Backless, strapless bra for large chest?

Backless, strapless bra that won’t irritate skin?

Hello! Does anyone have any recommendations for backless, strapless coverage that isn’t tape?
I have used boob tape and good lines tapes. Both gave amazing support and coverage, but both times I wore them I got terrible rashes and blisters due to my skin being sensitive and possible some reaction to the adhesive. It also took days to get the adhesive off.
I’m getting married in September and I have a backless halter top, and I’m trying to find something that won’t hurt my skin.
Here’s the other catch: I need to wear this for over 8 hours! All the silicone bras and tapes recommend that these only be worn for 8 hours or less….but I need to wear this for the entirety of my wedding day, which is going to last way longer than 8 hours. I’m starting to get frustrated and I don’t know what to do!
I did order the Nidor silicone bras last night to give them a try and a few other ones on Amazon, but I’m coming to the end of my options.
If it helps, I’m a 34 G!
Thank you for any help in advance!

    How low is the back? Can you make a low back bustier work? Le Mysterie has one that I was able to wear recently all day (I'm also a 34G).


    I had to use tape on my wedding day, a week later I can still feel where it was.

    Thanks so much! It’s all the way low, there’s not really room for any actual bra or strap, the sides are narrow too so it would probably peak out!
    Will check out though, would definitely use something like that for other dresses!

    I know! The tape drives me up the wall, it’s so irritating how it takes forever to come off.

    I'm a 34H so I definitely know the struggle! I would suggest going to a shop that specializes in lingerie and undergarments. They should be able to help. I went to one and got a backless, strapless longline bra that fits perfectly. If you're not able to make it to a shop like this, look into Fumi Desalu Vold on YouTube. She posts a ton of bra hacks for those with larger chests, and I think that she posted a bra hack about halter tops recently.

    Good luck!

    On a recommendation from someone here I ordered a misses kisses bra. They make them for all sizes and depths, and I liked the extra cleavage it gave me. I ordered the shallow version and I'm a B/C cup, so small.

    I would see what your seamstress can do for you. Most of them time they can help out a lot. I'll not wearing a bra with my dress, but it's been altered to match my body
