|Strap width||1.9 |
Heads up to anyone wanting to try this bra: It does infact run 1 cup size too small, compared to the Freya Deco, even though it's built off the same base and style. Then again, I've also heard Deco runs 1 cup size too large, but I disagree.
Measurements are as follows:
Stretched Band: 27.5"
Band Length: 24"
Cup Width: 6"
Cup Depth: 9" (pretty similar to my 28F Deco's)
Wire Length: 9"
Cup Seperation: 1"
Strap Width: .75"
I just got this in today so I can't comment on durability, but it fits (in terms of feel) the same as Deco. Structure is good, however the top edge of the cup still looks a little funny ... on this because of the sewn-in detail. It seems to be unavoidable, though in the smaller size I returned it was more noticeable since the cups were too small my breast tissue was pushing on the detailing causing the edge to curl out more.
The band feels a little firmer than the smaller cup size, and it is short by a half inch. Not a whole lot but for me it makes all the difference. I can close this on the loosest setting comfortably, but am able to make it to the middle.
This does not give as rounded of a profile as Deco, most likely because of the detail. But it's certainly not an overly pointy one...just very...perky (I'm not too crazy for that look, so this is a con for me. Not a really negative of one.)

I think this was worth the 2 month wait =)

This model runs about 1 cup size smaller than the Freya Deco, though it shares the same shape. It's a beautiful bra.

I really love the design of the Freya Taylor and wish it would fit in some size! The tops a bit too closed off, making the cup more shallow than I need; I'm hoping it might fit in a 28G. Otherwise, the band's nice and comfy.

Bought the matching knickers and suspenders to go with this bra, that's how much I love it.
I think it fits larger than a normal 28F deco, but slightly smaller than a normal 28FF deco. The band is big like most freya bras, so maybe down a band size if you like your bands loose.

Interestingly, even though the measurements of the taylor aren't so different from the deco, it seems to be a tiny drop smaller than the deco in the same size. It is not ridiculously small, but maybe the regular deco is a bit more open on the top or middle or something. I can't really tell just yet! I have heard people say that ALL of the deco off-shoots like hatty, ashlee, and taylor all fit more 'true to size'. I had hatty in 28F, and found the fit to be exactly the same as my 28F regular deco. This leads me to be a bit confused whether or ... not it is true that the other deco off-shoots ARE different...
This taylor is the black/brown colorway. It's beautiful! I have seen many pictures, but didn't notice the little details like the lace bow at the center gore or the delicate lace on the tops of the cup. The stripe pattern is lovely.
I'd really have to decide on the fit of this versus the deco before deciding to buy another colorway or just hold out for the new AWESOME deco colors coming out at the end of 2013 (emerald green, FLAMINGOS! omg).
I'm a huge deco fan, because deco actually works for me. Can't say enough great things about all the deco line
As a final note, I DID get this used (I exchanged a 28F deco for this from another bratabase user!), so I can't really say whether or not the stretched band measurement is any different than a brand new taylor!

I usually wear a 28F in the deco, but I bought this 28FF on a whim.
It's actually only a touch too big, it fits pretty well. The only issue is the sides of the cups coming up a bit high under my arms and it can be annoying if I'm doing something active.
Apart from that it's just the same as any other deco

Bought this instead of the 30F because I was told Freya bands are a bit loose. It was slightly too tight when I bought it - I could close it but not even a finger would fit between it, and it left very angry red marks on my skin. Wore a bra extender for a while and after a wash or two I don't need it. I prefer my bands tight so this is perfect for me.
I may be encroaching on a 30G so while I don't fit completely after scooping and swooping (plus migrated breast tissue) I put this down to my own boobs and not the bra. I do, however, have a little bit of space in the end of the cup. I'm assuming it's simply a narrow cup and I have wide beasts.

This bra is gorgeous, with striped cups and chocolate velvet ribbons. I'd read that the cup isn't nearly as generous as the Deco, and to size up, but the 28FF was definitely too big. The band was still loose on the tightest hook, so it wasn't worth seeing if the 28F would fit better. The cups were really tall, and it's only the last half-inch that stood away from my chest. It fit alright with my shoulders all the way back, but you could still clearly see the line of the top of the cup through even medium shirts.

Cup size too small for my usual size in this bra. Would recommend sizing up although I have no tried a larger cup size myself
This bra no longer fits. I lose 5 pounds and 2-3 cup sizes.
It has a deep plunge which allowed my soft, bottom heavy breasts to "settle in" and create some quad boob. I need a higher centre gore; this is just not the right type of bra for me.
