Often I see threads on this board with a discussion about a ‘bustle’
I live in Europe and I’ve never heard of this word and I’m very curious…
My impression is that a bustle is some sort of ‘knot’; a way to tie up your train so you won’t trip over it when you’re dancing.
Or is it something else???
Thanls a lot in advance for explaining!

it’s a way of pinning up your train, usually with hooks or small ribbons that you knot.

youre right…. people use it like “bustle your train”…. many times ties or buttons are used to keep the train up 🙂

It’s not really a “knot” but it is a way to tie up your train (while still making it a cohesive part of the dress) so you don’t trip on it after the ceremony is over.
Different bustles are used for different kinds of dresses. Your seamstress will usually be able to help you figure out the best way to bustle your dress.

ok, thanks a lot!
By the way, I really like looking at the weddinbee boards. It seems that when you’e in doubt about some aspect of your wedding, you always get a lot of support. And all comments about dresses etc etc are positive.
In Europe, people are in general more straightforward, but sometimes that simply means ‘rude’. Its funny to notice the difference.
