I’m a 38G/H and won’t be wearing a bra but I also have straps on my dress. maybe your seamstress can add an internal corset type thing. Mine has a really wide elastic band with hook and eye closure and really holds me in. I’ve also read that while corset backed dresses can give you a great looking shape, they really aren’t meant for full on support. 

Maybe check sites like barenecessities.com Lane Bryant or Her Room for strapless Bras and bring a few to your alterarions appointment to try on with the dress. If one works, return the others.

Have you been sized recently? You shouln’t need to be pulling up your bra all the time, I’m a 32G and rarely have to adjust mine. My dress has great built in support so I’m not going to be wearing a bra at all.

My dress was a strapless corset back and didn’t have any built in bust support, so my seamstress sewed in bust cups for me. Once my dress was laced up, my boobs were perfectly covered and pushed up just enough to give me a good shape. I didn’t have to adjust my dress at all on my wedding day.

I’m sure your seamstress could do the same! Mine carried all sorts of cups (gel vs no gel, demi vs full coverage, all sizes) and let me try different ones so I could pick what I liked before sewing them in.

I will be wearing a bra because I have large ta-tas and it is a nessity for me! I would think with a 32DD you could get away with not wearing a bra, especially since you have a corset dress.<br />If you  do decide to get a bra, get one with a wide band and underwire and use boob glue (yes, this is a thing) to keep it in place. IMO no good bra is comfortable so I can’t help you on that front- but hopefully you’ll be too happy to notice!
