I just love Freya! Though, I'm not so sure how consistent their sizing is. The first time I tried the Honey I still wasn't quite sure what size I was and I bought a 28F. I thought it fit at first, but didn't really know what a proper fit was yet. It felt nice, but was def too small. I had major quad boob, the top of the cups were digging into the top of my boobs. There was lots of spillage going on. Regardless, I instantly fell in love with this bra. I was thinking of maybe going up 2 cup sizes since the F was so ... small. But I decided to try a 28FF cuz I was more worried it would be too big in the G. I have the Hatty in a 28G and it fits nicely, but I think I could even do a FF in that one as I do I have to readjust throughout the day...not a perfect fit, but fits nonetheless. I also have the Charm and that's a 28FF, fits perfectly.
The Honey in a 28FF does fit but feels very tight! I'm def gonna have to break this thing in a bit. The band is super tight (a good thing for me since I'm 27" in the underbust). I could PROB do a 28G but I don't wanna have to keep scooping n swooping all day. I'm surprised I'm not really quad boobing in the FF since it was so bad in the F. The gore is just the right height, it's not bothering me at all like most do (I usually don't go with anything taller than 1.5-2"). The straps are thick, as usual with the Deco line. The only complaint I have with all of the Decos are the number of hooks and eyes. I really wish there were 3 for DD+ sizes, 2 just doesn't seem to cut it for larger busts. It's still very supportive. But I think it might make it a little more comfy. Guess Freya didn't wanna sacrifice the daintiness of this bra with 3 hooks and eyes.
I originally had the Topaz colorway in the 28F...SO SO PRETTY! And I really wanted the same color again but couldn't find one anywhere in a 28 band that was under $50! So, I settled for the Jade colorway this time. I'm not a fan of green at all, but this is the prettiest shade of green I've ever seen, so I'm actually happy about that now https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> Oh, and the one thing I remember from before when I had this bra....it squeaks!!!! Lol, hopefully, it'll stop squeaking with wear.
But overall, LOVE the Honey!! It comes second to my Charm. Even tho they're the same size, both in the Deco line, they don't seem to fit quite the same. I think my Charm is a better fit than the Honey. But I still love them both! The Honey gives an amazing lift and it looks fantastic under clothes! Of course, I do get that infamous line showing thru from the top of the cup/ lip. I think if you're a little fuller on top it tends to push the edge of the cups out causing this line. Somehow, the laced trim edge on the Charm alleviates this problem. The cleavage is nice, too, on both https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> I highly recommend this bra!! So happy I have it now in the right size!

Perfect shape, sometimes a little bit of a gap at the top but if I stand up straight how I should it's exactly how it should be.

Had this bra fit me perfectly, it would have been a full 10/10. It worked well with my breast shape across all factors except one: I don't have a lot of fullness on the top edges of my breast tissue (think: by armpits), so the bra would occasionally gap there throughout the day. Other than that, it provided pretty fantastic cleavage and projection, the band held up well, and the bra's shape didn't change over time. Highly recommended!

Beautiful jade green color. Deco is a tricky fit for me. 28FF is too big in the cup. I have the Freya Deco Moulded Plunge Bra (4234) in bright yellow and it is the best Deco fit I have found so far.

This was my favourite bra for the first few months I had it. It was incredibly supportive, had great shape and was very comfortable. However, the band has stretched extensively and now stretches to a good 32 inches after just four months. This makes it practically unwearable as the band is up near my shoulder blades https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> I have also outgrown the cups (or perhaps tissue migration? who knows) and the gore no longer sits flat and I must loosen the shoulder straps to avoid quad boob. I am disappointed that this is the case as I really loved the shape the Deco Honey gave me. Basically, be aware that this style's bands stretch very quickly and the measurements are no longer accurate after a few months. I hope that Freya will address this issue soon as it seems to be a common complaint.

This may be the best bra I own, although I wonder if I should go up a cup size- I get a lot of cleavage with this and I hope my boobs aren't being "squashed"

This bra is the right shape for my breasts, but it isn't the right size and the band is too big. I use it the most, though, because it fits the best out of my bras.

This bra looks like it fits well when i put it on and scoop my boobs into it. But after wearing it for 5 minutes, the cups start to gape a lot. They dont gape as much as in the 30f though. Also, even though the band is tight in a 28, it seems to ride up at the back after a while. When I take the bra off, the wires make marks wider than my boobs, so I guess the wires are too wide for me. Also the tops of the cups dig into my arms (not sure if I explained that) - I think the cups are just too wide for me. I guess this is not the right bra for me! But it looks good under clothing and gives me a great shape and I have not found anything better so I wear it a lot. Also, the band has stretched out a fair bit since I bought it.
I like the purple colour though https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />.

My F's in the regular Deco were starting to fit funny. When I bought my first one (Nude color, Spring 2009) I noticed there was a crease in the bottom of the cup. I always thought it was a style flaw, and it never was a problem until recent when my other 3 were doing it as well but much worse (because the Nude color is really a quarter size bigger in cup than the others since the ... dye shrank them). With suggestions on here I ordered this a cup size larger. I was worried it would be gigantic but when I opened the box yesterday I knew it would fit. I tried it on and the cups were perfect! No dent, no crease, no overspill on the sides or tops, the shape was now more rounded and less pointy. I tried on one of my F's to be sure and there was definitely a difference. And I wore it out last night, no problems whatsoever! I forgot it was even there! =D I'm one of those women who can get away with wearing a size bigger in band due to comfort and health reasons. This has 2" of negative ease around my 26" ribcage (measured loose. Pulled super tight and no air I'm 23.75"), so size 28 fits. Someone had made a comment on Freya's FB page about this particular bra running too large in the band. I do not find that to be the case. At it's maximum stretch it's only 28.5", so this runs true to size in band. If you stretch it more than that it ruins the integrity and shape of the bra, so I have no idea what that person was talking about...
-Smooth, seamless cups provide rounded shape and modesty.
-Band runs true to size. And there are 2 layers of fabric both on the side wings and back band, with the wings being non-stretch. I think this helps it to not stretch out so much as the others because of the stretch lace and matching Lycra underneath. It also makes it thicker so to me it supports better.
-Cute detailing all throughout. The band is full lace and there is a picot lace trim along the top and bottom of band, as well as straps.
-The color matches the orange/red detail on the Ivy Longline, so instead of 2 sets, I really have 4 to mix and match =)
-Fabric and straps are both comfortably. Lace is not itchy.
-My boobs are a little far apart, about 2 fingers width at the top and they're kind of splayed I guess, so I don't get cleavage in this size. I do with the F, but I also get overspill. This isn't a huge problem for me since I don't wear lowcut tops, but for others with a similar shape it may be, if that's the look you want.
No other complaints. I love this bra!! =)
