This bra is the most perfect fit I have found! For me, the fit was similar to the Cleo Juna, with a slightly larger cup than Juna in 28D and with added pushup padding. I am between a 28D and a 28DD, and both sizes were actually an OK fit (I get a touch of quadboob immediately after scoop/swoop in this size; 28DD starts to gap with wear). The cups of this bra are also narrower than Juna, IMO, so the Deco Half Cup works better for my narrow frame.
I love the beautiful, rounded shape I get in this bra and the pushup padding actually gives me ...perfect, round cleavage that doesn't disappear throughout the day (I had that problem with pushup bras in my old size, 32B). Just the great shape and cleavage would be enough to make this a winner, but the Deco half cup is also the most comfortable bra I own (nothing pokes, nothing too tight ever), and the "nude" color blends well with my very pale skin.
I would highly recommend this bra if you have average width, slight-to-shallow projection, full on bottom to even fullness breasts. Read more 85 more words
Huzzah! It fits! The band is a bit loose for a 28 band-- I'm already wearing it on hook #2, which is saddening-- but the cups fit a wide, shallow 28D, and that's really seriously all I can ask for. I also love this shade of blue.
If you are a wide, shallow 28D, however, avoid the HELL out of the Deco Plunges.
So, the first time I wore this bra around my mother, she looked at me and said, "What? Did you get a boob job?" She wasn't joking either. This bra is shaped so that it holds all my tissue without pushing any into my armpits, or cutting across my breast tissue. With a low cut shirt, it gives a rounded, uplifted shape that's just about impossible to achieve with my small size. This bra doesn't push my boobs into each other, or smush them down...it's a very, comfortable, natural fit. The cup design is optimal for my body and breast shape the way push-up bump pads work for many other people. This is such a durable, comfortable bra, I will buy as many of these as I can afford. This fits me as well as Panache Porcelain (in 30DD) but the cups are not full-coverage (like the Porcelain), so this is perfect for low necklines.
Well it looks like I've finally found a Deco that will work for me! I normally wear a 30DD, and after hearing that Deco cups run large, I ordered this in a 30D. The wires are a little shorter and narrower than I'd like, but nothing to disqualify it from being a good fit. This bra would work well for anyone with shallow tissue. The bra is largely unembellished, save for a few little bows. The cups do have non-removable padding, which fills about 2/3 of the cup. This seems like a great option for everyday wear when you want a little extra oomph. My sole concern with this bra is that with all that padding, the cups don't offer much coverage. My breasts have even fullness, and my areolas are *just* covered by the top of the cups. So the slightest bit of shifting in the cups, and things might start to show. So far it hasn't been an issue, but we'll see what happens with a full day of wear!
A good push up bra, but it seems just too wide for my frame, causing fit and comfort issues. I get slight quad boob, and the band is definitely too big You may want size at least one cup size up from your regular Deco size, maybe two if you're full on bottom.
Ah, I don't even know where to begin with this bra! Just a total shape mismatch. I have quadding AND gaping happening - quadding in the middle of the cup, gaping near the strap and the center gore. I don't feel like my boobs are going to stay in this bra. The sides of the cup hardly contain me, and I feel like I'm spilling out all over the place.
I bought this in response to a suggestion made in comment to one of my previous Adventures based upon my being wide, top-heavy, etc. I do like the look. I really love it because it is padded toward the bottom which I usually cannot fill.
I read the reviews before purchasing the bra and they suggested size down in band (like most Freyas) and go up a cup from there. So, instead of getting a 30E in Freya (regular 32DDish), I purchased a 30F and I'm glad I followed the suggestions. I've come to the conclusion that the cup may run small due to the "push up" padding in the bottom of the cup. With that said, this is probably my best fitting Freya at this point.
Pros: It is a more mainstream style bra - as in - it has actual padding or push up pads that are not removable and it's ...a round moulded bra. This gives a pleasant round and uplifting profile. I do like the "push up". I really like the half cup style, as it has the shorter underwires. The underwires do not poke my sternum and they're pretty comfortable. The wires are pretty much the perfect length to hold everything in on the sides and the wider band definitely helps. I feel as though I'll need to do less swooping and scooping throughout the day to keep the girls in place.Cups are the perfect heighth for my tall roots. They are open just the right amount and don't cut in at the top.
Cons: As with all my Freyas, still not enough immediate projection for me. HOWEVER, this bra is totally doable to wear as an everyday bra. It is just sliiiiiiiiiiiiightly too shallow for me. The band feels firm (for Freya bands) and it's comfortable. In my opinion, this band may run slightly more firm that your regular Freya brand, so if you're on the line, get your regular band size (black colorway). The cups are wanting a tiny bit more center fullness than what I have, but with a lot of swooping and scooping, I fill the center a little bit better. I think that if the center wires were a little bit further apart, like 1/4 inch, I wouldn't have a problem. I'm hoping for some tissue migration to fill some of that out. Either way, it wouldn't be noticeable under clothing. The straps are a little too wide for me, but nothing I can't live with.
Overall, this is a decent bra. I may buy more if they go on sale again. Read more 286 more words
I've not had much success with the Deco line and this one is following suit. I was hopeful that since this is their half-cup version that the reduced height of the cup wouldn't gape with normal activity. It is better than the others for sure, but it still gapes on my smaller side with anything other than perfect posture. The cup is fairly heavily padded across the entire bottom of the cup...which I would think is good for someone FoB-challenged. The combination of the cups being tall around the Tail and the straps being wide-set, it spreads breast tissue out rather than pulling it in. ...(Then again, I do have a short torso, so that doesn't help matters.) I'm sure it would seriously irritate my Tail if I were to wear it any length of time. Maybe this wouldn't be an issue at all with tall, wide roots. The band is true to size, the straps are fully adjustable and it has a nice smooth edge to the top of the cup. The gore is a little tall for my close-set breasts. Surprisingly, it's not uncomfortable, despite that it caused a little quadding above the gore. In summary, the deal breaker for me is not the quadding above the gore, but the cutting in around the Tail. Read more 114 more words
