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.
