Have you considered having cups sewn into the dress?

My girls are C’s and I didn’t want to have to worry about a bra showing under the dress so I asked the seamstress to sew cups in.  They were suprisingly supportive and very comfortable.  If your bodice is tight enough I think the sewn in cups might be what you need.

I second the cups… there are a few variations your seamstress should have (pushup, no pushup, extra support, etc) that can be sewn directly into the dress. They help the dress fit perfectly, and because it is snug, you won’t feel unsupported.

I know you mentioned the bustier with foam over the boning but have you tried it with your dress? That’s what I went with instead of having cups swen in. The nice thing about a bustier is that it will take the weight of your double Ds off your dress. Otherwise, you’re counting on the little spagetti straps and the fit of the bodice to keep you in place. For comfort and appearance, you don’t want the straps cutting into your shoulders or back skin/chest bulding from the dress because it’s puled tight for support. I felt so much better knowing the bustier was doing all the work to keep me in and lifted rather than relying on the dress to do that.

I am having a similar problem with my dress.  It plunges in both the front and back, but not to my butt crack or anything like that.  Anyway, I tried having the cups put in and they didn’t work.  I’ve tried several bras and they all show when I try them with the dress.  I have a similar cup size too, so I can’t go without.  In short, I don’t have a lot of advice for you, but I wanted to let you know that you’re not the only one with this problem!
