I got this bra on clearance because it had been tried on for a Wellfitting photoshoot.
MY SHAPE: Narrow, projected, short roots, close set, center full, even fullness (technically FOT but my short roots make me appear even most of the time)... Thinking I may also be low set, which I had never really considered before because my torso is so short it seems like it would be impossible, but lately I've noticed I tend to adjust my straps very long and never have issues with wires coming up too high in my armpits.
FIT: So close! As usual for Comexim/Wellfitting the band is quite snug and the bottom elastic ... hits my rib flare on one side so it does dig in a bit, but I don't think I'd want the band any bigger, plus they only had the one size on clearance so it wasn't really an option. The cups fit beautifully, jus like all my other Comexim plunges, although I seem to be slightly less likely to spill out the center of this one than my 80J - Comexim » Ingrid Plunge Bra (289) and 75J - Comexim » Elena Plunge Bra (315) . The only issue I'm slightly displeased with is the underwire length; they end too soon under my arm, so even though they follow my root and sit in my IMF just fine, my boobs seem to be able to spill over the top of the wire and I get impressive armpit flab in this bra. It's not uncomfortable, and this is a nice plain black bra, so I don't think it'll stop me from wearing this one, just mildly annoying. The hook/loop pieces on the back have razor sharp corners and they become even more prominent when the band is stretched, I'm hoping that this becomes more comfortable after washing or I'll have to keep wearing this with an extender just to protect my back. Unlike my 34K - Wellfitting » Meow Classic Demi (ALSO-KNOWN-AS-CATS) , the cups don't have the extra satin ribbon binding on the edge, so there is no ridge that shows through clothes. There is a smooth line from breast to cup.
APPEARANCE/QUALITY: Not as shiny-satiny as I was expecting based on stock photos; it's more like a black knit. The bows are oversized, but not as oversized as Ewa Michalak. It's very well made and very basic; I have a few tops where I really need something just like this because jewel embellishments show through. In general, I find Wellfitting bras very attractive and well-made, but knowing that it's just a relabeled Comexim puts me off their price tag a bit. The bra would definitely feel more luxurious and worthy of its normal price tag ($65!) if they'd used a satiny smooth material instead of the knit. To be fair, I did just go and look at the website, and I think only the beige and new lavender-grey bras are really touted as being satin, I think I just assumed this one was as well since it is a clone of the beige plunge. The jade and red colorways are clearly this same type of knit.
OVERALL: Decent bra, serves a purpose, glad I didn't pay full price for it!
