Pretty darn close to a perfect fit, might do better in a 28GG?

Used to fit
I just transferred my Parfait Charlotte for this bra and I'm SO loving it!! I wasn't even looking for it. I was just trying to find a happy home for my Charlotte bra and was willing to exchange for anything in a 28G. I must have seen this bra HUNDREDS of times before but always seemed to overlook it, as nothing extraordinary about it ever caught my eye. But man, was I wrong! I completely underestimated this bra!! It's absolutely gorgeous!! So elegant, and simple, yet sexy and supportive all in one!
First things first, I have a very narrow, petite underbust (26"), and bras are usually either WAY too tight or just too loose...the band on this is PERFECT! It's very tight and snug but just stretchy enough to where I can breathe comfortably without feeling like my ribcage is about to implode! I've had it on the loosest hook for several hours now and it hasn't budged! I'd prob say the band is my fav aspect of this bra. I couldn't even attempt to hook it on the tightest hook yet.
The cups are pretty tall, at least taller than I was expecting. But for once I'm not quad boobing out of the thing. The top of the cup lies perfectly against the top of my boob. However, if I scoop n swoop too much I do start to spill out over the top. I wonder if maybe a 28GG might be a little better. But my only gripe about the cup is the empty fabric at the bottom, which is causing very minor wrinkling, tho I fill out the cup. Strange. But it's hardly noticeable, esp in this black colorway. The other thing I don't quite care for is how low the cup comes, the wires are sitting directly on my ribs, maybe that's what's causing the wrinkling ? I def feel like ALL of my boob is encased in the sides and I think the placement of the straps has a lot to do with that. They are pretty far out but it seems to be working better than if they weren't, if that makes sense. The straps are not fully adjustable but it's not a problem for me. They are thin but don't seem to be digging in.
The gore is fairly tall (about 3" or so) and it's not causing me or my close-set boobs a problem, so far. I will update after wearing it for a full day. But with the gore being so high it kind of prevents me from obtaining any kind of cleavage whatsoever, but that's not what I was going for anyway. Instead, this bra provides an amazing lift. It reminds me much like the Curvy Kate Showgirl collection, but my CK Thrill Me couldn't hold a candle to this bra https://d28qt14g3opchh.cloudfront.net/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" />
This bra is just so darn beautiful that I want one in every color now! I would def recommend this bra, esp for even or FOT shapes. I'm not so sure there is enough immediate projection for FOB, and it will prob gap at the top. But all in all, this is a very pretty, shiny, well-constructed, sturdy bra. And the briefs are even more comfy than the bra, for anyone who might be interested (I have the briefs in a UK size 8). I almost feel like I made out like a bandit in this exchange and had no idea! Lol, THANK YOU!!
Update: after trying this on again, I don't think it's gonna work for my shape. I need more of plunge. The gore did start to bother me after a bit, and it just doesn't look as good as when I first tried it on. My boobs grew about another inch in the bust so maybe sizing up in the cup might do the trick. So sad, it's such a beautiful bra with a near-perfect fit.
