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!

This bra has been heavily altered, by taking in the cup height (and therefore changing the shape) and moving the straps inward. It sort of has has the shape of a vintage strapless pin up bra now and it works like a charm. Perfect
Beforehand, after a couple times of wearing the bra, it started to fold at the bottom which changes the shape and support completely. Also the straps and the top of the cups were digging into my armpits, because the cup height was massive for my short roots, Now those problems are solved too!

The band of this bra is a lot tighter than my other 28G and 28GG Decos...probably more of a true 28 band as I measure about 29" underbust and had to wear this with an extender. The cups are also odd on me; they're very, very shallow so I get a weird wrinkle at the bottom of the cup. I'm not super projected and I'm FOT, so this isn't usually an issue for me with other bras. I think the wrinkle is also caused by the fact that there's no underwire, so there's nothing to line up underneath my breast tissue and keep the cup from wrinkling. To ... combat the wrinkling I wear the bra low on my ribcage with the straps loosened, so that the band sits about an inch or so below my breasts. This definitely isn't how it's supposed to be worn, but it eliminates the wrinkle issue (since it pulls the cups taught) and definitely does give really great cleavage from the front once I scoop everything into place. The side profile is okay. I probably could use a cup size bigger in this as I do get a little bit of quadboob. It's not super supportive and I have to readjust a few times throughout the day, since there's no underwire to keep everything in place.
Overall, this is a good bra for cleavage, and would be great if you have very shallow breasts. It's not super supportive but it's definitely comfortable, it would make a good bra for sleeping or wearing around the house.

Needed a wirefree bra after breast augmentation. This was my first bra in my new size It fit better when it first arrived, but after I broke it in and washed it a few times the bottom of the cup wrinkles. It's not noticeable under clothing, or even undressed unless I point it out.
The straps are slightly far apart for me, and the clips on the straps have a tendency to slip so I have to shorten the straps and pull them toward my neck to get rid of the wrinkling at the bottom of the cup.
The problem seems to be a ... shape issue, not a size issue. I am FoT, close set, have average roots and a good bit of projection. Plus the angle at my IMF is close to 90 degrees, which seems to be the source of most of the problem. I think this bra would be better for someone who has a wide root and is FoB or has shallow breasts.
Keeping this bra despite the wrinkling issue because my plastic surgeon doesn't want me in an underwire just yet and it also gives killer cleavage

Bias disclaimer: I far prefer underwires, but cannot wear an underwire for at least 6 weeks after my boob job.
Fit pretty well when I first got it; the material was stiff enough to force my FoT breasts into the bottom of the cup. After a few washes the material softened and my breasts will no longer conform to the cup, creating a wrinkle at the bottom of the cups. This can detract from the bra's ability to support, though it can be (mostly) remedied by shortening the straps and pulling them slightly toward my neck.
The gore does not touch my sternum at all, however this IS a ... softcup bra and that is to be expected. If I press the gore to my sternum the wrinkle goes away and the fit is lovely, so I don't believe this is a size issue. I tbink if I sized down there wouldn't be enough room for my projection. I think this bra would be better for someone with shallow breasts.
I also noticed I have to adjust the straps frequently; the clips on the straps are loose enough to easily adjust, but they are also loose enough to slip as I move around and go about my day.
I would recommend this to someone who cannot wear an underwire or has shallow breasts. Otherwise the OIG effect gets annoying.

Wow, I am so impressed with this bra! It holds up my boobs even better than underwired ones, due to the design. After my initial test wear, I just kept it on and wore it the rest of the day. It was so comfortable I sometimes forgot I was even wearing a bra! However, I can understand people complaining about chafing by the band. I did not experience this myself, but the lower edge of the band is quite rough and sharp to the touch. Another downside is that you can't insert extra padding in case of asymmetry. Still, if this came in all sorts of pretty colours and designs, I would totally buy them!

Finally a wireless bra that fits!!! The band is much tighter than the wired deco and is sooo much more comfortable for me. I had previously tried the 28FF (my size in the wired deco) but this fits so much better!
Fyi, this is $40.50 on figleaves.com (ships to US in approx. 1-1.5 weeks) while it's $58 on all the US bra sites I ended up getting it for $34 from figleaves since they had a sale.

This is too small. I got a 28G because that's my current size in the regular version of the Deco (28GG most everywhere else right now). The regular Deco runs large in the cup and since they don't make a 28GG in this version, I was hoping that it would fit. But no... The cup runs true to size, like some of the Deco fashion colors that I've tried before (namely, the Ashlee and Taylor), which means that I'm out of luck .
Trying this on, the center gore is nowhere near where it should be and the weight of my breasts is pushing the bra down a bit. I would have to go up 1-2 cup sizes in order for it to fit. On another note, the band is very firm and tight, which is very nice.
I also realize that it's been a while since I last had a wireless bra, and I miss the underwire. Go figure...
