Bra fitting help » Bra looks like it fits, feels tight?
I think I'm going to size up to 55HH/60H in the same half cup style.
Does this fit? It looks like it fits but it squishes my breasts, if you look closely at the angle shot, the breast tissue looks kinda pushed down. To me, at least. Feels too shallow, I need more projection, I think. I just wonder if I size up to 55HH, will it fix the issue? Or would that be too big? My leaning bust is 34.4 (approx.), standing is 33.6 and with the bra on, the bust measurement was 33. Is that normal?
I'm really confused. (This issue applies to the other 2 3HCs I have but I didn't wanna make a fit issue post for all 3)

I think what's happening here is that your firm breast tissue and this padded bra are clashing a bit. In essence: the bra isn't molding to the shape of your breast but neither is your breast molding to the shape of the bra. It very well may be a bit small or shallow for you in the cup, but it looks to me like your breast tissue is too firm to quad for a slightly too small or shallow cup.
Ultimately, fit assessments come down to how comfortable you are in the bra. I think you could probably get away with it, but I think a size up would be worth trying if you want to, especially because it looks like you have tall roots and could handle any added height the next size up might add on. The same goes for the band.
As for the measurement stuff--yeah, I'd say that's normal. By nature, bras squish your boobs into your chest a bit. How much they do so depends on a lot of factors like projection, tissue density, etc.

I would consider this to fit, yes!
Looks good on you!
Part of a 'fit' comes down to personal preference though.
Personally, I'm used to (and prefer) bras 'squishing' me - at least somewhat.
If that's different for you, a 55HH might be worth a try!
When ordering directly from Comexim you could also ask them to lower the cups very slightly (1 cm or so), thus effectively creating a 'half size' (:
Or, another option, ask them for added depth in a 55H!

I wonder if you should try 60H in a padded plunge (different style). From now on, I'm suggesting that people sister-size up in the band for first trying out Comexim. I sister size up to 32 band, and then I wear a 30 band in Ewa Michalak. It is a pretty bra.
I'm just guessing, but I think Comexim's plunge style might suite your shape better. 60H is one band up, and one cup up. https://www.bratabase.com/browse/comexim/basic-plunge-bra-170/60H/ They make both a padded plunge, like the one I just mentioned, and also some of their "balcony bras" are in the plunge style as well. Like this one, Comexim's Karen and Comexim Bianca.
You could always hold on to the 3HC bras temporarily, then when you find a better fit you could list them. Hope that helps!
Edit: or maybe 60H would be too big in Comexim Padded Plunge, since [from what I've heard] their 3HC's are "more shallow" and you should try out 60G in Comexim PP. Here is a good review comparing the 2, although the writer states that 60G fits like 28E and 60H fits like 28F https://www.bratabase.com/bra/dl5ch/
so maybe 60G would be a starting place in their padded plunge, that would be a sister size of 26F. Only speculating here.
Edit: according to theIrishBraLady on Instagram, 26E/F is the same size as Audrey Hepburn - one of my style icons!! She did a recent post "Celebrity Bra Sizes Debunked" p. 6 https://www.instagram.com/p/CQHCPcRHKeJ/
