*This review is for the blue/ivory version of this bra*
The cut of this bra are actually quite similar to a 32DD I have in another brand, though this one has slightly deeper cups. The 32DD seems to be better scaled to a petite frame in general though. This “tease me” was a complete tease, as the fit is not so great on me:
*It has three hooks, which is very comfortable..
*The straps are fully adjustable. This is great for petite/high set ladies, such as myself.
*The construction of the cups with the shallow bottom creates great uplift for the oft-described “cakes on a plate” cleavage.
*It’s just cute. ...
*The band is huge. I’ve read that this band runs large, so it was not entirely surprising, but I was won over by the bra’s cuteness and all cares of actual band fit were temporarily forgotten. When I put it on I went straight for the tightest hook and still didn’t feel I was getting much support. A smaller band size would be great, if such were an option. It’s not just that it’s a little bigger, it’s bigger because it’s pretty stretchy, so I think the stretchiness in addition to it being large makes it feel less secure. I’ve had 32 bands that technically measure larger but feel more firm and secure. This is definitely something to remember, especially if you are a sub-28 band size.
*The straps at the front are way too far apart. They cut in at my armpit crease, leading to very minimal support/uplift. This looks like a common complaint, and I’m guessing perhaps since the band seems to run so large the whole thing is scaled for people a little bigger around. I think the fit and look of most of my bras would be improved if I could move the straps closer together, though, so this might just be me.
*The center gore on this is fairly high on me. Even though the wires are really pretty close together, they are still sitting on breast tissue. I don’t believe this is an issue of the cups being too small though, as I have a small amount of extra space on the outer sides. If I could move the cups to about one wire-width apart it would be better. I generally think plunge bras would probably work best for me most of the time, so again this might just be me.
*The shallow cup bottoms definitely pick me up, but I actually don’t get the “cakes on a plate cleavage” unless I move the front straps forward. The straps are far enough out that, when paired with the huge back band, I’m not getting much, if any, uplift. I tried folding and pinning the straps in the front about an inch inward, and this seemed to help the fit tremendously. (I had a similar problem with the Freya Deco strapless when I attempt to use the widest adjustable strap setting, and it’s corrected by using the closer one.) When I do this I definitely get the amazing pushed up effect, but I also get a flattened stripe across my nipple line, creating a weird square profile. I again don’t think this is an issue of the cups being too small; I think I would drown in a larger size.
Overall, I think trying different sizes in a smaller band size (if they existed) would be more useful and look much better once I found the cup size I need from that. This size as it is now does not work very well for me. This bra is really cute (especially for the price – on sale at brastop), and I think rather than mess around with returning it (international shipping for me), I’ll see if I can tailor it a bit to make it workable.

I want to love this bra so much, its beautiful! But alas, the fit is not meant to be.
UPDATE: After so fitting and measuring assessments Ive realized the fit issues are because its multiple sizes too big for me.
Fit issue #1: Both the cup spacing and wires are WAAAAAYYY to wide.
Fit issue #2: Because of the wide cup spacing there's spillover in the middle which no amount of scooping can alleviate.
Fit issue #3: Strap placement. After prolonged wear it feels like they're trying to saw my arms off. On the plus side it definitely helps with posture by forcing me to pull my shoulders back lol! I'm sure I could move the straps in a little bit whenever I get into a sewing mood.
Even with all these fit issues I still wear it every once and awhile just because its so pretty.

Comfortable, beautiful, and only shows up under thin shirts.

So happy to have finally figured out my bra size in the Tease Me. Beautiful and comfortable.

As for the black / purple, it doesn't work for me.

What a lovely bra!
I got more of the CK Tease me, unfortunately still not the right fit.
This one is the black / purple, with lovely ribbons at the centre and strap base.
A beautiful black lace overlay, scallop lace at the top of the cups, and purple satin line.
I really love all the details making the 'Tease me' one of cutest bras ever, although the fit is not right for me.
Just one really good point for the fit, the straps are far enough so they don't cut into the side of the boobs.
Probably a bra to wear at home, but definitely can't wear it with clothes on, it looks just awful, which is a shame as it is so comfortable.

Surprisingly narrow for CK, still too shallow for me. Would have needed 28GG or H, I think. Band is super stretchy. Design isn't my favourite, but it's definately well put together if you like this kind of style.

My conical boobs and narrow shoulders do not agree with this bra at all.
I think they may have updated the fit of the band (this review is from AW2014), it seems only a bit loose for a 28. I'm 29" and like tight bands, and it felt just right.

I'd say this bra runs about one size small in the cups and one or two sizes large in the band (it has a very stretchy band). I can't size down in the band, since it doesn't come in anything below a 28 band (would if I could), but it is wearable even as stretchy as it is. I've heard a lot about the showgirl bras (Tease Me, Thrill Me, Fleurty) being painful in the gore, but I think that might be more of a problem in the smaller cup sizes, since the gore comes up higher in the larger cup sizes and may bypass the sensitive, bony ... places on the sternum. For example, the gore on the 28F Tease Me is 2.5" high, while the gore on the 28G is just under 2.875" high. Personally, I find this bra to be very comfortable and I don't have a lot of padding on my ribcage. My biggest problem with this bra, which I otherwise like, is that the wide band of lace at the top of the cup (the one that the ribbon is laced through) can break up the roundness of the silhouette and give the appearance of a big, flat strip running across an otherwise round shape. It's possible, though, that this effect would diminish over time as the fabric relaxes.

I've been drooling over the Tease Me bras and I'm slightly disappointed. While it's pretty it's not quite as great looking in person as I thought. The details are pretty but with all the "fluff: it's not suited to be worn under tighter shirts. The cups are lightly padded which is nice and it's not an uncomfortable bra it's not something I would wear every day though. The band is really loose though for my 25" rib cage and this one is about a cup too small for me, I really wish that CK had better consistency across their line, I need an H in one a GG in another, etc...
