    Default Anyone know any tricks to get my boobs to stay put in this dress?

    i got this dress in white (easier to see here in this color...) and both the front and back are really low. anyone know of any tricks - maybe using duct tape like they supposedly do in pageants, etc.? - or any super low cross back bras?

    i can't link to the back of the dress but you can see it here: Silk Cotton Party Dress - Women's Clothing and Apparel - Chic Dresses, Fashion Tops, Shoes, Bottoms, Denim and Accessories

    thanks for the help!!

    ETA: i'm a 34DD so that might change the responses a little...

    Here you go....

    You can find these in any lingerie shops

    You can find ones that are individual, too, for each breast, in case the dress is cut so low that you can see the attachment of the breast cup in the one I've used as an example

    eta: just saw icepik's post. yes, there are the gel ones. i've also seen ones that are just basically cup-shaped tape, no gel, so they don't add any volume to your boobs.
    do they still make those adhesive individual cups?
    if you can't find any, i suggest making them with duct tape.

    you can also try to find a strapless bra with a super low cross back but in my experience those usually suck. but maybe you'll get lucky.

    You're pretty busty so this could be difficult, especially because the dress is so open in the back. And you can't really go bra-less b/c you need the support.

    I think if it were me, I'd shop for a bra that was as close to the dresses color as possible, with very thin straps and a deep V in the front. Then I'd buy this to convert the bra:
    Low Down Bra Extender

    My main tip is to buy a pack of curved TopStick:
    TopStick Custom Cut by Vapon at WigWarehouse.com

    This is what I used in wardrobe styling (and for myself!) when I have a dress that I'm worried about moving around too much. Place the garment where you want it, then put on the TopStick on your skin, and press the fabric into it. It won't budge, promise. You may need to use 2-3 pieces of Top Stick per breast.

    i would try something like this..I have a similar one. it would work much better than tape or stick on cups



    Fashion Forms U Plunge Bra 29674 - Fashion Forms Bras


    a low back bustier would give better support than a low back bra, the boning helps


    Valmont Long Line Low Back Strapless Bustier Bra 919 - Valmont Bras

    I think your best bet is going to be a backless bustier BUT when you go and find one, take the dress with you and try them on together. I had been fitted for a dress and hadn't been able to find the right size bustier to wear during the actual fittings. The day I put the dress on with the bustier it was TIGHT which made no sense because it was loose without it. It took my husband and another bridesmaid to zip that bad boy up!

    I'm a 36 DD and I wear dresses like that all the time. Honestly, with it being so fitted to the body underneath the boobs, I probably wouldn't wear a bra. However, if that doesn't give you enough peace of mind or support, I recommend a bustier. It works like a charm.

    i would go with a bustier if you found one low cut enough in the front and back strap. perhaps you could dye it the aqua color if you purchased white. though i've never tried color dying a bra before. good luck!
