hello, summer! This is the perfect summer padded plunge bra that I picked up at the post office today. It's a bit lighter (feel & fabric - because the interior is white) than the Comexim basic, which feels a bit heavier and sturdier than this pearl flower mint plunge bra, but it's nice to have something a bit lighter for the summer.
The fit isn't perfect, but it's not Comexim's fault; I should've ordered 70HH. It maybe looks okay from the pictures, but it's a tad small on my larger side (left) and pinches there. I stepped on the scale and I actually weigh 10 pounds more than ...2 months ago, great /s. So, it makes sense why this bra is too small for me on my larger side, it probably would've fit me back then though.
I initially ordered 70HH, then had 2nd thoughts about it, emailed the office and I said that I wanted to change my order to 70H (like a crazy person...), but now 70HH would've been right so I should've just stuck to my original order. The moral of the story is: don't email the office so many times, once you submit it, submit it. LOL. Will definitely hold onto this and see if I lose some weight though, fingers crossed.
Other than that, maybe the bra is a bit grandma-ish, but I love it! I don't think you can tell from the photos, but this actually has many more interesting details than just plain light green: the gore and all of the fabric area under the cups (to the band) is one layer of the flower printed mesh, so it's transparent & makes the bra appear lighter/sexier, I dig it. The wings are the same print fabric, but they're sturdier and lined. I like how all the of the hardware and strap elastic is mint green. Also, there are pink/peach flowers in the print, but it doesn't really show up on the photos. There is a little C (for Comexim) emblem on the mint green bow -it would cool if my initials were "C," like Christy!
Per usual, this bra from Comexim is a winner; I just wish I hadn't gained 10 pds, or it would've fit perfectly. But I will still hold onto to it. As far as pricing, this bra is on their cheaper end, I think it's b/c there are lighter fabrics used. The price is 125 zloty for the bra, and 22 zloty for shipping, so 147 zl total. For all of the details and the sewing on this bra, wow, definitely worth it! Thank you, Comexim = )
It's too bad b/c this bra is soooo close to perfection; if I gain 10 pounds I have to go up a cup in padded plunges though (apparently). Update: 3-Jun-2021, I decided to order it in 70HH. This bra is just too perfect for summer! Read more 374 more words
This bra is very pretty and delicate looking. It's colors are light enough that I can wear it under light colored shirts, and it does not show through.
This band is nice and firm for me, I tend to wear 30 bands more frequently than 28, so I was happy to find this comfortable. The cups fit quite nicely. I get a nice lifted and round shape, as is expected with Comexim. I am not quadding in this cup, but the gore is also not quite tacking. I would be interested to try one cup size up to see if it would tack.
This is a very pretty bra and so comfortable. I ordered this bra after realizing that my Comexim bras in 80J are not fitting as well as they used to. I asked for increased depth at the wire, reduced cup height and for the straps to be moved in. I’m not sure about the straps, but the other modifications were done. I’m FOB, projected and centre full, and this bra works well for me. I was worried I would be swimming in this bra, but that is not the case. In my old bras, I was noticing that I had more back fat hanging over the band ...than I’d noticed before. With this bra, my back is smooth and all my tissue seems to be contained in the cups. I like the increased wing height in this size as it keeps my sides smoother looking, too. The pattern on this bra is very delicate and I have not had issues with it being noticeable under my clothes. The bra is very pretty, supportive and provides good support.
At this point, this bra is my best fitting bra and I’m in need of more bras in this size. I am not sure if this is just the natural progression of things as my breasts adjust to properly fitting bras or if this increased cup size is something temporary (although it’s now been an issue for a few months, so hormones can’t be blamed and I can’t hold off any longer on not ordering more bras). While I love the idea of the half cup bras, I am more successful in finding Comexim plunge bras that work for me and I’ll be sticking with the plunge style on my next order. I’m not sure, at this cup size, if I should order one bra without mods to see how it fits in comparison. I’m wondering if the immediate projection I need would be met with a standard K cup or if I should get the same modifications that I’ve requested for this bra. Read more 234 more words
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 is an older Comexim model and seems to have less projection at the wire than my newer model Graffiti and Hot Chocolate. I get some wrinkling of the fabric near the wire. I had requested the cup height reduced 1cm, and the straps moved in 2cm. They reduced the cup height but did not move in the straps, as I have two bras from MamaPagan with the straps moved in and the straps on this are about an inch further out. This makes the cups gape on me, mostly at the gore. If I do not angle the straps in, the gaping is removed ...but the straps are almost off my shoulders. This gaping is not noticeable under a shirt, so it is acceptable. The straps are not rubbing on my tail of spence so I'm not sure if I want to move them in myself.
Visually this bra is quite pleasing, it's a lovely mint colour with a nice lace ribbon detail on the straps. The center gore is marked with a silver coloured metal C with a white gemstone. The band on this one stretches to about 28.5", and is comfortable on the loosest set of hooks. The cups are 8.5" tall in the middle, but because of the gaping it feels like the cup is taller at the gore when it's around average for this cup size.
I think Comexim did a pretty good job on this bra other than not moving the straps in, I am quite happy with this one. Read more 150 more words
This bra's measurements have been altered
Straps moved in 2cm, reduce cup height 1 cm
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
