Comexim Review: Sonia in 65G

Why are you ordering a 65G, you wonder? Well… I’m just plain uncomfortable and I realize I’m more comfortable in 30 bands. And considering the successful fit of the Luna, unaltered, in a 60H, I decided I would go with a sister size up. I am very happy I did! I purchased two new Comexim beauties in mid-October and received them yesterday. Let’s look at these children. We’ll start with Sonia.

To preface: the Sonia is intended as a half-cup. I am predictable and don’t like change, so I requested it in plunge form. That’s the main alteration. I did request 3×3 hooks, but I suspect something was lost in translation. Even so, I was amazed by how beauteous this thing is. It’s very warm and peachy with silver lace, and then the straps? AaaaAaAAAAaahhh now if only I could have a plain old grey bra.

Please, please, please, give me a grey bra, bra gods.

Please, please, please, give me a grey bra, bra gods.

ANYWAY, SORRY. Let’s look at Sonia.

Comexim: Luna (60H)

Today, dear brog friends, we will be viewing my very favorite bra of the moment: the Comexim Luna. This was a difficult bra to find. Honestly, it’s nowhere to be found. You look on Comexim’s site and it ain’t there. Wellfitting? Ain’t there, either. I did some internet sleuthing because I wanted a bra with the MOON on it (!!!) and did discover a US retailer that had it: Posh Lingerie—here is the general link and here is the specific link for the Luna (do note that most sizes are gone by now, but you might be able to alter a band to fit…of course, YMMV). If you order from this site, they’re a little wonky and you have to order by phone. I hate ordering over the phone, but I did it. Plus, they put a cute little “thank you” card in my package. If they fix up their site and organize it better, it’ll be perfect!

Now, let’s get some things on the table: this has NO alterations. That’s right, folks: nada. 2 hook back. Cups at standard size. Straps in standard placement. Gore at standard height. This is the way the bra is intended to be made, and I got it in a 60H because it was the closest option. So, let’s summarize: I got a 60H Luna, and it’s actually…

Well, it’s pretty good, and I was super pleased.

Comexim Review: Coco, 60HH

As prefaced in our last entry, I asked Comexim to shorten the cups and move the straps in, both by 4 cm. As I prefaced before, this led to one bra fitting hella weird. That is the bra we’re gonna talk about. The Coco. What made it weird? Well, I essentially ended up with a plunge instead of a half cup. The cup got longer/taller. I guess this goes to show that the alterations you request can make the bra you order…not the bra you ordered. Needless to say, I was very confused by this Coco, but I’m the only one to blame.

This isn’t to say I don’t like the Coco, though. It’s a weird bra that doesn’t look like a lot of bras. The lace is funny. It’s quirky. I still don’t really care for the bows, but I am, again, very picky. I am fascinated with the fit of the Coco more than anything, though.
