If you're in between band sizes, it's best to try on the larger size as it tends to run small. This bra gives great support and lift, though I find that the material on the band chafes my back. It worsens the longer you wear it. I find that I have to run my fingers on around the band to try and alleviate the discomfort. The first time I wore this, I had red marks from the band being so tight. I usually wear a 34 band in the Freya line, but I could have gone up to a 36.
This doesn't give cleavage as great as the ...Freya Deco Darling, but for everyday wear it is nice and subtle. After scooping and swooping I have significant spillage resulting in quad-boob, but after a few hours my breast tissue sinks back to the side and I find that I have to periodically adjust throughout the day.
It would be unwise to wear this bra underneath a thin shirt as the seam of the cup is bulky and is noticeable. The blush colour is also unsuitable for white shirts as it can be seen. Overall if you're not sensitive to certain materials this would be a good bra to wear everyday underneath thicker shirts. Read more 106 more words
The 32 band is way too big for me. The bands on these bras fit true to size. This is a padded bra, which I've discovered I don't really like. I've tried this and one in 30G and it's only now that I learned why I don't like to wear them. I have short roots and the cups are too tall for me. After adjusting the straps and clipping the j-hook it feels like they take up too much space.
This is not a t-shirt bra. I'd say this is a special occasions bra for when you want to wear something with a low neckline. The band is true to size. If you have splayed breasts this bra would be a good option as it pushes the breasts together for when you want that.
I admit defeat. Moulded diagonally cut cups do not work for my soft, rather empty, small breasts. I hardly have any upper breast fullness. I read the reviews and kind of knew it going in, but wanted so badly to find something that gives great cleavage. This isn't the one. I have gapping on the sides, where strap meets cup, and along the first inch or so of the cup. With a good swoop and scoop, I also have quadboob on the lower inches of cup, where cup meets band.
That said, for differently shaped breasts, I can see this bra being extremely flattering. I love the rich ...purple color. It's supportive, rounding, and pretty comfortable from what I can tell. The J-hook is such a great idea for achieving maximum cleavage. I love that feature, but imagine it means using extra care when washing, so as not to snag delicate fabrics.The fit improves slightly for me when I hook the J-hook.
This is my first experience trying on a Freya bra. The first thing I noticed was that the 30 band feels much larger than it does on any other brand I have tried thus far (which has only been a handful, but still...). I had to put it on the tightest hook and can still fit a whole hand between it and my body if I really try. This seems strange, because it only measures slightly bigger than others I have measured, but I guess that difference in combination with this particular style, allows this band to fit differently. I would downsize the band in the future and try a 28, especially since everybody talks about how their bands are known for stretching. The cups seem to run true to size, but please don't take my word for that because it's so hard to judge when the bra just fits all wrong and I have yet to find something that does fit properly. My estimated size here and on abrathatfits is 30DD/E.
The gore lies flat and sits comfortably on my sternum. The sides, near my armpits, don't come up quite far enough for me and allow for all sorts of spillage of breast tissue in that area. Read more 261 more words
The shape of the Deco Vibe cups seems to work for me. The cups are definitely stiffer than older Decos and I think this is the reason a lot of people have commented it runs a cup smaller. I ordered my usual Deco size of 28GG and it fit me as expected. The stiffer cups and additional trim along the cup edge helps the cups keep their shape in any position--standing, sitting, slouching, leaning forward etc. This works fine for my neither FOT nor FOB breasts. FOT ladies have complained there is less room at the top of the cup. There are small details about this bra that ...are super romantic. There's a subtle bit of lace edging along the band and also a mesh/lace panel between the cups. Very pretty for a tshirt bra. Like my other Deco 28GG bras, the band is stiff but measures just over 28 inches stretched. Even though I measure sub-28 and the band rides up slightly, the stiffness of the band offers me adequate support and I disagree with the broad assumption that "Freya bands run loose". As with all my other Decos in 28GG, 28G and 30G, the gore soft tacks. Read more 91 more words
The quality is great. This bra does not fit the same as a Deco. The cups are stiffer, and accomodate minimal center fullness. I feel like a 30G (my regular size) in this model would still cause quad boob at the gore.
Oh, Deco Vibe, I love you. It fits comfortably to wear all day, doesn't ride up and keeps the ladies in place. I'm FoB and it gives good cleavage without that quad action. The band is comfortable and not overly stretchy. The straps are a touch too far apart for my frame, but it's not too bad.
I like padded bras because you can't tell if I'm cold...haha. This is the best one I've ever owned.
This is my second Freya Deco Vibe in Blush. I prefer it to the Freya Deco in Beige because the top is more closed and does not show through my shirts as much (ie, doesn't "stick out" and catch on my tops). I know that for some, the more closed-in top is not preferable, but for my even-fullness it works better.
I purchased the 32G because, for some reason, the first 30GG in this style that I purchased, was way too tight for my 29" frame. Perhaps it was an anomaly because this one seems to be a bit more stretchy than the first one I purchased. I have several other Deco's in 30GG that fit just fine.
