This is my first Comexim bra, and I am definitely ordering more despite not a perfect fit. I special ordered it via email using the comexim.pl website email contact . I had a bit of gamble with the size , but not bad guess overall. My snug underbust measure is 84 cm ~33" and overbust measure is ~115 cm (45") , but that really hard to measure as I have very pendulous projected breast, which kind of rather balanced not predominantly fuller on bottom nor on top. I breastfeed for 3 yr combined and they are huge and saggy.
Currently my ...best fitting UK bra is Panache tango 34K , which gives me good support, but the wires too wide and poked me underarm.( 32KK would be better, but don't exists) . Right now my best fitting bra is a 75K (34K) Ewa Michalak BM bra, which is stretchy lace. I also have relatively good fitting with 75L (34L) Ewa Michalak S bra , which is a padded balconette.
This comexim plunge 75N is padded, and the fit is comparable to my Ewa S 75L, but there are some differences: 1. Band: The band is less stretchy than my EM S style , probably comparable to my EM Bm 75 band. Definitely closer to 32 on Panache tango than a 34.
2. Cupsize: Bratabase sizes my 34K panache tango and my Ewa BM 75K as a :15. This is sized :14 by bratabase and yes it is slightly smaller than those, but I would not say it is a full cupsize. It also hard to tell, as this is a plunge, so more breast tissue is on display , and I am not used to that as I have not had a plunge bra for a decade. Also my boobs fluctuate a good half size through my cycle, and right now I am experiencing the bigger boob days https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />
3. Gore: the gore doesn't tack and this is not a problem for those 3 bras, and it is almost never a problem for me. However, it doesn't really bothers me. I think this is somehow related to the fact that this is a plunge and bring things out and inward and on display, and the whole gore is under the whole bra display https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />
4: Straps: this is an unaltered Comexim, and I have narrow shoulders and usually feel that bra straps are too wide( all of those 3 mention bra have this issue) ,but this is not a problem here . I may would benefit moving the straps in a little bit, but not a big deal.
5. Underwire: It definitely delivers what is promises. The wires are narrower AND shorter that any bra I ever tried on at this size range. First time ever zero poking underarm. Initially I tried Ewa bras beacuse I read their wire is narrower than UK brand , which is true , but only marginally. I check the measurements, and while some of my Ewa bra has exact same cup / wire width, they still pokes me a bit. This one doesn't because the wire like 5 cm (2") shorter than the Ewa bras wires, which mean they do not go up into my armpit.
6. Support/ placement: I am amazed how high my boob peak is in this bra. The first time in my life my boob peak is actually coincide with the clothes breast placement. Just WOW. I have the Urkye Minimal shirt which was ok fit with my EM bras, but the button pulled a bit and I blamed the shirt, almost returned it. With this bra, those button shirt became perfect fit. This was a huge epiphany for me , as maybe some ill fitting clothes even from busty retailers were ill-fitting because the bra was not as good fit as it could have been.
7: Material/ construction/ value: I would say it is good quality bra, but not OMG so soft and beautiful. I would say the material in my Ewa bras are softer/ fancier looking, but those significantly more expensive as well. Comexim charged me for overseas shipping only 20 plz , and do not charges extra for the extreme size like mine and I was not even on the normal size chart! This bra was 120Plz+ shipping, so it come out total for $35USD. Comexim bras range from 100 Plz ( sale ) to 160 plz( longline!). Including North American shipping that is USD$30-$45, which is a bargain for this fit. Ewa charges 45 plz for shipping + charge for paypal , and even the sale bras start at 150 Plz in my size and range upto 240Plz and some extreme style even more than that. At the end of the day an Ewa bra cost me USD $50-70, which is same as ordering a UK bra from bravissimo.
Overall, I am very happy that I ordered this bra , and I am going to order another comexim right away, but probably I'll go a cupsize up and get a 75O and will try the balconette style. It is good to have a plunge bra for special occasions, but I prefer the modesty and support of the balconette style. Read more 829 more words
You know how you need a really good white bra...but don't want just any old plain one? Well I get the best of both worlds of a gorgeous, anything but basic bra with Comexim Snow. I am going through a cup growth and noticed that my 70 bands aren't as tight as I need and wear out too quickly. On top of that the cups are just a tad small. I decided to go from a 70N to a 65O. This was over all not completely off.
The band is stretchy enough to feel firm-ish, but I feel like I could size down, this is good because I ...expect other bands not to be as stretchy, so I will stick with 65. The look of it is just beautiful. It's my kind of basic, floral white lace over a white base. Thick white straps with embroidered piping on them. The band is plain white no lace which provides smoothing. The look is topped off with a sheer lace only gore and a simple white bow with the ribbon tassels accented with a single clear bead.
The fit is so comfy especially with the cookie pockets, which I add solely for softness. Although I need about a cup up (65P) due to quads I will still wear this bra with no hesitation, until I order a new one. I feel like I need 5 more in various shades of brown white and black lol.
I got straps moved in 3cm, cups reduced, gore narrowed, overlapping, and reduced to 6.5cm/2.5in, cookie pockets. Read more 150 more words

This is an unaltered Comexim Plunge bra. It is a gorgeous white with white lace cups. If it wasn't too big, I would not be selling it. I will be ordering another in my correct size, because it is so pretty for a white bra.
Well, my first and VERY long-awaited Comexim!!! I ordered this directly from the Comexim website and it took over a month to be delivered! I was hoping it would be well worth the wait, but if I'm being honest, I have to say I'm a bit disappointed https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />
I could tell while I was taking the measurements that this wouldn't be a perfect fit. It's a bit awkward and gives me a horrible shape under tight shirts. I'm not quite filling out the bottom of the cups, there doesn't seem to be enough immediate projection at the base of the cup causing me ...to have "orange in a glass." But I'm spilling over the top and getting quad boob, esp when I "scoop n swoop!" The width of the cup is just a teensy tiny bit too narrow for me. And I feel like I'm being "minimized" in this bra. It's hard to see in pics holding the camera. But standing normal with my arms down by my side, it's a lot easier to see.
I asked for 3 different alterations, but I don't think she made them right...maybe the translation was confusing? I asked for 3 hooks instead of 2, I got that. I also asked for the gore to be lowered but it measures just about 3" so I don't think it was (could be, but it seems a bit too tall than what I asked for) and I asked for the straps to be taken in a tad but I don't know if that was done or not either. Despite all that, the gore was actually not as uncomfortable as I suspected it would be. The wing height is perfect also. And what I love the MOST about the bra is the tightness of the band! It's perfect for my 26" underbust. The band measured 20" and stretched to only 27.5", so this is one of the very few bras I've ever been able to wear on the first set of hooks! And I had no problem getting it on. Unfortunately, the cups don't seem to fit me as well as the band does. I got a very unflattering, weird, pointy/quad-boob look under a tight shirt. I think she may have made the cups reduced on my bra, but I have nothing to compare it to so I'm not completely sure.
The bra itself is extremely lightweight and feels, I don't wanna say "cheaply made" but not nearly as sturdy, nor does it seem as high quality as Ewa Michalak. It feels like a light piece of foam, but I guess that can be a good thing, esp in the summer when it's too hot for heavy, bulky bras. The white floral print is really pretty, and I love the cute added details on the gore, with the white satin bow and crystal beads. Overall, it was extremely comfy and felt supportive in the band. I think I just need to figure out my proper cup size in this brand. I think I might need a 60J instead. Read more 409 more words
Brand new: I usually steer clear of white bras, but I liked the shape of this one in the pics. I wasn't wrong; it's lovely. I finally get cleavage in a bra that fits so much better than the Deco, and it's a wonderful everyday kind of bra. It may be a cup too small, but I will update after the break-in phase. The band is VERY tight, but that is my preference, and again, I will update after the break-in. 3-part lined cup, fully adjustable straps, 3 hooks. Seems well made, comfy, wasn't expensive (comparatively speaking) since I ordered direct. A tiny bit larger in the cup than the Jasmine 2 in 75HH for some reason, but the band is the same. Update: The cup IS too small, by probably 2 sizes. The band did relax considerably after wearing a couple of times. Wears comfortably and seems well made.
