OMG! I couldn't be happier!! I finally found a bra that makes my boobs touch each other! I didn't think this would ever happen anymore! But look. At. This! I am freaking out about it! https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt=":D" />
I am really surprised by how this deco fits and how it feels! I've tried couple of standard decos with wires and while trying them I was so impressed, then after 1 hour I couldn't stand bra on my body. Was painful all over the arms due to its big and wide cups. However, nothing like that occurs in this one! I was sceptical to try it but decided to give it a go as it was in decent price as for used one. The band is snug, I can easily close it on loosest set but for more comfort I've used extra row from the extender. The band ...feels really comfy, especially that I'm very annoyed recently about everything and nothing (that is why today I've decided to put on sale my loved fortnight and other lace longline bra). The strap placement is not very bad, acceptable and doesn't bother me but would prefer slightly narrower. Cups are on the wide side, my boobs escape to the side a little but still I get decent cleavage! I have quite narrow but not extremely roots, and I find the width 13cm to be perfect, but this bra does well with wider cups. Definitely this bra is way better than Gossard! No quad boobs and no empty space. Succes achieved ! I must truly admit - this is one of the comfiest bras I have ever tried ! I wished Freya offers more colours in this style https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Read more 144 more words
This was the second bra I got from SFYS during my trip to Toronto.
I've had the chance to wear this several times. First of all, this fits me pretty well. The band is snug enough on the middle hooks, the cups don't gape, and the straps aren't too widely spaced. The bridge of the bra is reinforced and has no stretch, but the rest of the band (past the side seams) is nicely stretchy and comfy to wear. The cups have contoured padding in them, so there's a decently thick layer of foam over the nipples, but the foam thins out towards the straps. This gives a ...really nice, lifted shape under clothing. The straps are thinner than anything else I've seen from Freya, which is intriguing to me, but doesn't bother me personally.
The only problem I have with this bra is that over the course of a few hours, because the bridge is non-stretch, it starts to dig into my skin uncomfortably. The weight of my breasts also creates some creasing/collapsing in the bottom of the cups, but this doesn't bother me.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with this bra, and will continue to wear it because of the awesome shape it gives me. Read more 96 more words
I'm a big fan of the regular Deco bras, but I struggle with the fit and find I'm between sizes in it. In this soft cup version I found the fit to be more true to size - my go-to size of a 28G works well. The band is tighter than a normal Deco, which is great for me as normal Decos are always too loose.
The support is not fantastic, which considering the construction is to be expected, but it's great for wearing round the house/popping out to the shops if you want something more comfortable. I know a lot of people were frustrated by the limited size ...range (D-G cups), but I don't think the bra would be supportive enough for a large cup size. I'm dubious it would work even for a 38G, which is the largest size available and considerably bigger than my 28G.
Compared to any other soft cup, the shape is great. It gives the perfectly rounded shape of the usual Deco, instead of the pointy/droopy shape soft cups normally give. It also gives a great cleavage, but in a 'boobs pressed together' way that can be sweaty and uncomfortable when it's hot outside.
The only thing I would really want to change about this bra is to make the band slightly wider. It seems like it has more work to do without wires and as a result it can dig in a bit. This isn't a major problem for me, but again I think it might be more of a problem in the larger sizes.
Overall, I love this bra for when I need something more comfortable than a normal bra but don't want to compromise on shape. I don't know of any other bra in the full bust market that offers this! Read more 189 more words
Edit: the band of this bra is very uncomfortable, so I returned it.
I'm so glad I tried out both the 30D and 30DD. I thought the 30D was a decent fit, and that I might need to get a C cup for more cleavage. But the 30DD is perfect for me. Not much cleavage for my shallow wide breasts, but the cups are great, they're wide enough and there's no gaping. This bra looks amazing under a tee, I've never had a non wired bra that gave me thus much projection. It looks just like a padded wired bra, or maybe even better now that I'm finally finding my true size https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" /> I'll need to wear this for a day to decide if it's as comfy as it feels when just putting it on.
This is a really hard bra to measure because of the lack of wire. I would say that it fits pretty well for a 28e, but I am so used to wearing wires at this point this bra feels weird. I think the shape is great for wide and shallow types with little boob separation. I got great cleavage in this, and now understand why people love the deco. The regular deco didn't work for me (I'm def not full on top). There is a fair amount of padding in it (by my standards) which contributes to the idea that this bra is just not for me
I think this bra is the bee's knees in concept; I just wish it were a little nicer. For a wireless, the shape, support, and cleavage are fantastic. I love the plain, almost-androgynous look of the bra, if that makes sense. I wish I had tried the 28G for comparison: if I tighten the straps too much, there is minimal quadboob on my larger side, but it's not noticeable under clothing and it does help the cleavage, doesn't it? Because it's wireless, the weight of your breasts does tend to create a fold in the bottom of the cup, but I don't think that can ...be helped; similarly, the gore will not touch your sternum, but it can't.
The main issue I've had with the bra is that the inside seams get terribly itchy and uncomfortable if the bra is worn for more than a few hours. I'm hoping it'll improve with time, but for right now I only wear the bra when I'm lounging around the house or when I'm going out-out and need epic cleavage.
I appreciate that the band is much firmer than the regular plunge Deco, which I've tried in charcoal and black. It's more of a true 28.
Edit: I sent this bra back to Bravissimo to have the inside seams investigated for a fault. Apparently they were abnormal, so I've just received a replacement. It's certainly more comfortable, but not the godsend I was hoping for. This is such a disappointment to me because I love the bra's look, shape, and support. Hopefully it'll improve once it's been washed a few times.... Read more 162 more words
I only wanted to try this out bc I had heard it had pretty tight strap. I'm no fan of Freya and do not have any other myself, so I can't compare, but it wasn't tight enough for me. I had to put it straight to the tightest hook, which i felt to be really shame as I otherwise really liked the bra. But this is my only disappointment with this bra.
This was also my first soft cup ever, so I can't compare to that. Simply said, it fitted as well and felt as good as my favorite moulded wire bra. Deco soft cup felt light yet sturdy ...all over. Many has told there was itching, but I didn't face such even that I'm quite sensitive. It was soft and lovely. I liked the fact that there was only two column hooks as I don't enjoy feeling like being in a corset. This bra sits tight enough to work on those two. Even shoulder straps were more narrow than the regular Deco straps, which I happen to strongly dislike for I always aim to anything soft.
The cups weren't as pushy as the original Deco does have, they did give pretty plunge cleavage (such like always are too squishy from sides to my liking). This bra works well on wide rooted and somewhat shallow without much projection breasts. The look is effective in all of its simplicity. Read more 129 more words
The cups fit perfect but the band is too tight. If I add an extender the cup does not longer fit properly. Also the straps are too far apart so they fall off my shoulder. The band use to fit snug but after I had a baby, 14 months ago, my ribcage is two inches wider. Also Freya Deco cups run big, I am 30E or 32DD now and the cups of a 28e in the Deco fit perfect when I should fit into a 28f or 30e cup. I think a person who is taller or who has wider shoulders would fit in this bra ...because the straps are farther apart which makes the cups gap a bit. I have a Freya Deco convertible strapless and when I place the straps closer to the middle, it has that option, the cups do not gap but I still had to wear a 30dd instead of a 30e like I am supposed to. If you wear a 28f in Panache I think this bra from Freya in 28E will fit you perfect. The band use to fit good when my ribcage was 27 inches wide. Now that my ribcage measures 29 inches this is too tight. I barely wore this bra because when my size use to be 28e this use to gap a bit. I saved it because I knew after pregnancy my breast will be at least a cup size bigger. The cup fits now but unfortunately the band is too tight, the ribcage also gets wider after pregnancy. For some reason Freya Deco cups gap when you add an extender too, even if you go down a cup size. Other bra bands do not have that problem, I wonder why though? Maybe the Freya Deco straps are farther apart unlike other brands and also run a cup size bigger than other brands. Which also explains why the Freya Deco convertible strapless has two options for the straps, more closer to the middle or further apart. So far the convertible Deco it's my favorite Freya and it fits perfent in a 30dd. I removed the underwire in the convertible Freya Deco because I hate underwires. I was hoping the wireless Freya Deco would work out for me because I hate underwires but it did not work out. In the brand Royce I wear a 32dd. The brand Royce has a tighter band than Freya and the cups run smaller than Freya also. Read more 311 more words
