    Used to fit

    I adore the toned-down colors and defined lines of this bra! No lace or frills on this beauty (the very unobtrusive bow between the cups doesn't count). The materials are sturdy, not luxurious (still comfortable, though), but that fits with the style of the bra. The bad is a true 32, not tight like my 70G - Comexim » Tropical Garden (191). Also, it comes up higher in the wings than the Tropical Garden., which is great since it covers a little more bulge that way. Cups are very nice and narrow as expected from Comexim, and the top curves in just enough to keep my boobs from escaping. Altogether what I want in a bra; I am in love!

    • Your review of the 70G basic is almost word-for-word what I would have written (I had to check and make sure it wasn't me!). It sounds like Free Time was better for you. How did you find the strap distance and projection around the gore in this compared to the Basic? Those are the same problems I'm having with it (I do love it overall though).

    • P.S. any alternative bra recommendations are welcome! Thank you :-)

    • Projection for the Free Time is decidedly better than the Basic, but that is partly due to the lower gore. It does run deeper at the gore; having pulled them both out and looked at them both while I'm wearing and off, I can tell there's more fabric. I don't get any quadding in this near the gore and the gore tacks just fine (it's not as hard a tack as I get in other brands, like Freya or Cleo). I like to contrast that with my Tropical Garden in the same size, which also has a lower gore than the Basic but tends to run a little shallower at the gore than the Free Time; I can get minor quadding in the Tropical Garden, but not enough to be a problem (it's still a bit deeper than the Basic).

      Straps are ever so slightly wider set in the Free Time, though. Out of the three I own, the Tropical Garden seems to come in the narrowest near the armpits.

      One issue with the Free Time that I have not experienced in any other of the Comexims I've tried so far: The ring that connects the straps to the band in the back is too large and does cause me occasional discomfort. My skin is obnoxiously sensitive, though.

      My Free Time does run stretchier in the band than the Basic, so if you are borderline to loose in the Basic, I would size down to a 65H in the Free Time.

      The Basic is still my best thin t-shirt bra because the fabric and seams are smoother than on the overlay lace style Comexims.

      My only current recommendation other than the Comexims I own is the 32E Cleo Lily (possibly the 32F if you can tolerate a slightly wider wire, which die to ribcage issues I cannot). Projection is somewhat deeper, the straps are set slightly lower by the arms and narrower, and for some reason it's just more comfortable for daily wear. Gore is higher, though, if that causes any trouble for you.

    • Thank you for your detailed reply, that was so helpful!

      Hmm, okay I want the color and no-show of the Basic, with the strap narrowness of the Tropical Garden, with the center projection of the Freetime. Kind of makes me want to custom order a Basic with straps moved in and lower gore, but I'm not sure a low gore would support the weight enough. I'll keep wearing the one I have and see how it wears.

      I've been looking @ Cleo Lily a lot, considered buying a few times, but I am wary because looking at it again, the way the sides swoop up into the strap right by the underarm reminds me of the Panache Jasmine and Envy that I have. I haven't been happy with the shape of those - they've ended up too splayed and down-and-out for me, with the straps carrying a lot of weight and chafing. I think my breasts are closer together and heavier than those allow. Have you ever tried either of those on?

    • I haven't tried either the Envy or the Jasmine, though I have been curious about them. I don't know what the structure or materials of those bras are, but the Lily has a fairly stiff mesh that sort of forces me to the front (without being pointy, since I have the projection that it requires). Something in my head says either Jasmine or Envy has stretch lace, which if it's anything like the material on the Andorra I tried, wouldn't work for me.

    • So the strap distance on the Lilly really doesn't bother you? IDK why it looks wide to me, maybe the balconnette cut?

      To answer Panache Q, they both do. Jasmine is single layer fabric all over, including stretch lace on top. Envy is double layer fabric all over, including the stretch lace portion. A greater % of the Envy cup is stretch lace, but it's much, much stronger than that on Jasmine (and Andorra, I'm told), thus I actually was able to size down a cup and get a perfect fit in Envy (my complaint about it being "down and out" was that its perfect fit only lasts 2-3 wears, then must be washed to restore it's support).
