So while it's mid-summer, a belated review for my (heavily discounted) Comexim bikini via BreakOutBras!
Got it in early May, but only remembered to review it when I first wore it out to swim recently.
There's still quite a few sizes available, $18 for the top and $8 for the bottoms.
It is a final sale item; so kind of a gamble, but I actually really like this bikini!
The fit is firm, well-contained and yet comfortable, the cups are kind of stretchy (despite being lined), so they conform well to the breast shape.
My regular Comexim size (70K) was not available, and I had previously been wondering whether to size up ... to 70L in Comexims.
So I tried that, both for this bikini and the 70L - Comexim » Piume Blu (CMPIUMEB), and it seems to have worked out well!
FYI, *edit: at least for my size*; the conversion BreakOutBras uses basically means that their listed 'US size' is the Comexim direct order size.
So in this case, UK 32HH - US 32L means Comexim 70L.
Despite this being unaltered, the strap placement doesn't bother me as much as I feared.
The gore is too high for me though, and kind of pokes into breast tissue. It sort of tilts/flips between my cleavage, which is a common fit issue for me.
However, that would bother me more if it was a bra intended for daily wear, rather than a bikini.
The straps are pretty wide, which I like: they're 2 cm. and quite chunky.
The underband measures kind of short unstretched, but has a LOT of give.
Cups are deep and narrow-ish, but not too rigid; so they don't poke too badly on the sides.
Hmm what else...
Oh right: the matching briefs are cute too, I got the high-waisted in L and the shorts in XL - which was a case of availability but turned out to be a great choice. Be aware though that the high waist briefs are very full-coverage in the back! Might be a plus or downside, depending on your preference. For reference, my butt/hips measure 43/44 inch / 110 cm. and my waist is 31/32-ish.
All in all, I'm very happy with this purchase! It feels like good quality swimwear that should last, though I've currently only used it once.
Almost tempted to also try the Showcase, but I don't really need it.. Unless I start a daily swimming schedule haha.
Also, this bikini + Piume Blue were a good 'diagnostic' to confirm my suspicion that for Comexim I'm kind of in-between 70K and 70L - especially when ordered directly (with my preferred alteration of straps moved in), in plunges I'd either need a 70K with added projection, or a 70L. And *definitely* a 70L (or up) in 3HC styles! My 70K Wildcat and Miss Bee-have are definitely toooo small.
