Some people think the deco is the most amazing bra in the world, and I'm going to admit that I'm biased a little that way. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> It's definitely the bra I wear most, and I hope to get at least one more. However, I realize it may not work as well for others as it does for me, maybe because of the style, maybe because of the shape it gives (it's a characteristic one!). So I'll write what I think.
-The band runs a little large, like many Freya bras. I can wear the 30F on the tightest hook, but the cups gap a little because of it. I wish I had gotten a 28FF, but I bought this at Nordstrom, after they stopped selling 28 bands. I would recommend anyone between sizes to size down in the band.
-The cup also seems to run large, but only slightly. If you're at the smaller end of a cup size, I would size down in the cup. If you're at the bigger end, this will probably fit you well.
-When I tried this on, it seemed pretty snug on the loosest hook, but after wearing it for a few days it was clear a 28 band would fit better. It's not because of the fabric stretching, it's because the wires bent to fit my ribcage better (with some help from me). I have a pretty round ribcage, so the flat wires were a bit uncomfortable. I think it's awesome that they can do that, I just wish I knew it would affect the band so much.
-My favorite thing about the deco is the characteristic shape it gives! It lifts and rounds me out like I've never seen another bra do. I don't have cleavage in it, probably because my breast tissue connects in a way it's not supposed to, but I definitely get an "oomph" shape-wise from it. People who like a more natural shape (ie non-showgirl Curvy Kate) may not like the up-front, smoothed out shape. However, this is a shape I prefer, so it's great for me.
I think this bra will fit most shapes pretty well, but I would recommend it for full-on-top and close-together boobs especially.
