My seamstress would up altering my bra so that it wouldn’t show under my dress but it sounds like that won’t be possible with your dress, with the very low back.)

I’m bustier than you (G cup) but in my experience, simply sewing in cups without any additional support or structure isn’t adequate for someone who is bustier.  In my opinion, there’s a reason their alterations department only stocks cups up to a certain size.

 I’d go for the low backed bodysuit or something like it, if you think it wouldn’t show under the dress.

I’m having same issue Bee – also 34dd/e

Try the Spanx Suit You Fancy plunge/low back body shaper.

Can’t post a link for some reason.. But has great low back. I might add double sided dress tape to inside the cups to keep them nice and secure!

I’m a 34DoubleD, so I get this. For my dress, it was originally strapless, so I had hem add straps, so I could wear a bra (ended going strapless bra anyway). 

The bodysuit looks good for support and low back. My only concern would be when you have to use the restroom at your wedding. It’s hard enough to sort out a wedding dress in the restroom, but way harder if you’re also going to have to pull down a bodysuit. 

There are bras with convertible straps/backs to make low back straps. I have one that works well. There’s more support too, because it wraps around the front to make the low back.

My seamstress told me to buy a strapless bra and she had me wear t when she pinned the dress.

I may end up with a similar situation based on a dress that I am 99% about. Following for more advice!
