My dress had a lace overlay. The alterations lady basically did a one-point bustle on it twice, once for the bottom layer and once for the overlay. Two separate bustles. She used clear buttons. I thought it would show, but I swear you couldn’t tell at all. We had trouble finding the button to bustle it after the ceremony.

Good luck!

Following to see what responses- my dress has a sheer, lace train as well

My dress has a lace overlay with a long train. Here’s my pictures of the dress with the train down and then it bustled. 🙂

Lots of lace!

And here it is bustled:

There’s a bustle underneath the lace overlay and then there’s the three button one picking up all that lace. She did it this way instead of a french bustle (I think that’s what it’s called) so you wouldn’t lose seeing all the lace details. 🙂
Hope this helps!
