Starting with some (minor) issues: the straps are really thin, but less stretchy than one could expect. The uplift isn't as great as it could be, but still better than most of soft bras I've recently tried on. And something was scratching me in my back, couldn't figure out what it was. And that's everything I don't like about this bra so far. Laura is a really good everyday bra. It's really comfy, I can wear it all day and don't feel like wearing a bra at all. The fabric is soft, smooth and rather unstretchy. As I've mentioned, the uplift is not amazing, but it support breasts enough and doesn't change their natural shape. Most of the seams are made well enough not to be too visible under clothes. The bra also happens to have colour almost perfectly matching my skin, which makes it even more invisible. The underwires are rather soft and don't poke at all, so if you have sensitive skin it's a good choice.
Beautiful soft cup balconette by Comexim. The satin fabric feels great. It's a plain design suitable to wear under thin fabrics but has a bit of detail which gives it sophistication -- small edge of lace along the cups, ribbons on center gore and at the end of each strap and lace overlay on the straps.
I was surprised that the straps felt set far apart but that may be related to the fact that this 70K is too large for me.
Comexim bras are just not for me, I guess! I've been trying several in the last few weeks. My soft tissue, pendulous breasts don't work in their extremely projected, open-cup style. I need full-cup coverage.
This bra just doesn't fit me right. It was my first venture into Comexim territory and was a big miss. The gore floats, I get quadboob, and I'm not getting any lift. Definitely the wrong style and size for me.
Pros: it's a fantastic basic. The beige color and smooth fabric disappears under clothes. It's a very well-made bra. The reduced cup height (as I was told by the woman who sold it to me) did keep this bra from riding up onto my armpits, making it really comfortable.
This is a beautiful bra but sadly I did not get the size right. The cups on this 70K are WAY too large for me. Band fits perfectly. When I ordered the bra I asked that the straps be moved 1 cm. Given how much too large the cups are on me, I wonder if the straps were moved out instead of in... Since it is a 'special' order, I couldn't return it.
This was a reduced cup bra. I am short rooted, pendulous, projected and center full. I had too much upper fullness and center fullness for this bra. The wires were too soft for my tissue to give me much lift as well, so this would be good for a not as soft breasts.
The band is tight. Very tight, I couldn't even try it on without a full extender, so this would probably fit someone looking for a tight 34. as the stretched measurement was 33. This is a nice ultilitarian beige bra, that is well built. I couldn't see the seams under a shirt, so that's a positive.
The straps are fully extendable, and a nice average length. Not too short, not too long with metal keepers. The strap material is soft and not itchy at all. Matter of fact, the rest of the bra is this way as well. It's a great bra, just not for me.
Holy mother of what?! This band is unbelievably tiny! I ordered it under the assumption that it would fit like a UK 30H-ish (I'm still unsure of my exact Comexim size), but the band doesn't even stretch past 26" without beginning to distort! I included a picture of the unstretched bra with a measuring tape to show how tiny it is.
Unfortunately, I'm unable to comment on the rest of the fit, as I couldn't even fasten it. However, it appears approximately like the pictures on the Comexim site, though maybe the fabric looks a hair lower quality. It has a slightly cheap polyester sheen to it. It seems well constructed, though, and looks absolutely adorable. I'm sad it doesn't fit.
The wire width is perfect, the band is perfect and the strap placement was great. The color is what I would consider a soft creamy ivory, although on their website, it's labeled as "szampan" which translates to champagne. I have an olive skintone and it complements my skin very well.
The straps can be considered as being only partially adjustable though, since the straps from the top of the cups have some lace that's sewn onto the straps; the length goes about 5 3/8" or 13.7cm. However if you're careful enough you can feed the lace through the slider, it's pretty flat.
The bra is unlined. Stitching and detailing are ...flawless, very well constructed.
Unfortunately, it does not fit me, the cups were much too roomy at the top. I have these inserts that according to water displacement adds about 89cc of tissue, which is slightly over half of a cup size (ie going from 30F to 30FF) and when I put them on, the cups still did not quite fill out all the way. I think if I were to get this bra again, I would have to go down a cup size. When I compare the measurements against the Comexim Green Velvet in 65H that I tried, the cup depth difference is only 0.1cm difference so I would say that this bra runs about a cup size too big.

I finally got my Comexim bras in today, a Laura and a Carmen! They're one cup size too big but so beautiful. The Laura fits almost exactly like the Freya balconette I tried last week in 28H that was a cup size too big. Wires are in almost the exact same spot. These give a more rounded shape then Freya does though, and have wider straps. In fact, when I compare the Laura to my 30GG Freya Faye, the cups match up pretty close to exactly (band is obviously much bigger on the Faye). There is a bit of elastic between the front strap and the underwire under my armpit that I'm not sure works well for me, but it is hard to tell due to the fact that the cups are a size too big.
