Strapless dress vs Strapless bra

I am a long time reader....first time poster!
I hope to be a lovely larger bride, in about 3 months times actually but its not going particularly well.
I am getting married at the end of December, I ordered my dress all the way back in April. I was told it would be ready by October. Turns out it won't be ready until November. I can cope with that except it turns out I might not be able to wear that dress.
I was fitted today by Debras....turns out I am a 14H!!! o_O!!! I was fitted reccently by a woman in Myer who told me I was an 18E (explains why my bras have been so unsupportive).
But sadly Debras told me that they have no strapless bras in my size. Nothing at all. And that I need to put straps on my dress My dress is strapless.
I went and looked at the sample dress of my wedding dress at the shop, and I am really worried that it won't suit straps. But I won't know until novemeber, 1 month before the wedding if I need to suddenly look for a new wedding dress.
The women at the wedding dress shop were normally so helpful and nice when I was choosing the dress, and when I came back worried that it wouldn't fit my massive boobs they just brushed me off.
I am really starting to freak out that I won't have a wedding dress for my wedding day :-( :-(
Do I start looking for another dress?

This place has up to a G but they may be able to special order a H or know where you can go to get the right size, I'm getting my corset from here
Oh - These ones stock up to an L cup apparently - I've bought a few things from them.
Or here - A few members here have recommended this place.
I'm sure you will find something, it may not be easy but there are brands out there that recognise not everyone is a B-D cup! Good luck.

14H - Wedding Day Torsolette - It says its has detachable straps ....
I can empathise with you. I am a big girl with small boobs. So I hope you find what your looking for.

Is the dress itself going to give you any support in the bust?
That's what I was going to suggest.

I have canned the duct tape application and am looking at all the awesome sites you sent me!
I shall let you know how I go!

More food for thought !1 are they able to sew a bra or support into your dress?? I had trouble getting a bra (ran out of time my fault) but my dress maker put extra support into my dress

I'm an 16H and i have strapless bras So never fear.
I recently found bravimissio and they have a lovely corselette, which I'm going to get for under my strapless dress, and I think it is under $100 aud from memory
