Measurements for this bra:

Wire length: 25 cm
Cup sep.: 2 cm
Strap width: 2 cm
Looks: The bra is pretty though I could do without the frill above the lace. The look it gives is not as front and center as my Ewa Michalak but is still nice. I'm pretty bottom heavy so the boobs on a plate look doesn't really happen for me. There was a little gapping on top (I think from ... the top of the cup being a smidge wide) but I tightened the ribbon up a tiny bit and that fixed that issue. The wrinkles are cosmetic and I don't think I've seen a Thrill Me without them.
Fit: The band is loose for a 28 but since it is taller (3 hooks vs 2 hooks) it seems more stable. The band is mesh and comfy. For a great fit I should probably use a tighter hook as it would pull the wire a little wider but since there is no smaller band I leave it on the loosest hook. The bottom of the cup is pretty shallow and the wires are wide - which works for me as I have a pretty wide root. The longer wire (in comparison to my 28F Cleo Lucy, 28F Deco Half-cup, and 65FF EM CH Lato) really works for me as it keeps my side boob from escaping above the cup. The straps are completely adjustable.
I wore it to work and it was comfy all day. I didn't really need to readjust very often as the longer wire was able to keep my boobs contained.
