Bra fitting help » Too large or shape issues?
Ewa Michalak » Bm Emerald (1839) » 95GG 42:10
There is a good bit of wrinkling at the bottom of the cups, but it doesn't feel uncomfortable or loose. The gore tacks well, and the cups neither gap nor cut into my tisse. The shape it gives is more pointy than rounded and doesn't seem to provide much lift. Are these signs that it is too large and I should try a cup size down, or just that the BM is not a good shape match?

From my experiences and studies in the EM cuts, you'd have to go up a size to get the depth you need from this bra. Even when past encounters lead you to conclude that you have a certain combination of fit needs (fuller bottom cup than most styles provide, studier build for soft tissue support, push up or 'lifting' features- those factors could actually be adding to the issues by fighting your unique shape: center full, quite projected, shorter breast & root!).
*Would suggest considering volume as a factor- it may be a touchy topic but vital to revisit from time to time, measuring, testing depth, etc etc as changes can be subtle yet have aggravating results ('it fit last week! why not now?').
*As we age, skin continues to grow, adding to judgments about 'looseness' & wanting a more contained, solid, cohesive presentation: without the best possible fit, some ease is wanted to work with the higher degree of movement and size flux you deal with daily.
*Hoisting heavier tissue prone to 'wandering' may initially lead to poor matches in an otherwise good pattern for your shape-perhaps a more flexible fabric at a crucial area could counter this middle-of-the-road 'almost there' end of your journey.
Critically thinking about where this style is tight, binds, appears unsupportive, slips, tends to shift or fidget (often wires at gores do this), those places are the 'symptom' for the true issue of fit directly across corresponding area of the cup.
Perhaps instead of thinking of your girls as 'deflated', assessing them as more flexible near chest wall and fuller further out? Just less supported from muscle & skin, not adhering to a readily determinable shape, so that fullness wants to go wherever it can?
The inner wrinkles under the cup show they aren't projected enough overall and you're getting something like an omega-root fit in this BM. That lack of space causes tension all over as your breasts seek room- then the upper, outer and lower edges 'curl up and die' from the deepest part of cup giving way (being pushed away from chest wall). This makes the maxed-out cups appear a bit blocky, pointy & wrong as the shape is over-filled and the seam angles are emphasized.
*GG sizing at a smaller band would probably behave differently purely due to actual weight... possibly in this BM they are the same pattern as G cup and below?
*Remember the nature of a cat: 'If it fits, it sits': When they don't, things get feisty & knocked over.
*BM Emerald could use a well placed depth boost at your size range (if not in curve variation, then forgiving fabric toward the center where the shape cones up)
Comparing their patterns, the S, SF and SM all are all a bit different but also come out more forgiving in the center cup where it counts, giving precious room to very projected breasts.
These all can present shallow depending on how Wide/Narrow, or dense/full-at-wire ones' roots are!
I'm a completely different shape & size, but have vacillated between the bottom-full BM for smaller half (week?) of the month, & deeper overall (more open inner & upper) SF for well, the rest of all the times.
What will not fit, is dispersed but doesn't overflow. Somehow Ewa's designs make lift somewhat comfortable and presentable.
