Help me solve my bra-lemma

Before I go further, let me just announce that you still have a few days left to check out Nordstrom's half-yearly sale for women and kids. Can't believe we haven't talked about this yet. 

I was able to pop into Nords yesterday to check it out. (Full disclosure: my sister/ personal shopper works there) I left with a few great staples (this basic tee in blue and black, and this sporty chambray skirt), but I also left with a problem.


I fell in love with this orange open-back dress. Perfect for summer, perfect for early-fall Gator football games. Easy, breezy and bright.

But, ahem, I guess it'd be more accurate to say that I have two problems.

Please explain where a bra fits into this picture.

A regular or strapless, even in nude, wouldn't do -- not with the keyhole putting the strap right there on display. And the silky polyester doesn't exactly make it possible to go without... not without the potential for an indecent exposure arrest, that is.


- Those chicken-cutlet sticky-cups everyone wore to prom. 

- Those petal pasties

- Duct tape

All I remember about the chicken-cutlets is that they slid off everybody on the dance floor. So, you know, there's that.

The petal stickers would cover the crucial elements, but don't seem like they'd offer nearly enough support that this flimsy fabric warrants. 

As for the duct tape, the serious suggestion of a friend, ouch.

A quick Google search comes up with variations of those, with some of the adhesive cups running upwards of $70, making the duct tape option look pretty attractive. 

But seriously, how would you wear this? Help!
