Bra fitting help » Cup depth seems ok, but still wrinkling
Cleo » Meg Balconnet (6751) » 30D 30:4
Thanks to MeeM_13 for suggesting to try the Cleo Meg! So far I think it fits ok, at least much better than anything else I have tried. Will still wear it for a bit longer as I am not used to wired bras, but in the meantime I thought I would ask for any visible signs of bad fit. In particular, I am confused about the diagonal wrinkling at the bottom of the cup in the picture. Is that a fit issue? Or could that be from storage?
Otherwise, the band fits fine (more like a 28 as others pointed out in their reviews, so perfect for me ) and the wires are a good width, though a bit firm for my taste. I'm FOB and can't fill out the top of the cups, but consider that a minor flaw at this point in my journey given the rest of the bra fits somewhat. As a result though, the cups give my breasts a more relaxed shape under clothes instead of the typical super round Cleo shape.

I think it looks pretty good! I love the pattern of that bra
It looks like the wrinkling is just on one side correct? Is that breast smaller or bigger than the other side?
Sometimes I get wrinkling near the gore on my smaller side. But if it doesn’t bother you it could be a minor issue?

Omg, I didn't get a notification that you mentioned me or anything! I just saw this after clicking on the fitting help section. So glad it's mostly working for you! Especially with the band being nice and snug or that's what I would've said before I read the other comments about the fit. Sorry it didn't work out that well for you but hopefully, it's at least getting you closer to the right fit. Hmm the wrinkling is basically from one area being much more projected than the surrounding tissue. So, you feel that it fits well near the nipples but there's wrinkling in the center where you don't have much tissue. It's just a shape issue with the right size, I'd say. Wrinkling from a too small cup/too big cup looks pretty different. Although, the wrinkling from a too shallow cup at the apex can look similar.
I have the same issue with the top having a slight gap because I just don't have much tissue there and the 28DD meg I have just doesn't hold my breasts in the way where they can be allowed to express their tall, even roots (to be fair, no bra yet does that for me). Just from looking at it, it does seem to mostly fit quite well, especially on your bigger breast but how you feel matters more and I'm not sure you feel great in it. I get the pointy shape too but that's just because my breasts are conical so, I'm not sure if the bra gives a conical shape by itself. Under clothes, this bra does look quite natural on me too and I don't see the slight gaping at the top. Also, yep, I had the poking of the underwires at the gore, it would sit on breast tissue but luckily, the underwire channels are longer than the underwires so, you can push the underwires all the way to the side and put some stitches at the gore to prevent it from coming up and sitting on tissue.
It isn't perfect, obviously but do you think it's good enough? I think mine is good enough and with the stitches at the gore to keep the underwires away, I'm happy with it. No bra can be perfect and fit both the breasts perfectly if there is even the slightest asymmetry. Would you still wanna keep the bra or maybe you'd want to sell it or return it and try something else? (Sorry if you've already spoken about it but there are so many comments and so much info).
