If the strapless does not stay up it is too big in the band. You might need a 28F (D4) cup. The problem with the silicone in the band could mean that you are possibly having an allergic reaction to the silicone which can happen with some customers, or it could be because the bra is rubbing on you due to the bra not staying in place because the band is too big.
The 4530 usually runs full in the cup rather than small. The deco strapless in Freya is a little less coverage and has a plungier silhouette.

The cup usually runs big, but you might want to try going up a cup!!! This is a super great strapless bra!!!
Pros: The band fits wonderfully - perfectly snug, the way I like it - so no problems there. The silicon grips make it feel very secure.
Cons:The cups are definitely too big and gap away from me at the sides, though. Having nursed 3 children, I'm not perky at all anymore, so I could understand a bit of a gap at the top. But the sides? Also, while I like separation in a regular bra, I find that I prefer a little more cleavage with a strapless, given the type of dresses and tops I would wear a strapless bra with. This bra is almost a minimizer in this respect, and offers no cleavage enhancement at all, which is fine, but not what I'm looking for. I don't think that this will change with a smaller cup size and I'm hesitant to go smaller than a 36F to get a good fit. So this bra is going back and I'll have to try a different brand.
You might try the 36F. If the bra is gapping at the sides it should be too large. It is difficult to find a push up strapless in your cup size, but you could also try the Freya strapless Deco style 4233
for a little more “vavoom”.

The Fantasie strapless is one of the best strapless bras out there for larger busted women. The cup does run a little full so make sure you do not need a 30F.

The 4530 is a great strapless bra. Sorry it did not work for you. The cup on 4530 runs full, was it the correct size?
