    It is slightly padded at the bottom of the cup, if your boobs are fuller at the bottom it can help even them out to the top a bit =)

    Of course, I was denying anything above a D cup... It did not fit me so I gave it to my younger sister. Fits her fabulous!

    28E

    Didn't fit

    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.

    28F

    Didn't fit

    It felt like the dream bra when I first put it on.

    Then I scooped and swooped.

    Major quadboobage put it right back in the packaging. Exchanging for a 30F and if that doesn't work I'm giving up on the Deco.

    It's a beautiful bra, but I should have ordered a 28E instead.

    I think this bra is for people who are full on top. The gap at the top is unreal. The moulded style of the cups makes this bra very specific in shape and is not very flexible.

    28F

    Fit

    The regular Deco does not work at all for me- it gaps massively at the top edge. So I was incredibly happy to find that the Deco half cup does work- the cups are the perfect height and so comfortable!
    I love half cups in general now because with my shape I often get lots of gaping at the top edge of fuller cup styles. I am also always on the lookout for lightly padded or molded bras. It is a symptom of wearing mass market bras for many years and being more comfortable in such styles.
    The push-up pads don't really give cleavage so much as add girth and can unfortunately make you look wider from the front. However they feel plush- as if your bust is propped up on pillows- perfect for cold winter days, haha. As is common knowledge with Freya bras, I recommend sizing down if you are between band sizes.

    30F

    Didn't fit

    This (along with a 30F - Cleo ยป Maddie Moulded Balconette T-shirt Bra (7201) ) was my first attempt at a well, proper fitting bra. And it's pretty close, but not perfect.

    The Pros: Super smooth and ideal for thin, clingy fabrics with no trim; continuous band which helps (for me, at least) to keep the bra in place; push-up padding which helps plump up my FoB breasts and makes them look really full and uplifted; and I like the narrow gore, with the top of the gore underwires practically touching.

    The Cons: [partly fit issues, partly bra style issues] straps are wider (actual width of strap) than I think I necessarily need for my size and are itchy, perhaps due to the loops along the straps(?); similarly, the looping continues along the bottom edge of the band and causes some irritation for me; ... the cups are just a bit to curved along the top and cause some gapping after settling after a swoop-and-scoop; compared to the 30F Cleo Madddie, the gore on this bra seems just a bit taller and thus jab-y for me; the band is *just* this side of too small (since Freya's run a bit loose in the band, and I can def tell the difference between the Cleo in the same size, I think it would fit well after some wear and stretching out, but right now I find it wearable with a bra extender--and I really only needed one extra hook, with the extender fastened on the tightest hook, if that makes sense, so really I only needed about 1/2-3/4" to make it comfortable); and unfortunately the top of the cups/placement of straps are just a bit too wide and tend to dig into my underarm/inside shoulder area (especially when I aggressively swoop-and-scoop).

    Overall, I like the push-up padding (but it's not removable, so that might be an issue for some people), it's perfectly smooth for wearing under thin shirts and is low enough not to show overly much under low-cut shirts, and the nude is light enough to really blend in with my pale skin tone (again, might be an issue for not-so-pale skin tones).

    28DD

    Didn't fit

    EDIT BELOW

    This was probably the worst fitting bra I have ever tried on in my life. Ok maybe not that, but I had high expectations because was hoping it would work under my (non-strapless) wedding dress. (Yeah, I'm one of the rare women that hates dresses without straps.)

    It's a wild understatement to say that this stabbed into my sternum. It poked inwards so viciously that I was convinced that it would break skin if I didn't take it off immediately. Literally stabbed through the heart. OUCH.

    Otherwise the body of the cups was OK. However there some gapping along the top, and it didn't really work as pushup, further suggesting the cup was too large. Somehow, this bra is looser in the band than any of my 30D bras - the tightest setting worked with some riding up my back.

    The final nail in the coffin ... is that the "nude" would be more accurately described as ivory. I'd say this would work as a nude bra only on the most untanned of pale people. I guess I should have expected this from a British brand.

    EDIT: OK, for some really weird reason it fit me a whole lot better the second time around, when I was trying to decide whether it goes to the UPS store. The trick is to move the underwires around from the center to the side. Now, there's no stabbing, zero gapping if I stand straight (there's some gapping as I lean forward), and it pushes up right. I'm on the fence about whether it's the right level of pushup for a wedding - I have a feeling this look could get me kicked out of church. (My sister summarized this look as "No %^&* way is that natural.") It's still REALLY pale, though.

    30E

    Didn't fit

    This bra came highly recommended for shallow shapes- but I was hesitant to try on such a padded bra. This bra made my full-on-bottom breasts appear pretty top heavy, even causing slight quadboobing once I properly scooped and swooped. I'm not convinced that it fits perfectly, but it does fit the best out of all the bras I've tried on thus far. The top of the gore lies flat, but the bottom does not, perhaps this is just a result of my weird concave sternum. I also tried on this bra in a 28F, but decided that even though the 28 band did manage to fit, my bony ribcage feels much more comfortable in a 30 band. For now, I think I'll be holding onto the 30E, as it is a great nude color, disappears under thin clothing and is much better than the 34Cs that I'd been wearing previously.
