Used to fit
Heads up to anyone wanting to try this bra: It does infact run 1 cup size too small, compared to the Freya Deco, even though it's built off the same base and style. Then again, I've also heard Deco runs 1 cup size too large, but I disagree.
Measurements are as follows:
Stretched Band: 27.5"
Band Length: 24"
Cup Width: 6"
Cup Depth: 9" (pretty similar to my 28F Deco's)
Wire Length: 9"
Cup Seperation: 1"
Strap Width: .75"
I just got this in today so I can't comment on durability, but it fits (in terms of feel) the same as Deco. Structure is good, however the top edge of the cup still looks a little funny on this because of the sewn-in detail. It seems to be unavoidable, though in the smaller size I returned it was more noticeable since the cups were too small my breast tissue was pushing on the detailing causing the edge to curl out more.
The band feels a little firmer than the smaller cup size, and it is short by a half inch. Not a whole lot but for me it makes all the difference. I can close this on the loosest setting comfortably, but am able to make it to the middle.
This does not give as rounded of a profile as Deco, most likely because of the detail. But it's certainly not an overly pointy one...just very...perky (I'm not too crazy for that look, so this is a con for me. Not a really negative of one.)

I think this was worth the 2 month wait =)
