You might try the Elomi nursing bra style Elomi 3912. It has a wire and gives great support and fits super well. Very popular style for nursing bra.

We designed this bra using non-stretch fabrication to prevent all bounce, as it can be so painful when breasts are ultra-tender. It could be you purchased the wrong size.
Unfortunately, even the best bra in the world can be horribly uncomfortable, and won’t be able to do the job (lift and support the breasts) if it’s an incorrect size.

So, I just ended up ordering a cheaper nursing bra, which contained cotton, turned out to be a better fit, better support and, actually, looked far more sensually than this one.
I really don't think the quality and the less-than-intricate design of this given bra are worth the money.
It’s difficult to comment without seeing the bra on you. Very often we get a ‘torpedo’-look when the cups are too small and they force the breast tissue (in a too small space) forward. We chose a simplex fabric for the cups because it provides comfortable, yet firm support. (Bouncing is so painful when you’re nursing!)

So sorry this bra didn’t work for you, I do understand preferring an under-wire if the breasts are very heavy. Most of our “Freya-Girl” nursing Mums like a soft cup, so Freya doesn’t make an under-wire nursing bra.
As far as our swimsuits are concerned, our fit is very “specific” –particularly in an under-wire top –as the wires have to be in exactly the right place for comfort and ultimate support. If you are used to wearing American brand products which are more perhaps “forgiving” and tend to be cut more generously, you might find yourself wearing a larger cup size in a British brand. We always tell women not to be afraid of going up in the cup, as generally they’ll be wearing their cups too small to begin with.

Freya Response: Every brand has its own distinctive fit. You didn’t mention if the bra was too big, or too small for: Simply stated, if you aren't in the correct size, yes, it would be uncomfortable.
Sharla from Fort Lauderdale Florida USA
You don't mention if you are nursing, as 2034 is a nursing bra and therefore offers more coverage…If you ordinarily wears a 36G in US sizing, then you would wear a 36F in our UK sizing, which would explain the fullness of the bra.
If you are accustomed to wearing an under-wire, a soft cup bra can feel very “loosey-goosey”. Also, when we have an under-wire helping with support we don’t have to rely on full coverage for support, we can make the bra more plungy, and very sexy!

The elastic will soften as the bra is washed, and using fabric softener helps a lot too.
Hermione from Seattle, WA, USA
Freya Response: If the back rides up, the band is too big. It’s so important to have a firm band for the extra support you need while nursing! If the cup fits in a 38G, try a 36GG.
Heather from Ypsilanti,MI USA
HerRoom Response: You have a rather unique and uncommon size. WE did our best to get your size to you as soon as the manufacaturer had it in stock.
Try a smaller cup (30D). We use quite a firm fabric so the breasts can be nicely supported throughout the nursing process, when the breasts are heavier and very often painful. The fabric does of course soften as the bra is washed.
