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.

"Basic" couldn't be a better name for this Comexim bra. I've been looking for a light or nude colored seamed plunge type bra to wear until light clothing, on days that I don't feel like wearing a molded plunge like my nude Freya Deco (4234), and I'm happy to say I've found it in the Basic.
When I first put on the Basic, which I did almost immediately after I got it in the mail from farflung, I don't know any other way to word this other than my boobs felt relieved. This bra is like a comfortable breath of fresh air. ... I mean, for once the wires are not all up in my armpits. And the straps are set a bit closer together than most bras I'm used to. This means that the straps don't end up rubbing into my armpits. How great is that? The gores don't come up too high, but they are higher than your typical plunge model. I don't mind, because it seems like when gores are too low, they start stabbing me in the chest. The fabric is comfortable, including the fabric that lines the cups.
Let's talk projection: the Basic will give you that uplifted, up front shape that Polish bras seem to be known for. Actually, the cup shape and lift reminds me of the way my Ewa Michalak S Wisniowka fits. The wires seem to go back far enough but then the cups bring my boobs forward and upwards. At the time of this review, I am sporting my full-on PMS boobs, so I'm able to fill the cups. I expect there will be some gapping when I lean over and stuff once my boobs retain their "regular" shape. Because of that, I'd like to see how my boobs fill a 65HH.
The band feels like a true 30" band, maybe a little on the stretchy side. I've read many warnings on how Comexim's bands are ultra firm. I'm somewhere in between a 28 band or a 30 band, which means deciding between wearing an extender (if a 28 is too firm) or wearing out the tightest hooks on most 30s. So since I'm using the tightest hooks here, it may mean trying out a 60HH or 60J instead.
As far as how the Basic looks under clothing, the seams don't really show up, especially under loose fabric. It's a great everyday bra. I'm looking forwarding to ordering my next Comexim bra

I bought this hoping for a nude t-shirt bra and it’s not going to work for that, so when I order again I will probably go with a different style. The seams are too prominent and it gives the green shape almost to an extreme, which looks sort of odd with my already high-set breasts. If my kiddo hasn’t eaten for a while, I can fill out the left cup but the right one is just way too big no matter what.
This is a really lovely bra, for being “basic”. It has bow details on the straps and the gore, with tiny faux pearls sewn to the middle ... of each bow. The lace detail is nice, and it you’re wearing a shirt that can hide the seams the lace and bows shouldn’t show, either.
How it works with my shape: As I mentioned, the shape it gives is not necessarily desirable when breasts already start right underneath my collarbones. If you want a lot of lift, this would be a great choice. My breasts appeared more like FOT when scooped and swooped into this bra.

While I don't fully live the shape it gives, it's pretty close. I needed a basic t-shirt bra that wouldn't show through, and this works.

This bra is everything I'd hoped it would be, based on what others had told me. The straps are just a bit closer together than average, the wires are narrower so they seem to actually run around my breasts, rather than too far down and too wide to the sides. The details are pretty - I enjoy the simple lacy edging on the cups, as well as the bows at the straps and the centre gore. It feels well constructed. The straps are fully adjustable, which is always nice.
Unfortunately, despite all that, it's too small in the cups for me, resulting in a bit of quadboob and some attempted crowding near the centre gore.

Alright, so this has been a total struggle for me. My Eris & beige basic in 70H both fit perfectly in the cup. So when it came time to get a black one, the 65HH should've been perfect. So I'm not sure if this is an issue of 'black bras always run one size small' or what (I have read many places that in certain bras like the deco, the black runs smaller than the beige), but it was much too tiny in the cup and thus felt a bit too tight in the band.
So I ordered the 65J, which is a decent fit but not perfect. ... Like the EM Wroszka, I am on the edge of too big for it. I'd say it fits like a 30G.5. The very lovely and helpful Amelia from Wellfitting was helping me figure out sizing. I elected to keep this one because it's pretty close, but I do wonder if 30K/65K would be a better fit. I could also definitely use higher wings to keep some of my armpit fat tucked in better, but oh well.
So yeah, I like the basic in black. It goes perfectly under my new Urkye Tuba in the same color. I wish it fit a bit better, but it might be asking too much.
