Is there a bra that does not make me look like I am smuggling grapefruit halves?

Since everyone is asking about bras, it got me thinking: I am looking for an underwire bra that does not have a super round profile. All the bras I have looked at lately have a "round modern shape" (exact wordage from one of the tags). To me, these bras seem be trying to mimic the look of implants: big round mounds. I have found retro bras, vintage bras, and fetish bras that do not have the ridiculous round look. I have found bullet bras and super pointy bras, which while amusing, would be kind of silly in real life.
I have gone to Macy's, Figleaves, Barenecessities, and a bunch of other stores and websites. It is really overwhelming. There is no specialty bra store anywhere near where I live (I live on an island in the middle of the Pacific), so that is out.
But is there a mainstream brand has for a more natural silhouette? I wear a 34 C. I do not need built up straps or anything super heavy duty. Just a nice underwire bra that supports and conceals nipples. I prefer a molded cup (which may be the problem), but could go with a regular cup.
