Used to fit

I think the new season Deco colours are stunning. For some reason I seem to accidentally accumulate pink bras. I don't hate pink, but it's not exactly my favourite colour (hmm, come to think of it I have literally NO pink items in my wardrobe that aren't underwear). It just so happens that the last couple of bras that seem to fit me well happen to be pink (Cleo Maddie and Freya Ashlee half cup - both fairly similar candy sweet shades). Whilst the 30E Maddie is fairly new and still fits well, I've outgrown my 30DD Ashlee and am into unfortunate quad-boob territory.
So when I saw the new Topaz Deco Honey and the Cobalt Deco (both about a million miles away from the candyfloss pink of my current go-to bra) I was super excited! It was lust at first sight.
So, my relationship with Deco - I have a Taylor which fits fairly well, and a Firecracker Honey which I got form another Bratabase user and is too small. I know the Deco range are said to have narrow wires and are better for FOT, projected shapes, the COMPLETE POLAR OPPOSITE to my shallow wide boosoombas. I was just about coming to the realisation (enter Maddie) that although I wanted the Deco to work, maybe it just never would be quite right....and having to look for other T-shirt bras became my quest.
However, my local House of Fraser actually (shock horror!) had both these new Deco designs in MY SIZE!! (30E) So I figured I would try them, just to remind myself of what I already new - fit ok, but not great - wires too narrow, cups too deep.
BUT - ooh something has changed! Both the topaz and cobalt now have a seamed edge to the cups. It's slightly raised (which I thought may defeat the whole object of a smooth bra, d'oh!) and gives the cups a neat, finished look, which aesthetically I think I prefer to the Decos/Deco Honeys pre-this season. I've heard that the Flamingo also had this.
So... I think it has really improved the fit. Less gaping that before, slightly more contoured to the boob....even, surely not, a less tall (shorter?!" alt=":-D" />) cup - all the things it's known for, and all the things that don't work for me. Maybe even (gasp!) wider wires?!
Hmm maybe this is just me getting all excited and carried away...but overall, for me the fit is pretty excellent now.
Deco Honey has retained a lot of the things I previously liked - firm, thick-ish band, thick fully adjustable straps, simple classic design but with gorgeous twists (ooh the buttons, eek the lace! etc). The colour is great as a light coloured alternative to white/nude bras. Wore it for the first time today and it may take a few wears to adjust the straps to the perfect length, I noticed there is still some gaping when I sit in odd positions or move around a lot, and the raised trim is probably a touch more visible that before, but I think the change is definitely a positive one for me. I will review the Deco Cobalt once I've worn it, but it seems nigh on identical to this one in terms of shape and measurements. Woop indeed.
