Bra fitting help » Otherwise-perfect bra has WAY too wide wires

Cleo » Marcie Balconnet Bra (6831) » 28E 28:6

So first off: obviously the wires are too wide. That's the most obvious problem! My issue is...honestly, the rest of the bra fits really, really well (or at least, my left breast--my right breast is small and impossible). The breast separation feels right, the gore tacks, the gore height doesn't bother me, AND my breasts fill the bottom of the cup (an issue I've had with my current bra, the Cleo Maddie, which is too shallow for me). PLUS, this bra gives me the best lift of any bra I've tried on.

All this to say: what does this say about my breast shape? Where should I go from here? I've learned through trial and error that I'm pretty solidly in 28E territory, that I have more-shallow-than-projected breasts, and that my breast tissue is ALL in front (none on my sides, once I've scooped it all forward).

For other points of reference, I've also uploaded photos of me in the Cleo Hettie (28E) and Freya Fancies Plunge (28E).
