What meaning does くらい or くらいに have after a verb?

For example, 壊れるくらいに would mean...?

よろしくお願いします!

I'd guess it means "to the extent that", so 壊れるくらいに would mean "to the point where (something) breaks". I could be wrong, so wait for the experts to confirm or correct this!

Yeah, that's correct. It's almost the same to ~ほど.

壊れるくらい(に)抱きしめた=壊れるほど抱きしめた
