    Typical Comexim quality and narrow, projected fit. Super excited to have this stunner in a half cup, especially now that my plunge is too tall :-) I love the allover green lace and think the two bras look different enough to justify keeping both, which is good because I'm sentimentally attached to both. Yes, I love my bras.... it's kinda sad LOL. Band is on the tight side of TTS but should stretch easily like my plunge did. Full review on the blog!

    3HC, two seams colorway

      The bra is so pretty on you. Almost makes me want to get one (in 3HC)

    • 2

      Luxurious!! So lovely :-) This color combination is unexpected and stunning. I so look forward to Comexim's next creations.

      Omg! I need! It's so gorgeous! Would you say the 3HC fits similarly to Ewa half cups?

    • It does. I did a very detailed analysis and comparison of them here: https://thephotogsbrog.wordpress.com/2016/01/28/bra-science-a-direct-comparison-between-ewa-michalak-chp-comexim-3-part-half-cups/

      The edge Ewa's have cups have is more center projection for those who are really center full and need that.

    • 2

      Absolutely gorgeous on you! We think alike, as I've got the plunge and just recently received my half cup and there's no way I'm about to part with either of them. Love bras like this, that can look so different in the two cuts. :)

    • Thanks! and totally agree! I didn't know anyone else had it in a half cup! It's beautiful either way.

      I've been getting quite a few styles made into half cups, and I must say, Comexim never disappoints. My Jade should be here any day; can't wait for that one! It looks exactly like this Poison Ivy 3HC only the background is green and the lace overlay is black. :) In case anyone is wondering which bra that is, it's the exclusive one through Jaimie at bra obsessed. I believe there's a picture of my half cup on the bra obsessed facebook page.

      SO beautiful on you! Now I want one :).

      stunning! I had to have this one after I saw your pistures! I ordered it last week and hope I'll get a payment thing (forgot how you call it) soon! It's looks great on you! Hope it will fit me similarly!

      Anya99 did you get the jade from braobsessed or from comexim? I LOVE the look of it and I'm thinking of adding it to my order :D

    • 2

      This is gorgeous!
      I never really thought much about purchasing the Poison Ivy because I thought the beige would look odd with my skintone, but after seeing this I think I need it xD
      That green though *swoon*

    • 2

      The green is what sells it for me! The beige does look weird with my skin tone because I am warm-skinned with yellow undertones and it is very cool, pinkish beige. But I don't care. That green is enchanting.

      BronteBeach: I ordered mine through Jaimie (bra obsessed). She showed me a picture of the Jade plunge prototype. It wasn't even sewn yet, only pinned. I had just received my 3HC Poison Ivy and LOVED the look of it, so I requested my Jade in the 3HC as well. Can't wait to get it! And don't disregard this because I'm an enabler, but I really do think you should get it! :) I thought I saw a post on here that someone had gotten a Bra Obsessed exclusive through Comexim direct. I'm sorry I can't remember who it was and I didn't know Comexim would do that, so I got mine from Jaimie. Either way, I hope you get one too. :)

    • Anya99 I look forward to seeing your Jade and Poison Ivy half cups! What size did you end up getting? I'm still trying to pin down sizing, and I know we're close...

    • 2

      I like it design wise even more as a half cup and I loved it in the original form . I wish I was wealthy instead of poor lol then I could get all the pretty under things . I do think one should have the bras that have the model name as yours right ? I really would feel glamorous in a ivy bra made just for me hahaha .some day I need to get past my fear and order a comexim .

      DressTheTwins: That's it!! Thank you so much for the link. :)

      Klilly3: I got the 3HC in size 60L with the straps moved in 3cm, overlapping wires and pockets (only because the fabric is so soft and luxurious; I can't ever "use" the pockets, but I get them anyway because I love the softness). I also asked if they could use more narrow wires because I always end up with too much empty space on the sides and I need it in the center, for projection, instead. They did some bras like this for me in the past (Poison Ivy was one of them) and it solved the issue; no more wasted fabric at my sides and enough room in the cup so my gore sits perfectly flat the way it should. It also helps the wires stay in my crease and follow my root closely. I just hope they remembered to use the more narrow wire on my Jade too. Hope this helps. :)

      Isn't that lace just gorgeous?! I do love Comexim's unique and creative designs. I'm looking forward even more now to getting my Poison Ivy plunge - please, oh please, let it fit me!

    • 1

      This looks so pretty in the halfcup! Love how much of the lace covers the cups, compared with the plunge.

    • 1

      I agree, I think it's stunning. The plunge is stunning in it's own right, but I'm a huge sucker for hunter green lace.

    55HH

    Fits

    Yay! My Comexim bra has finally arrived! I fell in love with this bra after seeing lcl0706 's review of it, but I waited a month before ordering..and then a month and a half later, I received it!
    I did order some customizations. A * denotes that I'm not sure if the alteration was applied.
    -Extra reduced gore
    -Reduced cups*
    -Straps moved in 1cm*
    -Narrowed gore*
    -3 hooks
    -Thicker straps
    - Cookie Pockets
    It gives the most amazing lift, and I get fabulous cleavage, which is partially due to the cups being too small. I may have to try future Comexims in 55J as all of the 55HH's I own are a smidge too small.
    This is exactly the kind of bra I need though. Vertical seams, low(ish) gore, and thick straps. The wires are medium narrowish and slightly stiffer than the plunges I own. Pretty overjoyed as I got this custom made bra for only $38 shipped. I will definitely be purchasing more 3HC cuts in the future.

      Beautiful! :) Oh I'll need that extra reduced gore as well, great idea! :D

    • 1

      Nml817 My thought exactly. :-)

    • 2

      Yes that was the only alteration I *absolutely* needed to get this :) The others are a bonus haha. Tall gores are uncomfortable for me since it sits on my breast tissue and can get itchy or really painful.

    • Ooh it's pretty Noob . I would say if the reduced cup was done, you don't need it and do a regular 55HH. If it wasn't done, do a 55J. The verdict is out on whether Anna will reduce half cups. But reduced cup + moving the straps in will make the cup fit like the next size down.

    • 1

      Oooh, so pretty! It's almost like a half cup plunge hybrid with the gore reduced like this. Seeing this, I might try this alteration on a 3HC too in the future, it might be the way for me to have a Comexim plunge without ordering an actual plunge model (the really don't work for me).

      I have an unaltered 3HC Poison Ivy on the way. Seeing this makes me really look forward to getting it!

    • Please indicate the customizations on the alterations field of the bra. You'll find them when you add the bra to the site or later on the measurements screen. It is important so measurements aren't confused with other alteratoins.

    60HH

    Didn't fit

    I am SO, so sad!I was waiting for the pioson ivy for 6 whole weeks, and now it doesn't fit like my comexim beauty 3HC at all! :(

    I did ask for the following alterations:
    -reduced centre gore
    -reduced cup hight
    -straps moved in
    -cookie pockets
    -2x4 rows of hooks

    I did get:
    -straps moved in
    -cookie pockets
    -3x3rows of hooks
    -overlapping gore

    Actually I don't seem to need the reduced centre gore, so thats fine!
    When I'm not taking pictures the sides go pretty high under my arms, but well, I can live with this.That way at least I won't be wearing it like 10 days in a row^^

    Anyway, this would all still be ok!
    BUT ... this bra feels way more shallow, then my beauty 3HC! Is it because of the cookie pockets? (No cookies!) Or did they maybe use the wrong underwires? (they are 13,5cm wide, compared to the underwires of the beauty with only 12,7 cm)
    I am so sad!
    This bra is so beautyfull but so uncomfortable!!! :(
    It doesn't have enough space near the underwires and slides down untill it sits uncomfortably on my ribs.

    Ugh, I am just so sad and disappointed!!

    Edit: just realized this has 4x3 rows of hooks!

    Edit2: after bending the wires it fits way better! thank God!! (I was verry close to crying because it didn't fit!!)

      There seems to have been quite a few 3HCs that feel shallower than they should lately. Odd that your band is loose, both my PIs have had tight bands. Did you try to bend the underwires narrower? Might help.

      All that aside, I think this is too small for you overall.

    • Ugh, exasperating. It's really hard to order with wildly aberrant band sizes. I contacted Anna about mine but she hasn't got back to me. P Ivy is a really pretty half cup, though!

    • 1

      Through Jaimie at @Bra Obsessed, I have asked Anna to create a more immediately projected bra. Anna is "thinking about it." If you feel like it, send her a similar request. The more of us asking for change, the more likely she will create a more projected design.

      I ordered three new 65K 3HCs and sold one 65K that "wasn't quite projected enough." The three newest 65Ks were so shallow I had to re-purchase the "not quite projected enough" 65K from the person I sold it to.

      I measured the bands before I wore them: same length. As I stretched one of the new 65Ks around my bosom, knowing the band was plenty long, the threads snapped in two locations. This is the first time in 85 bras I've broken threads.

      I did try a two sizes too small half padded style. Surprisingly, it may work: it had more immediate projection. And, I've ordered two E.M. CH nursing bras that I will alter to fit.

      It is...frustrating, maddening, and causes me to buy more beautiful bras. Sigh. I hope something changes soon.

    • lcl0706 yes it is definatelly tol small in terms of cup deepth, but I am afraid to order 60J, because yours has like 3cm more cup deepth then mine! (And yours seems to me the perfect size for me :/ )
      How to I bend them narrower?

      @letstalkaboutbras yes it is so pretty! :)

      @DressTheTwins thats a good idea! I might send her an email to ask what bra has most immediate projection and explain my fit problems to her.

      Do you think I can ask her if they might have accidentally used the wrong wires or is this to offensive?

    • DressTheTwins I was just going to place a new order and your comment has me debating it now ... Come to think of it, I did notice that your 65K for sale seemed shallow enough for me; the only reason I didn't buy was because of the cup height. If I have to go up to K to get the volume I need and can't reduce the height on a half cup, I'm out of luck :(

    • 1

      letstalkaboutbras You and I have a similar predicament. Sigh.

    • 1

      BronteBeach pleeeeeaaase take the Sonia I have listed. it's too big for me and I think it would be perfection on you! seriously! I think you need that added depth and it's so gorgeous. This PI looks too small all over. You bend wires by gently pressing inward on each side of them until they measure narrower. Comexims are easy to bend.

    • lcl0706 thx for the advice how to bend the wires! I always thought they would just go straight back in there position! I did bend them and now the bra feels waaaay better!! Thank you so much!! I hope it will stay this way during the evening! :)
      I will try to bend the wires on my chp, if it doesnt work would you like to exchange it with the sonja? :)

    • I already have this exact same bra, same size & everything! I'm really needing to destash stuff that doesn't fit. But I bet you could sell it easily, PI is a popular bra

    • If you decide to order a new size, I'd do that sooner than later because I know they're low on fabric for it. The reduced gore alteration is really slight. I have a picture of my Sonia's with and without it and I'm surprised you can visually tell it wasn't reduced. I was under the impression they don't reduce cup height on half cups, but that moving in the straps makes the cups fit a little smaller. The band sizes are pretty inconsistent there, so I just order a 55 and take it in need be.

      lcl0706 I was talking about my Ewa Michalak CHP you mailed me about a couple of weeks ago ;)
      The pioson ivy fits good after bending the wires (at least for the last 3 hours, so I have hope! :) )

      @girl333 I think I'll stick to this one :)
      I have three 3HC bras size 60HH and the other 2 are obviously not as high as this one! I will add pictures if you are interested :)

    • 1

      I have several 3HCs as well and the gores all vary a lot...most of mine are reduced gore. A reduced gore is only bc a few cms. I'd check the measurements on the other pioson Ivys in that size. Bending the wires should work for you though. I did it in my VS bras pre abtf.

    65J

    Fits

    So happy with this bra! As compared to the plunge version of Pioson Ivy, the half cup really emphasizes the shimmery emerald lace. Anything vaguely reminiscent of magical forest fairies or mermaids is totally my jam in lingerie, so I continue to love this design :)

    The fit is pretty close to perfect. The cups are taller than my Anna Pardal Lady Grey 3HC in the same size, and I do get some outward-turning of the cups when not standing totally straight. Likely this would be remedied by moving in the straps, but then I'd need to go up a cup size as this ... 65J volume is perfect otherwise. The overlapping gore is super narrow and tacks nicely, rare for me in Comexim! I didn't have the same luck with the 65J - Comexim ยป Sonia Half Cup (406) I tried earlier this year, so I had written off Comexim 3HCs for awhile... now, I'll definitely be looking into more. This bra gives a beautiful round shape and subtle cakes on a plate cleavage. It's smooth, versatile and flattering under clothes... really a beautiful piece considering the cost.

    75J

    Didn't fit

    I ordered this bra in a 3HC cut, in 75J, because my other 3HC (the Beauty) in 75HH is just a smidgen too small in the cup.

    This bra is a little too big (I'm the goldilocks of bras), but with some fiddling around it works for me.

    The band is tight, easily the tightest 75 band I ever came across. It's smaller than some of my 32 Cleos, but an extender will fix that.

    The cups are not only bigger and taller than the Beauty's, but also more open on top, and a slightly different shape. This bra has more space at the gore than the Beauty, and as a ... result the cups gap on me. I can fix the gapping with swooping and scooping very carefully, tightening the straps, and wearing inserts from my Ewa Pl that I had lying around.

    The shape of these cups will work very well for people with a lot of centre fulness, or very close set breasts, and for people who are very FoT.

    The look of the bra is lovely, very romantic, and it is very well made.
