Adhesive silicone bras can help in some cases.  Theater people also recommend duct taping everything up and in place.

@dorizel:  Do you have an internal corset? I am chesty and will not be wearing staps or a bra. I’m having a bra and internal corset built in – this will keep the dress sitting on my hips correctly and will pump my gals up.

I think backless dresses are just not meant for girls with a large chest. I would ask a seamstress what she recommends at this point

I used a nubra along with the sewn in cups because they just weren’t giving me enough lift either.  The nubra worked pretty well though.

I had a low sweetheart neckline and a relatively low back, so I couldn’t use a corset with my dress without it poking out.

I have the same issue: I can’t use sewn in cups with my dress either, and I’m a 32DD.  I think there are 3 options: (1) the sticky bras, (2) convertible bras with a low back strap, and (3) low back longline bras.  Option (1) may not work if you are large-chested, and (2) and (3) may not work if the back of the dress is too low.  I’m learning the hard way that this is not an easy issue to solve!
