This bra has been discontinued many years ago, so this review is probably irrelevant. If you are ever able to get your hands on the Raspberry and Charcoal colorway, this is the one I am reviewing today. I've owned all of the Curvy Kate Tempt Me's in various colours and sizes, and this is the only one that is true to size (in this size range). Please note I did move the straps in on mine, and the band is altered which is reflected in the measurements.
The thing I loved the most about Tempt me is the soft fabric of the cups. It ... is very comfortable when it fits correctly, or almost correctly. I fell in love with the contrasting colours of the fabric and the lace. Today, I only own this one and the Black and Blue one in 28F since these two fit me the best.
Curvy Kate has replaced this bra with the Temptress (which is unfortunately now also discontinued, but may be easier to get). Tempt me fits me better due to the shallow cups. I've tried Temptress in 30E in the past, and it was a total disaster (review here: http://bra.pe/XOga/)

This was a suprise hit for me. I ordered this on the basis of a recommendation here on Bratabase. I was very skeptical that this would work for me as I tend to not get on well with plunges and totally expected I would end up sending it back.
When I first tried it on I felt quite exposed and wondered if I should have ordered the next cupsize up - I did already go up a cup more than I would normally wear as I the general consensus seemed to be that this runs small in the cup. However I've twisted, turned and contorted and cannot see any ... spillover anywhere outside the cup even in extreme positions so I think the problem is just that I am not used to wearing a bra that is so open in the center of my chest - I tend to stick with balconettes that come up higher in the middle. I actually prefer the wires sitting lower at the center gore as the ones that come up a little higher always poke my breast on the larger side (I have very little space between them). While this is usually not painful I would prefer for it not to happen.
I'm not really big on the cleavage look but this gives a nice amount of cleavage without looking obscene. The band on this feels a bit tighter than the thrill me I already own (which I had to fasten on the tightest hook from day one) so I expect it should wear better long term. The icing on the cake is that this bra is *really* comfy. I can see this becoming a favourite and will probably occupy space in my underwear drawer for a long time to come. Definitely a keeper!
ETA: Having now worn the bra for a whole day I am now seeing that crease in the base of the cup that others have mentioned, however it is only happening on one side (the bigger one). So I think this is probably what others have suggested, orange in a glass caused by the cup being too shallow in the bottom. My boobs are relatively firm so the fact that this isn't happening on the smaller side seems to confirm the orange in a glass theory. It's still a keeper - the crease wasn't visible under my work uniform and this bra is way too comfy to give up.

Really pretty bra that I kept even though it doesn't fit that well. The band doesn't fit and the cups are too small! It just didn't fit me well enough to provide adequate support so I never really wore this bra. Too bad because it's beautiful!

Even though I heard plunge bras aren't good for shallow breasts, I decided to give this one a try since it was so pretty and on sale. I read reviews and decided to size up from a 28DD to a 28E. I am glad I did! It fits great and is quite comfortable (now that I am stretching the band out a bit; the first time I wore it, I couldn't wait to take it off). It might be just a little too big because I am in between sizes, but it's not very noticeable. It doesn't give me any cleavage because of my shape, so I might try a 28DD in the future to see if I can get some cleavage, but I like it otherwise and decided to keep it.

I don't really like this bra.
The band is too big to be a 28, I don't really like the design and look of it, and it doesn't fit me.
