I got this bra of r/braswap to test a theory I had on Comexim. I have tried a decent amount of Comexim bras, in an array of sizes. I've found 65G sometimes works, but it's a fine border between fitting and too small at least in a lot of the styles I have tried, so I've started getting 65H with reduced cups which works pretty well. However, most of my best fits in Comexim have come from the bras that have some sort of trim along the cup edge and I had yet to try one without trim in a cup volume that worked well. ... I decided that I should experiment with an untrimmed style in the 65G or an equivalent sister size and see how that would work for me. I found this 60H Giselle for a good price and decided to give it a shot.
The Giselle arrived today, and somehow I had totally forgot I was expecting it (I think I'm too eagerly awaiting my Anna Pardal from Sophisticated Pair which should be here any day now). Normally I rush to try on a bra, but this time I logged into my Bratabase and r/braswap accounts because I couldn't remember anything about buying this, after the minute it took to do that I then rushed to try it on, honestly not having high hopes. I try it on and other than needing to wear it with an extender (I expected this as 28/60 bands are usually too small for me), it is perfect. There is no gaping whatsoever and I'm not quadding out of it or even having slight bubbling. Before trying this bra I thought I was going to have to make sure to stick with Comexims that have trim or their 3 part 2 seam half cups.
The only down side to this particular bra is that the lace is visible under thin shirts, but it fits great and is comfortable. It's also cold where I live so I'm usually wearing a hoodie this time of year anyhow.
