This was my first Comexim bra and I purchased it when I was about a 32J (now 30HH). The band was too big, but it was still wearable on the tightest hooks. The cups were a little on the large size too, so I only wore it a few times when my breast size fluctuated and I wanted to wear a loose band for comfort, and even then the cups gapped. It was only really wearable at those times because my breasts are quite full on top. Really though, this size would best suit a 34J.
The wires on the side are quite low so pinching was ... never a problem and they never dug in. The wires are also quite narrow (as tends to be the case for Polish bras), which I love because I have quite a narrow root. The narrow gore is great for close set breasts. And the shape Comexim bras give is very uplifted, round, but not too orb-like. The Free Time pattern is pretty cool as well. I love that Comexim does so many prints. The material is super comfortable as well... the lining of the cups are so soft, in the right size, these bras are a dream to wear.
The cons to Comexim bras, I find, is that the cup height often comes up a little tall.. This can be amended by emailing them when ordering and asking for a reduced cup height (they don't charge for this).

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.
