Have you tried taking pamprin? My friend got married last summer and she swears on taking pamprin 2 days before the wedding. It sheds water weight (its just PMS medicine SO its not like its some weight loss pill with bad side affects) so it reduces bloating.. She said she put her dress on 2 days before the wedding and it wouldnt zip so she took pamprin and it was perfect the day of her wedding… Im taking it for my wedding next week!

Have you tried using the stick on bras cups? I have had this problems and usually by using those this or using a different bra fixed the problem, I am not so busty so I am not sure if this would work well for you, but it is a thought.

Get your boobs out of the dress, zip the dress up and then shove the ladies back in with your strapless on.  Then, to make sure they look pretty, lean forward, shake yourself a little bit and adjust the dress.  You won’t feel super-elegant doing these little moves, but as a 36H this has been the technique I have used a few times to get me into pretty dresses.

Edit:  You say when you try it on with the strapless bra it doesn’t close.  WHat about adding the straps to the bra until you get the dress on, and then releasing those ladies once you’re all zipped in?
