Bra fitting help » 2nd try, still not right :(
Comexim » Victoria Half Cup » 80H 36:8
Requested reduced cup height but dont know if it was done. Even with sizing down from my last attempt this still has a lot of empty space at the top. I dont know if it's too big, or just too tall?? I'm also thinking that this style may just not be right for me. Any I've tried that looked good really hurt....

When I have a bra that fits like this, can't return it, have paid some money for it, and I like the look and feel of it, I have two things I try. First I try an angled cookie. If I am not happy with the fit and the gapping, then I try a small alteration at the gore to pull the top of the cup in to the midline. This serves two purposes - It tightens up the gapping across the top of the breast and it brings the straps closer together. I can often get a better fit with a bra that I otherwise like. The lace is lovely so might be worth a try...

Did you email Comexim about the reduced cup size not being done on this bra or did you just email about the Yellow Bird cup size discrepancy?

This cup height has been reduced. An 80H Comexim typically has a 6.6" cup height (examples: https://www.bratabase.com/browse/comexim/sonia-half-cup-406/80H/, https://www.bratabase.com/browse/comexim/burgundy-half-cup-357/80H/, https://www.bratabase.com/browse/comexim/basic-half-cup/80H/)
I'm afraid this bra is definitely too big. If the band is comfortable to you, then I'd recommend you try at least a cup if not two cup sizes down. That will also help with the strap placement.
That being said, are you center full? A couple of the pics make me concerned that you'll end up with other fit issues with this style.
How would you describe your boobs? Tall roots? Short?
Shallow? Medium projection, self-supporting, pendulous?
Soft tissue or firm tissue? Narrow or wide roots?
Your other fit request appears to be a better shape for you (even though one of the cups is too big).
If you want to keep this bra (it is beautiful), I'd try jazzypants suggestions - cookies or alterations to bring in the cup a bit.
