After having 100% success rate with Gorsenia soft cups made with knitwear lower cups and embroidered or lace upper cups, I decided to try the 3 full lace models that they released last season: Caren (black), Madera (fuschia) and Simena (deep violet grey).
At first, MagdaBras4you sent me the 3 bras in my usual size - 65G. However, much to our surprise, they were too small!! Especially this one - Caren. It was the smallest of them all.
I often read here that bras made in black colourways often fit smaller than the same style in other colours. I have found this to be true for my ... 3 black Gorsenia bras. My half-knit softcups are indeed smaller but still fit in 65G, but this one was MUCH smaller. Why? I do not understand this, since the fabrics are cut after dying. hmmmm...
Magda sent me this bra again, this time in 65H and it fits perfectly and its measurements are consistent with my 65G halfknits. BIZARRE.
Caren is a very simple black lace bra with black mesh lining. The lace is delicate and fine with a subtle floral pattern. There is some stretch to the lace, however, not as much as is in the lace of an Ewa Michalak full lace BM bra, nor is the lace as thick or as soft/smooth as would be found on a BM. However, it is still a very nice lace, especially considering the price - regularly about $50, on sale for half that. It also lays flatter, and is invisible under a coloured t-shirt (I find the thick pattern of EM lace shows through t-shirts and tops).
The cups of this bra are sewn in classic 3-part balcony style with 1 vertical seam.
Yes, there is a clear plastic stability strip lining the top of the cup.
The gore and wings are also transparent lace like the cups.
The band is made of black powermesh. It has 3 rows of 2 hooks.
There is side-boning on the wing, but it is very soft and flexible, and quite comfortable. I find Gorsenia wings to fit low, so no arm-pit digging.
The only adornment is a small satin bow at the gore and the lace that extends up over the straps.
The straps on this size are wider than those on a 65G. I LOVE this. They are fully adjustable.
I chose brazilian panties to make the set. They are soft and a super nice cut.
After wearing the bra for a full 24-hour day(I slept in it too) on a bust and ribcage that is presently sore and bruised from surgery, I can attest to the high level of comfort of this bra. Not once did I beg to get out of it.
Another softcup win for me from Gorsenia.
