Primark certainly used to do the backless bras and I know they sell tit tape. If that fails, Boots do tit tape and somewhere like debenhams or m&s will most certainly have some kind of suitable bra solution

Unless they're made of silicone I really wouldn't recommend going bra-less as a 32F no matter how perky you think they are especially if its a cheapish fabric. I'm a perky-ish 32e and know I'd be bouncing about all over the joint plus would be worried about my nipples showing through dress

Are you sure you can't wear a black bra if you got tit tape?

Don't bother with those sticky on cup things - they don't really work for those big of cup and hurt like hell when you try and take them off

Oh, just realised, cowl is at the back rather than front. Thinking about it, it would be a bit pornographic if it was the other way round grin

You can get bra's where the back clasp is actually just above your bum - think its playtex that do them and also wonderbra

Ultimo do backless and strapless but they aren't cheap. You can get low back converters more reasonably which you add on to your normal bra so it hooks around your waist and not around your back. Failing that I'd try those nipple cover 'pasties' to prevent nipping out!

The one time I used it, it was double sided so you cut of a strip, peeled the covering,stuck it to your body, peeled the other side and then stuck your dress/top to the other side of the tape

Nude coloured silicon cups were what I wore at my wedding and have reworn multiple times since. Miraculous. Approx £45 from ASOS after I read the cheaper ones we're shit weren't very good

Ouch! How could you possibly stick tape across your nipples? I would ,go with the low back bra or converter.
