I am full-on-bottom and this bra works for me.
They are pendulous/loose skin and the lower cup on this bra is so shallow it is nearly like a push-up shelf. I have enough loose skin/pliable tissue that the firmer breast tissue is pushed up to the open part of the bra for cakes-on-a-plate cleavage. A bra with a moderately shallow bottom would half-way fit my firmer/interior breast tissue and give me orange-in-a-glass, however this bra being so shallow it pushes everything up to the top. What I'm trying to point out is that oddly enough this bra is so shallow that it works better than a ... moderately shallow bra for my full-on-bottom breasts.
The underwire is in a well padded channel so it is forgettably comfortable and I appreciate the cup width.
I had to alter mine to reduce the gore width. I sewed the underwire channels together in the front without overlapping, and the sturdy fabric made the operation very simple. I then had to add a purchased bra band hook extender to lengthen the band to make up for the length I took out of the gore.
The ruffles at the top of the cup show under clothes. However, when I paired this bra with a risque little black dress that the bra did not quite fit under, I actually appreciated the ruffles poking out and adding some cutesy/retro style. It make it look intentional instead of simply not having a bra that hid completely under the cut of the dress.
Tl;dr: Despite being shallow, having ostentatious ruffles, and needing a gore alteration, still works very well. Gave a FOB complimentable cleavage.

I have the peach/plum color.
This is the first CK bra that has ever fit me in the cups. The cups are a nice shape. They are open on top and don't gape. The cups aren't too tall which is good if you're petite. Even though it's a 30 band it doesn't ride up at all.
I like the 28F CK Tease me and Thrill me bras, but the straps are really wide. I don't have this problem with this size. The strap width is just right. https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" />
I definitely want to alter this band because the 28 band is so much better on my Tease Me bra.

My review is for the CK Thrill Me in jade/fuchsia, a padded halfcup bra with two vertical seams.
The cups are shallow on the buttom, and push the boob tissue upwards, creating a 'cakes on a plate' kind of cleavage.
However, they are not as shallow on bottom as the Curvy Kate Tease Me [showgirl Collection] (SG2001).
The cups are also open on top, but they didn't gape as much as in the Tease Me.
The cups run small-ish, so if you're looking for cleavage, stay with your usual size. If you want a bra that fits well and doesn't squish that much (but may be more covering and less ... cleavage-y), go up a cup size.
Halfcups always have wide wires compared to other bra styles. The wires of the Thrill Me are, however, among the narrowest of all halfcups I tried in that size. They are a smidge narrower than Cleo's wires, and also feel narrower than the wires of Freya's halfcups. They are sturdy and don't stretch with the bra band. This may add to the impression of narrow wires.
The band runs very stretchy for a 30 band. It stretches to >32" easily. If you're looking for a tight band, you should go down one sister size.
