    I can't with this bra anymore. It's too shallow for me and it's just not comfortable.
    I know lots of women love the Deco, I'm not one of them.

    • It might just be in these photos, but the band is sitting very low in the back - is it still too shallow if you yank the back band up higher?

      I ask because strapless bras have always done that to me (even when they should fit, they seem really shallow unless the band sits as high or a fraction higher than my normal bras). Full disclosure, I usually get someone else to pull the band up in the back, because it is super awkward - but I do find it helps maximise usable depth.

      That's actually a really good question!
      It is low in the photos. If I'm actually going to try to wear it, I have my husband hook it and pull it up. It still feels like it's smashing me though, and the wires always slide down.
      I put it on by myself yesterday just for a couple of pictures. I didn't even try to pull it up since I can't by myself and it was horribly humid yesterday.

    • I had terrible results from the one Deco I tried, so I hear you there. Why do strapless bras have to be so hard? :-(

    • Super late post, but I was told we had similar shapes. I just got this bra& stumbled on your review too! I have to wear the straps or clear ones for the same reason. It doesn't sit in my IMF without the straps tightened all the way. Then once I do it fits as good as a strapless can I think. Not technical a strapless for me, but I'm ok with using clear straps!

    I *love* this strapless bra! I had been struggling with a Fantasie strapless (4530) that was too big post weight loss and that was cut like a traditional strapless bra (i.e., a high center gore and complete coverage). This Freya is MUCH better, and not just because of proper sizing.

    While the band is a bit snug (my ribcage measures 28" and I bought a 28 band), I have always found that it is best to wear the smallest size possible in the band when purchasing a strapless bra (there is nothing worse than slippage throughout the night!). I also *love* the plunge neckline and the lift it gives my breast. Absolutely amazing. I can't believe a strapless bra makes my boobs look so sexy!

    This is my first properly fitting bra, and the only one that fits besides Comexim. I have owned this bra for 2 years in both colors. Despite my underbust measuring 24.5 inches snugly and this being a 28, it stays up just fine. The reason for this is the firmness of the band; after 2 years it is quite difficult to stretch it to 27 inches. I failed to measure it when new, but it feels pretty much the same to me. The cups, gore, and straps are all too wide(set) causing me to feel just a bit constricted and not as free/mobile as I would ... prefer, but I do not mind as they are all to a minor degree. The majority of the time I do not notice any of the issues. What I really enjoy is the seamlessness of it and its invisibility under clothing. Manages to have barely any to no gaping on my smaller side.

    It's strapless and seamless so that is why I will still repurchase it after finding Comexim.

    Thanks for Reading! 😊

    The fit of this bra is a bit strange on me. When using the straps the fit is great. When attempting to use it as a strapless, however, it's not quite right. There is wrinkling at the bottom of the cups, toward the sides. When putting it on by just bending over, shimmying into the bra, and fastening it it’s mostly alright. With any manual adjustment, however, the bottom wrinkling becomes more apparent. It looks very similar to what snowflake mentioned in her review of the 34F. The depth seems great, but the cups are pretty wide, and do stretch a bit more when the band stretches. ... The cups are also pretty tall, which may contribute to my problems with it, being bottom-heavy and having a petite torso. The cups on the 28E were too small, and the bands in both the 30DD and the 30E were just too big. The 28FF didn’t wrinkle in the same way, but there was clearly extra room in the cups. Fastening this bra on the middle hook is the most comfortable, so I don’t *think* it’s an issue of the band being too small (for reference, my ribcage measures ~25.5 inches holding a tape measure fairly comfortably, and I do like a fairly tight band). I can only guess I’m between cup sizes and/or this model isn’t ideal for me. I’ll still wear it, though likely primarily with the straps.

    As far as the details of the bra itself are concerned, the cups are “molded”, but much more flexible than anticipated. It gives a great rounded, smooth shape under clothing, as would be expected of a deco. There are several different places where the straps can be attached (though I personally find the farthest attachment in the front to be too far apart for my frame), so there are lots of strap placement possibilities. The silicone gripper lining on the band helps to keep the bra in place well. It does seem to have a lower center gore than many strapless bras I’ve seen, which is nice for showing a little cleavage while staying supported. It seems like a great bra, and a lot of people love it, but doesn’t seem to be ideal for me.

    The Deco Strapless is way wider than the regular Deco, which is a disappointment. The band was so tight that after a few hours of wear I started to feel like the wires were bruising my ribs. But most strapless bras are wide, and I like how comfortable this one is at the gore (doesn't stab my very close set, centre full breasts), so I'm keeping it (at least for now, before I find a better one).

    So far this is the best fitting strapless bra I own. It's almost good. The band runs tight for Freya, that was a surprise. It is a very firm band that has not stretched in the couple of months I've owned it. I can fasten it on the loosest hook, but it's not comfortable. I do have an extender I use on the tightest hook to add about 1/4" of an inch of length to the band. Otherwise, I fill the cups nicely, I *almost* quadboob out of the left side, but not enough to be a nuisance. It stays put ... through the entire day. The strangest thing about this to me is the bottom of the side wire/boning that is in the band... it tends to curve under and dig into my ribs and it gets painful if I wear the bra for long periods of time.

    UPDATE; I don't think I s&s'd properly when I wore this. Today, this would be far too small and too shallow for me. That said, I haven't really found a better strapless option to date, so if I continue to strike out, I might go back to the Deco strapless in a larger cup size.

    I'd tried the @Panache porcelain strapless as well as the Bravissimo Contour to no avail. The Deco Strapless was the only one projected enough for me even though the regular Deco gaped on the top. I am even fullness and average on the shallow/projected scale with wideish roots. I quad perhaps just the slightest and the band does get a bit uncomfortable after wearing it all day but it's overall quite comfortable even though the wires don't go out as far as I'd like. It's seamless and amazing under any outfit and never falls down.

    Overall I love this bra and I'm so happy to have a strapless option that is comfortable and flattering. Unfortunately after only wearing it a handful of times I believe I have to start putting the band on tighter hook(s). It is definitely a bit too big for my frame, but unlike the freya deco convertible t shirt bra and the freya deco plunge t shirt bra it seems wearable. I may have to take the band in if it stretches too much but I can live with that.

    I love the amount of coverage it gives. Enough that I won't nip slip if the bra slides down ... a bit but not too much. However I do feel like the band is huge for my frame. A strapless bra band should be bigger but I don't need it quite this big. Unfortunately, with some of my clothes it shows under my armpits. It is comfortable though and that doesn't seem to be more than a style issue.

    I would absolutely recommend trying this bra :)

    Update: well after trying on the bra again to take pictures I found that it now fits best on the tightest hook. And of course being a 28 I can't just buy freya a band size down. I'm learning to sew so I won't mind having to take in the band, but what worries me is some puckering at the bottom of the cups... From what I have read I think it could've been caused by the band being too loose... But I am afraid that it means I'm not filling out the bottom of the cups although it seems to fit great so I am not sure... You can see how it seems to fit and that issue in my pictures. I hope that with a good wash it'll straighten out a bit and I can see what happens when I wear it tighter.

    • I realize this review is a year old, but just in case you still exist: I'm pretty sure the wrinkling at the bottom of the cup means it's too shallow for you. your boobs are pressing the cup down, looking for more space.

    I was not happy at all with this bra. I know for a fact that my band size is actually 29inches, so its recommended that I buy a 28 to account for later stretching. I normally buy 30 because its difficult to find 28s and they don't stretch too much, but for a strapless, i know i will need the support. But this one was just difficult. The bra was really tight, even on the last hooks, so I think it runs a little small. It also tries to flatten the breasts with the shape of the cups. Rather than accounting for the full bust people with a 28F have, it is shaped to bring the breast up, or in my case, into the middle. No matter how much I fiddled with it, my breasts were not even and would not stay even remotely in the cups. For the less busty, this is great. Not for the busty!

    The first strapless bra that actually fit and didn't give me quadboob! However, my left breast is smaller than my right and I got a folding in the bottom of the left cup where I didn't fill it completely. I only had this bra a couple of months before I migrated into the next cup size:(

    The band is extremely firm and becomes a bit uncomfortable after more than 5 or 6 hours of wear. I'm sure with time the band would stretch out and become more comfortable, but before I had the bra long enough to get comfortable in it, my breasts grew and the cups became too small.
