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.
