I think I am almost ready to throw in the towel when it comes to Curvy Kate's Showgirls line. First, my boobs are too wide apart and the cups are too shallow in the Tempt Me, then my nipples practically fall out of the Elegance, and now… this.
The Tease Me [showgirl Collection] itself is quite lovely but not my usual style, what with the bows and ribbon and things. The fabric is soft yet supportive. I was worried that the lace and stuff would be scratchy. I'm not sure what clothing I would normally wear this bra under, ... definitely nothing tight at the top, because the ribbons make for lumps under fabric. I wore it all day under a loose fitting shirt.
The bra itself is mostly comfortable. I say "mostly" because while the underwires themselves don't dig in to my armpits, they pretty much end right at the armpits, but then there's these twee bows right at the end of the underwires and guess where THEY go. So if I decide to keep the Tease Me, those things will be snipped right off. The band is a little on the stretchy side. The gore comes dangerously close to being higher than I like. The wires do encircle the shape of my whole breast, though. If my torso was any shorter, the Tease Me would not work at all. I feel like it, just like the others I've tried from the Showgirls line, is made for someone with a longer torso. But, overall comfort is good. I took a nap in it, and I didn't want to rip it off by the end of the day.
The Tease Me likes to take my boobs and lift them upwards. It doesn't push them towards the center, if anything, they are still set wide, just shoved upwards in an almost impressive display: "Here they are, my boobs". Like, I could take a brush in Photoshop and paint a perfect circle around each boob in my photo of the front view. But from the side? This is where it looks like to me that the bra is actually also pushing my breasts inward, causing the profile to be a bit... off. So I'm thinking the Tease Me is a tad too shallow and wide for me.
Basically, the Tease Me turns my rack into a rectangle with two half circles on top. Imagine a "B" that was been turned 90º counter-clockwise and ta-da, those are my boobs.
Maybe I will be a glutton for punishment and continue my hunt for the Thrill Me [showgirl Collection] -- maybe it's a good thing I can't find it in my size lol.

I was told that this bra was really good for FOT, firm breasts, and that alot of people with softer breasts have had bad experiences with this bra. I have even fulness, round, and very soft tissue. My breasts are pretty high on my torso and I'm a but more center full.
I really don't know why, all the seams and reviews point to this being a bad fit for me. But I really love everything about this bra. It was alerted when I got it, the straps were moved in about 1.5 centimeters, and the sides were lowered by 1 centimeter. I think it would still be ... a very good fit for me even without the alterations, but I would do the same to any new tease me bras I got.
The band is so soft and comfortable, though it's a little slacky on me. I probably need a 28GG, but this is the one I have. The straps are fully adjustable, and also very soft and stretchy, they feel thicker than they are. The seams on these cups are perfect, and gives me a beautiful hemispheric shape. The wires are among the closest to working of any of my bras, being only a little too wide for me. And the color is just to die for.
The bra itself it gorgeous, but it has some issues. The fit is near perfect, however the lace across the top of the cup shows through nearly everything. Which is agitating, because I would probably wear this bra every day if it didn't poke through shirts (I still do).
I would recommend this to women with similar breasts, very comfortable and durable. Great job curvy kate!

My husband LOVES this bra on me. However band is too big/cups too small. Rides up in back, even hooked on smallest option. Major quad boob. Boobs fall out constantly. Closest to my Harlequin (now called Masquerade) by Panache Nemesis that was my all time favorite bra (BAD DOG! Do not eat my bras!) Hoping to find a 28GG or 28H

Too wide and shallow to be a great technical fit on me unfortunately, but alongside the matching panty it makes a very fun bedroom or novelty bra. Like the rest of the Showgirl line, it has very extravagant decoration, super soft cushy inner lining, and a lovely vintage-y appeal which is awesome in a full-bust bra! I quite like it for beneath heavier knits in the winter, or in general whenever a little extra frill is warranted! However, the high wings tend to really irritate my armpits over the course of the day, so this one is best only for short-term wear.

I love these bras--I have two in the same size, different colors. They are very comfortable and are SO pretty! The fit is good and I like the way I feel when I wear them.

Bought this bra before I knew my correct size. It is a bit too big in the band for me, and a little small in the cups. Otherwise a great bra, good quality, and you get nice round boobs.

The Tease Me is hands down the prettiest bra I own! With that being said, it does have some minor issues. First of all, WHY ARE THERE RIBBONS AT THE ARM PITS. My armpits don't need to be decorated, thank you. Definitely will be snipping these off, seeing as they show through clothing and serve no real purpose. On a similar note, if you're petite, do keep in mind that the straps are fairly wide set. I'm 5'0" and my shoulders are only about 15" across, so I have learned to accept that correctly fitting bras will always have wide set straps in comparison to my body. It's ... a minor discomfort, but I just don't think that bras in my size are made with a petite frame in mind.
My ribcage is about 31.5", and normally I wear a 32FF in Panache/Cleo, and 30G in Freya. I was told that Curvy Kate bras run large in the band, so I sized down to my sister size, 30G. The band is perfect on the loosest hook for now, although I'm actually thinking that I might have been able to squeeze into a 28GG, even if I may have needed an extender. As for shape: the lift is AWESOME. Definitely more lift/cleavage than the Freya Deco (4234) , although it doesn't seem to center the boobs as much. And, you should be able to tell by the appearance, but you can't wear this under a t-shirt because... pretty ribbons and lace. Also, I do have to note that this is the SOFTEST bra I have. seriously, the molding isn't as stiff as the Deco, and is so, so comfortable! Very well made.
TL;DR: Hot bra, great cleavage, size down in band to sister size, ribbons at arm pits, wide set straps if you're a small adult, soft and smooth cups, well made.
