I got this bra as part of a three bra package from another Bratabase user, along with the 80E - Comexim » Geisha (202) and 80E - Comexim » Magic Blue (229) , and initially did not intend on buying it. I'm glad I did, because it actually ended up being my favorite out of the purchase despite the other two being on my bra wishlist for the last few years. This bra is *so* comfortable, I don't want to take it off and have almost forgotten to do so before bedtime on two separate occasions!
Comexim has the narrowest wires of any company ...I've tried, with the wires on the Audrey being less than 1cm from my root at the top outer edge of the cup and in my IMF almost the rest of the way. Unfortunately, the gore is slightly too wide at the very top and sits on a bit of breast tissue, just like... well, almost every bra I've ever tried that tacks at the gore, with the exception of maybe one (the Ewa Michalak Pl Violet (165) in 70H with an extender, back when I wore a 32HH. My research tells me the gore would have been between 2-3" and about 0.6" wide).
The straps are plain black with what I've come to think of as 'resistance stitching', and are the right cross between stretchy enough to give a little and sturdy enough to support the level of projection the cup provides. They are 0.75" wide in an 80E. Adjusting them takes some work, and once they are adjusted they do *not* move. The cups are slightly taller than both plunges in the same size, as I expected (6" for Audrey, 5.75" for MB/Geisha), as well as narrower than the Geisha (but surprisingly, or perhaps not, the same width as the Magic Blue) and deeper.
The band itself is a fine black mesh printed with white polka-dots, over a stretchy plain black base like that used in the Magic Blue, and stretches to approximately 33", a nice medium between the 31.5" an 80 band would ideally stretch to and the 34+ that my prior '80' bands from other companies have stretched to. The decoration on the gore is a double ribbon bow, with the inner being a black ribbon with silver stitched edging and the outer being thinner and hot pink.
All in all, I'm super pleased with the Audrey-- enough that for my first direct order from Comexim, I'll most likely be asking for bras that fit like this one does, rather than the plunge cut that I expected to love. Read more 333 more words
his is a very pretty bra that seems like it would be comfortable. I ended up with the wrong size due to a miscommunication with Anna at Comexim, so it is a bit too large in the cup for me. It gives a nice, round, uplifted shape. My breasts are close-set with a narrow root and a lot of immediate and center projection, but leaning towards FoT and full in the center. I feel like this bra would have fit well if the cups weren't too big. The straps are fully adjustable, and are just barely too wide for my narrow shoulders. But they are narrower-set than my ...Ewa bras and much narrower than Cleo!
It is brand new, never worn (just tried on for a few minutes), but it didn't come with any tags. The band seems quite snug for a 75, as I prefer 70 bands in most of the bras I have from Ewa Michalak, so this would be similar to some of her newer models that run tight, like the S Grace. It fits like a UK 32JJ or a very snug 34J.
Update: I have gained weight so that I am more of a 32JJ and have been wearing this bra more. The cup shape doesn't quite suit me as it seems to want my breasts to be fullest towards the outside rather than towards the center, and the gore is maybe 1/2" or so too low, as I fall out of this bra after a while, and not out of my Ewa PL, which has a very slightly higher gore. The band has also stretched out some after a few wears, so it is a little too loose on the tightest hook, but this is true of most of my (more worn) 32/70 band bras as well, so I think it is probably still pretty tight for a 75 band.

This is one of the more cute bras I own, and I love the attention to detail that was put into it to make it more unique as a black bra. The polka dot print is inked/painted on, so washing it with dark colors won't affect the bright white, which is an issue I have had with other bras when there is white print interspersed with dark fabric. Additionally, the purple/pink bow in the middle is just the right touch of feminine without making it overly so.
Fit-wise, the bra is the amazing perfectly perky and rounded plunge Comexim shape. While I am currently wearing this with an ...extender (on the second row of hooks on the bra and hooked on the second row of hooks on the extender), the band is one of the more stretchier ones from Comexim, so I likely will be able to wear it without an extender soon enough. There are 4 rows of hooks on all of my newer Comexims, so I know the band will remain firm on my 32/34 underbust for quite a while.
The gore tacks on me well -- not Ewa Michalak well, but there is tacking without wire pain at all. The straps are full adjustable, and a comfortable width apart. Another quality I love about Comexim bras that I don't believe I've mentioned before is that their bands sit really low on me, which I love and find extremely comfortable. My waist curves in quite a bit, so having the band sit perfectly on the smallest part of my torso is great.
In short, love the bra and LOVE the brand. Read more 165 more words
I have this bra with the reduced cups, straps moved in, and narrowed gore alterations. It fits great! My boobs are full on bottom and short rooted, and this model with the alterations works like a charm for me. The band is sooooo comfortable (though a smidge big for me, but I'm more of a technical 24 anyway) and the fabric is soft and high quality. I recommend this bra without reservations.
I bought this from another user . The cups are reduced. I normally need 11 inches or so of depth in UK sizes . This bra is 10.5 deep and it may be a little big. I'm still trying to figure out sizing in these Polish bras. I'm just not sure if a K would fit better or if this is just a shape mis-match for me. I'm beginning to realize that I probably have short roots and even a reduced cup in a plunge is still too tall for me. I would really need to used cookies to fill the top. I have a lot of center fullness and so I think a plunge is just not for me.
This bra is really cute! It's super soft with a simple and fun design. There is a double bow at the gore: a black one with white polka dots, like the bra, and a pretty fuschia pink one on top to give it some color. This bra has reduced cups and cookie pockets for the correction of asymmetry or for some extra oomph. (cookies not included). Unfortunately, this one didn't fit me, but I have re-ordered it because I love it. This bra is brand new, never been worn, only tried on a couple times.
Consistent in size with others - fits like a 30-32GG/H. Very cute & comfy. One problem with this bra that I have never had is that the dotted overlay fabric is weak at the seams and the elastic quickly began to pop out along the mid-cup seam near the straps (where my arms brush during movement), and in a few other seam junctures. It's perfectly functional until the fraying turns so lumpy that is shows under clothing, but it's not pretty and the value is diminished compared to the many other styles with sturdier materials.
Great padded plunge bra - but too small in the cups for me. Band 75(34) fits perfectly 72cm ribcage (Comexim makes bras with tight bands and don't follow +inches method). The underwires are quite narrow so I wouldn't recommend it to a person who prefers wider wires.
Comexim bras are nicely designed and much better quality then Ewa Michalak.
