Bra fitting help » Better bra for my shape/size?
Elomi » Matilda Plunge Bra (8900) » 34G 34:9
Although I generally like this bra, it has wrinkling on the top and sides of the cups. I also noticed that after adjusting the wire to sit in the fold and then scooping, after a while the wire gradually works its way down so it's sitting below the fold, and it becomes more uncomfortable. Since I have had the bra for a few months, I thought the band may be stretching out, and I put it on the next tightest hook. However, it doesn't seem to have helped the fit issues. I also tried on a 34GG of the same bra, but that one felt like the wires were too long, and I still had wrinkling issues. Can you recommend some bras which might work better for my shape and size? Thank you for your time!

Matilda typically runs large in the cup and band, which you could go down a band size, but unfortunately not a cup size since it sizes out at 32GG (sister size to this one) being the lowest they sell.
I believe wrinkling on the sides indicated the need for narrower wires, so I would suggest trying that. If you aren’t ready to go Polish, maybe check out something from Panache or Curvy Kate. I found that Panache Jasmine had narrower wires than Matilda. If you know that you’re a 34G in other brands, start with a 34G on the Jasmine.
If you’re interested in trying something Polish, I’m pretty fond of Ewa Michalak just because it seems to be an easier brand to find (for me). Levana Bratique sells EM bras, but you could also buy direct from Ewa Michalak’s website. I’d try a BM cut in 75G.

I think this bra is just way too wide for you shape and also because you have that extra loose fabric on the sides you want to account for that cup volume, so I would go down 1-2 cup sizes at least. I recommend the Playful Promises Walpole bra in 32H and 32I (US) to try (the bra runs loose in the band).
