How to dismantle a bra

I recently purchased this dress
. I need to remove the padded cups in the shelf bra without destroying the dress. Is this possible?

I love this dress, but I definitely can't wear it without a real bra. If it was just a shelf bra I could manage, but the padded cups add a level of lumpiness that is unacceptable. I have decent sewing skills but I'm concerned about attacking this problem without a game plan and winding up destroying the dress. So far the only solutions I can think of are:
-Cut out just the padded cups from the shelf bra. But then what do I do with the two giant holes?
-Cut out the entire shelf bra, which is sewn into the shoulder straps.
I'm willing to accept the fact that there's no good way of removing the cups without rending the dress unwearable but I'd rather take my chances if there is a workable solution to this.
