@Gabbahhey:  I know exactly what you’re talking about.  But I’ve never heard it called a nacho bustle. Hahaha.  Where did you get that term?  In the business it’s called a ballroom bustle.  I found a pic online of a satin dress that has one but I think your dress will look much prettier with one than this dress.  Keep in mind these bustles are very expensive because you need a LOT of bustle points in order for the hem to look even.

@Gabbahhey:  I’m commenting to follow because I was looking for this EXACT SAME THING. I’m not a fan of the way bustles look in general so originally I was going to get a dress with either no train or a sweep train, but my actual dress has a chapel train :/

@Gabbahhey:  Correction, that’s not satin dress.  Oops.  But still.  Also, a ballroom bustle won’t be too expensive for ALL dresses, but yours definitely, because your train is very wide.

What you described, I would call an over bustle or American bustle.  I guess with people posting stuff all over the internet, it’s easy to mix up terms and call something a ballroom bustle when it isn’t.  In fact if you Google “ballroom bustle” you’ll get all sorts of results!  But anyways, I’ve only done a few but they are done with buttons because once you get to the sides of the dress where you’re only folding under a little bit of fabric, if you used ties, the tie ends would totally pop out from under the dress and drag on the ground.  I guess you could use ties for the middle points and the buttons near the edges.  It doesn’t matter.

I think I had what you’re describing.  She called it an under bustle.  It had 13 ties underneath. 

This was the entire train unbustled.
