I would probably do a french bustle with that dress.  I have seen lots of ruffled or detailed skirts with a french bustle and I love the look.

This is the back of my dress

This is what they did for a bustle when I went in for my first fitting.  They did a 3 point over bustle hiding it underneath the layers

mine was an underbustle made to look like there was no bustle

Below is a pic of the dress with the ruffles… only on one side

Hi Ladies, I love ruffles! My train has a combo of lace/ruffles. Sorry I don’t have a pic, but I plan to have a french bustle. I am a big fan of the american bustle, but when the consultant pinned it up both ways (french vs american), with the way the ruffles lay on my dress, the french bustle surprising looked better to me.

Here’s me in the sample dress the day I ordered it. Again, no pic with the dress bustled, sorry!

My wedding gown was a fit and flare with rows of large ruffles.  We designed the train to simply button off underneath the ground-level ruffle.  After the ceremony, we undid the buttons, and it was gone!  I loved it! 

Here’s my mom’s blog post about how she made it happen: [link removed for self promotion – sorry!]
