|Strap width||1.8 |
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.

I love this bra, the lace isn’t cheap, the structure is there, it’s lined in the right places.

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.
