NOTE: This is a wider Gorsenia. The average data Bratabase shows for this model (and all wider Gorsenia models) is incorrect. Please view the individual bra measurements to ensure you purchase what will best fit.
Wow! This unlined bra fits better than any other I've tried. And, the support is as good as my Shock Absorber. Whoa. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" />
Although the gore is too wide at the top and the bottom, the center projection is better than any other brand I've worn. The immediate projection is stellar: it did not collapse while I was driving. Every other wired bra I have owned failed the "driving ... test."
The wires perfectly follow my root along my smaller breast, and I do not have the lingering bruising sensation wired bras often bestow on my body. Most wired bras I can wear for a few minutes, but this bra passed the two hour mark with ease. No bruising. Wonderful. However, the wire was sitting on the inside and outside of my smaller breast. So, I may need a 65I.
I suspicion my soft tissue is compressible. This characteristic may be the cause of the swelling that is all too familiar in wired bras. For instance, I didn't notice my breasts were compressed in the 65G Caramel until they could expand in the 65H Caramel. Routinely, others have suggested I need to "try a smaller size." This has been very unwise, painful advice to follow. It also resulted in a large, swollen lymph node. I share this as an aid to others who may have compressible tissue. Listen to your breasts. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":-)" /> Here is an album with photos of my breasts in various levels of compression: http://www.bratabase.com/albums/bgv/
The cup height near my shoulder is my nemesis. It is too tall. The gore height is comfortable, but the width is not. The gore base, which I had hoped would be narrower, is too wide, like every other brand I've tried. When removing the bra after a 2 hour trial, the typical wire impression was visible around half of one breast. My breasts do not tolerate wires without significant swelling. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":-(" /> Avocado is narrower, but I've never owned an Avocado bra. But, it appears I do not need narrow wires. Wireless bras for me until the designers create dramatically different wired bras.

Gorsenia has thoroughly impressed me, and I do not hesitate to recommend them for projected, center-full breasts.
