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.
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 49 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.
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 250 more words
Simultaneous quadboob (more towards the sides) and gaping (center). Also, even though the cup width should be about perfect, the wires somehow sit almost an inch outside my breast tissue, even though it otherwise feels a little small... weird. Also also, it makes my boobs look so round and to the sides compared to my other bras that I just find the inconsistency a little odd. Struggling with whether I should keep it or not; it's nice to have a cleavage-y halfcup bra, but the fit is just so strange, I am not sure it is worth it.
The moulded cup is nice and gives me a fine cleavage but I'm not sure if the bra fits well. There are some problems in stemum area and I guess the band size is too wide. 28 DD or E woud brobably fit better.
The edge of the bra near the underarm could do with being a bit deeper (i.e need a bigger cup size) and I would like the bra to cover all of the breast tissue towards the armpit because the bra shifts around so much (loose band). BUT Freya do not do a 28FF in this size, so I will keep this bra for now, for my 'smaller days' or when I need some cleavage.
So my verdict is the cups run small and the band is very stretchy and too big in my case (typically I require a very tight 28 Freya band). It is good enough for now but I don't think the band will last much longer for giving much support, and the cups are inescapably too small in certain areas.
