Bra fitting help » Cups collapse at the bottom
Comexim » Basic Plunge Bra (170) » 60K 28:11
The band is too tight, which was pulling the wires tighter and flattening the cups. I will try an extender or a bigger band.
This is a Basic nursing bra from Breakout Bras. I contacted them and they said it is the same cut as other Comexim plunges with no alterations. It should be a Comexim 60K if I have my size conversion correct.
The bra is most comfortable with the straps loosened all the way, but after taking these pictures I noticed that the collapsing is a lot worse than I thought. Tightening the straps enough that this doesn't happen (as much) results in the main photo.
I know Comexim plunges are not known for their immediate projection, but does it look like I could possibly fit in them in a different size? There are some 60Ls listed that I have my eyes on, but I want to know what others think before trying a size that might be hard to sell.

That degree of creasing/collapse at the base of the cup is usually only seen when the band is much too tight, which appears to be the case here. If you have not changed size in either torso or bust and routinely wear 60s from Comexim perhaps the fabric on this one lacks give compared to other designs--I know it is notorious for running small in cups already so an overly tight band really would not help matters. Try an extender to get a better sense of this cup's shape and size for you!
If your body measurements are up to date, tentatively I would say that you do need at least 1 cup size larger, but I might suggest trying a different design since this one tends to run small, and certainly going no smaller than a 65 in band (70 would likely be perfect if you wear 30 bands in Freya). It's hard to judge from these pics but you do appear to have a nice amount of fullness in the upper outer breast quadrant, which could be a good match for Comexim plunges (in the correct size). The most common complaint about them in larger cup sizes is that people cannot fill the outer half of the plunge cup because it is cut so tall and generous, but I think in your case this would be a good feature.
