Bra fitting help » Wrinkles at bottom, gaping at top.

Elomi » Mariella Banded Bra (EL4420) » 42E 42:6

Issue resolved

I need a bra shape with a more narrow cup, a shorter cup, and more projection.

Original problem

While trying out bras in my "recommended" sizes, I keep running into the same problem - wrinkles/fabric pulling at the bottom of the cups and gaping or bagginess at the top of the cups. This bra seems to fit the best out of the many I have tried, but I still have those issues.

When looking at the front view of this bra, you can see the wrinkles in the lace at the top left of the left cup. Since this bra has a stretchy lace on the top that kind of 'forms' to my body a bit, the gape is not quite as obvious but if you look through my other bras on here the gaping can be a lot more obvious. In this particular bra, it just feels really baggy up top and not quite as filled out. If I gently tug the fabric up and over towards the strap, the bagginess is 'fixed'.

When looking at the angle view of this bra, you can see the wrinkles/pulling in the bottom of the cups.

Does this mean I need more projection? I made sure to 'scoop and swoop'.
