Here is my bustle. The underskirt was held up with a a single point over bustle and the lace layer with a single point under bustle. I really liked how the dress looked and moved bustled.

@Whitanella: Thank you! I put it in myself and it held up great!

The part of the bustle that you see is a french (under) bustle. I liked how the lace hung with only a single point in the centre of the chapel train, although I was a bit nervous about how it would hold up if someone stepped on my dress.

@Whitanella: I do a fair bit of sewing, but nothing like this before. I found used instructions I found online here. Putting in the points was easy, the hard part was deciding what bustle I liked the most. There are a lot of different ways to bustle, hopefully you can find one that you like!
