I tried this bra in several sizes (30DD, 30E, 28DD, 28E, 28F). The 30 band definitely works better for me than this 28, but the color I wanted (ocean) wasn't available in 30, so I decided to try some 28 bands too. The F cup is too big and too tall. However, somehow the gore digs less with this 28F than with the 28E (or 30DD). If this would be a bra I might go with the larger cup size, but with a bikini I prefer a tighter fit. I'm thinking of getting this bra in 30DD (I can have it shipped from the UK) and then changing ...the wires, but I'll first try a 32D to see if a larger band helps reduce tension on the wires/gore.
The color "ocean" is much brighter than on the Freya pictures, maybe a little too much for my taste. The colored rim is cute (and very cute on the bikini panties), but shows under clothing. The pink bra didn't show under clothing at all, so I might exchange this for a solid black. Read more 72 more words
I tried this bra in several sizes and colors before deciding to but the black 30DD. The wires of the pink 30DD hurt my ribs and I had to bend them to make the bikini top at least wearable (although not comfortable), but somehow the wires of this black bra are not as nasty and I didn't have to do any bending. The bikini fits well and looks good, especially under clothing. The bikini bottoms are cute too.
I tried this bra in many sizes. The 28E cups is slightly narrower than the 30DD cup and works less well for my breasts. The band fit true to size and the 30 feels better on my frame. The wires are very pokey in the gore. See also my review on the 28F (http://bra.pe/XWta/)
This bikini top is beautiful. I was looking for a bikini top that I can use as a bra as well. With the Freya Deco I've found it. It also looks amazing under my rash guard, and gives great cleavage but also enough coverage on the side. Works great with my shallow, full on top, center fullness. I believe it fits true to Freya bra sizes, with 30DD fitting me well. The wires are quite rigid and pointy and the tips dig into my sternum, which is pretty usual for me although not with plunge bras. The wires do sit slightly on the side part of my breasts ...(the 30E width would have been perfect), but it doesn't annoy me and looks good. I bought this bikini top in pink just to try it, and hope to find the top in their "ocean" color in 30DD. I'll be trying it in several 28 sizes as well, but they'll likely be very tight. This 30 is perfect, although for wire comfort I might go for a 32 band if I can find it. Read more 74 more words
This is my favorite swim top! It lifts and supports the girls perfectly and gives a beautiful round shape under fitted rash guards. The blue with white trim is super cute too! And I love the higher sided bottom option that doesn't create love handles.
