Jo-Ann fabric has these “Adhesive bras” basically they are adhesive cups for the girls, might want to check that out.

Many places have bras they sew into the dress, you should ask them about it if there is time.  My bridal shop does this and when I wore a strapless while dress shopping and I wasn’t finding dresses I liked.  She then told me to take off my bra and try the dress on again.  I loved it after that because I didn’t have those arm flap things (and I’m a fairly thin person).  She said the strapless bra is what gives that appearance in the dresses for some reason.

I know you didn’t mention anything about arm flaps but I would think that most bridal shops insert cups for you to act as your bra for the dress.

I purchased my strapless from Figleaves.  Since you are close to Los Angeles you can check out:

Miss Stevens Lingerie

Several of my gf and a sister are Dear Daughter and higher, so when they need to find daily and special occasion bras, this is where we go.

Good Luck!!!!!

My one gf is a model and a DDD.  She swears by duct tape. I know it isn’t romantic but they do sell it in white in case you don’t find a solution before your big day. I throw that out there figuring something is better than nothing. 🙂

I know they make double sided wardrobe tape that you might be able to attach to the lining of your dress and exterior of your bra to bridge the gap. You could also have someone who is capable just add a few loops of thread to combine just the necessary openings of bra and dress. Hope this helps! Your dress, as I’ve seen it posted elsewhere, is absolutely gorgeous…by the way. 🙂

Have you thought about sewn in cups AND a bra to fill in that gap of the dress, since you don’t have time to take it in? I know being a D cup that ADDING in the bust area sounds like the last thing you want to do, but it may solve the gap problem at least!
