My shape: semi-conical, splayed, narrow width, tall shallow roots. My breasts don't conform to bra shapes very well and are quite short.
This is my first Comexim plunge and I love it! I wasn't originally sold on the plaid, but it was in stock on Zathiya so I thought I would try it. After I tried it on I changed my mind. I love the plaid. My husband, who rarely comments on bras, said that he liked it on me as well.
The band on this is rather snug, it stretches to a max of 28.5" inches. The cups measure 8" high, but the angle of the cups makes this bra a good choice for short or shallow roots. The gore is higher than any of my EM plunges, but doesn't seem to press on any tissue due to my splayedness. A close set person might not like the height on the gore.
This is a great bra, and seems to fit my shape better than the Comexim half cups. Short breasts, rejoice!
I really like the look of this bra. I love plaid, and the black lace is a nice accent. I ordred this one and the Paola from Comexim through Breakout Bras, based on the fit of the Ingrid I have, also from BB. The band on the Ingrid is great, even a little stretchy, but the cups are too small. I expected this one to be perfect, but the band only stretches to 26.5", and that is with some effort. I coud get it on after a bit of struggle, but then the cups were too small (might be because of the band). It's such a nice bra, and I really wish it had been pefect.
This was my first try with Comexims deep plunges and it will be my last one. I tried my standard Comexim Plunge size (Thanks MamaPagan this was spot on) and is mostly fits. I noticed some differencies compared to standard plunge. The Cups were slightly more shallow and the gore height was smaller. Unfortunately this resulted in a slightly floating gore. Also I guess the cups were more closed which is hard for me to say as I am rather FOB. If I do not sort my breasts properly I am quadding in this bra. Also I think the shape in this bra is slightly more minimized than in Comexims standard plunges. Adding the fact that I did not like the design in person, I returned the bra (which was possible as I ordered a standard size).
This is my second foray into Comexim after I outgrew the first one and was down to one ill-fitting Cleo Lexi that'd stretched out really fast, and a Boux Avenue that wasn't far behind.
The Good: Again a great snug band. Fits my 27 inch ribcage like a dream on the loosest hook. Comfort wise it's like wearing nothing at all (cue the stupid sexy Flanders GIF) even after a long hospitality shift. I'm narrow-rooted, close-set and centre-full and the wires and gore are both narrow enough for me. The tartan fabric is adorable and a very rich emerald green. The straps are wide enough for traction but not ...nanna-esque. Even with the slight cup size underestimation I've made again, I don't have to adjust my boobs at all in this bra after the initial swoop and scoop. They stay exactly where I put them (looking at you, Cleo Lexi) and the gore doesn't ride up and sit on the tissue on my big side (looking at you every other bra I own.)
The Bad: I've managed to underestimate my cup size again, though in my defence I think the padded plunges run shallow and I seem to be growing very slowly so that I don't notice it until suddenly I realise I have hot-cross bun boobs in all my bras... There's a decent bit of quadding on my big side and the bottom of the cups collapse a little even on my small side, so in this cut I probably want a 60H. I get the teensiest bit of jiggle in it, so someone without my rock-hard tissue would probably find it wobbly.
The Ugly: Nothing. I truly love this bra.
I'm going to try re-ordering a couple of bras in a 60H now and see how I go. The month turn-around is tedious, but this is the best fit I've ever had and I'm seriously ready to burn that Cleo Lexi. Read more 211 more words
8/11/18 update: I finally pulled this out of storage & shortened the band and lowered the cup curve. While the wires are still too wide (& wing too tall), the bra is now wearable. I'll add new photos (if I remember) when I wear it. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> New band measurements are 21.5" to 29" max.
I am adding this bra for data/informational purposes only. This Bra is not owned by me at the time of addition to the database.
Patricia is normally a deep padded plunge bra in a green plaid pattern. The padding is light foam lining without additional/removable pads. I tried it this time in 60P with customizations, but I tried it previously in 65N standard, reviewed separately. This one has two bows at the center gore, one at top and one midway down. There was only one at the top on 65N.
The band measures 21.65” to a max of 28”. I requested an extra set of eye ...loops, so it has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops, normally this size would come with 3 hooks and 3 sets of eyes as standard. The 65N measured 22.75-32” with 3 hooks & 3 rows of eye loops.
Cup Depth as measured by: 1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance. This measurement is: 12.5”
2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance. This measurement is: 14.5”
I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.
The height at the center of the cup is 8.5”, and though I requested the cup height to be reduced by 2.5cm, I believe they did about 1cm instead. The 65N measured 12” to 14.5” max, and 8.75” in height.
The straps were requested to be moved in 2.5cm, but based on where they sit, I’m thinking 1.5cm were done instead. This is based on my other Patricia and my other 60P Comexim bras, both with and without the straps moved in.
The center gore is set at .55” and is 3.65” tall. Patricia is usually a deep plunge, and I requested my order to be lowered gore by 2cm where possible, but at 3.65” I know my gore was raised instead, by about 1cm. This is based on the gore height of my other 60P Comexim plunges, as well as my Patricia 65N.
The wing measures 5.65” & the wires 6” from top to top which is the golden number for Comexim’s 60P wires. The 65N measured .5” and 3” tall at gore, wing 5.5” & wires 6.15”.
While the 65N would be a cup smaller than the 60P in comparison with sister sizing, it is clear that the customizations I requested were not done as specified, though exactly how off I cannot say for sure.
The quality is fine, without any notable issues, aside from the customizations not done as specified.
Customizations requested vs. received: Overlapped center gore wires – Received as requested Straps moved in 2.5cm – Straps moved in 1.5cm Additional set of eyes – Received as requested Reduced cup height 2.5cm – Reduced cup height 1cm Lowered center gore 2cm if possible - Raised center gore 1 cm
As for fit, unfortunately I got instant quad boob, and since I was at low tide, this one wasn’t wearable at all. The gore sat 2.5 fingers off my sternum and on my breast tissue, which wouldn’t be an issue if they’d lowered the gore as requested. The band is perfectly comfortable.
Overall, I am a bit disappointed that my customizations were not completely honored or brought to my attention beforehand if not doable as requested. Since I was contacted specifically on two of the bras within my order, I was surprised at how much was omitted. Of the four bras I ordered this time, none of them were done as requested which is quite disappointing.
This bra is CRAZY comfortable and a lovely shape for me. I've actually never found a molded bra that actually moves with my breasts. However, something about the gore doesn't feel quite right - it's a hair too wide and tall to lie perfectly flat, and the cups seem to run a full size small. If I were to order from Comexim again (a definite possibility - the gore issues don't outweigh the overall comfort and fit of the cups) I'd have to go one cup size up.
