TL; DR — This is a great bra once you get the sizing figured out! Go down one band and up about 3 cups, and you’ll get a flattering, rounded shape. The gray and pink are beautiful as well. ———————-
Onyks is a really pretty bra! The band and strap color is a medium-dark gray, and the cups are gray combined with pink in the mesh and embroidery, as well as white embroidery. The mesh and embroidery are not very thick or stiff, and I haven’t noticed issues with visibility underneath clothing.
The fabric is lightweight, but the seaming provides good support and uplift. The band is very stretchy. The ...overall shape of the wire is very similar to Ewa Michalak BM bras, but those are firm and run small in the band, whereas this one runs big. If you have a narrow, projected shape and find the BM wires or band to be too firm, then the Onyks might be a good bra to try. I like both styles, but the Onyks has a more lightweight feel to its fabrics, elastics, and wires than the BM. Onyks does not have stretch lace on top of the cup so keep that in mind when deciding what size to buy.
As with most people trying Comexim, I’ve tried a few styles and sizes. When buying from Breakout Bras in the US, they convert to UK sizing and then suggest that you buy 1-2 cups larger than your normal size. With my 34GG - Comexim » Whimsy Floral (CMWHIMSY), that worked well, but I’ve noticed that at certain times of the month, I get quadding on the larger side. So I wanted to try one cup larger (UK 34H / Comexim 75K) this time. Additionally, BoB’s website advises that the band on the Onyks bra is very stretchy, and they recommend sizing down in the band. So I ended up ordering this bra in 32HH (which Bratabase converted to 70L). If I were to order this bra directly from Comexim, I would probably stick with 70L and ask to have the straps moved in just a hair, maybe 1.5 cm.
Definitely a good bra to try if you are the right shape and want to try a 3HC without the padding. Read more 275 more words
This bra is so beautiful in person! It’s a lovely smoky grey with delicate baby pink and white embroidery. The fabric is soft and not itchy. The cups are a three part, vertical seem cup with two layers of fabric. The inside of the cup is a monotone mesh with the outer fabric an embroidered mesh. The center gore, as well as the rocker of the bra consists of the same embroidered fabric with a small pink bow on the gore. The straps are a dark gray that coordinates with the gray mesh back band. The band on this bra is extremely stretchy! I definitely suggest sizing down. ...Even on the tightest set of hooks the bra felt loose, so the life of the bra wouldn’t last long. The back band had a 3x4 closure. Also be warned that the hardware that connects the straps to the back of the band squeak! The fit in the cup ran small for me, so I will be exchanging for a smaller band, bigger cup to see if I can get a better fit. This bra is just too beautiful to give up on.
Matching panties in size Medium: The front of the panties has a double layer of dark gray mesh, with a single layer of embroidered fabric next to it. The front portion of the hip area is a single layer of dark gray mesh. The back of the panties is also a single layer of the dark gray mesh. The crotch ha a black cotton fabric gusset. All elastic is dark gray. Read more 154 more words
I originally reviewed this in size 65J(30GG) http://bra.pe/X35Q/ but due to fit issues I exchanged for this 60L(28HH). I’m so glad I decided on going one band down and up a cup. It fits spot on and exactly what I was looking for in terms of fit and look. This bra is very comfortable, but it still has the squeak where the back hardware attaches to the straps. I’m hoping with some wear, that squeak will go away. For all the fabric details please see my original review, where I go into detail. I deducted a point for quality due to the squeak. For reference: I wear a 65J in padded plunge I wear a 65K in 3HC padded basic I wear a 60L in this 3HC non-padded Onyks
I’ve been wanting to try this bra and finally went for it but ordered the wrong cup size. I absolutely love this bra. It’s very comfortable and light. I like the shape it gives and I just love how it feels. I ordered a 28H (60K) from breakout bras and I’m not sure why I didn’t order 28HH (60L). I am not sure if I should order one cup size larger or two? 🤔
I tried this bra in 28H (60K) and really loved it but needed to go up a size so I tried this one, 28HH (60L). I should have gone up to a 28J (60M). I still have quadboob. I’m disappointed because I love this bra. It’s really comfortable! I was going to try the 28J but breakout bras didn’t have it in stock and Stephanie told me that they wouldn’t be stocking more of this bra. I’m kind of worried to size up more anyway because then I’m afraid I’ll run into issues with the wires being too tall/wide. I am considering ordering directly from Comexim and asking for added depth. Is it worth it? If I ask for added depth, would this size (60L) be enough?
This is a lovely bra that I ordered from Breakout Bras - my first order with them - they emailed me a 20% off coupon to entice me : ) It worked, lol.
However, I don't think this bra & me are meant to be as I'm having a hard time figuring out my sizing, and I plan on returning it for another bra : (
The problem with this bra is: I'm kind of in between band sizes 30 and 32. The band feels too loose in this particular bra (30GG/65J), maybe I'm just comparing it to the other Comexim bra I ordered (Basic Padded Plunge) where ...the band feels stronger. But if I were to "size down" any more in the band, that would put me at a 28 band, and I just think that would be too small (for example, today my "snug" band measurement is 29.5").
Also, the cups are a size too small - maybe they look okay in the picture, but to me = too small.
LadyNoName said with this bra to size one band down and three cups up; since my "normal" UK size is 30FF/G that would put me at 60K/L for the Onyks; that sounds to me like that probably is the right formula, however, another bratabase user review for this bra callie510 actually visited the Breakout Bras store and tried on the bras there, and said in her review that the 28 bands were all over the place, sooooo....after having to send this bra back, I'm just not sure that I would get something that is close to fitting. So, I plan to exchange it for a more "boring" and plain bra.
If I could go to the actual Breakout Bras store and try on the various 28 bands, etc., then I would probably take home this bra, this is the downside to internet shopping - not being able to try on many bras! Also, if I were to "size down" one band and "size up" three cups from 30G, that would put me at 60L, and for the basic padded plunge, I'm okay in 32G/70HH - to go all the way down to 60L for unpadded half-cup..that seems like an unlikely range for one person (maybe I'm just a skeptic!)
Anyway, I think this is a nice bra, I love colour, & other bratabase users have said this is a great fit, but this is a bra that I would like to be able to try on in multiple sizes.
TL; DR: A lovely bra, I just don't think it's meant to be b/c I live in Canada and I have to pay for the return shipping, and I don't want to have to send it back 3x. Read more 358 more words
This sz 60J was too big, 1 to 1.5 cup sizes. I messed up my Breakout Bras conversion.
About me: * 60H or 60HH in Comexim (i own 6) * 28F in most UK brands * Very, very rarely UK 30E or Comexim 65H
About Onyks -
* Colors are beautiful. This was among my fav Comexim sets. * Adorable matching panties * Uniquely comfortable, especially compared to Comexim's padded styles
* VERY inconsistent bra-to-bra on sizing * lace at the top may not lie flat, even in the true size. * mixed feelings about the boob shape ... a rounded, mound or pancake-ish look.
TLDR: Prepare to have to try and return ...this bra multiple times, to find the right fit.
Breakout Bras site notes the Onyks is very stretchy & recommends 1 band size low. I feel this is accurate.... kinda. I personally found 60 & 65 both seemed like they'd fit.
This blew me away because I am way small for a 30... I never met a single other Comexim 65 that was wearable - otherwise I was a solid 60. Yet somehow in unlined I took a 65. I actually own Comexim Sirene, a sister style unlined, in 65H.
Also I'll note, after a failed online order, I actually visited Breakout Bras physically so I tried on many different Onyks (and 100s of Comexims in general). The Onyks bands varied HEAVILY - all the Comexim bras vary, but Onyks was definitely the most obvious offender to me by a long shot. The fitting assistant even commented on how different various 28's seemed.
I think the unlined styles might just be extra inconsistent, even for Comexim. Be warned. Read more 168 more words
This was my first bra that actually fit me well. I love the narrow wires and narrow, projected cups. I love the support of a bra with a 3 hook closure, and this is the first one I've found that doesn't have cups that rub my armpits raw. Even though it is an unlined bra, it gives a very nice shape and look under my clothes, even in thin tops. But then again, even at work I'm not too concerned about my nipples showing through my clothes. The only thing that I've found is that after a couple months of wear the band has stretched out to the point of it riding up my back even on the loosest hooks. It really is a bummer, I love this bra.
Very pretty pink and gray, stretchy band. The straps are wide set enough to be irritating but that might be because I sister sized up to try this out.
The cup depth is similar to my 55HH (reduced cups) Rozalia. A little too small for my larger side, but I'll take it for less wrinkling on the other. Curious to see how this compares to an unaltered padded 55HH 3HC. Would like to try a 55HH, maybe with straps moved in, in this or a similar non-padded style.
