My boyfriend and I have both been away from the house we are renting for Christmas and have only recently come back, so I was just able to try on the Comexim bra he ordered me for a Christmas present today. He purchased the black Comexim Basic from Wellfitting.com - I told him the size I should be using their sizing system (32K - I am usually 32H/HH in Panache and Curvy Kate) and gave him some suggestions but also the freedom to pick out something he'd like.
Unfortunately it didn't fit, so I guess this confirms the rumours that I've heard about the Basic running ... about a cup small. The band felt quite firm as well, probably more like a 30 - so the 32K/70K in the Basic seems to run more like a UK 30H. I was sad that it didn't fit me, as it looks like a really attractive and well-made bra! The wires feel great, really firm and supportive, maybe on par with/a little firmer than Panache wires. This trial bra also confirmed my suspicions that Comexim's padded plunges are perfect for my shape - I have the 'omega' shape where my boobs are fuller and wider than the point where they are attached to my body, and also a pretty tall root - I have tissue reaching nearly to my collarbone. My breasts are additionally extremely close set, and the gore was perfect - no digging at all! The fit was nearly perfect on my smaller breast, so I could tell the shape was great - rounded and uplifted - and it gave a nice amount of cleavage without leaving me feeling jiggly like my Freya Deco Honey sometimes does.
I didn't get a chance to do any measurements - my boyfriend has packaged the bra up straight away to ship back for an exchange for a 32L/70L - but I wanted to write something that would hopefully help anyone who is thinking of ordering a Basic. I would definitely choose your larger band size if you are between two, or size up if you prefer a less firm band - although I usually prefer to wear 32s while measuring at 30, I will be ordering this in the 32L rather than a 34K from Wellfitting as I don't wish the band to stretch out and become too big for me, and also because the 32K felt firm but not uncomfortable. In the event that the band hurts me after extended wear as opposed to just trying on, I will use an extender.
I hope this is helpful to anyone thinking about trying the Basic despite not being able to provide measurements! I think it's a great bra and I'm looking forward to being able to wear it in the correct size for me.
