I will start by saying that this is the 2nd time I've reviewed this bra - I didn't like it the first time I tried it, but my bra size has changed since then, so I decided to try it again because it's so highly recommended.
I must say, I am shocked that this bra is so popular - I think it's completely horrible. It is so wide in the center that it comes up above where my breast tissue begins and completely covers my sternum. It comes up to about 1.5" below my collar bone. (I am 5'4") This bra also comes up too high on the sides for me, and flattens my chest and pushes my boobs apart.
I am 30E in 'regular (non-strapless)' Fantasie bras & 28F in Freya. In this bra, the 30E was too small in the cups, 30F 'fit' me, but I returned it because of the issues above.
Overall, this bra was completely uncomfortable, unwearable, and unflattering. Yes, the model looks fabulous in it, but girls it will not give you that great cleavage, I'm sorry to disappoint.
I recommend Panache3370 - Porcelain Strapless - which is a much prettier, comfortable, and better fitting bra than this.
It sounds as if you have a short "upper torso". (Very little room from underneath the bust to the shoulder). #4530 DOES have a relatively broad center gore in order to support those robust G cups with "confidence". It might very well be that this bra is just too tall for your figure type. At the moment we don't have an alternative strapless frame available for this cup size. But stay tuned for the debut of our new Freya strapless in January 2011. This bra has a plunging neckline, and maximizes cleavage - VERY sexy! It should be perfect for your needs!
