Bra fitting help » Wrinkling in upper lace, but so close to fitting! Recommendations?
Curvy Kate » Ellace Balcony Bra (CK4401) » 30GG 30:10
Tried on different bras that fit better.
Hello again everyone!
After ordering and trying on six different bras from Amazon Prime Wardrobe (Cleo Hettie 30GG, Panache Jasmine 30GG, Curvy Kate Ellace 30GG, Curvy Kate Princess 30GG, Freya Fancies Balcony 30GG, and Fantasie Smoothing Moulded 30G), it seems that the Curvy Kate Ellace in 30GG fits the best.
I only have a couple gripes -- the gore doesn't seem to lie completely flat (soft tack?) and the upper lace part of the cups seem to slightly wrinkle/gap.
This bra is the only one that doesn't have any wrinkling at the bottom or outer edges of the cups. It's so close to perfect!
Based off of this fit, does anyone have any bra recommendations for me? Should I keep this bra?
I believe I'm an even 2/5s (edit: now thinking I'm between VFoB 1/6s and FoB 2/6s) when properly supported, am quite center-full, projected, and have tall, slightly narrow roots. Plunges may work the best for me.
Thank you for reading!

Should you keep it? Well, first question would not be about whether there are a few wrinkles below or to the sides but "Are you comfortable"? lol. If it isn't quite comfortable, return and keep looking. It seems to me the wires go quite far around your body for someone who has narrow roots. Not only can this become uncomfortable when you don't have a ton of padding, but this suggests there's some unused cup volume, as part of the cup fabric is really just stretched around your sides. A 30 band on someone so slender and lean who measures 30" comfortable ribcage also would likely feel too tight for most in the optimal cup volume (a too-small band can masquerade as a just-right one if there is extra cup fabric and wire being stretched along your sides instead of containing boob tissue!). If you've tried 32s in smaller cups and found the fit lacking, I suspect that may be because you've been trying brands with wider wires and less projection in the cups than you really need for a great fit. If you really like this one, first thing I'd suggest is to loosen the straps (I think the wrinkling in the upper cup is due to snug straps) and see how that looks.
Shape-wise, it's possible that you have extraordinarily firm tissue that isn't ever really "shaped" when supported in a bra, but if you don't, I would say this design is providing too little support, creating the impression of a shape that is lower and more east-west than you'd be in a bra with narrower wires and more projected, but also overall slightly smaller cups. I think once you find a shape and size that is more precisely suited to your anatomy, you might find your shape is more centered and "round/even" when supported.

Huh, I would have thought very FOB. But very projected. Oh, but tall roots, so while your breasts are not full on top, your breast tissue goes very high. Normally for that shape I think half cups, but I think they run shallow, so idk.
