Question Help With Costume Fit

So one my upcoming cosplays is Aqua from Kingdom hearts and I'm having trouble with the costume as I didn't make but rather purchased it online.
Now, the problem is that I have large breasts, a large C, and the costume has an open back which means no bra. I have no idea to wear it without an incident occuring and need some advice as to holding by boobs in place. I've read that some girls do it with duct tape, but to be honest that sounds really painful, and I'd rather avoid it if I can.
If any could offer advice/suggestions it'd be much appreciated!

I think Wal Mart sells these adhesive bras that might help?

^ That.

Or, if you need/want more support some companies make bras that are meant to be hidden under a halter top.

On the cheaper end, those "convertible" bras can usually be worn with one strap going around the neck - so it wouldn't show at all.

Check out this picture of a fancy one for an idea.

A non-bulky halter-shape bathing suit top could work, too.

Actually in the pipes:
- Remaking Ser Loras doublet.
- Luke Skywalker, A New Hope
- Wind Waker starter costume in swim material
Eventually: Paul from Dune, Faramir, Harry Sullivan

if all else fails, flesh colored bra. Put skin colored makeup on it if you must, but people will care less about seeing your bra than you think.

Sew a bra into the front. Get either breast cups or cut the part of the bra that will be visible off, and sew/glue/whatever the front of the bra where it will need to be to give you proper support. I recommend also using fashion tape to hold that in place on your body on both sides and possibly reinforcing the neck. Those things should all be relatively simple and not require a great amount of skill, just a some minor catch stitching should do the trick.

Best of luck
