Bra fitting help » Top of the cups gapes when leaning forward

Look for another bra
I think this push-up bra might be a little big. I kept the removable cookies in for the pics.
When I lean forward, the top of the cups gape (both right and left). But the top doesn't gape when I'm standing straight.
Plus, in the front view pic (the first photo), it looks like my right breast is off-center? What's up with that?
I think I have shallow breasts with wide, tall root. Is the bra shallow enough?
My ABTF size is 30D UK, similar to the bratabase calculator's results. This bra is size 30D UK. But should I try 30C?

Hm, I'm fixated on the band - is it tight enough?
Okay, to answer your question (or at least try to answer it) the "problem" with a padded bra - most people have asymmetry. E.g, a padded bra that fits me off the rack is going to be slight too big for my smaller boob and slightly too small for my bigger - but I just meet in the middle and say "it fits" because that's the best I can do for a firm cup. and as long as it's comfortable (to have a perfect fit, I could buy a soft bra with stretch lace, that way both sides will "fit"
You know, I've never tried an Aubude bra, so I'm unfamiliar with this brand, though it is French and they have some LOVELY designs.
I wouldn't worry about *moving around* so much. Any time you have a stiff cup like this (like a padded cup), it's not going to be perfect in every movement. Bending down to pick stuff up, etc. It's just not possible as your body changes position. But I would try to make sure it fits good when your body is upright (so like, standing and sitting) At the same time, I would make sure that the bra is not so big that your boobs fall out when you bend over - that's too big then. It should still adhere to your body. But I wouldn't worry about gaps as much when you bend over, as long as it's still decent.

Hmm, from the angle shot, it seems too gappy on your *left side* which makes me think it's either too big, or a shape mis-match.
I definitely think it’s a shape mismatch. This bra looks visually very deep and narrow on your shallower shape. I see that the Natori you asked for fit help on had a 4.9 inch cup width that looked about right to maybe even a tad narrow on you—this one’s got roughly 1/4 inch less width! Meanwhile, while you measured the Natori as having 0.4 inches less depth, the Natori isn’t as padded—padded bras can eat up a lot of cup depth measurement-wise and still function similar to an unpadded bra that is, on paper, “deeper.” Natori’s definitely known for making shallower bras—you might also try Curvy Kate, Freya, and maybe Bravissimo in your size range?
