This is my first purchase through Bratabase (yay) and my first Polish bra. I'm waiting for an order from Comexim and an Anna Pardal via Sophisticated Pair.
The bra is gorgeous and unusual - gray-silver-taupe lace over a subtle peach base that is almost a nude for me. It gives a beautiful boobs-forward, cakes on a plate effect. It is a plunging style, but not as low as, for example, Freya Deco. This band is quite soft (and comfortable) and thus not especially supportive for the long haul. Were I to buy new, I would size down (I typically wear 32G in most bras, more like 30GG in Freya). Finally, the bra + band, for me, is not 'motion reducing'. There is a considerable bounce, which I am certain will be entertaining to onlookers, but it makes the bra not work-friendly for me. Maybe save for shorter evenings out and times when I know I will be sashaying and strolling and not moving quickly!
I did it!! This is the first bra I have that FITS!! (But Bratabase won’t let me mark it that way).
Without the straps drawn in toward my neck, every fit parameter is PERFECT. Literally like it was shaped custom for my body!! The straps are easy to adjust and thick, the lace and color is GORGEOUS, and fabric is breathable and stylish. But, I enter my fit data based on how the straps are when drawn in toward my neck (how they’d be if they were multiway).
With the straps drawn in, the wings cut into my armpits by being too tall, though the wire doesn’t bother me ...in the slightest. If the fabric softened up enough, that issue might resolve itself. Potentially, styles that aren’t as lacy might not have this issue at all. Maybe even trying half-cups would be a good idea, since they’d come up less high. The gore also becomes a little too short and a little too narrow, though as you can see from the pictures, it has a partially overlapping gore, so perhaps one without this feature will be perfect. Additionally, the band becomes slightly too tight and the lace itches a tad in the back, but I think this is merely a function of it being a lacy bra, and therefore having less stretch than a non-lace bra.
All that being said, it still isn’t comfortable enough for everyday wear in the condition it’s in. Without being able to multiway, it’ll eventually kill my bad shoulder, and I am way too scared of that alteration to attempt it myself (and have no idea where I could take it to have that done). For now, my project will be keeping my ear to the ground to find someone who can convert the straps. Even in the mean time though, I think this could be a great stepping stone for me in terms of finding a bra that does fit and is comfortable enough for everyday wear. Read more 224 more words
The band is tight, but fits somewhere between a British (like Cleo) band 28 and 30. This band seems closer to TTS than my Comexim Beauty Plunge in 65J---I have to wear an extender because that band is too tight. So, I'm not sure where to go on my next Comexim order as far as band size.
The cups are wonderfully narrow and allows for inner fullness. Somehow, this bra works great under tees and light-colored tops, almost like a neutral. Much prettier than any beige bra though. Fits me much better than a similar-sized Anna Pardal. ... I don't fall into the middle like I do with her plunges.
I ordered this from Zathiya and it only has 2 hooks. I also have a Comexim Beauty Plunge in 65J that I ordered from Braobsessed. The Beauty has 3 hooks. I prefer the 3 hooks. Not sure why this one only has 2 and I don't have enough Comexims to know which version is standard.
For reference, these days I'm also fitting into: EM 65GG S-styles, 28GG Freya Decos, 28GG Cleo Marcie and 30GG Panache Jasmine. I'm narrow, projected with even fullness and short roots. Read more 101 more words
This is my first Comexim bra and I sister sized to a 75F(34:6) rather than an 70G(327) which is supposed to fit a 32F(UK). The measured bands seemed to run tight, and I'm glad I did. When I measured the stretched band it ran just under 32" before the wire started to bend as well. It's narrow enough and fits really well. The peach and pale grey color works well with my fair skin and I'm able to wear it under light/white shirts without the color showing through. The only thing is that there's a bit of space between my root and the top of the cup where ...the cup meets the strap, but it's so negligible and doesn't cause wrinkling or discomfort. This happens to me with most plunges since I have fairly short roots. For this reason, I wouldn't be able to wear it as a strapless. I think I might try a half cup from Comexim next time.
Edit: After wearing the bra a few times, I realized it doesn't offer as much projection as I need and the wires keep getting pushed out of my IMF. The height of the cup also bothers me after a while. I'll definitely try their half cups since I hear they have more projection and will work better with my short roots. Read more 113 more words
I was looking forward to this bra for so long and I finally pick it up from the post office today after missing the delivery on Saturday. I rush home to try it on, I get it out of the box and it's beautiful. I got to try it on and it doesn't fit, the band runs a size small and due to a bit of growth the the cups are too small, 65G has always been a bit on the edge of fit for me, and I was worried about this since some of my other Comexims weren't fitting right anymore, but the Sonia is ...worse than any of those on me. I did get the straps moved in 2cm on this although due to the it not fitting well at all and having a ton of quad I can't judge if I like that or not, I also got it with 3 hooks instead of the usual 2. In addition to the bra not fitting I got matching panties and I ordered the wrong size having forgotten I need a medium in Comexim panties and not a small. I will most likely be listing both the bra and panties, If the band was more TTS I might hold on to it for bit and see if I go back down in size.
I did also order a Basic and it seems to be an okay fit I got a 65H with reduced cups, trying it out for a bit to see if it will work.
Update: I swapped a bra and got a Sonia half cup in 75G, the band runs small and fits like a small 70 which works pretty well since I'm between a 65/70. The 3 part half cup works really well for me as well. Since I hadn't sold the panties, once I knew I was getting another Sonia I decided to hang on to them. They are a bit on the small side, but aren't uncomfortable. I did place another Comexim order and added a pair of medium panties which I think will fit better. Read more 251 more words
Admittedly it is not perfect, but its very cute and the closest to a good fit I've had in a very long time, so I'm definitely going to keep it! I really just purchased this bra to serve as a jumping off point for ordering customized ones straight from Comexim (this one was from Zathiya Lingerie so I would have an easier time returning it if it wasn't close enough to want to keep).
The band fits well, so I have no complaints there. It was nice to see that there were 4 columns of hooks rather than the 3 that tend to be on many ...bras.
The gore tacks, but it is lower than I'd like which causes it to be a little bit pokey. The next Comexim bra I buy, I will definitely ask for a raised gore height.
The cup fit is definitely the biggest draw to this bra for me. The first thing I'll draw attention to are the underwires. They are narrower than any other bra I've tried, which is perfect for me because I have pretty narrow roots. It also has a good projection, and I don't have any spillage in the center. The only minor cup complaint is that there is a little bit of extra space at the top of the cup near the strap (I seem to have this issue quite often). I was able to get rid of this almost completely by tightening the straps up a bit more than I usually do, and it's not something you notice under a shirt. I plan to have the cup height reduced and the straps moved in on the next one I order, which should hopefully help.
Overall, the only little complaints I have are that the gore pokes me a bit and the part of the cup near the strap is a bit looser than I'd like (and the straps are maybe set a bit wider than I'd like). These are things I can definitely live with and its a HUUUGE improvement from most of the other bras I've tried. Read more 240 more words
I got this along with 65G - Comexim » Victoria Plunge Bra , and this one fits much better. The band is looser, fits me without an extender. There is minimal quad on the bigger side so thats not an issue at all. straps are nice and comfy, however id prefer narrower set for more comfort. Overal I really like this bra, however im still tempted to try it as a 3hc with few modifications : )
First, a bit about my breast shape for reference: significantly narrow, FOB, projected, pendulous, significantly short roots, significantly center-heavy.
I can't tell if this bra is just a smidgen too large overall, or the cups are too tall. The band is significantly stretcher than I anticipated, certainly more so than a Ewa Michalak, and as such I think that I perhaps should have sister sized down. (My snug underbrush is 31" and I'm quite squishy, if that helps.) I can fasten it on the tightest hook comfortably, but the underwire tends to warp when I swoop-and-scoop on this setting. Perhaps I'm just over-scooping - as I said, ...I'm squishy. The cups come up high enough to conceal my pronounced Tail Of Spence, which is lovely, but there are empty pockets on both sides between the bottom of my Tail Of Spence and the top edge of my breast root that gets larger as the day goes on and I settle in to the bra. Thankfully, there is no visible gapping under shirts. As a bonus, however, I get a bit of cleavage (because this is a plunge style I believe and my breasts settle comfortably to the center) and the bra is colored such that it is totally invisible under my shirts.
It's the most comfortable bra I own at this point and is the closest I have to fitting so I will keep and continue wearing it, but it isn't The One for a shape like mine. Read more 142 more words
My Stats: FOB, projected, close set, firm and dense tissue. Size: Normally 28FF, got this in a 28FF
Bra Stats Appearance: plunge style bra that is salon colored with greyish lace and tan/brown colored bows.
Cups: regular projected cups with narrow wires. The cups are tall for my FOB shape and ended up sliding down to get a better fit. I should have gone up a size or 2 in this bra because the wire sits on breast tissue on my larger side and there is some quadding as well.
Band: it's a pretty solid band however, it gets stretchy pretty quickly
Gore: gore is of mid height and tacks
Straps: average distance apart. Not as wide as the Ewa Michalak straps.
Shape Under Clothing: round shape. I really like the shape the Sonia provides under clothes. It's not too in your face. The padding level is just right where I feel protected from nip slips but not so thick that I have to think about what shirt I'm wearing.
