Bra Woes- Do Stick on Bras Work?

This is my dress:


I'm trying to find a strapless push up bra to wear with it, but I'm having a hard time finding something that will work with that low back. I'm starting to think about trying to use one of those stick on bras- Does anyone have any experience with them? Are they actually supportive?

Any other suggestions gladly accepted- I'm just trying to stay away from longline bras.

TIA!

    Sew cups in your gown - works like a charm.

    EDIT: That dress is gorgeous!

    I've worn the plastic/rubber "chicken cutlet" type bras that are slightly adhesive, but remove easily and painlessly.  I think I got it at Target?   The old-school stick on bras hurt like hell to remove, and I don't think I'd want to put my boobs in so much pain on my wedding night....

    I have a very similar dress to yours (pic in bio), and I'm just having my seamstress sew cups into the bodice.

    If you're busty (bigger than a B-cup) those stick on bras are a joke.

    </div><div>I was trying to avoid sewing in cups, because I have a friend doing my bustle and I didn't want to add to her work- But if sewing in cups is the best option, then I'll look into it.</div><div>

    Also - Victoria's Secret has a convertible low-back strapless bra that may be worth looking into:

    Get cups sewn in :) I have noticed with stick on bras that if you get hot or sweaty that they slide around. And I think if you are dancing at your reception you have a good chance of getting hot and sweaty.

    I love my sticky bra, and it has never slid around on me. It's not as supportive as a real bra, but it's never given me trouble. Note: I am pretty small (32c) so that might be why my experience differed from others.

    <div>A friend of mine was in a wedding in which all the bridesmaids went with sticky bras because of their dresses.  3 of the 5 ended up having their bras pop off their boobs during the ceremony and had to hold it on with their arms for the rest of the ceromony.  I am having cups sewn in my low back gown.</div>
