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
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.
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
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 absolutely love this bra. It is so comfortable and is perfect for my wide roots, bottom heavy but shallow breasts.
The central gore was stabbing me initially but after some bending of the wires- it was fine.
The push-up padding was not as thin as I had expected but it is also not as thick as the ones you get in most high street shops! The padding did create quite some cleavage that I'm not used to! (Quite a pleasant surprise)
I have the freya deco plunge, soft cup and the strapless in 28d. I do quadboob slightly in the 28d strapless but in this 28dd half cup push-up ...model I was getting a quadboob! How crazy is that. Unfortunately this model is sold out everywhere I looked otherwise I might consider buying it in a nude/blue, maybe try on a 28e to see how it fits.
The band was definitely too loose on me which I was severely disappointed with. This band was much looser than the other deco bras! I had to stay on the last hook for the centre gore to tack! However it is such a good comfi bra - I will probably just get a rixie clip when the band wears out!
Two pieces of advice for Freya: - please make more of these and make them in different colours! -please make the bands true to size!! It was almost as if they took the wing measurements from the deco plunge and pasted those on the half cup (bearing in mind the half cup has a wider base than the deco plunge which is designed for those with narrow and talk roots) - please make some 26 bands!!!!!!!!!
Bottom line: if you want to buy this try going down a band size and going up two or even three cup sizes!!
I tried this bra on again today to give it another chance. I initially had thought the bit of gaping near the gore was much worse than it is, its mostly on the smaller side. I think the gore comes up a bit to high for me at least with the spacing it has and that may be contributing the gaping. There is also some weird bulge between the band and the and it doesn't go away with an extender or with tightening the band. The fit isn't bad but a 30E might work better, either that or this style isn't for me.
