under the dress help!

hello ladies, 
i need some advice/recommendations. My dress has a very low back so I need to find a backless and strapless bra. I am having a hard time finding something that will give me the needed support that will work with my dress. I am a D cup and, unfortunately, gravity has not been kind to me. despite my size, I have a hard time getting decent cleavage, even in push-up bras. I found a strapless, backless bra but it is really not all that great. it doesn't stick well and of course doesn't support well at all. I have also tried the straps that pull the back lower for regular bras but it is not low enough and will show. I have a little bit of room on the dress that I could easy fill out with the proper undergarments. I am trying to avoid getting it taken in if possible because I will lose some of the beading on the dress.

The seamstress suggested I get something to stick to the sides of my breasts as well to help push me up where I need to be to make the bust of the dress look as good as possible. I am having trouble finding something that will work for this. Maybe this could work if she puts a bra in the lining of the dress and i wear the pushup i already have as well? 

I don't know...i'm frustrated and thinking aloud. Any suggestions, recommendations will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

  • I would suggest you find a REAL bra store; they do exist, but they can be hard to find.  Speak to the experts there; they ought to be able to help you if they know their business.  Good luck!
  • My dress is corset style and I don't need a bra, however, I did want the UMPH!!!  I found these cups at Target that are sticky on the outside.  I haven't tried it with my dress yet, I'm going to take them with me to my first fitting, and see what they look like.  They were like $17 and if they work I'm going to be sooo excited!!  If not, I'm going to ask the seamstress about adding push up cups to the dress.

    Good luck!!!
