I think you’d have to try it on and move around to see how it would feel. I’m petite on top, and I haven’t had the best luck with the strapless/backless bras, because they don’t keep sticking once I start sweating (it could just be me). You’d have to see whether it’s sticky, or if the front is reinforced, and if that would be comofrtable for you.

piper628 :  I work a long-line bra with extra support in the cups added (’cause I’m more than DD) and gravity was not working with me. My dress-top was a bustier style and the seamstress also added extra support inside the bustier (it was invisible on the outside).She said the key was to be a bra that was a long-line and that was tight on my waist. She had to nip the waist in for me. Get as high a back as possible for your dress.

I would be super uncomfortable wearing a one-piece bra, but that is just me. Check out Barenecessities.com. They have awesome big bust options. Buy several you like, then jump around and bend over in them to see which one work.

piper628 :  I very much doubt that particular ‘bra’ would work.  Look how that model is posturing to make it look as though hers are perky.  If she stood like a normal person, they’d be droopy as heck and she’s maybe half your chest size.  For my wedding, my sister decided to order a custom corset and seemed pretty satisfied – it might be something worth looking into.

Have you tried the sticky bras, or taping the girls in place?

I bought a “low back” extender piece to use with an existing strapless bra. It hooks on to the regular bra hooks, then actually wraps low, around your stomach, then to the other side of the hooks. I got mine cheap at target – worth a shot, and if it doesn’t work, you’re only out $10 at most.

I really struggled with this problem as well and ended up buying a corset from David’s Bridal.  The challenge (as most of us big busted women know) is that most stores don’t carry my size so I ended up buying three different options online and trying them on at home. None of them fit perfectly. I ended up sticking with the David’s Bridal corset and altering the cups myself (they were so pointy!!).  The style I bought was the Dominique Torsolette for $80. Seriously – it has cone boobs so be prepared to adjust if you go this route.

piper628 :  it all depends on how you wear it.  If you space the cups far apart and attach it gives you a ton of cleavage.  If you place them  close together and attach it gives you no cleavage.  

 

Sometimes I dont even attach the cups and I’ll wear them sideways (with the clasp facing the floor) for plunging necklines .  I attach part of the cup to the bottom of my boob then pull my boob up and stick the rest of the sticky bra cup as high as I can,  it gives me a little bit of artificial lift for clothes that I would otherwise not be able to wear a traditional bra with.

That bra you  posted looks like a boob masher  to me , also looks like an unguarded movement might pull  the whole thing down!
