My favorite padded bra! (Currently the only one I have that fits really well!) I LOVE the way the band is, with the three straps along each side of the hook panels, if that makes any sense. (see pics) I think that's part of the reason it fits me so well. It's like the added elastics give it a bit more give than a regular bra band does. Plus, it's so gorgeous with the black stripes and the little tassel in the middle! This is one of my best fitting bras ever. I love it!
Bought from Breakout Bras, so the tag is in UK sizing and reads 28FF.
This is a great bra for my narrow/tall roots, even, center full, projected boobs. The wires sit right in my IMF with no extra space even on the sides. The only fit issue I've noticed so far is a tiny bit of quadding when I inhale when I'm on the biggest-boob part of my cycle.
It gives a pointier shape than my Belle De Nuit and Celebration Comexim plunges, but not excessively so. The striped fabric is smooth under shirts as well - the only times this bra shows is when I'm wearing a light colored thin shirt, but I wouldn't expect any black or colored bra to be invisible under those. The unusual design on the back - the two strips of elastic instead of extending the wings all the way to the clasp is a nice, sexy touch, but it probably isn't great if you're worried about back fat. Overall, it is a beautiful, high-quality bra.
I am adding this bra for data/informational purposes only. This Bra is not owned by me at the time of addition to the database.
Customizations requested: Wires completely overlapped/crossed at center; straps moved in 3cm; reduced cup height by 2cm; lower center gore height by 2cm (need extra deep plunge); Deeper at the wire by 1cm; add'l set of eye loops)
This one was such a disappointment for me, all around. Arrived with Broken seam on eye loop section, so definite quality control issues. It is padded. I honestly thought it was an unlined sheer bra. It did not arrive with open gateway band. While I assume ...due to the lack of space between straps and hook/loops in a 28/60 band, but hey, that open gateway was one of the reasons I ordered it, so it would have been nice to know that one of the key features was being omitted. One wire is 5.75” wire and the other is 6”. Serously they used two different size wires! I just don’t even know what to say about that one……..
The gore is 2.5” which is nice. With low gore, wires are not crossed, but there really isn’t much space to do this, and if crossed I don’t think it would have helped.
The band measured 21.5” and stretched to 27.5” and came with the 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops like I requested. I liked this as I could comfortably fasten it on the loosest hooks.
Cup Depth as measured by: 1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance. This measurement is: 13”
2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance. This measurement is: 15”
I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.
Compared to the other padded plunges I have, this one is deeper altogether, so I am confident they did do the deeper at the wire like requested. This one is ½-1” deeper than my other Comexim 60Ps. So, deeper at the wire made it deep both at the base for more immediate projection and also at the apex for more depth overall. Even with this, it was still not enough to accommodate my breasts, and I had to admit sizing up in the cup was ultimately needed. Read more 384 more words
Band is firm, like most black bras are. I can wear it without an extender fine but I am aware of the band. It is my only non altered Comexim. The cups on this one are narrower than my two customs, but only slightly. The elastic on the band is wrapped in the tulle making it very soft.
