I have been wearing 30FF in UK sizes, so I had this made in 65HH 3HC with alterations: Lower gore, overlapping gore, straps moved in '2-3 cm', and with cookie pockets for asymmetry. I love the looks of this bra for a really nice looking everyday bra. It's accented by gold hardware and a gore 'jewel' and has a nice dark grey and black pattern that makes it unique and a bit more special than a plain black bra. Plus it matches the dark grey and black undies I already have (not the 'matching set')... bonus.
For fit: I ordered this bra (originally a plunge) in a 3HC ... in hopes that the shorter cup would fit me better than the tall plunge I previously tried. The shorter cups do work better for my short roots compared to the plunge cut. I find that the overlapping gore is very narrow, but I have no way of confirming if it was lowered (reduced in height). When I do a fresh scoop and swoop I get some pretty noticable quadding, the gore is no where near tacked (soft wires + boobs being squished in), and it sits on breast tissue. I tried to reverse S&S, but then there's just not enough room for everything in the cups. A warning to those that are fuller on top to watch that black trim in case it cuts in. The cups are shallow for me at 9.0", and I'm not sure if that is because of the alterations or just because Comexim is just too shallow for me in general. They do round things out nicely, but the shallowness (or smallness?) or the bra holds the breast closer to the body than EMs chp. The wires follow my IMF fairly well (a touch wide for me), and I haven't noticed them moving throughout the day. An odd thing happens during the day though...I notice that my boobs settle in somehow and the quadding is less noticeable later in the day. I'm not sure what is going on there, except to say that I have soft tissue that squishes and molds easily. This soft tissue of mine makes getting a good fit (and discerning a good fit) very challenging. The band feels excellent to me - 3x4 sets of hooks, and I find that it fits exactly how I expected it to (I know there are some variations with bands with Comexim, but no problems here).
Comfort: This bra is unbelievably comfortable! Even though it's not a good technical fit, I love it. My boobs feel loved in this bra, and they are also contained with some soft cleavage on top. The material and the bra itself are so soft. There are no 'pressure areas' from hard wires or a too tight band. Everything just feels lovely right away - no breaking in necessary. I will never put those cookie pockets to use with the shallowness of this bra, but if I did, I have a feeling they'd work great. I do prefer how Comexim constructs their cookie pockets - the pockets overlap instead of how EM does theirs with just a little cup on the bottom to hold the cookie. I'll add more pictures of the bra soon.
Overall I'm very pleased with the quality and comfort of this bra. The fit issues are really my own fault, as I am still sorting out what fit/size will work best for me.
