I had a similar style dress (chiffon overlay, DB V9743), and my bustle ended up pretty complicated actually.  What they did on mine was bustle the chiffon separately.  The under-fabric had a three point bustle with snaps (but not an underbustle), and the chiffon had 5 with hooks and loops.  However, at least part of that was because of the lace going down the back of the train – you may be able to do something simpler and get away with three points on the chiffon.

I almost went with a chiffon gown and the seamstress/shop owner was planning on doing a 3-point overbustle. The gown had a chapel length train though so I don’t know if that makes a difference.

Personally, I’m just going to have my train chopped. I’m having a short and informal ceremony and I do not want to deal with a bustle, so having the train isn’t worth it to me.

ETA: I love your dress. It looks amazing on you.

This site tells you how to do them basically…the Austrian one is done by create a tube along the back seam line and putting ribbon in it so you can pull it like you would blinds

I had a chiffon dress and had a French bustle on the lining and a 3-point American bustle on the chiffon.  This allowed the chiffon to still have some flow and movement without making the bustle heavy enough to damage the fabric.  I think it worked out beautifully; you could hardly even tell it was bustled!

LOVE your dress – not to thread-jack, but could you please post the maker and style?  This is just what my daughter’s been looking for!

Love your dress! My dress was chiffon, too, and I had a 5 point overbustle I believe. Here’s the best picture I have of it.
