truthah:  THIS! My 38Fs just aren’t going anywhere without proper support, and I even picked a wedding dress that would allow me to wear a proper underwear corset so I could get that support.

I haven’t read all responses, but I think a plunge bra with a low back converter could potentially work.  Freya Deco or something really low like that + the converter.

I’m only a 36-C and I wouldn’t be able to wear that dress comfortably. It’s just impractical for some body types. Although it is really pretty. Good luck!

I wear a 36H and wore a similar style dress for a wedding last fall. I bought this bra extender: http://www.herroom.com/fashion-forms-4105-adjustable-low-back-strap.shtml

I wore it with an adjustable bra and used clear straps, but I couldn’t get the extender to stay low enough not to peek out of the back of the dress. My seamstress had a genius suggestion, though–she used some excess fabric from the dress and built up the back by about an inch, and then added an extra hook and eye closure. It worked great and it was totally not noticeable.

Yikes!  If I were in your situation, I would just wear your plunge bra.  Since you already own the bra, it seems like the best of a lot of bad options.

If you feel uncomfortable about the bra showing in the back, you can put on a shawl or bolero for the reception.

koinonos:  I got your email/PM about the similar situation I had about a year ago.  I had the back of my dress lined where there was lace to make it less see-through.  I then wore a low back bustier.  Unfortunately there was still an opening in the back and the bustier came up too high, so I had to keep fussing with it all night to try to keep it hidden.  (It was sort of like trying to keep curtains closed to keep the daylight out.)  In the end it wasn’t too terrible I guess, but I never felt very confident or comfortable because of the uncertainty that my bra might be showing.  I hope you find something that works for you!

I know this thread is a few weeks old but I had to comment. I’m a 32G and I would be absolutely LIVID if any of my friends didn’t take that into consideration when picking out Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. It’s hard enough to feel comfortable in regular clothes. I’m not sure if you made a decision on what you should do yet, but if it were me I would wear the plunge bra and I wouldn’t care if it shows in the back. If you don’t mind it showing and you’re most physically comfortable that way then just tell her that’s what you’re planning on doing so that she kind of knows ahead of time. 

I agree with PP who said that even wearing an ill fitted bra for a short period of time causes extreme pain. I can’t go 20 minutes without good support. This is something you 100% cannot help, you’re not just being difficult like some BMs are about dresses. It’s most important that you’re not in pain or falling out all over the place all night. 

Good luck I hope everything works out!
