I have really soft boobs and, coupled with the fact that this is about two cup sizes too small, I can get some major quad boob if I don't readjust regularly. On the other hand, the plunge is perfect and it makes my breasts look awesome under a shirt.
The band started fraying a lot. It's weird and I don't know what caused it.
It's fairly comfortable otherwise. It doesn't poke my sides or anything, and since it's totally smooth with no lace it doesn't irritate my skin anywhere. I like this bra a lot, I just wish I had gotten it in my size. It's the only molded bra I like.

I love the shape this bra gives my FoB breasts. One is a 34GG and the other is a 34H. So I have quadboob on one of the breast. I spill over too much.

If this bra works with your shape, it's excellent!
If it doesn't fight too much with your shape, it's still pretty darn good. (This used to be me, but I've lost weight & found that sister sizing down didn't work for me - the band gets smaller but the wires are just as wide so they end up way under my armpits.)
Pros: It's a classic beige, smooth under 100% of tight/thin anything (as long as there's no gaping), well made, attractive, comes in a variety of colors (black is much tighter in the band than the beige), great gore height for low cut tops.
Cons: Only 2 hooks (which is too thin on a shape like this one) and comes up quite high/tall on the sides, wires are wide and cups are shallow at the bottom.

After getting xl implants I was in need of a very good, supportive bra. It was very important that it not only be comfortable but that the fit was correct and the band do the heavy lifting not the straps. After asking which bra would fit that criteria for daily use I decided on the 4234 model. I wasn't disappointed.
Everything I was told about this bra was true. It's doesn't poke, the under wires sit correctly on me and do not bother my armpit even after hours of wear. It looks amazing under clothes. Its so comfy that I don't even ... feel like I am wearing a bra and forget that I have it on.
You can imagine after having implants that I have done a fair amount of research on bras and correct fit. I want to protect my investments so well made, well fitting bras that are supportive but very wearable is a must.
Before implants I always wore a 36(US sizing) band. I was also wearing a B cup as I didn't really fill out a C cup due to breastfeeding and deflation that followed. I have since taken very careful measurements and recorded them during healing. After learning how to properly measure and properly fit into a bra I ordered only one, this one, as a starting point, in a 34GG(UK sizing) which is equal to a 34J(US sizing).
I was scared, good bras are expensive but a good investment as well. I worried that a 34 band would feel too tight. I was used to wearing a 36 which fit me ok, but struggled all day long adjusting and pulling up or down depending on which way I moved, and with the band so loose it didn't support anything. What I realize now was that I was part of the pack of women who wore an ill-fitting incorrectly sized bra.
The band on this bra was tight at first. With it latched on the last hooks I felt a little constricted but I knew that was partly due to being so used to such a loose band. At first I wore it only a few hours and switched back to my sports bra. After only a few, couple of hour wears, it now fits perfectly but hasn't stretched where I would need to change to the middle set of fasteners.
The quick lowdown:
The band: while initially tight has stretched slightly with a few wears. I can now wear it for hours and forget that I am wearing a bra. The stretch is minimal so don't expect it to be loose after a few wears, the band strength holds up nicely with wear continuing to be very supportive and staying in one spot no matter which way you turn or bend.
The straps: They are not padded but are very comfortable and on the wider side. They do adjust nicely after the initial change in position. They are wider set. On me they sit slightly to the inside of my armpit. If you like a more central set strap then this bra may feel uncomfortable to you like you need to move them towards your neck more. I don't mind it.
The cup: Molded and very comfortable. Seamless and gives great shape and look under anything I have worn so far. I don't fall out of them even if I am bending over.
I couldn't be happier as this bra fits like a glove. Nothing moves all day long, I don't have to adjust anything ever. I forget I am wearing it. Its very supportive and not only lifts but gives a nice rounded shape that I prefer.

I would probably need a 32H or 30HH in this bra but because it only goes to a GG I tried the 34GG. It fits okay but feels looser than I would like, the back doesn't ride up. My breasts are close together which I think is the biggest issue, this bra is definitely designed for smaller boobs and they would probably have to make the center gore a little taller to keep large breasts apart. Because it is not the right size I have to move my boobs back in place every thirty minutes.

I am still trying to find my correct bra, but this was not for me. It was too shallow on the bottom and too big on the top. The shallowness cause the bottom to wrinkle on the inside edges.
The straps felt like they were just barely on my shoulders. (I think due to them being set sort of wide, rather than them being too loose)
I think it is just the wrong size/shape for me, but is otherwise a nice bra. It did hold my breasts more highly and securely than the ill-fitting ones I have been wearing.
The lace at the bottom wasn't scratchy per se, but was a little uncomfortable.

When I initially purchased this bra, my measurements were more correct for this size, and it fit very comfortably with the "lift and squish" cleavage and rounded shape I had come to like in a bra shape.
After about 6 months of wear with swoop and scoop, migrated tissue has made these bras less than perfect, as I am now a 34H. They are still comfy, but I have some issues with quadboobing or lacking support.
A GREAT transitional bra for ladies who are leaving Victoria's Secret styles for the proper or bigger sizes.

I LOVE Decos ...however they are a bit inconsistent in sizing across colors. I have a Taylor in a 34G that is a bit small in the cup, so I thought I would try a GG, however I don't quite fill the cups at the top. GREAT all purpose bra, smooth lines under t-shirts.

I love the molded cup for headlight prevention and smoothness under clothes. I usually wear a 34 but this style is woefully off-sized. I have it in a 32 and it's still too big. The cup is almost right on the larger breast and a little big on the smaller; the 32GG (a cup size smaller by volume) fits great. It's not va-va-voom on me, but it is practical and reasonably attractive. I have beige and black and both fit the same although the black measures out a little smaller when stretched; it hasn't been worn as much.
The straps on the nude ones are curled; I expect the previous owner machine washed them.
It has 2 hooks; I'd rather it had 3-4.
It comes up awfully high between my boobs & armpits. It's a little better in the 32GG but still seems unusually wide/tall on the sides.

I first tried this bra in January 2012 and have been in love with it every since (even though the cups are too small, I own 3 different versions). Provides amazing cleavage and support. Freya stretchy.
