@Jen51287:  I don’t know of any dresses that come with bustles already made in, I would assume because usually there are a few bustle options that depend on what look the bride wants.

 

Sorry I don’t have any before and after pics for you, I wore mine bustled all night because it was just too much to drag around!

Dresses have to be altered for a bustle.  There are several different types.  I had a french bustle.

@Jen51287 Do you have a pic of your dress?

I also have a French bustle (but I learned on the bee there are tons of different kinds).  I recommend asking your seamstress for her best recommendation based on your type of dress.

My dress did not come with the bussles. I had eight or nine points added to make mine bussle. The lady that did my alterations did a great job because many people thought I had a removable train.
