This bra is what I chose for my first foray into buying online. According to bratabase, the cups would fit while the band would be somewhat loose - and to my surprise, that was pretty much completely accurate. I do have to pull the straps on quite tight and there's a some extra space at the top of the cup on my smaller breast, so perhaps a 28HH might have fit slightly better.
The band felt right on the loosest hook when I first put the bra on, but I had to tighten it to the second one after a few hours - no problems with slipping after that, so at least it wasn't obscenely loose, even if this isn't a great sign with a brand new bra.
As for the non-fit related downsides, the bra goes up REALLY high on the sides. I believe I have an older model where the poking-your-pits is particularily bad. I would not wear a Thrill Me on any day where you have to be doing a lot of activity. It is not, however, something you can't live with for a day, as long as you do the right amount of scooping.
Despite all the negativity thus far - I do have to say this bra very quickly became my current favorite. I love the look of it, with and without clothes on top. The rufflyness and seams aren't as bad as they might seem - a tight camisole under a tight jumper and I was wearing a T-shirt bra as far as you could tell. The bra is also quite light in weight and construction for a padded style.
