It was still too big in the cup, and either too tall or too open. I took 2 triangle sections out making it a 3HC instead of 2HC, and it fits much better. It's now wearable though a little minimizing from the side profile. But it's so pretty I just want to wear it!
This bra is sadly just "meh" on me. I was excited to try another Comexim, but it's just... Ok. Compared to a couple other bras with super close measurements, this one looks and feels wider and shallower. Band is stretched out so feels ok on the second to last hook, and wires are permanently wider than I like right now. My boobs stick out barely more than my ribs, which for me I don't like. (I want projection!!) Straps would definitely need to be pulled in for me standing naturally (not shoulders back). Somehow the cup is too tall for me, which is like ??? Then again it ...could just be the fact that the straps are being pushed forward by my armpits. Overall the cup feels like it's just sitting around my boobs, and slightly squishing in my apex, rather than scooping and swooping my boobs front and center. And sadly, I just didn't fall in love with the colors in person. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Lace is pretty, colors in photos are so pretty, but in person and on me... Meh. Fit is meh. Maybe a brand new Comexim in this size would be more narrow and projected, one of these days I'll have to take a crack at ordering one myself! I don't know why I want Comexim to work for me so badly haha. Read more 122 more words
So the Victoria, besides being beautiful, is so so so comfortable. I've only worn it twice now but the first time I wore it all day and never even noticed it. The second I noticed the wires at the bottom a bit, but I have zero padding there and I never sit with correct posture so I'm sure that is not helping. The gore tacks and the wires seem to follow my IMF perfectly.
I have a few complaints but I think I might have to just get over them. There's some gaping at the top of the cup, which I think might be unavoidable with my short roots. ...I also get some minor quadding at the center which shows up after I settle in but I loosened the straps a bit for the second wear and it seems to have fixed that problem. This particular bra has some weird indents in the cups just below where the straps attach, almost like they're pulling too tight, but they don't go away with loosening unless there's absolutely no tension on the straps at all. The cups are also empty from these indents to the wire and puckering slightly. I got this as a swap and the previous owner mentioned the same thing so I think it might just be a defect rather than a size or shape issue. The wire marks are right at the edge of my IMF so it's like there extra fabric, not that it's too big. Last thing is it seems to make me a little wider than I'd prefer and it has a little of a minimizing effect. I'd like a little more front and center if possible. I have to start this on the second (of 4) hooks and I'm debating moving to the third so I'm wondering if I should ultimately go to the 65 band. Read more 204 more words
I liked Victoria for quite some time and finally odered it. It looks great, but I don't think I'm a huge fan of the eyelash lace. Also the edge where the eyelash lace attaches closes of the cup a bit more and creates a bit of quad boob, not bad and it might not be noticeable in photos, but it's there.

Sooooooo pretty. Much more beautiful in person. I wish I had ordered 80L or more supportive band. The band is made of one layered powernet, so that it is quite stretchier than other models like Elena or Angelina. Usually I order one or two size bigger in the comexim band but this fits like tts, 38. And the cups are usual comexim size. Very narrow and deep. I asked narrowed and lowered gore to avoid the floating gore issue and it worked.

This bra is beautiful and well-constructed. It offers quite a lot of immediate projection and quite a lot of overall depth. The wires are nice and narrow! I'd say it best fits an even to slightly full on bottom top shape, though the foam is pretty flexible so it could vary. The eyelash lace looks wonderful and isn't scratchy or irritating in the slightest, I don't even notice it when I'm wearing it.
I have quite firm tissue and a bunch of centre fullness, so the gore on this bra does not tack. However, I have bent the gore inwards (the wires are very soft) and it comes much ...closer to tacking now. The bra is still secure and supportive so I don't mind this. When I press the gore fully in I get some slight quadboobing (I seem to have grown again...) so a cup size up may have been a good idea (then again it may not have been as the quadding is only slight), but it's a moot point as the gore doesn't tack anyway. I'd suggest figuring out your Comexim size through a returnable site like @Wellfitting, then ordering direct from @Comexim from then on.
I ordered this bra directly from Comexim and it took just over a month to arrive (though the post in my area is quite slow). The only alterations I ordered were the size (55L is a custom size) and the 2 seamed shape. When it arrived, I noticed the band has 4 columns of 3 hooks (which is amazing) and the wire channels overlap at the gore. I didn't order this but it happened and frankly both of these things are great!
The bra arrived in a cardboard box in very good condition. The eyelash lace was folded over the cup on one side, so it has a tendency to curl under, but I suspect this will stop after I wash it. The only construction issues I see are a few threads sticking out of the inside of the gore that at first glance look like a wire's about to stick through, but it isn't. There are one or two loose threads on the bra otherwise but I can easily cut them off. It's a lot better than offerings from UK brands which come in at the same price or even higher - and this bra is covered in lace in comparison to their much plainer ones!
All in all it is a great bra and I thoroughly recommend it! Read more 308 more words
