    28D

    Didn't fit

    This bra is the Freya Deco (4234), just with a print fabric. It is also incredibly difficult to fit correctly. I can't quite put my finger on it except to say that the cups are a strange shelf-like shape, and the band runs quite large -- at least one full band size if not more. This bra is marked 28D (!) but if it had no tags and one had to judge from the measurements alone, I would guess it to be a 30B or C.

    Since it is so cute, I think I am going to try another size, and then hopefully will be able to give a more extensive review. I guess I have to decide whether budget and sanity will allow it. Purchased from Breakout Bras, late Spring 2010.

    Please see also my other review of this bra: http://www.bratabase.com/browse/freya/deco-4234/28DD/

    • Thanks for posting these dimensions. They're... quite curious. I have Lydia and Deco on order in 28D and DD. I have my fingers crossed.

    • Hey, let me know how they work out for you! I am starting to feel like I am the only one who can't get this bra right -- it has so many glowing reviews online and I can't figure it out! I'll be very curious to see what you come up with.

    • I don't see anything strange about the measurements. They seem to be in line with the size of it. This one is 3 cup sizes smaller than my deco, and the cups have 3" in difference between them, so that sounds correct. Also the band size of 23.5" would fit a ribcage between 26-28". Did you make sure to adjust yourself properly in the cups? The Deco style, as well as this one require you to bring all your breast tissue up for a good fit. Freya tends to run half a size big when it comes to the band anyhow. I sometimes close mine on the middle eyes.

    • The band stretches to 32", which means it actually fits a ribcage of 29-31", maybe even 32". Also, the cup measurements (width, depth, and wire length) are significantly smaller than my 30D Cleo Jo, which fits me perfectly, yet the fit of the Freya is way off. On a band of this size, these cup measurements (width of 4", depth less than 6") are equivalent to a B or maybe C cup.

      If you read all my reviews of the Deco/Lydia style, you'll see that I eventually came to the conclusion that the straps were the problem for me -- the 28E would have fit beautifully, but the straps were just too far apart.

    • You have to remember though that t-shirt styles are meant to stretch a little with you. Not so much from a seamed, lace bra, like your Cleo (Cleo bras are more generous in the cup too). Seamed bras hold a little more volume. Also 30C and 28D hold the same cup volume. So a cup volume/depth of nearly 6" would be in line with what a 28D breast perimiter would measure, which is 6". This band does run a tiny bit big. I'm not sure how you were able to get yours to stretch so large though. My 28 will only stretch to 27". Perhaps there is a slight variant between the Deco and and Lydia other than just the print. I know what you mean about the straps though. I have sloped shoulders so I tend to pull the Deco's in, but it doesn't cause that much gapping for me.

    It nearly fit! There's just a smidge of extra space around the top line of the cup. Despite that it still lifted and pushed me out. The band is quite generous. It's a fun and colourful print. Unfortunately for this specific bra someone has done a little damage to it with a pair of scissors, kinda surprised it was considered saleable. If i find this in a 28D i'd try it again.

    The Lydia is almost exactly like the Deco, except more colorful. The material used is slightly stretchier, I think, and stretched out faster, but not much. I still love it. I did notice that the color faded rather quickly on the back material while it is still vibrant on the cups. This bra is, oh, about 9 months old I think.

    • Hi, I see that the cup width for this bra is listed as 13 inches. I think this must have been a typo: it's not possible for a cup 12 inches deep to be 13 inches wide. Would you mind measuring it again?

    • I tried to be as accurate as possible when measuring. These are the numbers I got. I no longer have that bra so I cannot measure again.

    • Ok, thank you for responding! :)

    I love this bra, if you want push-up and cleavage enhancement this bra is for you, It is the same as the the Freya Deco - I have no idea why the name is different, as far as I can tell there is no difference. The style of this bra is great, it provides excellent support, and a nice smooth, rounded shape. the quality of the materials and workmanship are good too. The pattern is really cute though it has faded on the back of the bra which I find a bit strange, since this is not a bra I wear or wash often.

    Didn't fit

    I liked the colours and bright green straps.. but couldn't find the bra in my size.
    So, after a short time thinking (and the opportunity of finding it in a sister size at a very low price), I decided to alter it to a 28GG.

    This was my first alteration for a bra, pretty happy of the result.

    The fit now is much better, though I find the material of the straps a bit rough and would be tempted to change them too.

    34FF

    Fits

    "Friend with similar boobs": Mostly even shape, wide-set, slightly projected, lots of tissue migration (back into the boobs).

    I usually go a size down with a Freya bra for several reasons. The cups are much wider than average for the same size, they're more open, sometimes the top is hard to fill, and they are molded for even shapes. Also, their bands seem to be stretchier than most. I'm mostly even, but maybe a little full on the bottom. I measure 33" around, snugly. I usually go for 32FF.

    I needed a bra with bigger cups and a stretchier band for when I get my period (swell up ... a cup size). I decided to try a size up to see if it would reduce the slight (very slight) quadboob that I get from my 32FF bras when I am on my period. I think buying this bra was a case of, "Should have sized down".

    The band stretches quite a bit. It does ride up slightly on the loosest hook. On the 2nd tightest hook it stays put. I have to scoop and swoop every little bit to fill the bra properly. Once I do that, it's fine. However, during the course of the day I have to re-scoop/swoop. I have to stand up absolutely straight to prevent gaping.

    It fits as a fuller-coverage bra on me, which I wasn't expecting. I believe this probably has to do with it being slightly large. The straps are a good width and they're very comfortable on my shoulders. The wires are wide enough to include all the tissue, but not so wide that it irritates my axillary region. The fit gives me a smooth shape under clothes, and I do feel that it is very supportive.

    Overall, a good bra. It encourages me to stand up straight and finally I have a bra that won't get too small for me after a month.

    34FF

    Didn't fit

    Cute spring color scheme with very light spring leaf green for the inside/straps/lace/bows/trim and a white/light-light cream background with pastel flower-y geometric print.

    If this is Freya Deco (4234) or Freya Deco Moulded Plunge Bra (4234) fit, I may have found my current size.

    Cups are still a slight bit tall, but that's just my short boobs and is only noticeable at the strap attachment points. Would not be a problem for most.

    Depth seems fine for me - a little squished up, but not too much.

    Wires are pulled out a little when I put it on, but when I sw/scoop, things seem ... to fill out nicely.

    Straps are, of course, too wide-set on me. I'm not little, but my frame width is smaller than would be expected (shoulder-to-shoulder point is something like 12" on my otherwise L/XL body). I only tried on the bra, but the straps seem to stay put and don't cut in, so it's probably fine.

    Will have to update after I wear it for a full day.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    UPDATE: Uh... NO.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Cannot wear this bra as is. The depth is too small and squashes my boobs up at a crazy angle to try to squish them into the too-high apex.

    I guess I'm just destined to not wear a Deco of any kind. If it fits my depth, the cup practically climbs over my shoulder. If I go small like this, the apex/angle/depth combo hurts just way too much. OUCH!

    Will try once more at a different part of my cycle... Just on the off chance this is period related sensitivity.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    more update:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I've realized that this bra would fit me if my boobs were taller or rounder. I have to tighten the straps more to keep it from being silly gape-y on the tops, so it cuts down on the projection, causing pain in my boobs from being pushed upward and kind of inward. Apex is too high.

    I like the cut of this bra, but it doesn't support my boobs consistently. I end up having readjust really often - they fall out if I bend over. The materials are great, but the pattern is not my style at all - it looks like tampon packaging to me, and doesn't go with my skin tone. It's too bad, because the bra gives me some all-star cleavage.

    This bra is so cute and fun for summer! Unfortunately, my boobs are just too darn big for this bra now https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_sad.gif" alt=":(" /> Wish it was still available to buy in a different size.

    I love the lydia, the print is fun and colourful. The fit is defiantly deco like, the shape it gives isn't for everyone as it's very in your face, I personally love it. It has however stretched quite a lot, I have worn it a lot but it has stretched quicker than other bra's I have.
