MY SHAPE: Projected, center full, close-set, tall and narrow roots.
THE TAKEAWAY: Ordered as a three-part half cup, this bra has excellent depth. With my stronger-wires narrow-and-overlapped-gore customizations, it handles my center fullness pretty well. Band is very comfortable, possibly to the point where I should be wearing it one hook in. I will measure it and edit this if I'm right.
DETAILS: Super round shape and mondo cakes-on-a-plate, in part because these cups fit me so precisely that they're almost to the point of being a smidge small. The cups are thinner, imho, than in some other Comexims I own, but still thick enough for modesty concerns.
The color is ... a vibrant green that my photos don't do justice, with cornsilk-colored lace that gives a very dandelion impression. The lace definitely keeps this from quite being a t-shirt bra, but an even slightly thicker shirt should be fine, and it's so beautiful. I'm particularly taken with the black accents, and I like the little triangle window in the straps.
I requested the alterations I did because this exact same bra with weaker wires just collapses in the center under the weight of my tissue. It causes a very peculiar fit problem that for a long time had me thinking I needed a K cup -- until I actually tried a couple and discovered that they were HUGE. Oops.
On Comexim's website this bra is actually described as a full cup, which intrigues me, but I've had so much success with the altered 3HC that I'm sticking with it for now.
One very minor note: lately all the bras I've bought from almost anywhere have had a little bit of extra fabric on the end of the rows of hooks, which really increases the comfort when you're on the loosest one. This bra doesn't have that, and I'm a little sad about that. It bumps this down from excellent to good in terms of comfort.
