Bra fitting help » is the fit right?
Curvy Kate » Ellace Balcony Bra (CK4401) » 30G 30:9
Try a deeper cup bra
gore doesn't tack (slightly only)
Is the fit right otherwise?

CK bands are quite firm, and with your measurements, in a 30 band you are using a +0.5" band fit principle which is much tighter than necessary for most women as slim as you (1.3" of squish difference between tight and loose ribcage indicates very little flesh on the ribs). I am not too sure how it will fit with an extender but I'd advise taking more photos with one on so we can better judge how the cup shape and size works on you when everything isn't distorted.
The other adjustment I'd suggest would be loosening the straps. Here in the pics we can see they are so tight they are digging into your shoulders, and pulling the band up at the back as well.
My guess is that you would still probably fit better in a bra designed with narrower cups and more center depth but that this isn't too radically far from the shape you need.

If you think the band is comfortable then I think it fits well enough, I can't see any signs of straining (though ofc if you're uncomfortable then it is too small). However, in pic #5 you're getting in cup quadding and out of cup quadding. These combined with the not tacking gore make me think the cup is too small - I think you should size up to a GG.
