Well that's it, the quest is over. I found The One.
My breasts are lifted, supported, nicely shaped. The wires aren't digging in painfully anywhere. The seams in the cups are low profile, making the bra nearly invisible under clothing. The cup padding is thick enough to hide nipples, but doesn't feel too heavy. The cups are rather closed, but they work for my centre-full, full-on-bottom breasts. I'm not scared to bend over and fall out. The workmanship looks good, and it doesn't look like an old lady bra. The bow details and lace trim make the bra pretty, in a discreet sort of way.
Comexim Basic Bra, I wish I'd found you years ago!
After my mom tried a 80F - Comexim » Basic Plunge Bra (170) , she wanted a looser band with the same cup depth and needed a lowered cup and gore, so I ordered this bra with 2 cms taken from the cup height and gore height (requests made in English with translations to Polish as provided by r/abrathatfits). From ordering time to delivery was a little under a month. The alterations were done (~1.5 cm were taken off, which might be the max they can do for a bra this size). This bra's cup height is 15.8 cms tall (vs. 17.3 cms for the 80F). The gore height is 5.7 cms (7.3 cms for the 80F).
The band is firm, but I know from experience it will loosen up after my mom wears it for a day (might include an extender for her first wearing). It's a beautiful bra and I will send it to her shortly. I hope it fits her!
I recently bought this bra from the lovely yogurt, and I've worn it a few times so far, so here are my first impressions, and how it compares to my 55J Geisha. First of all, AFAIK, there aren't any alterations on this bra, compared to my Geisha, which has lowered cups and gore. In comparison, this Basic does fit much more full-coverage. The gore doesn't bother me at all, but the cups are just a little too tall for what I prefer, and the apex is a bit higher than where my natural bust apex sits, so I find that there's a little bit of empty ...space just at the intersection of the seams. However, there isn't any visible gaping. The bottom of the cups are also a bit shallow, so I do feel like the lower half of my breast tissue is a little squished, but overall it doesn't affect the fit throughout the day. I find that every other aspect of this bra is wonderful! The materials are all so soft and comfortable, the wires are a perfect width, and the band fits comfortably snug on the loosest hook. The band has some nice give to it, so it doesn't dig in uncomfortably, whereas my Geisha is quite old at this point (considering I'm the second owner and I've had it for probably two years now) and the band elastic is kind of shot, so it really doesn't have any stretch left at this point, and it can start to dig in a little by the end of the day.
Overall I'm very happy with this purchase, and I'm sure I'll be wearing it for quite a while because of Comexim's unmatched comfort! Read more 178 more words
So unlike the other bra I got in 55J (with reduced cups, lowered gore, and straps moved in), this one does fit. In fact, on my larger side it verges on being too small. The Basic is definitely more shallow than Geisha or Vivien and I would say that it does run a bit smaller in the cup. The band on the 55 is true to size, it stretches to exactly 28 inches. It's one of those small but very stretchy ones. The material on the basic I received is very wrinkly and I don't really care for that. It's not the band being too tight, it's just ...a fairly wrinkly satin. The lace at the tops of the cups and the pearl on the gore in the middle is a nice touch.
I tried the basic before in 60HH with no alterations and found it much too tall and large. The alterations really do make all the difference here as this bra is much more suited to me. The cups are fairly shallow at the bottom and have a tendency to move downward. Oddly, the silhouette is fairly minimized but rounded. The wires are nice and narrow on this. Again, as a note, cup width decreases between the 60 band and the 55 band in the same cup volume. Be aware of this if you're sister sizing.
Overall, Basic is a great basic bra (who woulda thought) but I'm not dying over it. Vivien and Mystic Plunge definitely are still my winners! Read more 145 more words
Get alterations if you're short and have a narrow frame - seriously. I'm a big fan of this bra, though I do feel that the band is riding up. Maybe this has a stretchy band? I might have to invest in a 55 band or something for the Basic model, oddly enough. I guess a 55J is where I need to go for this, which sounds crazy to me but I guess isn't that crazy. The cups have been lowered, as has the gore, and the straps have been moved inward. I am positive this would be too tall and would hurt my armpits, otherwise. My bigger breast is coming out near the gore whilst my smaller one is sitting pretty. Not sure what to do about that. Would one cup size up end up being too much? It's not uncomfortable, but the seams show through clothes on my larger side (left boob) and don't on my smaller side.
My UK size is 32JJ / K. This 75M does fit me surprisingly well. The band does fit just right. If I wear the bra more than 2 days in a row (I know, I shouldn't!) I have to wear it on the second hook as the band stretches out a bit with wear. The wires are quite narrow (compared to other bras in that size range) and are just perfect for me. The cups are very tall which is perfect for my tall / full – on – top boobs. The bra is very comfortable and supportive. My main issue is that the gore is too low and ...floating. The cups are slightly small, I get some overspill towards the centre because my boobs are very centre heavy. I don't get some severe quadboob though. Or let's say it's not visible under a t-shirt, so if it's not visible I don't call it an issue. Still I think, I'd need another cup size up + a taller gore to get a proper fit in this bra. I like the colour, it's a nice “beige” that goes quite well with my rather pale skin. Most so called “nude” colours end up being too yellowish on my skin but this one is just perfect. I absolutely love the shape I get in this bra! It's a perfect round shape from the side <3 Read more 123 more words
This bra is well constructed and fits the bill for a basic bra. The color is a bit light on my fair-golden skin tone, but nothing too obvious under regular shirts. I would not consider this a nude bra for under white garments. The fabric is soft and the cup a bit stiff compared to my other bras of the brand. This bra has three rows of hooks by four columns. Quite odd to me considering the others I own are all 3x3. The straps are fully adjustable and provide a good stiff elastic stretch. The cups and underwires encase my breast well.
I HAVE FOUND MY HOLY GRAIL OF BRAS. I ripped this out of the package and immediately tried it on when I got home. At first I thought it would be wayyy too small/shallow, but I must be used to the depths on bras with much wider cups. This bra fits perfectly and is super comfortable! I haven't taken it off yet! All the general boxes are ticked: gore tacks (without stabbing), band is tight but not suffocating (and is comfy right now on the loosest set), straps are close enough together that they don't jump off my shoulders all the time, the cups ...are NARROW (honestly the narrowest I've experienced in this size range) and don't rub on my armpits. Besides all that, it ticks off all the secondary sort of things that I like in a bra. The material is soft, non-irritating, and light, and I get really awesome uplift without the bra cutting in or having any extra space.
I can't believe I got this lucky https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_surprised.gif" alt=":O" /> I think I have my Comexim size pinned down, even without any alterations! I will probably go and order this same bra in black and some others now that I have my size!!! So incredibly happy with this bra https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
EDIT: In my excitement I didn't realise that there actually ARE 3 hooks, not two :X Read more 137 more words
This is my first Comexim bra and I love it! The quality seems really good, the shape works really well for me AND the gore is narrow enough to fit nicely between the ladies! It's the first bra that I don't think I will get red marks because the gore is too wide! All of that is awesome AND it's a nude bra! I've been needing a nude bra! (Now spring can hurry up and get here because I'm ready to wear my more sheer tops)
The database says that this bra doesn't fit me but I kinda object. Yes, the band is a little too tight for comfort WITHOUT an extender, and that might ease off within the first few wears and washes... And sure enough, the gore doesn't tack 100% but it's just off by like 5 millimetres. I feel supported in this and the straps aren't terribly wide-set, which is really saying something since I have ridiculously narrow shoulders and every bra so far has tried to saw my arms off. I could do with the straps being placed like 2 cm closer to the neck but that's just a minor ...thing because I really can't say I'm bothered by it.
I asked Comexim to custom-make this for me so the band would have 3 hooks instead of 2. I'm quite pleased with it.
Update 18 april 2014: I have concluded that the cups are about one cup size too small for me, but it's not the worst kind of "too small cups". I don't have double boob and it's not like I can't fit all of my tissue inside the cups, it's just that the nature of this bra allows my breast tissue to escape down the middle and stack "on top". This means that I am not getting the most supportive fit out of this (very supportive still!) and I also get a lot more cleavage than I would in a bigger cup size. I will be keeping this bra because I can deal and it's not the end of the world. Read more 151 more words
