This bra is absolutely beautiful! It is basically perfect for me on the smallest hook but the band is too big on the first hook. The fabric is silky and high quality and the design makes me feel like a bride!
I just received my Eva, and it's cut differently from the one in the Comexim photo. Mine is a three-piece cup, whereas bra in the photo has a single vertical seam. I am glad I received the kind I did because it's cut like their padded plunge bras. All of the measurements run virtually the same, and the wires feel the same. The band is a little stretchier though not by a lot. Eve will feel great to wear in the Summer. It's not their most sumptuous style, but it has great utility, and the eyelet fabric is pretty IMO. I ordered my normal Comexim size FYI and ...it fits like normal.
Here are some shape characteristics I see in my size of the bra:
- good projection at the bottom, better than in their padded plunges
- cut somewhat shallow at the apex, gives me a more rounded silhouette than many unlined bras I've tried
- somewhat closed on top, but the cup is fairly tall anyways so this wasn't an issue for me
- the cup fabric is strong, not stretchy, and the seams are substantial (not itchy though) Read more 78 more words
I asked for this bra to have a 3cm tall gore but the most Comexim will reduce the gore is 2cm which is still too tall for me. I also asked for more space at the wire but the bra is over all too small so I can't tell if it has more space. I thought the unlined bras usually ran bigger then the padded ones. I also order 65HH - Comexim » Pearl Flower Mint Plunge Bra (390) and the cups are much bigger. The wires are also very narrow for this size, too narrow for me. I really wanted a simple white bra, so I am annoyed that this is too small.
This was my, "Hmm, maybe Comexim can make me a black unpadded full cup bra" on-a-whim purchase. I never actually know if they read the notes when I place an order on their website, but so far, they haven't done me wrong. Much to my surprise, they actually came through and made me a custom black Eve bra, just like I requested! (I was half-expecting it to be another white bra, which would have been fine.) So, the pros: the fit is lovely and supportive, and the design on the top of the cup, while slightly different from the regular white Eve, is nicely understated. The band fits a ...bit tighter than the white version; what it is about black bras that make them fit tighter? Something in the dye? The cons: the straps, URGH! I love the stretchy, comfy straps on my white Eves and Emilys, but this black one came with the same type they use for their plunge styles. They feel itchy and uncomfortable to me. They must not have the stretchy style straps in black, which it disappointing. Overall, I'm very pleased with my black Eve, except for the straps. So if you decide to order one from Comexim and hate their regular straps like I do, just be prepared. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> I'd be curious if they would make other colors too. Might be worth looking into! Read more 126 more words
I ordered this in the same size as my UK size(28GG). It is my first try with an unlined Comexim and it is a fail. I have short roots, touching and center full breasts and I need a lot of immediate projection. It is a full cup bra and I should have known that would be a problem for me. The cup is tall at 7 3/4 inches and I cannot fill the top. The band is very stretchy . Fastening it in the loosest hook feels a little loose. I can fasten it comfortably in the innermost hook. If I was to ...order this again, I would go with a 55. The straps are also very stretchy.
This is a very light weight bra and I think it would be a dream to wear in the hot summer months.
I requested narrowed gore, overlapping wires and lowered gore by 1cm. Those alteration appear to have been done . The gore fit, while not perfect , is one of the better fits I've had. Gore tacks softly.
I do not have wrinkling in the side of the cup under the arms which I have in every bra I've ever tried , other than one Anna Pardal plunge.
Even though the depth is only 10.25 and I normally need 11" in a UK sized bra, somehow in these Polish bras, I don't seem to need as much depth. Wires are 5 5/8 " so really not any narrower than my Cleo bras.
I will be listing this bra. I really think someone who normally wears a 30/65 would be fine in this bra because of how stretchy he band is.
This is an extremely comfortable, Comexim creation that is no longer available.
Surprisingly, this 75HH fits better than the 65HH "custom" Eve I ordered one year ago. But, my center-full, close set, somewhat narrow breasts are unhappy with the still too-narrow wire and still too-wide gore.
Unlike my custom Eve, this 75HH is not too tall. For me, this is a shock. I'm very short-waisted, and all too often experience an open field in the top of Comexim cups. This 75HH is two cup sizes larger than the 65HH custom order and has a "raised gore" alteration. Why the 75HH fits better than the 65HH in the top of the cup will remain a mystery. If you look at the measurements for 65HH Eve, "something strange" happened to my mutant 65HH. http://bra.pe/S612/
Many thanks to mandapandarawks for graciously giving her comfortable, discontinued Eve away!!
I don't understand why the heck this bra doesn't fit. It's weird, because the measurements all seem right, but when I wear it, my boobs are just... saggy. It feels like the band is too stretchy, but the stretched measurement is right on 32 inches. I can't figure it out. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> I have two other Eves, both 75HH, and they seem to fit a little better than this one, despite having a band one size too large. I know they are phasing out this particular style, so I think that might be the issue? The straps are weird and really stretchy and feel ...flimsy. There are also only two clasps instead of three for some reason; I have two other Eve bras, and they both have 3 hooks. (I can't remember if I ordered them that way, though, so it might be my fault for not asking for that alteration) This bra just seems like a fluke for me. It SHOULD fit, but it doesn't. I don't feel supported at all, even though the band is the right size and the gore tacks. It's probably because my tissue is so soft, or something. I've gotta stop ordering the bras they are trying to phase out, hahah! I ordered this bra with a raised gore and narrowed straps.
I've been having a lot of success with the "full cup" unpadded Comexims, especially with the alterations I always request. (narrowed straps and raised gore) The best part of the unpadded Comexims, in my opinion, are the comfortable straps. The plunge styles have these itchy straps that I really don't like; I find myself always messing with them, trying to move them around and pull them away from my skin. Anyways, I love my Eve bras. I've got three of them: two in the standard white, and one that I, on a whim, asked for black, and they actually sent me one! The white ones fit me the best. I wish they had more colors and designs in the full cup/unpadded style, but I'll take what I can get. They are very comfortable and supportive.
Very short, projected, slightly narrow, even, close set breasts.....
My breasts have been....maddening to fit. Jaimie at Bra Obsessed recommended the Eve full cup for my shorties, and sent Anna at Comexim the width (5.6") and depth (10.5") I required. Comexim skillfully crafted an Eve with those measurements: INCREDIBLE customer service.
"Soft" is the first word that comes to mind when I wear Eve. The material is similar to the fabric used in the Ivonne balcony. It drapes well and simultaneously supports. Eve also has the most stretchy Comexim straps I've experienced, to date. Although they are delightfully comfortable, I would happily embrace more rigid straps. That, however, would ...compromise the aesthetic of this bra. Again, I strongly prefer Comexim's choice of materials over Panache, Cleo, Freya, and Curvy Kate. If you have sensitive skin and/or sensory issues with the aforementioned brands, Comexim unlined bras may be a welcome relief to your skin and mind. Eve is supremely comfortable.
For some reason, I feel like a princess in this bra. The embroidery dances across the fabric in a simply elegant manner. It is perfect for me who appreciates minimalistic designs. And although my wardrobe is very simple, I happily add more interest in my "bradrobe."
Cup height is always a challenge for me. In this bra, moving the apex 1 cm lower or reducing the cup height may improve the fit significantly. That little shift will increase lift and eliminate the wrinkles in the top of the cup. I don't know yet if I am courageous enough to complete this alteration myself. But, it looks more simple than removing 1/3 of my 65K Eris plunge. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" /> After watching 2hours of bra making videos, lowering the strap would be helpful. Lowering the strap two inches forces the pattern maker to reduce the cup height accordingly. This would liberate my armpits and eliminate the wrinkles.
The overlapping gore alteration is critical to my comfort. Additionally, I now understand I require the narrowed gore. My right breast, that often looks dwarfed compared to the left, is more center-full. Without a narrowed and overlapped gore, the wire tethers the right breast. Not only does this cause a burning sensation, but it also creates false asymmetry. It is entirely possible my breasts sit 1/4" off-center, too. Strange.
My next Eve (there will be another Eve https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> ) will have narrowed gore, overlapping gore (preferably the right cup wire is placed furthest from the body during the alteration), and straps lowered 1.5"-2".
Comexim unlined receive enthusiastic recommendations from me! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> Read more 329 more words
