Comexim: Our Girls' Best Friend (A Review of the Aida Plunge Bra 65R in All Black)

The Comexim Aida in a custom all black design is a plunge with removable straps so you can go bold or basic.

One of the biggest gripes I have with boobs (no matter the size) is finding a bra that fits all day comfortably with a confidence boosting shape. Well, the search is over when I found the bra brand of my dreams --- Comexim!

A round of applause for Polish bras.

With narrow wires, deep cups, and one of the widest size ranges available you'll quickly discover that Comexim is your girls' best friend.

I fell in love with the Aida since it has some sexy strappy details that let me participate in the hot harness trend but still offer the support I need. The Aida comes with two styles of straps and you can also wear the bra as an everyday plunge bra so you can go bold or basic.

The dainty bow and velvet trim add attention to detail to this three part plunge.

Supreme construction and attention to detail make Comexim bras supportive and special. Each bra is hand made to order so you're getting a bra that's just for you! And because of this you can make any alterations you need. For example I need a larger cup size than what's available on their website so I contacted them and was able to get the Aida in a 65R and also got the colorway changed to all black. You can't exchange custom orders but the ability to get custom changes (bra straps moved in, lowered cups, raised gore, etc...) at the price of the average bra is well worth it. 

 More narrow wires and deeper cups gives a rounder shape instead of the wider look that UK brands usually give.

For several years I finally thought I found bras that "fit" in a 30K (UK) but I still had regular quading and the band became uncomfortable as the day went on. Now that I'm actually wearing a cup size that fits (LL-Mish UK) I've realized I should go with a 28(60) band for the best fit, but the 30(65) is also super comfortable and gives a flattering shape and soft cleavage. 

If you've only been fitted for US sizes you're more than likely wearing the wrong size bra. To save money on manufacturing and the stigma of large cup sizes most companies will add +4" to your band size and shove you into a size that never quite fits and can even lead to physical pain. One of the best size calculators comes from Reddit (r/ABraThatFits) and will give you a starting point to your perfect fit. The size may seem scary at first, but only because we're used to using a letter to describe size (think "D cup = huge") when it's actually a mix of band and cup size. For example a 30D is actually the same cup volume as a 34B so it's a relatively smaller size even though it may sound too big.

And remember when ordering with Comexim they use a European sizing guide which is different to UK cup sizes so check out their conversion chart or email them with any questions.


Comexim focuses on fitting larger breasts so their bras are made from resilient fabrics and years of research. Bras will fit better and last longer and at $40-50 with shipping you can get something that you'll want  to wear at a price comparable to the brands you're buying from now.


The best thing about Aida is that she can be worn so many different ways. With festival season underway I love this look with a simple ribbed bralet and studded suede skirt. I would never be comfortable in this top without a supportive bra and the strappy details make this bra an asset to this outfit, rather than a necessity.


So if you're tired of wearing bras that don't fit give yourself a confidence boost with an amazing style from Comexim. Feel free to comment any questions you have and you can also email the lovely ladies at Comexim for help with ordering and sizing.
