How about something similar to this?

You can also get bras that have a super plunged back but I feel like unless you’re completely slim, they don’t fit properly.

Can cups be sewn in?

liaeona:  Is there boning in your dress? If so, that will probably be enough support for sewn in bra cups. I had a strapless dress and between the boning and the sewn in bra cups, I had absolutely no support issues, didn’t have to hike my dress up once all day. And I’m a D cup, so I normally am on the higher end of support. Ask whoever is doing your alterations to sew them in for you!

Google “backless bra”

 I bought two for my wedding dress, they were both padded and had an underwire. They just have this clear sticky part that keeps it on. I think the one I  ore was from Maidenform, but I don’t see it online. It was similar to this one http://m.asos.com/mt/www.asos.com/Fashion-Forms/Fashion-Forms-U-Plunge-Backless-And-Strapless-Bra/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=1962624&istCompanyId=6f061ed0-7427-4b6c-bb90-987c0bd08468&istItemId=lraalapmm&istBid=tztx&affid=14312&channelref=google_shopping&mk=abc&r=2&mk=abc&currencyid=3&gclid=CjwKEAiA3Ou1BRDso5XyhduuwFASJABP3PEDl330JV3cugsOelc52eDF9fNNWTaogZVOT9VTrDZTjhoCkk_w_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds&un_jtt_application_platform=newPlp&un_jtt_redirect

the halter steap was removable on mine. I think VS also sells something similar

If you go with a backless sticky bra, don’t cheap out! You get what you pay for. The good ones are great, the cheap ones fall right off.

The consultant that sold me my dress says she definitely recommends not wearing a bra and having pads sewn into the dress.  She put a couple in for me and it was really comfy.  I have D cups too so support is an issue!

I’m facing the same issue. Like you, I have a dress with an illusion back. I just purchased this backless push up bra with inflatable cups from Amazon. The reviews are great. I’m going to ask my seamstress to sew these cups into my dress, but you may be able to get away with just using the sticky adhesives since your dress has a lot more coverage in the back than mine.



This is my dress

I had this same issue. My first seamstress said bra cups in the dress couldn’t be done, so I took the dress to a real lingerie store. They had multiple options for low back bras and shapewear that would work. While I ended up not going with the bra (second seamstress said cups would work best), I highly recommend taking the dress with you when you buy the bra. If you are open to it, though, I’d suggest having the bra cups sewn in. That worked really well for me. It was comfortable and one less thing to worry about.

liaeona:  I had the same problem with my dress. Ask your seamstress to purchase the matching lace for the dress. She can sew some in at the bottom to cover up any part of your bra that peeks through the back. My seamstress did this with my dress and it turned out great! You can’t even tell she did anything to the lacey back, plus more lace is always a good thing!

ETA: Get a bra ASAP so that you have it by the time the seamstress startes alterations
