DECOMarch 29, 2011
I feel that words must be said about Freya’s Deco Moulded Plunge Bra; I’m surprised it’s even taken me this long to mention it!
The Deco is, without a doubt, marvelous. I do own a strapless Deco, but I’m going to start by talking about the original.
I bought my first one in Pomegranate, and it is gorgeous. Soft, comfortable, flattering and great to wear with practically any outfit. It goes up to a GG cup, so it’s bound to keep a lot of larger breasted women happy, although I do think they ought to consider expanding the size range for such a popular bra.
The 32FF (pomegranate) is, as I say, slightly too big for me. The girls need to be pulled up a little further, because the band isn’t quite tight enough, and the cups are a little loose. It’s still nice to wear, and when worn in the right size, will be absolutely perfect.
Among the other Deco’s that I own, are: the Freya Frida Deco, the Pistachio Deco, and the Strapless Deco; however, this is by no means going to be the end of my Deco collection.
The Frida is so pretty – probably one of my favourites so far. It’s purple leopard print, and made of really smooth material, with of course, the lovely moulded cups. I have the Frida in a 32F which is a cup size smaller than my regular size – I think if I could’ve found it in a 30FF (which is my Deco size), it would’ve been a better fit, as here I do have to wear it on the tightest hook.
As I have briefly mentioned above, before you purchase a Deco bra, you should be aware that you will most likely need it a band size smaller than your usual, and possibly a cup size smaller. I am normally 32FF and as I say, it was loose (in both band and cup).
However, the same cannot be said for the Strapless Deco. I made the mistake of purchasing it in a 30FF, and while the cup is fine-ish, the 30 is too tight – of course, this is because strapless bras are always tighter (a point I somehow failed to remember upon purchasing it). So my advice is, Standard Deco: Band and cup size smaller than usual, Strapless Deco: Cup size smaller than usual.
In order to wear the strapless, and still be comfortable in it, I bought an adjustment hook – which means it’s widened the band to 32; phew.
Last but my no means least, the Pistachio Deco; the newest in my collection (not for long!)
This is not normally a colour I would go for, I would describe it as ‘mint green‘, but somehow, it just works. It looks like ice cream, and I just feel great when I wear it (as is often the case with a Deco). I pre-ordered this one, to make sure I could get it in my regular deco size, 30FF (which seems to sell out fast). It is the best fitting one in my collection, but I still can’t decide whether I prefer this one, or the Frida – they’re both fabulous bras.
Some places I recommend buying them are:
Freya’s own website: Deco Moulded Plunge Bra
Figleaves: Deco Strapless
Leia Lingerie: Pistachio Deco
The Frida Bra is hard to find, but here is a place that stocks them – not many sizes left though.
Anyway, that is all my info on Deco bras for the time being, and I thoroughly recommend getting one, or two, or more, if you don’t already own one. 🙂
