    Used to fit

    I have to share this review as an adventure because I am now the proud owner of a FITTING BRA!!!

    It even seems like it fits better everytime I put it on. The Comexim Ingrid Plunge has gotten some flack for its pattern, but I think the antique styled floral print is perfectly fitting a rural farm girl surrounded by flowers. The padded plunge is a very "in your face" shape - the girls are up and out and as my sister said "it's not that they look bad...they're just so...prominent." This is a function of the wearer as well as the shape, because I've been ... disguising my breasts with frumpy tops and sports bras for so long I'm not sure she was even aware of how very 'prominent' they are. The shape isn't perfect for every top or occasion, but the bra fits and is in my possession and is the first non-athletic bra to do that ever, in my entire life. I won't go into my feelings about this - we probably have whole spaces somewhere on this site dedicated to tearfully share the life changing event that owning a bra that fits truly is - but I know many of you understand what it's like to be confident and comfortable with the entire front half of my body for the first time since I was 15.

    The bra itself - is comfortable, supportive and well made. I have narrow rooted, close-set and center full, pendulous breasts that are soft and also full on top. This can be tricky to fit I think, since I am prone to having breast tissue molded into places that aren't attractive or comfortable - like the cleo marcie I tried earlier this week that had wide wires and a high gore - tissue was pushed out to the sides as well as over the top of the wires at the center. In the 65N - Comexim » Burgundy Half Cup (357) I had empty space on the outside of the cups and overflow in the center. I think I would have had the same problem with the Ingrid padded plunge had the cups not fit almost perfectly. Another plus is the padding disguises any other weird soft tissue stuff that might be happening inside the cup itself.

    I'm sure I'll find better fitting bras in a shape I find more flattering in the future, but I doubt I'll ever feel as grateful and overjoyed as I do now reviewing my first ever fitting bra. Yay!


    Update - October 2016
    Now that I've worn this bra few times for long days and have gotten over my ecstatic 'fitting bra' glow (seriously, I've been wandering around in a well supported haze, gleefully whipping off my shirt for anyone showing even the slightest interest). But now I realize that I probably need more immediate projection for a truly comfortable long-term fit. On a few drives home I've had painful wires digging into my ribs below my IMF, and noticed the inside of the cups have some wrinkles after wear. From what I've learned here I believe the wires are pushed down over time and dig into my ribs due to lack of immediate projection in the cup or an overabundance of immediate projection in my boobs! It's not unbearable by any means but definitely something I'll consider for future purchases.

    • Congrats! It looks lovely on you! The colors in that floral print look nice with your skin tone.

      Yay congratulations!! Comexim is wonderful. This bra looks fabulous on you. I have a circular love/hate relationship with its pattern. I'm not a fan of florals or anything that could look like my grandmas curtains. I really didn't like Ingrid when i first saw her. But she has won me over somehow & now I love her colors. Sometimes i still think "man it really does look like a couch" but not enough to stop me from (finally) asking Comexim to make me one :-P

    • 2

      I dont think anyone in my family ever had a floral couch

    • 1

      dbmamaz We were the only ones around that I know of. We rescued it off the streets (yeah...it was gross but we were super broke) and the pattern was almost the same as this one. Let me just say this pattern works better on a bra than on a couch.

    • lcl0706 My partner had the same "couch" reaction to my Ingrid. He detested it because it reminded him of the velvet orange/brown floral couches that were popular in the 70's/80's. After he said that, Ingrid was ruined for me as well. We had that same couch when I was a kid. I couldn't get it out of my head after that.

      It looks great! Out of all the bras I've ever seen, this is literally my favorite pattern. I love the earth tone florals. I've one on order, hope it fits as well as yours!

    • 1

      Stunning!! Looks fantastic!!

    • 1

      It looks fabulous on you, congrats! I also had the same reaction when I got my first Comexim plunge in the correct size for me. It took me quite a while to fall for Ingrid, as in general I don't like florals, but she won me over in the end with her unusual Autumnal colour scheme.

    • 2

      Ok, just one more comment - sometimes some of my Ewas give me that same feeling, like, woah, nelly, I know i have boobs but, thats a lot! But I've started to get used to . . .thats just the body I have and its ok

      But otoh, they are a lot less pronounced in a BM

    • Thank you so much everyone! I love this place :)

    • This bra looks lovely on you! 😊 Regarding the pattern, I guess it's always a matter of preference, from my side it's the prettiest bra ever :D

    • 1

      OMG thank you for this review! I have center-full breasts and I was so on the edge about getting the Ingrid.

    • 1

      dezeiram I'm so glad my review was helpful! I've gotten so much help and advice on bratabase but haven't gotten to do much contributing or reciprocation yet since I'm still learning how bra fitting and everything work. I hope the Ingrid works out well for you!

    This was my first Comexim order and I couldn't be happier. I read a lot of measurement info and fit checks here and on the abtf reddit to try to figure out what size to get (I usually wear a 30D in Cleo/Panache bras). And I also decided to bravely go for an alteration on my first order as well - I asked for a narrowed gore because I routinely make that alteration on bras myself. And it worked out great! The fit feels perfect to me and it is the most comfortable bra I've had yet! The gore is perfect. There's no gaping or empty space anywhere, ... the wire width is perfect, and it has nice high wings, which I love. I was a bit nervous to get the plunge style because I have tall (but shallow) roots and bras sometimes cut in on top, but not this bra! And the fabric is beautiful!

    So, yeah, I think I'm a Polish bra convert :)

    Thanks to everyone who measures their bras and posts reviews and fit questions - you are helping more people than you know!

    Narrowed gore

    Updated on Feb 24, 2018 Flag this


    • Congratulations!!

    • Yay! It looks great on you!

    • Yay! I love Polish bras too. May I ask how you did the narrowed gore when you did it yourself?

    • Thank you!

      Sunflowergrrl - There are a few tutorials out there for narrowing gores that I learned from, like this one: https://brasticmeasures.wordpress.com/2015/01/04/fit-issues-center-heaviness-is-a-dominant-shape-trait/

      It's a very simple alteration, and reversible if you don't make any cuts to the fabric. Basically, you just pinch the gore in and sew it down along the pinch line. It's very helpful to pin it first and try the bra on while it's pinned to see how much you need to take it in.

      Sometimes I need to overlap the top of the wire channels as well, because otherwise the angle of the cups changes too much. This was a useful tutorial for that step: https://imgur.com/a/RmUTO

      If you are at all handy with a needle and thread, and you think it might improve a bra, it's totally worth a try. You can always undo the stitches if it doesn't work out.

      I'm glad you like it. I think customizations aren't free anymore though, as of a few months ago.

    • larabloom you sure? I've read a lot of recent reviews stating the alterations that didn't require more fabric were free! :/

    • larabloom you sure? I've read a lot of recent reviews stating the alterations that didn't require more fabric were free! :/

      I'm not sure. I read an article where someone (maybe Anna Pardal?) said that someone else had been right that doing alterations for free was rather optimistic or something, but I can't find it now, and I see September articles saying that they 'might' charge a small fee in the future from third parties. Hopefully I'm wrong! The longlines come at a small extra fee; I thought having almost any other alterations came with a small extra fee too, but that you got as many alterations as you want for that. But short of buying another bra, I'm not seeing a way to check that!

    • 1

      larabloom I ordered two new bras and asked for the straps to be moved in 2 cm...they said it was fine, and I didn't pay anything more...let's see if the alterations will be done or not... hmmm

    • 2

      As far as I know customizations at Anna Pardal cost $10 for as many alterations as you want. Cookie pockets and nursing clips are free.
      Comexim longlines are an additional 20 PLN, all other alterations are free.
      Ewa Michalak charges an additional 20 PLN + 6% (international customers) for special sizes (ex: 60 bands) and special cuts (ex: So to CHP) but performs no other customizations.

      Ugh, that should say S to CHP. :/ autocorrect.

      Very useful review, especially being able to compare the regular cut with reduced cups. I've just ordered my first Comexim plunge, asking only for cookie pockets to be added, as I wasn't sure which, if any, other alterations I might need. I seem to be a similar size and shape to you, so it's very handy to know that reduced cups are unlikely to be a good match to my shape either. Thanks for sharing this!

    • 2

      alexad You're welcome!
      And yes, I think my biggest issue with the altered cups are that my fullness is all in the centers because I'm conical/tuberous.
      I think ayone who has lots of fullness all around might be alright with that alteration, but otherwise it takes the center depth near the gore/coverage there away.

      Good luck with your order! I hope it works out well for you :D

    • *is xD

    • I know it's been a while, so I hope you won't mind a further comment on this, and perhaps helping to clear up a bit of a mystery for me?! I have trouble figuring out where I have any fullness, as I don't seem to have any at the top, or bottom, and I assumed that centre full meant a lot of cleavage, which I also don't have (although I'm close-set). What I do have is a rather conical shape, so all my volume is in the middle of my boobs, but I have little overall fullness - could that be described as centre fullness, or am I misunderstanding?

    • 1

      alexad I don't mind at all! =D
      I honestly think the term is used by people to mean both. I may be mis-using it, but I describe myself as very center full and your shape sounds very similar to mine.

      I'm a bit more tuberous, so my shape is pretty much as narrow and projected as you can get, but I call that center full a lot because I don't have your typical FoB or FoT shapes. I basically have almost no bottom tissue and very little upper tissue.

      When others say center full however, I usually think they are talking about how much tissue they have towards where their bra gore would be. =)

    • alexad Actually, now that I think of it I probably use the term interchangeably hahaha

    • I wish you could edit on these because I keep hitting the "add comment" before I'm done. Dx lol

      Anyway, I think instead of saying center-full for how much your boobs stick out, "projected" is probably more accurate. =)

    • Thanks for your reply! I felt a bit bad for bothering you with something so trivial once I realised you were dealing with some health concerns at the moment (hope things are improving now?).

      But anyway, I think we may indeed be quite similar in shape. I'm pretty much all central projection (which, because I'm so pointy, also equates to immediate projection), and I have wondered whether I might have mildly tuberous breasts, although I've never sought a medical opinion on that.

      I also don't know whether I'm becoming more narrow, or just beginning to recognise how narrow I really am - the wires of almost every bra I own in the correct volume seem to extend quite some way beyond my roots. So, I really think Polish is going to be where it's at for me.

      Thanks again!

    • 1

      alexad Aww it's really np at all! I think I'm ok, things haven't been as bad for about a week now. :)

      It's hard to tell when it comes to being just mildly tuberous. I couldn't tell for a long time if I was sagging or tuberous, and then I realized that my breasts don't really lie below my IMF at all, so definitely tubey!

      The wires are where I have my problems too, and it's actually causing a bit of indecisiveness about my size right now. 30E FoB/even bras work depth-wise, but 30D-DD wires are best. I have Comexims in 60F-65E-65F-60G right now and they all basically fit somehow.

      Anyway, but yeah, I'm sure Polish will work great for you! :)
      The next best that I've found fit-wise was Fauve Grace.

    • 1

      I'm glad things are getting better - the pain sounded awful!

      Yes, I'm self-supporting too, so I've never been sure about being tubular, as the definition often includes being pendulous, but I guess with a mild form that might not always the case.

      I generally use depth as the guideline for sizing, as I think that's the crucial element for me. I can wear wires that are a bit too wide without any issues, but not having the right depth (usually corresponding to 30E) is a deal-breaker for me, as I need this to get a pleasing shape.

      Thanks for the tip on the Fauve Grace - I'll see if I can track one down!

    This bra is so beautiful, I simply can't get over it. The roses, the background, the timelessness--I adore it so much. This is the bra that made me take the leap to order straight from Comexim and I'm so glad that I did, because I've realized that Comexim bras are wonderful for me, mainly because they have narrow wires, narrow gores, and--most importantly--the straps don't dig into my armpits!

    I could rave about how pretty this bra makes me feel, but instead I'll mention how comfy it makes me feel. I love how it lifts and supports my breasts and gives them a nice, uplifted shape that isn't a teardrop or a point.

    The band has three hooks while the 65H only had two, and I have to say, I was against the extra hooks at first because I didn't think I needed it that much, but actually it's super comfortable. I feel supported and hugged (not squeezed) and I'm just in love with this bra and want to show it off to everyone.

    Didn't fit

    I'll begin by saying that this bra is not a perfect fit. The wires are definitely too wide (about 3cm wider than I'd like), the gore is very tall for a reduced gore, there isn't much immediate projection, and even with a very reduced height, there's some strap gap.

    That being said, this is by far the comfiest bra I own. By far. The Ingrid material seems to be softer (and stretchier) than most of their other bras. I had issues with my last order of 65 bands from Comexim being waaaaay too tight, but this one is a perfect fit in the band so that's a plus. Every ... time I size up though, I'm more and more shocked by how large the cups are...

    Also just for a little experiment, I tried putting one of my cookies into the outside of the cup sideways (because the pockets are tall enough that I can put my cookies in sideways) to take up some of the extra space created by the too wide wires. It gives a pretty nice pushup effect.

      T, omg! I have one comexim, its an 80O? 80M - Comexim » Coco (381)

      Ok, M. it was a tight band, fits like an Ewa 75.

    • Is Comexim's T cup the 19th cup or the 20th? Bratabase is showing it as the 20th but I thought Polish doesn't have the letter Q?

      True, Polish don't do Q cups, but Comexim decided to make Q cups not to confuse their american costumers.

      Other Polish brands will skip Q cups though, so better to go by index size.

      Here's a picture by kermitdafrog21 as well and her Q cup Comexim http://www.bratabase.com/picture/dnoai/ This is very useful :)

      dbmamaz The cup height is super reduced on this (I think I did 3cm), so that probably shaves off 2ish cup volumes (usually I use a taller cup to make up for not enough depth). But yeah its a large bra... The guy I'm seeing actually commented last night that he feels like every time he sees a new bra of mine its bigger than the last lol

    60H

    Fits

    A long overdue update to the blog and review of the Comexim classic Ingrid that I can't believe I went so long without trying. Beautiful autumn-friendly floral pattern, typical narrow wires, more apex than immediate projection. A size smaller than I originally wore in Comexim is making me feel the extent of the shrinkage I've had. I'm wearing mostly 28Fs and tight-banded 30Es these days. Fits well and makes me feel classy!

      Yay. A new review! Welcome back. Also perfect timing. I really want to order this same bra, but am not sure if I also need a 60H now... I have been obsessing over Ingrid for a few days, but my existing 60HHs have me stumped. When you measured at the apex, which part of the cup was it?

    • I found the deepest part to be where the two seams meet.

    • Thanks for the review. From what I've read in a couple of your reviews, I think I fit bras pretty similarly to you (broad shoulders, short roots, narrow, soft), so I find your reviews particularly helpful. It looks great on you, btw.

    • Thanks, that's how I measure mine. I noticed that your depth measurement is deeper than the other 60H Ingrids on here, but troubling for me is that the measurements are really close to my 60HHs, so I'm totally stumped on sizing again :/ I might try writing to Anna with pics. I'm starting to wonder if I got one 60H mislabeled.

    • Beautiful! :)

    50H

    Didn't fit

    After years of buying from Ewa Michalak, I finally decided to take the plunge into the world of Comexim. I definitely second guessed myself in the wrong direction this time. This is supposedly a 50H with reduced cups, so at least now I know never to order a 50G. Goodness.

    Super comfy, and the band is a perfect fit. Wires are just a little wide on my narrow roots, but it's the best I've had so far. I don't even feel the stabby gore, which is amazing. The cups are much too small, though; it's like my boobs are having a quad party. Time to order a new one.
    This bra's measurements have been altered

    60HH

    Fits

    Since I got this bra last December, it has been the one I’m most likely to wear on any given day. It’s soft and comfortable and perfect. It has the narrow and projected cups Comexim is known for, and gives a round and uplifted but still natural shape. I was a bit unsure before ordering whether I would like the look since I kind of hate beige bras. But Ingrid has understated beauty, and a slightly vintage feel to it. The copper and olive green rose print looks gorgeous on the warm-toned creamy background. I like that it’s not trying to be sexy.

    I ordered Ingrid with a reduced ... center gore, but it seems like standard height to me. The gore doesn’t really tack and sits on my breast tissue, but reduced and overlapping gores do the same really. It’s a result of my very close-set breasts combined with Comexim’s soft wires. It’s not uncomfortable, so I don’t mind. The band was unfortunately quite loose on my bra, and I had to close it with the tightest hooks immediately. After some time I got the band shortened by a few centimeters, and now it feels very good (measurements taken before the alteration).

    Interestingly, the fit of the cups has changed somewhat after receiving the bra (even before the band alteration). In the beginning, the bra was gaping at the top annoyingly. After a few months, the gaping disappeared and the top edge was sitting very smoothly against my skin. I couldn’t figure out why my boobs would be growing at this point – maybe it was some migrated tissue coming back after starting to wear projected Polish bras? Nevertheless, it fits very well now and I am happy!

    I also got a matching thong in size S, since I wasn’t a fan of the brief style. The thong is really pretty and comfortable, I love it.

    So yeah I want to wear this bra every day. It feels like pillows for boobs. It’s beautiful. I’m happy to now have Comexim in my life.

      I have it and really like it. Also I wasn't sure about the print but it's looks much better when you have it in your hand or on your boobs actually.
      However I don't wear it often now as before coz I have way too many bras :D

    • Thank you Love4Pollinators ! I agree martka00, it does look better in real life! It's starting to have a lot of competition now, but still holding on. :D

      Thanks for the review. I have the same close-set problem where it's hard to get even an overlapped gore to tack in there, but some definitely work better than others. Still haven't found the right fit in Comexim but inspired to try again.

      This is a bra I've never pulled the trigger on and every time I see it I like it a little bit more. It really does have a vintage feel.

      too sad there isnt a longline version available.
      This bra really suits you well.

      1zora216 Thank you! :) Actually you can order any of their bras as a longline version, it's just a bit more expensive.
      lcl0706 It does! It's very lovely but not necessarily one that would at first get your attention.
      MommaK I hope you will find the right fit! :) I find that Ewa Michalak gores tack more easily (lower gore + firmer wires), but often I still find Comexim more comfortable.

    80N

    Didn't fit

    First, I want to note that I purchased this bra from Breakout Bras, whose @Comexim come in UK sizing. Yes, the tag actually says 36JJ. Bratabase converted it automatically to an 80N.

    The Ingrid fabric has been discussed plenty, so I won't go there. The bra is very well made, and the fabric is sturdy and soft.

    So uh...this bra is huge, I think? I have INCHES of space in the top of the cup. It was hard to photograph the empty space without just basically taking a picture of my boobs, but hopefully y'all can get the idea from the one picture I provided. I also had ... a good amount of empty space on the outside of the cup, but it's not visible because of how I'm holding my arms.

    I'm just confused. Is the bra huge, are the cups too tall, does it want someone more full on top? I'd really like to exchange it for one of Breakout Bras' other Comexim styles, which are:

    Rose 3HC
    Sonia Padded Balcony
    Basic Padded Plunge
    Belle de Nuit Padded Half Cup
    Queen of Hearts Padded Plunge
    or, Ingrid in another size.

    Advice is very appreciated!

    • The height of the gore and cups seems tall. Compared to my 90M, the gore is almost .5 inches taller and the cups are about the same, and they shouldn't be considering Comexim grading. Maybe this is a mistaken raised gore and cups that got mixed with a normal batch.

    • But the depth seems about right. About an inch smaller than mine, a sister-sized cup up from yours.

    • Do you fill out the bottom? Maybe try another plunge in 80M? I fit a cup smaller in my Comexims than I did unlined bras before I grew out of them.

    • Thats why everyone requests reduced cup height in larger sizes. Because the cup heights are stupid. at least thats what I was told.

    • I found mine perfect for my short roots though. Although I am full on top.

    • Yeah, I fill out the bottom nicely. And honestly, the bra is really comfortable!

      My measurements could always also be a bit off, especially the cup depth. I find that one tricky.

      Do half cups still have the same crazy cup height? If so, a half cup might be wearable in my size.

    • I have a half cup that's a sister-size (bigger band) to this Comexim. It's a bigger at the apex (by about half an inch) but the gore is a bit shorter and the cup height is about 9 inches, so much shorter than yours.

    • I found Ingrid to run the largest in the cup, and be the most open on top, of any comexim plunges I've tried. It's kind of an outlier to their usual fit.

    • wild_muses, that's odd because I've found it to be the smallest, both in band and cup, & most shallow of any Comexim bra I've tried.

    • see, this is why I dont want to buy them. Its totally custom in my size and they are totally inconsistent. I mean, ewa is frequently inconsistent in bands, but not everything else

    • Actually, dbmamaz if you buy from Breakout Bras you can get one with free returns and shipping and they stock your size. They have my old size, 90M (UK 40J), and sister sizes down. I agree that buying from them directly can be sort of daunting though. I'm still working up the guts to try to get another one to replace the ones I grew out of.

      I'm not even sure I want to buy ANY more polish bras except the SF. My Jasmine fits so much better. Jasmine's wires dont shift down and hurt me. Its the only one. Its the only one with enough projection.

    • I feel your frustration. I only have one Curvy Kate and it digs in at thearmputs so it's a constant battle.

    • I hear you both. Panache Envy is basically my only reliable bra for all of my fit issues. It's not perfect either, the wires are kinda stabby, but I pad them over with moleskin. Jasmine is a little pointy on me.

    • Envy dug in below my boobs - it didnt have enough projection or immediate, not sure. And it was the only bra where, when I outgrew my 32Js, instead of quadding, it stopped tacking. Not sure why. But it didnt work. tho someone (bad w names, i'd recognize you if I saw you, i think you wear 30JJ lol) said only the black was problematic, but . . eh. I'll stick w jasmine.
