my dress was very similar to that and i was able to find a longline bra that went low enough in the back and didn’t show.

That’s a beautiful dress.  A lot of the dresses will have built in bra-cups plus you can do stick-ons for extra support.  Alternately you can have a seamstress add built in cups. But I’m not sure if that will be enough for H-cups?  I’ve seen a few long-line bras that might suit too.

I’m sorry, but I wouldn’t attempt that low of a back with my size (30H). I’ve never seen a low-back longline bra in my size, but you might have more options as a 38.  

You could get lace added to the back to make it higher, but that will change the look.

writtergirl719:  I have DDs so support and coverage was my number one priority in a dress. My consultant told me that sewn-in cups do nothing to support busts over a size C–it just prevents a pointy boob/nipple situation. 

In my non-seamstress non-expert opinion, I think the back of that dress is too low to add a built-in corset. Also, I think that even if you find a long-line bra that doesn’t show in the back, the neckline is too deep that you would see the bra from the front. 

I encourage you to try it on–you might find that you hate it in person (I found that dresses I loved online looked totally different on me, and ended up with a dress that wasn’t even on my radar). If you still love it after you try it on, ask the consultant/in house seamstress what you can do to make it work for your body.
