Lightweight wings with unusual hidden harness

Helllo!
I'm trying to remake my wings for my Angel Persona costume Larger and more theatrical in every way. I'm trying to avoid straps around my shoulders (but I will if I NEED to) and keep any harness material down to what I can cover with my costume. The costume itself does not provide ANY substantial support and not much coverage.

So, What can I use to make the Largest (Vertical) and Lightest wing materials possible with the least amount of harness needed? And what could that harness be? Right now I'm leaning Pleather straps, but Its going under Latex... soooo...I have no idea what I'm doing.

Here are costume and reference pictures:

Ideas greatly appreciated

My guess would be... Wire and craft foam. You'd make a wire base in a U-shape like this:

Probably the length of your back or close to, and add some horizontal bars for additional support. It'd go under your bra or something equally close fitting so the wings will stay up without straps. You'll want to wrap the wire in floral or electrical tape and then use a little ribbon around the area that'll touch your skin (comfort!). Then make some sort of vague wingy-shape out of the wire to be a base for your foam feathers!
