  1. Ingrid Plunge Bra (289)

    Used to fit

    I have to share this review as an adventure because I am now the proud owner of a FITTING BRA!!!

    It even seems like it fits better everytime I put it on. The Comexim Ingrid Plunge has gotten some flack for its pattern, but I think the antique styled floral print is perfectly fitting a rural farm girl surrounded by flowers. The padded plunge is a very "in your face" shape - the girls are up and out and as my sister said "it's not that they look bad...they're just so...prominent." This is a function of the wearer as well as the shape, because I've been ... disguising my breasts with frumpy tops and sports bras for so long I'm not sure she was even aware of how very 'prominent' they are. The shape isn't perfect for every top or occasion, but the bra fits and is in my possession and is the first non-athletic bra to do that ever, in my entire life. I won't go into my feelings about this - we probably have whole spaces somewhere on this site dedicated to tearfully share the life changing event that owning a bra that fits truly is - but I know many of you understand what it's like to be confident and comfortable with the entire front half of my body for the first time since I was 15.

    The bra itself - is comfortable, supportive and well made. I have narrow rooted, close-set and center full, pendulous breasts that are soft and also full on top. This can be tricky to fit I think, since I am prone to having breast tissue molded into places that aren't attractive or comfortable - like the cleo marcie I tried earlier this week that had wide wires and a high gore - tissue was pushed out to the sides as well as over the top of the wires at the center. In the 65N - Comexim » Burgundy Half Cup (357) I had empty space on the outside of the cups and overflow in the center. I think I would have had the same problem with the Ingrid padded plunge had the cups not fit almost perfectly. Another plus is the padding disguises any other weird soft tissue stuff that might be happening inside the cup itself.

    I'm sure I'll find better fitting bras in a shape I find more flattering in the future, but I doubt I'll ever feel as grateful and overjoyed as I do now reviewing my first ever fitting bra. Yay!


    Update - October 2016
    Now that I've worn this bra few times for long days and have gotten over my ecstatic 'fitting bra' glow (seriously, I've been wandering around in a well supported haze, gleefully whipping off my shirt for anyone showing even the slightest interest). But now I realize that I probably need more immediate projection for a truly comfortable long-term fit. On a few drives home I've had painful wires digging into my ribs below my IMF, and noticed the inside of the cups have some wrinkles after wear. From what I've learned here I believe the wires are pushed down over time and dig into my ribs due to lack of immediate projection in the cup or an overabundance of immediate projection in my boobs! It's not unbearable by any means but definitely something I'll consider for future purchases.

      There's something very Jane Austen, period British, about it. If my husband didn't detest beige, I would be all over it.

    • Congratulations! It looks so good on you! I have this bra too (I haven't reviewed it - shame on me for being lazy!) and I think the pattern is very pretty. A beautiful color scheme for Fall too!

    • Congrats! It looks lovely on you! The colors in that floral print look nice with your skin tone.

      Yay congratulations!! Comexim is wonderful. This bra looks fabulous on you. I have a circular love/hate relationship with its pattern. I'm not a fan of florals or anything that could look like my grandmas curtains. I really didn't like Ingrid when i first saw her. But she has won me over somehow & now I love her colors. Sometimes i still think "man it really does look like a couch" but not enough to stop me from (finally) asking Comexim to make me one :-P

      I dont think anyone in my family ever had a floral couch

    • 1

      dbmamaz We were the only ones around that I know of. We rescued it off the streets (yeah...it was gross but we were super broke) and the pattern was almost the same as this one. Let me just say this pattern works better on a bra than on a couch.

    • lcl0706 My partner had the same "couch" reaction to my Ingrid. He detested it because it reminded him of the velvet orange/brown floral couches that were popular in the 70's/80's. After he said that, Ingrid was ruined for me as well. We had that same couch when I was a kid. I couldn't get it out of my head after that.

      It looks great! Out of all the bras I've ever seen, this is literally my favorite pattern. I love the earth tone florals. I've one on order, hope it fits as well as yours!

      Stunning!! Looks fantastic!!

      It looks fabulous on you, congrats! I also had the same reaction when I got my first Comexim plunge in the correct size for me. It took me quite a while to fall for Ingrid, as in general I don't like florals, but she won me over in the end with her unusual Autumnal colour scheme.

      Ok, just one more comment - sometimes some of my Ewas give me that same feeling, like, woah, nelly, I know i have boobs but, thats a lot! But I've started to get used to . . .thats just the body I have and its ok

      But otoh, they are a lot less pronounced in a BM

    • Thank you so much everyone! I love this place :)

    • This bra looks lovely on you! 😊 Regarding the pattern, I guess it's always a matter of preference, from my side it's the prettiest bra ever :D

      OMG thank you for this review! I have center-full breasts and I was so on the edge about getting the Ingrid.

    • 1

      dezeiram I'm so glad my review was helpful! I've gotten so much help and advice on bratabase but haven't gotten to do much contributing or reciprocation yet since I'm still learning how bra fitting and everything work. I hope the Ingrid works out well for you!

  2. Basic Plunge Bra (170)

    55J

    Fits

    Holy shit I wrote out this entire review and when I went to hit save and have it post to the front page, it timed out and logged me out and I lost the whole review!! Well, here we go again lol. Hopefully I can remember everything I wrote.

    Well folks, I think I can finally review this bra, despite having not worn it very much at all (for reasons which will become clear soon). I've been hyping it up enough that you deserve to know all the weirdness that is going on lol.

    My boobs: ~26FF/G, narrow and tall roots, even to FOT, enough space between my breasts to ... comfortably wear taller gores.

    I got my first Basic in 2018 in 55J with no alterations, and it has been an absolute staple in my wardrobe since then and fits me nearly perfectly (and I love the shape it gives under clothing). My only slight qualms with it have been that with certain outfits, the cups are a little tall (mostly with tank tops), and the straps/armpit show out the side of some sleeveless shirts. So, when I decided to order a backup, I requested for the cups to be reduced by 1cm, and straps to be moved in 1cm. Well, the upper section of the cups were definitely reduced, but with that came an unexpected consequence. I had explicitly not asked for any gore alteration, because I figured it would come as the standard height, which I would've been fine with. But when the cups were reduced, they also rotated the cups outward slightly (imagine the central apex of the cups as the axis), which created a more straight-necklined, balconette shape. Because of this, the gore was inexplicably HEIGHTENED, and the wings were slightly reduced. I checked against my OG Basic, and the wires seem to be the same between both models except for this rotation. Another consequence of this is that despite me asking for the straps to be moved in by 1cm, they are actually positioned wider than my OG Basic. I took a ton of photos comparing this Basic with my OG Basic, which you can see if you come to the full review page. In a lot of these photos, I lined up the wires so you can easily see the difference in gore/bridge height, cup height, wing height, and strap placement. It's really quite fascinating from a patterning/sewing perspective, but as a customer it's really quite annoying lol. Moving forward, it seems clear to me that if you want to maintain the original plunge shape of the bra, you need to request a reduced gore along with the reduced cups to keep the same angle of the neckline.

    Practically speaking, because of the change in neckline, this bra is more open on top and gives me more cakes on a plate style cleavage. It also doesn't have as much coverage as my OG Basic, and makes me feel more jiggly and less supported, as if my boobs are sitting on top of a shelf lol. It gives me a pretty pointed, projected shape, which isn't my favourite (or at least certainly not the shape I aimed to get from this particular bra for its particular purpose). Because of all these oddities, I've barely worn this bra since I got it, which means the cups are still rather stiff, as it hasn't gotten a chance to soften up yet from wash and wear. This further discourages me from wearing it, so it's just an unfortunate cycle lol. Despite all this, I won't be emailing Comexim about it, because it took about a month to ship to me in Canada, and that was back in mid-January, so I'm just gonna hold onto it until I get too annoyed to keep it, or I actually start getting some use out of it when I need to wear my light coloured bras more often with my summer wardrobe. Hope y'all enjoyed this (IMO) wild ride lmao

    TL;DR: If you want to maintain the plunge shape, you should probably request a reduced gore along with reduced cups.

      The new comexim plunges stay balconette-y even without reduced cups! I think they just changed their pattern after 2017.

      Also, thanks for such a thorough review! Sorry you had to write it twice lol

      It's looks supportive from the photos, but I totally get you from the *cakes on a plate*, jiggly perspective - I have that in a bra that I ordered (a Curvy Kate bra), and it is not my favourite feeling, so I plan to list it.

      My package from Poland is taking over a month : ( I ordered the Pearl Mint Plunge, it was shipped Apr 14 and I still don't have it.

      My last order of bras from the US took a month, so I think shipping is particularly slow r.n.

      addendum: I feel your pain on losing your entire first review. I did that once, the Sugar Candy bra - very detailed review, and then I had to rewrite it, #painful.

    • 1

      Yeah that looks much taller and straight across than my basic without any alternations. I'm up to a 75GG/H in Comexim and the straps are too wide for tank tops now :( At a 75G I didn't have that problem. I think the Lily has a lower gore than other Comexim plunges to begin with?? I ordered two custom 75G's but I grew out them between ordering and receiving but the Lily seems lower gored than the basic if I remember correctly....

    • 1

      marilynne I would agree slightly, but this is way beyond the normal new “balconette-y” cut IMO. My Scottie and Yellow Birds still have a shorter gore than this, and they’re both standard except for straps moved in 1cm on the Yellow Birds.

    • 1

      sherrach898 I see what you mean. It seems like comexim shortened the cups, raised the gore and moved the straps outward from the original cut and changing any of that rotates the cups to make it worse.

    • 2

      Great detailed review, and thanks for the comparison photos. It made me kinda sad seeing the old plunge because I think the old version would’ve worked out better for me. This new basic plunge was my first try at comexim and it was a disaster lol. But the 3HC worked out for me so I guess I can’t complain.
      I’m curious, it looks like the new basic is made from different materials?

    • 2

      margesimpson The new Basic has different strap elastic and slightly different lace trim, but other than that it's made of the same materials. My old Basic is just dingy which could be what's making it look different lol

    • 2

      sherrach898 thanks LOL
      I thought it looked like a softer material

  3. Bridget Half Cup (554)

    like

    65HH

    Fits

    My shape is narrow and short rooted, slightly pendulous, soft, and low set.

    This is my second Bridget. I exchanged my 65J (with alterations) with another bratabase user because it was gaping slightly when I tried to wear it. I'm happy to report that this 65HH fits me, (and I hope my 65J fits her). The bra itself is gorgeous. The lace is a creamy mauve, and the lace adorns the cups and wraps all the way around the band to the clasps. I appreciate this detail because not all bras do this. This was originally a 'faux' longline of course, but it was altered to be made as ... a 3HC. The straps are black and fairly stretchy, and there is a small classy black bow on the gore. The band has 4 sets of clasps and it is snug without being tight. I have lots of 'room' to adjust the band in to a tighter clasp as the elastic wears out.

    The shape this bra creates is nice and rounded. This will make a great summer bra because it's so light. I tried it on under a tank (pictures), and I didn't see any seams or lace through the tank top, so I should be able to wear it with just about anything. This bra is also extremely comfortable, as are all my Comexims.

    Overall I'm very happy with this bra and the quality, comfort, and appearance are excellent.

  4. Onyks Non-padded Half Cup Underwire Bra (CMONYKS)

    13
    like

    70L

    Fits

    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.

    65HH

    Fits

    This came from jlcl119 ...I have loved this one for a while, especially after I saw the review Wilderness1 had on it. I had some initial issues on my end getting this but I’m super glad I did.

    My shape is soft and pendulous, even to fob fullness, taller roots but shallow upper tissue, and center full. I’m functionally short rooted and fob. I usually wear a 30FF but sometimes size down to 30F due to my shape issues. In Ewa Michalak I generally do 70F but can do 65 bands if they stretch to 29” or more. In Comexim, I've ... typically gone for 65HH/J or 70H/HH depending on the cut and alterations.

    I have to say that I was nervous about this being a 65 band, and newer. But the original owner is a veteran here and I trust her measurements to be pretty accurate (and close to my own). While my stretched measure was a little smaller, I am pretty conservative with how much I pull, and I could tell once I got it that the band was a stretchier one. The band is perfect. The cup height was another concern because I have definitely had a mix of cup height and prefer it to be lower as I am not very full on top. Could I use 1cm less? Maybe. Same with the gore. I could possibly get a little bit lower. I think that this bra is a way better fit than the 65HH - Comexim » Queen Of Hearts Plunge Bra (367) . I think the measurements are similar but there’s something about this that feels better. The foam maybe? The only problem I have is that I would have had the straps moved in 2cm for my petite frame and narrow shoulders that tend to slope. The straps are definitely doable, but wider than I need. I might see if I can find someone locally to alter the straps for me. I’m still considering trying the 65H/70G with 2cm added depth.

    The material on the outside is so soft. The cups are lined with a silky satin material for the cookie pockets. I don’t have any cookies as I no longer have any Ewas with them. But, I’m also a few pounds lighter after having some appetite issues in January when I was sick, so I might fill up the small side a little bit more if I gain the volume back. I must email Joanna and find out which ones are the same construction and materials. I like it a lot. The bottoms are also a perfect fit.

    Anyway, I love love love it!

      Thanks everyone. Yeah it’s definitely too wide straps and borderline too tall so I think I am either going to request 1cm lower cups and gore height with the straps moved in 2cm, or size down to the 65H/70G and request 2cm added depth to the wire. But it’s mostly pretty good. I’m about 5 pounds lower than normal so we’ll see if it comes back and affects the fit.

      I'm super new to Comexim and very interested in this bra! Would you say their plunge and half cup styles fit TTS then? Or have you decided whether to try the 65H? I'm a 32F UK, even fullness and don't fit bras that require FOT. Super confused over what size to get for myself. Any ideas?

    • 3

      Hi mintchocchip ! Comexim is a different size scheme than UK sizes. This 65HH roughly translates into a 30G UK. I’m between a 30F and 30FF. These days I mostly lean towards 30FF (so sister size to your 32F). Cups are scaled in 2cm increments instead of 1” (2.5cm) which means that in our size range, 1-2 cups up from the normal UK size is about right. But shape matters too. I have soft, even to fob, functionally short roots due to shallow upper fullness of tallish roots.

      The plunge is better suited for fot tissue usually, the discussion lately has been whether or not the plunge has changed in the fit/design, specifically referring to this bra. It does feel more like a balconette than a plunge. The overall cup height is shorter than some of the other bras in the same size has been. If you look at the 65HH - Comexim » Jade Plunge pictures you’ll see it’s a little bit more plunge like. The cups are taller too.

      The 3HC is deeper and narrower of the half cups. It’s still shallower than the plunge and most people have to size up. I’m 28” snug but prefer bands that stretch to 29-30” without distorting the wires so it’s usually a 65 with a stretchy 4 column closure or a 70. If you are a 32, you’ll need a 70 or 75.

      Does any of this help?

    • 1

      Hi Calluna , thanks! I believe we have similar shapes though I am still unsure about my roots. I’m thinking of a 70G to start. Do you think I’m on the right track? Or should I go for a 70H? I would like a little bit cleavage boost but without quadding.

    • I’m contemplating a 70G, but only if I decide to get depth at the wire added. There’s no way that it would fit otherwise. I currently have my 70H - Comexim » Hot Chocolate Plunge and it’s a lower gore with 2 cm added depth to the wire. I could probably do 1cm depth or none at all. But I think it’s depending on the style of plunge because the Hot Chocolate seems like a more classic Comexim plunge compared with this Scottie. And, additionally, my 70s are still tight. I definitely could not get away with either this Hot Chocolate or my 70H - Comexim » Triss 3hc (which is a little bit small on me) in a 65 band. The bands of these are closer to a true 30 though I measure 28” snug (I just have a sensitive sternum and periodically inflamed ribs so I need a little bit more give than most). You’re probably going to need a 75 band if you are a 32F. I’d say 75G or 75H if it’s altered and depending on the alterations.

    • Calluna the designs I was looking at apart from Scottie are Ginger, Patricia, Victoria and Elise. I did look at Reddit and on here and everyone has varying experiences with these and some say Comexim has reworked their sizing too. My snug underbust is 32”, so that would be a 75? I think considering there two (?) different styles on my wishlist I should probably not be too greedy and just get two sister sizes to try first. Would the half cups fit differently size wise than the plunges?

      Ok so yes, the half cups so run smaller than the plunges. Also, the Ginger of the list you have is a totally different fit from the other plunges as far as I know. It’s a shallower and wider cut. I had a Victoria 3HC and it was lovely though a tad too small. I can’t speak for the others but there are reviews and information on the Patricia and Elise, I believe. If you are US based, you might be better off trying an unaltered 75G in a plunge or a 75H in a 3HC from breakout bras and go from there. Check out the data and measurements on the sizes here. However, you might need to size up still. If you know what your horizontal perimeter is, use that as a guide for the cup depth. If you have a difference between the horizontal and vertical, you may want to average the two and create a range.

      Calluna thank you! So by "shallower and wider", you mean the cup tends to be smaller? I'm not in the US so would have to order directly. How long does shipping usually take, is there tracking, and how long do refunds take to process (if you have ever returned stuff)?

    • 1

      Maybe I’ve misunderstood, and please correct me if I have, but I think shallower and wider might mean there is the same volume in the cup but it is just distributed differently.... less projection and more width- so the same amount of tissue takes up more space side to side rather than nipple to chest wall. Depending on other factors like how close set you are or where your fullness is greatest,etc , a wider cup side to side (left to right) may or not result in a shape mismatch or a well fitting but nonetheless unbearably uncomfortable bra.

      Unsolicited observation about breast size perception by humans in general: I think there might be a tendency in the world generally to consider breast size and cup size solely based on the amount of projection forwards from the chest wall, rather than the over all volume of tissue regardless of distribution. I don’t think this tendency serves the bra wearing population very well. It’s hard to break out of this ingrained habit and that makes it harder to accurately communicate about breast and cup shape and to find a properly shaped bra. IDK. Shutting up now.

    • 2

      Yes dagmarwulfe that’s exactly what I mean. The tissue goes farther back around your ribs and projects less. It’s like comparing an 8 oz coffee mug to an 8 oz soup bowl. The shapes of the two are drastically different. If you put the mug up to your chest at the opening, it would occupy a smaller surface area than the soup bowl. The soup bowl would cover a larger area but not necessarily be as deep.

      mintchocchip I've only ever ordered direct from Comexim and the bras were altered so not returnable.

    Hasn't set fit

    I was quite surprised to have never seen the Red Panter reviewed on here!

    No, a red leopard / panther print may not be everyone's cup of tea. Yes, it's a little gaudy.. Yes, it's a little 'in your face'..
    But somehow I was expecting more love for this bra (; Was super happy to receive it in my Black Friday order.

    Requested alterations:
    - 3 hooks, 4 rows in the band
    - straps moved in 3 cm
    - lowered and narrower gore
    - could the X-straps made to be detachable please?

    Seems like these were all done!

    Fit:
    As far as I can tell this fits like a 'classic' Comexim plunge, but I've only started ... trying their plunges since Princess / Gloria / Andromeda.
    I know recently there's been talk of older plunges fitting differently than newer? Did ask for a lowered gore and moved in straps, which may have altered the fit a little.
    The 70K feels great, some very slight overflow on my larger breast - but I do tend to fit bras to my smaller breast, and prefer a mild bulge over gaping. For reference my usual UK size is a fuller 32G, bordering on 32GG. My shape could be described as taller roots, mostly FOT, average set, more projected and quite firm.

    Comfort:
    Red Panter fits me quite comfortably and as good as most of my bras get! However, as with the Yoko plunge, to be honest I could have used a little more depth at the wire. It slides down a little during the day, illustrating some lack of projection - and I keep wondering how I ever considered myself wide and shallow?

    Look:
    Like I said: I expected many more people to purchase this bra, as I think it's the perfect combination of fun, practicality and wearability - without losing a hint of edginess. Really love the vibrant red, the size of the leopard spots, the added straps and the overall appearance.

    I asked for the X-straps to be detachable and yay, they made it happen!
    Very excited about that, because with the straps being stuck in place and me mostly wearing low-ish necklines; it would have been more of a special occasion bra, or at least me having to somewhat consider which clothes to wear in what setting, whilst now I can wear this with anything, going anywhere.

    The briefs were made to order in 'Princess' (tanga) style like I asked, and they're a great comfortable fit in my standard Comexim XL.
    (43-ish inch hips /butt for reference)

      Thanks for the review. I have been eyeing this up but the x straps always put me off. Having them removable is a great idea. I have also never tried one of the lower plunges, so I worry about projection? I have it added in the 3hcs, but not in the higher gored plunge. I wonder if these lower gored plunges are shallow like the 3hcs?

    • 1

      Soooo cute!! My last comexim order they only did 1 of the 2 alternations I requested :/

    • 1

      souxies in my experience this plunge is definitely deeper / more projected than the 3HC!
      And yes quite pleased with the removable straps (:

      confused thanks! And I can relate, some of my alterations in this order didn't get done (Yoko, Wildcat briefs) which is always a shame! I'd rather they charged extra for them - if that made it more predictable that they would get done!

    My shape is low set, short and narrow rooted, and soft.

    I was surprised by this bra, because I was expecting to get a padded bra. It's a 2HC (half cup with one vertical line), and it is a soft cup. I normally take Comexim soft cups in one size smaller than their padded cups, so this bra fits but doesn't provide the level of lift or support that I like from a soft cup. The straps are wide and supportive. The band is slightly stretchy (I could have stretched it more but the cups were distorting). The band has 4 x 3 sets of hooks, which is awesome. ... The cups themselves are quite stretchy inside. I could probably have quite a bit more volume and they would still fit (maybe that's why I get those lines along the inside?), but there is a thin black lining along the cups upper edge that may cut in if I had a lot more volume too. The bra itself is pretty, and the patterns are black flowers that are velvety to the touch. The pattern comes up higher onto the cups upper outter edge, and ends wtih a little bow on the strap. Pretty, but I don't have enough upper fullness to make it stand out. I requested straps moved in 1 cm and overalapping gore. It looks like these alterations were done.

    Overall it's beautiful, excellent quality, and comfortable... but I really wanted a padded bra....

    Well that's it, the quest is over. I found The One.

    My breasts are lifted, supported, nicely shaped. The wires aren't digging in painfully anywhere. The seams in the cups are low profile, making the bra nearly invisible under clothing. The cup padding is thick enough to hide nipples, but doesn't feel too heavy. The cups are rather closed, but they work for my centre-full, full-on-bottom breasts. I'm not scared to bend over and fall out. The workmanship looks good, and it doesn't look like an old lady bra. The bow details and lace trim make the bra pretty, in a discreet sort of way.

    Comexim Basic Bra, I wish I'd found you years ago!

    This bra is gorgeous! The photos of just the bra (not the ones of me wearing the bra) are closer to the actual color. It's a really gorgeous cool, green shade. I ordered this directly from Comexim (via email), though this version of the Jade (without the lace) is available through Wellfitting now. The band is definitely snug on this one, but I've found that to be the case with all of the "silky" fabric Comexim bras I've owned (this is nowhere near as tight as the Angelina or Basic though!). I do wish it had 4 rows of hooks instead of 3, but I'll just need to ... wear it with an extender for a little bit. I'd actually requested 4 rows of 2 hooks, but did not get that alteration on any of the bras I ordered. The only alteration that was actually made to this bra was that I had the straps moved in 2cm. I have very narrow shoulders so I find that this alteration works really well on me. This is going to be a great basic bra since the seams are fairly smooth and the bra is super comfortable. It's definitely my favorite out of the new Comexim designs! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

      Wow! I love this shade of green. You don't see it too much in the lingerie world.

    • The bra is gorgeous. I love the color. I can tell by looking at it that it wouldn't work for me though. It has the same top as the s syrena I have"/
      Do you know what the reason is for four rows of hooks instead of 3 or 2 even. Sometimes I randomly find I get 4 rows and sometimes 3 with the same exact alterations on bras. Only difference was one bra was a 50 band and one was a 55.

    • girl333 I'm not sure about the rows of hooks with Comexim. I have some that have 4 rows of 2 and then some that have 3 rows of 2. I wish that they would do 4 rows of 2 like EM bras since many Comexims run tight.

    • 1

      And thanks! Yes, the color is stunning! Comexim should do more green bras! :)

    • RebelGrrrrl I wouldn't say that they run tight as much as they run in cms +10cms. When you convert it that way the bands make more sense and run more TTS. I can't remember where I read that the first time though.

    • girl333 Most of my Comexims are TTS, but there are a few that when measured are .5" or more shorter (all of my Comexims are 75 bands). This one is actually really similar to many of my Comexim bands (measuring 24" unstretched), but the fabric is a lot less stretchy than some.

    • 1

      most of mine run small, but I need them to. My sonia was REALLY small though it was crazy. Usually mine are 25 or 25.5 inches and they're 55 bands. 75 bands would be 33.46 if you add 10 cm than convert to inches. So see what I mean? They're supposed to run about that small.

      bubblegum You're welcome! :D Yes! It might be my new favorite bra :)

    • 1

      girl333 Yeah, that makes sense. I just find it annoying that some Comexim bras I need to wear an extender and others I'm already wearing on the middle hooks. I love Comexim, but I don't find them to be consistent with their bands. Maybe that's just me though :)

    • 1

      RebelGrrrrl I don't think i't just you. They aren't consistent at all with their bands. My 50 band is larger than my 55 band. I need an extender for the 55 band and the 50 band is perfect. They just make more sense when you use CM plus 10. They're still crazy inconsistent. Even within the same bra and size. I bought a beauty in a 60K expecting to take in the band. I got super lucky and the MAX stretch was 25. So I didn't have to take it in.

  10. Green Velvet Half Cup

    60H

    Fits

    Green Velvet is a discontinued model from 2011. It was originally offered in the standard plunge cut, but I was recently lucky enough to have Anna make this into a 3HC just for me. As this fabric is five years old, I do not know if there is any left. If interested, you can absolutely contact Comexim and ask, but I'm not promising that my set didn't use it all up!
    Green Velvet is a rich emerald green mesh fabric with a soft floral pattern flocking. It is stunningly gorgeous in its simplicity and its rarity of color in the lingerie world. It looks fantastic against my pale skin ... and dark hair. I feel like a forest queen when I wear it.
    The elastics, clasp, and adjusters are all green. It's beautiful.

    My band is utterly true to size for a 60 stretching to exactly 28". This is the first bra I've had that stretched dead on to it's tagged size. It's perfect on the loosest set of eyes.
    The clasp is 3x3. I didn't ask for it, it just came that way. It's not a really wide clasp, so the third row isn't a problem for me.
    The straps are smooth and soft on the bottom. They're easy to adjust and surprisingly stay in place.
    The wires are narrow and comfortable. They are soft and my gore doesn't quite tack (this is an ongoing issue with me and Comexim. Lack of center projection perhaps? Too soft? I don't know, but it doesn't interfere with support, so whatever).
    The cups are nicely projected at the wire then come in to create a round slightly minimized shape. I find this so very much like the shape that Ewa Michalak HP cuts give, but more comfortable because the straps are set in more.

    The underwear are custom. When I ordered the set, I didn't pick a size. I just told Anna I wanted a thong and a brief and then gave her my hip measurements. They are just a touch too large and they are very high cut. They are not sexy, but the fabric is so beautiful that they aren't matronly either.

    This is my first Comexim 3HC, and it's perfect. I love this bra and I love this cut. I will always order a 3HC from Comexim in the future. I'm actually considering reordering all of my current Comexims in a 3HC and selling off my plunges.
    Green Velvet 3HC is another bra that I will keep in my drawer forever and ever.

    Didn't fit

    Thanks to Anya99 for this bra! I like the comfort of Comexim plunges. This one in particular has a shiny/smooth viscose like fabric that doesn't have much stretch to it which I had never experienced with a bra before. The straps are moved in, cookie pockets added, and wires are overlapped. I have short, narrow roots, soft tissue, squishy skin, bottom fullness, inner fullness, congenital symmastia, and I am short. I need a very low and narrow gore, short wings, narrow wires, and immediate projection. I like the cookie pockets because I use cookies to strategically add lift so I can stand a slightly higher ... gore. Otherwise I need a gore under 2.4 inches which limits me to a couple of styles in my size. The overlapped wires along with the cookies help with comfort. This would be counted as a fit if I did not have congenital symmastia. The gore tacks at the bottom but not at the very top because I have tissue between my breasts. What matters to me is that it isn't uncomfortable at the top of the gore and in this bra it is not, so I count it as a win. I plan to order a reduced gore with Comexim in the future. The first time I wore this I did not notice the strap placement, but I had to change into a different outfit later in the day and changed into an Ewa Michalak plunge and I realized immediately how much wider the straps were. Because I have soft skin, some tissue does escape around the armpit area by the end of the day but the comfort of the strap placement is nice and I'm used to doing an extra scoop and swoop one or two times a day so it doesn't bother me. The band is wide and has three hooks which feels great for support and also reduces the bulges I get around thinner bands due to my squishy skin. I tried a variety of Comexim plunges without alterations and thought it wouldn't be a good match but I am glad I gave this one a try because it fits well and has inspired me to get more.

      yea! those colours look great on you!
      I'm also surprised (I mean, pleasantly so) with how different the material are with each comexim. always quality. I've never tried cookie pads, but maybe I should get some. the plunge I got from anya99 is such a nice fabric, too.

    • 3

      Thank you! I was more focused on alterations and measurements than colors and I didn't realize how colorful it was until I got it. I like the colors and the shine on the fabric. I'm so used to lace and embellishments and this has its own personality without either of those. The cookie pads help me get some lift so I don't have pain with my symmastia. They do add to the shape a bit but I avoid in the summer when possible because they get really sweaty. Although sweat absorbing/cooling pads may be a great idea for the summer, I wonder if those exist. Your reviews and Reddit comments actually helped me in my decision to try Comexim again, so thank you!

    • 2

      Lol. you're welcome.
      I think comexim is underrated for smaller sizes. Esp. the smaller band/smaller cup or smaller band/medium cup.
      But I think it's because those people have so many other options (like Aerie, or whatever...fast fashion) like bras that are readily available but not as good quality. which I can see the temptation of convenience, but I'd rather wait a month to get what I want from Poland, lol.

    • 2

      BraOdyssey I think it could be an underrated brand, and/or people are intimidated to shop since it's far away and seems foreign. Similar to how we may view cultural foods or practices. When I was a smaller size I would have loved Comexim for it's smaller bands and comfortable materials. At least I found them now. I'm glad you share your knowledge with others about the brand!

    • 2

      Wow the fit looks fabulous, and love the color/pattern on you. Bra-win high-five!
      Comexim is definitely one of my favorites for comfort. I also appreciate their wide size range, not just for myself. I got my very petite tiny teenager a bra from them in size 28DDD and it’s her first real fitting bra!
      I’m sure if more people in my daughter’s size range gave Comexim a shot, they’d fall in love with their bras also.

    • 2

      Happy2BraShop thanks! I agree with the size range. I got one for my mom who is barely in matrix sizing but needs narrow wires and she's under 5 feet tall and it fits her so well and it's comfortable. She was amazed!

    • 4

      Another thing I think is great, is the price! Especially since the sizes I’m ordering are outside the matrix, it’s nice that they are still affordable vs costing more due to odd size. If only all my daughter’s clothes could cost the same as a typical person’s, that’d be great lol.

    • 4

      Thank you for this review, WildWolff ! I, too, need very low center gores because of close-set breasts. I never thought of using cookies for lift to avoid discomfort from a slightly too high gore. I wonder if that would work for me. Despite not having symmastia, I find gores less than an inch high to be ideal. The only solution I thought of for higher gored bras is to remove the wire, cut it down, reinsert, and sew the channel back up. Bra wires are tough, though!

    • 2

      learningaboutbras I found some cookies that are long and short and pretty thick on Etsy and I use them at the bottom of a cookie pocket to support my short roots. It's not ideal and I don't do it every day. But I want to wear a larger selection of bras so it's a compromise I'm willing to work with. I have symmastia and soft tissue so I need a low gore, but the soft tissue spills out of the cups so it's an unfortunate combination! And super plungey bras have such tall cups which don't work with how short I am. Have you tried overlapped wires? They help a lot if you're close set and provide more support. For altering wires, if you're aware of the size and length of a wire you need I recommend purchasing them from a bra supply store and just replacing them. Then you don't have to cut a wire.

    Well my very long awaited Comexim bikini has arrived!
    I am very pleased with it over all. Love the pattern and colours.
    Custom 3hc with 1cm added depth.
    Made from the usual type of swimwear fabric and only 1 hook, makes for a very stretchy band! This suits me personally. I do not need much support, and on hols I can not stand a firm bikini top. I usually wear a stringy triangle thing! after a disater last year ( pre menstrual boobs, spilling out ) I decided a bit more coverage and flexibility for swelling would be sensible😂 If you need support and lift, I highly recommend sizing down in ... the band. # Edit - After a little trial I discovered the loose band caused big gaping issues in the cups. I reordered it in a 55.
    The straps are fully adjustable and the clip on the band is metal. It is fairly similar in the cups to all my custom bras, however, I do gape on my smaller side a little? Comparing directly to my bras, the cup comes up higher, and seems to have more depth at the base of the cup. I do not get the same cakes on a plate look as I do in my bras, but my boobs still look good. I suppose this would work in my favour should I be pre menstrual on hols again! Over all it is by far the nicest bikini I have owned. It will be very comfortable, yet stable. The bottoms are alright. same fabric and well made. I did find the adjustable ties too short, esp to make a nice bow and not just have a short bit of string poking out! My solution has been to pull out the yellow strings, sow onto the blue, stiching is hidden under the bit where the strings thread through pants. I now have nice long strings to tie into a pretty bow, I can also wear the strings higher know, which is much more flattering

    Alrighty folks, I think I can finally review this bra (and matching briefs) after having had the opportunity to wear it a couple times. My apologies for taking forever to review! I moved at the end of February, so I was pretty busy, and of course it's quite the adjustment to get settled in a new place (and living with a partner for the first time too!).

    About me: 26FF ish, narrow and tall roots, dense, evenly full/functionally FOT.

    First of all, I love the look of this bra. The lace appears a bit more peachy coloured to me than in the stock photos on the website, and this ... is complemented by a beautiful mauve lace trim along the top edge of the cup and the front of the straps. It's a two-seamed, three part halfcup, with 3x3 hooks and eyes.

    As for the fit, it pretty much fits! I ordered the 55K with wires from 55J, 1cm depth added near the wire, straps moved in 1cm, and gore overlapping. Honestly, it's hard to say which of these were completed, except the wire swap, which is clearly the same width and length as the other 55J wires. The gore does seem to be overlapped as well, but that one I was less concerned about. The gore is slightly taller than the standard plunge, and the cups have decent coverage. They're perhaps a little tall, but it works for my shape. My main concern was the cup width and depth near the wire, and those are both acceptable for me. I don't think there's quite enough room for my breasts to settle completely to the bottom, but it's not uncomfortable and doesn't crease the cup for me. My only other experience with a Comexim 3HC was when I tried one on in person at the now-defunct Bra Obsessed in St. Thomas, Ontario, and I remember it being both too small and far too shallow for me, so I was quite nervous about trying another one, but I'm a sucker for sweet, light-coloured halfcups (my first downfall was the 60FF - Ewa Michalak » Chp Marcepanowa Magnolia (694) ), and luckily this turned out well enough for me. My only other qualm is that the band is quite small and snug. It really feels like I'm strapped in when I close the band, and if I wear it for too long while sitting, it really starts to dig in along the bottom of the band and the wires. I hope it will eventually relax a little bit, but for now it's tolerable for up to a few hours at a time.

    It gives me quite a different shape than the Comexim plunges which I find to be very uplifting and give me a very slight peaked appearance. The halfcup is still uplifting, but it's much more rounded, and gives a more minimized appearance. It also makes my chest look slightly wider from the front than the plunge silhouette.

    Lastly, I took a gamble and ordered the Elise briefs, and I'm thrilled to report that they work for me! They're full-coverage, low-rise briefs, made with sheer mesh at the back. (I have lots more photos on the full review page!). The Small was once again the correct size choice for me, despite the fullness of my bum.

    Overall, I'm pretty happy with this set! I hope this will help some folks out there who are considering it.

    Oh man, I apologize for taking so long to start these reviews! I'm moving at the end of the month, so things are a little hectic right now. Anyways, I've had the opportunity to wear this bra a couple times now, so let's get into it. Luckily, it's the standard cut, so there's not a whole lot of weirdness going on (we'll save that for my new Basic lol)

    About me: 26FF ish, dense tissue, narrow and tall roots, evenly full/functionally FOT.

    PS!! Click on the link for this bra's info for all my pictures.

    I believe this is the standard cut of Scottie in 55J. Four rows of hooks which ... is nice. It's a tad snug, as you can see by the measurements, but is relatively comfortable after a couple hours' wear. The band is at risk of becoming too tight after several hours, depending on my activity level. If I'm sitting on the couch all day, it's uncomfortable, but if I'm up and moving around, it's fine. The wires are a great width and the gore is a good width and height for me. The cups are a perfect volume, although the padding/fabric is a little thicker and stiffer than my other Comexims, so it gives a slightly more peaked appearance than my others (excluding my new Basic lol). I'm almost positive the shape will soften up over time. I mentioned this to marilynne today, but we have a hunch that the newer Comexim styles are cut slightly different than the old-school styles. I definitely feel like my Scottie is more balconette-style than true plunge style like my old Basic. The newer ones seem to have a slightly higher gore and a straighter neckline than my old Basic.

    The briefs: Size Small. I suppose they're similar to like a boyshort cut, but a bit less coverage. My butt is definitely bottom-heavy, and the elastic cuts right through the middle of my cheeks, horizontally. It's an awful look lmao. The size is right, but not the shape. I'm keeping them because I aspire to someday make them into a thong style, which I've never done before, but even if I mess them up it's no worse than the state they're in right now. So yeah!

    TL;DR: Band is a little snug, cups fit well, a tad pointy, feels more like a balconette than a true plunge. The briefs are cut like boyshorts, which doesn't work for me.

      Thanks for the review! I'm really wondering why they changed the cuts. I LOVE my "vintage" plunges, I'll be so sad when they wear out and I can't replace them 😢.
      I'm sorry the bottoms didn't work :(. I have a bottom-heavy butt too, I've ordered all of my comexim bottoms as thongs and they work like a champ. Good luck altering the bottons into a thong!

    • 2

      This bra seems to be popular here lately, lol! I adore my Scottie. It's starting to pile a little bit after a year of occassional wear, but nothing that a clothes shaver can't save.

      I wonder if the difference you're perceiving is that they have been doing a classic plunge instead of their deep plunge. They used to differentiate in their listings between the regular plunge vs deep plunge. The deep plunge was definitely plungy-er in the past compared to this.

      Anyways, it looks great on you! Too bad the bottoms cut in, but good luck converting them!

    • 2

      I think this may be the kind of deep plunge line I was thinking of: https://www.bratabase.com/browse/comexim/ginger-plunge-bra-365/

    • 2

      ...although most of the plunges I just looked at had the same rough gore height of 2.7-2.9 in that size range, so maybe I'm dreaming...

    • 5

      Wilderness1 You're totally right in that the Ginger is the "deep plunge" cut, but the deep plunges also tend to run shallower (see also the Rita, which comes standard as a deep plunge). Apparently I'm losing my marbles because I just double checked and the gore height on my old Basic (which feels more "plungey") and my Scottie are identical at 2.8". BUT, I just checked the cup height, and in the middle of the cups on each, my old Basic is 0.5" taller than my Scottie, and 0.6" taller than my Yellow Birds! So perhaps it's that the cup height on the standard cut has been lowered, which is giving me the "balconette" vibes on this. Iiiiiiinteresting findings here.

    • 6

      I think that this one looks great on you! I think that Comexim plunges have always been a little more balconette style except for the deep plunge styles, but I did notice that the cup height of my Scottie and Queen of Hearts are lower than the Jade was. None of them had cup modifications. My Ingrid has a lot of modifications and my Hot Chocolate has added depth (and lower gore) so between the two, I have no idea how much of the cup height is affected. My Anna Pardal definitely has alterations as it’s a Sophisticate Balconette cut which actually looks more like a plunge. Funny how the Sophisticate Balconette looks like a plunge and the classic plunge looks like a balconette.

      Definitely food for thought though.

      sherrach898 Ive just ordered a Comexim Rita and after reading your comment about it coming up shallow, I feel a lot less confident about ordering it now lol 😅 Oops.

    • 2

      I'm so sorry Rozelyna! I ordered a rita too and it was atrociously shallow. The pictures should be in my bradrobe if you'd like to see the fit on me. I was about a 28G at the time and ordered a 60K, so a bit smaller than you. I'm narrow, projected, center full and FOT. It was slightly minimizing, I had a bit of quadding along the cup's edge and the wires were a good inch below my IMF.

    • 1

      I have the new Dalia which according to Joanne (and confirmed when I received it) is a lower gore style. I love it. It doesn't fit too differently than the regular plunge except that the gore is lower and there is a bit more cleavage. According to Joanne, the Suzanne is the same low gore style.

      You could cite these models if you're looking for lower gores marilynne ?

    • 2

      This looks so good on you sherrach898 !! So many Scottie adventures lately tempting me to order one! It's been on my wishlist forever. I'm thinking I might try it in a 3HC....

    • 2

      marilynne I think I’m going to have the same issue as you did, with it being pushed below my IMF. I really need a lot of immediate projection! I really wish I’d searched the Rita up on here and seen your review/pictures before I ordered it (especially because I made sure to check all the other bras I considered ordering!). I would’ve asked for an extra 2cm depth at the bottom wire. I must’ve just been blinded by its prettiness lol.

    • 2

      @rozeylena It happens to the best of us, lol. But they hardly ever actually add depth to the bottom wire, I asked them to add 2cm and they didn't, it seems like they stopped doing the harder alterations that require the material to be cut differently (straps moved in, depth added, reduced cup height).

    60J

    Fits

    My stats for reference:

    5'3, 28G.5, FOT, tall and narrow roots, center full, projected, average to high set.

    Look:
    This bra is gorgeous, It reminds me of those tightrope dancers at the circus. The purple is a little bit lighter than in the photos. It does have a pretty large bow on the center gore, which I usually don't like, but it seems to fit this bra well. The straps have a ribbon like trim on top, which helps to get the adjusters to stay put. It does not pass the "white t-shirt test". Like most Comexim plunges, it gives a very projected and high-set shape.

    Fit:
    I'd say it fits slightly ... large, like a UK 28G.5 which is perfect for me. The band is nice and snug, but not too tight. The gore is pretty low, meaning I could easily get "buttcrack" or "pornstar" cleavage with chicken cutlets. The straps are on the thinner side, which may not be your cup of tea. The cups are super tall, as usual with comexim plunges. I'm FOT with tall roots and I almost feel like I'm swimming in them. The straps also seem a bit short, I'm only 5'3 and slightly high set, I almost have the straps adjusted to the longest setting. There's about 2" of wiggle room for me, so this bra may not work for those who are tall or low set.

    OH MY. This is just stunning. Really. The fit is spot on compared to my other 60HH half cups. I have nothing new and earth shattering to say about it, there's nothing strange or unique about how it fits... the copper ribbon really doesn't close off the tops of the cups, at least in the 3HC pattern. I'm in love. Narrow and projected as per Comexim standards. Full review on the blog!

    Used to fit

    I nervously asked Comexim to basically completely customize this top for me and they went above and beyond. I had it made in the 3HC pattern with straps moved in 2cm and made to be convertible. Anna threw in the bottoms for me. I'm in love with this company. I really cannot say enough about Comexim and I wish they'd get their communication issues straightened out because from my experience there is very little they aren't willing to do for their customers. This is wonderfully narrow and supportive, and the convertible straps take the sting out of being unable to find a good halter bikini top. It feels like it was made for me, probably because it pretty much was! The 3HC cut is my jam, seriously. Full review on my blog!

      The faux halter look combined with the 3HC looks so much nicer than the standard plunge version of this bikini. It looks great on you too.

    Am I the first to review the half cup cut? When these two bras were releasead, I loved the colors and aesthetics of Sonia better than Victoria. But now having tried both, I like the fit of Victoria better. It's a better technical fit. It helps it's my correct size lol. I thought it was a single seam half cup (Anna even said so) but mine has 2 seams. Maybe mine is mutant, but I don't care, it fits great.

      Do it! I'd say do it as a half cup. It fits me so similar to the EM CH/P half cups, I think it would work for you like that.

  19. Moulin Rouge 3hc Longline

    60K

    Fits

    After my fail with the 65G - Ewa Michalak » Sm Czarna Mgiełka (481), I really wanted to get a sheer black bra that fits, so I custom-ordered this Moulin Rouge 3HC as I've had success with Comexim's unlined 3HC before. I also had it made in a long line as I've wanted to try one for a long time. I've also put in a request to have a narrow and overlapped gore.

    My usual UK size is 28FF/G, and my shape is projected, FOT, narrow and tall roots, super close-set, soft and self-supporting.

    I don't think I'll buy another long line bra again because I'm so clumsy ... and there are so many (5) hooks on this bra. The band feels snug even though it measures 29" stretched.

    The cups are narrow, projected and open on top. My only minor complaint is that it's slightly too shallow near the centre, and with how close-set I am, the gore shifts to one side a little.

    The bra is simple and sexy, and I'm pleased with the quality and fit. I kind of regret having it made in a long line because it could've been a great summer bra with the thin mesh but the longer band is going to make the heat feel worse.

      It looks great on you! Do you find that the longline makes it feel more supportive than a regular bra, or is it about the same?

    • 2

      Okay, I'm so curious about these longline bras! And I go back and forth with the bras I want to order - I'm like, should I request it longline and just regular? Lol. It's a tough call but I think I'm going to request a longline of a bra that I already have, so I can compare them.

      I'm worried too about connecting the hooks in the back, it will take extra time, but also I'm wondering if it will give me better posture/back support.

      I could just do posture exercises, but I thought a longline bra would make me stand up straight. Lol.

    • 1

      ComeAtMe_Bra BraOdyssey I tried wearing the bra all day and can report back now! The band hugs my ribcage nicely, is supportive and prevents slouching but only in the mid-back. It doesn't really help with upper back/ shoulder posture. But it's comfortable and surprisingly does not feel too constricting in the summer heat.
      Compared to a regular bra, the level of support and lift isn't really different. But it does feel more stable and moves less. Hope this is helpful!

    Yay finally received my Comexim and it’s fantastic. Another Comexim win! I ordered it directly from Comexim on April 3rd, they shipped it out on April 13th, and I received it on May 28th LOL. Looong wait could have something by to do with Canada post issues?

    I looove this bra! It is beautiful, fits well, and is very comfortable. I wore it for a day while doing errands and other physical activities and nothing budged. I even forgot I was wearing it.

    I ordered with straps moved in 1cm but no other alterations. The gore came overlapped, I’m guessing they do this with all orders now. The ... cups are wider and slightly more shallow than my other 3HC but still has decent immediate projection. The band is a bit too snug for me but I’m sure it will stretch a bit and it didn’t cause me any discomfort. The band is similar to the basic plunge but the front half is covered with eyelash lace. The cups are more firm than my other 3HC but still very light.

    Holy super round shape! This bra brings everything centre and forward and uplifted for me. It gives me quite a bit of cleavage which is fine with me.

    This cost 162 zloty which works out roughly to $53 Canadian. That includes all fees and shipping. Can’t go wrong with that price!

    Overall I am very pleased with this bra and I need more Comexim 3HCs in my life haha

      wow, looks great! I agree, the price is super reasonable for us Canadian gals, esp considering the other options that we have (Victoria's secret?), a.k.a., just matrix sizes.

      someone just reviewed her comexim order on reddit and she said she got her bras in like 3 weeks in rural NE, U.S.A. https://www.reddit.com/r/ABraThatFits/comments/nnzuz0/first_comexim_order_review_four_styles_75f_long/ Meanwhile, me - in Western Canada - still waiting, lol. Not Comexim's fault though, so I don't blame them.

      wow, that's amazing, only one small alteration (move in straps 1 cm) and you got a perfect fit. Sweet!

    • 1

      Thanks BraOdyssey :) hey when did you place your order? Yeah I don’t think it’s comexims fault, probably something to do with the postal service. The last 3HC I asked for lowered cups but I really don’t need it (I’m not even sure if they did that alteration anyway lol)
      Good luck with yours!

    • 1

      okay, I think it is total "Canada Post" issue b.c.: my last order of Comexim bras from the states took a long time, it was stuck (clearing customs, I believe?) at the Toronto airport clearing point for like a week, so...not exactly Comexim's fault at all.

      I imagine I will probably get it this week? I'm not sure. I'm further west than you. So, I imagine it takes a little longer to get to me. Mine was shipped Apr 14.

    • 1

      yeah, looks good. they have so many bras available in this style.

      I don't know if you need to lower the cup at all, it looks good the way it is?

      margesimpson I tried the mimi and hera after this one and found both way too shallow. I have no idea why the beauty just fits? some people find theirs shallow? Perhaps variations in making? I am quite projected ( 6 inch difference in standing and leaning ) very close set, centre full and full on top. If shape makes a difference?

    • 1

      souxies it really does just fit! I’m FOB but also centre full and close set. Have you tried any comexim plunges?

    • 2

      margesimpson Yes, I have a Piume Notte. Its pretty much spot on fit wise with no alterations. I just have a tiny strap gap on my less top full breast. Its a stunning, solid and quality bra. I am 5’1 though and like scoop neck tops ect which is why I prefer the 3hc cut. Although, under a high neck the Piume is amazing.

    • 2

      Just to add, it creases a bit under my bigger breast but it washes out!

    • 2

      souxies oh nice. The Plume Notte is gorgeous! If I ever figure out the plunge size/alterations for myself I would definitely get that one
