I'm actually really surprised at this bra. I ordered this bra on sale, before I realized the extent of my tissue migration, and started thinking it'd be tried on and promptly returned. Or if I kept it, I figured it would fit like my Hatty - a bit too wide, a bit too gappy at the top, but would serve its multi-way bra purpose and that would be that.
Well, these cups measure 5.5" - same as my Hatty. Depth is smaller than my Hatty at 9" but is right on target for a bra with an index size of 28:9. I ... probably could have done a GG for the sake of my bigger boob, but I don't think it's quadding enough to bother me. Time will tell. The good part is the Deco-gap at the top of the cups is much less pronounced in this style. Maybe it's due to the seam/edging at the top of the cup. I've heard that really stands out under shirts in other styles like the Spotlight and Vibe, but I haven't tried this bra on under a tighter shirt yet to find out. The cups are too shallow at the bottom, and fold over under my boob after a couple hours' wear. They're molded like every other Deco variation, and theoretically seamless under shirts. This is my only ivory color bra. The weird pattern on the band is meh. It needs to be a bit more vibrant, because as is it kinda looks like a stain.
The band has THREE HOOKS! Let's all take a moment to appreciate that. Not only that, it's a FIRM Freya band, stretching to 27.75"! Yes!!!! I wonder if Freya did this because the straps can be removed and it could be worn as a strapless? I don't see myself wearing it as a strapless, because of the cup construction, but regardless having a firm 3 hook band from Freya is like finding a unicorn.
UPDATE: Sold it, once I realized the wires sat half an inch below my IMF and half an inch outside my side root. It got really uncomfortable after a couple of hours.
