    65H

    Fits

    When I first saw this bra online on the Gorsenia website, I really was not all that excited. It wasn't that I didn't like the style of the bra. It was the colour that bothered me. It looked fuschia, but not really fuschia...it looked kind of flat in colour (if that makes any sense all).

    In my true M.O., I started looking for other photos of it - photos on Instagram, or other bloggers' sites...but, still, I came up with nothing. So at full price, I passed.

    When it went on sale for 50% off though, I decided to ask MagdaBras4you to order it anyway.

    A few ... days later, Magda received it and sent me photos of it .

    Side note: I love Magda's photos. When she buys me a bra set, she sends me photos. She's in Poland and I am over here, across the Pond in Canada. It takes 2 weeks sometimes for stuff to come in the mail. So, she sends me photos. Magda knows that I am eager to see the true colour in daylight, to get the lens up close to see the details, the seams, the textures of the fabrics and intricacies of the lace and embroideries, etc. - all the stuff that you can't really see in stock photos. Am I alone here, in thinking, "ok. it's nice to see that bra and panties set on that perfectly coiffed body in perfect studio lighting from 15 feet away, but seriously. People. Show me the details. Show me what will make me want to buy your bra over someone else's. Especially if it costs more than $25..."

    OK. Rant over. Back to my point: Madera is a gorgeous intense shade of fuschia that is feminine but all grown up. There is no punk rock or Barbie doll pink here.

    If you're looking at my pics...see the one that's a close up of the gore charm. That's the best representation of the true colour.

    And the lace is beautiful. It is thicker than the lace used on the last, black lace Gorsenia bra called Caren that I reviewed. It is much closer to the quality and texture of the lace used on an Ewa Michalak BM (just less stretchy).

    The construction is classic 3-part soft cup balcony. Stretch lace on the outside. Colour-matched mesh lining on the inside. There is one vertical seam in the lower half of the cup and there's the diagonal/horizontal seam that creates the top of the cup.

    Yes, there are clear plastic stability strips lining the top edges of the cups.

    The cradle and gore and wings are all are covered in lace, and part of the straps have lace also.

    The straps are nice and wide on this size. It's the one thing I like most about 65H versus 65G. The straps are wider at this size. They adjust all the way up to the lace.

    The band itself is colour-matched powermesh. There is side-boning, but as shown in the photograph, it is soft and flexes easily. It causes me no discomfort whatsoever. There are 3 rows of 2 hooks and eyes. I consider it to be TTS. Super soft and comfortable.

    The gore is adorned with a small satin bow and one of the more intricate crystal charms that I have seen.

    This bra fits me wonderfully. I wore it for 24 hours straight and never adjusted it or wished I could rip it off. It gives a nice soft, natural but slightly rounded shape.

    ****However, it must be noted that this bra IS a 65H and I usually wear 65G in Gorsenia softcups. All 3 of the full lace softcups that I ordered from last season's collection were sized small and I had to re-order. Yes, it was an annoying sizing inconsistency, but at least it was consistently inconsistent - meaning all 3 full lace bras were smaller that the half knitwear/lace Gorsenias that I own.****

    Measurements are recorded and demonstrate everything that I love about Gorsenia softcups: narrow U-shaped wires, deep cups with a lot of projection at the wire (without expecting bullet-like projection at the bra apex) and they don't eat my armpits with ultra-wide-set straps and high wings.

    Classic mid-briefs/hipsters make the set. They are a perfect size S (fits more like a North America or UK size XS). Lace trim on the front and back is a nice extra. This cut is super comfortable for all day, every day wear, even for a Brazilian-loving girl like me.

    3/29/20: While I love the color of this bra, the fit is just so funky and gives an odd shape. Also, this bra squeaks insanely bad! It’s beyond annoying in both fit and sound. So buh bye it goes!

    7/9/19: The pictures don’t do the color of this bra justice. It’s a beautiful berry color. It’s very comfortable with the band firing spot on. The elastic is well distributed along the the top and bottom of the backband, so no digging in. The straps are soft yet have just the right amount of stretch to them. The wires are nice and narrow, exactly what I want in a ... well fitting bra. The cups consist of two layers, one of fine color matching mesh and the top layer a lovely lace fabric. With the additional lace along the strap where it meets the front of the cup and gives a pretty sweetheart neckline. I get a tiny bit squeaking from the wires but it’s not noticeable unless you’re really listening for it. There is a very soft flexible piece of boning on the wing. The center gore has a beautiful sparkly gemstone pendant. My only complaint on this bra is the angle view. While it gives a very natural shape, it somehow pushes my boobs up yet flattens then out just above where the three part construction converges. I’m not totally mad at it, and as of now this is my best fitting most comfortable bra I own!
    Very happy with my first experience with Gorsenia. Will definitely be purchasing more from this brand.

      Welcome to my Unicorn Bra world of Gorsenia!! Aren't the wires dreamy??

      I have this bra too and I love it! I had to size up in the 3 full-lace styles, as I found them to be about 1/2 cup size smaller (I wear 65G in the regular half-satin styles, but I am filling those cups completely, completely, with no room for error, so I have 65H in these lace styles) .

      I think this flattening may be happening because perhaps it's a little too small in the cup. Just a smidge - just enough to not allow your tissue to sink and project fully. I say that because I had a similar effect in the 65G when I tried it.

      However, if this is the case, it's just a little bit and the bra is still beautiful on you.

      Did you try a half knit satin/ half lace style yet? Those cups are just a bit bigger, so I am wondering if you'll still get the flattening effect in this size....hmmmmmmm....

      AGBras They totally are! I loved my Ewa bras for years, but sadly now I just have a hard time finding the right size with them! At first I thought the same thing in regards to size, but with this bra if I size up the wires will definitely be too wide and the cups would eat my armpits alive. Even with gaining this post baby weight, my high-profile implants keep me projected and center fast. I currently have a Gorsenia Arctic in 30H on the way to me. Crossing fingers that fits. I’m looking forward to finding and trying several styles with Gorsenia and other Polish brands. Over the years it’s just been hit or miss with Comexim and Ewa band/cup consistency.

      If only they made one more cup size up, I could join you both in Gorsenia bliss.... 😖😖😖

      MamaPagan I know right? You got 10-15 pounds to lose? That usually results in lose of a cup size or 2 LOL :P

    • 1

      MamaPagan I’ve seen my share of size cut offs. It’s not beneath me to buy the sister size and have the band taken in. In fact, there’s a Gorsenia I want so so bad, but it starts at a 32 band. Is it possible to do such a thing for you?

      Happy2BraShop I usually wear 65G in Gorsenia, but I just bought a 70F in Forever Blue and it fits perfectly on the second hook :)

      AGBras HaHa, I don't want to lose breast mass though! 😬

    • AGBras HaHa, I don't want to lose breast mass though! 😬

    • Happy2BraShop I would be sister sizing to get Gorsenia. I wear a 28:16/28:17 and they don't do the 28s. They will do the 65M which isn't enough but I think I could do a 65N based on the Ms I tried by them......

    • 1

      MamaPagan Gorsenia's bands are so big and stretchy though! D:

    • AGBras lol oh my gosh I’m about to order a K473 Feeling Blue in a 70 band because I have to have it! How do their undies run? Would you say they run true to size?

    • 1

      Happy2BraShop typically, most of their panty styles run small...some exceptionally small...but I have the Brazilian and it's very TTS. It's their largest size Small I have...about equal to a 36/8 in Ewa Michalak

    • Sovavosi I know! I tried 9 of them before giving up. 😖

    • Funny...I don't find them big and stretchy at all. They're on par with Ava and Kinga. They're definitely smaller than KL bands. I have had Ewa mesh bands that were the same and the Comexims that arrived today are looser than any of my Gorsenia. I tried a Gaia today whose band is weaker than pantyhose. Gorsenia bands are definitely more forgiving than Ewa's knit bands but they're consistent. Yay for consistency.

    • 2

      AGBras the bands on large cups are automatically longer by default, that does not help things. People keep saying Comexim and Ewa are tight and that is simply not true in 28J+ range.

    • I have to second Sovavosi. Both cups and bands don't follow the normal rules above the J cup, but that goes with all brands really. :-/

    • Sovavosi yes...i forgot about this dilemma in the larger cup sizes.

      That doesn't mean I wouldn't try again if they made another cup up!!

      My congratulations! It's very nice on you.👏

    65I

    Didn't fit

    Appearance: This bra is a LOVELY berry color. It's like a mix between fuschia, magenta, purpley pink... but not super bright. It's so so gorgeous. The gore has a little crystal charm that dangles, and the straps have the extra lace instead of bows, similar to the Caren.
    The cup is full floral lace, 3 part construction, with the plastic piece at the top edge. The top of the cup is slightly stretchy, but not nearly as much as Ewa Michalak BM styles.
    Fit: I'm FOB, projected, soft tissue, narrow shoulders; this fit as well as the Caren, which is to say that I quadded all over the place. It's weird, because the measurements match up with bras that do fit me, but the top of the cups sorta flatten and squish my breasts while also quadding, giving me an awfully weird shape. I'd be willing to try this in a size 70i, but that will have to wait until I get more bra funds. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

    Didn't fit

    Wowsza what an awkward fit lol. I own this in a 65I and was hoping to get a better more uplifting fit. Total fail all around. The cup was too small and gave a flattened in the horizontal middle fit. While I do love the color and the quality that is Gorsenia, this went back.
