Back to my beloved Comexim today. The Irish Coffee plunge is a beautiful rich brown base overlayed by a soft ivory lace that feels more like crochet than lace. The peach bows are the perfect accent to set everything off. Let’s take a look at her, shall we?
Once again, Comexim wins my heart with their narrow wires and projected cups:
Irish Coffee is a slightly different shape than most Comexim plunges. The tops of her cups are trimmed with a ribbon, and that causes the cups to be more closed off. I’ve also heard Irish Coffee runs a bit small. This bra is a 60K with reduced cups, a lowered gore, and the straps moved in 2cm. It was a secondhand buy, and considering it’s the equivalent to a 28H, I’m a little surprised it fits as well as it does. I would tend to agree that it runs small, as it is 2 full cup sizes larger than my Poison Ivy.
At any rate, Irish Coffee gives amazing lift and a lovely, round shape:
However, the cups do close in quickly, and if we look at another angle, you can see where I’m threatening to quad out of it a bit:
But at the same time, there is empty cup space at the top of the cups where they meet the straps:
I think this is the best fit I’ll find in Irish Coffee. Due to my almost-quad and the shape of the cups, I really don’t think I could go down a size. Some day I would love a Comexim Brigitte, which has a similar ribbon trim edge to the cups, and I’ll likely be emailing Anna and asking her opinion about sizing and how the patterns compare, and using these images as examples.
What do you think of Irish Coffee? Isn’t she classy?
