- Strap separation:
- Not a problem
- Underwire length:
- Runs too high under the arm, it pokes

I ordered this and a Deco at the same time to compare the two, but in two different sizes. I ordered this in a 30FF, and I don't quad any but the cups are too wide and come up too high into the armpit, especially when I've adjusted the straps short enough to eliminate most of the gaping. I think the straps on both bras are pretty horrible-looking, personally, but in different ways. I find both to be too wide for my tastes; my breasts do not need industrial strength straps to keep them up when my band is doing most of the work. I think the bows on the Deco are unattractive and tacky, but I'm not sure that the raw, haphazard joining of strap and cup in the Jeanie is preferable. The ring and sliding-adjuster on the Jeanie seem flimsier than on the Deco.
Much like the "nude" Deco, this bra is not a compatible color for me, so I can't even call it functional.
Comfort-wise, besides the cups coming up too high into my armpits, the bra is quite comfortable. It has wider wings and 3 hooks instead of 2, which is nice, and the band is firmer than the 28FF Deco.
The silhouette is slightly more natural than the super-round Deco, but after a few months of wearing nothing but unpadded bras, I feel rather bulky (I'm sure the width of the cups and straps don't help).
I suppose it would be functional enough if my arms were covered, but living in a hot place, that's almost never the case over the summer :\
This bra is not owned any more
