    80K

    Hasn't set fit

    Okay, to begin with I’m not sure what’s going on with my cup size. My first Comexim bras were 80HH and while they seemed to fit, I felt like the 80J may be more comfortable. I bought a few 3HC and plunge bras in 80J with reduced cup height and increased depth at the wire last spring. These bras fit and seemed like the ideal size until I recently realized recently that these once comfy bras were suddenly feeling tight. I waited it out, thinking it was hormones, but the 80Js are definitely feeling small even though my weight hasn’t changed much (only a few pounds and when ... I started buying Comexim I weighed more than I do now). I’m in my late 40s and I don’t know if it’s a hormonal thing or just me slowly figuring out my cup size. I ordered a plunge bra and the Mimi in 80K and the plunge is so comfortable, it fits so well and the back fat I was seeing in my 80Js has almost disappeared. I’ll post a review on that bra later. I am not sure if this increase in cup size is something temporary and I’m afraid of investing too much in bras that might not fit, but I need more than one comfortably fitting bra.

    Unfortunately the Mimi that I received is wrong on so many levels.

    This is my first complete miss with Comexim and the first time they didn’t provide the modifications I requested. I ordered this because I had previously ordered a Mimi 3HC in 80J with the similar modifications, which were a reduced cup height and deeper at the wire. The 80J fit okay at the time, but the cup height was just too low. I did like how the cup seemed more closed at the top and with my FOB, centre full, soft breasts, I thought that this style should work well for me with the right alterations. I ordered the Mimi in 80K as a 3HC with reduced cup height, deeper at the wire and straps moved in. I am not sure about the straps, but I think it’s deeper at the wire but it’s definitely only a 2 part half-cup bra. I think the pictures tell the story. The bra flattens out my center tissue, is cut too low, and cuts into my breast tissue. I am frustrated, as I feel like the Mimi should work for me. I’m considering trying again, with it deeper at the wire and with the straps moved in but without reducing the cup height, but I’m afraid I’m just wasting my money at this point. I like the look of 3HC bras, but Comexim plunge bras definitely work better for me.

    Anyone have the Mimi without reduced cup height? Is it lower than other half cup bras? Should I try again with this style or call it at this point?

    60K

    Didn't fit

    Ordered Alterations:
    - straps moved in
    - cookie pockets

    AESTHETICS:

    The stock photo shows a sort of silvery vertical ripple pattern. It does not exist on this bra. It's a very solid, plain-ish black. Others may be pleasantly surprised by that, but I was a bit disappointed. The straps have a cute solid black detailing to them. The only part of this bra that isn't black is the faux silver-and-pearl charm that is stitched onto the bow at the center gore.

    FIT:

    This bra wasn't available in a 65K, or any higher cups in a 65+ band, and I really wanted to try their half-cups. I think this ... would have worked for me in a 65L or even 65M, or maybe a 70K/70L. I do think their half cup might be a better shape for me if I can get the right size.

    MATERIAL:

    The material isn't bad, but nowhere near as luxe as my AP's. The material inside the cups is soft cotton, but the material of the band feels much like the way I described my Cleo Lily in Swan Print-- like the plasticky-feeling nylon tea bags Tazo uses. For me, that's uncomfortable against my skin, and I'm the sort to blister if that's against my skin all day. I do think it feels quite sturdy, and would stand up well to wear. The charm feels like it may be made out of the same stuff as rings you get from the quarter machine-- it's cute, though.

    CUPS:

    As previously stated, the inside of the cups are lined with soft cotton. They're lightly padded with foam, and there is a single vertical seam. I'm not sure if the bottom of the cups felt too shallow because they *are* shallow at the bottom, or if it's because the cups are too small. The height was great, though, even with my short roots (I think they're short? They act short). They are a bit wide on me, but that may not be an issue since Comexim wires seem more about support than murder, which is a nice counter to my experience with certain UK wires. *coughcoughPanachecough*

    STRAPS:

    The placement on these isn't as comfortable as on my Anna Pardal Nuance Plunges, and I think for me it would chafe the front of my underarms after a while, but it definitely doesn't murder them the way my CK Tease does. I do find that the cute detailing on the straps makes it very difficult to adjust them, although I think they tried to combat that with the second layer of wider, solid material under the ruched top layer.

    GORE:

    I adore the way Comexim set up the gore. It's .7" at the top, and for the top 1.25" it's no wider than an inch. At the very bottom of the gore, it's about 2" wide. EVERY gore is too wide/high for me, with the apparent exceptions of Comexim and Anna Pardal. Also, their wires are sort of more like Freya wires, so they aren't super painful even if they were to dig. However, I think I would need them to overlap to tack properly; the gore soft tacks, with the top not quite touching my sternum. I blame my boobs, for loving to cuddle.

    BAND:

    I'd hazard a guess that this would fit like a 28G or 26GG. The band feels like it isn't likely to stretch out much, or quickly. It can stretch further than 27", but the cups begin to distort. As stated before, the band is an odd, almost plasticky nylon-feeling stuff. Not my fave. It may have more give after a wash or two, as I think there's a ton of starch or whatever in it.

    WIRES:

    Nope, not quite in my IMF. They're wide enough and then some, but the cup is a bit shallow, or just too small. Either way, the wires don't snuggle up to my IMF the way they should.

    DOWNSIDES:

    - Straps are tough to adjust.
    - It's too small.
    - Oddly uncomfortable (for me) material for the full length of the band.
    - Dammit it's too small.

    I'll be listing this!

      "Comexim wires seem more about support than murder, which is a nice counter to my experience with certain UK wires. *coughcoughPanachecough*"

      LOL!

    • bonjourhi I'd asked for reduced cups and gore on my Queen of Hearts, along with straps moved in. I did say I only wanted the straps moved in on Mimi, but it's possible they reduced the gore. Maybe even the cups, which might explain the plungey slope, since they usually mostly remove cup near the straps. That would explain why one of the emails I got said the Queen could be "conquered" 3cm and Mimi could be "conquered" 1cm.

    • bonjourhi I wrote it in both, but I can totally see how it could be confusing with the language barrier.

    Didn't fit

    I actually love this bra, but unfortunately it just doesn’t fit me. It is shallower at the wire than Comexim’s plunges or 3HCs, so when I tried it on it just pushed me right out of the top. The band is also too tight on me, which I had known was likely; I was surprised when it came up as a recommendation from the Bratabase because I usually wear a 65 in Comexim band, but I thought maybe the band on the Mimi Half Cup was just very stretchy. So far in my experience and based on the measurements, I would say it is not an excessively stretchy band. If Comexim 65s are too big for you, this 60 would probably be perfect. One style thing to note is that on the stock photo the Mimi had two black bows on the gore, one above the other, but the one I received just had one bow with double loops.

    I am in love with this bra. It gives a great uplift, which is so hard to do with my soft VFOB shape - honestly it's a bit shallower than I expected so the profile is not as rounded as I'd like, but isn't too shallow as to cause wrinkling. I get a teeny bit of quadding on my larger side but not enough as to be a problem. The band is nice and wide and sturdy, with 3 hooks for nice even support. Super narrow cups follow my IMF perfectly Bonus: it's absolutely gorgeous to look at.

    This bra was way more shallow than I was expecting!
    I definitely would need a bigger cup, but I am not sure if it would have enough projection even then.
    The materials all felt comfy and the bra was cute for being the necessary plain-old "nude".
    The band was a tad loose for me.
    The gore is higher than I usually like, but it is SUPER narrow so it doesn't bother me.
    The straps are wide and comfy.

  6. This is one of my two favourite bras right now and I miss it when it goes in the wash.

    The Good: I'm on the small side of a 28 band and I love Comexim's 60 bands. I wear it quite happily on the loosest hooks. Just like every other Comexim I've had, it feels like a cloud to wear. I'm also pretty narrow and close-set, and the wires on this bra almost exactly follow my IMF, which would be great except...

    The Bad: It's not got quite enough immediate projection for me. So I get wrinkling at the base of the cup, but that's not a dealbreaker. The straps are also very far apart, and I see why having the straps moved in 2cm is a popular alteration.

    The Ugly: nada.

    The band is 1 too large and the cup 1 too small for me. I like the cut; it's VERY open on top like a half cup. I think it would be lovely on the right size. The color is a yellow leaning ivory with a subtle tonal wavy line pattern to the fabric.

    I got this one because the Carnival fit me so well, but the cups on the Mimi are more closed on top than the Carnival, even though they are both 2HCs. My measurements have changed and now this bra is much too small for me.

    I really hate the bows on this bra.
    In my experience, Comexim bras tend to stretch out a lot, so I bought this bra in a smaller band size and added an extender. Unfortunately, I have since discovered that I have super wide roots, which obviously don't really work with Comexim bras. (Unless you alter them... Which I have since done to another Comexim bra that I own.)

    Heads up: Unless you're an super sewer, removing the frontal bows looks to be a challenge. It appears they were sewn in during the bras "construction" phase, rather than at the end as an add-on. I planned to remove the bows, but they appear to be sewn into the "skeleton" part, if that makes any sense. I think if I snipped the stitches on the bows, it would open major seams.

    My only other complaint is that the two part construction of the cup lends itself to being significantly more shallow that I would expect from a Comexim bra. I was definitely disappointed!
