Comexim Geisha Review: With Great Boobies Comes Great Responsibility



If the prospect of living in a world where trying to respect the basic rights of those around you—and valuing each other simply because we exist—are such daunting, impossible tasks that only a super-hero born of royalty can address them… then what sort of world are we left with? And what sort of world do you want to live in?

Good morrow Gentle Readers!  If you have been paying attention, and I am sure you have, then you will have seen my review last week of Comexim’s Ingrid bra and knickers.  If not, go read that one now, as you’ll want some of the general info contained therein before reading this one (unless you are already pretty familiar with Comexim and  Because that review only JUST went up so recently, I will refrain from including all the same information and just get to the good stuff.  Man, who knew I could write put up three entries in two weeks?  Someone must have ripped the “Q” section out of my dictionary, ’cause I don’t know the meaning of the word “quit.” (That’s from Mystery Men’s Mr. Furious, who incidentally is basically me in superhero form.)


It’s not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.

Now, at this point, you may be thinking, “Now, Miss Shapen, how did you end up choosing a superhero theme for the review of this bra?”  Well, Gentle Readers… that’s a good question.  I really don’t know, to be honest.  I picked the Geisha more or less at random to be the bra that Brack Bridow wore in my Bravengers post, and then… Well, then I thought it was awesome.  Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that when I bought this catsuit, I said to my mom with complete confidence, “I’m TOTALLY going to need this someday!  How could I NOT need a black vinyl catsuit?!”  So there you go.  I am officially the hero of my own story.


Whatever comes our way, whatever battle we have raging inside us, we always have a choice. My friend Harry taught me that. He chose to be the best of himself. It’s the choices that make us who we are, and we can always choose to do what’s right.

The Geisha bra is cut in Comexim’s standard plunge style, but it really packs a good one-two of style.  *OOF* Anna of Comexim describes it as beige foam (to me the foam seems like more of a cream color) *WHAM!* covered by Italian lace *POW!*.  The lace is black with pink flowers – maybe an undertone of copper on them? – and whitish foliage *ZOK!*, and the cups are topped with thin black lace trim *KHAZAM!*.  The straps are black with a bit of a decorative touch and fully adjustable*KIYAI!*.  It’s really quite lovely, and is sweet without being overly frilly.  I enjoyed pairing it with any black lacy knickers I had available, as it went quite well with any of them (super handy!) *WHABAM!*


Sometimes the truth isn’t good enough, sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded.

Like other Comexim bras, the Geisha can be ordered with lowered cups, which Anna says will bring them down about 1-1.5 cm, “which makes your bust more prominent.”  I have yet to try this, so I can’t attest to the effects, but I am looking forward to trying the lower cup option in general.  I do have one customization on this bra, which is a raised gore.  I find that with really deep plunges, sometimes my boobs rebel and attempt to begin their Awesome Boobs World Takeover Plot by escaping the cups of their captivity, striking forth on a center-leaning path and ending up (having always failed at complete escape, due to still being attached to me) smushed together in a sad and dejected display of spillage.  Oh, to have super firm, self-supporting boobs!  A girl can dream.  Anyway, the raised gore on this eliminates that problem without bringing the center up high enough to show under most tops.  I approve.  Your mileage may vary, of course, and I generally advise ordering a bra without any customizations if it’s your first go, and then you can establish a base fit and size and go from there.


There’s an ancient wisdom I should have heeded long ago, if only I had recognized its truth applies as much to me as to all men. True happiness is found along a middle road. There lies the balance and the harmony — with reason and emotion not at war, but hand in hand.

As you can see in the above photo, I am thisclose to quadboobing here.  Sadly, I was growing out of this bra when I took these photos, and have since outgrown it completely.  It is a sad world in which I live.  Still, I think you can see what a nice rounded shape it gives:


Hold your ground, hold your ground! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you- stand, Men of the West!

And look!  With the raised gore, it even helps me stay put during badass supervillain-fighting action.  (I am kicking a ghost here, in case that isn’t obvious.)


Do you know what is the greatest gift anyone can receive in his lifetime? The greatest gift we can receive is to have the chance, just once in our lives, to make a difference. Do you understand how many times you made a difference? Enough for a hundred lifetimes.
– Doctor Strange speaking to Peter Parker.

The band on the Geisha is very firm, and as I got this one in a 55O instead of my (then) customary 60N, it’s actually a bit too snug!  I have heard from several other people that they found the Geisha’s band to run on the tight side, so that is something to bear in mind, but either way I think I’ll be sticking with 60 bands in the future in Comexim.  I find that most 60/28 bands in other brands are on the loose side for me, but Comexim is making their bands pretty tight these days (in my experience), which is awesome.  For reference, my “break-the-tape” underbust measurement is 27″ at the moment.

But enough with the crazy poses, as fun as they are.  Those are the pictures you deserve, but not the ones you need right now (I hope at least some of you get that reference, backwards as it is).   Let’s get some close-ups of the bra so you really know what you’re getting into if you go for one:


Life isn’t a doughnut, Peter. It is the inevitability of hard times, which we survive only because of the moments of joy in between. You are that joy. The moments we had with the Avengers were that joy. Now comes the inevitable. And we will deal with it, and get to the other side, where more moments of joy are waiting for us.

Read the whole exchange here; it’s great.

Note, as always with Comexim, the magically narrow U-shaped wires that encase all of my breast tissue but don’t go any further out, nor do they stab me in the ribs!  I think these wires are the real heroes here, Gentle Readers.  Also worth noting – if I do a bunch of jumping around crazily and do not scoop and swoop… bulgy.  *grumbles*  But I suppose it’s a good reminder that scooping and swooping often needs to be redone here and there throughout the day, especially if you are new to it and have a lot of tissue migration or have been super active doing stuff like saving the world or what have you.  So yes, Gentle Readers.  I think it’s time to wrap up another post.  It’s so nice to be back.  I can’t promise to keep this momentum up, but I’ve got enough in the works to say that you’ll be hearing from me a lot more often, at least for the next while.  It’s a good feeling.


Until the world ends, we will act like it spins on.

Comfort: 8/10 Also like the Ingrid, the armpits are a teeeeny bit rubby, and I would love a wider band with more hooks in back.  On all bras, really.  Wider bands, please!  LONGLINES IN MY SIZE PLEASE!!!!

Till next we meet, Gentle Readers, keep fighting the good fight and remember, as Timothy Dalton (who played James Bond in The Living Daylights and License to Kill) said:

“You can’t relate to a superhero, to a superman, but you can identify with a real man who in times of crisis draws forth some extraordinary quality from within himself and triumphs but only after a struggle.”

Go forth, but

Do not go gentle into that good night,

Old age should burn and rave at close of day;

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
