After scoping out the limited info here and studying their size chart, I ultimately decided on the 75J (the largest size in this style) because this bra was screaming my name. I was forced to order the matching briefs (3X) because, duh, matching set?! The fit is crazy close to perfect because it's so open on top; it fits me more like a half cup than the stock photo indicates. My boobs are very round, narrow rooted and fuller on top - think balloons on a wall - so I struggle to find sufficient immediate projection. (It used to be quadraboob, but this site helped me ...get past that!) I also struggle to find lower height cups because I'm relatively short-torso'd and most bras lose their sexy when they come up to your neck. This bra manages to provide sufficient projection while being an appropriate scale for my body and the shape is excellent. If they made a 70K, I think it would be perfect but it's certainly close enough to have been placed in heavy rotation already. For reference, I am roughly a 34H+ in UK sizing. The only problem with this bra is that I get a bit of in-cup quadding where the 3 vertical sections of the bottom meet the horizontal-ish section of the top. I can't tell if it's a result of the decorative overlay that is stitched there, or if it's the base structure that allows it happen but it's only visible under thinner tops. Since the lace is textured, and the bra is a pretty bright color, I wouldn't choose it for a thinner top anyway. Some other features of the bra: cookie sleeves (highly technical term!), fully adjustable straps, 3 rows/3hooks, lined. The briefs are fine; I'll wear 'em. They come up a little high on the waist for my taste and, while they don't crawl up, they also don't really cover my entire rear end. They seem to be scaled wider, instead of with increased booty room. For reference, I'm roughly a size 16. Read more 241 more words
I thought this bra is a 3-part half cup, but in fact it has an additional horizontal part on the top which honestly makes no sense. I tried to capture this in the pictures - the cup curves in where the embroidery is, and then the top part curves out again. This creates a very weird shape and in-cup quadding. This top part also makes the cup taller than the half-cup (by 1.5cm, both bras in the same size).
Looks and materials: it's very pretty, the fabric is glossy, satin-like and it's not stretchy. The style of the embroidery is also interesting, it's a bit of a different ...design that the usual florals. The inside of the cup is lined with a light gray fabric. The material itself is very soft and nice to the touch, although I probably would have preferred a different colour.
The matching bottom (brazilian) - they run small, size up! The fabric for the bottoms is not the same as on the bra, but rather it's softer and stretchier. In the right size, they look like they'd be comfortable.
The fit - just like the other Gorsenia bras, there's a lot of immediate projection, and also a lot of projection near the gore. The wings are nice and low, and there's also a side boning - which I have mixed feelings about, but it's not uncomfortable. The cups also come with cookie pockets,which is nice.

I am adding this bra for data/informational purposes only. This Bra is not owned by me at the time of addition to the database.
Marine K276 is the padded demi cup version of Marine, with foam lined half cups in solid turquoise and a scratchy turquoise and white lace pattern on the cups. The padding is thicker than most of the polish foam lining, and these cups have pockets for pushup pads but does not come with cookie pads.
I removed the lace from the cups as it was very scratchy and looked horrible and bulky under clothing. My photos reflect the bra with this lace ...removed.
The band measures 25.5” to a max of 33” with 3 hooks and 3 rows of eyes. I shorted the band by an 1” or so in an attempt to make it wearable for me, as shown in the photos as well.
Cup Depth as measured by: 1 Hovering the cup between the knees, then placing the tape measure into the cups without any resistance. This measurement is: 11.25”
2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance. This measurement is: 12.5”
I feel these two figures give you a general idea of the minimum and maximum depth that the cup can accommodate, just like the flat and stretched band measurements do with bands. Since Bratabase only has one cup field, I enter the larger of the two, as it’s this larger number that determines if a cup is going to fit me or not since I am on the max end of the cup scale, but do realize that some may need the lower number to determine fit for their needs, so I will always include both figures in the reviews for full disclosure.
The cup height is 7.5” and is a half cup style. My original (delusional) assessment was: The center gore doesn’t tack, instead the wires sit on the breast tissue, but due to the style I assume this is actually what this bra is supposed to do, as it cradles the breasts while pushing them in and up. Unfortunately my nipples kept escaping over the top of the cups and I had a lot of quad boob so it was clear the bra was too small in the cup and the height of the cups not ideal for my breasts. I tried wearing it, but I was falling out all over the place, and no amount of tucking back in worked, and the quad boob was very noticeable under a tank. If they made it in a larger cup, I would have tried it again as I did like the lift, but alas, the J cup is the largest they made, so this one was a no go.
I do now realize I was in a fantasy world, trying to make this bra work for me, but hey, we all have our learning curves and mental blocks, right? Needless to say, this one went along to another to try last year.
