This bra that I thought was the "one that got away" is actually in my wardrobe! I don't care if it's a tad too small in the cups and a bit too loose in the band either...it's mine, it's gorgeous... And WOW, the Comexim's 3 half cup looks fantastic on!
I'm so happy I reordered this in a different size, it fits quite well. When I initially tried it on I thought it was a bit too big, but I just needed to tighten the straps a bit, I get the slightest bit of gaping on my right side, but I think a size down would be too small. I could have went with the 65 band though as the 70 is pretty TTS, my Irish Coffee Plunge is a bit on the smaller side of TTS in the band and I got it used so I decided to go with the 70, it does fit quite well, but I think I will be on the 2nd hook after a few wears. I ordered this with straps moved in 2cm, but I don't think it was done.
When I pulled this bra out of the package I was so surprised to find that Irish Coffee is now made with a different lace! Instead of the original creme-colored overlay, this one has a tan-colored intricate floral one. I actually think I like it better than the original https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> The fit is consistent with my other 65J 3HCs; still a little lacking in center projection but otherwise super comfy. Like the Irish Coffee plunge, the band on this model is just a bit less firm than my other Comexims.
I custom-ordered this bra as 80N, but the label says 36JJ à la Wellfitting . Anna Matczak told me Irish Coffee is sewn with a new lace, but I've never seen the old lace in person to compare color. This lace is more of a pink dark-beige than pictures of the original lace look.
I bought this bra after trying on the Tropical Garden Halfcup in 65K and finding it about a cup too small. Now I wonder it that one just ran small in general because this is a lot bigger in the cup than I expected. If I put a set of cookies in it it fits perfectly, and it's pretty close without them. I asked for overlapping gore wires but I don't think I actually got them. They overlap a little bit but not as much as the last of I tried, which is a bummer, but not insurmountable for me. Ideally, I would want it narrower. The cups ...are wider than I expected as well, so even though I moved the straps in 2cm they are set a touch wider than I would like. Because the cups are bigger than I expected they are also taller than I expected. Not quite too tall, but almost. Curse my short roots and need for immediate projection!
This isn't a perfect fit for me, but it's soooooo close that I'm going to keep it because it's so beautiful. Read more 76 more words
This must be one of the most comfortable bras I have ever put on, the fabric is just so soft and the band doesn't feel too tight or too loose, it's perfect on my 29" ribcage. The bra gives a very flattering round shape, the straps are fully adjustable and the 3x3 hook closure makes the band feel very secure.
I wear 70H or 65HH in Comexim plunges, and I was unsure which size I should get for a half cup since I read that you might want to size up in the half cups. I bought this one from another bratabase user, and I had a 65J ...coming in the mail at the same time, and the 65J is too big in the cup for me. This one fits me perfectly on my smaller side, and I quad a little on my bigger side, but it could be due to the stiff(ish) ribbon on the edge of the cup and because the straps are moved in on this one, so I have placed an order with Comexim with a standard strap placement in a 70H half cup and will see how that one fits.

I special ordered this by email since Irish Coffee is no longer on Comeixm's website. I requested it as a 3HC and chose 70H based off the fit of my Sonia in 75G. The band while being small for a 70 fits me perfectly, the cups however are too big for me. I expected the cups to fit more like my Sonia I have in 75G, but the cups on the Irish Coffee are about 2cm larger and the wires are a decent amount wider as well. The measurements of this 70H are quite similar to the 70H Sonia I got at the same time.
I would like to reorder the Irish Coffee 3HC, but am unsure of which size to try. I've emailed Comexim and linked the bratabase measurements so maybe they can tell me if the 70H or 75G are accurate measurements for their size.
