Armhole problem!

Hi, hoping someone can help me with this!

I have bought a lovely dress for a wedding I'm going to in a couple of weeks. It's perfect apart from the fact that the arm holes go pretty low and show the side of my bra. Not just a peep, but most of it.

Without ruining the look of the dress, and avoiding having to keep a wrap on all day, what can I wear underneath to stay appropriate?

Dress is chiffony and turquoise.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Deep, that's my worry.

Don't have a suitable bra at the moment and ideally wanted to avoid as they aren't cheap. I have pretty big boobs and cheap bras never fit properly.

Also don't really want to have bra flashing if at all possible. The dress is quite short so I don't want to be inappropriate!

Could you get it altered? Otherwise I would look for a slip that matches the colour of the dress as closely as possible.

It was quite cheap, so I'd be loath to spend probably as much again getting it altered.

I've never had occasion to buy a slip before. Could you recommend anywhere?

Clueless here!

I have no idea where you would get one the right colour, the only alternative is to go for nude underwear/slip/camisole or something like [[http://www.marksandspencer.com/Cotton-Rich-Scoop-Neck-Lace/dp/B004VOM2RA?ie=UTF8&ref=sr_1_36&nodeId=62813031&sr=1-36&qid=1315751731 this might work over your bra, without feeling like you are wearing extra layers.

I meant this.
