@Lola_bride:  I remember seeing pictures of tulle dress brides with over (American) bustles on this site. I think it creates a cleaner silhouette than under (French) bustles.

I don’t have any suggestions for a bustle, but just wanted to tell you that your dress is gorgeous!!

Here’s mine! It’s tulle, but there is a one “solid” layer under all the other layers of tulle. (I imagine your dress would have one too? After all even multiple layers of tulle would still be see-through lol.) And I am not sure what this kind of bustle is called, but I did hear the seamstress say there are 7 “ties” or snaps!!

if the salon you bought it from won’t bustle it, go somewhere else. I have a tulle bottom gown with a rather long train and I was told that I would need a custom bustle, but it would definitely be possible. I’ve seen someone on here post photos of her bustle in my exact dress.

@Sunnyday278:  Beautiful!  I hope my bustle turns out that well.  Do you have a hoop under your skirt?

@Junip3r:  Thank you! No hoop, but I do have a bit of a “stiff” slip.

i’m commenting to follow this thread- my fit and flare gown has a lace bodice and tulle skirt and i’m concerned about the bustle as well- i agree that the over-bustle looks best. i’ll be taking mine in for a fitting soon, i’ll post if i learn anything helpful from the seamstress!

I thought I remembered seeing a Bee that had a tulle Lazaro who ended up with something crazy like a 40 point bustle… but it was bustled.

@Lola_bride:  Thank you! No hoop, but some kind of slip. I don’t even know it its even like, a crinoline, its just stiff fabric. The slip itself is more of like an A-line, just to make sure the tulle keeps its shape.

I think mine is a French bustle. 11 points. Really easy to do after the ceremony and I like the ‘cloud’ look it gives. 🙂

Decent sized tulle train.

11 point bustle. First was at the alterations place, second was Mom’s first attempt and the dress was a little wrinkly from the garment bag. Pictures are a tad lopsided because I turned around, but again I like the ‘cloud’ effect it gives. I think it goes really nicely with the soft tulle and romantic lace.

@mgkush:  that’s my dress too! the other bustle I saw was I guess the American kind. I think I like yours better because it’s less pouffy in the butt.

@SarahCF:  That’s what I thought too! And it’s only the best dress ever. I really do love this bustle and couldn’t imagine having it another way!
