I'll write a full review of this bra on my blog in due course but for now here are the key points:
- 75 band good, although possibly 70 would be better for longer term wear - M cups too small. Wires too narrow. Some quadboob, but also there is a gap at the top of the cups. Suggest shorter cups (custom order) and would like to try lower centre gore as well, for more clothing options. - Straps fully adjust and are very comfy. - Band quite stretchy.
I have been trying really hard to find a way to get a Comexim bra that fits me with no strap gap. This bra comes quite close to having no strap gap, but HOOOOOLY QUADDING. It's not too noticeable from the front or with my shoulders slouched, but if I pull my shoulders back or raise an arm it becomes quite noticeable.
I have normally been wearing a 70N with reduced cup height. For this bra I tried a 65P. I went down a band size with the intention of using an extender at first, since I've been noticing that most of my Comexim stretch fairly quickly ...(I do in fact need all three rows of the extender for now). I went up a cup volume to try to get more cup depth (this gave me about 2cm in extra cup depth). Finally, I reduced the cup height by 3 cm. This created a cup height that works pretty well for me at the straps.
Unfortunately, I think that the cup is still not deep enough. The cup depth of this bra is 32cm, and based on my rough estimates I would want something closer to 35-36cm if I wanted them to be basically held without compressing any of the tissue upwards (for anyone curious about my estimating techiques, I laid one breast flat on my palm like I'd want a bra to support it, then measured the perimeter in that position). Since the cup wasn't deep enough, some of the tissue gets pushed upwards by the bra, leading to some quadding. I think I may have to abandon my attempts to get a bra that is deep enough and short enough to be a truly good fit from Comexim and just let the cup height compensate for the lack of depth for me.
Otherwise though, I do really like the bra. The straps are the thicker straps that Comexim uses, and are a bit hard to adjust which means they won't slide from where you've adjusted them. Plus who doesn't love leopard print! Read more 238 more words
omgosh this is SO comfy! i feel like a snob because i found my "perfect" bra! comexim has the best wires for me, and i'm able to go a cup size up to get the immediate projection i need, and then alter the gore down/closer (i'm extremely close set,) reduce cup height, add an extra row+column of hooks, etc. its AMAZING. so now i buy the "softest" or "silkiest" that i can find, and get them w/cookie pockets (those are cotton) and I've been in HEAVEN... the fabric on Pantera feels amazing, and although animal print isnt my thing, i dont even care. it FEELS awesome!

This bra's measurements have been altered
Straps moved in, lowered & overlapping gore, cookie pockets, 3x4 hooks, (possible lowered cups)
This bra is my best fitting Comexim. It's much more closed on top and has less room near the gore than other Comexims, which is good news for me. This makes it the only one that doesn't gape on me at all. If you're FOB, this will be a great option for you! The fabric is also extremely soft and smooth. It feels like it stays in my IMF and it's quite comfy.
This bra is the 4th Comexim I'm trying. The 3 other ones are in 65k. So I though that I would get a cup smaller with a 70HH, but to my surprise, the cup of the Pantera in 70HH is bigger than my 3 65k, for at least one cup, maybe 2. Looks to me like a 70L I would say.
this fits Perfect! at least it feels perfect! they only put a cookie pocket on one side though, so i dont think the other alterations were necessarily completed. this is SO soft and gives a great shape.
This was close but not quite right. Like my Wellfitting Irish Coffee bra, the cup proportions were pretty good, but the short wires (too short for the channels) left me spilling out into my armpits. This bra was also too tight in the band, but I expected that. I don't think I'd really *need* a reduced cup if the wings were taller, but it couldn't hurt. Overall, up to the usual Comexim standard; just doesn't quite work for me.
I bought this, as I was quadding in my 75J model of this; however, this one is about a half to a full cup size big. The band feels between a 32 and 34, which is perfect for me. I just can't fill in the cups all the way, so there's some gaping at the top of the cup.
