Undiegamer Asks: Do you know anything about the soft cup deco?
So I titled this post as though I’m going to continue to do “Undiegamer Asks” entries in the future, like it’s a thing, but frankly I haven’t made any plans to. Perhaps I will.
Anyway, the title is pretty obvious. I’m kind of interested in the soft cup Deco bra from Freya. I read in one review on Figleaves that the band runs right, especially compared to newer Freya styles. Then on bratabase I found a 28FF that has been measured, and the fully stretched band is about 28 inches. 28 is a bit looser than I would like from my bras, but that’s better than a lot of Freya styles that come up around 29 or 30 inches!
I’m just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this bra? Does one order their “deco” size with it? (a cup size down form their normal Freya size) Or do they order their normal size, as with Deco re-imaginings like Carly, Taylor, etc? Basically I’m trying to decide if I would need a 28F or 28FF, bearing in mind that I have been leaning toward FF in general in most bras recently (though in a regular Deco an F would probably be my best fit).
Can anyone help little ol’ Windie?
I’m curious about it too have been waiting for reviews.
I’ve only come across the one little one on Figleaves. More information would be great!
I didnt notice this post till now. I think I’m the one who wrote that review on figleaves month or so ago.. here are some updated thoughts about the bra.
Band sizing: The band is just tighter than most freya bands nowadays, but normal in sizing compared to other brands.. I measure about 30″ underbust, and the 30G on me just feels nice and firm in the back.
Cup-sizing: unfortunatly I dont have an ordinary deco at home, and im not sure weather I’d need an FF or G cup in deco.. but my standard freya size is 30G, and I wear 30G in this as well.. however, it can depend on the bust shape… Im fuller on top, and often need to size up when the top of the cup runs tight, or with “non open cups”..
Other thougts: Under the bust, just in the middle, where the wires would meet on an ordinary bra, the band feels very tight, or kind of cuts and digs in to me, and sometimes create a lot discomfort.. I thought this would go away over time, but on me its still there… If someone just want this bra for sleeping, It can perhaps be better with a larger cup-size…
The shape is very similar to the ordinary deco.. and its a lot plunging, but the “plunge” can sag a bit after a while, since its wireless…
I gave it 5 stars on figleaves back then, because I was happy that a bra like this was available (I think I actually mailed freya a couple of years ago, with this exact idea of a bra), and it gives a round lifted shape.
However, since it digs in and from time to time still gives me this discomfort under the bust, I probably would give it 3 stars, a non underwired bra should be comfortable! I hope this is just a problem for me, and that other can wear it without getting this problem..
Thanks so much for the info! I actually ordered one a while ago and it should be here any day, so we’ll see if I have the same problems with discomfort. If the band is a true 28 then it’s something I can likely wear. Freyas recent 28s don’t feel nearly firm enough, I’m glad to hear this one is different.
Totally agree, they’re really way too loose in general nowadays. Hope it will work for you =)
