Comexim Review

Hi all!  I hope you are all doing fabulously!  I'm really excited about this review.  I've had numerous items on the back burner- including a re-review of Curvy Kate's Smoothie (I'm just waiting for a new size in a new CK style so I can review them together!), as well as my Comexim order.

I'd placed my order with Comexim via email, which is pretty much the only way to order from the US, ages ago.  We went back and forth on the sizing, and I did a lot of research before deciding on ordering a 60L.  Sizing is different with Comexim.  I thought I'd just order the same size that I get in the Ewa Michalak bras (they are both Polish companies), but after some communication with Comexim they advised their sizing is a bit different, and I asked around for some EM vs Comexim size advice.  In Ewa Michalak, I have been a 60HH (lately, needing a band extender...thank you very much Longest Winter Ever). Luckily, I was able to find out from someone who had tried both brands before me- who happened to be the same EM size as me) that 60L was what worked out for her. 

I emailed Comexim with my final size choice, and then that's where I messed up completely- I forgot to pay them!!!  How in the world could you do that, you ask?  Well, I do remember signing in to my PayPal account to pay for my order, but there are two different shipping options- one with tracking & one without.  I remember trying to decide on what shipping to use.... and two months later, I could have sworn I paid them.  So, I emailed them asking about the status of my order.  To my shock, they told me they never received my payment!  And to my surprise, I hadn't!!!   DUH.  All that wasted time because of my own stupidity...  ANYWAY, I quickly rectified the situation, and they quickly got to work on my bra.  I just ordered one to start with, the Tosca.

The Tosca is a plunge style, which was hard for me to tell from the photo.  What do you think?  I'm used to plunge styles having a lower center gore (the middle section of the bra where the two wires sit between the breasts), and those are the styles that tend to work better on me.  So I was a little apprehensive of the Comexim style of plunge.  
I was elated when she finally landed on my doorstep yesterday! Since ordering, some gals I know have gotten their Comexim orders and let me know how fabulous they are.  And OMG, were they not exaggerating!  This bra is beautiful.  It's a lovely lavender color- metallic lavender, as you can see in the photo, and the black lace overlay gives it a little sophisticated and sexy edge.  I can honestly say that this is one of the most beautiful bras I've ever owned.  

It is a foamy moulded cup. Those of you who have ordered from EM before- this is similar fabric.  It is not a smooth moulded cup, like the Curvy Kate Smoothie and Freya Deco, but does contain some seaming.  As always, seaming is a concern when looking for that rounded shape I covet. However, I was very pleased to discover that despite the seaming, I felt like I have a nice rounded shape going on!  The wires on the Tosca (and I imagine all the Comexim bras would be similar wiring?) are on the narrow side.  I wonder if this is something that they could customize if you know you need wide wires?  Has anyone tried?  I would venture to say that this bra is a bit too narrow for me... just by a tiny bit.  Not enough to really bother me.  

I adore this bra, and so pleased that the 60L advice was pretty spot on!  Yes, I am wearing it with an extender, but this is mostly due to my inability to stop eating baked goods since Christmas.  Now that the weather is finally warming up, I will be getting back into my work out routine (such as it is...), so I'm glad the Comexim is a bit snug at the moment.  I'd always rather go a bit too small on the band, than too big!,  I wore her all day today, and have stayed uplifted and in place all day.  I give this bra and this brand two very big thumbs up!  Their prices are very reasonable with the exchange rate to USD, and I will for sure be placing another order in the near future!  Thank you Comexim!!
