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 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
EDIT: In my excitement I didn't realise that there actually ARE 3 hooks, not two :X

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)

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.

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.
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

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.

Oh Comexim, how I love thee. This bra fits me pretty well, with just minor gaping at the top. Because it's molded the gaping doesn't show, however. I'd probably do better with a cup size down at the moment, but during that certain time of the month I'd fill this bra out pretty well, so I'll keep it. The wires are narrow (which I LOVE) and the fabric is this black hole black as night black black satin. It's lovely. The tops of the cup are pretty high. Any higher and I couldn't wear it comfortably, and if I actually bought a bra from Comexim I'd order this model in a reduced cup height. The band is true to size. Nice rounded, gathered in shape. I feel very secure in this bra and wear it to dance practice because it keeps me from bouncing.

Me: soft, narrow, empty on top, but even in a bra
This is exactly what it says on the label - a nice basic bra. Out of the box, it was very tight, but it stretched out significantly after 2-3 wears. I would never wear a 60 band in EM, but this 60 stretches out to 29". The elastic straps are also very stretchy as is the elastic in the armpit, but I find it comfortable.
I managed to guess my size on the first try. I did this by choosing a 60 band and then calculating the difference between 60 and my most accurate ... bust measurement of 88-89 cm and choosing that size on Comexim's chart.
EDIT: I have shrunk in size and this no longer fits. I would guess I was a 60F/G or 65E/F now.
Overall, the shape is minimized compared to an EM bra, but not overly so under clothing. Because of the shape of the cup (it is shallow on the bottom), I get the tiniest bit of quadboob in this size, but it is too slight to go up a cup IMO and it is not visible under clothing. It is labeled as a plunge on the Comexim website, but it has a higher gore than any plunge I've owned - so it is very secure even for soft breasts. The narrow wires with a significant U shape also contribute to increased security.
I think this is a quality bra, but it is one step below EM for me - the fabric looks a little cheap (shiny) and the underwires more easily distort under tension. This could lead to a little bit of a balancing act to find the correct size for someone with larger breasts (who needs a very tight band fit) - on the one hand the band is very stretchy, but on the other the wires will pull out if the band is too tight.
The seams do not show under a thin shirt so it's a good t-shirt bra.

I was completely attracted to the look of this bra based on the users' photos. I didn't realise there was more than 1 colour, so I didn't specify the colour when I ordered. Thankfully, Comexim seems to have the default colour of the Basic as beige. For a 'nude' bra, this one sure tries hard to be pretty. I'm not actually crazy about the shiny fabric. I find it tends to look like the 2-dollar bras we can get here in the market! But otherwise, it's reasonably attractive, with bows and lace that doesn't really show up under clothes.
The colour is actually darker and duller than I expected. ... I would describe it as a 'dusty' beige and actually appears to be more 'nude' under clothes than the regular beige bras.
The size is perfect on me, and I'm so glad I lucked out on the first try! As per Bratabase advice, I went with my usual band size and used the Comexim size chart only for the bust measurement, which brought me to 60H. For reference's sake, I usually wear a 28F in most UK brands.
The band is tighter than Freya's (I find Freya's bands a little loose for me), and has 3 hooks per column. I loooove how the band sits nice and low on my back all day long but did not feel unnecessarily tight. What is this sorcery? With my Cury Kates, I feel the tightness of my bands all day along, and even then, sometimes they threaten to ride up!
The straps are closer together than the other UK brands I've tried (that tend to dig into my underarms and leave dark marks that don't go away). They are also fully adjustable, soft, and stretchy. All in all, the comfort of the straps is amazing.
I must admit the feel of this bra isn't as luxurious as the UK bras I own. But with a so much better fit, I would definitely buy more of Comexim's bras! I just hope they would come up with more designs, and more styles like the strapless, wireless, etc. The cost of this bra is on par, if not a bit cheaper than UK brands, as the shipping is so much more cost effective, with tracking to boot!
