My F's in the regular Deco were starting to fit funny. When I bought my first one (Nude color, Spring 2009) I noticed there was a crease in the bottom of the cup. I always thought it was a style flaw, and it never was a problem until recent when my other 3 were doing it as well but much worse (because the Nude color is really a quarter size bigger in cup than the others since the dye shrank them). With suggestions on here I ordered this a cup size larger. I was worried it would be gigantic but when I opened the box yesterday I knew it would fit. I tried it on and the cups were perfect! No dent, no crease, no overspill on the sides or tops, the shape was now more rounded and less pointy. I tried on one of my F's to be sure and there was definitely a difference. And I wore it out last night, no problems whatsoever! I forgot it was even there! =D I'm one of those women who can get away with wearing a size bigger in band due to comfort and health reasons. This has 2" of negative ease around my 26" ribcage (measured loose. Pulled super tight and no air I'm 23.75"), so size 28 fits. Someone had made a comment on Freya's FB page about this particular bra running too large in the band. I do not find that to be the case. At it's maximum stretch it's only 28.5", so this runs true to size in band. If you stretch it more than that it ruins the integrity and shape of the bra, so I have no idea what that person was talking about...
-Smooth, seamless cups provide rounded shape and modesty.
-Band runs true to size. And there are 2 layers of fabric both on the side wings and back band, with the wings being non-stretch. I think this helps it to not stretch out so much as the others because of the stretch lace and matching Lycra underneath. It also makes it thicker so to me it supports better.
-Cute detailing all throughout. The band is full lace and there is a picot lace trim along the top and bottom of band, as well as straps.
-The color matches the orange/red detail on the Ivy Longline, so instead of 2 sets, I really have 4 to mix and match =)
-Fabric and straps are both comfortably. Lace is not itchy.
-My boobs are a little far apart, about 2 fingers width at the top and they're kind of splayed I guess, so I don't get cleavage in this size. I do with the F, but I also get overspill. This isn't a huge problem for me since I don't wear lowcut tops, but for others with a similar shape it may be, if that's the look you want.
No other complaints. I love this bra!! =)
