Got this one secondhand as well, and it's a strange little bird. I've now hit all 3 of my potential sizes in Comexim, and still don't have a clear answer haha.
The cups are supposed to be reduced as well as the gore lowered. I'm not sure if having a higher gore would help with the shape issues here. It's not a terrible fit, but it's kind of a teardrop shape? I feel like there's not a lot of lift or support going on here. There is some gapping on both sides at the top of the cups, so if these are reduced cups, I wouldn't want to meet the standard ones! There is also gapping close to the gore on my smaller side and I feel like my inner fullness could be better contained than it is.
Otherwise, it's ok. Wires are good, band is good, immediate projection is good, straps are a bit wide but not uncomfortably so.
Unfortunately, this bra was not only too big in the cups for me, but because it was the standard cup cut instead of reduced, the cups were much too tall. The band felt quite nice, though. In terms of appearance, it's pretty appealing. Has a bit of a "middle market" feel to it. It's not my favorite from Comexim, but I'd probably snatch another one up second hand if I saw it in a 65J with reduced cups.
Bought this April 2014. I was around a 32J at the time and it fit quite well, as I needed narrow gore, lots of projection, narrow wires and relatively open cups. The cups were a little tall, I think. At the time, I think I could have gone a 70M instead for less coverage. I looove the colour/print and wish it fit me now. I tried this on a few times but never ended up wearing it out as I preferred unpadded bras (as they made my boobs look smaller).
This doesn't fit anymore though and is way too big in the cups and band.
This bra was ordered with a lowered centre gore and reduced cup height.
I requested these changes in order to reduce the gaping that I had near the gore on my previous Comexim bra. Unfortunately, I still have a lot of gaping with this bra. I think it might be a size too large, but the main problem is too much space near the gore, just as I have with the Freya Deco. I have close-set breasts but unless they are pushed to the centre by side support, there isn't a lot of centre fullness.
The band is quite comfortable for me and I like the geometric pattern (which seems more aqua than mint to me), especially as so many bras are hyper-feminine. But unfortunately the gaping is just too significant for me to accept. My breasts look somewhat saggy in it without a shirt, although in a shirt they just look kind of square on top. Comexim just isn't a good brand for me, I fear.
Typically wear 28HH, close-set, firm, rounded with even shape. I believe a 60M is about a 28J in UK sizing.
Good in the band and lovely print. The wires are also perfect in their width, even better than Ewa Michalak for me. Comfortably short gore for my close set breasts.
However, the cups do not suit my shape. Initially, the look was great until I realised I had the classic 'orange in a glass' issue. My breast shape is even, so quite full on the bottom and the Comexim padded bras are too shallow at the bottom for me. The cups also come up quite tall which I am not ...used to as I am of average build, and the straps subsequently dig in to my armpit. It is also a real shame that I cannot find a brand that does not make wide straps in these sizes - it makes me wonder if they try them on women of this size.
The cups have collapsed now. I get tissue spilling at the front but also at the center where it is quite open and I naturally possess a lot of tissue around the gore area. I get terrible shape and a lot of weight falls onto my shoulders, causing a lot of back pain. Read more 105 more words
I decided I needed a green bra in my life and the Mint Sorbet looked so tempting on the website that I ordered it together with the Comexim Basic (170) and Comexim Jennifer. The actual colour was actually a duller green than what I expected. With the name "Mint", I was kinda expecting a fresher, more pastel colour (like peppermint ice cream!) But the colour grew on me somewhat and now I live purely in Comexims!
The size is perfect on me, and I'm so glad I lucked out on the first try! As per Bratabase advice, I went with my usual band size and ...used the Comexim size chart only for the bust measurement, which brought me to 60H. For reference's sake, I usually wear a 28F in most UK brands.
The band is tighter than Freya's (I find Freya's bands a little loose for me). I loooove how the band sits nice and low on my back all day long but did not feel unnecessarily tight. What is this sorcery? With my Cury Kates, I feel the tightness of my bands all day along, and even then, sometimes they threaten to ride up!
The straps are closer together than the other UK brands I've tried (that tend to dig into my underarms and leave dark marks that don't go away). They are also fully adjustable, soft, and stretchy. All in all, the comfort of the straps is amazing.
I must admit the feel of this bra isn't as luxurious as the UK bras I own. But with a so much better fit, I would definitely buy more of Comexim's bras! I just hope they would come up with more designs, and more styles like the strapless, wireless, etc. The cost of this bra is on par, if not a bit cheaper than UK brands, as the shipping is so much more cost effective, with tracking to boot!
