Before I get into this reveiw, my shape is: narrow, projected, low-set, very full-on-bottom, short-rooted, very center-heavy. I also have a very, very squishy ribcage and a very pronounced tail of spence.
Now that we have that out of the way, I seriously think that this bra is mislabeled because it is SO the wrong size. It is so beautiful, and I really, really, really-really wanted it to work. I've heard such nightmares about ordering from Poland, and from Ewa Michalak especially, so I was really invested in learning whether or not Comexim was going to be a match for my difficult breast shape ("you're so lucky to have ... an in-matrix size!" they told me, "you'll be able to find bras at every department store the USA has to offer!" they told me). When this baby came up on r/braswap, I nearly peed with excitement. I couldn't imagine my luck!
From all of the research I have done, I honestly expected this to have similar immediate projection to my Ewa Michalak (which has plenty.) I am sad to report that this is the most shallow bra I have worn; It seriously rivals some Victorias Secret bras that I've tried on. Quadboob and ribcage squish every-damn-where; even my fiance immediately used the word "quadboob" and I was not even aware that he'd been listening to all my bra-fitting ranting.
Also, let's talk about the band for just a second: this bra is labeled as a 70/32, but in order to get the bra to 31" I have to pull so hard that the underwire distorts. Not sure how someone with a 31" ribcage is expected to squeeze into that and get a good, supportive, comfortable fit....
All in all, I am quite disappointed in Comexim and I doubt I will be purchasing one from the manufacturer. Perhaps if a 75E comes up on r/braswap I'll give that a try, but the odds of that happening are similar to the odds of getting struck by lightning whilst being bitten by a shark. I guess I'm just going to have to suck it up and order from Ewa Michalak!
