I was very excited to try an alternative to the 28E - Freya » Deco Moulded Soft Cup Bra (4231), since I used to wear only wire-free bras prior to discovering my proper size. The Super Smooth Plunge has some advantages over the Deco Soft Cup, but also has some unfortunate drawbacks.
Pros: Gossard designed the Super Smooth so that the cups and band are one piece. The material used in the band is pretty hefty, so it keeps the cups from collapsing into the band, as the Deco Soft Cup does. Though it is a wire-free bra, it does have a little more structure than I ...expected from a wire-free bra. I have wide-rooted, shallow boobs, and it worked well for my shape.
Cons: I find the padding to be a little overzealous for a bra meant for comfort. I do wish it came in a 28 sized band. My biggest complaint is that the straps are set too wide, which causes some gaping if my shoulders slouch forward. Not only that, but due to the smooth, moulded construction of the bra, altering the straps will not be easy. Read more 82 more words
This bra is a perfect nude for my skin tone. Unfortunately I was only able to purchase it in a sister size, and so the band is too big and moves around uncomfortably. I also find myself falling out of this bra a lot, a problem I don't have in the Freya Deco. I attribute this to the large band, but also the amount of padding in the bottom of the cup, which doesn't conform to my shape. As a result I get an odd shape in this bra; rounded yet pointing downwards slightly. This mirrors my natural apex, but the padding is uncomfortable and I worry about ...damaging it. I get good cleavage in this bra, but this deteriorates throughout the day as I move around. The cups are too small for me, and I get quadboob, but I dont think thry run small, just a sizing error on my part. The band is made from a wonderfully soft and stretchy material, as are the cups, and the straps. The straps are nice and narrow, but too long for me, even adjusted fully. I would be interested in trying this bra in the right size, but at present it has too many fit issues for it to be worth keeping. Read more 104 more words
Excellent bra for shallow bras, although I did find the top to be rather projected. The bra is moulded into a wireless shape, and provides excellent support. The band, as is usual with Gossard, runs small.
