    @sofiekitty:  It’s still gorgeous though! I wouldn’t be concerned.

    I have a french bustle, but my dress is a silk-satin ball gown so it really doesn’t affect the look from the front.

    My bustle was kind of doing that and what we did was when we bustled it at the wedding, we kind of pushed those weird sides in. I wouldn’t worry too much about it because once you get your first dance over with, most of your pictures will be from the waist up and no one will notice the particularities of your bustle…not even you!

    There just might not be enough skirt on your dress for a double and maybe there are the wrong number of points. My lace trumpet looked the same from the front when bustled.

    My bustle did not affect the shape of my dress but my dress had a lot more fabric and wiggle room, yours is much more body hugging.
