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. Read more 90 more words
The wires are very good and my armpits are actually safe. However... I am quadding about. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> I had this problem with my entire order (all 60HHs in bras and a swim top in 65H). It may be period related. Oh well. Anyway, good for close set, projected boobs. This has been altered and has reduced cups/gore, straps moved in, and 3 hook back instead of 2 hook back.
The black basic is the SMALLEST, TIGHTEST Comexim you'll ever find. According to the helpful ladies at Wellfitting, the basic bra fits tightest of all Comexim models, and the black basic bra fits tighter than the taupe shades. On top of that, I converted wrong and ordered a cup size too small. For reference, I wear 34FF in Cleo and 32G in Freya. The 75HH Comexims I have fit me much better. If I were to reorder, I'd get the 75J because of the tightness in the black colorway. Despite my sizing woes, this is the correct shape for me (narrow roots, full on top).
I am fairly new to properly fitting bras. I measure ~24.5 snug, ~23 BTT, and ~32 overbust. I have only ever owned a Freya deco soft cup in 30D, which which was really the wrong size and gaped at the top, and a 28F (28:7) Freya strapless, which is a decent fit but I belive the cups are too wide and the band is extremely firm. Nothing else has fit nearly as well as the deco strapless. I think that is due to the rounded top of the cup, which tend to fit better.
I decided to order from Wellfitting.com because as I ...understand their 26/55 bands are returnable while Comexim's are not. It took about 2 weeks for the bra to be made/shipped and another week for the package to reach me. The packaging didn't seem that damaged, just a bit dirty and worn at the corners of the box. Both of the bras I ordered were in great condition. Upon first seeing them I thought they looked just a bit cheaper than I expected. But once I put them on they felt amazing!
Pros: The basic beige is a 26H (26:8). I loved the shape it gave: much more projected and inward-pointing than the Freya's slightly squashed down and outward-pointing look. Compared to the Freya strapless it felt so light and non-constricting, like the bra would move easily with you and mold to your shape rather than holding you strictly in place (very important to me). I loved the shape it gave: much more projected, rounded, and inward-pointing than the Freya's slightly squashed down and outward-pointing look. There was no quadboobing, uncomfortable wires, and the strap placement was great. The band seemed very stretchy, which was a relief since after the Freya is hooked it feels as if the slight stretch it can achieve is very difficult to get. It is not as shiny as some of the pictures on here make it look. I don't think I am a true 26 band so I can't be sure, but I beleive it runs true to size since it stretched fairly easily to 27''.
Cons: It did not fit. I suspect it was 1/2 a cup to 1 cup too small, but I ordered the next two sizes up just to be sure my inexperience would not cause me to be incorrect. The problems were that gore did not tack, there was too much booby near my armpit outside of the cup, and too much tissue not enclosed by the top of the cup. It might be due to the too-small cups causing the seams to be placed wrong, but the seams were very prominent under a shirt. Swoop and scoop might not stay in place with 26 band too well, but I can't tell since it does not all fit inside. If you divide the bra cup into four quadrants, the lower outer quadrant would have a small area (maybe 1\2 a little finger) that was not filled.
Where some advice would be helpful is regarding the different fit on my breasts. On my larger one it seemed just a bit small and like a cup size up would be perfect. On my smaller breast when I swooped and scooped my nipple was almost falling out. This did not happen on my larger breast even though more tissue was outside of the cup and clearly had more trouble fitting inside. Despite not all of me fitting in the cup it still gaped ate the top a bit with the little booby. What would cause these differences (mainly the gaping)? Would it be a too-loose band or different shaped breasteses causing this? Do you believe a cup size up would aggrevate the gaping?
THIS WAS LONG Thank you for reading and any help. I really want this to work, and I have not found a better alternative to comexim
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. Read more 363 more words
Band fits well, comparable to Ewa Michalak 75 bands. The side wings are very wide (which is awesome) and amazingly don't cover my entire underarm! Wires are nice and narrow, and straps are less on the edge of my shoulders than some other bras. The cup height is incredibly too much for my vertically short, FoB, high set boobs, so it is very hard for me to gauge how the cups fit since the top half is empty and nearly sitting at my collarbones. I have the straps adjusted to maximum shortness, so if I were to keep this bra, ...the straps would ultimately be too long. Quality is very nice -- less luxurious and soft than Ewa Michalak bras -- but still lovely.
Based on my experience with this bra, I will request reduced cup height for any future Comexim orders. The shape, uplift, and comfort are definitely worth giving another size a try!
**My sizes for reference: UK 32J/JJ; Ewa Michalak Sm 70JJ/75J; Ewa Michalak Pl 70K/75JJ. I am FoB, close set, high on chest, and have soft tissue.** Read more 83 more words
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. Read more 76 more words
Definitely a closer fit than the Ingrid 60HH! Still a little quadding on my bigger side, but I'm happy with this size. The bra is really pretty and simple. The cups DEFINITELY cut into my armpits, though I'll update later with comfort info -- it's looking like I'm going to order a 60K Ingrid with reduced cup height and straps moved in. The straps on this Plunge aren't as wide set as many UK brands' straps, but they are still a bit too wide for my narrow, sloped shoulders. The shape this bra gives me isn't as rounded as I like (a little Madonna-y), but it's not noticeable ...under shirts. The material is smooth. The tag scratches a little in the back, but this is a literally unavoidable issue for me for some reason. I'm going to keep this because I can't return 60 bands to Comexim but also because I like it. Edit: I also think I need more immediate projection than this bra gives me. Should I ask for a customization of increased depth at the wire, and if so, will that negate the need to size up with reduced cups and put me back at a 60J? Edit 2 with comfort info: My armpits hate me. That is all. Read more 102 more words
I really wanted this bra to work, and it almost did! The band felt perfect when worn backward, so I think it was a function of the cups being too small. Swooping and scooping made everything painfully tight, so I made things “settle” before I took pictures (some of which weirdly didn’t upload?). Boobage was escaping out the sides and the top, and the wires were really cutting into me right where the front of my body transitions into the side of my body. Even with things settled, it still felt much too tight in the band, the bottom of the cup went unfilled, and my boobs were looking for every chance at escape. I think I’ve got the right band size, but am either 1 or 2 cups two small.
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.
