My only advice is to get professionally fitted (I did at macys and picked out a bra that fit me well) most seamstresses will be able to sew the bra in to your dress if you don’t want it to shift around while danceing, but that is totally up to your comfort preference

I did this and it worked so well for me. 

I ended up going and getting properly fitted at a specialty boutique, the bra fit me better than any I’ve ever owned and it stayed up all night. Didn’t have to worry about adjusting it one bit!!

I have cups sewn into mine and it latches in the back like a bra, but no chance of it slipping.  Could you have that done?

I had cups sewn into my dress and the bodice taken in to be the exact size so the dress itself was basically a bra.  I always find it way more comfortable to not wear a bra with dresses that have padding so I highly recommend this route.  Bras drive me nuts so it will be nice to not have to wear one on my wedding day!

I wore a longline bar… way more comfortable for all day wear. My altrations woman sent me to a local lingerie store I didn’t even know existed, and I got a great bra at an incredible price. It’s best to get one with boning and without foam (as the foam adds about an inch to your overall diameter). Bridal salons often carry them too. Then during alterations they added velcro to attach the bra to the inside of the dress which helped make sure that the dress didn’t shift or move down at all which let me have the fit be a slight bit looser to help avoid any back fat or armpit fat that often comes when you need the dress tight enough to support the bust.

I had cups sewn into my dress, as other bees have suggested. This worked best for me because my dress was so fitted at the top, I did not have to worry about it falling down or anything.

@mrsSonthebeach:  I’ll be wearing one of those too. It really keep the dress up. No pulling up the top and it gives me great posture!

I had my bodice taken in and cups sewn in, and I still felt like my boobs didn’t “fill in” the dress. So I wore sticky boobs, like these: http://www.target.com/p/fashion-forms-womens-amazing-adhesive-nude/-/A-12730179?ref=tgt_adv_XSE10001&AFID=become_df&LNM=|12730179&CPNG=women&ci_src=16079562&ci_sku=12730179

That way I didn’t have to worry about an actual bra showing, but I wasn’t worried I’d accidentally flash anyone either.
