    60H

    Didn't fit

    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.

    Didn't fit

    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.

    75H

    Didn't fit

    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).

    55H

    Didn't fit

    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

      You can post a fit request, this should help you get some detailed answers to your questions! :)

    • Yes, post a fit check!! The basic also runs small from what I understand.

    • immodestmouse lcl0706 yes, I think I will, but I have already ordered the size up (a size up in the bravantgarde, too 😃). I'm expecting it to arrive maybe late next week or the week after, so I'll do the fit check when I try those on. Thanks!

    • Cymbidium if the pics I'm seeing on this review are you, it does look about 1/2 cup too small.

    • Nah, it's not me. I noticed the same thing and thought it fit kind of similar on me and her.

    • I have less armpit tissue (for lack of a better term) and the same gaping. My strap placement isn't too wide either.

    70K

    Didn't fit

    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.

    75M

    Didn't fit

    **Standard Comexim with no customizations**

    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.**

    65J

    Didn't fit

    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.

    60J

    Didn't fit

    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.

    • Ask for them to increase depth at the wire but keep in mind that it might not get done. I don't believe that it would merit sizing down. Moving the straps in and reducing cup height makes it fit smaller (1-2 cup sizes, I've found), so order at least a K, maybe even an L. It's a crapshoot. If they increase room at the wire and reduce cup height and move in straps, hopefully it will be about a cup size smaller and a 60K will be perfect!

    • Sonya thanks! You're like the Comexim alterations whisperer. The 60J is still giving me a bit of quadding on my larger side so I might go with the L.

    • Looks pretty good though! Pleased that you are getting closer to your best fit.

    • You're welcome. Another option for an alteration is cookie pockets. It would give you the option of using a cookie on your smaller side.

    65G

    Didn't fit

    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.

      Sorry it didn't fit right. Are you planning on exchanging it?

      It’s definitely small. Sorry. I think that you’re bigger than me (?) and I need 65HH. Will you try another size?

    • 1

      Did you order from breakoutbras? If so, the good news is easy returns, but their sizes often seem different, cups smaller, than bras direct from Comexim.

    • 1

      Whoa! Yes, this is definitely too small. Are your body measurements up to date? They look very far afield from the measured depth on this bra, that's the only reason I'm wondering. If you're now a bit smaller, a 2-cup jump should do the trick--if you are still the same as those measurements suggest you may need more depth.

      Are you wearing a J-hook or crossing the straps in these photos? Some people need to do that all the time, so I wondered if that is how you normally would wear this bra? If so, for a good fit you need to not only figure out your conventional cup depth--but then you also need to determine, based on the cup's shape and proportions, whether you would then need to size up FURTHER to get a good fit with the cups tilted more centrally, as they are when a J-hook is used (sorry that sounded convoluted, haha!)

      Perhaps you know this and take it into account systematically already but since this bra was such a tight squeeze, I thought maybe you were still in the process of figuring out this brand. They tend to run small and narrow in your size range, so if you have any side boob volume at all, any time you want to wear the straps this way, you want to make sure that that side volume will have enough room. I have virtually no side tissue but even in brands that run much wider and larger in the cup, if I use the J-hook in my regular size, it can easily displace the outer wire/cup forward juuuust enough to mess up the fit--so I size up 1 cup usually.

    • 1

      Wilderness1 and veggiechic Yes, I definitely want to try other sizes. I mostly tried this size because of the 65J 3HC I got recently, which is hilariously huge on me, so I figured I was more than 2 cups off and sized way, way down. It was a Bratabase bra though, not a Breakout Bra, so I can’t return it, but I got a very good deal; it’ll eventually get listed when I don’t need it around for comparing sizes/fits/cuts within Comexim.

    • Calluna I’ll definitely try another size, probably 65HH. I tried a 65J Ingrid from Breakout Bras, and never reviewed it because I didn’t quite know how to put into words that it felt a little too small swooped and scooped, but comically huge as soon as things settled. The 65J 3HC I got recently threw me off though in terms of sizing and made me think I was thinking way too big, but maybe that’s just because it’s a different cup cut than the others I’ve tried?

    • wendybien my body measurements are from October 2018, so it’s been a while. I haven't had to change clothes sizes in any way or had any major lifestyle changes, so I haven’t thought I’d need to update it. If anything I’d assume I’d gone smaller, but I’ll check up on that when I get the time.

      And no, actually, but I am one of those people who has to have them crossed all the time, so it’s funny you mention that! My right shoulder has some issues, so it cannot bear much weight, and just about everything will immediately slip off of it unless it’s at an angle that it can’t, or tightened to hell and pushed as close to my neck as possible (which is what’s been done in this photo). This bra has no j-hook and can they multiway, but once I find a bra that fits me, I plan to alter the straps to multiway. I had no idea though that it could change what size bra I’d get.

      Years ago, a 26GG/55J from Anna Pardal by Comexim was the only bra I could get to fit me. Perfectly! But time passed, and I’ve clearly changed sizes, so I’ve largely been focusing on Comexim since they made the only bra that fit me before. I’ve tried a 65J from Breakout Bras (maybe too big? Fit weirdly to the point it was hard to review), a 65J 3HC (HUUUGE on me, even more dramatically than this bra is small), and this bra. I’m going to be trying a 65HH plunge next. I know I’ve got the band size right, so now it’s a matter of cups.

    • wendybien Sorry I failed to tag you in the above post, I tried!

    • 1

      Robras ok I am a teeny bit less confident about the effect of crossing straps since I really only have 2 bras where I do that, but when I think of how they work with straps crossed vs. not crossed, and just picturing what it does in terms of repositioning the cups, I do think it will still have a similar effect to a J-hook--just more of a moderate effect because crossed straps aren't secured to one another in the middle of your back so there's a little more leeway for the boobs to "pull back" against the tension of the more-centered straps compared to the really strong central pull from a J-hook..

      But so, yes, if my reasoning is right, I would think you'd still benefit from choosing sizes based on the assumption that your strap positioning will tilt the cups in a wee bit and even bring the outer wire ends forward slightly. This does open up more space at the center which is good for fitting center fullness, but can also create more than you need causing either spillage in the theoretically "right" cup volume or gaping in a larger volume. Plus, since Comexim is notoriously narrow, this effect might cause you to get wire sitting on tissue at the sides, idk, hard to speculate. I see you have an unusual number of nonwired styles in your bra list so if you've noticed lots of bras cause discomfort in the underarm area that might be a factor to consider, together with wing height of course.

      Just generally, I've noticed--and heard other people comment--that changing size, or even going back to a size we've been before, typically changes our shape enough that the same brands that used to be perfect aren't great anymore, and the brands we couldn't wear sometimes now turn out to be an excellent option. So don't be scared to experiment--you may find new choices out there!

      I do remember that in the past couple years, at Nordstrom Rack, amazon and elsewhere I noticed a lot of paramour/felina molded cups in racerback styles. Most of them fitted freakishly large in cup and small/firm in band: I needed a 34 (34!!!) band to be able to breathe (bearing in mind my underbust is a bit under 28" these days, snug not even break-the-tape tight). So, I am not sure if they are still in circulation or if they have since rectified the weird sizing but if the same ones are still around, I think they could be worth looking at for anyone who needs this centered strap positioning.

      Robras i believe multi-way conversion is one of the alterations you can request from Comexim directly as well.

    • cupandahalf Yes! I’ve asked about this. I want to make sure I get my size correct before I place an order though, so I’ve been delaying it.

      wendybien First off, thank you for all the info! I pretty religiously stick to multiways over the J-hook because with one shoulder so sunken, the hook ends up way off center and uncomfortably under my shoulder blade.

      I had NO IDEA about that with regard to changing sizes – I thought your shape always stayed he same, and only your size changed. Mayhaps I’ll have a bit of exploring to do!

      I have a ton of non-wired bras. 80% of which are not listed here because I haven’t gotten around to all of them! Anyhow, that’s because it’s a lot easier to find sports bras that multiway and let my shoulder move pain-free than it is to find underwire bras in the right size. I get little support, but I can cross my straps in the back.

      Bras being too tall and having wings that come too high at the sides is a chronic issue for me. Charlotte form Parfait by Affinitas fits me PERFECTLY in 28H, except its wings and wires are too high at the armpits.

      I live SUPER rurally, so trying things on in-store is rarely an option :/

    Didn't fit

    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.
