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.
