    The 34 band is much more comfortable than the 30 band, even though my ribcage is much smaller (27.5 comfortably tight). I'm having trouble with bras that have bands that are very short when unstretched. The cup is way too big. Weird, because my 30G cup is on the smaller side, and when I scoop and swoop is too small, but that may be because the wires are not wide enough. The gore of this bra is much better, so I guess this means I just need to start buying bras with wider cups. Curious how the US 34E would work for me, and if the wires would be wider than my 30G.

    This is such a beautiful bra! I first tried it in 28F. The 30F works better for me. I had a tiny quad bomb in the 28 and the cups were very short. In the 30 I have tiny gaps when I lean over, but it doesn't bother me and the taller cups look better. I wanted a slightly larger band but the 30 is the same length as the 28 I got.
    I got these from breakoutbras and the size tag only says 30F, the item description said UK 30F, US 30G.

    This bra fits well and the band length is comfortable on my 25" ribs. I just get a bit of quad boob on my larger side. The style is good for my centre-full, FOB breasts.

    Bratabase was uncertain about accepting this bra size, but I got it through Breakout Bras and it was labeled as a UK 30JJ. This is one of the styles that is noted to run about a cup size smaller than other Comexim styles, which is why I ordered a size up and I believe this was a good choice - or, as it didn't fit - the closest choice available? I had some quadding towards the center in this size and extra space at the outside top of the cup, I think this was a result of the cups being too tall and straps too wide ... for my shape (more on that below)This bra was really lovely in person. It wasn't a good fit for me as is, but after reading a terrifically informative blog entry by Erica from A Sophisticated Pair regarding Comexim and Anna Pardal alterations (http://sophisticatedpair.com/blog/a-guide-to-comexim-and-anna-pardal-alterations/) Based on that information and the way this bra fit, I believe this bra could fit in this size if I reordered with moved in straps and cup height lowered. I think those two changes would resolve the extra space at the top outsides of the cup, the cutting into my armpit and the too-wide straps. Has anyone tried these alterations in a Comexim Half Cup style? I'd love to be linked to a review of how that worked out! I wonder if I'd want to request any other alterations looking for a fitting half cup style Comexim… I loved the more rounded "pushed back" (?) shape the half cup style gives compared to the shape I get with the Ingrid Plunge. I don't have the vocabulary to describe the differences, but the half cup shape felt less extreme and more "normal" to me, though I can't even say why since I've been wearing sports bras exclusively for years!

    I'm returning this one since the cutting in under the arm and very wide strap issues are a deal breaker - they make it too uncomfortable to wear. Plus the extra space in the cup creates some instability where my breasts threaten to fall out of the cup on top when I bend forward, and then I get quadding towards the center… I wonder if I'd actually require a raised gore as well? Or even a 65O with the same alterations so the center fullness of my breasts would be contained? The quad boob toward the center isn't a great look and definitely would show under clothes so I'd have to do a lot of adjusting if I kept the bra as it is now, and I don't have enough experience to know how alterations would alter the fit.

    Honestly this color scheme wasn't the most practical for my wardrobe or skin tone even though it looked lovely on. I would definitely try the half cup style again with alterations, but I'd try a different color model. I really loved this bra when I tried it on (before I noticed the fit issues) and I'm hopeful that I can find polish half cups that fit, I just need to figure out what combination of size and alterations is most likely to work before I put in an order! Especially because looking at the wire marks from trying on the bra I'm realizing the left cup (larger side) was a tad small - the wire marks are on breast tissue on the side that you can see in a picture, but also underneath. Both breasts had wire marks from the gore. I'm wondering if the deep V shape of this bra is the real problem for me... and if a more straight across bra with vertical seams would be a better fit... Hmm.

    In conclusion: It came close to fitting, but not close enough to keep, but I'm hopeful that with alterations I could make the style work

    • chirality now I can get a better view it does look as though you have short roots, but I should let you know that Comexim HC cannot be reduced in the cup. The straps can be moved and that will help with the armpit issue, maybe the empty strap. If you needed more space in the armpit area, you can also have the wings reduced. With these alterations I would go up a cup to reduce center quadding because moving in the straps make the cups a bit smaller.

    • chirality but this could just be a shape mismatch and half cups could not be your thing, if this is a 2part HC with one seam vs a 3part HC with 2 seams can also be an issue. Don't worry too much there are plenty of bras I can't wear because the shape is not compatible with my bust.

    • Thanks! That's super helpful!

    I ordered this Comexim from Breakout Bras. The bra that I received only has the size '32GG' on the tag.

    Sizing advice from the Breakout Bra website recommends going up two cup sizes in this bra and I agree with that assessment. My standard UK cup size is an FF in most bras and I ordered this bra in GG. The cup fits almost perfectly and is very comfortable. There is very slight gap between my breast tissue and the very edge of the cup. I feel a smaller cup size would cause overflow.

    The band is very snug on the tightest hooks. Because of this Bratabase flags this bra as a non-fitting one for me but I think once I break it in, the band will be fine as I was able to stretch the band to 33" when I measured it.

    Overall, very happy with my first Polish bra that fits!

    Update - Have lost a few pounds, bra now fits fine without an extender.

    Love how it looks, but it's too shallow for my shape. Might try sizing up.
