Hi! What kind of bustle can I get with my style dress that won’t look bad? If any? All of those little layers are separated and when you pull them up it looks like a peacock is coming out of my butt lol do I just have to leave it alone ?

Oh my!!! I have a question! Can a skirt on the Maggie Sottero Monet be raised? About 3-4 inches! The saleslady told me no, but I’m 5ft tall so the skirt starts way low on my hips, I really want it higher up like its supposed to be on a taller girl

@ninanetti:  another bustle question – what would you suggest?  The pace I got my dress suggested a 12 point bustle which seems a little excessive and expensive.

Can this be bustled? How and what does a tulle bustle look like? I plan to wear a hoop like Cinderella under it.

So above is a picture of my dress, I’ve been playing around with the idea of adding straps to it.. As a seamstress do you think this would be a good idea? I was thinking of tulle straps so they are a little thicker. Would this look ok?

The stock photo on top is what i hope it will look like and the way it looks now is at the bottom. I am hoping a hoop will work.. which size hoop do you think it needs?

 

Also which bustle??
