Gorteks – Pamela 65G; Tattoo You Can Take Off

gorteks pamela
I had been sent over 15 Gorteks bras recently to review, take pictures of and discuss with the company which makes them second most represented brand in my bra collection! My favorite though is the soft Pamela which is clasically pretty on its own and does wonders on bust.

The bra is pretty and sexy on its own. Pamela has a great colour which is called mocca, according to the catalougue; I would compare it to the Nesquick cocoa. The embroidery looks a bit like a henna or mehendi tattoo on a lighter complexion and the shapes of it look like hollyhock flowers. There is a little shiny pendant on the gore and it really tops the design well, altough maybe a fabric flower or a rosette would look better? Colour allows it to be a nude bra for girls of darker skin, and on Snow Whites like me it is a really seductive bra due to high contrast between the skin color and the embroidery. In my humble opinion it would look much less interesting if the bra was just black.

 

 

 

 

The edges of the cups are finished with clear elastic – fortunately it doesn’t cut into breast tissue as some of those flat elastics do.

 

I chose size 65G and the gore tends to lie on the side on my right breast, but in 65H the shape was way worse so I stuck to the 65G. The gore doesn’t bother me though, since it doesn’t dig in or hurt me. If you are between sizes I’d suggest going up a band – I am 73 cms underbust and the 65 band strateches to its maximum. It is subjectively the tightest Gorteks bra I ever tried on and I will wear it with an additional row of hooks until it stretches a bit. The edge of the band cuts in every once in a while but that can be solved with and extender. The straps are wide and pull the cups apart from the body which makes the cups wrinkle a bit – the width / depth ratio is not perfect for me, but within tolerable limits. The side support wires are harmless.

 

 

 

Gorteks is a brand that features two different fastenings, one of which is smooth. Sounds good, but the underneath of it is made form a sleek and stretchy fabric which makes hooking the bra up kind of infuriating; everytime you want to grasp the fastening it escapes your fingers, leaving a bit of stretched fabric in them. I asked the company about it and it is supposed to be an answer for numerous complaing about regular fastenings being scratchy. Such a smooth fastening won’t hurt, that is for sure, but I tried on Gorteks bras with regular ones and there was zero difference in comfort for me. To be honest no bra has ever hurt me in this area. The fastening in Pamela is comfy, doesn’t curl up or scratch,

Regarding the shape – you get what you see: a roundish yet natural look, my favorite. I like when a non-moulded bra accentuates their natural shape instead of making them ball-round.

 

 

The panties are sligthly see thru, embroidered and comfortable bottoms. The sizing is standard, an EU 40 fits me well. If you are thick-thighed like me you might want to consider going up a size; it in not a big problem, since 2-3 washes will solve the issue, but for now the panties wait for their turn when my cycle makes me bloated.

 

 

I need to say I start to consider Gorteks as the Polish Fauve: same depth / width ratio issues, but also beautiful designs and compositions. Gorteks offers sultry numbers, nude bras, regular yet not boring ones, couture designs and retro elegance, all within the reach of average Polish budget. Doesn’t Pamela look a bit like a better Chloe, after all ? 😉 It took only a one horizontal seam to make a shape nightmare fit much better. Gorteks also has a big advantage over Fauve: the bands won’t stretch out within a week, which is a recurring issue in triple F group: Freya – Fantasie – Fauve. We have something to be proud of: Poles have Polish bras 😉

The Pamela is available in a few shades and they are worth a look: I am not a fan of the tomato red bit it surely will find some fans.

 

 

 

What are your musings about the Gorteks desgins? Am I the only one who would like to see some juicy, forest green in their catalogues?
