This bra is gorgeous! The photos of just the bra (not the ones of me wearing the bra) are closer to the actual color. It's a really gorgeous cool, green shade. I ordered this directly from Comexim (via email), though this version of the Jade (without the lace) is available through Wellfitting now. The band is definitely snug on this one, but I've found that to be the case with all of the "silky" fabric Comexim bras I've owned (this is nowhere near as tight as the Angelina or Basic though!). I do wish it had 4 rows of hooks instead of 3, but I'll just need to ...wear it with an extender for a little bit. I'd actually requested 4 rows of 2 hooks, but did not get that alteration on any of the bras I ordered. The only alteration that was actually made to this bra was that I had the straps moved in 2cm. I have very narrow shoulders so I find that this alteration works really well on me. This is going to be a great basic bra since the seams are fairly smooth and the bra is super comfortable. It's definitely my favorite out of the new Comexim designs! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> Read more 103 more words
At the moment I have a lot of lacy, floral, romantic-looking bras (and I do love them), but it’s cool to have something like Magic for a change: more minimalistic and modern-looking. The color is a gorgeous, deep emerald green (I had to adjust the color a bit because my phone’s camera made it look too blue). The black trims and straps look great on it. Yay for more green bras!
I think that Comexim plunges are my favorite bras to wear at the moment, and Magic is no exception. It fits similarly to most other Comexim plunges, meaning lots of projection and narrow underwires. Most of the projection ...is in the center part of the cup. At first when I put this bra on, I thought that the shape seemed quite pointy, but already after the first wear the cups softened and became rounder. This bra has alterations: reduced center gore, overlapping wires at the center, and 4x2 hooks (I asked for 3x3 but it’s not a problem really). The band seems like a standard 28; it fits my small ribcage best on the second row of hooks.
The bra fits very well, feels comfortable and looks fantastic. I also got the matching thong in size S. It’s comfortable, true to size and completes the set perfectly. This will be a much loved set I’m sure! Read more 117 more words
I'm super happy with this bra. It's a lovely green satin with black lace detailing. The fit is really good. The cups are a bit taller than I need but they come in enough on the tops that I don't get gaping. The straps are comfortable too. The band feels more like a 65 so I need to fasten it on the tightest hooks.
There appears to be two versions of this bra-one without black lace trim across the top, and one with it. This one came from Breakout Bras, and does have the black lace trim.
The bra itself is a standard Comixim padded plunge without any customizations. Mine came with the outer fabric being at a looser tension than the padding, just like the Andromeda bra. This means that the fabric wrinkles on the cups even with them being a bit too small.
As for fit, The gore is 2.5 fingers off the sternum, and the cups are a full fit with center spillage and minor quadding but completely doable. The band ...feels good and comfy on the middle hook set which is nice. While my rib measurement is the same, I have gained about 10 pounds-mostly in my belly, so a looser hook set is more comfortable with the slouch wire base cut ins.
I find it odd that this one measures larger in the cup than the Queen of Hearts 30KK, but fits smaller for sure. I’m not sure if it’s just the wider set straps on QoH or if the cup/gore height needs to be between the two for a better fit.
I can tell that there is not enough center room in the cup near the gore and not enough immediate projection, so the compression below feels odd.
And for the technical aspects: All measurements are taken prior to trying the bra on to insure no figure is obscured by the body. I also take all flat measurements before taking the stretched cup then band measurements for the same reason.
The band measures 22” and stretches to a max of 29”. It has 3 hooks and 4 rows of eye loops. A bit big for a true 28 band, but not really outside the normal range.
Cup Depth as measured by: 1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance. This measurement is: 12.4” 2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance. This measurement is: 15.25”
I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.

(for an initial review of my first Comexim bra -a standard 80M plunge please see my Megan review) My first time getting a bra with adjustments from Comexim. After a few emails back and forth, I bought two different plunge bras and asked that they both be made in a longline 80M, with the following adjustments: “1. Bowl 1 cm deeper
2. Move the straps 2 cm in
3. Can you also make a narrower and shorter gore? The cups were slightly too far apart
4. Can you use narrower wires? The outside wire of the cup was about 3 cms from my breast tissue, but I filled the volume ...of the cup”
#1 was previously discussed to be adding projection/depth to the cup near the wire- I think it was misunderstood as to be adding an inch of depth/height in the wire.
Initial try on thoughts: they did not seem to change the gore at all. The wires are not closer or crossing and also doesnt appear lower. If I have the fabric sit where it covers me well, the wires dont sit in my IMF. I can fit 3-4 fingers between the bottom wire and my root tissue (although I need that give in the fabric cup- if that were simply made into the band, the cup would not be big enough. I can also fit 3-4 fingers between the wire and my outside root tissue.
If I attempt to hike up the wire to my IMF, the outside wire attempts to stab me in the armpit. I cant get the bra fully in my IMF because I cant unattach my arm. Trying to hold it higher, I also begin to get a lot of gapping in the top/outer cup. The longline also tends to roll, just the very bottom elastic, despite my waist being the same measurement as my underbust. I was hoping it would spread out the tension I get where the bottom part of gores of other bras sort of turn to stab me in the chest. It does seem to be spreading out that pressure despite rolling. There’s something scratchy about the bottom hook of 5, like an unfinished glued edge? The green material sort of feels like swimsuits? Or costumey? And is more green than the teal I thought it was in the pictures. Sort of a Jade color. Maybe close to this? https://www.pantone.com/color-finder/7480-C, where the picture looked more like this https://www.pantone.com/color-finder/3262-C
As for how the alterations went: It is a longline, although the elastic rolls at the very bottom. The bowl does seem different, but largely because of where the wires now sit, it actually lost depth by measurements. The straps may have been moved but not enough, although 2 cm’s is the max they would do. The gore seems unchanged. The wires seem changed, but worse? (They’re an inch longer, so I wonder if that was the cup depth they added? Thinking I meant cup height in the wire, not projection by the wire? They are also .25 narrower at the top of the cup, but still almost 2 inches too wide)
I wonder if getting a bra sister sized to like an 70 O but then altered or used with extenders to get the band back to an 80 would work better than asking for more specific cup alterations to an 80M, or if this just wont work for me. I still seem to have too skinny of a frame compared to the width of the cups/wires and straps. Due to the longline, this gore is not turning sideways or stabbing me, although the elastic at the bottom of the longline constantly flips up. The wires are just way off.
Quality: For as much effort as ordering custom international stuff is, I'm a little disappointed with this materials feel-like half scuba? and that one of the loops is already pulled crooked/loose after one try-on. There's also an issue with the end of the row of hooks, the fabric seam is either melted or glues together and a little scratchy. Everything else seems really durable.
Comfort: short-term less comfy than my unaltered one, since the wire's just way too long and jabs both my under arm and into my torso instead of laying in my IMF. No issue with the gore stabbing me for once. Long term im not sure if those issues will be better or worse than the gore turning and the bottom sort of stabbing issues I've had with previous bras.
Appearance: not quite the color scheme I thought I was ordering. The black and green isnt quite as sharp as the teal and black I thought I was getting. It'd be nicer looking if it fit right, but overall it looks good. I dont particularly care for the black bows Read more 691 more words
MAGIC BIUSTONOSZ colorway
This bra's measurements have been altered
Asked Comexim for the following alterations: 1. Bowl 1 cm deeper (at the wire) 2. Move the straps 2 cm in 3. Can you also make a narrower and shorter gore? The cups were slightly too far apart 4. Can you use narrower wires? The outside wire of the cup was about 3 cms from my breast tissue, but I filled the volume of the cup 5. Longline
I've been curious about Comexim bras for a while, but up until recently, they haven't been the easiest to get your hands on, especially without free shipping and free returns like most of my Amazon bra purchases. Luckily, Breakout Bras has started selling a lot more on Amazon recently, which reminded me to look into their Comexim assortment, and I decided to take the plunge and grab this bra directly from their website.
Although I originally planned to get the Basic Plunge first, I saw the Magic on their website and was instantly entranced. It reminded me of a review I saw a while ago on Big ...Cup Little Cup for an emerald green Wellfitting longline bra with black trim, and I just loved the distinctive look of this combination. Luckily for me, they had a 28F listed. After messaging with Melissa from Breakout Bras, who normally recommends ordering up 2 sizes from your UK cup size (28FF), I decided to just order the 28F and hope for the best.
The bras are labeled for them by Comexim with UK sizes only, but I confirmed with their customer service and with my measurements that the original Comexim size is 60G. Now, this is very confusing because according to the Comexim website this size should be impossibly small (their chart lists 60G as 58-62 cm underbust, 81-83 cm bust), but everyone else on BTB said that ordering your normal UK size band should totally be fine, so I went with that advice. Otherwise, Comexim's size chart would put me square in the middle of a 65 and 70 band, and gives me the size recommendations of 65G and 70D. I could probably pull off the 65G but the 70D would just be crazy.
Thus for sizing, I'd definitely say the band runs TTS (their website actually says it should be impossible for me to fasten a 60 band if my underbust is 67-68 cm, but I assure you this is untrue . . . I don't even need an extender, but the fabric of this particular bra is extremely stretchy so this may not be true for all styles). I felt that the 60G cups fit well but were a little on the smaller side, and I could probably do the 60H/28FF since my larger side gets some overflow, and I feel the wires are a little narrow. Since EU sizing is based on centimeters and not inches when it comes to cup measurements, the difference in cups is a little bit smaller and more forgiving than in UK/US sizing.
Regarding the appearance, I think this bra is just stunning. The body fabric is actually a heavy stretch nylon/poly/spandex blend that is very similar to American Apparel Disco Pants or 80s workout gear, however due to the rich color, it doesn't look cheap. Inner cups are lined with cotton, and the wings are lined with black stretch tricot for further stability. The band ends in a nice deep leotard back. This bra is the style with black eyelet lace trim at the upper cups and scalloped black elastic straps. It looks great under clothing and gives both breasts an amazing shape, with no sign of the 1 cup size asymmetry that some other bras enhance.
My only feedback on this bra that makes it less than ideal is that because the straps are much thicker than I am used to, they put a lot of pressure on my shoulders, which are constantly stiff and sore due to poor posture. It is not related to the tightness of the straps, simply the amount of constant pressure on the sore muscles and nerves in the area, and I get the same kind of pain whenever I wear racerbacks. If not for this, a truly lovely bra. So happy to have had a great experience with my first Comexim purchase, and I'll be adding others soon!
Update: Since I have received my 60H bras now directly from Comexim, I can confirm that the main problem with 60G is that the wires are too narrow and small for me, and the cups are slightly too shallow in this size, but the 60G cup height and strap positioning is better for me. Looks like I'll be going the custom route from now on to order custom lowered 60H! Read more 629 more words
The bra is comfortable, but probably like 2-3 cup volumes too small. It also seemed like it might be too shallow for my projected boobs, which I was a bit confused by--this is Comexim, after all--but honestly it's probably that the cup is just too small all around.
