This bra is to die for! Black mesh over a beige background, lashings of floral and scalloped lace, pleated ribbon edging and a gigantic satin center bow. The straps have a slight glossy sheen in the center and gold hardware. It’s romantic, sexy, and a little vintage looking… the quality is excellent and all the details make this bra look more expensive than it really is. I was worried about how the bottoms would fit, as Comexim seems to run on the smaller side and I’m quite paranoid about panties digging into my fleshy sides. However, the matching thong in medium was a good fit on my 36” ...hips, and together with the bra it really makes for a beautiful set!
The fit by all accounts is true to size for a standard 60J. The band felt extremely firm when I first tried it on, but after a couple wears it’s much more comfortable, sitting snug and totally parallel around my back. It has four sets of hooks rather than three, which is a nice option to have as far as extending the lifespan of your bra. The way the ribbon is gathered and stitched along the top of the cup doesn't close it off, the way that the ribbon on Brigitte does, for example. It will show faintly beneath thin, non-opaque shirts, but on the whole it's remarkably smooth beneath heavier t-shirts and dresses.
Like my other unaltered Comexim plunges, I could do with a bit more center projection, or maybe a lowered gore; the gore tacks at the bottom but refuses to touch my sternum at the top. However, when I do press it fully against my chest, there’s no quadding (I’ve included pictures of this for reference https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> The black mesh wrinkles just a bit at the sides of the cup on my smaller side where there is just some slight emptiness, but overall the cup volume seems pretty perfect.

This is my first Comexim bra. Ordering from Comexim was intimidating, so I ordered through Sophisticated Pair. Erica had me try on another bra first so we could determine sizing before placing a custom order. The Charme is a beautiful bra, with nice lace and ribbon detailing. On the manufacturer's website, the bra looks darker, but in person, you see the nude color under the mesh more clearly.
Me: Close-set breasts with wide roots. I'm somewhat even, but slightly FOB. Half-cup bras work best for me.
The band length will be an issue because I'm wearing it on the tightest hook and it's brand new. But Comexim is not ...always consistent with sizing on their custom bras, so it's hard to say if the issue is the 40/90 band or if the issue is that they just didn't make the bra to the set specifications (which Comexim is apparently notorious for).
Sophisticated Pair is able to order a wider size range of Comexim bras, which was one of the reasons I chose to order through them. I tried on the "Stiff Capuccino" bra in 40G before I got this one and we decided to go with the 40H with a reduced cup and to move in the straps for my sloped shoulders. I definitely have to "swoop and scoop" with the bra because the cups are too big if I don't fully pull all of my breast tissue forward.
The bra gives a nice, rounded shape, similar to my Freya bras, but the Comexim has a much better tack and it's much more comfortable than my Cleo Marcie and Cleo Blake, which have great projection, but have high U shaped wires that press a little too firmly. The Charme is definitely a bra you need to wear with a thick shirt/dress or camisole as the pleating, lace, and seams will show through most clothes.
I wish Comexim wasn't so hard to order from. I like the bra overall and I would consider getting another Comexim bra if the process of ordering wasn't so difficult. Sophisticated Pair has cut back on ordering from Comexim due to too many errors with the custom orders.
If you fit within the standard Comexim sizing and don't need a custom size, then the Charme is a lovely bra if you want a sexy, sophisticated bra with a hint of a burlesque look. Read more 288 more words
I bought this bra in 55M, with reduced cups and with the straps moved in 1cm.
I've only bought bras from Comexim before in 55N, and the 55M appears a bit too small in the cups. If I order from Comexim again I'll probably get the alterations in 55N.
Again, amazing quality from Comexim, as usual. I really like the gold fastenings they have on this bra, gives it a special touch. I've always wanted a black mesh/lace bra so this was a must-buy for me when they released it!
Band feels true to size, perhaps a tiny bit on the small size. I can't really comment on cup size as it is a bit too small for me (I ordered in a size down as I thought I had shrunk a bit, apparently not), but I think they are the same as other Comexim plunges.
Unfortunately, there's never enough immediate projection for me in Comexim bras (I'm evenly distributed and quite projected all around) which is annoying as they have such gorgeous designs.
I bought this bra second hand from another Bratabase user. It must have some serious voodoo, because it fits both breasts really well. Absolutely no gaping on my small side and no quad boob on my large side. I nearly always get at least one of these, if not both! It's also attractive and really comfy. The straps are soft and the band is reasonably snug. I'm really pleased with this bra.
This bra is gorgeous and the nude color under the mesh is perfect for lighter skin tones. The bra fits me pretty well, but the lace/ribbon at the edge makes it a bit fuller coverage than I had hoped for. I did order this with reduced cups and straps moved in, and I think that the alterations were done because if I measure to the cup edge and not the edge of the lace/ribbon it measures similarly to my other Comexims with reduced cups. I also ordered the matching thong in medium and requested it to be made a bit lower lower rise, this I believe ...was done because I tried it on over another pair of Comexim panties in the same size and it does sit lower. I think I may be listing this though because while it is beautiful and a decent fit, I don't think it will get a lot of wear since it is more full coverage than I prefer. I'm glad I got the 70 band though because this does run a bit small making to just under 30 inches before wires begin to distort. I would say it fits more like a 65H than a 70G.
I do have this listed, but if no one is interested I may sew the lace/ribbon trim piece down to make it lower coverage. Read more 122 more words
This bra has the tightest band of any of my Comexims. It also has the narrowest strap placement, making it the most comfortable. I can move my arms without any rubbing! It gives the 2nd best cleavage of any Comexim I've tried, behind Ingrid. The overlay of black lace over beige is absolutely gorgeous.
This bra is gorgeous to look at - very sexy and pinup/goth looking. However, the materials and fabric are rough and stiff and not comfortable at all. The lace also shows under clothing quite a bit. I no longer own this bra as the cups were slightly too small for me, but I don't think that I will reorder it in a larger size since even though it is super pretty, the cons out way the pros for me in this style.
At first I was a little disappointed because the fabric felt so wired and stiff, and it makes a little squishing noise if I squeeze the cups, but I’m hoping it will soften a bit with wear. When I put it on I get a little bit of quad boob, but it still feels really comfortable on, so I think I will wear it quite a bit anyway. The band feels perfect on me and it stays in place , so I don’t need to pull it down or anything during the day, which is a big plus for me. I will try to update this after a few more wears https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
