I really love the look of this bra. That it what initially drew me to it. It is blue with black vertical stripes, a ribbon style strap, two cute very little blue bows on the front ends of the straps, and two cute black buttons on the front gore. It is a molded, plunge bra. No seams to be found under your shirt. The quality of the stitching is superb, the hook and eye closures and buttons are sewn in securely. If hand washed and air dried, I see this bra lasting a long time.
I have only worn this bra two days. It is a snug, comfortable fit leaving light red marks that disappear within minutes of removing the bra. Sometimes I can feel the underwires under my armpits, but I wouldn't call it poking. It isn't uncomfortable, I just notice them.
Overall, I love this bra. I love it's look and it's fit.
I got this lovely bra specimen from the amazing CurvyCandy - thank you so much!
Firstly - if you'd told my 32DD-wearing-self a year ago I'd be wearing a 28G bra today, I'd have laughed you all the way to China. Secondly - what a pretty bra! Love the glacier color and the buttons and the preppy little stripes and the fact that it's not PINK like every other bra I've had lately. Thirdly - holy boobs, batman! Umm, I definitely have some boobs in this bra.
Wires - I measured 5.75" wide. *update* now, with tissue migration, they are too wide. ...But the molded cup masks that. Once I get pics up I'll probably do a fit request just because I definitely feel I am on the right track with the 28G Decos. Are there Decos that aren't *quite* so... round... on top?
Band - Good so far. Hooked nicely on the loosest hooks, could do the middle hooks. 28 bands, FTW.
Cups - so.molded. Seriously. Boob armor. They stand up on their own. I measured 9.25" depth - less than what I expected it to be. I don't quad at all, but there is a tiny bit of space between the top of my boob and the bra cup. If I reach forward, there's enough space to hide my cell phone, loose change, and take my lunch to work. They also tend to gap at the corner of the cups where the straps attach - similar to my Charlotte that tried to saw my armpits off, only less uncomfortable. But they give me such a pretty, lifted, rounded shape that it's kinda forgivable. I see what you did there, Freya. You made a bra that asks for beach ball boobs, but made it in such a way that it hides boobs that aren't beach ball shaped. Read more 218 more words
The band feels too tight. Maybe that is just because I normally wear a 42, but I don't like this feeling. The band rolls up when I move, around my rolls, but the bra doesn't actually move. The wires feel like it is poking in on the sides, and my fat is pushed into my armpits, causing uncomfortable rubbing. When I first put the bra on, my breast tissue was spilling out the cups, slightly, but as I moved around, the fat readjusted ( I think it really is fat, not breast tissue) so it was bulging under my arms instead. This is one of the only underwire bras I have ever put on that didn't feel like the wires were poking into my ribs when I bend over. The pictures look like the straps cut into my shoulders, but they do not, I actually have ruts on top of my shoulders if I am not wearing a bra, the straps are comfortable except in my armpits
This bra looks ok from the front and gives me good cleavage, but is SUPER uncomfortable. The wires dig in and sit on top of breast tissue near the armpit area. Also there is gaping on the smaller boob and mega quadboob on the larger one. The outline of the bra shows under almost every shirt I own. I also find it a little too molded. I don't like the fact that it looks and feels so unnatural. Instead of gently supporting my breasts, I feel like they are in a straight jacket or something... I also tried the 28E in this bra and there was a ton of gaping on both breasts.
This bra was one of my favorites before I lost weight! My band size and cup size is smaller now. Anyway it fits much better then the Deco Vibe (AA1704) I believe it’s slightly deeper in the cup, slightly narrower in the width of cup, height of gore is slightly longer also more true to size in the band giving center full, narrow roots, projected breast a better fit. This is my comparison in 32G I’d like to try the 30G in this style in hopes it will fit better then my 30G deco vibe (1704)
Great every day bra. The shape is very rounded and front and center. I find the padding to add a bit too much mass on some days making chest more pronounced than needed. The band has lots of stretch which is nice for those high anxiety days where it's hard enough to breathe. The material is very smooth and slips under clothing nicely. The cups are a bit high though and peek out from under some lower cut shirts. This has been my every day bra for a few months. The straps sit far to the side but don't peek out under most tops. I would call this a plunge style and one of the only ones that doesn't allow for any spilling!
Only con so far was a slight wire outbreak in the center, easily stitched up with never a poke to speak of!
The fit of this bra feels identical to the Deco Honey I own in the same size. I've discovered lately that I prefer the style of moulded cup that is a bit more closed and has piping along the edge of the cup. This is present in current Deco models, as well as Honey, Charm, Spotlight and Vibe. When I'm standing the cup lays perfectly smooth along my breasts, but if I am sitting while driving or something, the cups collapse and gape. I imagine these older styles are better suited to FOT ladies who would benefit from a more open cup where they might otherwise be sized ...out. Another thing to note is that the cup thickness appears to be a bit thicker on the Decos that have the outer edge cup piping. It doesn't feel like it adds any bulk, but it certainly helps with keeping the cups from collapsing when I sit.
Apart from that one detail, I love all my Deco bras and they get 5 stars from me every time I'm not picky Read more 79 more words
