This bra is stunning to look at and touch - the fabric is a lovely soft satin and the bow detailing is very pretty. However, it's not just one for the bedroom! It's also comfy and supportive enough for everyday wear.
The band is ever so slightly too large for me and I would recommend that you size down in the band if possible (sadly it was not possible for me as they do not make a 26). The cups fit my smaller breast very well and my larger one with a small amount of overspill, but this is masked well by the frills and is not significant ... enough for me to want to size up in the cups. In terms of shape, I find this bra flattens me out a bit, but does give a nice amount of uplift. The frills flatten out under clothing so they are not too noticeable unless you're wearing a very tight t-shirt.
I initially found the centre wires dug in a little and the straps slightly too wide for my narrow shoulders, but both these issues seem to have disappeared with a couple of washes. I now find this bra very comfortable for the whole day and I will definitely be purchasing another colour.

I own this bra in Ivory and love it, in part because it fits me very well. Unfortunately the fit is not the same in this colourway (Wine/Navy). The cups are considerably smaller and cut in at the top and sides. Otherwise, it is very pretty to look at, the straps sit well and are fully adjustable and the wires do not poke. If I could size down in the band I would, but I find this with all the Showgirl collection and the bras are still wearable for me, they will just not last me as long once they stretch.
Thanks to other reviews on here I was ... aware of the sizing discrepancy between the colours and ordered this one in a 28FF and a 28G. See my other reviews concerning other colours/sizes! Between the two sizes I ordered in this colour I noticed some quality issues. For starters, one of the two was missing the central bow, suggesting they are either not attached strongly or there was a manufacturing error. There are also lots of loose threads where the cup joins the band and one of the ribbons running across the cups is too long and bunches up.

I know this doesn't technically fit me, but I deliberately ordered a size small because I have issue when I actually do fit, the cup fits weird, whereas when it's a size small, the shape is much better. In that respect, I'm taking the whole "bedroom bra" thing to heart. But honestly, it actually fits better than any of the larger sizes, because the gaping at the top is weird. I don't get any quad-boob, just a small amount of escaped "arm pit fat."
Now that I've explained my decision, on to the good stuff! The shape I get in this is so nice and ... round. Because the bra is too small, the frills on the top of the cup actually lay flat on my breast tissue, but it doesn't cut it.
The blue is a bit of a tacky color, but it's fun and the bra itself is well made, though sometimes it creaks. The band is really loose for a 28, but that's to be expected in Showgirl ranges, so I'm not exactly surprised. I think this would fit someone who measures about a 31" around the underbust best.
The materials are really comfortable, and I don't get any weird uncomfortable digging. The hooks in the back are better than what I usually expect with Curvy Kate and Flirtelle (I feel like this is their downfall). Because I'm smack dab in between a 28 band and a 30 band, usually, the hooks on 28 bands get uncomfortable and I have too, much sooner than I'd like, go on to the second set of hooks so that the hooks don't dig into my back too much and I have fabric between the hooks and my skin.

Finally an attractive large cup push up bra that can be worn under singlets and dresses. The Curvy Kate Thrill me gives me a nice push up whilst still providing enough separation to be comfortable. The 28 band sits nice and firm and is very comfortable.
I found the 28FF to be way too small in the cup as this bra has very shallow cups at the bottom with the majority of the depth sitting at the top. I guess that is what makes this bra so nice on. The shallow bottom is designed to push your breasts up whilst providing room up the top so that you ... do not get a squashed pancake look but rather a curvy rounded look. However, because of this design, you really do need to get the perfect fit otherwise the shape will be very odd. Even the size 28G was too small and I needed the GG.
As far as support goes, most push up bras are useless in that department, whereas I find that this bra gives at least some staying power to my bust so that I am not totally flopping around everywhere. Not sure how much support it would offer for those in larger band sizes though. Hoping that Curvy Kate brings back this design ASAP!!!!

I bought this bra used but in good condition so it's either stretched out quickly by the previous owner or it's a wide band because I've got on the tightest setting already. The cups also come up small but this is hard to see on the (grainy) photos because the ruffles hide it. The bra itself gives great uplift and a nice shape but it couldn't be worn under a t-shirt as the ruffles on the top would show through. I bought this on the cheap to try it out but unfortunately, balcony bras do not suit me at all as the wires come up too high and dig into my sternum. It would look lovely on someone who actually suited this shape.

I had some quadboob on the left side for this so I should probably size up.
Very wide shallow cups that flattened me out. I didn't really like the shape under clothing.

Yet another failed Curvy Kate experiment. Given that no brick and mortar retailers ANYWHERE near me sell Curvy Kate, I'm stuck buying sale items online, all over the map, without a real clue as to what will fit. So far, I have struck out in every line and every size.
Aside from my fruitless process of elimination, this is a great bra. It's in the light blue/plum colorway, which is quite charming. Thrill Me also seems to be one of the more accessible bras (read: day-wearable) of the Showgirl line, since its embellishments - a soft mesh ruffle and embroidered line and ribbon across the ... top of the cup - are not as prominent and less likely to show under clothes than, say, the Tease Me's lace, ruffles, bows, ribbons, etc. The construction of this bra is fantastic, and it provides gravity-defying lift and great cleavage. That said, since it is at least a cup-size too small, I feel like I am always on the verge of literally popping out of this bra. The top edge of the cup seems to land juuuuust shy of nipple level, and only a bit of arm-raising or bending down will lead to escape.
I wonder if this would have fit if it were a 28G or GG. C'est la vie.

This just ran a little small on me. I love me CK Showgirls, but this is an older model, and I think it runs smaller than average. I need a 28G in this one for sure. Cute bra, though.

For whatever reason, I prefer the fit of my blue/pink Thrill Me. The cups on this white one seem to jut out more or they are a little bigger.
Other than that, it is the same. It's a super comfy bra, rather stretchy but gives good support and a nice shape. The frills make it hard to wear with some tops. I really like the elastic straps and the wide band.

I've heard mixed things about CK bras, that they don't work for some people. I must be made for them since this is my best fitting and most comfortable bra.
I got this is in my normal size and it fits fine, I could probably wear a 28G in the white version which seems to have smaller cups. The bra itself is silky and so pretty! I have it in blue and white. The band is fine on me. I seem to be inbetween 28 and 30, so a loose 28 works fine on me.
The cups are shallow and wide which is just what I need. This ... bra gives me a great uplifted look and puts all my tissue up where I need it. It gives me a lovely round shape. I do like the three hooks, it feels secure. The straps are also so comfortable and don't fall down like other bras.
My only issue is the lacey details make it unwearable with some tops. I can also see how the underwires may make some women uncomfortable. I don't know how to describe, they kind of come away from the body. They never bother me however.
I will continue to find CK bras since they work so well on me.
