I had my dress taken in extensively, it was a sample size 12 and taken in to probably a 6 or so.  Also had the train hemmed and a couple other little things done (like fix the zipper). Total was $350

About $300 for bustle, taking it in on the sides/bust adding boob cups.

I was wondering the same thing! I am having mine removed. My seamstress is AMAZING and the best part she is only charging $250 to alter everything. It needed a lot of work in the bust plus it has to be hemmed up and the train removed. If I wanted a bustle she would have charged the same amount.
