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.
