When placing my order with Dopasowana, my eye was caught by some of the very pretty bras made by a Polish company called Comexim. I had been sent a sample by their sales department some months ago but it came up very small on me so I sadly sent it back. I was advised that their bras did not go any bigger – yet I chose to conveniently forget this fact when I added two Comexim bras to my Dopasowana basket.
The first Comexim bra I chose was the Laura.

Such a lovely, simple bra but with the added bonus of being non-padded!
Before I discovered Ewa, I used to wear nothing but Freya Millies and Eleanors and had never owned a padded bra in my life. I have since disposed of all these bras as they were the wrong size for me anyway but I am left without a single unpadded boulder-holder and there are a few occasions when I would like the option of wearing one.
The sizes available on the Dopasowana website are very limited so I did not have a lot of choice and in the end went with a 36/80HH. BIG mistake…
Since placing my Dopasowana order I have been advised by a friend that the Comexim sizing runs very much smaller to that of Ewa Michalak. The photos above show this very clearly indeed!
The bra itself is very nice – simple but clearly well made. It is a perfect nude bra with plain soft cups and minimal stitching. The tops of the cups are edged with the tiniest hint of lace to add a little femininity and the band has three rows of three hooks. The straps are fully adjustable and have an embellishment running down the centre. The centre gore and sections where the straps meet the cups are adorned with a cute little lace bow.
I don’t need to say that the cups were far too small for me. However it might not be immediately obvious from the photos that the band was also way too big for me. So, if you are considering ordering from Comexim, I would highly recommend their quality lingerie but make sure you work out your correct cup size and bear in mind that the bands, in my experience at least, run rather big.
You may be wondering why I am reviewing a bra that was very obviously a bad fit on me. The bad fit was entirely my fault for not understanding the Comexim measurement system and I wanted to review this bra so others can see where I went wrong, but also to show that this a quality bra from a manufacturer who I would recommend without hesitation.
I have added the measurements of this bra, and all the bras I have tried in recent months, to Bratabase. It’s a brilliant website where users can compare their bras with the measurements of others in order to find a good fit in different brands and styles. Do make sure you add your own bras to help build up the site as its success is reliant on people using it.
