The band size on this is much tighter than the Deco bra, so I'll have to wear this with a bra extender. The cups are similar in shape, but I think that they seem half a size smaller than with the regular Deco. This may possibly be because the center gore comes up higher in this version. When it comes to the strapless aspect, it stays up and still provides a nice shape. I also like the fact that this bra gives you some choice in how close together you want to place the straps.

Cups filled perfectly. No gap at the top (unlike the regular freya deco in my usual size- 28FF) and absolutely no spillage. (Usually I can only get one or the other.)
Nice and tight band, but not too tight. I might need to go to the middle hook if I was to wear it strapless just to be on the safe side.
Totally comfortable. No "adjusting" as the day goes on. It's my favourite fitting bra right now, and also my first strapless bra that fits properly. I can't say if it stretched out yet because I haven't worn it all that much. It's my only strapless so ... I don't want to wear it out before I need to use it as strapless. I'll probably get another before summer so that I have a good tank top option bra (adjustable straps, and I will probably hook up some clear straps if needed.)
This bra no longer fits, I lost 5 pounds and 2-3 cup sizes (right when I was starting to build a nice base of bras to wear too....)
I repurchased this bra in a 28F when I realized I had lost some breast volume, and when I got it it fit perfectly. Again, no gaps or spillage. The fit didn't last for long, and now it is too big. I still wear it when I need a strapless bra with my dresses that have skinny straps, I just use those clear bra straps. It is not ideal, but it works for right now, and the only way to notice the incorrect fit is when the dress is off- so it works for now since my dress is usually on... https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
I plan on repurchasing this bra again, I am just trying to decide between a 28E and a 28DD. Time for me to start comparing other bra measurements!

I hadn't had a strapless bra in about a year before purchasing this one, so I'm glad to have the staple once again. I had heard that the strapless runs a bit smaller in the cup than the regular Deco so I got it in a 28FF while my Deco Plunge is a 28F.
This bra fits me well half the time, but gaps terribly the other half of the time. With straps, no matter how they are (criss-cross, normal, wide, etc) this bra fits perfectly. Without the straps, it still fits perfectly, unless I move around a lot. Then it looks like this bra is about 2 cup ... sizes too big.
This bra is extremely tight in the band, so do NOT size down in the band like you would for a regular Deco. If you are between sizes I'd advise going with the bigger one. I found that the wires are a bit too wide for me as well.
The only other complaint I have about this bra is that it makes my chest seem very wide. I prefer the look where they are projected outward, but because this is mainly worn for its cross-able straps this isn't that much of a problem.

This is a great underwear essential. I tried both 28F and 28FF as I went down a cup size in the standard 'Deco' bra, but the 28FF in the strapless was a better fit. It's totally smooth under clothing and a very useful bra as it's multiway!

The Deco strapless is pretty much the only strapless bra that works for me. It's a pretty plain looking bra; you're not buying it for looks. I has two removable straps that can be done up in many variations. There are two sets of hooks for the straps in the front and two in the back. The band is very firm and much tighter than the regular Deco band. I wish strapless bras came without the silicone strip as my skin is very sensitive and after a while it bothers me; the band is tight enough that it would stay up without it. The bra is pretty much invisible with smooth cups.

band is really snug, if not adjusted properly, digs into left rib painfully.
straps are disgusting and scratchy, just go strapless if possible.
gore sits comfortable, underwires encapsulate boob completely
can't feel the silicone linings at all (which is pretty amazing)
fits on loosest hooks
fits left boob perfectly, right boob is slightly too loose & needs some padding to equalise appearance & reduce gaping.
overall, pretty good https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />

It's a plane and boring strapless t-shirt bra: molded cups and about no decoration. But this is really a must-have for summer dresses. The color is very nice for my pale skin. The band is very snug and quite wide. I think 26 band ladies could wear it. It has 3 silicon stripes ( 2 for the upper part and 1 for the lower part of the band).
The cups give very round shape. They are not very deep at the wires, but they are a little deeper, then Cleo's bras ( I mean Neve/Koko). The cups are a little bit closed on top and the gore is rather high, so it's not a plunge bra, but sometimes I can wear it with V-shaped neckline.
I've received the bra without any straps, and I'm going to wear it strapless, but it has different position to attach the straps.

slightly too big, band is pretty tight, even after a year I still wear with an extender (so it was really tight when I just got it, takes time to break in, but again, I dont wear it very often-leaves marks). But I like the support it gives me.

Oh my. This is unfortunately a cup size too small for me. The weight of my breasts pulls the whole shebang down my torso. The band holds very well at this lower level and is comfortable, but I just can't wear it out of the house.
I've worn it once, and didn't have to adjust it much; but my breasts are decidedly one cup size too big for it.

This was my first attempt at purchasing a bra after learning about proper fit, and this definitely wasn't it. I had a rough time getting it clasped and it was uncomfortably tight. Clearly the cups are too small and I was pouring out of the thing as well. The cups collapsed on the bottom under the weight of my breasts, although they were able to fill out the whole cup. I like the slim look and the smooth front, and will be trying the same one in a better size. My only complaints regarding comfort and appearance are related to the poor fit of this bra and not its construction or design.
