  1. 1. I ordered Tropical Garden in 65P with reduced cups, straps moved in 3cm, gore reduced to 6cm, narrowed, and overlapping; 3x4 hooks, cookie pockets, and I requested all over mesh no black section.
    Appearance: it is simply gorgeous the colors are rich without being overpowering and I love how everything else is black because it creates a balanced look. I did notice that the the cookie pockets are a silky smooth material instead of the soft cotton, but I don't mind because the cups inside and out are soft.
    Fit: it fits almost perfectly, the band is perfect on the first set of hooks, the gore lays flat, and ... the cup height is perfect. My only note to self is that there is 3mm of quad near the gore, so I could go up another size, but I honestly don't mind I am very center full and love low gores so I expect it. My cycle is coming soon so we'll see if it goes down, but the cup fits perfectly until it gets to my fullest point. I love this bra and plan to wear it often.

    I also got the matching panties in the szorty-stringi style, which is supposed to be like the picture. They are kind of similar, but they fit nicely against my upside down 💙 shaped bum instead of loosely. I have gained 2" to my hips so I will start ordering a XL in figi and szorty for my 44" hips (39-40" hip bone) and I will also ask for high waisted bottoms.

      I had no idea it is possible to request something like "all over mesh no black section" as an alteration! Looks amazing!

      Lenaxo I saw just one pic of a frontal from years ago where a bra reviewer had it. She didn't leave a review and there was only 2 pics of the bra in that size and nobody reviewed so I don't know who it was and how it came to be that way, so I took a shot and requested it.

      MissAponii That proves it never hurts to ask, very happy for you :)

    Didn't fit

    Man, this bra would be awesome if I hadn't ordered it with reduced cups. I've had slight fit issues with other Comexims, and I thought maybe it was the cups being too tall; I was wrong. the wire cuts into the sides of my breasts like crazy, making it unwearable. I also ordered this with narrowed straps (4 cm) and I think that has something to do with the weird fit, as well; perhaps 4cm is too much? I wish it was easier to get these ordered so I could figure out what works best!

    • I haven't ordered any altered Comexim bras myself (yet), but on some blog reviews I have read, the ladies had the straps moved in 2cm and were happy with that.

    • The wait for alterations is difficult. I found Tropical Garden shorter than several other models.

    • Love4Pollinators I was going to say the same- the tropical garden is shorter than other styles.

    • I love that bra. Sorry it didn't fit. I wish I tried it knowing that it's shorter than the others.

    70F

    Fits

    I got this one together with 70F - Comexim » Lorraine Biustonosz (316) . Gives nice rounded shape, also small cleavage. Although I need 1 extra set of eyes, as the band is just tiny bit too tight - nothing major. Cups fit really well as all my comexims in 70F - no quadding and just tiny bit of gapping on the smaller side. Not sure if I will keep it as I have plenty of dark bras, but will wait for new EM and Comexim colecctions and then Ill decide : )

  4. My bra was ordered with special requests: (1) reduced cup height (shorter cups) and (2) higher gore. The gore did not end up being as high as I normally like, unfortunately, so I do spill out of it when worn for an extended period of time. :(

    I previously had this bra in 75L - Comexim » Tropical Garden (191) , but I have recently lost some weight (and some boob volume.) Tropical Garden has been one of my all-time favorite bras aesthetically, so when my other one became too large, I immediately ordered this one in a smaller size. I knew ... it was an older style, so I didn't want to risk not ever having it again! :)

    This (and all Comexim plunges) are great if you need narrow wires, deep cups, and shorter underwires on the sides (seriously, this bra does not stab me in the underarms at all.) The strap placement is also very comfortable as well. The shape is very uplifted, front-and-center, and naturally rounded, plus it makes my soft, FoB boobs look great, which is no simple feat.

    • Just want to clarify -- you had the gore raised by nine centimeters? I've had issues with raised gores and lowered cup heights, similar to what you listed in your review here: http://www.bratabase.com/bra/dlet5/

      My assumption was to do away with the alterations altogether, but maybe the solution is even more of an alteration?

    • No, I requested my gore to measure 9 cm total, which is higher than their standard gore.

    • The combo of alterations that I request now works quite well for me (reduced cup height, gore height between 9-10 cm, and always 3x3 hooks.) I have lost some weight since I wrote the reviews for the 75M bras, so even though I could never get the formula right at that size, thankfully I've figured it out at my new size. I've also accepted that Comexim bras will never give me the "boobs of steel" feeling of support, so I only wear them on weekends or evenings when I'm less active. I think I was trying to achieve that feeling originally when I was trying to get the gore super high. I just wear other bras when I need more support (like my EM S bras or Panache Sport, even.) Hope that helps!

      Thank you so much for your feedback! My boobs are kind of all over the place right now, with some weight gain, tissue migration, and absolute inability to stop growing, so what initially worked for me with Comexim no longer does. I'm in the process now of placing an order with Anna again, and hopefully this time will be more successful. I'm going for a couple different sizes and no alterations (other than the 3 hook fastening, of course!), and keeping my boobs crossed. Thanks, again, and congrats on your weight loss -- assuming it's something for which you strove to accomplish.

    • Thanks! Yes, I have been working hard to get my weight down. Still have a bit more to go. :) Good luck! I hope your next set of bras is a success.

    Cleavage! Oh my. I hardly ever have cleavage and this is exceptional (admittedly I suspect I could go up a cup size without gaping, but this does not have quadboob), this bra brings you up front and centre! And soooo comfortable. If it weren't padded I would wear it always, but it can get a bit too warm for padded bras 'round here (45C, anyone?). Not the most expensive looking bra, but well finished and not expensive.

    65HH

    Didn't fit

    Though I haven't reviewed them on here, my current best fitting bras are @Cleo meg is 30G (with an extender-- slightly too big in cup) and @Cleo melissa in 32FF (slightly too small in cup). There's also my Bravissimo @Starburst that fits well in 28H (except that I need an extender). I consider myself a small-ish 30GG. I've been trying to figure out my Comexim size for a while, and I thought this was a good guess after trying on a Green Velvet in 70HH that was MUCH too big (at least two cups)-- as a smaller cup didn't make sense based ... on conversions I looked at.

    This slightly too small in the cup, and the wires are a little too narrow-- the just reach my rib-cage, and don't extend past at all (and I do have a small amount of breast tissue along the side that I can see is not fitting into the cups). The cups are a bit too tall. I think the size I need is a 65J with lower cups-- but it's possible that a 70HH would also work (I think Green Velvet may run large).

    Compared to other plunge bras, I found the separation between cups perfect, and the gore height nice and comfortable-- enough to make it feel supportive, but low enough that it certainly wouldn't show under most shirts. I do have some minimal quad-boob because it's slightly too small for me, but I can reduce this by loosing the straps. And I WANT TO, because this bra is very comfortable, and it's GORGEOUS and feels well made. The band is a true 30 band-- it stretches just to 30 inches, and is comfortable on the loosest hook. The fabric inside the cups is smooth and comfortable, and though the strap isn't very stretchy and is fairly tight, it feels really comfortable. The strap placement is also excellent for my fairly narrow shoulders.

    The cleavage is really intense, but I think that's because it's too small in the cup-- which is good for me, because I prefer not to have too much crazy cleavage going on. I tried on a shirt briefly, and wasn't able to see seams at all... but due to the coloration of this bra, I'm sure it will show through thin or light colored shirts.

    All in all, this bra seems to be fantastic so far, and I look forward to wearing it!

    Fits

    I requested the gore to overlap and it came that way but possibly that’s how this model is made anyways. The shape is round and lifted. The band is snug, fits my 26 back perfectly and I can start with the first/longest set of hook. The cups are shallow at the wire so I get some empty space there but other than that the fit is perfect I think. And it’s so comfortable I could sleep in it. I love comexim.

    75H

    Didn't fit

    Overall, this bra fits pretty well.

    I ordered a 75 band for my 32" ribcage as I worried the 70 would be too snug. I am using the 2nd set of hooks (out of 4 total); I think in retrospect I should have gone for the 70 (I like a snug fit). The gore tacks well and the straps are in enough so that they do not cut into my arms.

    My only issue with this bra is the wires on the sides; they are a bit lower than I prefer and some tissue does escape with movement. If these wires were just a bit taller this bra would be perfect.

    Appearance wise, this bra is beautiful. The fabric is soft and comfortable. This bra gives forward projection and 'cakes on a plate' cleavage that Polish bras are known for.

    Overall, while not a perfect fit, it's good enough.

    Didn't fit

    Mweh, so pretty but hilariously small. Once I got it out of the box I thought...oh no this is way too small. I was right...almost everything about the bra was great! (Woot the first band that fits properly on me!) Only thing I would change would be to also get crossed wires at the gore as well, but that is because my boobs are amazing close set. (only a few mm between them.) Also too shallow for me, it turns out. Next time I'll be buying a deeper bra in a 55K as that is the cup depth that I need plus the extra cup for the reduced cup height, as you lose some depth there.

    I've only noted comfort as poor, because my nips were hanging out of it, but if my boobs fit in it, it would be great!

    75F

    Fits

    I was psyched to try out the Tropical Garden. My boobs have little upper fullness so I was interested in the shorter cups on this bra.

    The band is tight (I'm using an extender) and the cups are a tad small for the size - if I press the gore down to a firm tack, I get the smallest amount of quadding. In other 75F Comexim plunges, I have more room in the cup.

    There are some great parts and some frustrating parts of my Tropical Garden bra. The appearance is awesome - I have some cleavage! And my boobs look perfectly packaged and perky! It's super cute. The gore ... is really narrow, and the cups are almost too narrow for me. The immediate depth is good for my pendulous boobs. The band stays in place and supports my girls all day long.

    What isn't so great, though, is the fabric. The mesh band scratches my skin. There's also scratchy fabric on the seams inside the cups, and on the wings. The bra doesn't feel as secure as my Basic or Chevron plunges, and definitely not as comfortable or well-constructed as my Anna Pardal plunge. There is a construction issue with the edge of the mesh - it sort of pokes through where it's sewn onto the edge of the band, and the fabric is cut jagged. I can just barely see it, but I think it makes the band itchier.

    Overall, I like this bra fine and will wear it regularly - it fits me way better than most non-Polish bras - but it's not as high quality or as comfortable as I hoped.
