I probably should have just saved my money but I did not.
I wanted a strapless bra so badly.
But the thing I have to accept is, there's no bra to hold up my boobs without straps.
Freya Deco Strapless is not necessarily small. I had a 32G before this one that I was just too upset about to enter in the database (sorry about that)... I read previously that the band runs tight on this one but the 32 was just sliding down my torso so I got a 30GG instead. The band is a little tight on it but it's not as bad as it looks in the photos. ... I can breathe, move, and I can pull it way away from my body. The silicon on it is really strong, though! It grips very strongly and doesn't budge.
And at first look, the cups kinda fit too. This bra is very projected, so I don't think projection is my issue. I honestly can't say why it fits so awkward :/ It might be because of the slings inside? Honestly at times it feels like the cups are even too big.
I don't know, I can't quite tell.
The wires are really comfy tho, and although they are too wide they're not that much of a bother to me. The gore sits nicely against my sternum, no issues there.
I think if I were in a pinch and absolutely needed a strapless bra this would work. A long long time ago tho, my one strapless bra was my workhorse bra, so I'm really bummed this wouldn't work the same https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" />

This is a really, really awesome bra. With or without the straps, the support it gives is excellent. It has a very round, smooth shape and works under pretty much any clothing. It's probably the most useful bra I own.
I wish it were available in a cup size larger than GG, since I could maybe have gone with the wiggle room that an H would have (my breasts like to surprise me by growing.) But as it is, I can wear the bra comfortably for the whole day. The light padding is a little bit heavy for hot weather, but it has enough lift to prevent underboob ... rash and other atrocities that come with the summer.
If you're considering purchasing the bra, you should be aware that the band is on the snug side. Usually a 28 is better for me, since I have an itty bitty ribcage under all my squishiness, but the 30 in the Deco strapless is just perfect. Don't get this bra expecting the band to stretch quickly- it's very sturdy and would take more breaking in than it's worth! If you're not sure what band size to get, aim a little bit high.
My one complaint is that the bra spreads my boobs a little too far apart for my tastes. It would probably look better on someone with a broader chest. It looks great under clothing regardless, though.

I needed a strapless bra, so I tried Amazon wardrobe with this, the Panache, and the Curvy Kate. This was really difficult to put on, folds over itself at the bottom, is too wide, but it looks best under the dress I'm wearing it with, so I guess I'm keeping it.
The bright side is that it stays up really well, and it's not actually uncomfortable despite taking a lot of effort to put on.
UPDATE: It is incredibly painful to wear for extended periods of time if it starts slipping down. I unfortunately didn't realize it had started to fall down my ribcage during a night out, and I woke up the next morning with welts where my bra had been the night before. I've worn it since without any problem, but the no-slip strips on the band can get really pinch-y if you're not careful.

Perfectly practical in every way.

This bra has great support...enough so that I wear it with or without the straps to ballroom & West Coast Swing dance!

Ebay seller sent me wrong bra and a size I could only dream of fitting into.
I thought I would get some measurement before sending it back. I never actually tried it on just help it up to myself.
The shape looks wonderful just like all the reviews are saying. It is a very round deep for the size cup. It has the gel plastic in the inside that helps the cups from falling down. It came with two straps that has two plastic to hook in both the back and the front. I really like when bras do that.

Based on the measurements, I was a bit sceptical (I assumed it would be slightly too small in the cups). I was even more sceptical that there exists a bra that would actually keep girls this size in place without straps.
But lo and behold, I was wrong on both instances! This bra stayed in place perfectly, was very supportive, and to top it off, gave a fairly nice shape! It isn't the most comfortable bra for sure, but then again I doubt any strapless is...
The cup folds at the bottom in an odd way, but it doesn't show under clothes so it doesn't bother me. ... Well, to be honest, it would bother me were this a normal bra, but in this case that's definitely something I can overlook.
I can wear strapless tops and dresses, for the first time ever!!!

The band is very snug on this bra. It would fit a 28HH. The cups were also quite tall, which isn't great for low necklines.

This bra does the job of a strapless but after a couple hours of wear I find it so uncomfortable.
