I really like this bra. It's nude moulded cups. The band is nice and snug but very comfortable. The cups gape on me partly because my underbust and above is not V shaped. I'm pretty much straight up and down, more of a l l shape, or slightly taped above my underbust. So sometimes I have wrinkling/gaping issues on the top of cups, even though I'm also even and slightly FOT. So bras like this bra won't work for me unless I take the top part of the band in and alter the straps so that they are more centered. I'm going to exchange this bra. It is a very nice bra.
This is a quality bra, but I'm not sure if it works for me.
Cons: I'm a FOB and there is some empty space at the top of the cups. Also, the edge of the bra shows through on tighter shirts and the straps seem very wide, which I didn't like. Pros: This bra does give good cleavage and the gore sits low, allowing you to wear deep v shirts. I like how smooth the outside of the cups are. Also, the bra is very supportive and seems very well made.
I'm so conflicted about the Deco. It's one of the best and worst things that I've ever worn.
Pros: INCREDIBLE SHAPE! INCREDIBLE CLEAVAGE! Durable Adorable colors and prints with tons of variety Did I mention incredible shape and cleavage?
Cons: Definitely not a band for sub-28 ribcages, it's super loose and gives zero support Shoulder straps are bulky and dig in to the point of bleeding Side of the cups dig into armpits to the point of bleeding The top of the cup gaps like crazy unless you're still growing When the top of the cups stop gapping, it's because you're spilling out
I really want the Deco to fit, because it's such a nice bra and it gives such a nice shape, but I have problems with it continually gapping at the top, but quadboobing kind of otherwise, and I can't tell if it'll be better up a cup (Guess I can find out soon when I get my 28FF though). Will update this review when I can.
After reading about the fantastic cleavage and shape that this bra gives, I had to buy it. Unfortunately, I did not get any epic cleavage. This bra is not at all compatible with my broad, shallow breasts. My boobs constantly escaped out of the sides of the cups even with swooping and scooping throughout the day. At the same time, even though the cups were way too narrow, I got no cleavage because the cups are too "tall" for me and come up way higher in the center than my breast tissue does.
Too bad, because for a simple t-shirt bra, it's beautiful and does give a very pretty rounded shape. It's just not for me.
I bought this bra in nude and black, the band is very supportive and firm. The wings are also wide, I ordered mine in a 28F and feel like it is tighter than my curvy kate bras that I own. My favorite part of the bra is the part that some people hate, the straps are quite wide and I love wide straps.
The seams are all finished unlike my cleo bras that I own, that is a huge plus for me since I do sew.
This is a wonderful everyday bra that gives a great shape under clothes and nice cleavage. It is very supportive. After swooping and scooping I appear to fill (and even slightly over-fill) the cups, but as the day wears on I do get some gaping at the top as my breasts fall towards the centre. It's nothing major though and doesn't seem to show under clothes. It just means I have to scoop myself back in when I get the chance! Overall a great bra that I wear a lot.
Size wise, I think this runs a little big in the band, and big in the cup. The band is a little loose for me- i have to wear it on the middle or smallest hook.
I probably need somewhere between a 28e and 28f. I actually have an 28e (it's almost a year old now), but it was feeling a little small and uncomfortable. The 28f feels comfortable. The cups do gap a little on the top (especially when I bend over), but it looks fine under fitted tees.
For me, it's a great everyday bra. I haven't found anything that looks better under fitted or tight tees. ...It provides excellent shape, and the cups are sufficiently thick and rigid to stop any show through.
Update: 6/7/13: I've now had this bra for 8 months. This one hasn't seemed to stretched out yet, and is still in great shape. My chest has filled out a little bit more since I first got this- so it seems to be about right most of the time, with less gaping at the top.
