Gorsenia styles listed in ascending order of immediate projection: Deep Plunge Half-padded Fully padded Unlined
This is a delightful orange sherbet- like, half- padded Gorsenia. It is more immediately projected than the deep plunge, but less projected than the fully-padded model. The apex projection, is excellent. This style will fit shallow-average breasts with apex projection needs very well, but is not ideal for the more immediately projected among us. Additionally, firmer breasts will fit better because my melted-marshmallow-soft, center-full breasts quad near the cup seam at the gore. Firmer and less-center full breasts will fit well in this model.
Despite it not fitting me, it is exceptionally comfortable. The cotton-lined cups are SO ...soft. The lace doesn't bother my sensitive skin. The color looks fantastic on both dark and pale skin. Personally, this color causes me to smile. It reminds me of the many times my grandmother purchased orange sherbet for me 35+ years ago. <3 If you like soft materials, this is a great option. My experience with these padded bras ensure more in my future.
The band is one layer; not my preferred level of support. But, it is true to size, non-irritating, and effortless to wear.
Love this bra, but it doesn't fit my projected pair as well as the fully padded Toffee....in the same color, of course https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";-)" /> Read more 114 more words
First of all, this bra is seriously gorgeous! It's the perfect sherbet orange color for spring, and nearly works as a nude for my super pale skin. I tried to depict the color with pics, but my phone wanted to make the bra appear much more beige than it actually is.
Fit-wise, I went solely off my experience with Samanta, as I'm fairly sure (?) Gorsenia makes Samanta. I could be wrong, and welcome a correction to that. So I went with my usual band (80/36), and went down in cup. The cup was a good choice, but the band is quite loose. With my Samanta, I went ...with 75H, which was perfect in cup and small in band. I don't know enough about either brand to say if this is enough to judge universally how their brands are with sizing, or if these models are unique in some way. The toffee bra has a lighter band, while my Samanta bra is black, so it could be as simple as that.
The projection on this baby is insane! I'm risking torpedo boob, but it's not too bad to stop me from wearing it. I always wear a tank or cami underneath everything, and that helps to mitigate the torpedo.The wires are perfectly narrow, and very comfy. I've been wearing my beloved EM bras less and less because the wires cause me such pain. The band and straps are wide, and I love them. It's only 2 hook, but feels like most of my 3 hook bras.
I bought this from their eBay store, and def recommend checking them out! It took about 2 weeks to arrive to me, and came with tracking all for around $35. I'll def be buying more from their store, but will go for a 75H next time and report on sizing. Read more 198 more words
The Gorsenia Toffee Half Padded Bra is so pretty - it's a salmon-like toned bra with a lovely lace overlay, except on the top half of the cups, where the stretch lace is the only material. The half-padded concept felt very comfortable and supportive for my shape (shape reference: http://bra.pe/KCho/). Even though I couldn't fully fill the bottom of the cup I found this style to be well-projected. The underwires nicely encased my narrow roots too. Unfortunately, my breasts are SUPER malleable/soft and will conform to just about whatever they're put in, seams included. The result was that this style gave me a level of in-cup quadding I didn't find acceptable, so I will not be keeping this. There is also a lot more stretch than I expected, and knowing that with more than a few minutes wear the support could give out, I would want to size down in the band.
