Runs a full cup size big. True to size band. Deep cups. Decent room at the center gore and the bottom of the cup. Wires are a narrow U-shape, rounded on the bottom, almost vertical on the sides. They are slightly soft and may flex a little wider when worn. Straps have low stretch, are fully adjustable and are slightly thicker but proportionate to the bra. Has non-poky side boning - the tips are positioned under the strap elastic so they don't bother me in the slightest. Three hook band makes for a sturdy fit and despite the vertical wire shape and full band construction the side wing ...isn't very tall.
I rated the looks as good because there are a few elements that cheapen the look. The point of interest of this bra is clearly the strappy detailing but the double layer of mesh that comprises the upper section of the cup and the center gore looks very nice in person too and makes the bra look sexier and more low cut. This might be necessary because the center gore is clearly very high and they've used embroidered applique to disguise where the thin straps attach. The same detailing is used on the sides to disguise attachment at the straps. Also, there's a smaller applique along the outer edges of the cups. Sadly these look a little bit cheap. They're removable but on closer inspection that would reveal some not so nice seaming work. I'm also not thrilled by the shiny black fabric used for the lower sections of the cup, it does look cheap. I wish they'd use the reverse because it is much less shiny and matches the band material much better, and the shiny side would be softer against the body. Read more 186 more words
This was my second attempt with this bra. I bought it first in a 75J like my other gorsenia bras -i used to prefer my band comfortable loose -but it was riding on my back. Didn't offer support. Its band is too elastic compared to other gorsenia models so i had to size up 2 cups and size down in the band. I would prefer a 65M as its cups are not that deep like my other gorsenia bras but comes only up to an L cup.
This is my second attempt at buying this cage bra in a slightly smaller size to account for the fact that I lost a bit of volume. I'm using it on the middle hook so I would say it is closer to a 36 than a 34.
The cup seems a bit large and loose, I think it is closer to a 36G than the 36FF it should be. It's pretty much the same size as the 75I I got earlier. I guess this is a problem with cheaper brands - sometimes the sizing is inconsistent.
I cannot get the straps to lie flat. It's not a bra I want for day-to-day use, however, so these things don't matter much.
This is from my shopping trip to Poland! Feel free to send me a message if you want any more info on that. For reference, I believe that I had short, narrow roots with a very projected, omega shape. My best Cleo fit is the Meg then Marcie/Melissa.
I was super excited to see this in the pile the fitter handed to me!! I love the strap aesthetic but didn't want to order the EM version.
The band and part of the cups are made from a smooth satiny material, then black mesh, and the strappy part is black elastic anchored with a black curly embroidered patch connected to ...the top of the gore. There are some black rhinestones that aren't attached too securely. I've already lost a few but I'm not worried enough to glue them back on myself.
The strap decoration are a little loose on my short roots, so I think this would work ok if your roots were taller or if you had more upper fullness. I'm considering taking them in just a teensy bit with a stitch on the straps just to make them lay better. The regular straps are pretty stretchy and I had to adjust them shorter than I usually do. The band is also softer than I would like, but doable. If I reorder this, I think I might also try a 70 just in case.
The wires are a smidge wide on the side but not terrible. Wing height not bad. Shape is round and centered. Since the strap decoration comes up farther than usual, this style might not be good for people whose breasts are very close together Read more 169 more words
For people looking for a cheap cage bra in larger cup sizes, this is an excellent solution. The quality is far better than I expected for the price, which was just 81 zloty (less than 20 EUR). It actually looks okay under clothing; I could imagine wearing it outside of my house. It is obviously of cheaper quality than my regular bras but it's a worthwhile investment if you're looking for a sexy once in a while bra.
