I bought this used from another Bratabase user. She has altered the bra - repositioned the straps to make it more centre and shorten the band. On my 27" ribcage, the altered band fits perfectly, very firm without being too tight. The repositioned straps looks like how my other well-fitting bra looks like on my shoulders, and I have broad enough shoulder to not have any problems with the width of the straps. I guess the original would be much wider.
Onto the bra fit. I usually wear 28G bras. However, knowing that the Showgirls range comes up very small in the cup, I bumped up to this size, ... 28H. The measurements given in Bratabase look like it will fit me. However, upon wearing it and after swooping and scooping, clearly the bra is still too small for my full on top boobs. I have to somehow tuck in my boobs a little to make it wearable. It seems I need a deeper cup. Masquerade Rhea in 28G fits me perfectly although the depth of that bra is less than this one (9.6" -> 10.2"). The wires also are too wide on me. For padded bras I find that 5.5" width are just nice for my boobs. This bra has a 6" width. I have empty spaces on the sides.
Fit aside, this bra is so damn comfortable. Now I know what it means when "hug the boobs" expression comes up. This is just it. Compared to Rhea, Tease Me is much more comfortable. The lace also doesn't show under my clothes, except for paper-thin tops. The shape it gives is round and very close to the body. I like that since it doesn't scream BOOBS! all over. I can use this as an everyday bra.
All in all, I will have to go up one cup size to 28HH to get a decent fit. I really don't like the really wide cups although I guess that's a given as you go up cup sizes.

Firstly - if you're not comfortable with the idea of showing off your assets, forget about this bra, unless you are one of these girls who like to wear sexy lingerie under demure outerwear!
As someone who has only recently developed into Curvy Kate territory, after years of hding my chest I'm just beginning to get used to the idea of displaying my curves, I'm going to have to buy a few more low cut tops to boost my confidence levels.
This bra gives me an amazing shape. My boobs look amazingly plump but well supported in this bra - usually the term 'plump' is regarded as derogatory, and I've ... never ever been described as 'plump' before, but in this context I'm loving it. I've heard the term 'cakes on a plate' used in reference to the decolletage on Showgirl bras - this is a very apt description. I find this bra very comfortable - it doesn't dig in anywhere, and the band is nicely tight round my chest. There is some light padding, but it doesn't add to the bulk and actually helps give a nice shape. Many of my friends with big boobs won't touch any sort of padding at all in the mistaken belief that they don't need padding - they should try this.
In short, I love this bra, gives me the WOW factor!

These bras really run on their own sizing- large in the back and small in the cup. I wore this when I was a 28H, the back ran too big (most bras do anyway), most people find they need to size up one or two cup sizes in this one and down a back (if theyre lucky enough to have the option to size down in the back...)
Beautiful bra and great cleavage tho!

This bra is SO beautiful, and I have wanted a CK Tease Me since I first found out about proper fit. Unfortunately, my boobs do not like it. Ugh!!! I am so disappointed! I LOVE the cleavage it gives, and the design is simultaneously super cute and super sexy. The red color is beautiful. However, because it is shallow at the base of the cup, my boobs push it down throughout the day. This means that while I start out not quadding at all and fitting into the bra perfectly, over the course of the day, I get some serious quad-boob. SO DISAPPOINTED. Does anyone know if there is a way I could get this to work for me? Would it be silly to suck it up when it comes to the poor fit just because I love the look of it?

This is the closest size I found, and almost the right fit.
Cups are just an odd shape, unlike the 28HH (but, 28HH being too big, I will probably have to try 28GG, which is my usual size).
I found that the sizes are so different between 28 and 30 band, then the cups just don't match when you get a sister size.
I still want a good fit with the Tease Me (this is only the 5th one..), and will keep on looking!

This bra is beautiful. Just stunning.
I literally just stared at it and gasped when I first opened the packaging.
The inside of the cup is so comfy. So, so soft.
I find some Curvy Kates to be a little too wide, with the wires rubbing under my armpits at times. This one can feel a little wide at times. It's also very bulky, with the abundance of lace and ruffle. It's very textured. I usually wear it under my bulkier sweaters or plaid shirts.
As a winter bra, under bulky sweaters and such, I really enjoy knowing I'm wearing this incredibly beautiful, sexy piece of lingerie.
I ... wish the straps were a little more rigid - they are made of a really comfortable elastic which is really soft, but I do wish they could offer a little more support at times.
The band is wonderful, though - three hooks!!! THREE HOOKS! I love a three hooked band. So much.
I don't get a ton of cleavage in this bra but the gore tacks really nicely and I get a very round shape from the side - it's a little square but I find it reminiscent of a corset type of lift, almost, which I happen to like.
I totally recommend the Tease Me, mostly because it's a good combination of comfy and just totally over the top gorgeous and sexy. Compared to the beige and black that DD+ women often have to wade through, the sexiness that Curvy Kate delivers with this bra is really refreshing.

I really like this bra. It's super pretty, and has been very comfortable.
I've had this bra for almost a year now. I had finally tried to measure myself and got a 28GG at first, about a month prior to getting this one. It ran really small, I had a bit of quad-boobage. But it lifted them up really well (yay, no more sag~) so round two, I sized up and got the red one in a 28H. It fits much, much better. I'm in the US ordering from the UK, so everything's a bit of a gamble.
The bra was a little rough and irritating at first, ... itchy even. Although it may be just because I was not used to lacy garments. It also squeaked when I moved for the first few weeks or so. After I broke it in, it was super comfortable. The Tease Me bra was the first "proper fitting" bra I was able to try, and so it was a little weird to adjust to, but totally worth it.
However, it does come a little high in the armpits, and now that I've worn it down a lot, it's starting to poke and irritate.
The band fit wonderfully. The 28GG's wires cut in a little bit, even on the furthest hook; but the 28H was perfectly fine.
My bras still haven't stretched out, I've worn them on the largest hook up until the last month or two.
I've only had the money to get three bras within the last year, so they've been rotated every week. Again, the only wear is in the armpits. Lately the wires have started to poke me, but it's been almost a year, and it has, regretfully, gone through the wash more than just a few times.

Feels softer than the black/wine version that I swapped. Band seems more stretchy too in this colour - I don't need an extender to feel comfortable. I prefer this colourway. Still wish these bras had less embellishment to be smoother under tops.

I bought this bra in a zulily sale a few months ago as part of an extended quest to find a half-cup that works for my boobs. I followed bratabase recommendations and sized up from the 28G/GG I was wearing at the time. Since then, I've gained some weight and am now probably closer to a 28H in bras that aren't so maddeningly shallow--meaning that the Tease Me is not a very good fit for my narrow root and projected boobs. It is, however, weirdly comfortable, even as my center fullness does battle with the gore and wins. I attribute this to the three-hook closure, the wide straps, ... and the fact that the gore is not at all stabby (because it's about a centimeter away from my chest).
I think the volume of the cups might be about right, it's just in all the wrong places for me. The band seems to fit snugly, without riding up, but I'm sure some of that is due to my boobs pushing the cups out in the front.
My shoulders are quite broad, so I don't have any problems with slipping straps (at least not while hopping shirtless around my bedroom--I can't speak to how they'd do over a full day of wear.) I can easily see them causing trouble for someone with narrow-to-average shoulders.
Halfcupquest continues apace.

Gorgeous bra, and I have tried it in a 28G, 28GG, and now a 28H. I wanted so much for it to fit, but I have reluctantly decided that it is just too shallow for me.
