As part of my quest to accumulate all the most beautiful bras ever produced, this was an especially important part. The subsequent disappointment of the poor fit sunk me into a depression that was almost singlehandedly responsible for my lack of blogging. (Yes, this bra killed my blog)
UNLIKE the Decos of old, but LIKE the new Decos currently produced aside from the Honey, this bra has a firm edging on the top of the cup. I was aware of this, so chose to go up a cup size from the size that used to fit me in the old Decos (30GG). The tightness issue was corrected by going ... up a size, except... it wasn't. Because this bra isn't the same thing as an old Deco with an added tight edging and in fact is not really related to the shape of the old Deco. This and I'm guessing the new Decos have a deeper cup, but only deeper at the apex, so I was left with a little cone that I couldn't fill which in comparison to the almost-cutting-in top edge was veering toward a pointy, or at least overly projected shape. The wires are also WAY too narrow for me on this. It's just wrong in every way, but only slightly wrong in small ways, like culture shock between the USA and UK.
