    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!

    Hasn't set fit

    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!

      Great that Comexim did the requested alterations. Hope your mom will be happy with the bra!

      I think it's easier to get alterations only a few at a time, or for smaller orders, or at a less busy time.

    • 1

      cupandahalf I agree. A short list of alterations is easier to manage. Phew.

      So hope this one fits her well!

    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.

  4. I like this bra, and I bought two more of the same colour/same size! I guess I am a boring person like that (looks at Sonya's colourful bra collection...), but I got to have something to keep the girls covered! I thought about ordering the Megan Plunge, https://www.bratabase.com/browse/comexim/megan-plunge-653/, just to have this same style in a different colour, but then I also read that their black bras can run tight?? and I didn't want to risk it not fitting, when I really need a few good-fitting bras a.t.m.

    My shape: FOB, projected, both narrow roots with average root height, centre-full.

    Some thoughts on ... this bra: since I live in Canada, I'm thinking this bra will do well as a 3-season bra - fall, winter, spring. Since it is a padded bra, I'm thinking I might want something lighter for the summertime, but if I lived in a hot climate, this might only work as a winter bra...not sure. I did live in California for nine years (the central valley) and I probably wouldn't wear this type of bra in the 100F+ summer weather, I just would sweat too much.

    As soon as I tried on this bra, I was like, "I will take two," it fits that well, lol. Of course, I'm comparing to the poorly fitting 32DD/34DD bras from V.S. that I was stuffing myself into before I discovered by ABTF size, sooo...this is obviously much better.

    There is a handy dandy app now, created by Reddit users u/mathandplants, u/EuphoricToe1, and u/winsbe01, that helps one convert her UK size ---->Comexim size, or her UK size ------> Comexim bra size when ordering from Breakout Bras (if that makes sense...if any ? ask below) Here is a link to that app http://comeximcalc.herokuapp.com/

    Of note: on the Breakout Bras website, they recommend "sizing up" 1 or 2 cup sizes. According to ABTF mods, this is a bit simplified; depending on what one's cup size is, she should size up 1,2,3, or even 4 cups sizes. Honestly, now that the app has been invented-- as long as one has determined her accurate UK bra size--I think it's better to use the app as a starting point, and she shouldn't be that far off for Comexim sizing. Those are my thoughts on sizing!!

    It can be confusing when ordering Comexim bras from Breakout Bras since they use different labels.

    I find this bra to be very comfortable and supportive, I like what it does to my posture. Furthermore, the colour works well as nude, and it doesn't show through any of my clothing, even a very thin shirt. At first I thought it was a little itchy, but it doesn't really bother me anymore. At this price point, I have very few complaints about this bra; I recommend it for people who are a similar shape/size as me.

    disclaimer: from my opening paragraph, I'm not saying this bra is boring in any way. It has a simple aesthetic that I enjoy. It's understated. Plus, it works for me b/c I wear a lot of thin shirts (in Canada, yes...the heat is always pumping), and this bra doesn't show through colour or texture: in my opinion, it's a good workhorse bra. I think this also doubles a T-shirt bra for me.

      Your jokes crack me up “I guess I’m a boring person” lol. Not boring, we all have our preferences and what works for us! Glad this worked out for you. I think you’re assessment is accurate that you’re likely not as FOB/short rooted as you thought if this works for you. Yay comexim win!

    • 2

      margesimpson , ha ha, idk (re: short roots vs. average roots). Maybe I should post it as a fit question...I feel like I have a bit of chest b4 my breasts start, but I wonder this plunge style just lifts my boobs up so much that it kind of fills out the top part.

      Even just a few years ago, I think I was more FOT, but then I kinda lost some weight, so I'm definitely more FOB, not that you asked (I feel like I have to add that disclaimer every time ; )

      BraOdyssey I should use that disclaimer too cause you didn’t ask my opinion but I gave it anyway lol

    Didn't fit

    Updated
    My first polish bra and sadly didn’t work out. 75H - Comexim » Basic Plunge Bra (170)
    I usually wear 34F

    Firstly thanks to everyone who provided feedback, it was immensely helpful!

    After wearing a few times and washing, it really did soften up. It is now less pointy and gappy (see updated photos).

    There is still some gapping at the top of the right cup which is my smaller boob. Gore doesn’t tack at the top but it doesn’t seem to be an issue. The band fits snug but it’s not uncomfortable.

    I’m FOB center full and I think I have narrow short roots. I like the narrow gore (it came overlapped without requesting which works for me) and how light the bra’s materials are.

    However, after wearing this a few times I realized that is cutting into tissue at the sides. Technically it shouldn’t be too narrow when comparing to my other bras so maybe it’s not projected enough. I have no idea lol but off to sale it goes.

      I am about a 28FF/30F (up to 28G/30FF sometimes), and I have short roots. You look like you're quite projected with short roots, so I can understand why you get gaping - you need the size to accomodate the projection, but then the cups get too tall?

      Feel free to look at my profile to see what works for me. Note that the bras with a picture of the bra on the profile do usually have boobs in bras pictures too (those are my sold ones). You may also want to check out Calluna too. She has taller roots than me, but you can compare how her bras fit too (hope you're ok with the tag, calluna?).

      I personally prefer the Comexim 3HCs over the plunges. They are slightly wider and shallower (so they MAY be too shallow for your projection). They do squish my boobs a bit, which is ok with me because my boobs are soft and that doesn't bother me. They create a nice round look for me though, which I prefer over the pointier looks of plunges. They also give the illusion of me having upper boob tissue, which I don't. I've been wearing 60J in the 3HCs, which are actually a bit small at the moment (I get bubbling).

    • 1

      Wilderness1 thank you for the feedback I really appreciate it! I do think I have short roots and substantial projection which has made it different to find ABTF! I will definitely check out your list of bras thank you for that :)
      Interesting, I’ve heard mixed opinions about the 3HC some say it’s too open some say it works for short roots. I’m still going to try and see if the plunge softens up :/ maybe I’ll buy the 3HC I just don’t want another dud amongst my pile of bras lol. But I am also soft so it may work.
      Ps calluna did give me some feedback too :)

      margesimpson if you get a Comexim 3HC from breakout bras you can return it, otherwise you could buy an unaltered 3hc from Comexim direct and return it if it doesn't fit (any alterations makes them unreturnable).

    • 1

      Wilderness1 thank you for the info! I’m in Canada so it’s actually a lot cheaper to order directly from Comexim for me. Hope you don’t mind the extra questions :) Do I just email Comexim and ask for an exchange/return? Same with alterations? I’m assuming I would pay for the shipping costs. Thanks again for your help

    • 2

      Yeah I’m good with the tagging. I shared my Hot Chocolate already. I do have taller roots and, I am higher set than you but, my upper fullness is still a bit shallow which does make me a bit short rooted functionally.

    • 2

      margesimpson I've actually never returned with Comexim because I always get alterations, so I'm not sure. Hopefully someone else will know?
      I live in Canada too, so I always order direct from Comexim. It's around 20-26 zloty if you get 1-2 bras. I think it goes up a bit if you get more bras/undies, but it's still super reasonable.
      I pay with paypal and have signed up for their free return shipping program, so that I can return parcels for free (they reimburse you up to $30 per return 12 times a year). Just read the rules. Once you've done it, it's really straightforward to do.
      Alterations are free, and I usually just put the alterations I would like in the comment box when I'm ordering (with a polish translation). I always put a note that says "I understand these will not be returnable", otherwise they have to email to confirm you understand that products with alterations cannot be returned.

      Thanks for the update, margesimpson . Good to hear this Basic Plunge is softening up. Interesting what Joanna said about moving the straps in. I hope that helps with the 3HC!

    Sub 6 inch wire width in a 30:11! Sub 6 inch wire width in a 30:11! Sub 6 inch wire width in a 30:11!

    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!).

      Yay high-five! Nothing like a bra that brings you comfort and joy!!! I love love love my Comexim basic, and other Comexim plunges. It’s the only style “padded” bra I buy now.

    • 1

      Perhaps if you order another bra you could send a picture of you in this bra and ask for increased projection at the wire so that you can move the band up further on your torso. You might not need a higher gore then! Asking to have the straps moved in probably would help with the lateral straps. Have fun with your new bra!

    • Just an aside, have a look at Quixii pictures of the same bra in the same size shows a really good fit. No muffin top of breast tissue in the arm pit and the breast as a whole is supported in the cup and not folded back on itself like what we see in your photos. Not enough bra space where it is needed! Enjoy the process of improving bra fit and comfort!

    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!

      glad you're happy with it! you're right, it's unaltered/i ordered it without any customizations (well i did ask for a overlapping gore but i feel like they do that with all their bras by default?).

    • 1

      yogurt I think they do that automatically with the standard height gores, but you'd probably have to ask for it overlapped if it was also lowered, I think.

    • Wow, it looks so smooth and perfect on you. I really have to try Comexim.

    • Thank you aboobaccount! Comexim is amazing. Even when I don't get a perfect fit, they're always my most comfortable bras by far.

    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.

    • Did you customize at all? This is what I want to order

    • piacere68 no customization, I ordered this as is direct form the Comexim website. From what I've seen they usually have 3x3 hooks, but I'm glad this has the 3x4. Not sure if this is a new feature? I'm looking forward to ordering a few more bras from them.

    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!

    60HH

    Didn't fit

    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.

      "thinking all bras will make your boobs look like one half of a basketball" LOL

      Does your gore tack? Do the straps feel close enough?

      I've been considering a custom order with straps moved in and reduced cup, but your cups still look so tall and straps still look so far! Maybe I am just shape incompatible/Lily-spoiled.

      Also, on the details: it seems like Comexim just uses whatever they have in stock whenever? For example, my beige Basic has the pearl on the bow, and also has lace detailing sewn all the way up the front of the straps. This actually makes the straps more supportive/less stretchy, so I don't have to tighten them as much. I've seen other beige basics with different/no strap detailing seemingly at random.

      LOL but really, I'm still very shocked when my boobs don't look like perfect half-spheres! The gore does tack. I do want the straps moved further inward, so I guess on my next order I'll be like "move them way further than you'd ever do this", and I really could stand to have the cup height shortened more. My inner fullness is bulging out but the top is still out in no-boob land, though not as bad as the 60K I tried. I'll ask for extra height reduction, too.
      I wonder why they have so much variation with that! I wish I had some detailing on these straps - they're also almost an inch wide, which is kinda crazy, and they are very very stretchy. Thank you for telling me that! I'll have to keep all of this in mind...

    • NP! Some lace on straps could be added to yours easily. I'm sure a tailor would do it for like $5, or anyone with any sewing knowledge (read: not me!). I can send you pictures of how they stitched it on if that's something you'd be interested in.

      Also, I'm not sure if they would do a more extensive alteration (something Asophisticatedpair said in one of her blog posts somewhere), so be doubly sure. Sophpair also replied to one of my comments on one of her posts and said Comexim is developing a new cut which would be more balconette-like, so I'm holding out for that.
