    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

    • That looks awesome on you! I'm glad you got your Comexim sizing figured out right away. How long did it take you to receive your package (I'm waiting on one now)?

      This looks great in you!!! And Basic tends to be taller than their newer cuts so you should be fine without alterations. Congrats!! (PS, finally someone besides myself that doesn't need alterations on Comexims lol)

    • *on you!

    • Thanks lcl0706 ! It's odd, I *always* have trouble with bras rubbing my armpits and so naturally assumed that shortening the cups was for me! Comexim is magic or something.

    • Thanks! I actually ordered it from another user on here (thanks to amandafire for the fast shipping!) so I don't have info on how long an actual shipment from Comxim is taking "/

    • Glad it worked out for you.

    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)

    Fits like a large 28F or small 28FF.
    I usually wear 28F and I'm empty on top, so there's slight gaping in the top. It's kind of shallow in the bottom.
    Pushes breasts toward the center for cleavage.
    Style fits like something between a plunge and full-cup.
    Invisible under t-shirts!
    Band is tight, stretchy, stays in place, and very comfortable, in large part due to the high wings. Stretches to no more than 28" when new, which is great, because my ribcage circumference measures about 27".
    Cups are very tall and padded. Too tall for me (6.5" tall!), because I have a short torso. The tops of the cups are too wide apart, and therefore the straps are a bit too far apart.
    Fully-adjustable straps.
    I plan to try a cup size down in the 60G, because I really like this.

    Here is my review for the 60G: http://www.bratabase.com/browse/comexim/basic-170/60G/#review-13884

    This was the first Comexim that I got that was actually wearable for me. I got it here.
    I've read that the Basic runs small in the cup and stretchy in the band. I don't find that particularly true for my specific bra. My band doesn't stretch, not really, so I use an extender. Now that I have my 65Gs in hand, I would also say that the cups are pretty true to the tagged size. Though, I think they fall on the smaller end of an H. Certainly not a G though.

    This is a really really comfortable bra. My experience with Comexim, even the ones that don't fit, ... are that they are physically invisible. Once they're on, they're gone. No adjustments required. It's really nice to find such quality at such a decent price.
    Again, this gore doesn't quite tack. But it touches, so it passes. I've worn this to the playground (and I play too, slides are fun) and nothing jostles out.

    I'm a fan of this beige color. It's more of a stone shade. Gray based, not yellow and it looks really nice against my olive toned paleish skin. I also really like that it isn't called nude.

    While it mostly fit, I did need an extender with it. The cup seemed to be a bit shallow and I got slight quad which I hoped using the extender would help some, but I still had slight quad. I will probably try this bra again in a different size possibly 65H with reduced cups.

    Used to fit

    This is a great bra for my narrow/tall roots, even, center full, projected boobs. The wires sit right in my IMF with no extra space even on the sides. The only fit issue I've noticed so far is the band - it's a little stretchy for a 60 (though it's nude, so maybe that's to be expected). I wear it on the second of the four hooks, which isn't great, but isn't terrible, since there are four hooks.

    It gives a pointier shape than my Belle De Nuit and Celebration Comexim plunges, but not excessively so. It's invisible under everything except very thin, tight shirts (on those, the vertical seam shows). Overall, it is a beautiful, high-quality bra.

    Edit (10 months later): I've since lost weight, plus wear caused the band to stretch out a bit, so this bra doesn't fit anymore.

    My first Comexim experience was with the Magic Plunge from Breakout Bras, so I expected the Basic Plunge to be a very comparable bra as they seemed to share the same cut and fabrication. Originally I had ordered 60G, but found that this size was too small as scooping or pulling the band snug would cause some major overflow in the cups. I also always felt the combination of wire width/cup depth to be too small and that I was busting out of the cups, so I decided to take a chance and size up to 60H in the standard plunge cut.

    Originally I had concerns that ... the cup height would be a little too tall in 60H, but I decided to skip alterations for this first order in order to correctly assess the standard size and fit. However, it turns out my instincts were correct. While the 60G in the standard plunge cut is too small for me in terms of wire size and projection, the height was better. The 60H cup width and depth are perfect for me, but as the fullest portion of the cup is a little higher than my natural shape, I have some emptiness at the top of the cup on my smaller side. When I move, I can also see some gapping at the top of both cups that doesn't occur in the 60G. The taller cups also mean that the side of the cup and strap cause a little chafing. My hunch is that the problem is driven by the cup height because the cup width, depth, and wire measurements are pretty much the same as all of my other best fitting padded cup bras so far, and I get a pretty good fit on my larger side when I don't move my arms in.

    Thus, in terms of sizing, I will plan to ask for 1.5 cm reduction in cup height and straps moved in 1 cm, which should give me the right wires and cup volume without the cups coming up too high on my body. Other than this, the shape of the cups is awesome and fits my shape well. The taller cups even play well with my tall roots, so I am thrilled with the overall fit of the Comexim standard plunge!

    The band of my bras in this order all measured 54 cm, with one bra coming in slightly shorter at 53 cm. This matches perfectly with the average band length for this size according to the data here, so I am happy that the bands came in TTS to my expectations, as I had heard that the bands have been running smaller as Joanna tries to standardize them to their size chart. Based on my experience, I would recommend ordering your UK band size and add 2 cups to your index cup size, then converting to the Comexim cup size chart. So, for me, my normal size of 28E converts to 28:6, which becomes 28:8 in Comexim, or 60H. This is much more accurate than their size chart, which tells me I should be in 65G or 70E as my underbust measurement is kind of between 65 and 70. The bra came with 4 hooks, which I appreciate. On me, this band size feels perfect for my 26.5" underbust, and I love that the leotard back keeps the band nice and low.

    The only thing other than the cup height that I don't love about this fit are the overlapping wires at the gore. I find overlapping wires to be a bit unstable on my body, because although my breasts are right next to each other with no gap, my splayed roots work better with standard gores of about 1"/2.5 cm. This gore is extremely narrow, about half of the width I am used to, so it takes some extra positioning on my body to sit properly.

    I ordered this bra in both Black and Beige colorways, and I am pleased that both fit virtually identically on me. They are really lovely "basic" everyday bras and I expect to get plenty of wear from them. I didn't realize until I received the bras that the fabrication is indeed different from the Magic/Celebration styles I already owned. The cups are made from stretch medium-shine satin, that the band is made from a particularly firm stretch tricot. It feels more breathable, firmer, and more secure than the shiny stretch "disco pant" poly/spandex fabric used on the cups that also doubles as wing fabric on the similar Magic and Celebration bras that I own. Though this is a seamed bra and not molded, I found that the seams are quite discreet on me, and the simple trims do not show through tight clothing.

    In terms of trims, I feel that Comexim is a bit more simplistic compared to other brands, which helps to keep the costs down. My Ingrid Plunge shares the same upper cup lace, picot edged band elastic, textured strap elastic, and dyed to match plastic hardware. The Black and Beige colorways of this bra have slightly different strap elastic (Black has a picot edge and different texture). Simple ribbon bows decorate the gore and strap attachment, with no blingy charms to speak of.

    In general, I am very pleased with my first Comexim direct order and can't wait to order more bras with the lowered cup height and moved in straps. This is an awesome fit on me and I am so glad that I took the plunge to try these bras!

    This is a really nice quality bra. Its super lightweight but sturdy enough to provide support. It's also quite beautiful with its simple design. The band is a teensy bit snug and the cups run about 2 sizes small.
