I have been having trouble nailing down the sizing for the Wellfitting Unicorn Classic Demi so Joanna over at Wellfitting sent me two Liftsational Classic Demi in 28R and 30R to try out. She told me that since they use European cup sizing (2 cm instead of 1 inch), the calculator is very off for small band/big cup sizes. To get the necessary 13” of depth that I’d need in a bra, I would have to go with their R cup.
The bra is very well constructed and is a lovely silky material. It feels very soft. The wires are narrow, and the bottom of the cups fit well, especially on my larger side. The only issue is the top of the cups and the strap separation. The cups are comically tall for my lack of tissue, they measure 9” high. The straps are very wide and I have to halter neck them to not rub against my tail of spence. I would really like to know what percentage of people can wear this bra unaltered.
Me: Narrow roots, narrow shoulders, evenly round, lots of immediate projection, very soft tissue, slightly FoB, slightly centre full, splayed, never met a gore I didn't like, left-heavey by more than a cup size, 31" underbust, but prefer tight band with extender. Panache, Freya size 30GG
Nicely narrow immediately projected well padded cups. Still getting a little creasing at the bottom of the cup so not quite enough immediate projection. Ribbed, fully adjustable wide straps and three hooks. Straps set a touch too wide.
Overlapping narrow centre gore, but only just tall enough for me not to fall out of. Tacks, ...but could sit tighter. Essentially functions like a plunge for me. Fairly average half cup height. I'd prefer a little more height at the gore and probably the cups too - but that is for soft tissue. Accepts centre fullness as is, but not sure it would with a little more height. No side boning but good tall wings.
Band is pretty loose (no extender and on column three of four) but cups are pretty small.
Edit Alteration: I moved the right strap in 2 cm and the left strap in 1 cm. Rubbing under the arms has stopped and assymetry is corrected. I can't raise the centre gore myself and I can't change the immediate projection. Read more 127 more words
Wellfitting orders from Comexim, and it shows. This bra is gorgeous, comfortable, well constructed, and very very supportive. Unfortunately the cups are too tall/I need to go down a cup size or so for it to really fit-the cups project up over my bust. I am admittedly very short rooted, though, so I don't think this would be an issue for someone with taller roots.
What a lovely bra! The fabric is beautiful, and I love the golden ribbon along the top of the cup. It seems open enough for my FOT shape, and the cup is definitely deep enough. There's enough immediate projection for my pendulous breasts, and the whole bra is very comfortable. Unfortunately, the gore just doesn't tack! I don't know if its the soft wires, or if my breasts are too close-set and are pushing it out a bit. I get a soft tack, but as a result there's gaping in the top of the cup. When I push the gore firmly against my sternum, the cup depth seems about right. So close, and yet so far!
This bra is really nice and high quality, exactly what one would expect from a bra manufactured by Comexim. It fits like any of their 3HCs. Despite the ribbon along the top edge, the bra is pretty open on top and would probably work for even/FOT shapes. Since I'm FOB with short roots, I might see if they'll make it with reduced cups next time. Wellfitting won't overlap the gore on this model, which was surprising to me since Comexim is willing to do that alteration on their halfcups, but that's not a dealbreaker for me.
Now that I've thoroughly nitpicked the fit, let me balance that out by ...saying it's a nearly perfect fit on me. This is a great choice for narrow, projected breasts, and the band is TTS. It's so nice to find a company that sells 26 bands as a non-custom option.
It's also worth noting that this is probably the most beautiful beige bra I've ever owned. The shimmery fabric and lovely details combine to make a bra that's simple and elegant.
This is the first bra that gives me cleavage! It makes me look a bit wide under certain shirts, but there is still some nice separation and great lift, and the apices of my breasts are front and center thanks to the narrow wires and overlapping gore. This is the most supportive bra I've ever worn. The vertical seams show through a bit under t shirts, but I've decided that it's worth it and helps counteract the east/west appearance. The wires are soft and pliable which is wonderful. At the end of the day, the bottoms of my breasts aren't sore (hurray!) but they do feel a bit ...squashed at the apices - this bra seems a bit too shallow for me at the apices. However, my tissue is pretty soft so this wasn't painful even after a full day of wear, and it's nice to have a more rounded shape than my usual tiny mosquito bite cones (which I reserve for when I'm feeling "natural"). This was projected enough at the wire, though it could have been more so to accommodate my natural shape, I found that the depth tapers off more immediately than my natural shape, helping to lift the tissue more than any other bra I've tried. I hope that makes sense - basically if you're full on bottom but shallow on top with tall roots and soft tissue, I recommend giving this a try! Read more 130 more words
I had a feeling this bra wouldn't fit but I needed to know some things about Comexim's 3HC cut.
Yeah it don't work for me. Despite the band being too long and the cup one size too small, I can tell even in the right size the 3HC lacks apex projection I must have. The apex is too high and there's not enough of it. So even on my small side which should fit this bra, I get a weird lumpy, fold-over on top of my roots thing.
Be aware, immediate projection and apex projection are different, and chances are if you are omega you need both.
The bottom line: If this doesn't work for you, don't give up on Comexim bras in general.
The good: This is a beautiful, neutral colored bra that works very well as a nude with my pale skin tone. The fabric has a lovely sheen to it, the padding is lightweight, and I love the golden ribbon across the top. The immediate projection in this style (the 3HC) is second to none - it is the only bra I've found thus far that stays in my IMF.
Now, I've read quite a few reviews of both Wellfitting and Comexim bras in other sizes, and I'm the first person I've seen ...who finds the bras to fit really differently. I assume this must be because I'm at the far end of their size range. The measurements between a Wellfitting 44J 3HC and a Comexim 44J 3HC are pretty much the same with the exception of gore height (the Comexim is about three quarters of an inch lower), and that could be because the Comexim I have in a 44J is unlined, but they fit really, really differently. I don't think it's just because one is lined and one is unlined, as I tried another padded Comexim 3HC in a 95HH that fit a lot better than either of the Wellfitting bras, as well.
I also find the grading to be really odd in terms of cup width - the width increases a LOT when you go from 100H to 100HH, to the tune of almost three quarters of an inch. The wires being used in the Wellfitting bra also seem much softer than the wires in the two Comexims I've tried.
What this means in practical terms is that if you are in this size range, the Wellfitting 3HC is a perfectly nice bra in its own right, but it is not a way to try a Comexim 3HC without custom ordering. I couldn't get the gores to tack in either of the Wellfitting bras I tried, and I wasn't getting the stability I need with breasts my size and weight. However, having tried Comexims in what ended up being a size too large and a size too small, both bras worked much, much better for me, even though they clearly weren't a proper fit. I ended up keeping the too large one and seriously considered keeping the too small one before passing it on to my sister.
THE TAKEAWAY: It's a 3HC (three-section or two-seam half-cup) with plenty of projection and a very uplifted round shape. A bit too closed on top for my shape, which causes quadding in the HH (my usual size). The jade color is stunning, and the black ribbon embellishment really elevates the design (and was my original motivation for choosing the half-cup instead of the plunge). It's not quite a t-shirt bra, though, because the seams show under thin material. ...
THE DETAILS: A bit frustrating. The 32HH quads, but the gore tacks; here, the gore doesn't quite tack, which results in a bit of gaping on my right side, which in turn impacts the roundness of the fit. (I'm mostly symmetrical, to the point where sometimes it seems like the left is a little bigger, sometimes it seems like the right is...) This could also be being caused by my center-fullness.
Wellfitting's 365 day return policy means I'll be holding onto this bra for a while as I consider the fit (it's so beautiful and so close...), but I think I'll go ahead and send back the 32HH, which is DEFINITELY too small...
ETA: Okay, I'm coming around to thinking this is actually too big in the cups; that as a result, my center fullness is pushing the soft wires out of shape in the middle, causing the gaping and the odd shape.
Alternate solutions: harder wires might make this size work, or a more open cup on the HH, which I think would serve me better in a half cup than it did in the Pl Blekitek I bought the other day. (Too little support when combined with its very low gore; I ran a block or so and then had to stop because it hurt.) Read more 214 more words
