Gives a great, lifted shape. Fits well at first, as long as breast tissue is pushed towards the outsides of the cup. However my soft breasts quickly fall towards the center, creating a quad-boob effect and are not adequately supported in the bra.

UPDATE: I know a lot of people consider the Deco to be very stretchy, but to me, it feels very firm. I've only washed it twice, and it hasn't loosened up much at all. For me, the level of stretchiness that Curvy Kate's Showgirl bras have (ie, Thrill Me, Fleurty) is perfect when I'm wearing my correct band size. I feel supported but not choked. In my proper band size for the Deco, I feel very constricted. Maybe it's because the cups are too small (My bras that fit are 30H/30HH) and my breasts are pushing against the band?
BAND: The band ... of the bra is too tight- so much that when I sing, I have to unfasten the hooks so I can breathe deeply enough! The fabric of the band is very firm and supportive, but unfortunately does not stretch much. There are only two rows of hooks- three would have been better.
Although my underbust measurement is 30, probably a 32 would have been perfect. Unfortunately, all of the 32s that were available at the time would have been too small in the cup. I am thinking about getting a band extender so I can still use the bra. I have washed it once, and it didn't stretch much at all.
CUPS: This bra gives a nice, rounded shape. The cups are front and center, which is great for breasts like mine that don't have a wide root. Gives nice cleavage, but probably because the cups are just a hair too small for me (I probably need one cup size larger. The bottom of the cups sort of wrinkle/fold down under the weight of my breasts, indicating that the cup size is too small. The cups are one piece/molded and smooth- the fabric is comfortable on my sensitive skin and seems sturdy/well-made.
WIRES: The wires are not too wide, and they don't go up so far that they cut into my armpits. However since the bra is too small, I'm pretty sure there's some breast tissue escaping.
STRAPS: The straps adjust from the back. They are thick and well made, without being too wide. I was happy that they are not too far apart, so I don't have any problems with them slipping down my shoulders. No complaints here!
Overall, I like this bra, even though it's too small. If I could find it in a 32GG or H, I would repurchase it in a heartbeat!

The band fits loose, have to use the second hooks. The cups fit decently, doesn't cut into my armpits or cause quad-boob effect. Overall not a bad fit, but definitely not perfect.
fits in the cups
loose around band (have to use middle or tightest hooks)

Having lost some weight, this bra is now slightly too large in the band for me, however, it's so comfy and the cups fit me perfectly so it will probably be worn until it dies.

I'm a big fan of the Deco. The 30G cup is a great fit for me, but I think a 28GG would be better for the band. It hasn't stretched that I can tell, but I've only had it for a short time and haven't worn it too much yet. Compared to the 28G in the same color, Lupin, that I have, I think I prefer the 28G, but get a bit more spillage than I'd like. With the 30G, I would have to compare my pics, but I think I get a bit more separation with the 30G compared to the 28G. Either way, they are both extremely comfortable for me and I'll keep getting the Deco in the future!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this bra! It is the perfect everyday bra. I bought 2 and plan to purchase more. The cups are molded so it looks nice under all types of clothing. The wires are close together, which works for my breasts. The straps are a tid bit uncomfortable upon first wear but get much better with time. The only complaint I have is that the straps are far enough apart that they show underneath most sleeveless shirts, although I don't mind because the red color is gorgeous!

I ordered this bra online primarily because it is adorable. It fits very nicely but I do already have it on the tightest clasps. It is not necessarily the most comfortable bra and after a day of work I am sore in the shoulder strap and under wire areas. Overall this bra fits, is real cute, but I would not recommend it for a comfortable long-wear bra.

I own this bra in black. I find it quite comfortable and great under low neckline dresses. It's also almost invisible under shirts as it creates a smooth transition line between my skin and the top of the cup. The Deco is not a padded bra; it's moulded so it works great to hide the gaps at the top if you have one breast smaller than the other as in my case. The moulding also helps with visible nipples when they decide to do their own thing. As far as appearance, the Deco is fairly plain, but I think that's the whole point - is for it not ... to show under clothing and in my opinion it does just that.
I realize that many reviewers find this bra loose in the band but I experienced quite the opposite. The band in my usual 30 felt a bit too tight, but when I tried the 32 in the store, it rode up my back. So I stuck with the 30, but it isn't a problem any more because I lost a bit of weight so it now fits perfectly. The cups are perfect and true to size as well. It gives my breasts a nice round shape and lifts them to the centre. I like the thick straps and I am impressed that I do not spill out of the front as that's a problem I often have with deep plunge bras. The only ones so far that work for me in plunge are Freya Deco and Panache Tango. This bra offers good support and is a great t-shirt bra. I highly recommend it and I plan on buying it in a nude colour as well.

This is a great bra if you like a smooth and seamless line across your breasts. It's perfect to wear under t-shirts. It runs true to size in both band and cup and it fit perfectly in my usual 30G size. It is super comfortable and hugs the breasts quite nicely. There is minimum cleavage but no spilling. It also offers great support. I think it's a good basic t-shirt bra that deserves a place in every lingerie drawer.

I have splayed breasts and it fits very nicely and draws my breasts to the center of my chest. The underwires don't poke or dig into my breast bone. I've owned 3, and I've only had minor problems with the quality on one of them (a thread came out of a strap). It gives a great shape and is the best-fitting bra I have tried on for under $100.
