This is currently my favorite bra. It's pretty without being too feminine, and the construction is high quality. The band stretches in a way that it fits like a glove.
I wasn't sure what size to order, so I took a gamble on 75F. The cups are about 1/4 to 1/2 size too big, depending on the time of the month. I think sizing down would make them too small. I went with 75 instead of a 70 band because reviews said that black bands run small and the 75 measurements seemed closer to my size. The band fits perfectly; hopefully it won't stretch too quickly because I ...love it as is. It is the only bra I've worn that doesn't budge once it's in place.
The gore is super narrow, almost overlapping. And narrow cups, yay! Next time I order a Comexim plunge I may get reduced cup height as these are a little tall on me. They want more apex projection than I have. Combined with being a tad large in the cups, I get some gapping, but it's not a dealbreaker. The shape is lifted and centered (and I think it would be even better with a perfectly-fitting cup).
The chevron fabric covers the diagonal seam that's so pronounced on some Comexim plunges, so I think this makes it more discreet under clothing. Seams still show a little under tight tops. Read more 125 more words
Chevron in 60P I am adding this bra for data/informational purposes only. This Bra is not owned by me at the time of addition to the database.
Chevron is a padded plunge bra, in a wonderful zig zag multi colored pattern on the lower half of the cups and black on the top. The colors are Blues, Pinks, and Purples. The padding is the standard light foam lining without additional/removable padding. This was my third attempt at Chevron. I ordered it this time in 60P, but also tried it in 65M and 65N, reviewed separately. I love this pattern and the color scheme. The only thing that would have made ...the colors better would have been if it had greens instead of pinks, but the colors do look great together as it is.
The band measures 21.5” to a 30” max stretch. I asked for an extra set of eyes, so my band has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eyes. The 60P is 1” shorter than my 65M & 65N which measured 22.5” to a max 31” & 32”. This shows that the extra row of eyes add for a tighter band and do not lengthen the band, allowing for an extended life of the band as well as an option for those who are between band sizes and need that extra row to get a snug fit when sizing down is too tight.
Cup Depth as measured by: 1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance. This measurement is: 12”
2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance. This measurement is: 14.5”
I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.
The cup height is 9”, which was 1/2” taller than my 65N, and 1” taller than my 65M. Wires were 5.875” wide compared to the 65M at 5.75” and oddly the 65N at 6.25”. The center gore sat at 4.15” tall with wires touching but not crossed. This was strange since to date I think all my Comexim bras had crossed wires. The 65M had a center gore height of 3.5” and the 65N was 3.25” tall.
I ordered this 60P with the straps moved in 2cm. This placed them at 10.5” apart, while my 65N is 11” apart.
As for fit at the time it was received, the band was great on the loosest setting which is nice. The straps were at an almost perfect placement. The center gore sat 2 fingers off my sternum, & the cups fit very full with minor quad boob. If I force the gore to tack, I got more quadding obviously.
I also ordered the panties in a Small, which measures 56cm to a max of 95cm. Comexim’s size chart shows their small to be for 85-93cm hips, so these are true to size. The bum side is sheer tulle, which I don’t like as much. I’d prefer solid black or the chevron pattern to match the color scheme of the bra. They were quite comfortable though, and my hubby liked the way they look, so it’s a win.
This bra is so cute! The fabric is soft and smooth. It has little pink bows on the straps and at the gore. It's such a unique pattern; I just love it! Sadly, it didn't fit me. It was purchased directly through Comexim so there are no tags. It's a fun, gorgeous bra!
I bought this bra slightly used so I don't know how much the band may have stretched initially, but I wear it comfortably on the 1st or 2nd of the 4 rows of hooks. It is not as brightly colored as pictured, but I doubt that it has faded; rather I think the stock photos aren't quite accurate. It's still really cute. Except for the dark color, it is invisible under clothing. The wings and outside cup height are wonderfully low and the straps aren't set to cut my arms off. Also, the straps are nice and skinny. The cups JUST fit. Love it.
