This model fits a bit larger than my Basic in the same size (75H), though I know that Basic runs tight. I didn't know, however, that Nadin runs a bit large. I probably should have sized down, but out of curiosity ordered the same size since the only Comexim bra I had at that point was the Basic.
Backstory: When I first tried Comexim I was still breastfeeding my last child. I thought that I had normalized, however, and did not think that I would continue to shrink in size. Lesson learned: I did. When I first ordered the Basic I was about a 32G UK sizing. My best ...fit had been Panache Jasmine. My bra arrived six weeks thereafter and actually fit quite well. I couldn't quite fill the tops (which I will get to later) but it did not detract from its appearance and was my best fit at that point. After a few months, I reduced in size down to about a 30FF/32F. Basic was still passable, but I needed new bra's! Enter Nadin.
Fit: knowing that Basic rantai tight I wasn't sure what size to order next. I went ahead and ordered 32h again in this model as well as the Arizona. I had the straps moved inward two centimeters thinking that perhaps it would help with the top of the cup which I couldn't fill properly. After a month the two bras arrived and I realized my mistake. Both were larger. I definitely should have gone down in band or cup. Arizona was way too big, and while Nadine was slightly too big and stretchy in the band it was passible. I could get the band to the last set of hooks, but oddly enough it doesn't ride up, so I have been wearing it until my next comexim order arrives. It also gapes at the top (not too visible under clothing), so I will be trying a three-part half cup next. I still love the plunges but I think I just have too short of roots to truly fill them out all the way. I could probably do with a 75G in Basic, but a 70G in Nadin (if that helps others guessing about fit). Read more 262 more words
This was by far my most comfortable bra. Not only was it comfy, it was gorgeous too. My husband caught a glimpse of it while I was changing and even he had said it was a good looking bra - he normally tunes out when I talk about or show him my bras. I had happened upon it and bought it knowing it would be too small. That was certainly true, but when I started to lose weight, it eventually became my only passable fit. This particular one had reduced cups, which is absolutely necessary for me to get a decent fit in Comexim's padded plunges. Their wires ...are rather soft so when it fit best, I only got a soft tack out of it. The soft wires does mean it's much more comfortable under the arms, though. *Love*
The band was workable, though during the few times I was able to wear it as I lost weight, it eventually became a bit too loose for me. I'm so sad this bra isn't being made anymore, as far as I know. I would buy it again in a heart beat, but this time in a reduced 65J. Read more 88 more words
The Nadin is my favorite bra looks wise, but it did not fit me. I estimated my EU bra size to be between a 65K and L, but ordered 2 cup sizes smaller based on many reviews and that my breasts have soft tissue. However, the Nadin does not run big at all, at least not in my case! Perhaps the other reviewers did not calculate their size right? Or maybe Comexim has fixed the sizing, who knows!? My measurements are 72cm underbust and 101 overbust and the 65HH was WAY too small. Beautiful and well-made, Anna was extremely helpful in figuring out what size to exchange (she asked for measurements and pics of the bra while wearing) and we agreed on a 65L. I am very excited to see how this bra works in the correct size!
Note: though this doesn't alter the measurements of the bra in any way tracked by bratabase, this bra does have reduced cups, or, in other words, it was ordered with lower cup height near the straps. Otherwise the cups on comexim bras are too tall for me-- and how much do I love that you can customize the bra when you order?!
This is absolutely gorgeous-- if you like the way this bra looks online, I can assure you that it is even more beautiful in real life-- well constructed, with a unique and absolutely stunning color scheme. The color is accurate in Comexim's pictures on my ...monitor-- the ribbon and lace at the top of the cups are a cool gray (I'd say with a hint of a blue or lavender). The cup material is red with light and dark blue roses (that don't match, but suit the gray accents) and faded yellowish green leaves. The straps are wide and comfortable, and perfectly match the gray ribbon and lace trim on the top of the cups. The bow on the central gore, again the same shade of gray, is over-sized and made of a slender ribbon. The print is continued on the outside band, and the insides of the cups and band are lined with red fabric.
The cups, as with all Comexim bras are narrow, with a narrow center gore-- this works very well for me, as my breasts are deep and I have a pretty small frame. The shape of the bra works with center-full breasts-- but definitely expect a lot of cleavage if you have deep breasts with a narrow gore-- this bra looks amazing on (IMO) and is a definite mood boost, but it brings all that you have front and center. Despite the potential for cleavage, it can be worn with a v-neck without cleavage with strategic positioning if the v-neck isn't too deep-- I still can have a gap in between my breasts (compared to the Deco, where the cup shape doesn't hold my (soft) breasts inside the cup, so my breasts spill toward the center and leave no room in between), which makes it easier to wear this bra in a work appropriate fashion.
After all this gushing, I'll admit that this bra is a bit too small in the cups, but it still looks good on, it's just a looooot of cleavage. 65J would fit well on a 28H or a 30GG in my opinion. The band is tight, as with most Comexims-- I can wear it without an extender, but it feels uncomfortably tight after a few hours so I will wear it with one for now. I need to update my measurements in bratabase, but I'm not going to do so now. As of this review, I'm about a 30H-- I think my breasts might shrink back to my previous size, though (I hope!), and then this bra will be a perfect size. My current best fitting bras are: Comexim Luna 30K with reduced cups; Cleo Lily in 32G; Panache Sport in 30GG; Freya Hello Dolly in 30H.
Comexim is absolutely my new favorite lingerie brand. Read more 419 more words
I really, really wanted this bra to work out for me. Unfortunately it was just way too big. The band was stretchier than I'm used to, but what ended up being the deal breaker for me was that the cups were easily 2 sizes too big for me -- despite my wearing 36FF/G (UK) in unlined Cleos. I actually tested this, and found I was able to fit a pair of ankle-length socks in each cup and it still didn't quadboob.
Ah well. Things I loved, though:
-The construction. It seemed very sturdy, yet the material used for the band was super soft. Very comfy! I also loved ...that the straps weren't too thin, and that it had 3 hooks instead of the normal 2.
-The design. I'm one of those people who crave simple basic designs -- plain black, grey, dark blue maybe. Despite that, I admire what they did with this bra: a very pretty, intricate floral design on a red backdrop, BUT trimmed with grey edging and detail. It sounds like an odd color combination but it works, and I loved that this meant my straps -- all grey -- wouldn't stand out if they ended up showing a bit under my typically black/grey/blue tops. I wish more manufacturers did this! Have your colorful designs, but make the visible areas of the bra not be so insanely loud as to clash with every top you wear if they happen to peek through.
As for fit, the only other thing I can really say (besides that it was too big for me) is that the cups seemed rather tall, and a huge chunk of my empty cup space was due to that. I'm not even full-on-bottom; my best-fitting bras so far have been bras meant for very even fullness (Meg, Lily). It also technically did not have enough immediate projection at the bottom of the cup for me; there was some slight bending-in of the cups going on. But I have yet to find a bra that doesn't have this problem for me.
Finally, yes, the cup width (underwires) runs narrow. I have an extremely narrow root so this would have been fine for me, but keep it in mind if you're more average or wide rooted. Read more 270 more words
The materials for this bra seemed pretty stretchy. The band, the straps.... The underwires are really stable though. This bra is good for someone who has a narrow root. I'd say this bra was almost too narrow for me. If I were to order again, I'd definitely go down in the band size.
