Got this from the wonderful Jaimie at Bra Obsessed from the clearance bin. I wanted to try a Comexim balcony, since their plunges are an utter fail for me (not deep enough at the wire among other issues) and the 3-part HC's are too wide if the cup & band size is big enough. Sadly, because I really, really love Comexim as a company, this is also a fail. The top panel seems to be smaller/shorter than the dimensions of the lower part of the cup would indicate and angles in quite sharply. I'll bet this would be great for someone more FOB! The bottom is made of ... a slightly stretchy glowy knit in a mesmerizing color that defies description (I'm calling it fawny-mauvey-cocoa because it changes from brown to purple and back, depending on what you put it next to; it is a true neutral). The straps are not too wide set, firm, and the band is nice and supportive. It is deep enough for my immediate projection, and provides the natural-moderate lift I expect in a soft bra (its not saggy but not Cleo either). The wires and gore are narrow, and they are somewhat flexible so I could wear this baby all an active day with comfort. All good so far! However the top panel is NOT stretchy at all. It is densely embroidered and the fabric is on the OPPOSITE bias of the bottom panels. It is not lined, so the embroidery (which is beautiful flowers and shooting stars) is scratchy; I can see it bothering someone with more sensitive skin. Plus it seems to be attached almost oddly perpendicular to the bottom panels, and is very tight to the gore. So it cuts in something awful from the top & center, my girls look for some place else to go and get pushed down/sideways/squished and I end up with a bad shape and discomfort. Very sad :/ because I love the color and other than the weirdness of that top piece, it would be perfect!
