This bra fits my bust nicely, but the back band is not comfortable. It isn't very stretchy and only has two hooks, so it tends to pinch as the day goes on. The shape it gives is fantastic, so I'm willing to deal with some discomfort for the overall look.
I keep seeing other reviews online that say the band runs large on this bra, but on my particular bra it seems to be the opposite. My underbust is 31" so I'm usually somewhere in between a 30 and a 32 band. I can typically go into a 30 band quite comfortably in Freya, but I definitely need a 32 in this bra. This may be due to the non-stretch material used on the band.
Overall I would recommend this bra for going out or wearing for short periods of time. For me, it is not suitable for an everyday or work bra. Unfortunately, it is very plain so it looks more like an everyday bra than a special occasion bra.

I bought this bra after reading some great reviews of it on Georgina Horne's blog www.fullerfigurefullerbust.com. She always raves about her Decos, even though they're too small for her. After an online consultation with the great staff at Bravissimo, I decided to try it out in a 32GG, even though my normal size would be 32H. The woman I talked to said that they're quite generous in the cup, and she was totally right. I now have two Freya Decos, in black and beige, and they're my absolute go-to bras. The underwires doesn't poke in either my ribs or between the boobs, it has ... pretty much held its shape throughout for almost 2 years with a LOT of wear, and it gives you a great cleavage, while still being very supportive. The only downsides I find with it is that it's only two hooks, I'd like for it to be more, and that the bottom of the cups have kind of folded over time. The left more than the right, and I don't really know why. It still looks good on, so I don't let that bother me. Also, the last thing; I really wish they would make it in a H-cup, because I've grown out of this and need replacements!!

It's a bra that I got on a whim when I was going in between sizes and couldn't afford something of more quality(as I would usually stick to Ewa Michalak or Comexim). And it did it's job, and still does. It's a bra that does the job when I can't afford anything more and it's comfortable in a lot of ways, even if it's not the proper size for me.

I love the way this bra is made, I do feel that the band is made on the larger size. I truly need a 30H or 30HH in this bra but Freya does not make that in this style. This bra give your the perfect round shape and cleavage without padding and keeps your nipples from showing. Also the under wire is shorter under the arms which is perfect for me and an issue I have with most bras. The center gore of this bra is also lower if you want to wear lower cut shirts.

I bought this bra as it was cheap and I needed a plain black bra. Due to Freya's stretchy bands, I sized down to a 32, which was perfect. However, the GG cups are slightly small for me, I get slight quadboobing - but as it isn't too much, and doesn't cause discomfort it doesn't really bother me. It's the perfect black tshirt bra, and if Freya made this in a 32H i would definitely buy it!

Hand delivered by Lou3134 this afternoon.
So glad I got to try this bra!
Lovely round shape and uplift.
Sadly I'm a little squished together quadboobed, so really need a bigger cup.
This style doesn't come in an H unfortunately.
This 32 band is comfortably tight and supportive, though a little stiff.
I have a bit of squish out from the band, as my 29" ribs are 'padded out' to about 34 inches at the moment. But as Linda the bra lady says "think fit, not flab".
The other problem I have is that where the top of the cups join to the straps, there's a little digging into my arms.
Before I consider whether or not to re-list this bra,
I'd like to see how it looks under a few things.

Bought to replace the only bra that I have ever worn out before I grew out if it!
Needs little explanation really, the deco is just amazing! Sadly I was losing weight, so this bra didn't fit before I wore it much.

I love this bra! I find it hard to get cleavage with my low, full on bottom, far apart boobs, but somehow this manages!
Cups fit fine, are soft and comfortable. Band is firm and stays put. Underwires not too high, don't rub. Great lift and shape.
My only complaint are the straps. The rope like deign has frayed after only a few washes and wears. I end up with stretchy string stuff coming off the straps which need regular trimming.
However, minor complaint for such an incredible bra. Highly recommend. Only wish I'd bought more colours!

Gives excellent support and shape, and very comfortable to wear. Even doing a physical job, I've never had this bra slip or squeak on me. The band does stretch, my underbust measurement is 34", and I can still pull it away from my back on the loosest hook.
