    Fits

    I feel nothing. Yes, NOTHING! I have never owned the bra that fits 95% and feels like air!
    The bra is used by 1 or 2 girls before but it's in excellent condition. It's so light - none of my padded Comexims feels that light.
    The band it's definitely stretchy because it fits me well without digging in and feeling it tight on the loosest set of hooks. Also I love the idea of 3rows - maybe that's the option I should be getting now?
    The straps are moved in so they work perfectly on my small frame, they're fully adjustable and soft as I love.
    The wires are so ... soft and feels (or rather I can't feel them!) great.
    Cup depth is good as well - tiny quadboob on bigger side but nothing major to make me annoyed
    The bra supposed to have reduced gore and cups I think this is done as the cups are like my 70F standard plunges which is 1 cup smaller as a sister size, so it doesn't affect me actually
    Overall I'm very pleased with the bra!
    Also I've received my blue BiuBiu dress thy someone shortened and it's also great! Just little too loose but would love to get another one!

  2. I adore this bra. I'm not sure how else to put it haha. It's the best fitting Comexim I own. The band is definitely stretchier than others in this size. I could put it on the middle hooks but I'm trying to stick with the loosest as long as possible.

    The website pictures don't do this pattern justice. It's much cuter in person. I love the contrasting bow, the plaid, the navy. It's so soft and comfortable. I wore it all day yesterday with no problems. The gore definitely tacks, in contrast to my Poison Ivy. I feel like it keeps everything where it belongs. The wire width is perfectly narrow and the cups are the lovely, projected but uplifting, rounded cups Comexim is known for. Zero complaints from me.

      kerniss , thanks for your detailed reviews. Comexim has great potential, and reviews like these 3 together help shed light on the sizing.

      Rock on, (semi) boob twin!

    • 1

      I figured they might be helpful or even entertaining to some, so thank you so much acee ! : ) And don't worry, I still got three more Comexims to review, so there will be even more to look at LOL!
      Rock on, fellow boob-wielding warrior!

    • kerniss Did you ask for a specific measurement to move the straps in? If not, about how much would you say they were moved?

    • Cymbidium I didn't ask for anything specific! Last time I asked for them to be moved 4cm and it was a disaster, so I figured I'd let them do what they would normally do again. This was kinder to my poor armpits.
      Having never had one without this alteration done, I can't truly say. :( Even the second-hand ones I've bought have had this done.

    • kerniss Thanks! I was thinking of ordering one with the straps moved in, so this helps.

    • Cymbidium definitely! If you get straps rubbing all in your armpits, I would definitely get them moved in.

    • I'd be interested in any of the altered ones that didn't work for you, I've been wanting to try the same alterations.

    • Look at how far that is away from your armpits! *u* ~Magical~

    Free Time is so good looking! The double bow is gorgeous, and I love everything plaid. I didn’t realize that I want a denim blue bra before I got this in my hands. It’s really cute but also has a slightly masculine touch.
    This bra has reduced cups, reduced gore, straps moved in and 4x3 hooks. Unfortunately, I am starting to realize that reduced cups don’t really work for me, as it makes the bras fit a bit too small. This one doesn’t really quad too badly, but it sort of smushes my boobs together in a way that doesn’t happen with standard cups. The gore is also ... pretty far from tacking. The band in this bra is really big. Although it fits okay on the tightest hooks, I would probably need to shorten the band if I were to keep it.
    Otherwise the construction and materials feel very lovely. I was very happy to find this in Bratabase, but unfortunately I need to confess that it’s not the best fit for me. I’m sad that Free Time is now discontinued! I would totally order a new one otherwise.

    This fits much more comfortably than the Basic I have, just because of the stretchier band. I like how smooth and soft the fabric is, too. But once again, the straps are too far apart. I'm afraid to take them off and try making the sewing adjustments myself; I've never done that with padded bras before. Also, the right cup, which is my smaller breast, had a lot of empty room near the top. This would more than likely fit me better with a smaller band and cup size.

    This bra is so adorable - it's even cuter than the photos! The navy blue fabric along the top of the cups is very soft and almost silky (but not shiny!). The band is definitely a little looser than my other Comexims (I have the Irish Coffee, Arizona, and Stiff Cappuccino [which is an Anna Pardel for Comexim bra]). Even though the band is less tight than the others it still fits great and does not ride up at all - and I'm able to wear it on the last hook (this Comexim has 4 rows of 2 hooks). The straps do slide more easily than my Arizona ... bra, which is my only complain about this Comexim (though they do not fall off of my shoulders at all so it's not really an issue - I have VERY narrow shoulders too). The cups come up a little higher too which is really nice and works really well for me. I seriously LOVE Comexim and want to buy ALL of their bras lol. This one will definitely and easily become one of my new favorite bras to wear!

  7. I adore the toned-down colors and defined lines of this bra! No lace or frills on this beauty (the very unobtrusive bow between the cups doesn't count). The materials are sturdy, not luxurious (still comfortable, though), but that fits with the style of the bra. The bad is a true 32, not tight like my 70G - Comexim » Tropical Garden (191). Also, it comes up higher in the wings than the Tropical Garden., which is great since it covers a little more bulge that way. Cups are very nice and narrow as expected from Comexim, and the top curves in just enough to keep my boobs from escaping. Altogether what I want in a bra; I am in love!

    • Your review of the 70G basic is almost word-for-word what I would have written (I had to check and make sure it wasn't me!). It sounds like Free Time was better for you. How did you find the strap distance and projection around the gore in this compared to the Basic? Those are the same problems I'm having with it (I do love it overall though).

    • P.S. any alternative bra recommendations are welcome! Thank you :-)

    • Projection for the Free Time is decidedly better than the Basic, but that is partly due to the lower gore. It does run deeper at the gore; having pulled them both out and looked at them both while I'm wearing and off, I can tell there's more fabric. I don't get any quadding in this near the gore and the gore tacks just fine (it's not as hard a tack as I get in other brands, like Freya or Cleo). I like to contrast that with my Tropical Garden in the same size, which also has a lower gore than the Basic but tends to run a little shallower at the gore than the Free Time; I can get minor quadding in the Tropical Garden, but not enough to be a problem (it's still a bit deeper than the Basic).

      Straps are ever so slightly wider set in the Free Time, though. Out of the three I own, the Tropical Garden seems to come in the narrowest near the armpits.

      One issue with the Free Time that I have not experienced in any other of the Comexims I've tried so far: The ring that connects the straps to the band in the back is too large and does cause me occasional discomfort. My skin is obnoxiously sensitive, though.

      My Free Time does run stretchier in the band than the Basic, so if you are borderline to loose in the Basic, I would size down to a 65H in the Free Time.

      The Basic is still my best thin t-shirt bra because the fabric and seams are smoother than on the overlay lace style Comexims.

      My only current recommendation other than the Comexims I own is the 32E Cleo Lily (possibly the 32F if you can tolerate a slightly wider wire, which die to ribcage issues I cannot). Projection is somewhat deeper, the straps are set slightly lower by the arms and narrower, and for some reason it's just more comfortable for daily wear. Gore is higher, though, if that causes any trouble for you.

    • Thank you for your detailed reply, that was so helpful!

      Hmm, okay I want the color and no-show of the Basic, with the strap narrowness of the Tropical Garden, with the center projection of the Freetime. Kind of makes me want to custom order a Basic with straps moved in and lower gore, but I'm not sure a low gore would support the weight enough. I'll keep wearing the one I have and see how it wears.

      I've been looking @ Cleo Lily a lot, considered buying a few times, but I am wary because looking at it again, the way the sides swoop up into the strap right by the underarm reminds me of the Panache Jasmine and Envy that I have. I haven't been happy with the shape of those - they've ended up too splayed and down-and-out for me, with the straps carrying a lot of weight and chafing. I think my breasts are closer together and heavier than those allow. Have you ever tried either of those on?

    • I haven't tried either the Envy or the Jasmine, though I have been curious about them. I don't know what the structure or materials of those bras are, but the Lily has a fairly stiff mesh that sort of forces me to the front (without being pointy, since I have the projection that it requires). Something in my head says either Jasmine or Envy has stretch lace, which if it's anything like the material on the Andorra I tried, wouldn't work for me.

    • So the strap distance on the Lilly really doesn't bother you? IDK why it looks wide to me, maybe the balconnette cut?

      To answer Panache Q, they both do. Jasmine is single layer fabric all over, including stretch lace on top. Envy is double layer fabric all over, including the stretch lace portion. A greater % of the Envy cup is stretch lace, but it's much, much stronger than that on Jasmine (and Andorra, I'm told), thus I actually was able to size down a cup and get a perfect fit in Envy (my complaint about it being "down and out" was that its perfect fit only lasts 2-3 wears, then must be washed to restore it's support).

    First the good: FINALLY a bra with narrow enough wires, strap placement that's not trying to saw off my arms, and a narrow enough gore. It also has nice, tall wings so everything stays in place and looks smooth and yet somehow doesn't jab me in the armpit.

    As far as the band sizing, I originally planned on ordering a 70 but after discussing with Anna at Comexim and reading a few reviews that the bands run tight, opted for a 75. The band measured in at 33 inches fully stretched, so it does appear to run small. Right now however I'm vacillating between 32 ... bands (that ride up a bit) and 30s that barely close or require an extender, so maybe a 70 that runs a bit small would be ideal. I don't know; still undecided here. Even though the band only has two rows of hooks (3 columns), wearing it on the middle or tightest closure feels comfortably firm and secure (I think due to the wings).

    I get a ton of gaping and some empty space at the top of the cups, unfortunately. It isn't visible under a tight shirt but it means it isn't as supportive as it should be and I don't get va-voom cleavage you'd expect from a plunge. Even though the depth at the apex is perfect, I think I need to size down one to two cup sizes in any plunge style bra to make them work with my shape and soft tissue. The cups have a soft cotton lining and are lightly padded/lined (similar to an EM, possibly a bit less padded).

    My only issue with this bra (other than sizing) is the straps. They are perfect as far as the width setting but the width of the strap itself is narrower than EM or Panache straps, so I'm curious as to how comfortable that would be for all day wear.

      Next time you order from them, you can request a reduced 'bowl' (cup) so there isn't so much extra fabric at the top of the cups. I've heard that works well for us some people (and am curious about it for myself as well!)

    The band is a 34 which I will alter down to be a 30 since its stretchy. The cups are nearly 2 sizes too large, which is what I was expecting. If I wear push up pads in the bra I get some killer cleavage though, Hahaa! I love the way the cups come together at he gore- really allows for my close tissue without pain. Not sure if that would be the case if the cups were the correct (smaller) size though.
    Will update/add once I finish alterations
    This bra's measurements have been altered
    Altered straps, i altered the cups as they were too open on top & was about a cup volume too large. i also moved in the straps. i am not a seamstress so it doesnt look perfect but its comfy & i love it!

  10. The Free Time is a pretty good fit, I do get some gaping near the gore, but it's minimal and is better than the alternative of quadding or just being squished. Some 65G's kind of work but if the top is too closed off they are a complete failure. As long as the gaping is minimal and I don't feel like I'm swimming in it I can deal with that little quibble. As far as I know there are no alterations on this bra, and I'm kind of surpised it fits as well as it does since I've had issues with the more open on ... top Comexims being too tall and having a lot of gaping. The band on the Free does run a bit big and I'm surprised it's an issue for me since I'm on the larger side of 65. Also I'm not sure if it's just mine or if it's just how all the Free Times and similar models are, but the top seam isn't super smooth, and this is a bigger annoyance to me than it probably should be. Between the seam and the band being a bit big I decided to let this one go, I also didn't feel like I would end up wearing a plaid bra much even though it is very cute.
