Super cute! Love the shape it gives me under clothes. Wish the cups weren't quite so tall because there is some gaping when I'm not standing perfectly straight. It is nice to find a plunge that plays well with my tall roots though. Overall I am happy with it as a tshirt bra.
I'll preface by saying I've wanted this bra for a long time now, just got it on sale. I'm FOB 26G, so I didn't choose this bra because I expected it'd fit my shape or anything.
Pros: -Great cleavage, as expected with the Deco -The cutest design -Very comfortable, I feel like I could wear it all day
Cons: -I have a bit of gapping at the top, which I assume is from the shape incompatibility -The band is slightly loose for a 28, not as bad as other Decos though
I had to size down in the cup, I'd usually wear a 28FF (I have 28FF in the Deco softcup that fits me just fine). I would definitely recommend this bra if you're looking for cleavage or even just a molded cup. I only wish it was better for FOB breasts!
The flamingos pattern is very cute! The cut is the same as the Deco, with some differences: - As others have also pointed out, the fact that the cups edge is sown with the red fabric makes the cups more closed on top, so they will fit a bit smaller. - the straps are made of a silkier elastic, instead of the more textured elastic straps of the Deco. Also, they don't have that lace-like edge that the Deco has, which I find such an improvement! - the band also doesn't have that lace-like edge, whereas the Deco had it all around the lower part of the band. Again, it's more comfortable. My only complaint would be that the pattern is not very practical - worn under white tops the pattern shows through (also under any sheer tops). However, whatever is white and worn under darker colours tends to get some colour transfer which is then impossible to clean.
I'd say this variation of the Deco is pretty similar to the original plunge. Other variations like the Vibe, Delight, Spotlight, etc are said to be more closed on top, but this is not the case with the Flamingo.
Some small differences between my Deco Flamingo and original Deco Plunge in Lagoon: - The gore on the flamingo is wider (1.2" vs 1"). On the lagoon plunge, the wire channels are sewn together, ie they are touching at the corners. On the flamingo, there is extra fabric between the wire channels. - The straps on the flamingo are smoother and stretchier. - The cups on the flamingo seem ever-so-slightly more open on top.
Otherwise, I'd say the fit is almost identical to the original Deco Plunge: - cups are narrow, tall, open on top, moderately shallow - band is loose
I wanted this bra because I love the print, but I was a bit worried about the fit. Usually I wear a 30E in the Deco, but I do have a tiny bit of spillage in that size. The 30F actually works wonders and fits beautifully, I would say that going forward I would purchase a 30F!
This is the first bra I've got in my "real" measured size. I'm really disappointed that the cups are such a poor fit. Especially since 28Es are so hard to find. As I'm new to the game, I'm not sure if this is a shape incompatibility or a size mismeasure, or if this bra simply runs large.
I'm so glad that you like it and that the shape (mostly) works for you!
renemy thanks again so much!!
