Elena has Comexim's standard plunge style pattern, so nothing really to note in terms of cut. My bra came with four columns of hooks which is a nice (new?) feature.
Below are comparisons with another beige Comexim plunge [Comexim Elena Plunge Bra (315)].
They are cut the same and only differ in terms of fabric, colour, and embellishment. And price – Elena is 15 zł cheaper.
Basic is lighter in shade and is a neutral or maybe cool beige. Elena is darker and warmer-toned for sure.
Elena's band is firmer and made of two layers: one sturdy synthetic fabric and one mesh. The Basic's band doesn't have that top mesh ... layer, so it is a little more stretchy but not by a lot.
Elena has three brown gingham bows on the front, by each strap and the gore and the outer cups are covered in a stretchy mesh material. Basic has three bows that are the same colour as the rest of the bra. I personally find the Basic prettier because the fabric has a slight shimmer to it.

The 55H was too small, so I tried a 55HH with reduced cups/gore and straps moved in. Still a bit too shallow, alas.

A regular Comexim plunge with no alterations. This is the correct size for me, however the taller cups are not flattering and I get no lift whatsoever. The gore is too tall and sits on my breast tissue. It's quite nice but now I know for sure I need alterations.

Overall it is what companies seem to miss: no poking, no hurting, just support from a proper fit and what you would expect of a bra along with a pretty exterior. YAY! I've said it before and I'll say it again, I LOVE the flexibility and stretchiness of it.
Longer review for the newer people!
Me: snug underbust: 24.5, BTTunder bust 23.2, leaning overbust: 32.75. I believe I am around a 28F in UK sizes, but a 28 bands usually cause wires to be too wide and poke my armpits so this complicates determining the correct fit.
Through Wellfitting.com the bra took almost 4 weeks to make and another ... 1-2 to arrive.
Look: Very pretty for being a basic nude bra. It is not quite as yellow as a lot of nudes, so it matches my skin tone well. The fabric used for the construction of the cups actually seems to appear slightly shimmery at certain angles -- me likey. It also seems to be somewhat of a noisy fabric. For example, if you were to rub your hand on it, it would make a bit more noise than the average cloth. This does not bother me at all and many might not even notice it, but if this just happens to be a special pet peeve of yours, you may not enjoy the bra 😢. The bow on the gore is very nice and almost oversized (😍 I want it even bigger) with a small pearl on the center. Under shirts the seams to the top piece of the cups is fairly visible, especially the lacey bit. The lining is great, feels breathable but still takes care of headlights. The lift is between the pink and green shape for me, which is perfect, with forward projection.
Fit/Comfort: Very comfortable! Overall is lightweight and usually unnoticeable (don’t feel the wires!) while being supportive. After switching to a more proper size from bras that were much too small, I felt like they just had too much fabric, but this actually feels like it is really my size! The straps are a bit too wide set. Not a big issue, but it causes the cup on my smaller side – already too small for the cup — to be pushed in and pucker a bit. The gore doesn’t tack, which doesn't bother me (a size up is clearly too large and still doesn’t tack). The fabric is nice; I wouldn’t say that it feels too special, though. The band is just a little too large (24/50 next time) but stays in place decently. For the first few wears – all good now – I felt something poking me from the band near the hooks. I don’t know what it was, but it felt like something was pricking me, which was very uncomfortable for my sensitive skin. The wires are still about a centimeter too wide for me, although not to a bothersome extent.
So no fit check needed. With my band size this is the best I’ll get, which is actually pretty amazing!😊
Thanks for reading!
