As with most Freya bras, the band runs big and I have to use the second set of hooks to fasten it. I should use the third set of hooks but I do not want to stretch the band too quickly (I want to keep this bra as long as possible since Freya doesn't seem to be inclined to give us more Deco half-cups in pretty colors).
Everything else is perfect. One of my favorite bras.

This bra has slight push-up padding in it and I think it is small in the cups compared to the regular deco. I can't quite fill out the regular deco in a 28F yet I do have some slight overspill in this bra directly after scooping and swooping, though this settles down and it fits quite well. It isn't the best bra for my shape (FOB) and the centre gore doesn't lie flat. I think the band is slightly stretchier than the regular deco and it is a little larger than I would like on my 26 inch rib cage. However, I expected this. This is not really ... an everyday bra for me but is great when I want some extra cleavage.
EDIT: Now that I've gone back on the pill and my boobs have grown, this bra is small enough to pretty much be unwearable. I've added some more pictures showing how it fits now. It's worse than it looks - in these photos I've stuffed my nipples back in after swooping and scooping! My size is definitely now more like a 28FF, and this bra runs small as well so it's no wonder it doesn't work for me.

I have the Freya Deco Moulded Half Cup Bra (4232), and I heard that the Ashlee was a slightly smaller version of it. I love my Deco Half Cup, but it does have a gap before scooping and swooping. It fits like a dream after scooping and swooping, but as the day goes on, my boobs unscoop and unswoop themselves. So, I hoped that the Ashlee would work better for me.
Like the Deco Half Cup, the Ashlee works pretty well for my wide rooted, shallow boobs. I do find that it is a little smaller than the Deco Half Cup. Unlike the Deco Half Cup, after scooping and swooping, there is a little quad boob. I think I would like it more if it didn't have the pushup padding. I'm am happy enough with just the moulded cups.

This was my first properly fitting bra, and sadly, I quickly outgrew it. The cups run small, presumably because of the built-in push-up pads. The band runs firmer than the deco plunges, and was a great fit.
The push-up half cups gave me a very nice cleavage, and the padding made my breasts look larger, which is a positive thing for me! This is a fantastic bra for smaller-breasted women with shallow, wide boobs. I really wish they still made this style, and that they went at least up to FF or G cups. For a t-shirt bra, it's absolutely adorable as well.
