I guess the first review on Bratabase! So... The bra looks amazing! every detail, every piece of fabric, eyelash style and the 'C' between cups - love it! The band is so soft and comfortable! Also the straps are fully adjustable. Although, I've seen review of Sonia and i have the same issue with too wide wires (its not that big as was lcl0706 in Sonia but still, would prefer more narrow). Also the band is quite stretchy (I've requested 4x2, and easily can close on no2-3). I think to reorder it in Sonia style with 2 vertical seams and ask if they could work out for me narrower wires.
I bought this thinking the eyelash lace would be more dramatic in the half-cup than it is in my plunge. Nope. In this case it's my build and not the bra. Cup height is the same as my plunge, so it doesn't change anything.
The bra is gorgeous and the band is more TTS than my plunge. I find this cut a bit too shallow and more minimizing than I'd like, so I'm going to keep my plunge for now and list this one.
Oh my this bra is beautiful. The cream/tan fabric is overlaid with navy floral lace with an eyelash lace fringe. The band fits pretty true to size (stretches to 27.5") and the straps are fairly wide, comfortable and easy to adjust. I've wanted it for a long time. It is a decent fit, but a bit too small on my larger side so I get a bit of quad boob. Also, it kind of flattens and spreads my breasts so that they look larger and wider from the front and taller and flatter from the sides. It doesn't bother me a lot, as it's still pretty comfy, but I do prefer a narrower, more streamlined look from the front and a more projected side profile. My breasts are short and narrow rooted, soft and pendulous, very projected just above the wire, and bottom & centre full.
I forgot the 2 part half cups existed when exchanging for this bra. It's definitely true that they're shallower at the bottom than the three part half cups - I can see creases in the bottom of the cups where they weren't being filled when I take it off. The fit is alright aside from that, but not being in my IMF makes it annoying enough that I'd rather pass it on for something that fits better.
Oh, how I wish this fit! I ordered a custom band in 100 and it stretches to 42". My other 100 band from Comexim stretches to 40.5". How could this be? This image (https://www.instagram.com/p/BIh9CqojtgJ/?taken-by=roxannelovesbras) shows clearly just how longer the band is in comparison without stretching. At least 3-4 inches. Just when I thought I had nailed down my size I get this! A 95 band direct from them stretches to 38.5" so that's a difference of 3.5" from 95 to 100. Crazily inconsistent. That's way too much. A bra that was supposed to fit is now ill fitting. The too large band makes the ...gore unable to tack and as for the cups I usually have a bit of gape at the top because I'm not full on the top. This I can live with if it's negligible but on my small side it is not negligible anymore even with tightening the strap way up. A G cup is just about fitting so an H should fit just fine but too large band causes the cups to not sit properly.
I am torn about contacting Comexim - will they do anything about it given it was a customization? Not sure. Perhaps I'll try and report back. Really wish this fit - the bra itself is fantastic!
EDIT TO ADD 8/2/2016: Comexim has said there is a mistake and they will remake the bra. So far, so good! Hoping to have the proper size shortly and will update again. Read more 143 more words
