Bra fitting help » Boobs spilling out but not sure if changing the cup size will help
Freya » Deco Moulded Half Cup Bra (4232) » 36E 36:6
My boobs are spilling out, but otherwise this bra seems to fit well. Not sure if it's worth exchanging for another size and what other size to try. I'm willing to accept if the style just doesn't work for my boobs.
For reference, in my profile I have a 38F Flitelle Rose Padded Balconette which is definitely too big, hence I'm not sure what cup size I should be.

Put it this way... I can't guarantee that any size of this bra will be a PERFECT match for your shape, but I can certainly promise you that sizing up will at least improve the fit a great deal! This amount of quadding indicates a very very very undersized cup. This is fundamentally a fairly shallow bra, which is done intentionally as it's intended to smoosh the bosoms in and upwards a little to create the mounded appearance usually desired in half cup bras. Since you're quite center full and have an uncommonly tall-projected shape, rather like the blogger Bras I Hate, you will be better off if you remember to take this into account--you'll need a slightly larger cup in any bra that's shallower if you want to make it work with your shape. Go up two cup sizes, see how that works.
Your Flirtelle is an iffy fit because the band is too large, which throws everything off--it's probably a hair too full coverage compared to what you might prefer, but the effect is magnified due to the overtightened straps (don't feel that's said critically--most people do find themselves forced to overtighten straps when the band is too loose, it's the only way to get any lift. However, it does pull the whole cup pretty vigorously upwards, stretching it up over the breast and distorting the whole cup vertically.) I think in most full cup or seamed bras, 11.5 is a pretty decent depth. For cups that are molded and unseamed, or otherwise shallow, 12" is a safer bet. For the band, you're not super squishy, clearly, but you do have a heavy enough bust to want to err on the side of a tighter band to get enough support. So a 36" will be as big as you want to go in most brands, unless they run notoriously small.
