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 currently own this bra in a 65J and a 70J. What I needed was the band of the 65J and the cup of the 70J, and here it is! This is exactly what I wanted. I feel contained and comfortable. I’d been favoring the 70J due to the cup, but if worn all day the backband just didn’t feel secure, despite fitting on the tightest hooks. With this 65K the backband is TTS with a 3x4 closure. The straps are well spaced and I don’t feel any armpit digging in. The wires are a smidge too wide, but not enough to declare it a fit issue. I love the fit and will be purchasing in black as soon as possible. Definitely a staple in my bra wardrobe.

This bra is probably one of my favorites I've ever owned. Wearing it brings me so much joy, but I know I have to hold back so I don't stretch it out too soon (though I'll certainly be buying another once that happens). As mentioned, there's the whole wire width thing. I measured the wires on this bra to be just a smidge under 6 inches wide, which is still just a teeny bit too wide for me, but it is ...the narrowest bra in this size I've ever owned.
If you look to your left, however, passengers, you'll see a huge gap between the bottom of my boob and the wire.
This isn't a problem per say, and I have this problem with all of my bras, but I think it's so pronounced on this bra because /everything/ is so narrow on this bra. I've inserted a picture showing how narrow the bottom of the wire is as well. My essentially flat-bottomed boobs won't fit into that. The gore is also really narrow on this bra (the wires overlap at the gore), which would be great for someone with close set boobs, but mine aren't. You can see in one of the pictures that gore kind of dips off to the side when I raise my arms--that's how much space there is.
The back band is an absolute dream though. When I was first putting this bra on I remember fastening the hooks and thinking, "This is really firm!" I've never had a bra that's band has fit me as well as this bra's does. It's essentially perfect on me. I stretched this bra's band to 29 inches and as of my last measurements had a 28.75 inch underbust.
Little nitpicks I would make to this bra would be raising and widening the gore and removing the little lacy bit under the band (these always roll up under my band and hurt!). Read more 239 more words
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 179 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
