November 2015 Update: This bra is still full of lies. Now it's too small!! Who would have guessed?! Having bigger boobs didn't solve any problems, it just created new ones! I posted pictures of both regular straps and with the J-hook hooked in the back. (Again, I swear I took pictures originally, but apparently they never made it off my old phone and onto my profile.) When looking, the cups SEEM like they fit me. But that's because I wasn't moving. If I do move, the cups gap and my breasts explode into my armpits. The wires are still an inch too short, ... and this time I took a picture of me pointing to my breast root not being encompassed, and the gap that occurs in the side of the bra. So basically, as long as I stand up perfectly straight, but don't pull my shoulders back, and don't move, this bra fits. In reality, this bra is just basically resting over my boobs, and not actually encompassing them like a proper bra is supposed to. When I have the J-hook hooked, I do get some cleavage/shadowing between my breasts, but I get massive quadboob. And then there's the problem of the straps being extremely painful hooked.
Sadly, the Deco is just never going to work for me.
This bra is full of lies.
The wires are an entire INCH too short for the casing in the underarms, so this basically allows my breasts to escape into my armpits rather than pushing it forward into the sexy cleavage I see in so many images. Clearly this bra is for close-set boobs, definitely not wide-set boobs.
Secondly, while the cup depth makes it sound small, this doesn't take into consideration that it's a plunge bra, meaning that if the wires came up higher in the middle, the wire-to-wire width would be much wider and the cups much deeper.
I wanted to believe that this bra would fit. And it did... as long as I had the wonderful J-hook hooked in the back, the straps tightened to almost an uncomfortable level, and didn't move my arms. (Again, wire an inch lower than casing in underarms, so if I were to spread my arms or pull them back, my breast tissue would disappear from the middle front and be back in my armpits.) If I add thick push-up pads, they keep my breast tissue more in the middle than the bra does itself. I haven't had cleavage since pretty much never since I have such wide-set, shallow boobs (ok, I did once do the Jenna Marbles trick of wearing 2-3 bras and stuffing each one of them, and that worked, but uhhh, not proud of that ) so I wanted this to be my "sexy date bra."
I am full-on-top, with my tissue spreading high on my chest, almost to my collar bone, so I didn't think the extreme open-ness of the bra would be a problem. Alas, the bra (like many other people have said) is too tall and so it sticks straight up past my breast tissue at the top. Only with the push-up inserts can I hike my breasts up high enough to meet the top edge of the cup.
I tried another similar deco in a 28DD, and ohhh my gosh it hurt, it felt 2-3 cup sizes smaller so it was sitting on my breast tissue all the way around and quadboobing at the same time as not filling the middle projection. Maybe this was such a large problem because they were different deco styles, but the store didn't have the Vibe to try in a 28DD so I guess I'll never know. I'm pretty sure this is completely wrong for my shape, though.
I believe that you need medium-to-wide width, deep projection, and medium-to-close-set breasts for this bra to work for you. Oh yeah, and very full-on-top. And like how everyone else says, the band is quite large before stretched, so you're better off if you are have a 28" or 29" ribcage, unlike my 27" ribcage.
On another note, the cup fabric is soooo smooth and soft! I had my mom touch it, and she had such dry fingers that she actually caused a small area to fluff, which was really depressing since it was brand new, haha. XD So don't rub up against anything, and don't let anything catch the nice fabric.
