Major Bar Chords 5th String Root :-(

I am trying to learn D Major for a song but I cannot get the bar on the 5th fret and hold three strings down on the 7th fret at the same time. Any tips?

Honestly, I cheat when I play that chord shape, I just play the top four strings omitting the root in the bass.
I've got the spirit, but lose the feeling.
