So I have the Geisha in 55J that was supposed to have a lowered gore, straps moved in, and reduced cups. I do not think the straps have been moved in one the one I received and I got one with 3x3 hooks (which is typically custom) instead of the typical 2x3. Unfortunately, this bra is too big for me, and I won't be able to keep it. The straps not being moved in creates about an inch of extra fabric at the top of the bra. In addition, scaling for 55 bands makes them slightly narrower and deeper than the Comexim Vivien I have in 60HH (with ... the same alterations). I think Geisha in a 55HH would fit me well. The band on this one does run tight. It's actually longer than the other 55 bands I got, but has much less stretch. The lace pattern carries around the entire bra (which is gorgeous) but probably contributes to this problem. I would say this 55J definitely is closer to a 26G.5.
I'm so sad this doesn't fit because it's truly a gorgeous bra. The cherry blossom lace pattern is classic, sexy, and luxurious. The foam cut and sew cups are typically comfortable and the bows on the sides and middle are cute finishing touches. I would love to own this bra in a 55HH. I'll probably order it again. It is definitely more projected than the Basic in the same size.
I'll get a real blog post about this up at some point, but for now here are my ramblings

Comexim Geisha plunge set size 55J which equates UK 26GG and EM PL 55H + M knickers which equates UK 8/10. The following 3 photos feature my custom made bra in a 55 band featuring reduced cups. This is an exquisitely constructed bra with the finest attention to detail. This stunning style is comprised of a lightly padded plunge cut in the lower cup style. The wires are the narrowest that I have ever encountered whilst the cups are deep and feel completely weightless regardless of the light padding. This style features a beige knitted cotton fabric lining the interior of the cups, whilst the exterior is covered ... in a delicate black lace overlay featuring pale pink embroidery and a floral pattern whilst the upper edges of the cups are covered in black lace. The detailing is flat and not visible beneath a blouse. The straps are fully adjustable and the band features 2 hooks.
I should clarify that Comexim do not currently have size labels available for this custom size. Therefore Anna, the company owner, always uses a size tag printed for another order and carefully hand prints the "55J" size on the tag. I can confirm that all of my orders in size 55J are consistently presented in this manner. I am enormously pleased to find a company whom is willing to provide 55 bands upon request!
The cup width measures 13cm from tip to tip of the underwire. The cup depth measures 23cm inside of the cup, from each end of the underwire across the deepest line of the cup. I have measured the band as follows. Unstretched in a resting position from clasp to clasp measures exactly 48cm. Fully stretched to the maximum length from clasp to clasp measures exactly 66cm. It would be ideal for you to compare these measurements against one of your newer best fitting bras, as this will be the best method in determining if this will be a good fit for you.

I love this bra so much. The band is comfy on basically all of the hooks depending on how snug I want it a particular day, although it's quite firm. It doesn't have much stretch at all, so sometimes the bottom right-side elastic of the band will dig into me by the end of the day, but it's not bad enough that it makes me chafe or bleed. The wires are a perfect width for me, and the cups are a perfect depth and height (thanks to the lowered cup alteration). The gore soft tacks on me, which I'm not concerned with because it doesn't affect how supported ... I feel in this bra. The straps are a good width/placement on me (they may have been moved in, but the previous owner can't remember for sure). The straps are also fully removable, which I don't think I've seen in a Comexim bra before, so that might've been a requested alteration as well. The design of this bra is also lovely, with the black mesh overlay over the beige base (nude for me) and the oriental-inspired flowers. It gives me a great shape and the cups and gore are low enough that it doesn't show even under the lowest v-neck tops and dresses.

Lowered cup height, possibly lowered gore and moved in straps

This bra was too small for me all over. I normally wear 30FF - 30:8 size in Freya , Cleo
The cups were about one cup too small, the gore would not tack for about 0.5cm, if I pressed it towards me I'd get spilling on the middle.
I could barely close the band around me, but I cannot breathe once I'm in it.
I wanted to try Comexim, but nobody was selling on my normal Comexim size 60HH but I found this sister size available so I went for it.
By the end of the day, the wires hurt because they were too narrow for me. I find that Ewa Michalak bras have the right cup width for me (padded 65G/30:9 for non padded 65FF/30:8)
I got a 60HH - Comexim » Paradise Bra (211) which fits me much better.
At the end, I gave this bra to a friend of mine.
