My love for Comexim extends well beyond the exceptional construction and customization of their bras. I feel better supporting a company who manufactures inside their borders, and the smaller carbon footprint associated with travel from Poland vs China is compelling for this treehugger. Serendipitously, Comexim made a butterfly bra. Because I adore pollinators, it was my first choice. This bra I ordered with overlapping gore wires, straps moved inward, two seams, and cookie pockets. Undoubtedly, narrow gores are critical to my comfort. This gore does roll a bit to the left, but it does not sit on my tissue. Fantastic! I sincerely appreciate ...the .7" strap width: this width better distributes the weight of my breasts. The band length was surprisngly snug at 28". If you need a 30" band you will require an extender or need to size up. The cotton used for cookie pockets is some of the softest I've ever felt: unbleached, perhaps dye-free knit. Bliss. Initially, the cups created quad boob. But, after my second short duration trial, the cup edge is stretching to allow for more upper fullness. Like Anna Pardal cuts, this bra lifts, centers, and rounds beautifully. I was certain this cut was minimizing until I wore a thin knit. Giggle. Wow. I have narrowed the wire to create more depth. This bra was 5.75" wide initially. I bent them to 5.5" and that increased the depth enough to dramatically improve my comfort. I am in love...with a butterfly bra.
Edit: This fits one week per month. Yesterday, I ordered the 65K 3HC. I'm optimistic these two sizes are all I require for a month of comfort and support.
This is my holy grail bra. I ordered it with the narrowed gore and lowered cups alterations, and it fits me like a dream. What an amazing bra. It's so comfortable and it makes my boobs look great. Words cannot express how much I love this bra. I might get it in 50HH next time since the band runs just a smidge big, but that's so minor I don't even consider it a problem. Comexim is the best. <3 <3 <3
My first Polish bra! The bra came to me with an extender, which I'm surprised I didn't need. I can do the bra up on the loosest hooks comfortably, maybe the band is just very stretchy. The bra is very comfortable.
Runs quite small in the cup and large in the band. The band measurements are identical to my Ingrid plunge in 70G, and like that bra, I could wear it without an extender if I weren't worried about strain on the hooks. The cups measure smaller than my Freya/Fauve 30Gs, even though this is equivalent to a 30GG. It does have much more immediate projection than those bras. The cup measurements are also nowhere near 2 volumes larger than the 70G Ingrid. They're a half-volume larger at most--too small for me.
Which would be fine, if the cup were open on top like Ewa and Fauve half-cups, but this ...is very closed at the center, and gives me quad boob. I don't think I can size up, because these wires (and therefore straps) are about the widest I can manage.
That's a huge disappointment, because I love the profile this bra gives otherwise. It's much more subtle, much less locked-and-loaded than a Ewa half-cup. But the quad is JUST significant enough to be noticeable under clothing.

This is such a gorgeous bra! The fabric is so soft and pretty. The butterflies are adorable and it is trimmed with pretty lace edging along the top of the cups. It is a half cup style, so it's more open on top. Unfortunately, I realized I needed a 3 part half cup as this one was just too shallow for me. It's even more beautiful in person! A must-have.
