So this is my first Freya bra. The store I shop at normally just pushes Panache line bras at me, so this was a welcome surprise and I was going to inquire if they didn't bring me back any Freya bras during my last shopping trip. I'm so grateful to have found this Deco as I've heard great things about them, this is my new work/nude t-shirt bra for sure. The wings are much higher and the straps are wider, it's all around more comfortable right out of the store than any Panache bra I've ever worn! The only downside here is that my breasts do manage to shift out of the cups a little (still working with migrated tissue) after an 8-hour day at work.

Huge cleavage in this bra, very round shape. I get a tiny bit of gaping. Also softer breast tissue will sink into the middle of this bra because the gore is not very high.

** Note: this review is based on two try-ons **
I thought a plunge bra would be good for me because I have close-set breasts that sneak under gore so that it hardly ever tacks. So why not cut out the middleman (gore)? But it turns out that I also have soft-ish tissue, so in practice, in a plunge, my breasts actually like to spill toward the center and fall out. The Freya Deco isn't as bad as some models in that regard (cough Cleo Jude cough), but it's still fickle for me: sometimes it looks good, sometimes I'm falling way out of the cups. You can see both a good day and a bad day in my pictures.
And the gore, such as it is, still doesn't quite tack.
It's a shame, because it's otherwise a style I like. A molded, lightly lined cup is my preference, since 90% of my wardrobe is T-shirts.

Again, just putting this up for listing purposes.
However, I was a slave to the Deco for many years, until I discovered Comexim. The Deco is well made and long lasting, despite my usual continuous wear (this one's in good shape as I soon realized it was too small).
They give good cleavage-in the wrong size. E.G. I wore my 28GG for ages because it gave good cleavage and Freya doesn't make a 28H in the Deco (thankfully, they do make a 30GG). It's a great t-shirt bra. I personally love the cute little bow in the middle of the cups-but I love bows. Can't see it under clothing, which is nice.
It got a lot of wear and I'd recommend it to most people who are compatible with the shape-such as those of us who are FOB.

This bra is great, but I have super narrow breasts. I don't mind wearing wide wires, but it may be annoying for some people. Sad that I have to trade it for something smaller ):

Wires may be a bit too narrow for my roots. Slight gaping on top, but otherwise I fill the cups nicely. Straps are set way too wide for my frame.

This is my go to bra! I love it. It's super comfortable and easy to wear. I agree that the cups run large, and the band stretches quickly.

In theory, this bra should be perfect. Right band size, comfy straps, looks perfect when I'm standing up straight in front of the mirror. Unfortunately, things start going wrong when I actually wear the bra in real life.
(1) The top of of the cup gaps out away from my breast when I hunch my shoulder forward or reach across my body. Looks stupid if I'm wearing any kind of scoop neck or a shirt made of thin material. This makes me really sad, as the fit across the top of my breast is perfect when I'm standing up straight, and gives a nice smooth line under clothes ... -- as long as I don't move.
(2) The curve of the underwire is too deep and digs into my sternum. The rest of the band is comfortable, but this ruins it.
I desperately want to like this bra, especially as (a) I paid full price and (b) I want to encourage manufacturers to make accurate band sizes below 32. Sadly, though, I almost never wear it for the reasons listed above. Sigh.

I filled out how it fit when I first got it...a few too many trips through washing (happened about 7 months into owning the bra) and the cup separated from where it connects to the gore and has a hole in the moulding but not the outside. Cups, from being washed and the tearing, are now too lose and don't support.

Great comfort level. There's some movement, but I don't feel like I'd fall out. For the first time in a long time I've found comfortable straps and an underwire that doesn't feel like it's trying to stab me in the armpit!
