    Oh man. Where to start. How about with the inconsistent bra sizes? I already own a basic that I got at the end of 2018. That one fits great in the cup and despite my weight fluctuations, I’m able to wear the band on the tightest or middle hooks and feel comfortable. With this new one I just got in the mail, it’s just too big all around compared to my 2018 one. The band rides up on the tightest set of hooks and the band stretches to 33”! The cups float away from my body as well as the center gore. I was really hoping to get ... another just like my 2018 version since I consider it my nude work horse moulded bra. Bummer, but this has to go back. I guess if you like something, it’s best to buy multiples at the same time to ensure a more uniform fit. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

    Basic briefs: I purchased the briefs in a size large and they fit really well. The fabric is silky smooth with very subtle lace strips up the front on both sides. There are tiny nude bows at the top of each strip of lace accent. Very minimal, but still very lovely pair of panties. The elastic is nude with a nude cotton gusset in the crotch.

      Hmm, interesting. I compared it to my 70HH basic padded plunge (I bought it at Breakout bras 1-2 months ago), which I did get to stretch to 32.5 inches when I measured it initially . Although I r.n. I'm wearing 65 bands in ewa michalak (bm), I'm wearing comexim basic in 70.

      I also tried this bra in a 65J, *way too tight* for me r.n. (amongst other fit issues) Although I did get it to stretch to 29.5 inches.

    • **although I believe I gained weight btwn the two try-ons, so there's also that issue...

      BraOdyssey It can be so frustrating with Comexim. I currently have the Basic in sizes, 65J, 65K, 70J, not including this 70J I just reviewed. Lol I’m looking for the Goldilocks Basic bra I guess.

    May 15, 2021: Updated Review:
    Due to weight gain this bra is now my go-2 lined bra for everyday wear. Prior to this I was wearing a sister size of 65K, but I find the over all proportions of the 70J cup more fitting to my bust. The apex of the bra is in a much better position compared to the 65K. I wear this bra on the tightest set of hook for the best fit.

    November 26, 2018: Original Review:
    I picked up this Basic Plunge after loving the same style in a smaller size, before having my last child, and so far it’s fitting the best out of ... my most recent purchases. Only thing I wish I could change, and I just might have it fixed, is having the straps moved in a little. It sits just ever so slightly wide for my liking. It’s also a bit of a drag that this bra fits me best on the tightest set of hooks, considering my older one ran really small and tight in the band for its size. Only other thing that slightly bothers me is the ripples in the outer layer of fabric. The outer layer doesn’t lay smooth over the under layer of the cup, but can be fixed when I open up the side to move the straps in. Over all this is a decent buy and I’m glad I at least have something on hand that gives me the upfront cleavage I like.

      Oh I love the back, specifically how collaborates to keep the wings level, tense and steady. Must be very comforting. Good lifter too ;)

    I ordered this bra from Breakout Bras. Unfortunately, there was too much gaping in the cups. : ( I compared it to 32G Basic Padded Plunge and I think 32G (70HH) is a better size for me.

    Of note: I would consider 30FF to be my accurate UK bra size right now, but I'm borderline btwn 30 and 32 bands presently. Since European bras are known for being firm in the band, I chose to sister size up from 30FF ----> 32F, then add the two recommended cup sizes that Breakout Bras suggests for this style. So, that put me at 32G, and I believe that is the ... best fit me currently.

    Also, of note: when I go to the Comexim.pl website, according to their size chart with my current measurements, I would fit best into a 32G/70HH as well. So, the Comexim size chart seems to work okay (*at least in this instance) for the padded plunge style for me. Also, someone designed an app to translate one's best size btwn UK bra size ----> Comexim size/ UK bra size -------> Breakout Bras recommended size. Here is a link to the app http://comeximcalc.herokuapp.com/

    Edit: This app was created by Redditers u/mathandplants, /u/EuphoricToe1, and /u/winsbe01 (sorry, I don't know their real names)!

    My point is: as long as you know an accurate UK bra size, you will be probably be able to get your size in their padded plunge (*it worked for me at least).

    I'm still glad I ordered the 32GG just to compare.

      Thanks for the review and the calculator link! I think the calculator is pretty accurate. Unfortunately for me I don’t think the plunge will ever work due to shape mismatch (cries) but the 3HC did so I’m okay with that, lol

    • 1

      margesimpson , ha ha, thanks for the comment.

      I decided to try plunges after someone commented on an ABTF reddit page re: plunges being good on FOB & projected types, I believe.

      The first plunge that I tried was actually this Chantelle St. Germaine plunge bra https://www.bratabase.com/browse/chantelle/saint-germain-plunge-3411/ which is a discontinued bra, purchased it online.

      It ended up not working out (I actually didn't add it to Bratabase, I should've but I didn't think of it) because the band was sooooo firm (I bought a 30 band). The firmest band I've ever tried: I guess Chantelle (European brand) is known for being esp firm in the band, I believe. Even though the band was so firm, the straps were way too big. Also, the cups were kind of flattening my chest, and gave me an unflattering look. lol. So, not a keeper at all - I sent it back.

      I don't think Comexim padded three-part half-cups (padded 3HC) would work for me at all - and that's just a guess based on what they look like, and I'm not brave enough to try them anytime soon, lol. Maybe after 6 months, or something. But I think that's about 1/2 of Comexim's collection? Of course, there's no where I can go and try on Comexim bras in my city, I can only order online (it is what it is!).

      I don't think their padded 3HC's would work for me b/c of my overall body proportions - and this isn't really talked about on this website, but I'll bring it up: I don't wanna be so padded in the front when my butt is so flat (currently!) Lol. Maybe I need to go to the gym and start doing squats. But I don't wanna be so padded in the front, and flat in the back, lol, I just want to be proportional.

      I want to try again Comexim's unpadded half-cups - as long as their lightly lined that would be okay. I think it would be a good look for me to be a little more "minimized" sometimes. I'm happy that the padded plunge seems to work for me a.t.m, but I still gotta look for bras that work for other outfits. Also, for summer bras (so, something lighter). Thanks for the read! : ) : ) Take care.

      margesimpson , sorry I have some further thoughts (of course) later on...

      I guess Comexim has this more extreme plunge style, e.g. like this bra https://www.bratabase.com/browse/comexim/ginger-plunge-bra-365/

      I haven't tried it at all, and I'm not exactly sure what type of shapes this more extreme plunge would work for (I'm center-full, so I'm not sure if I would fall out of it...),but it's something to consider, I guess.

      With the Basic Padded Plunge, it would still show with some of my V-neck t-shirts, so this more extreme type of plunge I might try later on, perhaps it's better for summer? At the same time, this might be horrible on me, lol, so I.d.k....

    • 1

      Okay, I just read re: the comments on Ginger, " it doesn't draw the bust forward like most polish bras" so I'm not sure I would ever try it.

      I'm not a fan of the "East-West" look, and I also need projection (immediate projection, I believe) in the cups, so I don't think their extreme plunge would work for me. (not that you asked...lol : )

    • 1

      LOL yeah I’m hesitant to try the extreme plunge too I think I would fall out of the middle too...Thanks for the thoughts on it!
      Ah yes the days when we could go into stores and try things on. Now I do way too much online shopping and returning and selling etc. But as long as there are some good finds here and there, it’s good

    The fabric is super soft and springy feeling, comfortable on the skin. The foam feels sturdy but not thick. Nice, round shape. This bra does not work for me, I'm center full and so I think it fits well at the outside of the cups but I spill out and quad in the center.

    I actually tried this from breakout bras, hence the size I provided, and in the nursing style (so with nursing clips). I’ll preface my review by saying I own 4 comexim bras, two in a 60HH (always too tight and used an extender, always slightly small in the cup) and two in a 65HH (that fit well previously), none of which fit any longer due to a size change. I chose not to order direct from Poland this time, and I’m glad I didn’t. There’s a couple things wrong with this bra for me. First, I had a hard time figuring out what size to order. In comexim ... sizes, I needed 2 cups up from a 65HH. I settled on a GG in breakout bras size. I was unsure if a 30 or 32 band would be best, as one of my 65s is very firm and one is more comfortable. I decided on a 32 after discussing with breakout bras. Unfortunately, the band is too loose. I can fasten it on the tightest hook and could go tighter, even with my preference for wiggle room. The cups go up unusually high in the armpit area, and the bra doesn’t let my tissue fill the sides, either due to the band being large or the nursing alteration, or possibly the cups being too large. My tissue is pushed from the sides and the sides flatten out where the nursing strap is in the cup. So maybe that is too tight and trying to function as the bra itself? I’m not sure, but it causes gapping at the top of the band on the side, cup wrinkling, and the cup flares out oddly away from my armpit area. No adjustment to the bra makes this better. I considered sizing down in both band and cup, but this cup gives me a good fit in the front and a size down would likely have some quadding. I also find the wide straps on this bra to be painful compared to my thinner ones on my other comexim bras. Overall, this rubs and hurts, which is a first for me when it comes to comexim. While the wires are narrow and fantastic, the high sides still lead to armpit discomfort. Overall, this is a disappointment to me and I’ll be returning the bra.

    Size is about right for me in this style, so is wire width, but that's about where this bra stops working for me.

    My breasts are quite soft, and I also have loose skin due to major weight loss, and this shape is not at all ideal for that.

    I've been told that this is a plunge that center heavy breasts don't fall out of. No such luck.

    The center gore, as always, is positioned too wide apart for my breasts, causing me to spill out the center and quadboob as my boobs fall to their natural position in the middle of my chest. There's no cup or ... gore there to stop them, so I end up with some pretty significant spill in the center.

    The wires, also, while the right width, are shorter than I'm strictly happy with. I prefer a tall wire.

    It's a very nice bra, but even altering the gore won't make this one a good fit for my center heavy/pendulous/soft/close set boobs.

    Had such high hopes for this one, but this just isn't ideal for my shape.
