    Didn't fit

    Took a shot in the dark on an unknown bra in my desperate search for a workable unlined nude bra. Didn't turn out that bad! Could be slightly more immediately projected, but I say that about almost everything. It's fairly narrow, good for FOB shapes, and not totally ugly! So I suppose I consider it a win.

      Exciting!! Thank you for your adventure and risk taking :-) :-)

      i think i'd consider it a win.

      Looks lovely on you! I love the subtle pattern. Great to see more info on other Polish brands!

    • 1

      Thanks! I like the pattern too! And yeah, I figured somebody has to try them lol :)

    • If you're continuing your search, I've been lusting after the Gossard Glossies unlined mesh bra in beige. If I could get a good fit, it'd be such a great t-shirt bra! It has no seams. There isn't much out there on its fit though. Don't know if it's something you'd be interested in.

    • Not really... I've heard it runs really wide and shallow and huge. But thanks!

    • annabellynn Glossie is completely sheer... Leaves nothing to the imagination

    • 1

      I had a Glossie that I loved when I was still in its size range and didn't find it particularly wide or shallow. It can run big though just because there's so much stretch that it can accommodate a couple of different cup sizes. Maybe I should get around to putting up the measurements, since I still actually have it despite it not fitting lol

    • Have you tried the Fantasie Smoothing Moulded Balcony Bra (4520) ? Its very plain, but perfect under light and tight shirts. It's cups are molded but unlined, so great for summer.

    • Yup, too shallow and tall

    70J

    Fits

    I ordered this bra on US Amazon on 9/21/16. It arrived very quickly, on 10/3/16.

    This bra is very pretty. It has a fairly simple design, which I quite like. It has all-over stretch lace, an interior side sling, side boning, and super narrow straps. It has three columns of two rows of hook and eyes.

    It runs a full band size small. I am closer to a UK 30H these days, so my usual EU size would be 65K, but the band on this 70J is perfect. Size up in the band if you're not between band sizes.

    Now for what I like - the cups are narrow and ... fairly deep. The shape is minimized but not super pointy (it's not round like a Cleo, but then what is? https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" /> ). There is lots of room for bottom fullness. The stretch lace is very soft and comfy.

    For what I do not like - there is not much room by the center gore. I consider my center fullness (along with my bottom fullness) my defining shape characteristic, so YMMV with whether this is a problem for you. I plan on narrowing the gore to give me more room at the center. It also does not allow room for much top fullness. I am pretty even/full all over, and it definitely cuts in a little. If you are full on top or tall rooted, I do not think this is the bra for you. The straps are a little too narrow and too stretchy for me. They are a ever so slightly uncomfortable, and they allow me to bounce a bit. I am currently deciding whether or not to switch them out.

    Despite all of my gripes, I really do like this bra. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> The beige functions as a nude for me, and the shape actually looks really good under clothes. For the price (~$26 + $6 shipping), it really is a good value.

    • fattireflattire Thanks for your review and for filling in the measurements! I've wondered about that bra on Amazon. Glad to see some different brands being reviewed!

    • 1

      Thanks for the review! I had heard of the brand and I'm curious to try it, but I didn't know it was on Amazon.

    • Primula, JulieCS no problem! @Gorteks is a great brand, especially for the price.

    70I

    Didn't fit

    I ordered Marilyn before in 36E cause their calculator gave me that size. Bad idea. Do not use their calculator. The band was way too loose and the cup too small. I passed that bra on.

    Marilyn in 70I fits a lot better (if not a little too roomy in the cups?) I think in EU size I still have to order 70H despite this recent growth. Or maybe that's just Gorteks sizing.

    Marilyn is made of nice stretchy lace all over (similar to Wacoal's Halo Lace bra kind of). It has three part cups that are reinforced with mesh wings for a little side support. The cups.... honestly give ... a nice shape. Different. It's kind of east-west rather than front and center but in a shirt it doesn't look half bad. The top of the cups are finished with stretchy elastic, but it doesn't seem to cut into my soft tissue terribly, it's very very mild. It could be though because there is not much lift and so all the tissue under my collarbone doesn't get lifted either so there's nothing to cut into.
    The cups, however, are very very wide. At least in this size. They go all the way to my armpits. They are VERY firm. It doesn't bother me so much, I think what bothers me is that bra is kind of itchy on me which should be solved after a wash or two. On my smaller side there is some wrinkling along the wire, but overall nothing too terrible.
    The gore is a very strong (but not painful) tack.
    The band at 70 is like a Ewa old 70 band. It's more similar to my Fluo than her newer bras. Do not downsize in the band! It's very very tight.

    I think I want to replace these straps with a lot wider ones. They're just not very comfortable this thin.

    Overall, I like Marilyn. I do wonder if I could have ordered a 70H and gotten away with it? Right now I'm at my 'high tide' days so the cups fit, but I'm not so sure about when I'm on low tide days. We'll see.

    This bra makes me a little more confident that my 70G EM bras will fit just fine. The cups on these are huge (28cm depth, maybe even more) but they fit decently well!

    Update: I have tried on several occasions wearing this bra but the wires are just too darn wide for me and it bothers me A LOT. On top of that I find that after an hour of wearing it, the support just vanishes for some reason. It could be the cups are too big... who knows? I will not reorder this bra.

      The pattern on this looks nice.

      Yes it lets it look minimalist while still being interesting.

      SO gorgeous on you. Certainly an excellent nude for you!
      Does it feel like the straps are too short? It looks like the band is trying to ride up your back & the straps look like they are digging in something fierce.
      I agree it also a very wide look, but if you ever become adept with a needle and thread (or have an seamstress friend of go to a professional) you could move that gore together and that would bring the cups more to the front of your chest. Though it would also make the band a bit tighter.

    • 1

      The straps are WAY WAY overtightened haha. My mum was playing brafitter and was like 'oh but you'd get so much better lift if you tightened the straps'.
      I forgot to loosen them for the photos.

      I do think I want to take in the gore (I usually do) but I wasn't up for the surgery today, lol.

    • I thinknit look very lovely on you! All over lace sounds so nice! I wish Ewa did some like that.

    • Edit: "I think it looks" not "I thinknit look"....darn phone "keypad" grrrr...
      :-O

    • Lol yes, there's stretch in the bottom, stretch in the top, it's basically a very comfy bra (once I washed it and the lace got a lot more softer).

      BTW anyone wash their bras as soon as they get it? I tend to do it cause 1. IDK if the bra was a return so I kinda don't wanna wear something someone else's been wearing and 2. I don't really like the unwashed clothes smell (I can smell the dye and stuff)

    • I measure straight out of the box, do a quick try on & photos then wash before I actually wear. :-)

    • 1

      Exactly in that order as well!

    • 1

      Lol, she was just trying to get your boobies to lift above their roots. XDDD

      If you ever want to get deeper into surgery you could install some tulle or power mesh into the side of the cup like a slide sling if you want to pull it more front an center. ;-)

      I really should do my bras in that order as well, but I always just want to try the bra on SOOOO bad that I always rip it out the box and throw it right on. XD
      Then I measure it like after wearing it for a while. So all mine as like essentially "broken in" when I measure them.

    • Yea my mum is in some serious denial about my boobs. All women in my family are pretty small in that department so it's probably alien to her when she sees my behemoths. Whenever I get a new bra she's like no way, this will be waaaaaaay tooooo big for you and then I put it on and it's actually small and she just can't comprehend lol.
      Do you mean the mesh side sling it already has sewn inside?
      Btw, the 36E I ordered before didn't have that so it's a size range thing.

    • Oh no, I must have missed that part that it already had a side sling in it XD

      Funny brasaremean, when my bras come in I have the same thought as your mum, haha.

    • 1

      LeProfessor Yea I mean I don't really hate the shape of it, though! Sometimes you want wide (it makes the waist stand out more :))

      MamaPagan Yea the shock is severe but I honestly now assume, now matter how big it is, it's prolly going to be small, haha.

    • brasaremean I don't know if I'll ever get used to it. Maybe we all have those Gosia magic boobs afterall! :-)

      Too funny MamaPagan and brasaremean, I have the same thought when I get a new bra for myself too.

    70G

    Fits

    This bra is a hidden gem! Gorteks is definitely a brand that deserves more attention, because they've really hit a home run with the design of this bra. This was one of those bras I fell in love with at first try on. It fits like a glove and it's extremely comfortable.

    I expected the material to be a typical lace but it's actually a quite thick jacquard (i think?) stretch lace. This material is not only insanely comfortable because of the stretch, but its thickness provides great nipple coverage for an unpadded bra. The design of the bra is quite thoughtful, with a mesh side support sling ... in the cup and side support boning in the band.

    Onto the sizing and shape: it is very true to size for a 32F/70G. If you're one who usually orders a band size up in European bras expecting them to run small, I would not do that in this model. Choose your normal UK size. The wires are a pretty average width, so if you're looking for very narrow wires this unfortunately isn't it (although I have narrow roots and don't find the width uncomfortable at all). The cup is deep, short, and closed on top--perfect for me. It also has great immediate projection. Also, in a wonderful surprise, the straps are not set too wide or high and don't cause any pain to my narrow shoulders. The shape of the bottom section is very lifted, supported, and round, with the top section being a little bit flattening. If you have too much top fullness for this bra it might give you an "elf shoe" or "upside-down 7" type shape. I would not pick this bra if you are a cleavage seeker either. The gore is an average width, certainly not narrow like overlapping comexim gores but because the wires are not hard it is perfectly comfortable.

    I would highly recommend this bra for short rooted and/or FOB projected breasts. I would not recommend this bra for tall rooted, FOT or shallow breasts.

    I ordered this from Other Eden's eBay store, btw, and they are great. Great prices on a lot of EU brands.

    Didn't fit

    This bra fits me a lot like the Fanstasie Esme 30E. I happliy find it slightly minimizing. I almost bubble quad on my larger side. It's just a little too closed off at the top for my roots. The cup width only has a little empty space on the sides at 5". I wish there was a tiny bit more immediate projection but the cup volume is really borderline for depths that fit me so it easily might not be a complaint if I wasn't on the cusp. Overall I'm happy with it for a "nude" even though it's not an especially nice ... shade of beige. The lace mostly disapeared and its thick enough I don't show and tell through my tee. I haven't worn it for awhole day. If my opinion changes I'll come back and edit my review accordingly.

    Updated: after having this bra 6 months Im not crazy about it as I’d hoped. It’s jusf a bit too small. Now that it's getting cooler and I'm layering I probably won't wear it much but it does work decently. It doesn't have quite enough immediate projection for me so it slips down durning the day and cuts in slightly at top. I have inner fullness and a, even though depending on the shape of the bra can be functionally full on top.

    This is a jaquard soft cup bra. The fabric is rather thick, so this one would be a good winter bra. The cups are a little too deep for me, but I can work with that.

    Didn't fit

    Me: Narrow roots, narrow shoulders, evenly round, lots of immediate projection, slightly FoB, slightly centre full, splayed, never met a gore I didn't like, left-heavey by more than a cup size, 31" underbust, but prefer tight band with extender. Panache, Freya size 30GG

    I really shouldn't like this bra ... but I do. It is a cup size too small and I am actually debating trying the size up in spite of a number of design problems.

    To begin with, two hooks and tiny, fully elastic straps.

    Second, inner side slings that cuts into immediate projection, elastic top edge of the cup that quads when you move, the straps are set too far appart - but are fortunately insubstantial enough not to cut in, and poor lift/shape.

    Pros: super narrow centre gore with great side boning

    Actually, no, I won't be ordering the size up.

    Oh, PS. Gortex boxes are enormous!

    Hasn't set fit

    The fabric on this bra is really lovely! It's a thick stretchy lace with a pattern, but it's very soft yet seems sturdy. It's the same fabric also on the wings and the whole band.
    The band and the cups are true to size, and it provides a reasonable amount of lift, although it's not the most upfront shape. The quality of the bra seems good, except for a few loose threads.
    The problem for me was that the bottom of the cup is too shallow. Also, there is too much fabric on the side of the cup, between the strap and the wing. Too bad it doesn't fit, I really like the design and the quality..

    Notable: Runs a band size small, very projected, very narrow fully adjustable straps, stretch lace cups allow flexible fit, good depth at bottom of cup.

    It's a basic beige bra, subdued pattern, side sling, soft side boning. Only decoration is a beige flat bow with a small bling pendant at the center gore. Great uplifted shape with a hint of a point, minimizes a little. Doesn't allow room for as much center fullness as I have but it would not be a problem for most people. It is a hair wider than I'd consider ideal but it's not a problem fit-wise. I get a very upfront shape.

    I broke a thread when trying it on. Oops :/
