It seems that the problem is not so much the wrong style, as it is the wrong cup size. The cup is too small to really ‘encapsulate’ the breast tissue.
Two questions I’d ask: Does the center piece (between the cups) “tack” against the chest wall? And is the under-wire behind the breast tissue, on bone?
The bra must surround the breast tissue in order to be able to lift and support! The ‘side-boob’ is breast tissue that’s not fully contained in the cup.
I would bet you need more cup. You could try Ava (Fantasie 2132)
– which does run a bit snugger in the band than 4510 –and go up one or two cup sizes (perhaps try a 30FF). 2132 is also lower in the center front which could also help with the “gapping”.
Molded cups are not for everyone, and there is truly no other bra on the market that fits like the 4520! It’s a very subtle and natural shape…You are correct, sometimes we do go down in the cup in 4510.

I feel your pain: It’s so difficult to find a molded smooth cup in this size! But the good news is Fantasie 4510 has a generous cup, so much so that very often we’ll recommend going down in the cup. If the 34H was too big in cup and band, there’s a very good chance you could wear the 32H. It might just be perfect after all.
