This bra fits me perfectly! I'm usually a 30f, so I had to go up a cup size in this bra. I am very projected so I think this bra just runs a little shallow. This bra gives great cleavage and a nice shape. I never feel like I am going to fall out even when playing with my kids. The band is very firm which offers great support. The only thing I don't like is you can see the edge of the cup under thin shirts, so I can't wear it then but under dark colors or flowy tops it's perfect.
I keep buying deco and every one a winner. I’ve tried others and I really want to expand my repertoire, but I simply can’t! I have big boobs, deceptively so as I spill from the side (armpits), but Freya deco cannot be beaten on comfort and looks for the price tag, especially when shopping through brastop. I’ve found bravissimo satins are good but not as good as these. Rigby & Peller are the only bra store to offer any similarity in comfort and look under as well as without clothing, but the price tag 🏷 I just cannot justify u til I know I am not going to lose any more weight. For those interested however, Freya deco come up larger normally but not on good bras such as R&P, so empreinte Cassiopee and Prima Donna eternal fitted perfectly at a shocking down size to a 32f (so single f rather than my usual deco double!),
My local specialty shop* had a 50% off moving sale. They decided that they would not be moving within the mall during renovations twice in a year, after they've had to move about once a year for the last few years. So they closed up, and shipped the remaining merchandise to their other locations, though neither of them are convenient to pop into on a whim one night as this one was for me.
This is one of the styles that I tried and came very close to buying. I didn't buy it in the end though. I'll explain later...
So, I'm no stranger to the Deco, as I ...have had a Spotlight for many years in a 32DD. I have a review for this one in my profile. That one fits me pretty well, but is a little small in the cup because I have only been swooping and scooping since late 2016, and my Spotlight Deco predates that. Also, I'm in smaller backs now and the Spotlight is maxed out and on the tightest hooks and feeling loose.
The one that I have in this review is a 28FF, so it's 2 sister sizes down but with a cup volume up. My main goal in trying this size was 1) could I actually pull off the 28 band and 2) could I pull off the extra cup volume up and 3) using this information, determine if I needed a 30 band and which cup volume was better.
This bra fit me surprisingly well, although I did find the band to be a little bit snugger than I am comfortable with. It was closer to the band fit of my Comexim Victoria in 60HH. It felt like it was just under a 29" stretched measurement (but I didn't have the foresight to bring the measuring tape to grab measurements in addition to the fit). I might have been able to wear it all day but I might be more consciously aware of it during the day unless I had an extender with it. From a technical fit standpoint, this size is the right size. From a comfort standpoint, a 30F is probably the better fit for me. I also love that it has a j hook which is adjustable in height so that I didn't have straps on my shoulder blades. Straps felt a bit snug too, but I could have loosened them.
I obviously love the shape and support of the Deco if I was considering a second one. Naturally, I had the same awesome cleavage that Decos are known for with this one as I did with my original Spotlight. I absolutely love this green! So so much! SO MUCH YOU GUYS! I love the texture of it on the side as well. What I did not like so much is the leopard print trim and bow, although I think it's a good combination of colours. And perhaps I could have gotten used to it. I think that it looks really good against my pale skin.
Why I decided against it...
1) I struggled with the leopard a lot 2) it was still tight and I would have to find an extender and I am tired of extenders on multiple bras. 3) half price was still over $40 and Amazon had other prints and colours in 30F that were less 4) I wasn't even sure that I should have another Deco, because I have been getting pretty decent cleavage and shape with my Ewa Michalak plunge which is softer and lighter than the Deco...not as much boob armour.
I still think about this bra and other Decos and think that if I can Deco, I should Deco, and that I should retire and replace my old Spotlight. I have had an eye on the burgandy Amore but I'm focused on other bras for now.
*well, one of two, but the other one doesn't have the same brands and variety as this one did Read more 554 more words
Wahoo! I finally got to try the Deco Vibe. At first, I had the associate grab my typical 34G size. I heard that the newer Deco models ran smaller...I get some gaping at the top of the cup in the older Deco models and was hoping that the changes would make the Deco a better fit. The cup is too small for me in this size. I ended up sizing up into a 34GG that really fits like my old 34G Deco. I do like that the back fits firmer than Freya's other models. I am wearing the blush color and it's more beautiful in person
This is literally the only bra I've found that fits me. I love it so much. (Not as big a fan of the original deco, since the cups flare out at the top on that one) I have a very narrow rib cage and very narrow, somewhat tall roots. Cups are always too wide for me, and end up wrapping around my sides and being intolerably uncomfortable. My boobs also aren't very squishy, so if a bra isn't shaped like me, well, it's out. I always have a problem with bras being too big just above the nipple area, and yet giving me quad boob. Deflated quad boob is not a good look. I guess I'm more rounded than the majority of bras? I've tried so many, and this is the only bra that gives me some real support and yet doesn't feel like it's trying to saw me in half. Hooray!
If the original Deco didn't work out for you because the cup was too tall or it began to slack a bit on the bottom edge over time, this new Deco variant might be your thing. Everything about this bra is quite standard Deco in its own size range--the strap width, cup width, wire length, gore height all match up to the original style 28GG Deco I have in black. Where it differs, however, is cup height and cup thickness towards the edge of the cup. The Deco Vibe has a seam detail along the cup edge which gives it more structure than if the detail were not ...there to reinforce the molded cup edge. In addition to this, the cup edge itself remains the same thickness throughout instead of tapering off a bit thinner like it does in the original Deco. I personally find that the Vibe style fits me better than the original Deco. My roots are not short, but they are also not very long either. My tissue is also rather firm and often decides it is a non conformist, especially to moulded cup bras.
You might read some reviews suggesting that you may need to size up. I tend to think this recommendation would apply to certain breast shapes. For example, if you find that you are very full on top in the original Deco, you will definitely need to size up in the Deco Vibe. If, however, like me your upper roots just fit without gaping or quadding, you'll find that you can stick to your usual sized Deco for the Vibe.
The only potential downside of this bra is that it is just a bit more bulky than the previous Deco. If you were having troubles fitting your previous Deco under you favourite non-stretch top, there's no way you'll have better luck with the Deco Vibe. But maybe you want the extra oomph and pow under that stretchy fitted top, then get this bra https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" /> Read more 228 more words
I have a thing about the Freya Deco. It’s one of the first bras I bought locally from the specialty shop that used to be in my area. I bought the Spotlight in a 32DD which I thought fit at the time. I never had a band issue, and at the time I was not used to 30 bands as I am now, not was I swooping and scooping...I was leaning forward to put on and juggling and thought that was enough and what I was supposed to do.
I wore it like crazy. It felt like boob armour compared with some of my bras st the time, ...but I got amazing cleavage and the shape under tops was simply unbeatable. I later bought the matching briefs and was in polka dot heaven. I actually still have it, although it is pretty stretched out in the band and I don’t fit the cups anymore.
Last year in the summer, the shop that I had gotten the Spotlight from was closing to move out of town, and had a big 50% off sale to clear stock. At the time, I opted to try the 28FF, knowing that the band might be too tight, but wanting to gage the cup fit as it’s the sister size for the 30F, which was the size I was thinking about needing based on the fit of my Spotlight. Well I was pretty surprised that it was a really good fit, but as I was thinking, the band was a bit too tight. I could have gone with a row of extender hooks and probably been ok. At the time, I decided not to get it, because even though the green was stunning on me, I was really not a fan of the animal print that was the straps and trim details. That, and the fact that I was wearing my Ewa plunge then and getting as good cleavage, with a softer and lighter bra. And even at half price, it was still expensive. I do miss the green though... I think back to this bra often.
Which leads me to this lovely little blush number. I tried it in a few sizes: 28G, 30FF, and this one (30F). I initially tried the 28G thinking that maybe the band was a bit too tight in the 28FF prior because the cup was too small. In my mind, I knew that wasn’t right, as the cup was pretty perfect in the 28FF, but I also knew that I had begun to see an increase in volume/tissue/size late summer or early fall, so I was not sure if I would need a larger cup size or not. I also picked the 30FF with the knowledge that the 28G would be too tight.
I could not get the 28G done up and switched to the 30FF. Surprised that I had a bit of empty space in the cups, I opted to try a cup size down and see if the 30F would fit.
It did and did not. The band tightness was good. I coul use loosest or middle hooks. Cup volume was better. Pretty perfect. The colour was nice too (a little bit pinker than the pictures show). The fabric covering the cups was super silky and smooth although this one was snagged. The thing that bothered me most about this fit was the cup height and cup edge. It seemed taller and maybe more open than the other ones I had tried. The top edge of the cups were visible under my thinner shirt and the camisole they had there to try. It was not quite as bad as the Kiyoko half cup I tried, but it wasn’t far off. If I can’t wear it under light tops, then I have no use for it as I would want it for lighter tops where I need a nude/fleshy/light coloured bra. Both fitters really loved the fit of the Deco on me though.
I don’t know if it’s just the colourway of production, or if it’s just the larger cup size, since my 32DD never did that, and and I don’t recall the 28FF being visible under my camisole either. I’m not super broken up about it as I was trying the Passionata Brooklyn in 65G again and I generally preferred the lighter feeling of it compared with the Deco as a summer t shirt bra, though I had minor quadding in it and no 65H to try (I might try 70G even though band is loose, just to see how the cups fit).
Anyway, I still really love the Deco and fit, though since I can get same fit from Ewa and Comexim without the boob armour, I will probably continue to pass the Deco up unless I find a really good deal. Plus, Bravissimo Satine is supposed to be good like Deco but better, but now I question my Satine size.
I am glad I tried it again, and maybe one day I will have a new Deco, but now isn’t that time. Read more 739 more words
I bought this bra from Broad Lingerie in Toronto, ON. It was on the clearance rack and I had been wanting a Deco Vibe in Blush for a long time because I needed a new "nude", seamless bra for myself. I tried it on, and I knew that Freya's 28 bands were too big for me, but Sam Conover, the owner of the boutique, has a personal friend who does alterations for a small fee! So I got the band shortened by a full band length, which cost only $10, and I got the straps shortened about an inch as well (only $5) so that if I ever ...want to use the J-hook it'll be positioned in the middle of my back instead of up near my neck. I just left the bra with Sam once I paid for it and it took about 4 days for the alterations to be completed, and then they just emailed me when it was ready to be picked up! As for the bra itself, here we go: I love the delicate blush colour, and it has a pretty diamond geometric mesh over the band. It also has a thin white lace trim along the bottom and top of the band, as well as on the sides of the cups. Because of the alteration, the band fits nice and snug on the first set of hooks. The wires are a perfect width for me, and the bra is a little on the shallow side, both in cup depth and immediate depth at the wire, but this is what creates VS-style cleavage. The bra doesn't ride down for me because I don't need a ton of immediate projection. An added benefit of having the band shortened was that the straps came inward slightly, so they're a good width for me when worn regularly. The gore tacks, and it doesn't bother me whatsoever throughout the day. Having the band shortened almost makes the cup volume too small for me (it wasn't a problem when I tried it on before the alteration) but this just adds to the cleavage, which I'm not complaining about. Now that the band is the proper length too, it really feels like I'm strapped in (in a good way) and there's barely any movement throughout the day. My boobs stay where they're put in this bra.
Overall, I love this bra, and I had an amazing experience buying this from Broad Lingerie! 10/10, would recommend. Read more 303 more words
Bra description: Soft, feminine blush color with delicate white details (lace, bows, piping). Molded plunge, seamed cupe, with optional J-hook in back. Runs truer to size than most Freya bands (I had to use an extender). It looks like I managed to get a small pen mark on one cup at some point (not really sure how that happened).
I bought this bra under the delusion that I could make it work, even though the Deco and I are frenemies at best... needless to say, our relationship didn't last. Why you ask? Here's the summary:
Me: short rooted, center heavy, even/fob, projected Deco: tall cups, plunge, shallow Notice the opposite characteristics ...between us? Every time I put this bra on, I would fall out of the center while the top of the cups would gape. Attaching the J-hook in the back lessened the gaping, but didn't really fix my problems.
I got the Deco Vibe in a 28FF based on my previous experiences with Decos . 1) regular/old-style decos did the weird cup-edge-sticks-out-thing, 2) Decos in my size (30F/FF) would gape at the top while I fell out of the center (projected boobs tilt the moulded cup out to make room for themselves, causing the top to gape) 3) sizing down to a 30E in the Deco delight got rid of the gaping and caused lots of cleavage (the quadding was not noticeable under a shirt because it was all between the cups).
So as the band on my 30E Deco stretched out and my boobs grew a little, I decided a new deco was in order. A 28 band should solve the stretchy problem, right? and going up a cup size shouldn't be a problem because my boobs are bigger, right? Plus the blush will function as a nude! Win win win! NOPE. The band always felt a little too tight on me, so I needed an extender, and despite my larger boobs, I still got top of cup gaping. Maybe my boobs just got bigger in the center, which does nothing when sizing up in plunge like the deco (short roots, remember).
So in conclusion, this bra has been sitting in my drawer for ages. I've worn it a couple of times, but more often then not, when I want the racerback, I reach for the 30E more than the 28FF because I would have excessive cleavage and a slightly loose band than a too tight band, slightly too tall cups and the quad/gap effect. If you are projected and short rooted and get the same issues in the deco (quad/gap effect), I'd suggest doing the same thing I did and sizing down a cup or two to minimize the fit issues.
