundy Half Cup this 30F has the same cup width as a 30/65H. Perhaps the original owner (not the person I bought from) asked for wider wires? Or this one could be a fake? Who knows. I know that it is FREAKING WIDE! 5.5" when measured at the top of the wires, inside seam to inside seam, 5.25" when measured at the middle of the cup; again inside seam to inside seam. Because this bra was so wide, my breasts kept trying to migrate under my arms to fill up the cup. This was exacerbated by the shallowness of the cup squishing my breasts to my chest wall. I was constantly feeling the need to pull my boobs back into the cups. I think if I had put a little push up pad behind my breast root, then that could've stopped the migration. This is the other reason why I will not ever wear this bra. The wires are also really soft and flexible. I like this about Comexim bras, but there are pro's and con's that come with softer wires. The gore would not lay flat because of these soft wires. I typically do not have a problem with gore's tacking or laying flat on my sternum. Even if they are sitting on breast tissue they still pay flat because I am fairly shallow there. Instead the gore sat diagonally on my body. The wire on my right side (smaller breast) sat against my sternum while the wire on my left side (larger side) sat on breast tissue. Since the wires were soft and not being forced to sit flat, this was not uncomfortable and I did not notice until I was taking the pictures for BtB. Look at my pictures for a visual explanation. The straps were not as wide as I imagine they could've been for a 30F. They sat at the edge of my comfort zone for strap width and I did not feel the need to pull them in on my shoulders. Of course, they're wider than I would prefer and I'm sure wider than most women in my size range would prefer. But they were OK. Not really big on comfort or softness. They weren't uncomfortable or scratchy. They were not thin nor did they dig in. The straps are practical and get the job done. Not much else one could ask for besides a more luxe feel. If I'm recalling correctly, they are fully adjustable. The band was very stretchy feeling. Though this could be attributed to being a used bra. I easily stretched it to 30", but the very soft wires began to warp at about 28". All in all, I still really like the bra despite it's minor short comings. Perhaps this was a bra ordered with customizations that I don't know about or maybe just an odd one. At any rate, I look forward to trying it again in my size. I hope the cups will be less full coverage and give me this oomph, this "cakes on a plate" sort of cleavage that people keep talking about! At least to the extent that me boobs will allow. Let me know what you think and if you have any insight or recommendations.
So happy to find a better fit in this style! Previously had (well, still have, but it's listed for sale now) a "32E"-tagged Burgundy and it was quad city - the 70G is much better. It's not as shallow as some of the newer Comexim 3HC's, but doesn't match the deeper and better fitting projection of my Comexim Beauty 70F or Ewa Michalak CHP's in 65F. Although the slight shallowness means my boobs push it out of my IMF and down my chest wall a bit throughout the day, and full swoop & scoop results in a touch of quadding, it's not so bad for short-term or bedroom-focused wear, so it's a keeper for now.
Really love the style, but it's a little too wide and shallow on the larger side. Tried a 60H but it was just a little too tall and open; might have to get my hands on a 55HH sometime. Or try a 55HH/60H with straps moved in.
Update: 55HH mostly fits. I would need to add cookie pockets for my smaller side. Ideally, I think a slightly deeper 55H would be best, but an unaltered 55H/60G isn't that bad. 55HH with reduced gore and straps moved in is too shallow, and I don't like the halfcup/plunge hybrid look.
I ordered this Burgundy from Breakout Bras and it shipped with the tag reading only 32E, no EU sizing listed. The bra is gorgeous - the burgundy material has just enough lustre to not be in-your-face reflective red (I feel that with the cleavage I get, a more vibrant fabric would have been more "in your face" than I was looking for personally), but not to be matte and boring. The fabric is a bit scratchier for me compared to the Sonia, even after washing a few times - I can wear it all day, but I'm happier to take it off than I am for the Sonia. ...For my narrow-rooted, wide-set, FOB breasts, it's either a bit smaller in the cup or a bit more closed in at the top compared to the Sonia 3HC - I get some quadding on my larger side, whereas the Sonia 3HC in what I assume is the equivalent size (UK 32E = EU 70F?) does not give any quadding whatsoever. Like the Sonia, the Burgundy gives me amazing shape and cleavage, has beautiful trim and design, is narrow and immediately projected the way my narrow-root, FOB breasts need, and somehow the narrow gore still isn't a problem for my widely splayed breasts. Given a good fit in other Comexim 3HC styles in 70F, it's either a size or style mismatch for me. Read more 123 more words
This is a smidge large in the cup for me - it fits during my biggest days of the month, but I get some gaping during the rest of the time.
The fit feels a little off to me - I have a few Comexim Halfcups in 75L, and by comparison, this one feels SO much taller, and wider. The gore especially is throwing me off, I'm so used to overlapping gores from Comexim. Also, the wings come up really high, and the straps are wider set, both of which are making it a bit uncomfortable for my underarm area.
OTOH, the higher wings means a wider band, which ...is *fantastically* comfortable. I still get great lift and shape, and the bottom of the cup is nicely projected.
This isn't my favorite Comexim, looks wise (I think that's a big part of why I'm so lukewarm about it, lol), but it was on sale and so it was tough to pass up. The fabrics are very soft, the craftsmanship is impeccable as always. I think I'm just a little burnt out on the red/black combo in lingerie. Read more 79 more words
Edit: I tried a 32G of the gala version of this bra that works much better, although the band is on the larger size. The burgundy bra seemed to work in multiple sizes, but the cups were too small.
I think this fits, although both band and cup could be slightly larger. The 28 band is tight, but stretches more than the band of Comexim's Basic Plunge and is comfortable. It is nice to not have to wear on the 2nd hook after wearing the bra only once I do get a tiny bit of quad boobing under a t-shirt. The gore is too wide but doesn't bother me too much. I love the classy look of this bra. It looks good under clothing too. The fabric inside the cups isn't soft, so that might annoy when wearing it all day. My label says UK: 28F, US: 28G, but doesn't list an EU size.
The 34 band is much more comfortable than the 30 band, even though my ribcage is much smaller (27.5 comfortably tight). I'm having trouble with bras that have bands that are very short when unstretched. The cup is way too big. Weird, because my 30G cup is on the smaller side, and when I scoop and swoop is too small, but that may be because the wires are not wide enough. The gore of this bra is much better, so I guess this means I just need to start buying bras with wider cups. Curious how the US 34E would work for me, and if the wires would be wider than my 30G.
