I got this bra about 2 months ago, as a birthday present to myself, lol, but have not gotten around to reviewing it. Which is good b/c I have multi-purposes for it now. Spoiler: I actually wear this bra to go JOGGING - not training for a marathon or anything, but just light jogging. And it keeps the girls in place, as any well-fitting sports bra does. Are these bras versatile, or what?
I first saw this bra from u/Sonya's profile pic and I knew that I had to have it! But then I learned that it's probably not the best colour for my skin tone, as it ...has WARM tones, and my skin is cool-toned, with lots of pink. So, if you're an Autumn (https://www.colormebeautiful.com/seasons/findyourseason.html), this would be a great colour for you - but it's also one of those "bridesmaid dress" colours - it doesn't look terrible on anyone. It does have a lot of warm tones, and it does evoke feelings of crisp autumn nights w/warm hot chocolate. The inside lining and the straps are dark brown, and there is an attractive middle ribbon with two shades of brown to tie the design together.
I love the construction on this bra!! The fit on the side is *perfect* for my narrow roots and close-set breasts; you can see in this picture https://www.bratabase.com/picture/dmarj/ with the arrows. The wings are just tall enough where they tuck in my back fat; the wire length is good for me as well. I would say I have average root height.
I'm not sure when exactly I decided to try out light jogging in this bra: I was probably walking and thought, "I should try jogging in this bra." I've kind of sized out of my current sports bra, and this one is so easy to put on. So, I've actually found that this bra works fine for light jogging; I might try adding something called the "boob buddy" but it's currently out of stock. I'm getting my use out of this bra though! It's made from such firm material - that's the fun with Comexim, each of the fabrics are different. Sometimes I still wear it as a normal bra as well.
TL; DR, This bra has an amazing fit and construction but I've sacrificed it to be sometimes a jogging bra (light jogging only!); this bra would look amazing if you have some warm skin tones, which I do not have. Nonetheless, it's a beautiful bra! Hashtag, #ThanksComexim!! Read more 313 more words
My shape: semi-conical, firm, splayed, narrow width, tall shallow roots, size and shape asymmetry on right side.
I haven’t bought from Comexim in about a year, because I was so disappointed in how my 60O Curacao turned out. Hot Chocolate is a standard plunge instead of an extra deep plunge like Curacao. I think they did a better job on this one, but it really showcases how inconsistent the brand is. I had asked for the straps to be moved in 2cm, the cup height to be lowered 1cm, and to add cotton cookie pockets. It does have the cookie pockets, and I think they did lower the cup ...height, as it 8” high. I cannot tell if the straps have been moved in, as I still have to angle them inwards. The stretched band measures 28.25”, which is surprising given how many folks have said they are making the bands longer. I really appreciate this.
I asked them to lower the cup height because my shallow, conical breasts do not fill out any cup top. In the photos, because of the wide straps, it still looks like the cups are too big. This is not the case. The cups are 12” deep, and I feel a bit compressed on my larger side. Depending on how I move my arms, the top of the cup will cut into me slightly. I have two cookies in on my smaller side to help with the top gaping. Lowering the cup height might have been a bit of a mistake, as bending over to pick things up leads me dangerously close to popping out of the cup top.
It’s often said around here that Comexim doesn’t know how to make small band, large cup bras. This bra fits better on me than the extra deep plunge cut, and the 3HC in the same size. I have to wonder if it has something to do with the height of the gore wires. They put too much fabric on the outside of the cup near the straps, and not enough in the middle to contain the breasts. It’s not the worst fit I’ve ever had from them, so I do think I will experiment again with another standard plunge. Read more 263 more words

*Edit this is a Comexim 60L not 60J* I recently bought this second hand Comexim Hot Chocolate Plunge Bra Tagged Size 28J (US?) I Purchased It on a second hand app from. Reseller who listed it as fitting like a UK 28G or 28FF. I wear about a 28FF right now after some weight loss. I like Polish bras, I am Petite and Only 4 ft 8 so I also have more narrow shoulders so I like the more narrow wires. This is a Plunge Style which I have always preferred. I am somewhat close set due to my lower fulness but it's not as extreme now that ...I don't have as much upper/centerfullness with my size. I am currently.more FOB and somewhat projected. I just lost weight so and was FOB but also had a lot of center fullness and some upper fullness before. This Bra feels like the exact Bra I needed before. The cup size and height is a little too large now that I have lost weight.I think it was a miscommunication/misinterpretation between the reseller and I about the aprox. UK size, But I am still happy I bought this Bra because When my weight fluctuates up again this will be exactly whT I need I think. The wire width is perfect. The cup heights a little higher now but it's okay. I like how this envelopes my breasts. I don't have much cleavage because it's a little too big. the Band is firm and comfortable and the straps are a good distance apart and thick and supportive and fully adjust. It's a pretty and functional Bra, made up of two pieces wirh another piece across the top. The Gore is comfortable and it does not poke my armpits! It is a very pretty chocolate brown with a reddish pink lace covering that made it very apparent that it was one of their hot chocolate plubge bras. this Bra doesnt not fit me perfectly now but it is still very comfortable. It is more comfortable than my other UK 28GGs I have. So. I plan to keep this bra. I think I need a little less projectio rigbt now, but this is the exact Bra I needed 1 yr ago+ and will need again.

Ok, so I keep putting off reviewing this bra. I had hoped to get feedback from Anna on this and the 70H - Comexim » Triss 3hc but it hasn’t happened because of the changes last month. Nevertheless, should I get the feedback, I’ll update this post.
Now about the bra....
I have wanted this bra for so so so long. I love the brown base and salmony coral lace overlay. I love that it had texture yet still relatively flat. The matching shorts are cute, and while I’m not really a fan of the boy short style as they do not generally flatter my figure, ...I still wanted them. I did consider asking if they could be made in a different style but decided to stick with the szorty.
The volume of the Jade is/was fine, but the cups were too tall and the straps were too widely spaced. The Ingrid is pretty good, but it’s slightly too large, however the way it closes on top helps hide that, and it’s a little more coverage than I expect from a plunge as a result. I wanted to try it because of the alterations (straps moved in 2cm, 2cm depth at wire, reduced cups though it was questionable if that was really fine) as the Jade was unaltered. Nevertheless, it is still a fave. The Lady Grey is is also altered (equivalent to the Jade with 2cm straps moved in, 2cm lowered gored, and 2cm reduced cups) and a little bit small on my big boob. This one is also a fave. So with this in mind, including pictures and videos, Anna opted to make this as a 70H with straps moved in 2cm, gore reduced by 1cm, and 2cm more depth at the wire. I admit that I was a bit surprised at the combination, especially with the cups not reduced, but I figured I would try it and see.
With all this in mind, the fit is pretty good. It’s not 100% perfect, so it’s not my perfect size and alterations. It’s not going to stop me from wearing it though, and if I figure out what is my best size and alterations are, I might try to reorder it again. The band is pretty tight, so I definitely couldn’t have done a 65 in this one. The 70 is snug and fits well on my 28.5” but somewhat sensitive ribcage. The band is covered with the lace that covers the cups, so I am not surprised by a snug band. The straps feel like they’re a little bit wide, making me question the alteration, but I have compared with the straps on my Ingrid and they overlap exactly the same, so...? The cups seem like they are a little bit full coverage, like the Ingrid, which is not inherently a bad thing, just an observation, and the cup volume is maybe a bit more than I need, by like maybe a quarter of an inch. I’m still waiting to ovulate, but it might be better for high tide boobs, if I ever get there. I’m not sure if I need the added depth or not. Maybe I need 1cm? Maybe none? I’m not sure if reduced cups on added depth really leads to a shorter cup. I feel like they negate each other as more depth means my breasts settle in lower and even removing depth makes them still tall. I’m not sure if it’s a solid theory. Tightened the straps a little bit more and the gapping is not as bad. I’m not sure if I need a reduced gore. I don’t think it hurts, but I’m not sure if it’s a benefit to me. The cup width of this bra is fine. The wings seem a little bit tall, especially with the smaller 2x3 hook tape, but it’s not a problem, just a visual aesthetic.
I ordered a Queen of Hearts with the Valentine’s Day sale in a 65HH (because it shows band is stretchy in the measurements here) with straps moved in, overlapping gore and 2x4 hooks. So we’ll see what the fit is like in the cups with minimal alteration. I’m hoping that I can get away with only straps moved in as the fewer alterations, the better.
The szorty was really tight. You can see the difference in the width at the hips in my pictures. I did break the seams at the hip area on top and, combined with washing them, it fits better. The lace is still a bit rigid but it’s more wearable, especially with the leg hole moved to my crease to fit more like a hipster or cheeky, as the back side is not total coverage.
I do really love this set. It’s not a perfect set, but it’s comfortable and I wear it as much as I can.
Update Dec 2020:
So I added a few more recent pictures to the profile that show a more accurate representation for the current fit. I took them to add to an email to Joanna along with the Queen of Hearts and Lady Grey for suggestions on alterations. The response I got was, if it like the fit of the Hot Chocolate, stick with the same alterations. I did reply back saying that I felt it was maybe a little bit too large and too tall still, and would it be too much trouble to also reduce the cups or would reducing the cup depth from 2cm to 1cm reduce the volume and cup height slightly, so we’ll see if I get a response. Just curious about the feedback from here on the fit and where you think an alteration is needed. I might opt to post a fit request. Read more 921 more words
This bra's measurements have been altered
Straps moved in 2cm, gore reduced by 1cm, cups deeper at bottom by 2cm
I have been wanting a hot chocolate bra for quite a while. This color combination and lace are very beautiful.
I frequently wear this size in Comexim. Breakoutbras Comexim are often a bit long in the band to top it off. However, this band measures as a true 28, so when I saw that I knew I might be in for trouble. I can fasten the bra, but it feels uncomfortable. The angle picture shows how the bra fits with an extender. If I use the extender, the cups are clearly too big. When I wear the bra without the cups are wrapping too far around my side, helping ...me fill the cups, but making the cups and straps cut in to my sides and shoulders. The bra also felt like there was not enough immediate projection, like it was a bit shallow. However, the incorrect fit could have affected this feeling.
All in all, this bra is clearly the wrong size for me, I would need up a band size and down 1-2 cup sizes. Unfortunately they don’t have any in this size available on sale at BoB. Read more 79 more words
This is my very first Comexim purchase. I have just been recently sized professionally and by using multiple calculators. I am a 30GG or H (band on loosest or middle). The US retailer of this bra suggested going up 2 sizes and I purchased the 30J which is equivalent to 65M.
The Fit on me: Band is on the tightest and I prefer tighter. The fabric has quite a bit of stretch to it. The Wires are the first that fit my frame. The cup is a little large and goes up into my armpit.
If I were to order again..... I would go down in band and cup. So I would order the 28J instead.
I love the look of this bra. This is my second try at Hot Chocolate and it's definitely a better fit. It is slightly too small on my larger breast and an excellent fit on my smaller side. It's comfy and supportive with all day wear and gives the narrow, projected shape I prefer.
This is another Hot Chocolate from Breakout Bras' recent final sale. BoB apparently custom orders special tags from Comexim with UK sizing, as 34K is the only size shown on the tag or label. Their recommendation is to size up two cups from your regular UK size, or one for more "vavoom." I usually wear a 34J and they happened to have one left at 34K, so I snagged it to try.
By the measurements, it looks like this would be the right size for me - it's pretty close to a 34J Elomi Morgan in cup width, depth, and height. In actuality it doesn't fit. With some ...extra scooping and swooping I *just about* fill out the cups, but the shape is all wrong for me. It spreads out horizontally and makes my breasts look like round sourdough loaves, lol. I measured the top lip of the cup from gore to strap, and it was just over 9.5", whereas the Morgan is only 6", so I think this would work better for someone who needs a lot more width on the top? The cups and the gore seemed like they were tipped forward, like there wasn't enough tension on the top of the band. The gore was far from tacking and the bra gave me a little bit of butt-crack cleavage. This is the first seamed, padded bra I have ever owned, and the other one I recently tried, the CK Day Dreamer, has a similar shape and lean, so I don't know if this is kind of how this style is typically cut.
The stretched band measured 36", but even though that is my approximate loose underband measurement, I couldn't even clasp it without an elastic extender.
I double and triple checked the cup width, because on paper it's the same as the Morgan, but the Hot Chocolate cuts across breast tissue on the sides, at least when my arms are down. If I lift my arms up, it follows the curve perfectly. Guess I'll have to walk around like that, haha. The wires slid down as much as any (all) other bras on me and the shape lost some of its lift. Despite all this, it was perfectly comfortable over a few hours wear. It's also a looker with a black mesh covered with a rich, warm rust-brown colored lace. But not to be for me.

Going to make this a bit brief so I apologize for the lack of extra details.
Overall great fit, but fit much like Elena plunge since the strap alteration I'd asked for weren't done Straps being tightened/too wide set caused further gaping in cups, which pulled cups in and also prevented some projection Gore floats but band doesn't seem to sit harshly across Feels a bit stretchy/large? But moving in the clasps to the middle set made a more snug fit. Feeling of fabric is great, band fits well and underwire sits fine. I absolutely love the lace details and will probably order this one again asap! However I will not try plunge again, and instead request a 3HC style.
