I received the Comexim Irish Coffee in a 60K from a fellow blogger (and shipping was wicked fast whoa!) and it is the first somewhat-molded/padded bra I’ve had in roughly my size. This was also exactly what I thought would be perfect: it was altered to have shorter cups, a lower gore, and to have the straps moved in. Checking details about cup depth and whatnot led me to believe this beautiful bra could be my new, wonderful bosom buddy.
First, I have to tell you that I love this bra. The underwires are PERFECT. DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW PERFECT?! It is actually IN my IMF. I have never had that luxury before. It feels like joy and happiness and joy again. It’s like the makers measured where my boobs are and went, “Okay, we thought it over and after a long debate, decided NOT to place the wires an inch or further away from your roots… This time.”
So, the underwires are finally in a respectable position. This is good news – I have never had this experience in all my bras. Look at how gorgeous it is from the front, too! The bows look great in that salmon-pink color, and there’s a little charm at the gore. I feel like I could match this bra to a belly button ring quite easily.
Alas, there are some problems. (Are you surprised though…c’mon.)
There is an apex in this bra that is, you know, up where I don’t have breast tissue. It’s up in the outer corners. I think this is anticipating a taller boob. Mine are a bit shorter than they expected. I wonder how much shorter the cups would have to be to work? This was already altered. Can I request they take it down like two inches or is that a bit much…
I wonder if this is because this is technically a 28H, where I am closer to a 28G. I’m not sure about this because the lower parts are accommodating my center fullness, and my larger boob is very very close to quadding out in that area. I am expecting another Comexim in a 60J, so we’ll see if that changes anything.
Until that time, I actually am still quite fond of this piece. I would like to try it in a 60J. But I’m a bit skeptical that that size would be the right thing, at the same time, because then I’ll be quadding over in the middle. I guess we’ll have to see. I want to have this bra work, though, so badly.
What do I like about this bra that makes me want it to work?
Perfect underwires. Sophisticated yet sweet design. VERY comfortable gore and band. Perfectly placed straps. These are things that are actually pretty alien to me.
Let’s rate this beauty because Comexim has won over my complete attention. It has lots of things working for it, even if I don’t consider myself a padded/moulded bra sort of person.
Appearance of bra itself (10/10)—Understated with the right amount of bling. I love the color combination, here – I think it looks like a dessert. Like I could eat this bra. Or, maybe, drink it. The lace has a more crochet feel that I expected, but I surprisingly like it better for that.
Appearance of bra on my body (7/10)—Lifts everything and sits basically in the right places, but I have to take points off for that gap on the top. I feel like my boobs are sitting in there and looking up at the outside world through that gap, wondering what it is like outside of their chocolatey, padded cave.
Straps (10/10)—A tiny bit stretchy and I actually think they’re a wee bit too long. I can adjust them properly, but they’re basically tightened all the way. Despite that, the straps are EXTREMELY COMFY and are placed so well that nothing is rubbing my armpits.
Band (10/10)—Very very comfortable and seems right. It’s a comfy 28 band, basically.
Gore (10/10)—Perfect height – doesn’t hurt me at all. I love this gore!
Underwire (10/10)—RIGHT WHERE IT NEEDS TO BE. I WANT TO SHOUT THIS OUT TO EVERYBODY I KNOW.
Cups (5/10)—Too damn TALL!!! Why? They would be perfect otherwise. The K perfectly holds my inner fullness and I don’t have to worry about anything coming out that way, but that tops… Whyyyy….
Overall rating, then? Irish Coffee gets…
89% – Damn girl, that’s almost an A!! That’s the highest rating I’ve given!
So… Did you know that I like Comexim now…? Well, did you?
