It's been surprisingly hard for me to find a nice grey-colored bra; as someone who tends to get tired of flowery prints, I really appreciated the color here. The little lace, ribbon, and pearl details add a sweet little touch, making the set feel dressed-up and classic without being over-the-top. And the fabric is surprisingly soft!
The matching panties seemed to run a little smaller than the usual Freya Small. This was fine with me since I usually find Freya Smalls a little roomy anyway, but in general, you may want to get a size up from your usual. The style is a bit cheekier than I was expecting, but no complaints from me! I really like the side lace detail.

Due to my shape, the 28GG worked fine for me (a more even to full-on-top 28H might find the 28GG a bit too small). I found it ran about true to size - perhaps a bit generous in the cups, but less so than the old style of Deco (again, this may be mostly a shape issue for me). The band seemed true to size, stretching to just 28" and having a "firm" feel.
One thing I found is that the cups are really quite stiff. Since my breast tissue is on the slightly softer/bottom-heavy side, I found that I had a little bit of trouble filling out the sides of the cup all the way, partially since my breast tissue was escaping out the side a bit (someone with definitely soft tissue would probably have some trouble with spilling out towards the middle, as well).
However, a great feature of this bra is that it has a J-hook option to convert the straps to racerback, and when the J-hook is used, it pulls back the cups a bit and fixes any gaping for me (it actually sometimes gives me a slight bit of quad boob). If you're filling out the cups all the way when wearing the bra normally, using the J-hook will likely cause a little overflow (definitely some extra "oomph"). But if you often get a little bit of gaping with stiff, moulded cups like I do, the racerback feature may solve this issue.
What I really like about this set is that it feels so... mainstream. It's the first multi-way, plunge, moulded bra I've ever had, and it feels like something I would grab at a mall store if I fit in their size ranges. It may seem like a little thing, but this goes a long way towards making me feel more "normal" and better about the bra choices currently out there for me. The two hooks (rather than 3+), the sweet little details, the less-bulky feel, and the J-hook option make the Deco Delight a real winner for me. The bra is comfortable enough that I see myself using it as both a daily choice and on special occasions.
