The bra gods are smiling upon me! I must be cashing in all my good karma points, because this is perfection! It’s a gorgeous muted dusty purple color. It gives a round uplifting shape that I adore. There aren’t any bells or whistles, just a few tiny bows located on the center gore and where the straps meet the cup. The lace is supportive with just the right amount of stretch. Wires are really narrow and I love it! I get a good tack on the center gore. Straps are a wide elastic that are soft and fully adjustable. Back band is firm with evenly distributed elastic so no digging in. I’m about to email Gorsenia and ask them to make this in every color!
The colour of this thing, omg! It's absolutely amazing. Grey-violet, so so nice.
AprilGoulding has raved about her Gorsenias and seeing as I'm trying to find options other than EM because of the inconsistencies with the brand, I decided to give it a try. It did not disappoint, however I think this might a cup too small for me (as this is technically 30G), but I'm afraid in 65J it will be too large? Does that make sense?
This bra checks a lot of marks for me.
At this size, the bra has three part cups with a horizontal seam, and a vertical seam with stretch lace on ...top. The support on these cups is superb! Seriously, they feel very sturdy but at the same time it doesn't feel bulky and the lace isn't scratchy or anything. The tension between stretch lace and bottom cup is even so there is no in cup quadding (which I get with a lot of stretch lace bras). It has very narrow wires (they really are EM narrow, honestly), but they don't feel so rigid they poke. Overall, the cups are comfortable, if a little too short at the sides (because the band is not very wide, I think). The shape, though! Perfect round shape (as round as it gets for me, heh). I've learned not to expect this shape and never seem to quite get it unless the bra is too small, so maybe in 65J I wouldn't get this same shape. Big big minus--the cups have the horrendous elastic on top. These, of course, cut in. If I take them off, will the stretch lace be able to support the tops of my boobs, though? I don't dare do it. The stretch lace does feel very flimsy... I'm afraid the elastic is what's holding the bra together.
The band is a 65 through and through. Equal to my EM 65s (the non-rogue ones). However, a big minus is that there are only two hooks and because of that I feel the stability of the bra suffers. I would be willing to pay extra to get that third row https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />. The band doesn't feel too tight or too loose, just right.
The gore is not too wide, but it's wider than EMs. It tacks, no surprise there. The straps adjust long enough for me, surprisingly. They have very little stretch to them as well, so it's pretty lucky that they're long enough otherwise this bra would be unwearable for me.
Overall, I like this bra. It almost fits. Almost. I think I will wear it anyway as this is as close as I have to a fitting bra that is not EM right now.
edit: so I cut off the elastic. Not too much of a difference, but it does lose shape and get some in cup quadding without it. Read more 370 more words
This bra is definitely one of my top 10 faves...for fit, style, comfort, colour, everything.
Simena is listed as "grey", but it is not grey. It is a dusty purple. It reminds me of Concord grapes with that white/grey film on them. It's very different and very pretty.
The lace is soft and stretchy and has a nice floral motif. The 3-part classic balcony cups have colour-matched mesh lining on the 2 bottom sections while the upper section is left unlined.
There is a clear stretch plastic stability strip trimming the top edge of the cup. I just barely fit into this size, so it creates a slightly shirred effect ...which I love. I get no cutting in/quad boob from these strips, even in the smaller size.
I usually wear 65G in Gorsenia softcups, but had to size up to 65H in the 3 full lace softcups that I own.
Because it is a 65H, the straps are wider. They are also a little wider set than those on a 65G but not enough to bother me or slip off my shoulders.
Apart from a small, simple color-matched satin bows on the straps and gore, Simena has no decoration. This allows for the unique colour to shine. And from the photos you can see that the lace does have sheen. It catches the light and appears to be more violet in some lighting.
The band is TTS and is made from colour-matched opaque power mesh. There are 3 rows of 2 hooks and eyes.
The matching hipster panties are made from colour-matched matte microfiber and have a lot of the lace on them and have a Brazilian look. They are very comfortable and sizing is consistent with what I have come to expect from Gorsenia S.
I believe this one is discontinued, so I was happy to find one (just one) in my size via Fit Au Max. I love the stretch lace because not only does it accommodate my asymmetry, somehow it doesn't show very much at all under smooth tops! It isn't a very tight or strong lace, however, so they're is still a little jiggle, but I feel contained enough that I wish they still made these, and offered more colors. Sometimes the gore is a little high for me, but overall, I think this is my favorite bra of my collection to date.
This is the first full lace Gorsenia that I have tried and let me say: it does NOT fit like all my other soft cups (which are satin knitwear on the bottom and either embroidered mesh or stretch lace on top).
This bra is SMALLER! It is only because it is stretch lace that it fits ( and it BARELY fits - but i suspect a 65h would be a little too big).
The cups are more narrow and less deep, wings are lower and the gore is a little wider also. I have added measurements.
So, if you have been following my adventures and comments about Gorsenia, please keep this ...in mind. This lace style is about 1/4 cup size smaller than all my other 65Gs.
That being said, it is a beautiful bra in an unusual colour lace that has a soft gleam to it and it's matching panties are sexy and have lace in the back creating a Brazilian look despite being a full coverage cut.
****edit: I decided to order this bra in size 65H (that one is reviewed as well) and it fits PERFECTLY... Read more 77 more words
I love the way this bras looks, when I weigh a bit less! Fabulous projection, soft lace. I love the fit of @Gorsenia. I’ll just have to try a 75F, I suppose. (I did try a bra extender. It worked only marginally, meh.)
Simena 65H fits quite well, but the band is very firm and I would have to use an extender to wear it for a long work day. The band is as tight as a Cleo band (Panache 30 bands are stretchier/longer).
Wires are narrow but not so much that it is on tissue by the arm pit. The gore is narrower by a little than my Panache or Cleo bras. Stretch lace at the top of the cup is great, with lots of cup depth for projection (as projected as Panache Jasmine).
This is probably the most narrow and most deep bra I have ever tried. It's far too narrow for me, which I never thought I would say but there it is. It's a lovely bra, and there's a great amount of projection throughout but the narrow wires and high wide gore make this one a pass for me.
I like this style of underwear far more than the Paloma. It has a lace trim, it's more cheeky, and it's really soft and looks better on me.
Appearance: The beautiful purpley gray color of this bra is what initially drew me towards trying it out. I'm glad I did! 3 part cup construction, full floral lace with some stretch to it, no frills or anything extra: just a gorgeous-colored gray bra. Fit: I'm FOB, narrow shouldered, projected, soft tissue. This fit me really well, except for the band being a touch too tight for me; I just wear it with an extender. I could probably get away with this in a 70i, but I feel like I would sacrifice the straps fitting me in this size. It seems that they get wider and wider on the bras the larger the band you get. I would love to try a 70i, though, just to see if I'm right! It's odd to me that this full lace Gorsenia fits me so well and the other 2 65i full lace styles (Caren and Madera) don't fit me at all. I can't figure out what it is that makes this one work and not the other two.
