So I don't have any pictures of myself in this bra because I returned it before coming to this site. But to describe the fit: I had major gapping at the top of the cups and the band was uncomfortably tight on the loosest hook. I filled every inch of the bra but the top. The cups came up right under my armpits and chafed when I moved my arms. When I looked at how all of it fit, I noticed this strange bulge on the top elastic of the band, just past the cups. The way it looked made me think that my rib cage wasn't big enough to fit the top elastic and yet was too large to comfortably fit the bottom elastic. I tried this bra again in a 30E and a 32DD, neither was comfortable and both had the same strange top elastic situation. I really wanted to like this bra but it just didn't fit.

Some people think the deco is the most amazing bra in the world, and I'm going to admit that I'm biased a little that way. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> It's definitely the bra I wear most, and I hope to get at least one more. However, I realize it may not work as well for others as it does for me, maybe because of the style, maybe because of the shape it gives (it's a characteristic one!). So I'll write what I think.
-The band runs a little large, like many Freya bras. I can wear the 30F on the tightest hook, but the cups gap ... a little because of it. I wish I had gotten a 28FF, but I bought this at Nordstrom, after they stopped selling 28 bands. I would recommend anyone between sizes to size down in the band.
-The cup also seems to run large, but only slightly. If you're at the smaller end of a cup size, I would size down in the cup. If you're at the bigger end, this will probably fit you well.
-When I tried this on, it seemed pretty snug on the loosest hook, but after wearing it for a few days it was clear a 28 band would fit better. It's not because of the fabric stretching, it's because the wires bent to fit my ribcage better (with some help from me). I have a pretty round ribcage, so the flat wires were a bit uncomfortable. I think it's awesome that they can do that, I just wish I knew it would affect the band so much.
-My favorite thing about the deco is the characteristic shape it gives! It lifts and rounds me out like I've never seen another bra do. I don't have cleavage in it, probably because my breast tissue connects in a way it's not supposed to, but I definitely get an "oomph" shape-wise from it. People who like a more natural shape (ie non-showgirl Curvy Kate) may not like the up-front, smoothed out shape. However, this is a shape I prefer, so it's great for me.
I think this bra will fit most shapes pretty well, but I would recommend it for full-on-top and close-together boobs especially.

This bra has been reviewed alot, but I'd like to just briefly add my perspective as a non-moulded cup wearer. I don't really see this as becoming an everyday bra for me, but I have to say it's pretty comfortable. The moulded cups seem to increase the size and/or appearance of my boobs, which isn't always preferable, but I can see it being useful occasionally. The cleavage is great - on par with the photos on the site. The bra feels pretty secure even though so much of the breast is exposed and remains wobbly. I think I could have gone with either ... the 30 F or 30 FF, as the F is slightly small in the cup and can have some quad boob if I don't adjust myself very carefully.
I just received this today (from Clara-Olivia.com, which had good service), so I can't comment on the band stretching issues or longevity.
After a long time of wearing full cup bras, I'm pretty stoked to have this as an extra bit of arsenal in the lingerie drawer, and to get to shopping for some scoop neck tops to wear with it.

Based on several reviews I've read, I sized down in the band on this one. It's only slightly snug, but the reviews said it should loosen up just a little after a few washes. Anyway... WOW. This bra makes my boobs look 1) huge and 2) very perky. I have never had a bra give me this kind of shape before. It's amazing.
Update: the band loosened up considerably after only one wearing and now feels like a 32 band. Sizing down in the band is definitely recommended. Still looks amazing and is super comfortable.

This is my third attempt at the Deco. The 32E Awakening fits me perfectly, and while looking at something else, I saw that it was based on the Deco, only I had tried a 32E Deco, and it didn't work for me as I got gaping at the top with movement. I tried a 32DD, and the cups were not big enough to capture my side tissue. Anyway, I compared the actual numbers and thought the 30F might work better. The band is a little tight initially, but by third wear, it's stretched enough to be comfortable, and it looks great. Oh, and I was delighted because it was $20 less than the 32E thanks to the vagaries of Amazon.

It's a nice, well made bra. It just doesn't fit my shape. It would be a great T-shirt bra, with the smooth, molded cups it wouldn't show any seams. The center gore was too wide for me to deal with and I need a more immediately projected bra to prevent the unfortunate crease from happening. As for the appearance, it's a plain, serviceable bra. It doesn't have the lace or frills to make it sexy on it's own. Though I've found that if the bra fits you well it doesn't really matter if it's sexy you'll feel sexy wearing it. Also, I realize I hooked it on the tightest set to begin with, so there was no way to go tighter as the elastic stretched and lost elasticity.

I got his bra when I was first trying to discover my correct size. Turns out I'm most definitely NOT a 30f! But it's a super nice bra. I wish I had it in a 32h!

Smooth, invisible under clothes. Comfortable.

I find the straps on this bra lay a bit wide for my shoulders and the underwire is pretty stiff, but overall I like it! The cups are also pretty stiff, the straps are quite wide themselves, and the detail is very pretty. The band is pretty tight but not uncomfortably so, and of course will stretch with use. The underwires are pretty stiff on my ribs after several hours, but it's more toeing the line of supportive and uncomfortable than anything else. I like it, overall.

I got this bra before realizing that in this style Deco I need a 30E even though the cup depth measures to be close to my perimeter I get too much gape at the top in this version of the Deco. The top of the cup seems to be fairly open in this model.
