Normally I donâ€™t blog about bras, but rather I tend to emphasize how important the right fit is for your mind and your body. Iâ€™m also a Deco-maniac, which is another reason I donâ€™t often blog about bras–I only wear one style. However, Decos come in many colors and patterns every year, so itâ€™s not like wearing the same bra all the time. 🙂
Where would I be without the Deco? Iâ€™ve tried to look for something better,Â but I always come back to it. Iâ€™ve even heard a quote from a friend of mine: â€œPutting on a Deco is like getting a pair of new boobs!â€. On lingerie sites for bigger busts like Bravissimo and BraStop, it generally rates between 4.5 to 5 stars.
I decided over Chritmas that I really needed some new bras. Only a few of mine worked for me anymore, and my trusted nude Deco had to RIP. That loyal partner had come to the end of its bra life. I went to my favorite online bra stores and put so many different kinds of bras into my shopping basket: Fantasie sidesupport ones, pretty Curvy Kates, gorgeous Masquerades, and Bravissimo’s own brand (especially the Satine) that had worked for so many, especially those who unfortunately do not get on with the Deco. As the Bravissimo sale approached, I asked for recommendations from my friends. The Tango plunge got many votes, as did the Bravissimo bras. There was a Deco Honey recommendation, too.
I couldn’t make up my mind and let it rest, but the Deco Honey idea stuck. Itâ€™s a prettied up version of the Deco that comes in Purple and Firecracker colors. Last Friday I had had it with my worn out favorite Crystal (thatâ€™s a Deco too) and thought, “Now â€“ I need to order some bras finally!” I searched for the best deal for three Decos online and ended up at Figleaves.Â This time I did not even hesitate. I had been thinking of ordering new bras for a month already! Now Iâ€™m eagerly waiting for my Charcoal, Black and Firecracker Decos to arrive. Itâ€™ll be like Christmas when they do.
For the past two days Iâ€™ve had a little trouble breathing because Iâ€™m coming down with a flu. What made it easier was deciding to wear the strapless Deco–having no straps on my shoulder actually made me breathe a little easier! The strapless Deco offers an outstanding shape and uplift for bigger cups. It’s not as good as the regular Decos, but it’s pretty darned impressive still.
Whatâ€™s makes me so gaga over the Deco, you may ask? Itâ€™s the shape, itâ€™s the uplift, itâ€™s the comfort. Being able to wear it under just about anything because it is also a t-shirt bra essentially.
If you do need to wear a white shirt at work, then the nude Deco is your choice, but I rarely wear white so this is not an issue for me personally. Â If I do, I have a few trusted camis with wider shoulder straps that can cover the colored bra straps so they donâ€™t show. I’ll also share my current wishlist, all Deco of course!
If you Google “Deco”, the first thing to show up will be the famous Brasilian/Portuguese football (yes football, Iâ€™m European) player Anderson Luiz de Souza. Be sure to Google “Freya Deco” to find this mighty bra instead.
still would like to emphasize Freya Deco is SO famous with Google search that it comes up on the second page because the footballer Deco for sure is much, much more famous. But even that result speaks volumes for it magnifigance.
Another excellent blog post, thank you Tiina! I also love my Deco and, being a 30H/HH in most bras, I bought a 32GG and had the band taken in. Really hope Freya expand their Deco sizes!
Sounds like a true love )
As for me, I own Ashlee, but I should confess that I had to bend out wires for about 1/2″ or 5/8″ to to make her work for me. Decos have too narrow cups for me. But sometimes I’m playing with idea to get more of them, because I like shape and overall look after bending wire operation.
It is 🙂 Malica, what would be your top tip on how to bend the wires? I love my Rheas but would need to bend the wires as they poke my underarm.
Do it gently, slowly increasing pressure and when you feel that they are bending then make pressure even. Do it with small steps (like 1/8″ at a time) for each cup in turns, try the bra after each step. If you can use male hands and this hands attached to the body with brain and attached in the right place (so you can trust him, he won’t ruin the bra by bending to much and/or using to much strength) this can be a good idea (you can’t really control what you do with maximum effort you capable of, and Freyas wires aren’t very easy to bend).
And if the problem is not shape of the wires, but length, then you can free the wire tip from the channel where it’s not very visible, then nip off 1/4″ or so, then use some silicone for plumbing to encase the tip and place the wire back.
