My first Black Friday package arrived, and this bra is very appropriately an excellent everyday black bra that fits
My shape - short roots, average to narrow roots, even fullness and some inner fullness. I need a lot of immediate projection, short wire/wing, average projection in the middle of the cup, and a gore that's rather ... wide at the bottom but not too wide at the top, and cups that have room for inner fullness. This bra works so well for all of this!
One thing that works for me, but I can imagine might be a problem on someone with narrower shoulders are the wide set straps.
A bit about construction and materials - the two lower parts of the cup, only the top lace part of the cup is made from two layers of fabric. The cup is made fully from non stretch fabrics - which gives a very secure fit. The cup depth I've measured just by placing the measuring tape in the cup, when measuring by stretching the cup on the knee the depth is 34cm.
The top of the cup is closed off with a thin piece of transparent plastic. This is actually quite soft, and it wasn't uncomfortable while wearing it. I don't have the feeling that it makes the cup more closed on top, I think it's just there to reinforce the embroidery, because the edge of the tulle is cut to follow the pattern of the embroidery. The shape the bra gives is round and uplifted.
The materials are sturdy and the bra is well made. The design is simple but the bra looks quite pretty for a basic black bra. One other thing to mention is that there is side boning. It's not uncomfortable although I'm not usually a fan. The wires are quite firm but not too tall under the arm, with a wing of 11cm.
The band is made from one layer of material and it runs true to size. From what I've seen, the sizing for both cups and band have been very consistent in Gorsenia bras.
Overall this is a very nice basic black bra that's already made its way in my daily rotation.
