With a few modifications, this bra fits me well. While waiting for this custom order to be made, I got a 60L - Comexim » Ingrid Half Cup which should be a sister size, but was too small on me, so I was pleasantly surprised that this bra actually fit. However, the cups are WAY too wide at 16.5cm, versus the 14.7cm wide cups on the Ingrid. I found this difference bizarre, considering I had sized down, not up in the band, and it makes sense that someone with a narrower rib cage would need narrower, not wider cups. After a few hours of disappointment, ... I decided to try to bend the wires narrower, which was a success! The wires are still not as narrow as I'd like, but are acceptable. I asked for the straps to be moved in 2cm, but they still are way too wide and in my armpits--next time I'll have to request 3cm. I gambled on requesting a 55 band, because I'm really in between a 55 and 60, but I'm glad I did--the band seems very stretchy, and while it measures 55cm exactly, it stretches to 67cm--a huge difference.
While the shape of the 3HC holds my soft tissue in better than the Comexim plunges I've tried to date, I'm not sure yet if I love it. Due to the wider, longer wires and taller wings it just feels like there is a lot more bra going on, a feeling I don't prefer. Also, my breasts are pushed out to the sides, making my frame look wider. I think I'll have to wear it a bit to decide how much I like the style, and if I were to re-order I would try to make sure I got narrower cups and reduced wing height.
I love the color scheme of this bra, and it almost works for nude on me. I was a bit disappointment that the lace didn't extend to the band as it does on some models here on Bratabase, don't know if Comexim changed the design at some point or just got lazy on mine. Its a small thing, but a really nice touch. While I like the peach and gray theme, I would prefer if the back and straps were all one color so that it could read as nude. I realize I'm nitpicking here--overall its a beautiful bra!
