Hello, intrepid reader. Today I have for you a review of one of my latest acquisitions from my favorite artisan bra maker, Comexim. If you’ve been following along, a majority of my reviews on this blog turned out to be for bras that ultimately didn’t fit. My reviews are all fit-focused, so this is a feature, not a bug. Nevertheless, I’ve struggled to find a style that fits my size and shape even as I am often apt to give great fit advice to others. Isn’t that always the way? The past year or so, I’ve also been on a no-buy because I just simply have way too much lingerie. Finally, the time came recently to take the plunge once again and try something new. I’m so glad that I have, because I finally get to review some beautiful pieces that fit! First up, Matthiola.
Since I first discovered Comexim, I’ve desperately wanted to try the Florence plunge bra. I love the name and the pretty floral pattern. The finish looked different from other styles in the stock photos on the website. Strangely, I never did see too many review of this bra in my size range. After finding my best fit in my custom 60HH Victoria Plunge, I requested the same size and alterations from Anna for Florence.
Personally, I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day because my partner thinks it’s dumb. 🙂 And anyway, when it comes to lingerie, I buy and wear what I choose for myself to feel amazing. I don’t tend to gravitate towards sexy lingerie that isn’t practical the rest of the year. Still, I enjoy the idea of Valentine’s Day lingerie for its romantic themes and design inspiration, and to peruse fun, beautiful and/or functional pieces to add to my collection, especially since traditional “Valentine” colors like red and black are perennially underrepresented in my bradrobe.
By now, you might be thinking that I have an unhealthy obsession with Comexim’s Victoria bra … and you’d be right. I’ve tried it in every cut available and nearly every combination of alterations. What’s different about this review is that I may have finally found the one. Join me once again to admire this lace-adorned beauty from my favorite Polish lingerie maker.

I began my first Comexim journey with the Victoria 3HC almost 9 months ago now. The bra I received was beautiful, but didn’t fit, mostly because the band ran abnormally tight. This post will explain what I did next – I simply wasn’t prepared to give up on Victoria! Continue reading “A Comexim fit odyssey, Part III: Victoria 3HC – 70HH, 65J & 65HH comparison”
The Bravissimo Etta Longline has been on my must-have list for months. I mentioned it briefly in my Bravissimo store review, but now I want to give a more detailed review of one of my favorite bras that got away. There will also be a bonus mini review of the Bravissimo Satine plunge, the cut on which the Etta longline is based, so read on!
A lot of my reviews end up focusing on bras that don’t quite fit, which is unsurprising because 1) hardly anything ever fits me and 2) as soon as I find a bra that fits great, my size seems to change and I have to start all over again. Finding that perfect fit is simply too elusive! But today I’d like to review a bra that actually fit: my first Comexim plunge bra, the surprising Elena.

In this review, I’ll discuss some of my expectations about the bra, including the alterations and modifications that I ordered, and what I received.
