    My stats for reference:

    5'3, 28G.5, FOT, tall and narrow roots, center full, projected, average to high set.

    Look:
    Jesus christ is this bra gorgeous! The entire band, cradle and cups are covered in rich crimson satin like fabric and black lace. The photos do not do it justice. The photo that shows the color most accurately is my side profile.This bra screams "My rich husband died in mysterious circumstances". There is a large, but not pouty, bow on the gore that somehow looks sophisticated instead of childish. It gives a very "out there" and slightly pointed shape like most Comexim plunges. It dosen't pass the white t-shirt test, ... but who would expect it to?


    Fit:
    This bra fits like a 28G.5, just like my Tosca, I'm super happy with it. The cups are narrow, projected and tall. Unlike the Tosca, the straps are long enough to accommodate someone taller or lower set than me. The gore is pretty low, and the wires seem firmer than is normal for Comexim. Overall, this was a "Bra Win" as Happy2BraShop would say.

      so glad it worked out for you! "My rich husband died in mysterious circumstances" is a hilarious way to describe it.

    • GimpyBallerina Thanks for selling it to me! I'm always on the lookout for older comexim plunges thanks to you, it fits like an absolute dream!

    • 1

      marilynne happy to! are the newer ones a different fit? I'm so out of the loop.

      It's too bad a swap didn't work out! I'm trying a 60G Comexim Free Time and a 60E EM M Chaberek, hoping maybe they'll fit...

    • GimpyBallerina, girl you have no idea. They're a mess of short cups and no projection at the wire. I'm a 60J in this carmen and my tosca, but I need at least an L in the new plunges just to get a decent volume.

    • 1

      marilynne omg nooooo!!! that's so disappointing to hear. I feel like the projection at the wire was a big part of what got them so popular in the first place. they were certainly the saving grace for me. damnnn 3 cups up? that's ridiculous. WHY, COMEXIM. WHY.

    • GimpyBallerina I know, right!? And their wires have gotten super wide. Take a look at my 60J scottie pictures, you'll see the difference between an old 60J and a new 60J. Literally their old plunges are the best fits I've found. I don't know what they did to the cut, but I'm awaiting @sherrach898's new cut vs old cut basic plunge review to find out once and for all, WTF? lol

    • marilynne THE NARROW WIRES WERE THE BEST PART WHAT WERE THEY THINKING. now makes me wonder if I should specify that my Basic is the old cut in my listing hahaha
      will be very curious to see this review, please share when she posts!

    • GimpyBallerina
      I know! Now I have to buy 3 cups up for volume, but it's also 3 wires up. So I end up with a mess. It's terrible. I'm just hoping enough people decide to sell their vintage Comexim's to keep me in bras forever. You should definitely mention it in the listing. If it had more than 9. Something inches of depth I'd scoop it up in a heartbeat. And it looks like your only polish listings are the mak and tropical garden at the moment. I'll definitely message you when she reviews.

      * sherrach898 I forgot you can't add an apostrophe to a tag. Lol.

      marilynne ugh good to know, thanks :( last I measured it I got 8.8" but I'll remeasure to make sure that's right (I noted a possible reduced cup, have to check old messages). The width is the exact same as all my other old Comexims though.

      I listed it on reddit but have been too lazy to list most stuff on bratabase. Starting to catch up on that now, as you've seen haha

      thank you! also just followed her

    • GimpyBallerina definitely repost on reddit, lots of people are going nuts for 28G-GG's right now.

      marilynne oooh yes good to know, thank you! will do that tonight

    This is a pretty bra and it's comfy too. The band in nice and snug and straps are easy to adjust. The cups are very tall for my short breasts, though, so there is a bit of empty space near the straps, and also a small gap near the gore on my smaller breast. You can't really see it through clothes, though. The straps are a bit widely placed for my narrow frame, so they are in my armpits a bit. Still, it feels pretty good and gives a nice, rounded and projected profile. I like it.

  3. I love this bra! It fits like my Brav Satine (30H), is gorgeous, and provides a great shape.

    -Update May 2015 - I still love this bra, though it's a tad small for me now. I never wear it without an extender and that helps mostly, but I could use a bit more cup room also these days. The top of the cups now have a bit more of a tendency to fold or crease an inch or so away from the center gore, which smooths out under clothing but is a note. I did have to reinforce the sewing attaching the hooks and eyes to the band from when I was wearing it without an extender (too tight!) but that's an easy hand-sewing fix and it's held up wonderfully.

    Carmen is such a gorgeous bra! This is a sturdy seamed cup with a red-purple fabric overlain with black lace for the 3-part cup, and a solid black band.

    It should fit someone in the 26FF range (or 28F, maybe with an extender till the band stretches out more), who has narrow roots, some immediate projection, and FOB-even breasts. The custom lower cup height is ideal for persons who have high-set breasts, narrow shoulders, or a petite frame.

    My current best fit is Ewa M in 60F CH,CHP. My main problem with comexim bras are that I have too much immediate projection, and my breasts are too heavy for the cup, so it pushes the wire down. My breasts aren't very self-supportive, and tend to weight the cup down.

    I'm in love with Comexim! Awesome fit. The cup is slightly too small on my bigger boob, but it did not bother me enough to get an exchange. The wires don't poke in my arms, the projected shape is lovely, and I get a really nice cleavage with it. The quality is very good and even after numerous washes it still looks brand new.

    Didn't fit

    Comexim Carmen plunge set size 55J which equates UK 26GG and EM PL 55H + S shorty which equates UK 6/8. The following 3 photos feature my custom made bra in a 55 band featuring reduced cups. This is an exquisitely constructed bra with the finest attention to detail. This stunning style is comprised of a lightly padded plunge cut in the lower cup style. The wires are the narrowest that I have ever encountered whilst the cups are deep and feel completely weightless regardless of the light padding. This style features black cotton lining the interior of the cups, whilst the exterior is covered in a delicate ... black lace overlay featuring floral embroidery covering a luxurious red satin base whilst the upper edges of the cups are covered in black lace. The detailing is flat and not visible beneath a blouse. The straps are fully adjustable and the band features 2 hooks.

    I should clarify that Comexim do not currently have size labels available for this custom size. Therefore Anna, the company owner, always uses a size tag printed for another order and carefully hand prints the "55J" size on the tag. I can confirm that all of my orders in size 55J are consistently presented in this manner. I am enormously pleased to find a company whom is willing to provide 55 bands upon request!

    The cup width measures 13.2cm from tip to tip of the underwire. The cup depth measures 22cm inside of the cup, from each end of the underwire across the deepest line of the cup. I have measured the band as follows. Unstretched in a resting position from clasp to clasp measures exactly 52cm. Fully stretched to the maximum length from clasp to clasp measures exactly 68cm. It would be ideal for you to compare these measurements against one of your newer best fitting bras, as this will be the best method in determining if this will be a good fit for you.

  7. I just received this, so review will be pending wear. The color is OK, it's a weird dark pink shade. I'm not a fan, but I don't hate it.

    The wires are wonderfully narrow. The cups nice and deep. The wings and wires are short under the arm. Everything I need in a bra. Hopefully it wears well.

    I finally got my Comexim bras in today, a Laura and a Carmen! They're one cup size too big but so beautiful.
    The Carmen seems to fit a lot like a Freya Deco - the cups are moulded and similarly cavernous. Wires are narrow (like Freya balconettes). It gives a wonderful rounded shape. The lace is soft and I could not see it underneath a tight t-shirt, except where it wrinkled a bit where it was too large for my smaller boob. The band is comfortably tight - firm but stretchy and fits comparably to my other 28 band bras. This bra will fit like a Freya 28H would.

    • Hi, could you let me know how shiny this bra is? it appears rather shiny-appearing in the stock photo so I wondered how that compared to in real life..
      Thanks! X

    • The pink is shiny satin, the black is lace.

    • Is it a very obvious shine? Sorry about the questions, I'm just debating over two red lacy bras from different Polish sites
