My shape: FOB, soft tissue, narrow roots and shoulders, projected Appearance: Simply stunning light blue bra, with really elegant orange and silver embroidery. These Polish lingerie companies really know how to make a beautiful bra! The gore has a tony blue crystal charm, and the embroidery design travels up the straps, as well. Fit: Sadly, this bra doesn't fit me in many different areas. Just as MamaPagan warned me, the straps are too wideset, which I thought would be avoided if I ordered the 65 band instead of the 70. I was wrong. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> The cups are full and deep, but have major gaping ...for me. I think this is because the fabric is non-stretch mesh. This would work better for someone who has more even fullness, and perhaps even someone who is FOT. I may try to move the straps over and pinch the tops of the cups at the gore to tighten them up a bit, but I'm afraid I would just ruin the bra. I'll probably list this to see if anyone here wants to buy it, and if not, I may attempt the bra surgery. Read more 84 more words
My shape: FOB, narrow roots and shoulders, soft tissue, projected Appearance: This bra is simply beautiful! It's a semi-sheer, 3 part cup with delicate blue and orangish floral embroidery that has sparkly silver threads interwoven through it. The back of the band is a light blue satin. The embroidery travels up the straps about halfway. Fit: So I misunderstood the sizing of this bra, thinking the redditor I bought it from has given me the UK size. I did ask her if the sizing was UK and not EU, and she assured me it was. Well, lo and behold, my suspicions were right and this is two cups too small. ...(It's a 30:7 and I wear a 30:9 or 30:10, depending on brand) It fits on the bottom and the straps are nice and narrow, but it's not projected enough for me at all. I am so sad, because it's so pretty and the straps seemed nice and narrow, just how I like them! I'm going to try to find a similar Gorsenia bra in my for real size, and hope the straps aren't too wide with the larger cup size. Read more 86 more words
I ordered this before learning that Viviane has a little more depth in the cups than the typical Gorsenia. I have a lot of gaping in the lace. However, I probably would have ordered this size anyway because the rest of the cup fits fine and I need a lot of depth at the wire. Loose lace is a common issue for me if the bottom of the cup fits right. I love the opulent look to this bra. There's embroidery in the lace, cup, and straps, a light peach or tan with blue - it's really pretty. The blue thread is sparkly. The cup is completely sheer and a bit scratchier than typical Gorsenias. It reminds me of Curvy Kate's Florence material.
The gore wires get pushed underneath each other. Maybe this happens because the wires are too far apart and the weight of my breast just pushes against it? I don't know. I have quadding towards the gore wires, but borderline empty fabric towards the top of the cups. My underboob gets pinched too. Both sides. The upside is that the band is comfortable haha. 🙃
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.
Vivaine is another pale Springtime bra in an unpadded balcony style. It looks like Soleil, except that it is a pale blue, while Soleil is a pale yellow.
The band measured 24” and stretched to 32” max, with 3 hooks and 2 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”
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.
