I’m partial to the one on the left…. plus you already mentioned you would prefer if it was under:

Here’s a picture of mine–I also have a lace overlay.  It’s an underbustle (they called it "Victorian").

I got the same dress!  I love it! 

My wedding is next July, and I haven’t even gone to discuss bustles.  I’m curious which one you chose.  I didn’t realize there were so many options!

my dress looks pretty similar to the one mimi55 posted above.  my seamstress did a 3-pickup bustle.  except the pickups are just below my knees so they don’t really take away from the mermaid shape at all and I can sit down on a chair without sitting on the bustle.  What I liked about my bustle too was that first the satin underneath layer was picked up once, and then the lace layer is separated from the satin and picked up 3x.  I love how it looks when it is all bustled.

oh I just looked up your dress!  It’s the one I almost bought.  It’s practically the same as my maggie sottero “phillippa”.

 

I highly recommend having your seamstress do one bustle for the satin underneath and separate the lace from the satin and do separate bustles for the lace!
