Bra fitting help » quad boob galore and underarm spillage.
Cleo » Mimi Padded Balconnet Bra (8091) » 32FF 32:8
The cup for my larger boob is too small. There's significant underarm spillage. The band feels snug, but not uncomfortable. I reordered in a 32G. I can't tell if the style won't work for me or if the projection and wires are okay. I'm new at this and a little bewildered. So far no molded bra has worked for me. I thought this might work instead.

You could try it in a larger size to see if that helps, but I think part of the reason it's not fitting right is just a slight shape mismatch. Maybe you need something with taller wings so that it helps to contain the sides a bit more. You can also try bras with side support to see if that changes it.
When you take the bra off, do the wires follow along your IMF (inframmamary fold) or do they cut into breast tissue on the sides? If so, then you need something wider.

You were right to order a cup size up--this is definitely just too small in the cup, and arguably too snug in the band (it is definitely too small right now brand new, but I say 'arguably' because this is the type of fit situation where depending on personal preference and body composition, someone might choose a 34, OR a 32 and wear an extender for a while).
Having breast tissue on the side of your body is a natural anatomical feature, not a flaw nor something that is apt to change, so definitely look for wires that accommodate it!

I have this problem with this type of bra as well. i have found that if i have a bra with higher wings my breast tissue sits in the cups better.
