    Update: For me, this isn't working. I tried to make it work but I just hate this bra for my body and have found better ones. My issues were:

    The tops of the cups gap. The bottom of the cups have wrinkling going on (I don't fill out the bottom). The front of the bra slides up. My breasts are just too wide for this bra shape, it seems. I fit in soft cup 28E Freyas and Curvy Kates so I am pretty sure that 28e is my size. Oh well!

    The bra is seamless and smooth, which is good for t-shirts. While this bra makes nice cleavage, there is ... no push-up padding in the bottom. Very round cups make sure everything is covered. However, this would make wearing the bra with wide low-cut tops an issue (the top of the bra will probably peek out before we see cleavage) and this bothered me (why call it a plunge when the bra is cut so round? just because the center gore is low? meh). The cups meet very close together, which is good for me but possibly a problem for others. However, the gore seemed a little too high for my body shape. The cups are thick enough to prevent nipple show-though. The band is firm and not very stretchy. The straps are wide, too wide for such a petite bra size, in my opinion, so keep that in mind if you like to/have to wear tank tops often. It's not discreet.

    Overall: Band was decently tight but cups seemed to narrow for me. Not keeping. I think I need a wider cup so the underwires and gore will sit flat and my whole breast will be contained--maybe the 28F. It's a stiff bra so it just does not work with my shape, no matter how many times I wear it and how much I pull and tug different things.

    My best Deco fit yet! I'm really excited!

    My ABTF size is 30E, but I found the 30E in this model to be too big - the band was loose, the cups tall, and lots of gaping was happening.

    Sizing down to a 28E was a good choice. The cups fit much shorter on me, so i fill them out better and gapping is minimized. Sizing down also made the cups pretty narrow for me. The band is a bit tight for me now, but wonderful with an extender. I know the band will stretch and fit me.

    The color and print is cute and playful - a perfect response to reviews that call these Decos basic or boring.

    Update: despite having a decent fit, the thick seams on the top of these cups make it unbearable under most of my t-shirts. Very sad.

    After hearing about the wonders of Deco, I decided to give it a try... only to be met with disappointment. Something about the way the cups fit is not right. The cups will gap unpleasantly if I don't keep my shoulders back. I also tried the 28DD, which gave me super-cleavage, but also super-armpit and back fat. I guess this Deco is just not for me...

    I was pretty discouraged when my Lagoon color Deco ended up showing through my shirts, but here I am again with another Deco. This one doesn't have the thick cup seam at the top! Despite what others said, it fits about the same as the Lagoon - not significantly taller. The cups are a bit less deep but that's the only measurement that is different really. For whatever reason the gore seems to sit on my tissue a bit more though, but otherwise I'm happy with the fit. The wires are perfect for me! Any narrower and they would be on my tissue. I've never had a bra ... with wires so close to perfection.

    After a failure with a 30E with a giant band and tall, deep cups I decided to size down to 28E for shorter cups and a smaller band and I believe it is the best size with me in Decos. I wear this with an extender currently.

    The color on this one isn't as fun as Lagoon, but I appreciate the gray. I wish it was a bit lighter gray - it feels like faded black kind of.

    • annabellynn it's great you're getting a better Deco fit in this size and style! I'm still searching for my perfect T-shirt bra. Deco cups seem too high coverage and the wires too narrow for me, unfortunately. I have to live vicariously through people who get a great Deco fit, lol.

      I'm not seeing the gore sitting on breast tissue. This is my main fit issue. Only Heidi Klum's Poolside Affair Longline's uniwire doesn't create this problem on me. Can you do a straight in front shot?

    • I just realized there is a straight front shot. Please disregard my request in my first comment, annabellynn .

    Not for boobs with more than 2 fingers of separation (I have 3 fingers of separation) - it will dig in and give comical cleavage! I also experienced about 1cm of gaping at the top of the cup, which it appears this bra is infamous for. Wires under arms cut into boobs, even when bending wire wider. Really sad to see I can't make it work...the band and straps are a dream :(

    • In the smaller size ranges, the Freya Deco is for people with very narrow, very tall roots that are close together spaced.

    As others have said, this runs a full size big in the band and cup. I normally wear 28F and 26F/24FF would have been ideal, but Freya only makes bands up to 28. :(
    I have this in the "nude" colourway, which is just skintone coloured. I would say this shade would suit light to light-medium skintones. Probably not 'nude' enough for those who are pale, tanned or dark.
    The band is way too large for my 26 inch underbust, of course. I have to wear this on the tightest hooks immediately, and will probably have to alter it very quickly.
    I'd say this bra probably ... suits those who have evenly shaped to FoT breasts. The shape is definitely not compatible with my full-on-bottom boobs. Although the depth is ridiculously small, the top of the cups sort of have a straight line instead of curving towards the body. This bra demands quite a bit of upper fullness, which I lack. I end up with gaping and the top of the cups curling because my boobs don't have a lot of upper fullness and they refuse to conform to the cups.
    Although this shares many similarities with the Parfait Casey since they're both bras that run big in the cups, there's a few differences. First off- the Casey bra's top actually curves toward the body, making it more easy to accomodate to the breast. The material of the cups are also not as frigid as the Deco. Overall, the Casey is the clear winner, though I still have to alter the band.
    I have now altered the band down to a 26 and it fits me A LOT better. Although it still isn't a perfect fit, I now have cleavage and very minimal gaping.

    Due to this being a plunge bra, the cup depth measurement is a bit misleading. The deepest part of the bra actually isn't in between the two wires: this is to make room for exposed cleavage I guess :)

    It certainly does give some cleavage.

    I found overall that the bra fit well. It's a bigger cup size than some Freya bras. It certainly requires more projection than the 28E - Freya » Hopscotch Padded Longline Bra (1633) and a little bit more than the 28E - Freya » Flourish Padded Longline Bra (1543) as well.

    Having said that, I really like it. It does need both some upper fullness and good posture to stop gaping, as well as a relatively narrow root.

    I actually really like this bra although I find the cups a bit too "tall" for my shape. I fill out the cups completely everywhere except the top - not sure if this problem would be fixed by going down to 28DD.

    Despite not being a perfect fit, this bra is comfortable and gives a nice shape.

    The cups are too tall and it gaps a little at the top. It is a shape mismach while I have short roots. I also tried the 28DD: it was too small and the wires dug in my breast tissue.

    This bra loves my narrow, tall roots. I can't believe it took me so long to try this one. Since I started my bra journey two years ago, I've been looking for something with cups that fit me as well as my old 32A Aerie Katies (I was smaller then). Now I prefer padded seamed bras to molded ones, but this bra feels like hands cupping my breasts. They are tall and open enough to enclose almost all my tissue, and the narrow wires are just amazing. I don't have a problem with wires that are slightly too wide for me because I have a bit of squish ... around my sides, but it just feels so much better to have wires that are narrow enough.

    Under clothes, the top seam is unnoticeable. Maybe if I wore a very tight and thin shirt, it would show more. The shape it gives me is very round and tall. I don't really like how it emphasizes my upper fullness because it makes my breasts seem higher set. They also seem larger since the foam is so thick and stiff. I wouldn't say that this bra gives me any more cleavage than my other bras, but that's probably because I don't have much inner fullness.

    My main complain, of course, is the loose band. It is actually very firm, so it's a bit difficult to put it on. But the band is simply too loose, especially for my 26" ribcage. As soon as I hook it, even on the tightest hook, the band starts riding up. It's not nearly as bad as a true 30 or 32 band, but it does feel like there is more strain on the straps. The straps are a tad thick and wide-set, as well as very stiff. It's not much of a problem, but I do have to wear the straps wider than I'd like in order to keep the top edge of the cup from gaping since the cups are so stiff. I'd also prefer the gore to be narrower, but again, it's not too much of a problem.
