    The Her Room "Fitter's Comments" said that this bra's band runs large (and it does), and their advice was to go down a band size and up a cup size. On the other hand, Breakout Bras said to go down a band size but keep the cup size the same, and I think theirs is the correct way.

    I followed the Her Room guidelines, and ordered a 28DD... then had to return it. The stiff cups were too tall and came up too high, and so with the slightest movement, the upper rim of the cup would stand out and show under my shirt... Not ... a good look. Gave amazing push-up and cleavage though. The 28D probably would fit, but I'm already backed up on exchanges as it is, so I just returned it. Too bad!

    Purchased early 2010 from Breakout Bras.

    For a promising alternative to the Deco, for women whose shape is not compatible with it, try the new Cleo Neve Plunge T-shirt Bra (7196) ! I have reviews for it here: 32D - Cleo » Neve Plunge T-shirt Bra (7196) and here: 30D - Cleo » Neve Plunge T-shirt Bra (7196)

    I am used to push-up style bras. I do not have much mass at the top of my breasts, and if I don't have any padding, the bottom of the cups wrinkle (they can be pushed in and flattened and it is obvious there is no breast in the bottom of the cups). My breasts don't fill out the bottoms of most non-padded bras. This style does not have push-up padding in the cup bottoms but was said to give nice cleavage anyway, which it does without pushing you up high.

    I needed a seamless, cream-colored bra that wouldn't be obvious under my clothing (you know how thin ... everything is these days). When I bought this style in a 28E, there were obvious problems: the cups wrinkled/gaped at the bottom, especially on my smaller boob's cup; the top of the cups would gape open if I moved my arms up and around; and, oddly, the band seemed to slide up in the front, I think because the cup bottoms were not weighed down by any breast tissue, so they crept upward to find some!

    I thought a cup size down may be the correct fit and purchased a 28DD. This size is great. I still don't entirely fill out the bottom of the cups but there is no visible wrinkling or flattening. The top of the cups are fine if I keep the straps super tight, but that leaves red marks on my shoulders and gets irritating. After prolonged wear, I have noticed the bra still is not perfect for me. I think the cups are too narrow on bottom and also not filled, so the bra rides up and makes gaps at the top. I think the side underwire could be higher and the cups a tad wider on top (covering more toward the armpit), but that is the case with most bras.

    In general, the Freya Deco Moulded Plunge bra gives nice cleavage but (at least with the sizes I tried and from what most of the model photos show) the cups cover a lot of boob so you can't show the cleavage in an average low-cut top without the bra showing. The straps are very wide (5/8 inches) and this is annoying because they absolutely don't need to be so thick (especially on petite people such as myself) and it makes most of my clothes incompatible with this bra. On the bright side, the straps are super adjustable and not hard or itchy.

    I personally would have liked a little padding in the bottom, but otherwise it is a nice, cushioned, very rounded cup that is thick enough to keep you from distracting people on cold days, if you know what I mean. Good for under t-shirts and other smooth tops.

    The band is not very stretchy, which I like. Very tight! There are three sets of two hooks on my bra.

    I'm regularly a shallow, slightly FoT 30D, but I read endless reviews that Freya bras tend to run big in the band, so I ordered a 28DD. For disambiguation, since different colorways often have a slightly different cut or stretch, this was the bright yellow "Zest". Well, the band fit fine, properly snug on the last hooks, but the cups were insanely narrow. I haven't put on a bra that narrow in the cups since I stopped wearing A cups. It was only 4" across! Whether this was a manufacturing error or just true of that particular model, I don't know, but that seems fairly ridiculous to me for a brand and model known for being fairly good for shallow breasts. If I can find the Deco Plunge in a physical store in 28DD and 28E in other colors, I may try again, because the material itself was perfectly pleasant against my skin. As it was, I only ordered this color because it was the cheapest price.

      Ugh! Freya! Get it together! Inconsistent sizing makes me crazy. A 4.0" wide cup that is 6.5" deep is what I would expect to find on a 28C. Maaaaaybe a 28D.

      Super fun color and straps though!

      FWIW you're not the first one to notice Decos cups are pretty useless. It's too wide & shallow for 99% of the larger size range & too narrow for most of the small end.

      I don't think going up a cup size will be much help. When I look at your side on picture and front on picture I can see that the seems on the band aren't sitting far back enough. They are quite forward. I think you should try a size 30 band as it looks as though you need the width not projection. Hope this helps :) Good luck.

      I agree with Ambie-Australia, if you sister size up the cup should be wider, and you could alter the band down or have someone else alter it. :)

      It's definitely a matter of width, not projection. Any more projected and my smaller side would gape terribly. I read a very detailed Amazon review from someone whose 28DD was actually wider in the cup than their 30D, though, so I'm entirely unconvinced going up in the band in this case will help.

    Individually, the cups fit fine. The wires are just a tad too narrow for my preference. I like how the bra runs half a size large in cup volume and the cups cater to tall rooted people. The worst part of this bra is that the cups are simply too close together. This is a great bra if you're in between 28DD and 28E, are tall and narrow rooted, and have close together set breasts.

    Same bra as the Lydia 28DD, but this one seems to be straight from the manufacturer as it feels tighter in the band and closer in the cup. So i imagine no one has tried it on before me. Like the 28D Deco the top of the cup line does not lie flat against me. So it gets returned.

    • I am glad you reviewed this bra too. I see now the cup issue wasn't all in my imagination! LOL

    I guess I am in that group of people who find Deco to be pure torture. The 28 band is too tight, the cups are uncomfortable and seem to be too small, yet the tops of the cups are sticking upward away from my soft breasts. The gore digs in and keeps on digging as the day goes by. The bottom of the band is also somehow itchy. But I know that others love Deco, so I think we are just a shape mismatch.

    Definitely not for someone who isn't full on top. The cups angle out at the top leaving a giant gape on me.Might be better as a size down for someone who is in between sizes too

    I really like this bra, but there's something kind of weird going on with the outer cup by the wing. It may be that I'm too conical and it's looking for a rounder projection; but it doesn't bother me and is almost unnoticeable.
