I know this sounds nuts but nursing/surgical tape, and because you have bid boobies, lots of it! When I had a high school prom, oh 15 years ago, my dress had an open back that laced (oh the 90’s). My mother showed me how running tape underneath the breasts gave enough support to mimic a cleavage without the cumbersome feeling of a slipping bra. And it stayed on and in place even after dancing all night.

No suggestions but my goodness, that dress is gorgeous on you! Maybe take the photo to a good lingerie shop or Nordstrom and see what they recommend.

My dress was sheer in the back, all the way to the sides, so I couldn’t wear a strapless bra without it showing, but the dress was a fitted sheath style so I wanted to make sure everything was “contained”. I ended up wearing the stick on bra (NuBra), and an AWESOME slip by commando. The slip I got had shorts underneath it, so it was VERY comfortable, but the skirt over it made it also very ladylike. Loved it!

Miss_Mae:  You’re welcome! It is a softer, romantic shape and I think we’re used to seeing so many mermaid dresses that it is a bit different when they aren’t formfitting. My dress is a similar shape and it’s taken me some time to get used to as I’ve never really worn a long dress / that much fabric
