This bra is said to run generous in the band, which I didn't find immediately, but after some months I was fastening it on the tightest hook. Perhaps I need to go down a back size?
I have wide, high-set, shallow-profile, separate breasts. This bra held them up (almost straight up) and was the most comfortable plunge bra I've tried. No poking, no quadra-breast. Rounded cups fit amazingly. The mold gives nipple modesty (yes, modesty in a plunge bra!).
Edit: after several months of ownership I will again attest to the stretchiness of the band.

The back is likely stretched out slightly, I close it on the middle hooks vs the first set in a 34FF Deco. But otherwise, it's perfect.
1 - It really is a nice t-shirt bra.
2 - Nothing escapes all day.
3 - It's narrow enough in the straps so they aren't directly in my armpits and poking all day.
4 - The underwire isn't painful, which is a frequent issue for me.
My only gripe is the 2 hook back. 3 or 4 hooks people, 3 or 4. 2 is pointless past a B cup, so even with the band tight enough that I can't get 2 fingers under it, it creeps up because hey, big boobs pulling down eventually wins.
But, the rest of it is so comfortable, so I just pull it down in back a few times a day.
Overall, it's a little plain, but it is a t-shirt bra. But would it hurt to give this a nice little pinstripe detail or some cute simple pattern instead of just big and beige?

Great to wear under t-shirts as the seamless cup doesn't show underneath. The band is a bit tight compared to other 34 bands in the Freya line so if you're in between sizes, definitely try on the higher band size to see if it will be more comfortable.
The cups encase my breasts nicely, though my larger breast is in between an F and FF so I do get slight quadboobing after scooping and swooping, but it fits my smaller breast perfectly. The support and uplift is great, like most of the other Decos, and gives a nice rounded shape to my wide-set breasts.
I wish there were 3 hooks per column as opposed to 2 as it doesn't hold the weight of my breasts as well as it should. I find that throughout the course of the day my breasts pull the front of the bra down so it sits lower than my IMF and so it does get uncomfortable if I don't readjust.
Overall I really like this bra and recommend checking it out.

Let me just say that I'm totally going to buy this bra IN THE CORRECT SIZE for me! I just found out I was a FF and I was basically flying out of this bra and readjusting all the time.
I feel it hasn't stretched out much since I've had it which means it has lots of life left.
It's pretty and basic.
Great for low cut tops and dresses.
Makes your boobs looks awesome!
Cons: Back clasp can get a little uncomfortable but it might just be me. I have always been sensitive to clasps and shirt tags, etc.

This bra is beautiful and so comfortable! I received it through trueandco.com free home try on program. My normal bra size is a US 34F and a UK 34E, the bra I tried on was labeled as a 34F in both UK and US sizing. The F cup size fit me perfectly, my problem was that the 34 band was too big. It was only just snug when put on the tightest hooks. I've ordered the bra in a 32F and am hoping that it will be the perfect fit! Every woman should own at least one of these bras!

I purchased this bra about a month ago. Since then I seem to have changed sizes, as the bra no longer fits properly. This was my first properly fitting bra (at the time of purchase, anyway.)
I loved this bra when I first purchased it. I felt supported and liked the shape. The straps are three quarters of an inch wide and have a little stretch for movement, but held firmly. They also do not loosen during the day due to the texture of the material.
The underwires do not go up high into the armpit as other bras I ... have worn, which doesn't usually bother me anyway, but is a nice feature. The cups are set closer together than other bras I've worn. This bra has only two hooks to each row instead of three, but that was not an issue with this bra for me. There is also a bit of reinforcing mesh at the wing (I think that's what it's called) of the bra.
The craftsmanship is very nice, especially compared to what I was used to before.
There are three small ribbon bows on this bra- one in the center gore and one on the base of each strap in the front. There is also a nice scalloped edge woven onto the edges of the straps and base of the bra. The decorations are subtle, and though I would have preferred a colored or patterned bra, it still looks nice in the beige color.
When I purchased the bra, the woman at the salon wanted me to wear a 36 G. I have a decent amount of back fat, so this wasn't holding me securely enough to my liking. I asked for the next size band down and felt much better. I was comfortable on the longest set of hooks and the bra seemed to support me well enough.
Now I am most comfortable wearing it on the tightest set of hooks, but the cups are too small even when wearing it on the first set (quadboob effect.) Since I have noticed the size change, the cups seem to want to slide down so that the cups fold over a bit, so it does not shape correctly anymore. I assume this is a common symptom of having an incorrectly fitting bra.
I am not sure what happened- maybe the band stretched out as it was broken in, or perhaps I've been getting better a the scoop and swoop technique. Unfortunately I did not measure the bra when I purchased it, so I have nothing to compare it to at the moment.
I have hand washed it once and made sure to wait at least a day between uses to let the bra recover, so I doubt poor care is the issue.
In all, I loved this bra when it fit, and would definitely consider getting another in the correct size.

This bra is my favorite bra for lift. Not many bras give me lift so it gets a 5star rating. I also love the position of the straps although alot people do not like it for that reason. Also, the straps are fairly wide which I also prefer. This bra runs a little large in the band. Very comfortable most of day however like the majority of my bras tend to be a less comfortable by end of work day.

This was my first purchase back when I was still figuring out my correct size (I measure 33 underbust, and now wear both 32G/34FF depending on the bra). It is about one cup size too small.. I hear a lot of people say the Deco runs big in the cup, but it seems pretty true to size to me.
It does not look that bad, because of the plunge, and I'm keeping it to wear under clothes that need amazing cleavage. If I had to exchange it, I would go for the 32G because halfway through my 10 hour work-day I have to go from the loosest hook to the middle hook on the band (and readjust the cups once or twice in the bathrooms).. anybody want to swap?

Got this pre-owned, and I'm in love! For me there is just the teensiest bit of quadboobing, but this is honestly the best fitting bra I've ever owned. I feel like I could sleep in it! It has a great lift, too.
