Sorry for taking so long to review this. I ended up having to switch a therpay appointment with someone last minute for yesterday, which meant working on projects last minute and I just ended up managing my time poorly. Dx
I LOVE this bra. I could definitely use a 65G, but it's really comfortable regardless (goodbye VS bras). Even with cups just slightly small, this is the only bra besides my VS 32DD that I forget I'm wearing.
So, that makes this my only supportive bra that I forget I'm wearing.
In all honesty, for support and comfort's sake, I'd be willing to fill my drawer with the same bra.
I'm unsure ... of what other models are similar, but I need them all. xD
The straps adjust long enough for me, cup separation, like the Coco, is on point (touching wires), the gore tacks even though the cups are somewhat too small; there's more room on top (8") than bottom (7.5"), making the bottoms wrinkle and stretch, and my boobs quad, but not enough to be a problem or very noticeable at all. It doesn't show through shirts or affect comfort, as a matter of fact, the thing I'm most concerned about is hurting the bra because when fully scooped, my boobs push the lace out further than the padded part. Again, not noticeable, doesn't affect comfort, but I hope it will be ok for the bra. In any case, I will probably order a 65G at some point if this bra is still available when I have more money. It's just too gorgeous, and I love the light padding.
Speaking of which, the padding: I added this to my Comexim Basic 60HH review, but I think it's important to add to all my reviews from now on.
I know padding type is something I look for in reviews, because I'm not very interested in heavy, thick, or light but stiff moulding.
I hate moulding. As I mentioned to a fitter who gave me an epically round, moulded Chantelle: The top of my boobs don't look like that and it just looks really awkward to have flat space with a round bubble randomly jutting out(cup was covering my boob and had too much upper depth and height). Literally makes me look like a flat line pretending I have boobs, like a "b". Not like a pushup, just like bubble cups sitting on my chest.
These cups look great on women with upper fullness and projection, but they look really awkward on my flatter upper chest.
It's much more pleasant for me to see a gradual sloping out. My natural boobs slope out gradually, and a decent padded bra with shorter cups and good lift works best, and looks much more appropriate with my body.
I can make do with the Deco Vibe and Charm, but they're also not too high for me.
So, these cups are very lightly padded like Freya longlines, and "flimsy", which sounds like a negative word(for some reason?) but is very good in this case.
The cup seems to be a true half cup/plunge, and lightly lined, so it retains some of your natural sloping/shape.
The padding on the Emanuelle is much softer and a tiny bit thinner than the Basic.
Personally, I don't know if a higher gore would work better for me, or just the G. I do experience a tiny amount of falling into the center, or at least a sensation that I will.
I think to be safe, I might order a higher gore on some of my next Comexims, but for this I'll just see if the larger cups work (at some point! ) I have somewhat softer tissue, so if you do too, you may want to consider ordering a higher gore.
I was thinking, I know there's already a lot of measurements, but maybe there could be a "bottom cup depth" and "top cup depth" in the future.
For bras where you're only measuring deepest depth, if they're padded like this, I can see them working for softer tissue like my own maybe, but not so much firmer, very FoB boobs. Hopefully these things will be stated in reviews, but it's a little easier to tell if a cup is FoB, even, or FoT, and to what extent, from measurements.
I can push my tissue around, so a FoT >padded< cup with slightly more depth isn't much of an issue for me(a lot of depth & height definitely is), but I can see it being more an issue for firmer tissue that can't be as easily manipulated.
Shape is very nice and uplifted. The cups are up front and centered, but don't make all side tissue disappear and look awkward like some Fantasie/side support bras I've tried. Rounded, upifted, great cleavage.
Wires are narrow, band is perfectly snug; not too tight, not loose, and the material used makes it undetectable when wearing (at least for me). I'm starting to dislike the strong elastic feeling of my Deco Vibe, and I had the same feeling with Fantasie Evie Plunge. They're not too tight, it just feels like there's nothing covering the elastic and that the ridges are hurting my skin. I'm a sucker for comfy fabrics, and this outweighs VS Body bra fabric. By a long shot. I thought those were like clouds, but whatever is on the cups and band in this is amazing.
As I said previously, Comexim and Cleo are my new go-to bras. Though I really would rather just buy Comexim from this point on.
The detailing on this is just beautiful. I'd been eyeing the Emanuelle on Comexim.pl, but didn't order myself one because I didn't realize just how pretty it was. I also had no idea how nice it would be because up until now, I've just had the unpadded Comexim (also heaven sent). I knew the quality was great with that, but didn't know what to expect in padded bras.
Anyway, I would recommend this for anyone who needs narrow wires, has sensitive skin, possibly high set or low set breasts with tall, shallow roots, needs some projection, closer set boobs naturally or when lifted, and has either smaller, softer, FoT, slightly FoB, or even breasts (I can't speak for larger), or firm, FoT or almost even-but fuller on top, breasts. And anyone who wants amazing uplift.
