    Sorry for the long delay in measuring/reviewing this bra, but since there's no other data here for it yet, I've made myself stop being lazy. I was really torn about whether or not to keep this bra, tbh. It's very comfortable, but it's not a perfect fit. For starters, the band is HUGE for a 70 - I can stretch it to at least 34 inches and I'm pretty sure it could go a bit further without harming the bra. I expected the black fabric to be tighter, but this mesh must be super stretchy in general. I can wear it on the tightest hooks, but it still ... rides up a tad and I'm going to alter it as soon as I can find the time.

    After getting several 70F Comexims that ran super small in the cups, I finally caved and got a G this time, even though past Comexim models have been too big on me in that size. Glad I did, because these cups seem to fit okay. There's some wrinkling, but I think it's down to the construction, not the sizing.

    Speaking of construction, for an unlined, mesh bra this thing is shallow. I'm slowly trying to fix that by applying gentle pressure at the mesh just above the wires to stretch it out, but right out of the box it gave me a weird shape, kind of an upward slant rather than a curve out from the wires. I feel like the horizontal seam just isn't placed in the ideal spot somehow, or isn't at the right angle. The wings are also a bit high for my liking, but b/c the cups are so narrow it works fine for me.

    Things I do love - the gore (low and narrow, gives me lots of space for inner fullness, so yay!), the comfy soft wires, how breathable the mesh has been for summer wearing, and how short-root friendly the bra is. The ribbon along the top edge is perfect for me, though it does tend to show under thinner shirts. I wouldn't think this bra would work for anyone too full-on-top.

    All in all, I've decided to keep this one and just try to alter the band to fit better. I'm really amazed at how big it runs, so I don't think I'll be ordering the Moulin Rouge black version. I may take a break from Comexim in general for while, as I feel like they've been too inconsistent lately with cup/band sizing and not enough depth at the wire. This one wasn't really my style, but I did want to try their unlined bras and I have to admit mesh bras are super comfortable when it's hot out.

    • Thank you for sharing your experience with this stunning bra. Looks gorgeous on you! The "shallow at the wire" issue has been a big issue for my sister and me, too. In fact, 0 of 5 in her recent order fit. And, I could visual see the difference compared to her order of the same size one year ago. Sigh.

    • Thanks! Same, I just keep having to up cup sizes in this brand and it makes ordering such a huge gamble. Pity, b/c now that there's a purple version of this bra in the works I'm kind of tempted.

    • Love4Pollinators it's so frustrating! I see older reviews for their 3HCs that look SO DEEP, and none of the ones I've ordered have been the same. Luckily they still work okay for me (they get pushed down a little bit but not terribly), because I don't know what else to even try anymore. Most Polish brands are insanely difficult to get ahold of in the US.

    So I've worn this a few times, and at first I thought, oh yes! Another unpadded Comexim that works for me! But the more I wear it, the less I like it. It doesn't feel as supportive. I don't know if it's the mesh fabric or what, but it just doesn't feel like it lifts my breasts at all. The band is nice and firm, the gore tacks, the straps don't dig into my armpits; everything that should work, does, but I just can't wear this bra for more than one day. Usually, I wear a bra for two or three days before washing it and then letting ... it "settle" or whatever for a few days after before wearing it again. But with this one, after a few hours it just starts to feel... saggy? I don't really know how to describe it. It's an odd feeling like I am not wearing a bra, but not in a comfortable way. I am hyper aware that I AM wearing a bra, it just isn't being supportive anymore, if that makes any sense.
    Other than my weird, picky issues, the bra is really lovely. The color is a deep red (my favorite!) and the black edging is a nice, dramatic touch.

    • I have one unpadded Comexim (the only comexim I own) - and its not as supportive as my Ewa's, or defintiely not as supportive as my panache

    • 1

      I agree with Comexim unlined bras being unsupportive. I'm not sure what the exact difference is with their design/fabrics, but I always end up with my boobs hanging way below the wire (if that makes sense) in Comexim's unlined bras.

    • I know what you mean kermitdafrog21 ! The Moulin Rouge is like that for me, and the Eve, to a lesser extent. The only one I really like is the Emily; I have two of them, and they are super comfortable and feel more supportive. I wear them quite a lot, and they are both over a year old, so I'm starting to prepare for the loss of my favorite bras to old age. :(
      dbmamaz what Panache unlined bras do you have? Any recommendations? I've been sticking with Polish brands, since I like the narrow wires, but I wouldn't be opposed to trying something less expensive, hahah!

    • Uh, Panache full price costs more than Ewas on sale, for sure. The only ones I have now are Jasmine, which is so projected as to be too 'pointy' for some people, esp if you are FOB; and the Tango, which runs bigger in the cup and seems to be a great shape for my Omega boobs. I'm wearing 32JJ in both of those, but I'm a K in ewas now. I outgrew my Comexim.

    • but i mean, you could click on my name and look at my bras, right?

    • Ah geez, yeah, I totally wasn’t thinking.

    For the details on this bra, & the journey it took just to get this bra, please see my consolidated complaint / review:
    https://www.bratabase.com/adventures/entry/16546/

    I have added new pictures & do believe if I ever get around to lowering the armpit curve & shortening the band, that this one will fit without the wrinkling.

    *8/11/18 update: I shortened the band to 21" and lowered the cup curve under the arms. While the wires are still too wide and the wing too tall, I can wear it. I still get a bit of quadding but it's not too bad. I will add new photos (if I remember) when I wear it.
