Comexim Review: Coco

We have already taken the liberty of reviewing the 60HH Basic. Now, we shall review the other bra I purchased – the Coco. I purchased the Coco in a 60H, reasoning that the cup would run larger because it didn’t have padding. Surprise – that’s incorrect! Boo, brain, you’ve made a fool of me!

So, yes, I have the Coco and she is definitely at least a cup size too small. I am still very impressed with her design and construction, though we are running into obvious problems in fit. My girls are too big to properly fit in this cup, so I’m just popping out of the top. I will note, however, that I really like this half cup thing. It’s an actual half cup. I feel like many brands will say that something is a half cup, but the cup will still be full coverage for me. Damn you, short boobs…

The Coco is an interesting little bra. The lace pattern is really atypical. I’m not even sure what the pattern is supposed to be, but I like it. This also has tiny cut outs along the tops of the cups and band that look like white lace on the site model, but are just… cut outs. The pink ribbons on the straps and gore and EXTREMELY PINK, btw. This is like Willy Wonka Nerds candy pink.

Perhaps I’m nitpicky, but I really didn’t like how the bows looked on the Coco. Compared to the Basic, Coco’s bows look a little lazy. Aside from that, all of Coco’s materials are extremely soft and feel very pleasant. Let’s look at her.

From the front, you can't really see the fit issues (I think). You can see the cut outs on the top, which I like, but you can also see the bows, which I don't like as much.

I had a feeling, looking at Coco, that she would be too small. And I was right, which was very disheartening. I was very excited to try an unlined Comexim, as I don’t see many reviews on them. The plunges are where the bra-internet-world is at, it seems, but I just don’t really like padded bras very much. I do like the Basic, of course, but I love a solid unlined bra. I feel like it has more of the capacity to conform to my shape.

Detail shot. What is the lace pattern supposed to be? Don't know, but I like it. Take note of the vertical seams, also. :)

But let’s see the real problem: this is DEFINITELY too small. Both boobs are bulging out. My smaller side AND my larger side have conspired to overthrow their new Polish governess, and by god, they’ve succeeded! They are out! Yet I can also get an idea of the shape this bra would give me – it seems slightly minimizing, yet rounded. I do believe this may end up comparable to Marcie in the right size.

Young ladies, you are not being kind to our foreign guest. Please get back in there.

At last, we shall rate Coco Montrese. Sorry that was a fierce queen from season 5 of Rupaul. I do think this bra and Coco Montrese have some things in common: I don’t know quite what they’re going for, but I am fond of them.

Appearance of bra itself (8/10)—2 points off for the bows, which I think look sort of out of place on this bra. The rest is very nice.

Appearance of bra on my body (6/10)— As this is definitely too small, I can’t truly give Coco a high rating. I have some ideas of how she’d look in the proper cup size, but it’s all a guess. As of now, she’s not a good fit.

Comfort of…

Straps (9/10)—A point off for the bows. The straps have an interesting texture and seem to be thick, like the Basic.

Band (6/10)—The band hurt on this one. I suspect it’s because the cup is too small, so my body isn’t getting the right amount of room.

Gore (10/10)—Love love love these low gores. My sternum is grateful.

Underwire (9/10)—Thin and flexible wires that I’d love if they were just a touch shorter near the underarm.

Cups (8/10)—The actual material of the cups is quite comfortable. The quad doesn’t feel bad, naturally, but I imagine my tatas would be sore if I wore this bra for an entire day – they would be forced closer to my body and essentially chopped off where I have the most tissue. Still, the material of the cups feels very soft and nice, though what on earth the lace pattern is remains a mystery (I like a little mystery, of course).

Overall rating, then? Comexim Coco gets…

80% – Stay tuned to discover what a 60HH would get…
