Bra fitting help » Do I need more immediate depth/projection at the wires?

Freya » Instinct Padded Half Cup Bra (1753) » 30F 30:7

Issue resolved

My plan is to try a band extender. If that doesn't fix the issue, I think it's either too small of a cup (move to 30FF) or not a good fit. I may end up swapping/selling once I get more bras and see how other ones fit. Thanks everyone!

Original problem

I thought this fit better until I took pictures and wore it at home! But now I see that the wire is about 1/2" to 1" below my IMF, and it's distorting the cups at the bottom. Because of the disortion, I think it's also making the wire dig into my right breast where the gore is. When I do scoop and swoop, I also see the my left nip is just below the top of the cup, but this settles with wear. The cups do lay flat against both breasts at the top as far as I could tell.

I need some suggestions on what direction to go and if this assessment is correct? How is this fit apart from the obvious lower cup issues? Do I need more "immediate projection/depth" at the wire, or is there something else going on?
