FINALLY, I found a really well-fitting Comexim! I've tried a few different plunge styles, which fit me way better than most other bras, but I've always had a little bit of front spillage that made them not as comfortable. I noticed that Comexim had a few different full coverage style soft cup bras, so I finally gave one a chance, and I am glad I did! Firstly, I had a few alterations requested, though I have no idea if they were actually done. (I wish there was a note or something that came with the bras stating what customizations were completed. Ah, well.) I asked for straps narrowed 4 ...cm, gore raised to 3.5, and the cup reduced. I don't think the gore was actually raised, because when I measured it, it came to slightly above 3 cm. Luckily, it works and I don't have any front spillage. I'm pretty sure the straps were narrowed, because I've had issues before if I don't request that. I usually order a 80 cm band, but from the few reviews on this bra I've read, I saw it was really stretchy, so I went with a 75. I'm glad I did, because it fits really well. The top of the cup has a decorative, lacy edge, and has a thin strip of elastic across the edge of it that keeps the bra in place. I also like the stretchier, softer straps on this style as opposed to the stiffer ones the plunge styles have; I find those are just itchy enough to make me less than ideally comfortable. There's no padding, so I have to be careful in these colder weather months. Overall, I am really pleased with the Emily. I ordered another one, along with an Eve, so once those come in the mail, I'll review those. Let's hope they fit as well as this one! Read more 208 more words
I finally bravangelized my mother who has been wearing a 32A cup for as long as she has been wearing bras. She is a very petite woman, so I knew this was incorrect. Sure enough, I measured her to be about a 25" underbust, and 30" bust. First I talked her into trying some 28D bras, which were easier to find, but most of them were too tall in the cups. I finally found her a plunge bra that fit perfectly, and then ordered her this Comexim because it was the cheapest and therefore the best to use as a guinea pig.
I asked for the straps to ...be brought in 3cm, the center gore to be reduced 1cm, and the cup height to be reduced. Does anyone have this bra with an equivalent cup volume? I know Comexim has a habit of letting alterations request slip here and there, but I have nothing to compare this one to. This mostly fits her, though she still has some gaping on top if she leans forward the tiniest bit. This is going to be a good base for ordering more Comexim in the future. I also think that I may have just changed her opinion on unlined bras! Read more 100 more words
This bra's measurements have been altered
Straps moved inward 3cm, Center gore reduced 1cm, and Cup height reduction
I picked up this bra on ebay and expected it to be too big in the cup and too tight in the band, since I have heard that Comexim bands run tight. But was so excited for the chance to try it that I took the chance. Yes, the band is too tight, but not by very much. I have lots of 38's that are every bit as snug. I'll probably wear an extender with it to keep it from digging in over the day, but I was surprised how well it fit.
The cup was also a better fit than I thought. It ...fit perfectly along the wire, with lots of immediate projection. In the future, I will probably go down a cup size, though, since the upper part of the bra is a bit wrinkled for most of the month. (It's a perfect fit for a week or so!) I got this at the same time as a Comexim Dottie in the same size, and I would have to go down two sizes in the cup for that one to look less ridiculous. I don't know if that's a difference between the padded and the soft cups, or if it is a shape issue, but it makes me unsure what size cup I need in Comexim bras.
The bra is prettier in person than it is in the pictures, but it is still a bra that seems to mean business. It looks like a practical bra that is a bit fancy but very sturdy. I feel like a festive peasant when I wear it. Read more 167 more words
I got the sizing wrong, having only ever tried the comexim basic before, but I'm happy with it all the same.
On my 29 inch underbust, the 65 band fastens, but I find it more comfortable with an extender, so will buy a 70 next time. Much more open up top than the basic, so in spite of the low gore, I don't seem to be spilling out of it, even though I'm center heavy.
I would prefer the gore were a little more narrow at the base, but that's a very common complaint for me and I think I technically can wear this bra ...without altering the gore.
I get a little gaping up top, which makes me think I might do better in 70HH than 70J the next time I order, but I'm not completely positive yet.
The wires are perfect, the depth at the bottom of the cup is very comfortable. The whole structure feels very stable and I think will be a really good bra for me in the right size. 65K is not that size, even though that's the size I would have needed in the Comexim Basic if my breasts weren't too tall for it (the top of the bra curved in a way that cut into tissue even in the proper size on the basic).
Will definitely keep the comexim full cups on my list. Read more 127 more words
This is the third Comexim I've tried, actually, though I haven't written anything up for the other two yet (I'll get around to it eventually). It's definitely the closest fit I've tried? This one I got direct from Comexim and requested the gore reduction and straps moved inward 2cm. That part is great. For once I am not having issues with either pain from the gore being too tall on a full cup or straps constantly falling off. I'd sized up in the band size somewhat foolishly, though, so now this is a problem. I should have at least gone with an ...80H instead of the 85G, though with how big this one is measuring a 75HH might be a better bet, but live and learn.
Since I picked it up literally because it was on sale enough to be a cheaper test to figure out sizing and alterations, I didn't pick it for the look, and I don't particularly like the design. Admittedly it's a lot prettier in person than I found it on the website, it's just not my cup of tea.
As far as the cup fit goes, I'm not quite filling the tops, especially on the side that's smaller, though the bottom seemed okay after I scooped and positioned the wire. My shape is more even than FOT or FOB, so I think it just expects a little more top fullness than I've got. Though also I'm finding the Comexim wires are a little narrower than I really need, and paired with the large band, they don't stay in place all that well, which contributes to not filling the cups out properly as tissue escapes out the side. It's not uncomfortable because the wires are so soft, but it leads me to not feeling very supported. I may attempt to make my own modification to shorten the band, though, because otherwise it seems wearable, and I can't return it anyway, and I could definitely use more wearable bras as at the moment I have none, haha.

My shape: full on bottom, soft tissue, narrow shoulders/roots. This was one of my favorite bras for years. So soft, so comfortable! But this one is pretty stretched out and much too big in the band for me now. This was my "gateway" to stretch lace top cups, which are the only kind of bras that fit me perfectly.
This bra is SUPER stretchy. The band stretches almost 10"!! There is elastic on the armpit side of the cup and the fabric itself is pretty stretchy. It doesn't give the same perky rounded shape that my Coco does but it looks OK. Very comfy since it's so forgiving.
Another size mismatch. I’m bummed, because all three of the last bras I ordered from Comexim don’t fit. Wompwomp. Other than the wrong cup size (my own fault) I love this bra. It’s one of my favorites.
It looks like I have finally found a Comexim in which I need a 65! Huh. (I've so far only tried on black Comexims, which, like apparently most black bras, run small.)
The Emily is lovely, more so in person than I would've expected. It feels soft all over, even the lace / embroidery for the most part. The back is a (very stretchy) mesh. The three hooks are great, and I would really like to see more bras with three hooks just in general.
Now for the bad news, at least for me. I tried this bra on and immediately noticed that I wasn't getting enough support. I went ...to the tightest hooks, and then resorted to also tightening the straps (I almost never need to tighten straps, like, at all), but I think this unlined bra might not be structured enough to really give my breasts the uplift I'd like. (A third vertical seam on the cup would probably help; I've also found that fully-lace cups are excellent for this.)
The elastic cuts veeery slightly into my tissue, creating a little bit of quadding, but due to the lack of support I'm almost more tempted to try a cup size smaller -- say, a 65HH?
But only almost. I suspect this bra and I are simply not meant to be. Read more 115 more words
