This review is for a Comexim Ivonne 75O custom ordered size without modification. This is my second Comexim bra, and it is a big fail in sizeing choice, much worse fit than my first comexim which was a 75N Snow , which I reviewed here: http://www.bratabase.com/chest/di4vc/review/
I have very soft pendulous boobs with narrow roots. Since my previous review I gained a bit wait and of course all went to my boobs and went up a cupize. My underbust remained the same almost 33", and overbust now is ~47-48" depending of the of the month. Which means I just broke the K ... cup barrier and I am now ~34KK/32L UK size. So the fit will be based on this size.
This was quite annoying. I ordered my first Comexim by exchanging emails and got the bra in January , and I was eager to get another one. I emailed them in January 29 in Polish to order an Ivonne 75O with no modification. I got a reply saying no problem in English a few days later, and I was grateful for switching language. I replied and said just send the invoice to my email as they did previously. I know they work on a monthly cycle and only charge when they ready to ship , so I was patiently waiting. After more than 5 weeks, still no shipping notice email ,and no invoice , so I emailed them that what is going on. I got an answer that I should submit an online order on the website and put the requested custom size in the comment. What a wasted 6 weeks! I submit an order online on March 14 and selected the largest cupsize in my bandsize 75K and put a note in the comment that I like a custom size 75O and paid with paypal . After 3.5 weeks I got a shipping notice and it took ~3 weeks to receive it as I live in Canada . So I got the bra 3 months after I first contacted them. Lesson learnt, I need to submit the order online so I can pay it and ensure the order actually happening.
2. Fit - Band
The band is firm and much tighter than my 75N Snow, which fits me perfectly , but this needs an extender. However, their size chart on the website puts my 82.5 cm underbust at the larger end of 80 or between 80- and 85, so the band is actually true to their size chart.
3. Fit - Cup/Gore
This bra is waay to small for me, like probably more than 3 cupsizes small and hence gore not tacking and fit is terrible. While my 75N Snow also a bit small in the cup, the plunge design doesn't cut into my boobs on that one and still can wear it. White this is theoretically one cup bigger than my Snow , the balcony design without stretch cuts my boobs into half leading to a terrible quadboob. While my Snow arrived with a handwritten tag, this one arrived with no tag. Since I ordered online selecting 75K in the drop box with a note asking for 75O size, I actually have no way knowing that they honored my size request, or it is terrible small because they ignored my comment, and sent my what I selected online the 75K.
4. Straps/ Underwire
It has nice wide and comfy cushioned straps , great support, but still won't dig in. the underwire soft and narrow just like my other Comexim.
5. Material/ fabric/ value
The color is exactly like the website , a light-medium taupe kind of cool light brown, which really disappear under clothes on me. I have cool tone skin with a bit pinkish undertone, and most "nude" color bras super yellow on me, but not this one. As far as the material goes, , it is a strong sturdy bra. It is not a luxurious fabric, but nice and would be a great everyday workhorse if it had fit me. The price is great as it is 100PLZ + 20 plz overseas shipping, so cost ~$30 USD , definetly worth it. I am keeping it for now, because my weight fluctuates and usually lose a 10lb during summer and it may fit me by the fall.
I am sad it didn't fit after 3 months of waiting, but Comexim definitely the type of bra that suitable for my type of breast( soft, very projected, pendulous , narrow root, high set).
However, I am not sure if I want to gamble again with direct order, which is the cheapest , but has the most risk getting the size wrong. I think I will look into ordering the higher end models using one of the US based ordering option. I know the Anna Pardal line is closing down, but the wellfitting seems still working , so I may give it a try.
