This was another one of the highly customized Comexim bras I ordered during the Halloween sale. (Yes, they literally took 8 weeks to arrive - yay Canada). Rosette is listed on the Comexim side as a 2HC, but I wanted it desperately it in a plunge. (I am a little nervous about ordering a Comexim half cup as I am not sure about the size I would need or how it compares to my beloved plunges.) Ordering Rosettes in a plunge style was a breeze. I requested to have the straps moved in by 2cms and the gore narrowed. From what I can tell, the gore ...is lowered but not narrowed and the straps are in their original position. These customizations were requested for comfort and don't seem to be a dealbreaker on the fit for me. However, this is good evidence of the bratabase hypothesis that the more customizations you request the less likely they are all to be completed. Thankfully it was made as a plunge - the request I cared most about.
I ordered this bra in 60HH and the matching panty in size small. The set is stunning - the green and gold are so vibrant in person - and the embroidery is really intricate. The strap detailing on this bra really adds to its charm. My husband is a big fan of this set. Based on looks alone, this set is hands-down the prettiest I've ever owned. The fit is pretty great too. The cups are narrow and perfectly projected. But they do seem to be a little shorter than other 60HHs. This doesn't compromise the fit too much but does allow for more cleavage than I usually like. There is not much wiggle room for growth, so I am hoping it will continue to fit. The band is supremely comfortable and true to size. Overall, Rosettes is a winner and I am delighted.

I have admired this bra forever and am so happy to finally own one! It is stunning! The colour is a gorgeous deep teal with gold lace and embroidery in a pattern that reminds me of dandelions that have gone to seed. I was a bit worried about the size but it's actually pretty good- a great fit on my smaller side so I consider it a win. It stretches to 28" so it runs slightly small for a 65 band. The cups are deep and narrow and not too tall. They also taper in nicely on top. Straps are softly brushed on the underside and have a double strap design for about an inch and a half where they join the cups.

Runs pretty shallow with a lot of space on the sides. However I have a lot of immediate projection on the bottom and sides and the gore still sits on my sternum. The band is not that tight compared to my other 30" bras. The construction seems pretty solid and I like that there are three hooks.
