For me this bra, and well, almost all Curvy Kate Showgirl bras, is too large in the band. Everyone I've heard needs to size down a bandsize (and up at least a cup) in the Thrill me, but since there are no 26HH I'll have to do with this.
However, it does fit proberly on the tightest hooks when it's new and I will alter it as soon as possible. I still find it good enough to be worth the money as I bought it on sale. All my comments will be based on the fit new with hooks on the closest set of eyes. I will update this ... after the alterations.
When it comes to the Thrill Me you really have to be careful. There are bras out from several seasons and the fit differs a lot. This one (wine/navy) fitted me perfectly in the cups, but the ivory/black one is a cup size larger, even though it looks the same otherwise.
In this one the support is great. Of course, with a half cup bra you can't expect the same support as with a full cup one but still it's great. The cup isn't moulded but padded and keeps it's shape even off. The satin cups look faboulous and the colour might be more red than I thought but I still love it.
The wires go quite high in the front, which may be an issue for some. For me it usually stops hurting after some wearing. The straps sits quite far apart in the front, almost too far apart for me. This does however help with the shape and could also be a bit less wide if wearing the correct size.
It gives cleavage. The amount is probably determined by the boob shape and the size, but for me, who usually don't get huge amount of cleavage I think it's just right. Since it's so low cut you can usually choose size based on how much oumph you want, but I suggest go with a cup size larger and a band size smaller than your usual Curvy Kate unpadded-bra size, if it is the wine/navy one you're looking for.
-Band size one size larger than usual
-Unconsistent cup sizing between different colours
-Many changes in the model
-Straps positions a bit too far out on the shoulders.

This is a about the Ivory/Black Thrill me, for other colours, check those reviews.
This is my third Thrill Me, and yes, it's different too. Curvy Kate is in general quite consistent, but that doesn't apply to the Thrill Me in the Showgirl Collection unfortunatly.
This one is absolutly lovely. The feel of it is great, it's much more supportive than I've ever expected and gives a really nice uplifted cleavage.
However, that doesn't help when it just doesn't fit. It is known that the Showgirl range tends to be a lot larger in the band, but that this one is a lot larger in the cups than the wine/navy ... even though they look identical, that was unexpected. After comparing the wires (there will be a picture up soon) I've realised that this 28H actually has the wires of a Curvy Kate 28HH, and strangely enough I'm not the only one that have encountered this problem, this model is actually a cup size larger than the wine/navy one.
The straps is a bit wide on me on this one too, which probably is due to the too large band size. I still wear this. With some extra padding the cups are fine, and well, when the tightest hooks don't make it I'll alter it instead. This is how good this bra is.
I can certainly recommend this, but, if your interested do take the time to choose size wisely. One band size down and in most cases, keep your ordinary cup size. This one runs big compared to other Thrill Me so be careful.

I liked this bra when i first got it. It fit much better than my previous 30F/ 30FF bras (clearly!)
The band is very loose - i measure 29 inches under bust, and this 28 is way too big, it slides even on the tightest hooks.
The straps are super stretchy - and the clasp moves of its own accord which is not great.
The central gore does not lie flat on me, i think it is because the back is so loose. In addition, i don't think that the cups are deep enough for my boobs, although i do not think that going up a size would fix the problem, i think then it would just gap at the top....
i like it a lot, it is very pretty and luxurious. However, i must say that i am not enamored with the quality.- the elastic on the straps has started to wrinkle after only 1 month of wearing/ washing the bra about 5-6 times.

Even though my underbust circumference shrank and I now have to do my grape/jade version of this bra up on the tightest hook, I still wanted another while it was going cheap. I really like this bra! It's pretty, it's comfortable, and it goes surprisingly well under a lot of things despite the frills.
This bra has truly bizarre sizing. I feel like I could go up another cup size, although I won't because this current one doesn't give me too much trouble.

I'm soooo glad I tried to find the right size. I first had the azure/plum in 30FF and it was completely wrong. Just looking at the pictures I took of both, you can see a massive difference in shape.
The cups are really nice and soft, and the design is so pretty. I was afraid that I might not get the signature cleavage of the Thrill Me in this size, but I tried on a low-cut t-shirt and it wasn't the case at all. Well, as much as I can ever achieve cleavage, anyway.
It's surprisingly comfortable for something that looks so glamorous.

Awesome fit. I didn't understand what what people meant by "cakes on a plate" until this bra. Perfect, rounded shape. The lace is actually not that bad under shirts. I usually wear a 30G-GG and the 28H is perfect with an extender, so probably runs about 1/2-1 cup size small. Pretty colors, too. I have the blue/pink and it's a pretty deep cornflower blue, hard to photograph.

This is a beautiful bra with great detail in the material. The fit was not good on me but may be good for someone else.

I loved the uplift and cleavage of this bra when it fit better... but now it's too big
This is a vertical seamed balconette bra designed to give cakes on a plate cleavage. I love to wear it under clothes as an everyday bra but I know a lot of people prefer it as a bedroom bra.

Finally, I got my hands on a Curvy Kate Thrill Me - and in purple! Which is the color I really wanted. Many times I saw it on sale on brastop or on ebay but never in my size. But then I got lucky, pinkwonder had a Thrill Me and wanted to trade for my too-shallow Cleo Darcy Padded Balconette (6821). I know it was a gamble because the Curvy Kate Tempt Me (SG4001) and Curvy Kate Elegance (CK1401) did abysmal things to my poor boobs, due to how wide and shallow the cups are. I fared a ... little better with the Curvy Kate Tease Me [showgirl Collection] (SG2001) although there was an odd flattening effect from the side, while at the same time my breasts were pushed up to my neck.
The Curvy Kate Thrill Me [showgirl Collection] (SG3001) is cut pretty similar to the Tease Me, but it seems like it's a little deeper. This also could be because I went up a cup size and down a band size, because the Tease Me bordered on quadboob territory. It is a delicious shade of purple with jade ribbon trim. There is also a purple net ruffle going along the top of the cups. In typical Showgirls fashion, the ribbon and trims seem over-the-top and not very practical for everyday wear. But I was determined to wear this bra yesterday so I found a dress that worked more or less with the bra. This dress has a ruched top; the looseness of the fabric hid any lumps that the ribbons might cause. The armholes are a little big, so you could see my bra there a little bit, but people are just going to have to get over the fact that I wear a bra.
The Thrill Me is almost too wide for me. The cups are also a little on the shallow side, so there is a minimizing effect from the side, similar to the Tease Me, but not as bad. The gore comes up pretty high so this is not a bra for low cut tops. I ended up removing those dang bows that sprout from the ends of the cups because all they do is end up in my armpits. They strike me as a pointless, chafe-inducing detail.
The band is very stretchy for a 28, but I've come to expect that from Curvy Kate. I've decided I'm going to hang on to this bra, but sell/exchange my other Curvy Kates. (I'm still on the fence about the Tease Me! It's just so impractical...)
