My chiffon dress had a low French bustle.  It was basically bubbled at the bottom, it had 8 looks & ties in it, so it took a lot of work to get it up.  I wish I had a picture to show you, but I didn’t get any pictures during alterations and below is a side blurb about the issues I had on our wedding day.

(I bought a sample dress, so I had it cleaned before the wedding, and the loops broke during cleaning, and we didn’t realize it until after the wedding while it was getting tied up.  So my dress ended up being safetly pinned where it should have been tied, because of that annoyance we forgot to get a bustle picture)

@jbbs1222:  

I’ve seen some ladies get an underbustle (French bustle) for the lining, and an overbustle (American bustle) for the chiffon.
