Bra fitting help » So close! (Can't get wire to stay in IMF, strap grooves)

Issue resolved

Need to try a lower/narrower gore, possibly a longer band if the cup issue is fixed.

Original problem

This bra is such a good fit -- almost no armpit muffin, beautiful round shape, and a pretty comfortable band -- except for one or two things. One, the wire just won't stay in my IMF on the inner half of each breast. I can push it up, but it won't stay there, which leads to some uncomfy settling. Also the straps are leaving grooves in my shoulders. I know that can mean one needs to size down a band (34H), but it seems hard to believe -- it's pretty tight already! I can't tell if there is any overspill on the outside edge or if that's just fat -- at this point I trust Bratabase rather more than my eyes. I do know the cup width is slightly different on the two sides, leading me to wonder if something is distorting. My measurement skills are still improving as well.

Please, tell me -- what's going on here? Is this as good as it gets, or do I need to change something?
