    I like the second option better (looks like a ballroom bustle to me, actually). It works better with the mermaid shape of the dress.

    One more option you might consider is the “Side Sling” bustle (see this site, scroll down a bit). It might look cool with the asymmetrical draping on your dress.

    I like the French bustle.  I think it blends in with the bottom of your dress better than the regular bustle.

    I think the regular bustle looks a lot better. The French bustle makes it look like the dress is just kind of bunched up in the back. Your dress is beautiful by the way!

    I like the regular one.  I am all for French bustles, but I think it takes away from the overall beauty of your dress.  Keep it Simple 🙂

    I voted French bustle.  That’s my personal preference in bustles though…

    Normally I love a French bustle, but on your dress I think the second option works better.

    @bleusteel:  +1  I also like the French better.  I don’t really like the look of regular bustles.

    If you’re really undecided, which way is easier to do up?  Maybe that can help you decide.
