My first dress fitting is on Sunday (eek!) and I’m trying to figure out what kind of bustle I should ask for.
Here is the dress:
I don’t think I like an over-bustle… especially since it will hide most of the beading on my dress.
So I’m thinking some sort of underbustle, but how can I avoid one that looks like a labia? (I’m being serious here)
Suggestions and pics are welcome! Thanks in advance.

Underbustle! I had a 13 pt under bustle and it looked just like a ‘normal’ dress once it was done
bustled, i definitely suggest practicing the bustle and getting it in exactly the right spot though. Mine was done with ribbon ties underneath, and it ended up a little uneven on one side cause I didnt leave enough slack for some of them.

@September29: LOL, now I’ve heard of American bustles and French bustles, but that one is new to me!

Bahahahahahahaha Thank you! Thank you for being someone else besides me that thinks some of those bustles (and dresses in general) look like labia’s! I swear, I look at some dresses and just think, why on earth do people want to wear giant vagina’s! LOL! 🙂
As to bustle style, I have no idea. I’m still trying to figure mine out. The back of your dress is so beautiful it’s almost a crime to bustle!!! Good luck!!!

@pinkshoes: yours is beautiful! ill definitely inquire about that. i just wonder if it will result in a lot of lost beads… (not that it really matters, since i won’t be wearing it again…)
@phoenixandstars: hahaha yay for not being the only weird ones!! and thank you for the compliments 🙂

What about a train-flip bustle? The very end of the train is basically brought up to your bum UNDER the dress, and the edge of the train is hooked to the INSIDE of the gown in several places. Whoever helps bustle you after the ceremony will end up pretty much under your gown, but the dress will look almost the same. You’ll lose some of the beading toward the end of the train, but it looks like MOST of the beading is toward the top anyway.
