After about a year of wondering whether or not I should try Comexim, I went ahead and placed an order. My size is outside of what they list on their website, but they were willing to make it for me anyway. I ordered Sonia in a three-part half cup, size 85K, with the straps moved in 2cm and cookie pockets added to the insides of the cups. The size was a guess, but it appears I guessed right!
The bra is, first of all, absolutely gorgeous - pictures simply do not do it justice. The peachy-pink of the cups, overlaid with the silver lace, is just beautiful. The straps ...are a different color - a nice darker tan - and the gore and straps are decorated with bows made up of two ribbons, one in each color. The pink is too dark to be a real nude on me, but it still blends close enough that it's not very visible under a thin shirt. The way the seaming is done on the cups is virtually invisible under a thin shirt. I find it much less noticeable than the seams on my EMs.
The bra is also very, very comfortable. The straps are fully adjustable, which isn't something I need but is nice just the same, and they are not too far apart for me. The padding of the bra itself is actually thinner than I had expected, which is nice - it's already getting to be too warm for padded bras where I live, so it's nice to know I can actually wear this bra right now. Also, because the padding is thinner, I don't get bunching around the armpit area, like happens with my EMs.
As for the fit...it actually fits me pretty well! Due to my shape - very projected, narrow, very short roots, lots of bottom fullness - I have a tricky time getting a good fit in most bras. The gore doesn't tack completely, but Comexim has very soft wires so I was expecting that to be the case; if I press it down I do not get any quadding. There is plenty of projection at the wire (which I need), and a good amount of space in the center (which I also need). The cups are just a hair too tall, especially towards the center on my smaller size, but I adjusted the straps and stuck a pair of cookies in from one of my EMs, which makes up almost all of the difference - the pictures are before I adjusted the straps. Under a shirt there's only a tiny bit of a crease on my smaller size where the cup sticks up just a tiny bit too much. The wires are shorter than the channels, so I adjusted them so that the empty space is in the gore which helps it sit a bit more closely. The band runs just slightly less than true to size; I went with 85 instead of 80 and it measures just under 38" stretched. The wires are a good width for me, and while the wings measure as being high, they don't poke my armpits at all.
I will absolutely be ordering from Comexim again. I love EM, and CHP is amazing for me, but 3HC works almost as well, costs a lot less, and I can get customizations done on it for free. That right there makes it a winner for me, and I am very pleased with this. I think if I order a 3HC with a lowered gore and overlapping wires, that'll solve the few small fit issues I have with this bra. Read more 500 more words
I love this bra! The fit is perfect and it's so pretty and comfortable.
I am more used to unlined bras, and before that, too-shallow molded foam ones. The foam lining of this one makes for OMG BOOBS in tight t-shirts. This is different from the larger size ranges of Comexim half-cups which people report as being more minimizing.
I will definitely wear it a lot with suits, button-up collared shirts, and when I have ouchy PMS boobs that need foam protection. Who knows, maybe I'll eventually come around to the "boobs" look, because this bra looks and feels really nice. I already wore it under a baggy shirt ...for some weekend errands and felt really good in it.
The coloring is more peach than pink. Compared to most of my brightly colored bras, this one will work as a nude.
Boob twins, you need this bra. Ordering from Poland is not as intimidating or expensive as one would think. In this size range, the scaling is pretty good, so there is not a big chance that a bra will be an epic fail because of a need for a ton of custom alterations. Read more 84 more words
This is a very beautiful bra! I got it with straps moved in, reduced cup and overlapping wires at the gore.
I've read that the two seamed Comexim half cups run small on some and I would say that this is true for me. It is not super small tho, but the gore does not sit flat it stands out about 1 cm from my chest wall.
I will wear it anyways since it gives an amazing cleavage and it blends with my skin tone under white.
Brand-spanking new style for Comexim!! I had to add the model, hope I didn't screw it up. Very beautiful (what Comexim isn't). Wider than their plunges, runs a cup size small, I don't find it shallow at all. In the future, I'd order half cups with straps moved in.
With a few modifications, this bra fits me well. While waiting for this custom order to be made, I got a 60L - Comexim » Ingrid Half Cup which should be a sister size, but was too small on me, so I was pleasantly surprised that this bra actually fit. However, the cups are WAY too wide at 16.5cm, versus the 14.7cm wide cups on the Ingrid. I found this difference bizarre, considering I had sized down, not up in the band, and it makes sense that someone with a narrower rib cage would need narrower, not wider cups. After a few hours of disappointment, ...I decided to try to bend the wires narrower, which was a success! The wires are still not as narrow as I'd like, but are acceptable. I asked for the straps to be moved in 2cm, but they still are way too wide and in my armpits--next time I'll have to request 3cm. I gambled on requesting a 55 band, because I'm really in between a 55 and 60, but I'm glad I did--the band seems very stretchy, and while it measures 55cm exactly, it stretches to 67cm--a huge difference.
While the shape of the 3HC holds my soft tissue in better than the Comexim plunges I've tried to date, I'm not sure yet if I love it. Due to the wider, longer wires and taller wings it just feels like there is a lot more bra going on, a feeling I don't prefer. Also, my breasts are pushed out to the sides, making my frame look wider. I think I'll have to wear it a bit to decide how much I like the style, and if I were to re-order I would try to make sure I got narrower cups and reduced wing height.
I love the color scheme of this bra, and it almost works for nude on me. I was a bit disappointment that the lace didn't extend to the band as it does on some models here on Bratabase, don't know if Comexim changed the design at some point or just got lazy on mine. Its a small thing, but a really nice touch. While I like the peach and gray theme, I would prefer if the back and straps were all one color so that it could read as nude. I realize I'm nitpicking here--overall its a beautiful bra!
I can see why everyone loves Comexim bras! This is the third one I've tried and the second that fits. It's a little shallower than I usually need, but it makes up for that with cup height. The result is great lift, without too much projection. It reminds me a lot of Freya Patsy and Kiyoko, but without the spilling over I'd get from them. I don't think my boobs have ever looked this perky before. Ever.
I know a lot of people recommend sizing up for Comexim Half Cups, but I didn't find it necessary with this one. The vertical seams are pretty low profile, and even with the lace cups, it disappears nicely under most of my shirts. It's also very soft and comfy. I kinda never want to take this bra off.
When I first receive this I was not that impressed with it. My bra doesn't have the lace on the band and one of the seems had some loose stitches. I also find it looks better on a person then just in a box. I'll asked for an overlapping gore, and it only over laps at the tips. I think I ask for shorter, narrower and overlapping gore next time. The first time I put it on it was gaping like crazy and I thought this is not going to work. Then after S and S and pulling the wires into the right place I was like WOW ...it works. The gore sits slight on my breast but that is what happen when there is no space. Through out the day I noticed it shifting and becoming more gappy. So I bent the wires to match the curve of my ribcage also making the cups deeper and narrower and it now stays in place much better. I actually have cakes on a plate cleavage in this bra which is hard to come by due to being splayed and lack of in fullness. I feel like the cups are compressing me a little but if I went up size the cups would be too tall. I need more immediate depth not more over projection. Comexim 3HC work for narrow, functionally FOB, and shallow tall roots but they are not perfect. My Papillon 3HC I find fits a little better because the padding a little thinner. I need something shaped more like an EM CHP but without the hard, ouchy wires. Read more 161 more words
After trying this bra in a plunge in 65G and it being too small in both the band and the cup, I saw a listing for the half cup model in 75G. Knowing that Comexim half cups generally require you to go up a cup and that based on the fit up the plunge I would need 2 cups larger for the half cup. The band on this does run a bit small which is why I took a chance on going 2 band sizes up. I love this bra and was so upset by my plunge that I got first not fitting, I ...do plan to order another Sonia since I think I will want to wear this frequently and it should work decently as a nude alternative. If I do order another one I will probably get a 70H (the 70 to help increase the lifespan of the band) in the half cup and if I try a plunge again I will try 70G. I would also request the straps moved in as they are a bit too wideset, although it might not be as much of an issue in a smaller band.
On another note, I had not yet sold the panties I had got with the 65G, I mistakenly ordered a small instead of a medium. I decided to hang on to them since the 75G fits and while being a bit snug they aren't uncomfortable, a medium would probably be a better fit but the small will work.
I was told prior to swapping for this bra that some stitching was missing along the band. I have restitched those areas and the band fits better since it was just a bit big.
I've also worn this under some light colored fitted shirts and I can't really notice the bra through the shirt so it is exactly what I had hoped for, a very pretty nude alternative. Now I'm regretting not adding another Sonia to my most recent Comexim order. I did order the Elena as a 2 seam half cup and am hoping it works out as good as the Sonia.
This is probably my favorite bra, and I need to order another because I always want to wear this one, it's so pretty and such a good fit, I love it.
Update, after trying several sizes of 3HC I can confidently say that this bra is incorrectly sized. I tried ordering in a sister size 65HH since I usually wear a 65 band they were a bit too big in the cup and the band was quite small. I placed another order and got a 70G, which fits and I also swapped for a 65H which is a perfect fit. Read more 359 more words
This morning I awoke with pain under both arms. Yesterday, I wore a too narrow (5.5") Ewa Michalak bra for two hours. Today, this wider (6") Comexim arrived, and my breasts celebrated the available space. I prefer a 65 cm band, but Sonia is stretchy and comfortably wraps around and supports in a 60 cm band.
If you have close set breasts, ordering a "narrower gore" may greatly improve the fit for those with center fullness. I usually order an "overlapping gore." However, the narrower gore is narrower over a longer distance. The overlapping gore overlaps at the very top and returns to normal width more quickly. I ...may ammend my list of alterations to include "narrower gore."
At 7" tall, this 60L is .25"-.5" too tall for my very short roots. However, the bottom of the cup is almost as comfortable as my 65K Eris...almost. Sister sizing in Comexim is not as simple as it seems. Although the 65K and 60L are apparent sister sizes, one glance at Comexim's size chart reveals why the 65K fits better. Comexim designs the 60L for 94-96cm of bust circumference whereas the 65K accommodates 97-99cm of bust circumference. The 65K is larger than the 60L. My shorties are trembling in fear, "What if the cup is taller, too?" Sigh. We'll know in two weeks, because the 65K 3HC are shipping now.
My husband instantly noticed a change, "This really shows off your figure." Because I have a very curvy hourglass figure, E.M. S's lift and centering tends to narrow my upper body. The Comexim 3HC distributes my breasts in even roundless across my chest. This widens my upper torso creating greater contrast between my shoulders and 25" waist. I am very fond of the shape Comexim 3HCs create. Thank you disneymom !
I adore the look of the Sonia. It's feminine, understated, elegant but not without a hint of sexiness. The Sonia was my favorite in appearance of the three Comexims I purchased together from Breakout Bras at the same time. I love the color scheme which isn't at all boring but also doesn't show through fabrics. Plus with my pink undertones and freckles - the pinky/peach cups and beigey brownish straps are practically better than a nude for me.
I also LOVE the shape this bra gives - it's such a gorgeous rounded shape and in this size where the cups are too small for ...me to wear out of the house, I'm tempted to keep it since I get that locked in place perfectly round, but separate, "cakes on a plate" look. I probably would have tried to make it work but the cups being too small made the wires sit on breast tissue and the gore not tack properly, so I had to wear the straps very tight to keep everything in place, which was very painful. Still, check out the pictures, the bra fits like a lingerie model's (meaning it's sooo pretty on but when you look closer you realize it doesn't fit right at all, but still, soo *pretty* that you want to buy it even though you know it will never look like that on you)
Despite being labeled as a 'padded balcony' instead of a padded half cup like the 65N - Comexim » Burgundy Half Cup (357) the two bras seemed to be nearly identical in cut, or they did the way they fit me! At least to my untrained eye the Sonia looked like and had a lot of the same problems as the Burgundy Half Cup. The only differences I saw were: the burgundy was a better fit because the cups were a size bigger, but the Sonia looked better under clothing despite fitting substantially "worse" and being less comfortable. The Sonia's seams were flatter and didn't show as much under clothing, and the shape was more frozen in place so the quadding was more aesthetically pleasing than in the burgundy (I think this is a cup size thing too). Also, the cups were small enough on me that the wrinkling and slight gap I got on the top outside of the cups in the Burgundy is mostly filled in in the Sonia - but you can still see some slight wrinkling and gaping there, and I'm certain if there was more depth in the cups so the boob could settle properly, you'd see those same fitting issues; without alterations it would seem that this style has cups that are too tall and wires that are too wide for me and my center fullness.
I really love this bra and I wish I could keep it. Now I've got to do research and figure out if there are other models or alterations that I can get (or perhaps try the Ewa Michalak CHP or CH instead, though those straps are supposed to be even farther apart!) because I'd really love to have a padded half cup (or balcony?) like this one, I just need to find a design that will work with my shape!
