I’m not sure if this is something you’ve tried already, but there are full bodysuit bustier bodyshapers (I’m not sure what they’re officially called, but the ones that go from bra to crotch like a onsie kind of) But anyways, I’ve had one that’s very low in the back, lower than the slit (appears) to go in the dress, but then again the picture could be deceiving

I have the exact same problem for my wedding. I think I am going to use fashion tape and just tape the bra on really well.  Fashion tape works well and I can’t figure out any other solution. I am going to do a practice run soon.

What about those bras with the clear back strap? I don’t think it will be so visable since the opening is flowy and almost closes (although I don’t know how the dress looks on you.) I bought the stick on bras once (rather my mom ordered them for me) and sent them right back. I’m a C-cup and just felt they provided no additional support. In fact, I felt they made my boobs look saggy because they stick underneath but don’T really offer a push-up quality. Good luck.

I feel your pain. I’m normally a D or DD (when I’m not pregnant, which is a whole other story) and sticky bras are 100% USELESS for any woman that actually requires support. My only suggestion is to try one of those specialty bra shops, which might have some miracle-type bra-thing that is exactly what you need. Sadly, it will probably cost more than the dress itself. Can I just curse all open-backed dresses on your behalf?

Is it possible to wear a tank-top that is the same beige color underneath, so that your skin isn’t exposed?  If you could wear some sort of tank, you could wear a bra under that…

I think that you should go with the spanx body suit onesie thing previously mentioned. do NOT use a stick on bra if you think that you will be sweating even a little bit. i don’t even have large boobs and I have tried several kinds (including the expensive ones) and they all fall off when I start to sweat and I end up having to run to the bathroom and stuff them in my purse and go braless. Plus the spanx will not fall off and will give you a great shape in the dress. Like prevously mentioned, they offer some low back options that should work with the dress.

Maybe you can close the key hole in the back lower part a bit to accommodate  a low back bra. Something like this http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/main/ProductDetail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524446136157&afsrc=1&site_refer=GGLBASE001&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=ParentItem0406962823737′ defer=’defer

The nude spanx onsie suggetions are also good. I wouldn’t go with a stick bra it just sounds really uncomfortable.

I have this same problem with my wedding dress–low in the front and the back. I have been looking for a oncie to no avail.

Wow, that dress is not bra friendly! Try to find a longline bra that is super super low in back.

Another idea is to ask the bride if you could wear a nude camisole under the dress. Have her see you try on the dress without a bra so that she sees the need for it!

mrsch2b- I wanted to try mine again, but I had tried it a few times and it had lost it’s stickiness. I followed the washing instructions very carefully, and it isn’t sticky at all anymore!

I am more and more convinced they don’t work! I bought the Sassybax, but i may try the Nubra. Other than that I guess I will keep looking for the lowest bustier or convertible I can fine. When my dress comes in I am going to see what my seamstress recommends.

I think you could get away with the clear back straps, but my dress is a little different:

I bought mine on ebay, and the brand was flexees. if you can find one that’s not quite low enough, you may be able to cut it in the back and lower it even more depending on how it’s made. look for something that has boning in the front, so it can stay up independant of the back.

I don’t know how much sewing expertise you have, but along those same lines you may want to just make your own undergarment solution from scratch/altering patterns, but it’s not something I’d try unless you’ve done it before.
