This Bikini top really impressed me. I tried Freya Bikini tops in the past, the unpadded plunge ones and they were not supportive and the wires were so wide they ended on my back. Also I had planned to try this top 34HH but they sent a 34H to me. (I had to order my EU size and they did conversions wrong. This was labelled a 75O on the site while usually 75O=34K and 75K = 34H!) Anyway - I already expected the worst since it's a padded top and I hate those. But when I put it on, it felt really good! The wires are not extremely ... wide but keep in mind this is a H-cup and I usually wear 32 J. So the wires in my actual size would probably be too wide.
The cups are average depth but not too shallow. I don't get any empty space on bottom. The gore tacks and is a good height for me, it's not too tall or low. I just can't wear too low gores, they cut in my sternum and my boobs spill over. Not to in this top. I feel like my breast tissue is contained well apart from some minor quadboob between the cup edge and the decorative stripe. It also feels quite supportive! Not like a regular bra but supportive enough so I dare go out with it. Also wouldn't mind to put this on under clothing on my way to the pool / beach / lake. The shape is very good and round from the side. The padding of the cups gives it already a good round shape - unlike the unpadded top in which my boobs look droppy. I'm not familiar with Freya Deco these days but I think the cut could be similar.
The band is okay so far - but keep in mind I measure around 31inch underbust. I only tried the bra for a few min and it felt like the band would just ride up slightly.
So if I had nothing else and this was the only Bikini available to me, I would wear it! I also made the test to lie down in it and my boobs stayed inside. So it's good for laying down sunbathing. I don't know about swimming though, I plan to return so I cannot test this. I'm also not sure I'm confident enough for this style.
I also think I should size up in cups but down in band, which is not possible since this stops at a 32HH.
