Gorsenia Marine padded 70J
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.
