You could probably have you tailor add some boning to your dress to give it structure, but it may alter the look of the bodice.  Does your dress have a lot of seams in the bodice area?  That’s traditionally where the boning goes in a dress.  It will probably cost you some extra money as well.  You could also try the double sided tape to stick the dress to your skin to keep your dress up, but if your dress is too heavy, if that’s all that’s keeping the dress up, then that won’t be a very good idea.  How heavy is the dress?  What kind of material is it made from?  What does it look like?  Those are all things you will have to consider to add the boning.

that looks like it does have a lot of seams – in the inside – take it to a seamstress and they can find places to put boning – otherwise they can also sew a longline bra into the dress as well.

If the dress doesn’t have boning, you might be able to wear a corset underneath it with boning and then have the dress fitted around the corset so that it stays up all night.

Boning itself doesn’t cost very much, but to add it to an already made dress, I’m not sure what that would cost. It would depend on what the structure of the dress was on the inside.  I would take it to a seamstress and ask for his/her opinion about the boning.
