This bra fits well but the cups are definitely taller than I need. It doesn't gape though. I could use more room at the wire too, but overall, I am happy with the fit. I love that this fits more like a 55 than a 60. It's interesting because I have this in white as well (both new), and the white fits more like a 65 and I have to clasp it on the tightest hooks. The quality of this bra is great and it's very comfy. The straps are beautifully detailed and soft against the skin. I get a great projected and rounded shape in this bra and it has a perfect amount of padding. My breasts are soft, short and narrow rooted, bottom and centre full, with a lot of projection just above the wire.
While it mostly fit, I did need an extender with it. The cup seemed to be a bit shallow and I got slight quad which I hoped using the extender would help some, but I still had slight quad. I will probably try this bra again in a different size possibly 65H with reduced cups.
Pros: - Soft and sturdy, like all Comexims I've tried
Cons: - Tons of wrinkling, in a size that fit me flawlessly in the other three Comexims in my order - The cups did this weird thing where they folded over on the outside edge - never seen a bra do that before - Smooshed my boobs in and up, with an obvious tension line across the cup from the straps pulling the fabric too tightly across my breasts. Again, this size fit me perfectly in the other three Comexims I tried (which I ADORE and will not part with for anything)
Thinking I might've gotten a one-off fluke on this one; did not purchase, but still love the brand and will buy from them again (though not this model in this size).
For reference I'm in between a 32F and 32FF in Cleo.
This bra fits like a 32F.
The size seems right for this bra. I have tried 70 and 75 bands in Comexim and 75 is my preferred size. I have to use extenders with their 70 bands. The cups are pretty good here, but I have a Basic in a 75HH as well, and those cups are pretty good, too. The molded cups are pretty forgiving.
This bra is strange, however. I've owned two other Basics, and this bra is totally different from the others. The straps are quite stretchy, the cups are lined with ...white fabric (instead of the same color as the bra), and the cups are stitched oddly. It's hard to explain, but the top horizontal/diagonal seam is stitched in such a way that it's pretty obvious under shirts. It makes it look like I am falling out of the bra, because the seam is so indented (even though there's a whole other section of the cup above the indent). The other Basics I've owned were not like this. Read more 79 more words
A bit too much in the armpit. I got a lot of irritation from the two times I wore it in that area, but apparently every bra I'll ever have will hate my armpits and cause them grief. I do need the next cup size down sadly, but it's a gorgeous bra and I love the beige they use.
Wow, so. Ok. Lol This bra is too big, obviously. It looks comical. I have a half inch to an inch extra space on top, but the bottoms extend far enough for me. I can't comment on wire width or much else, becuase the cups are simply too big for me. The band in the 60, definitely stretches to 30. It's very stretchy, which I was banking on being as I'm not quite 28" underbust.
I do like the material a lot, and I'm excited to receive my 65G from Comexim. Speaking of which, I recieved a 65F and this, which fits more like a 65H, both today. The 60HH had cups too big ...( at least on top), and the 65F had cups that, earlier I thought were only making me quad slightly. I'm definitely keeping it, but as the day went on, I realized that the bottom of the cups were too small and makes the cups stretch (which someone pointed out on my fit request). I'll go into more detail about that later on my 65F Comexim Emanuelle review- being as I'm procrastinating with a project right now and don't have much time/ also feel that's more appropriate.
Because of the 65F being just slightly off, and the 60HH being probably an inch or so off up top, I have a much, much better understanding of what I need in Comexim. I already have the Basic in 65G on the way, but I really believe I need shortened cup height and a higher gore. I almost fall out of my Emauelle, but that may also be because it's just slightly too small. The gore in the Basic looked like it'd be fine in a size down. I'm hoping that cup height won't be an issue in 65G, but we'll see...
I want to mention that the padding in both Comexims is very minimal, and "flimsy" similar to a Freya longline--not moulded. Others informed me of this before I purchased Comexims, as I don't care too much for stiff moulding, but I wanted to include that in my review. I love love love the padding in both my Comexims.
Anyway, yeah. I have tall "roots", narrow boobs and need projection. I'm mostly even, but functionally FoB. If you're FoB and think you're in between sizes- as far as I've experienced thus far, I'd maybe go for the smaller size because the two I have measure fuller on top. If you go for the bigger size and maybe if you have short roots or even long, shallow roots, try getting shortened cup height.
Also, this 60 is stretchy, but the previous owner mentioned that it's always been. I think I could easily wear a smaller band in this, but the 60 is comfortable to me (and now I'm even more worried about my 65G).
That's about all I can say for now, as this is too big on me so anything else might be inaccurate.
This bra has a UK size tag only. This change has been made for Canadian distribution. I have the Comexim Pantera in 70H and it is slightly small so I went one size up with this one. At first try, I had a small amount of gaping at the bottom of the cups by the center gore. I fixed this by inserting the cookies from one of my Ewa Michalak bras. This is a very comfortable bra and gives a nice rounded and uplifted shape. The seams do show a bit under a plain shirt.
I am seriously frustrated with these Polish bras. The conflicting fit advice is maddening. There are people with 27" UB that say 30 is too loose, others say too tight. This bra is so far off from fitting me it is absurd. The band is so tight I can barely hook it, the cups are too small as well. My UB measures 26-29" and OB is around 35". 65G might be OK in the cup, but I doubt the band would work. Great quality and I would love to have some of these bras, but the process of finding a fit is outrageous. I hope once I find a size that works it will work in all styles, but I doubt it. Why aren't there any standards and/or consistency? argh.
