I will preface this by saying, I ordered this bra, figuring that there was a chance that it may not fit, but because I heard that Gorsenia tends to be more open in the cup, I decided to try it.
Okay moving on. This bra is absolutely gorgeous. The lighting doesn't show it well, but the it's this deep, navy blue with embroidery details along the upper mesh section and the straps. The cup is a three part construction consisting of an upper mesh layer as well as a lower section divided by a vertical seam. The lower section seems to be made out of a material that's a strong quality? I think it will hold up with time, at the same time it feels soft against the skin.
The band stretches from 25 inches to 29.5 inches. For reference I wear a 28 back, and I have to hook this one up on the tightest hook. The cup depth was measured for both maximum and minimum. It was the maximum cup depth that I placed in the measurement field. The maximum cup depth was measured by stretching the cup over the knee. This was recorded at 14.25 inches. The minimum cup depth was measured by hovering the cup between the knees and hanging the tape measure. This was recorded at 13.25 inches.
In terms of cup width I'd probably put it slightly, less narrow than Panache, but still wide (wider than Ewa Michalak bras that's for sure)
As for the fit, I am spilling over both cups, more so on the larger side. I will note that the tip of the mesh section, after the elastic stitching, doesn't quite lie flat. I do wonder if the cutting in is due to the stitching on the mesh, or just because it's too small/does not have the amount of space I need in that section. The gore doesn't lie flat, but again, I rarely have bras that do, and it is not a deal breaker for me. There is empty space at the bottom of the bra as well as some of the sides due to how far back the wires go. So unfortunately this bra didn't work for me, but it is a gorgeous bra, so if you fit within this range and the wires, depth, etc. suits you, I'd say go for it.
I ordered this from MagdaBras4you whose customer service was excellent and kept me informed every step of the way.
