    Didn't fit

    So I gave Gorsenia a try since this one and the other I'll be reviewing ran large in the cups. Although this is the case, the cups are still too small.. but they're also too big at the same time. It's a bit of a wonky construction if you ask me.

    The wires are too wide, so there's empty space along the side of the cups (under my arms).
    The top of the cups have too much fabric (or maybe my short roots can't fill it?)
    My pendulous breasts REALLY pull the cups down, which in turn makes the band ride up. Not a good combination.
    The seam on the cups cut into my tissue on both cups. My firmer tissue on my right breast has alot more of a glaring issue than my softer and bigger side.

    It's just a weird bra in terms of fit for me. :/

    This bra is not owned any more

      Oh dear, shame it doesn't fit! It's not pendulousness per se that is making the band ride up--it's probably due to the fact that a too-large cup, with extra unfilled fabric on the sides and elsewhere, effectively makes the whole bra fit looser. Too-large cups also reduces the surface tension of the cup and can create this weird effect of the seams looking like they're indenting your tissue. If you like it a lot perhaps a cup down would be worth trying?

      Welcome to my world of bra confusion. 😄

      Sorry this one doesn’t work for you.

      wendybien I don't think sizing down is going to fix the problem as it's just going to cut further into my super soft tissue.

      @mamapagan Haha, true! Maybe it'll work better for someone else! :)

      @sovavosi Hey, that's okay. At least I know now! :)

      isn't it "interesting" how they can fit and function in different size ranges? I love Gorsenias...their wires are just as narrow as EM in my size and they are so light.

    • 2

      AprilGoulding Many brands fail to meet the mark at the upper limit of their cup ranges, so we at this range are used to our experiences not matching other ranges.
      Part of it is "guess" or "assumption" scaling instead of actual live bodies to test the bras on. This is often problematic for us. The general rules than may apply to other ranges rarely do in ours. :-/

      AprilGoulding Interesting is definitely a word for it 🤣 it's such a shame because I actually really like it. It's such a nice shade of yellow. Very spring-timey :p I'm very happy your Gorsenias work!

      @mamapagan True. :)

      Yes...I've noticed from you girls how different it is in your size range.
      I think there's a couple of thresholds for us with small bands especially...one where the cup exceeds DD and then again where it exceeds H/I-ish.
      Hmmmmmm...you think they'd be smart and use live fit models. Its not like you're THAT rare.

    • 2

      AprilGoulding With several of us right here on BtB, I agree! 😄

    • 3

      Yep. It can get a little ridiculous. I've got to say, I've noticed the hurdle with other bra brands myself. Most can't make it over to ours safely without lots of.. crashes 😋

      I'd be more than willing to help out. Bra science, man.

    • 3

      Me too. I got annoyed when Her Room said conical breasts don't exist over a C cup. I guess I don't exist, no need to make anything fit me 🙄

      You are our beautiful magical unicorn Sovavosi and we love you. 💙

    65M

    Didn't fit

    Soleil 65M

    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.

    Soleil is a pale yellow unpadded balcony bra. This particular model, as well as the Viviane model, runs very large in the cup. So far of the Gorsenia bras I have tried, these two models (same style) run about two cups larger than Gorsenia’s other models, if I was to guess.

    The band measures 25” to a max stretch of 34”, with 3 hooks and 3 rows of eye loops.

    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: 13.5”

    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
    This measurement is: 16”

    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.

    Overall, this is a very pretty Spring time bra.
    To compare to Gorsenia’s other unpadded balcony bras I’ve tried, Attina 65L (11.75” to 14.25”), Mistyrose 65M (12.75” to 14.5”), Aida 65M(12.5” to 15”) and Attina 65M (12.5” to 15”) it is clear that Soleil runs larger than Gorsenia’s other models.

So far of the Gorsenia bras I have tried, these two models (same style) run about two cups larger than Gorsenia’s other models, if I was to guess. As this was the first Gorsenia bra I tried, it really threw me for a loop with understanding EU sizing, which ultimately led me into an expensive buying binge trying to wrap my ... head around the EU/Polish bras and sizing.

    The band measured 24.5” to a max of 32”, with 3 hooks and 3 sets of eye loops.

    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: 12”

    2 Placing the cup over the knee and stretching it similar to what a breast would, to the maximum resistance.
    This measurement is: 14.25”

    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.

    To compare this 65K to Gorsenia’s other unpadded balcony bras I’ve tried, Attina 65L (11.75” to 14.25”), Mistyrose 65M (12.75” to 14.5”), Aida 65M(12.5” to 15”) and Attina 65M (12.5” to 15”) it is clear that Soleil runs larger, and closer to the 65M size of Gorsenia’s other models.

    So when looking for a Gorsenia bra, keep in mind that certain models can and do run large. So far, I found that Soleil and Viviane both run the same, and are the same style, while the rest ran smaller.
