|Strap width||1.9 |
The cups are wide and shallow, as is often said of molded cup bras. I expected that going in. I also expected the band to stretch out quickly, which is why I bought a 28 band, not a 30. It quickly became large and stretchy, which is great since my looser underbust measurements are around 29 inches.
What I did NOT expect is there's an odd itchy quality to the back of the band on this bra, and the first couple times I wore it the hooks somehow managed to scrape and scoop out a bit of my back. There's still a bruise there. The itching is still a problem several wears and a couple washes later, but the hooks haven't tried to spoon me to death again.
In the future, I'd break in Decos by doing what I read someone else doing with some bra bands: wash it to get the starches/chemicals out, dry it, and clasp it around a pillow for a day or two. I'd rather not offer any more flesh sacrifices.

All I can say is THANK YOU FREYA FOR MAKING A 28GG DECO!!!! This bra is absolutely a gem for me. Like some of the gals out there who had been stuck right at the end of the size range for the Deco, I had been bouncing back between wearing a 28G and a 30G. Both had their fit issues. For me the 28G fit in the band, but the cup was too small and if I swoop and scooped properly it left me a bit exposed. When I wore the 30G the cup fit, but the band was too big causing the discomfort of a band riding up all day and it didn’t lift my breast like it should. This bra in size 28GG eliminates both those problems for me. The cup contains my entire breast while the band sits properly drastically improving the comfort level.
*For reference I measure 26 inches under the bust, 37.5-38 inches around the fullest part of the bust.
*Pictures for this review include Black and Charcoal Grey.

I ordered this based on my recommendations here but it was way too big. There was a huge gap at the top if my shoulders were not pulled straight back. At first I thought this may be because I am full on bottom, but the cups were also too wide on my sides. I will order it again two cup sizes smaller and hope that it will fit better.
Overall assessment thus far:
Seems very sturdy.
I like the molded cups however, I notice a bit of a line that forms at the top of the cup. I am not sure if this is simply because it is too big but I feel it may be noticeable under clothes.
Despite only have two clasps in the back it seems very supportive.
I am not narrow shouldered but I found that the straps were too wide for my comfort. I am hoping that this again will change with the smaller cup size.

Finally, a Deco I don't fall out of! This is a tad on the large side, but there is now so much spillage in my 28G version of this bra that it is often unwearable with certain clothing. There is a small gape where the cups meet the centre gore, but otherwise it is a really good fit for me. The band is a little more snug than my 28G version so I can wear it on the middle hooks. The band is very stretchy so think I will need to use the tightest hooks fairly soon.
On the whole, it is a really comfortable, practical bra ... which gives great shape. I find myself reaching for this on an almost daily basis.
For reference, I have very bottom-heavy, wide breasts, with a slightly swooping profile. My measurements are around 25-25.5" and 38".
edit - I am going to need to alter the band. It is incredibly stretchy and is now riding up on the tightest hooks! Some breast growth means I now fill the cups a little too much. Despite this the shape it creates is so brilliant that I just can't stop wearing it!

Fits way too big on me, but the 28G fits perfectly.

I've owned a lot of Decos but I like that the newer models come with the piping/additional strip of fabric along the top of the cup. It's an improvement on the design making the cup less open at the top but also reinforcing the cup shape so that there continues to be a smooth line along the top of the cup. The older models had a tendency to become misshapen and slouch within a few wears. Not a huge problem in the older models, but a nice improvement, nonetheless. On the other hand, while benefiting shapes like me, this design change may not benefit breast shapes that are ... clearly full on top and may cut compared to the older model design. The straps on this bra are like no other Freya Deco I own. They have ridges and ripples to prevent the adjuster from slipping. It's unnecessary for me, but some users may prefer it. I like soft smooth straps. The gore doesn't lie completely flat for me, but that's a combination of me having much center fullness as well as the band being a bit bigger than what would be a perfect length. Of course, this still fits better than all of my 30G Decos.

As the Other Deco's, it fits nicely.

As all my other deco's, I love these ones, I will keep one buying the new ones if the design looks good to me.
There we have the Nude, and the Lagoon blue which has beautiful prints one the cups.
Although the nude colour is not glamourous, it is practical. The blue one though is a crazy design, I love it! I would love to show it in the summer (of course, I won't!), as the colour makes the sun tan glow.

I *really* like this. After growing out of my 30G - Parisa Fe » Florence Plunge Push-up (PT1037) I had to go back to my old 32E - Freya » Taylor (4971) temporarily. Obviously the band was way too big and the cups were now too small, but it reminded me of how much I liked Deco and Deco recolors. I went on Amazon and the new Rebel colorway was on sale with free shipping and returns, so I gave it a shot in 28G and 28GG. The 28G fit okay but now I finally have all that tissue that used to poke ... out under my armpits actually back in the bra cup! And it's staying there, so I guess that answers the "migrated tissue or side flab" question. I was worried about it not being projected enough since I eventually developed creases in the bottom of the cups on the Taylor from my breasts pushing out and down on the fabric. I'm splayed and a bit thin in the middle (maybe not really conical anymore, though) and I love love love the way this sits in the middle. The gore is short enough not to poke me and the contour of the cups follow my chest perfectly (I'm almost exactly even) with no gaping or quadboob. Even when I relax my shoulders and lean forward, it really barely gaps at all which, for a molded cup, must be some sort of sorcery. The band feels very nice and snug - I could almost use am extended and I have a 27 inch ribcage. It seems very well made and there are no odd edges rubbing me. I was iffy about the color, since I usually don't care for animal prints, but Rebel is actually quite tasteful and fun-looking. It's more of an abstract pattern of paintbrush dabs that look animal-ish, if that makes sense. It's beige enough to be a decent nude color for a light to medium skin tone and the straps are solid. I like the pink accents in the pattern and on the bows. I took it off to record the measurements and I was so eager to get it back on, it was so comfy. So all in all, I'm very pleased with this one so far. I'm going to keep a look out for more colors to build my collection - assuming this was my last growth spurt and my size is going to stay put now!

This fits in the same way as the Deco Flamingo, but the straps are less shiny and more textured to improve the fit of straps.
