About me: FOB, pendulous, short roots, narrow shoulders, narrow to average width roots, centre full and close set.
This was partially an experiment, (excuse to get another Comexim LOL) I ordered this from Breakout Bras since I knew I could return it if it didn’t work out. I wanted to compare an unaltered 3HC with my 3HCs that have straps moved in 1cm. While I prefer the straps moved in, this actually still works for me.
This bra has similar material to the basic plunge with an added strip of gold satin at the edge of the cups. The edge of the cups do show through a thin or ...tight shirt. I’ll be honest, I’m not crazy about the colour, but it’s the closest to a “nude” and I wanted a basic 3HC. I’m hoping someday Comexim will have some other nudes, but the excellent comfort and fit make up for it!
The fit is spot on for me, even the band is TTS and stretched to 34”. 3x3 hooks in the back. The cups are slightly shorter than my Beauty, but it still works for me. This bra feels light and comfortable, as per usual for Comexims. Definitely a keeper.
If you’re new to Comexim sizing, here’s some interesting info (or boring info) I literally spent hours trying to figure out sizing from Comexim to Breakout bras lol. So, I’m usually a 34F UK, and found that in the 3HC 75HH Comexim size fits me well. Then I had to convert to BOB sizing, which is 34G. I’m so relieved I did the bra math correctly lol Read more 159 more words
My shape: round to teardrop, asymmetrical, even top/bottom fullness, outer full, close set when supported, downward pointing nipples, slightly east/west,
This is the first of four Comexim bras that I've tried that actually comes close to fitting, and that I like enough to keep! I wasn't sure about it at first, but after wearing it for most of the day today, it's surprisingly comfortable, and I like the shape under a t-shirt. It gives me some lift, a round shape, and a bit of cleavage. but it's less in-your-face than an EM CHP. The materials are surprisingly nice for a comparatively lower price. It's just a simple ...nude 3-part halfcup, really, but it has cute bows at the gore and bottom of the straps and shiny edging at the top of the cups that I really like. The cup material feels like spacer foam. The seams on the inside of the cup are fairly pronounced, but I can't feel them when wearing it. The band is solid mesh and pretty stretchy.
I exchanged the 32F - Comexim » Basic Half Cup for this size after finding both the cup and band too small in that one. The fit isn't technically perfect - I get what I'd guess you'd call a "soft tack" with the gore (bottom tacks, top does not), the band could be a smidge tighter, and there's a bit of gaping on my smaller side - but I'm thinking this is the best fit I'm going to get from Comexim, after also trying the 75E - Comexim » Basic Plunge Bra (170) and not really liking it. Despite the minor fit issues, it's cute and comfortable enough that I cut the tags off. Read more 185 more words
I'm soft, low set, narrow rooted. I ordered (and received as far as I can tell) straps moved in 1cm, cups lowered by 1cm, and overlapping gore.
This bra lifts me up and makes it look like I have upper fullness - which I don't. As every other comexim I own, it is comfortable right out of the box, and the quality and aesthetic is beautiful. I get a nice, rounded (but not jetting out) kind of profile.
The bra itself is like a soft satin on the outside - so less chance of clothing sticking and creating weird hang ups. The inside is a ...cotton, so nice and comfy against your skin. The straps adjust fully, the band is sized just under 30", and there are 3 sets of hooks. I love order 65Js in Comexim, because the straps are always wider and there are usually 3 sets of hooks for more support.
The cups are thinly padded - 2 vertical seams to make it a 3HC. There is a thin lining along the cups edge, which works really well for my short roots as it hugs the top of my boobs so I don't have any gaping. Unlike the previous 65HHs I've ordered, this one fits perfectly without bubbling. Not sure why I haven't ordered more 65Js? I think I was worried they would fit my boob but leave a gap along the upper edge. With these alterations it fits perfectly.
Sorry for the crappy pictures - I think it's a mixture of poor lighting and a dirty camera (okay, maybe I also just take bad pictures....) Read more 163 more words
This bra's measurements have been altered
made as 3HC, straps moved in 1cm, cups reduced 1cm
I think I might have placed one of the earliest Black Friday orders, so I seem to be among the first to receive mine on Bratabase (?) I had/have this exact same bra in 60J and 60K. I think the Basic fits smaller/ shallower than other 3HC models, so this bra fits like a UK 28G.
My shape is projected, FOT, narrow and tall roots, super close-set, soft and self-supporting. I bought this bra because it's a wardrobe staple, and I'm having a floating gore and spillage in the 60K (which I'll list soon).
The band is nice and firm with a stretched measurement of 28", making it true to ...size as a 60 band. The cups are narrow, not very projected but not shallow either, but a little bit tall. When I first tried this bra on, I had this weird gore twisting thing that created a small gap on one side, but after tightening the straps and moving the wires in the wire channels a little, it seemed to go away. When I move my arms, there are gaps. But in general I would say it's a great fit and juuuuust small enough. I think it would fit even better when my bust gets fuller during some parts of my cycle.
Overall, the quality is great for the price! Read more 110 more words
My shape is projected, full on top and centre, with tall and narrow roots, soft and self-supporting tissue, and super close-set. My usual UK size is 28FF/G depending on how open on top the bra is.
I have this same bra in 60K which has a floating gore and spillage, so I thought a cup size up would fix it. I'm wrong! This is too big on me. Although I don't have visible gaping at the top, the bra is just hanging on my body and not giving any support. The wires are too wide. Although the depth and height measurements seems right for me, it looks too tall worn.
This bra comes with cookie pockets without cookies, and somehow it feels more sturdy than my 60K (maybe because it's too big?) The straps are more stretchy than the one I have.
I think this must be a pre-2017 version where the cups fit larger than now.
Muuuch better! After squeezing into this bra in a 65J, I exchanged for this 65K and I’m so happy I did! It fits exactly how I need it to fit. I feel uplifted, but not shoved up into my neck like the smaller size. I get a great round shape that I love. The three part cup is well made with very basic, subtle adornment. The straps are very well spaced and the wires nice and narrow. I don’t get any digging in my armpits! That’s a win in my book. Backband is TTS with a 3x4 closure. Fits with the wonderful Comexim comfort right out of the box.
My usual UK size is 28FF or possibly G because I was getting quad boobs in the Marcie in 28FF but not a lot in the Envy. My leaning bust is 35" so I'm not sure if I would fit into a 28G. My shape is projected, full on top and centre, with tall and narrow roots, super close-set and soft tissue.
I had this exact same bra in 60J which was too small/shallow with empty space at the bottom of the cups and dramatic cleavage, so I ordered a 60K instead.
This cups are shallow, I guess that's why I needed a 60K. It fits OK on me, although there is some spillage to the centre so I wish the gore was a bit higher. It is narrow though which is great for my super close set boobs. However, if I put my arms in front (like typing on the keyboard), there is some gapping. The wires are narrow for this size.
The band runs tight, although not by a full band size in my opinion.
BASIC Bra (Size:70HH, Color:beige) *Made in a 3HC cut *Reduced cup height *Straps moved in 2cm*Reduce center gore by 1cm *2cm deeper cups especially at the bottom of the cups, near the wires
My type : 30FF/32F UK, short, FOB, projected especially bottom, narrow to average root ============= My 7th Comexim bra. HApPY!! Finally I find the Comexim size and alternations for my breast. This bra is the dream bra for my shooooooort and FOooooooB breast. Not tall cup, No gap near strap, No empty space top of cup, Enough space bottom of cup!!!!
I recommend, Short breast-> reduce gore, reduce cup height FOB or Bottom projeced -> 3HC, deeper bottom cups Center fullness or big cup+small band -> straps moved in
This bra's measurements have been altered
*Made in a 3HC cut *Reduced cup height *Straps moved in 2cm *2cm deeper cups especially at the bottom of the cups, near the wires *Reduce center gore by 1cm
About me: Measure about 26FF, moderately projected, even-to-FOB with short roots, functionally narrow roots, close set, center full, about 1-2 cup size asymmetry.
This bra fits similarly to my other 55J - Comexim » Pearl Flower Mint Half Cup except with taller cups. Not bad on my smaller side but too small on my bigger side. My boobs refuse to quad or spill out the top and instead push the whole bra, wires and all, on top of my breast tissue, which is quite painful. Interestingly enough, the unstretched cup depth is the same (7.75") but the stretched-over-the-knee depth (which is what really matters in terms ...of fit) of this bra is bigger, so the cups are stretchier. The cups are the perfect height for me at 5.5" - if only they were just a bit deeper!
The band is made of only 1 layer of firm mesh compared to the PFM, which might be why it is a bit stretchier. But it feels just as stable and well constructed as the 2-layer bands, though. The straps are nice and wide. Overall, it's a quality basic bra but unfortunately not a fit. Read more 85 more words
My Black Friday Comexim order arrived! I got tired of using silicone nipple covers under unlined bras when I wear thin white tops so decided to get a lined white bra.
Since my first trial a few years ago, I found that Comexim half-cups fit my top fullness and tall roots much better than plunges, so I asked to make the Basic Bra in a 3HC. It is a 60 band, so it is unreturnable. I'm really disappointed it's too small in the cups. I had lined and unlined 3HC's from Comexim in 60HH, but they got too small because I gained weight and a cup size. So I ...was pretty sure I need a 60J, but it turns out I'm wrong.
The cups feel really shallow as I have a bit of empty space at the bottom and my boobs get pushed UP so dramatically. A cup depth of 8.5" is more like a 60H/HH imo. I wonder if their cups are made smaller now? My soft tissue is also falling out at the centre and a little bit at the armpit area - I could use more coverage there.
The band is a bit tight, but my under bust is 27" so it is not a problem for me. Read more 100 more words
