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
This bra's measurements have been altered
Move in straps 2 cm, reduce cup height 1cm, add cookie pockets
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.
