My shape: tallish, widish, splayed roots, very close set at the top; evenly full top and bottom; slightly center full; pendulous; need a good bit of depth at the wire. Best fits are Panache 34G/36FF.
I had tried Nathalie which is a soft cup in the 200 series. After reading Love4Pollinators comparison between the 100 and 200 series http://www.bratabase.com/browse/gorsenia/cheri-soft-underwire-bra-k221/65H/ I was eager to try a 100 series bra so when I saw Verona available again in my size I added it. Although Nathalie was too large in the cups in this size I thought the 100 series might fit smaller so I ordered my ... usual size. As soon as I put it on I thought, "hmm, this feels EXACTLY like Nathalie." Now that I've measured this Verona I can confidently say that it IS exactly like Nathalie. Here's a link to the comparison: http://www.bratabase.com/bra/dikq9/vs/bra/dipkh/. So my thought is that when Gorsenia decided to bring this model back, they changed the cut to the same as the 200 series.
I am disappointed. I was looking forward to wider wires and was hoping the gore would be lower like in the stock photos. The materials are not as nice as the ones in Nathalie either. The back is a single layer sheer power mesh and the cup material is stiffer and not as smooth. Straps are pretty wide, which is great for larger breasts but a little bit of overkill in this size.
Construction is very good. The 3 hook band is firm and secure with flexible side stays. Underwires tack firmly but are not stabby. Even though the cups are too large, the shape is nicely rounded.
It's a good bra for the price, but Gorsenia has a lot of beauties that I prefer to this one.
