Comexim Review: Jacqueline (65H)

Good afternoon, dear friends. Today I am ill. Despite that illness, I have decided to finally getting around in reviewing a bra I received a while ago – the Comexim Jacqueline. I received this bra via bratabase and I do love the look of it. It’s sort of goofy. It reminds me of shopping in Hot Topic and thinking black nails were a true symbol of rebellion (oops, they really aren’t). Even so, I like the look of this one. Houndstooth and bright red lace make for a strange yet endearing combination. I recall there being customizations with this one, and I know it has a three hook back. It might have reduced cups, but I’m not sure. It definitely doesn’t have the straps moved in because my armpits do NOT like when I try to wear this. For that reason, I have only worn the Jacqueline for about 3 hours. That was one time. I never put it on again, sensing it might hurt me.

ANYWAY!

Let’s look at this baby.

This bra sort of reminds me of the fan fiction "My Immortal", which you should look at even if you know nothing about Harry Potter (because evidently, the author also did not know anything about Harry Potter).

From the front, everything looks really good. The girls are separated. The red is vibrant. I also love the tiny red stitching along the bottom of the band – it’s very cute and makes this bra feel a little less random.

But unfortunately, there are major fit issues for me.

Both too big and too small. Notice where the cup goes to my armpit. How DARE you, Jackie!!?

Here you can see gapping at the top. The cups are too tall. I don’t have any booby there. At the same time, the center is a little too small on my bigger boob. Overall, the makes the cups feel slouchy somehow and if I tighten the straps more, I get a big ole quad. This is actually kind of similar to how the Poison Ivy in a 60HH felt. The cups wanted to gap but at the same time wanted to cut into my boobs. Make up your damn minds, bras.

This is me with good posture. I have bad posture, though, so inevitably my armpits will go right into the sides of the cup and get bitten.

The profile is very nice, but I expect that with Comexim. The way it’s constructed can hide fit problems. You can’t tell from this image that there is a slight space at the bottom of the cups where my boobs push the cup down because they want room. For being apparently 30E’s, these fuckers cause a lot of trouble.

SIGH… let’s rate her.

Appearance of bra itself (9/10)—This is a kinda weird bra with a younger aesthetic than I typically see from Comexim. This isn’t bad, it’s just not my usual taste.

Appearance of bra on my body (8/10)—Underneath clothes, there is no obvious fit problem. Without clothes, however, you can see issues with gapping/quadding as well as the closeness to my poor armpits.

Comfort of…

Straps (7/10)—These are a little too far apart, and I find I can’t tighten them to a good length in order to make the bra not quad or gap. They dig in a little.

Band (9/10)—VERY comfortable band. The previous owner sanded down the end of the band because it dug into her skin. I think this probably helped. But the band is really nice and stretches to just a touch under 30″. The band is my very favorite part, actually.

Gore (10/10)—Comfortable and great. I have no complaints with this gore at all.

Underwire (7/10)—The underwire is just a little too tall on the sides, but the narrowness is excellent.

Cups (7/10)—The Armpit Wars: The Cups Strike Back (2015) will be coming to a theater near you.

Overall rating, then? The Comexim Jacqueline (65H) gets…

81% – A low B, which I think is pretty much exactly what it should get.

  1. I have the same problems with my Comexim bra! The cups are too tall in some places, but at the same time they’re too low in other. I was thinking of trying an altered/reduced cup, but I’m assuming they would reduce it along the entire upper part, and that wouldn’t be right either. I also tried downsizing, which didn’t work as it was then obviously too small. They should have an inbetween size or something … It’s so frustrating because I adore their designs, and how they look from the front.

    • I know exactly what you mean!! They shorten the cups about a half inch when you request it, but this can be really annoying because it can shorten it right in the middle, so my girls just spill on out. There should really be inbetween sizes. I agree 😥
