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!),
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.
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.

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!
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
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
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.
The band in the Vibe is very firm it took a few weeks of regular use with an extender to get it to stretch enough to be comfortable without. Most Freya 30s are a pretty good fit and more likely to be a bit loose than tight. The cups might be just a bit smaller than some Decos but not small enough for me to size up.
