I bought this secondhand to sate me until my ewa michalak order comes in since I have no properly fitting bras. My only other comexim bra is the basic in a 70HH that I bought secondhand that was too small in the cups and felt loose in the band, so I decided to go down a band size and up a cup size landing me in the 65k area. Unfortunately for me, this one is too small as well. It did have reduced cups, which I've read you should size up when getting reduced cups so that may have affected the fit.
The pattern is super cute though, ...I love the mint green with the floral design. It's also a very comfortable bra even though I'm quadding in it. This just leaves too many questions of what my comexim size actually is. Next I might try a 65L (no reduced cups) and hope that I fit into that but I'm not sure if that will work or not.
Regardless I'm keeping the bra until my EM order shows up and I hope they all fit. It's comfy and if you know your comexim size Id highly recommend it. Read more 91 more words
This bra was special ordered with reduced cups, reduced gore and more space at the wire. Compared to my basic plunge the alteration for reduced cups and gore was completed. I don't think more space was add at the wire because it feels and looks the same as my basic plunge. The cups are not deep enough at the bottom for me so I feel a little compressed but it is not bad enough to not wear it. The cups are narrow and fit well. I am happy that the cups are reduced which works with my shallow tall roots. I wish I could reduce the gore more ...but they said they can reduce no more then 2cm. The band is a little too stretchy. All the Comexim I've owned expect the Basic have stretched past 30in and stretch out pretty quickly so I might try a 60 band next. The band only has 2 hooks but I thought HH cup and up had 3 hooks. The print is lovely mint green flowers on a blue background, it reminds me of waterlilies. It has matching mint bows on the straps and the gore. The bow the gore looks silly because it just gets smooshed. The material and the padding is also really thin compared to my other bras. Light shines through it. Luckily this is not a problem for me through. Read more 133 more words
As absolutely beautiful this bra is, there is something off with the fit. I'm hoping others snap this beauty up as well, and can comment if they experienced the same. The only modification I request on Comexim bras is to include 3 hook fastening; however, it fits like it has both a lowered gore and taller cups. Because the cups are so tall, I have slight empty space near the strap I normally never have in these. Also, not sure if it's because of the tall cups or not, but I also have a good deal of empty space at the bottom of the cup, which is generally ...also never the case with Comexim because of their famed projection and narrow wires. I don't know if the one I received is a defect, or if this model is just constructed a bit differently. Good thing it's so damn gorgeous!
The print on this is absolutely beautiful, and perfection for the incoming warmer weather. I LOVE the crisp mint green, subtle floral pattern, and the slight pop of pink throughout the cup. It truly is a stunning bra.
The feel of the materials it's made out of are not the best feeling to the touch, The fabric itself is a bit rough, almost scratchy, though it doesn't irritate my super sensitive skin. It's just not as smooth and silky as most of their bras feel. As was the case with my 75J - Comexim » Dakota Green , the straps on this are more narrow than average. I will still wear and love this, but I wish the fit were more on par with my other Comexim bras.
EDIT: after a wash and day of wear, the materials feel MUCH softer (like, surprisingly so compared to before), and the fit is better, too. It's still not satin smooth, and the cups are still a bit too tall, but it's much more akin to other Comexim bras I have (and love). Read more 222 more words
I was really, really nervous ordering this bra because I'm nowhere near an H cup in any other brand. If I'd followed Comexim's sizing chart I would've ended up with a bra way too small, so THANK YOU Bratabase for measurements!!
The bra fits me beautifully. I love the pretty green flower pattern, and the stitching on the cups is rather flat, so it isn't visible under most of my thin shirts. It gives a nice rounded shape and decent lift.
The fabric was very stiff when I first received it, but after only a couple wears it's already softening up quite a bit. I expect it will be very soft and comfy after a couple washes.
This bra is beautiful, comfy (except under the arms) and appears to be well made. Since my only other Comexim is a (somewhat too small) 60HH Basic, I'll compare its fit to that bra. As ginganinja said, the fit is different with the PFM.
The PFM's band is significantly stretchier than the Basic. I'm really only comfortable with the PFM set to the tightest hook, while the Basic feels tight on its loosest hook. Consider sizing down in the band.
The PFM cups are significantly taller than the Basic, giving me empty space at the top of the cups. I measured the height along the ...front cup seam of the PFM as 2 cm taller than the Basic. It is even taller at the straps, and is significantly higher than the Basic under the arm. Had I known, I would have ordered reduced cups. FWIW, the gore is about the same as the Basic.
Obviously, you'd expect the cups to be a little taller on a 60J than a 60HH, but they seem really high at the strap, and angle down into a gore the same height as the 60HH. I've uploaded pics showing the front and side with the Basic worn over the PFM.
tl/dr- Pretty bra, but size down in the band, and reduce the cups for a fit more akin to the Basic Read more 123 more words
This bra has reduced cups and the straps moved in 2cm. It was purchased directly through Comexim so there are no tags. The pattern is so subtle but so fresh and sophisticated. There is a beautiful lace edging on the top of the cups, bows on the straps and on the center gore. The floral is difficult to describe as it's a wandering pattern that almost resembles flowers on the water. It's mostly in tones of green but with a tiny hint of pink every now and then. It's simply gorgeous! Sadly, I ordered the wrong size.
This bra is so much prettier in person. It's a soft, minty lace color with a floral design in various icy shades of green and small touches of pink. There is a tonal lace edging along the top of the cups and pretty matching green bows on the gore and each strap. The straps themselves are textured and extremely beautiful all on their own. This really is a gorgeous bra. It was ordered directly through Comexim so there are no tags. It was tried on only once, never worn. It just didn't fit me.
This Comexim definitely does fit different than my other Comexims (I currently have 6 - all are the same size, a 75F). The cups are more "closed off" on the top - which might be due to the lace detailing at the top/edge of the cups. This causes the very slightest bit of quading on my larger breast. Luckily this is not noticeable under clothing. The other difference with this Comexim is that the gore does not tack - there is about a .25 inch gap between the gore and my skin (the only other Comexim that I own that does this is my Irish Coffee). Still, this ...does not really affect the lift or comfort for me. Actually this bra is ridiculously comfortable! And it is SO unbelievably pretty - the mint green color is gorgeous! My bra actually does not have a pearl at the gore though - it has a silver "C" pendant (I'll post pictures soon). The shape is that wonderful lifted, rounded shape that most Comexims have. I actually don't find the cups to be that much taller than my other Comexims - I know that was a critique about this bra. I think they might be a little taller than the Irish Coffee and Basic - but those fit me quite low and I prefer taller cups. I also read one review that said the fit got better after washing the bra - so I will put an update for the fit after I wash it Read more 149 more words
