Bra fitting help » Help with Comexim sizes and alterations (gore height/width, cup height/deepness)

Comexim » Ingrid Plunge Bra (289) » 65M 30:13

Main problem with this bra for me is the gore. I have very close set breasts (basically no space between them until my IMF) and the gore floats due to height and also possibly width. There is also gapping along the edge of the cups and when I "manually" tack the gore I get a small amount of quadding. Tried this bra in a 30JJ, it didn't tack either and it appeared too big when I forced it to. I can post the link to an imgur album with photos of me in it if it'll help.

What I'd like help with is what EU size I should get? (I'll be ordering directly from Comexim.) And what alterations should I request to get the best fit? So far I'm thinking reduced gore height, straps moved in, and maybe overlapping wires (to accommodate inner fullness from close-setness). Deeper and reduced cups was suggested by a poster on ABTF.

TIA for any help, really hoping to get things right on my first order with it! :)

Note: Although I have this bra down as the band being too tight I purchased 3 other Comexim bras in a 30 band and all fit with the not uncommon new bra "wee bit too snug" feel. This particular bra however was strangely tight af! Like holy guacamole Batman! I needed an extender to get it hooked. If I recall correctly the unstretched length was an inch shorter than the others. Basically I'm saying I can in fact wear a 30 band despite this boa constrictor firm band.
