I finally had my first fitting! After nearly falling off the stand thing when the seamstress told me how much alterations would be costing, she tried to get me to choose a bustle style. lol. I have to figure it out before my next fitting in a few weeks and I need inspiration!
What kind of bustle did you have? Any inspiration pics?
My dress is a Maggie Sottero Avalon:

I personally don’t have any to share but many of the bees here are fans of what is now called the nacho bustle, due to Mrs.Nachos explaination here: http://www.weddingbee.com/2010/08/25/ballroom-bustle-train-flip-how-to/
P.S. I LOVE your user name!!!! I’m a huge hp fan myself & it makes me happy to find others on here too! (i would totally be in ravenclaw too)

Your gown is very beautiful. I about had a heart attack when I was told how much my alterations are too 🙁
Here is a link to some pictures of bustles. You might see something you like there.

I feel like there is a lack of bustle share-age out there… I have searched for good pictures, but no one seems to have too many… probably the last thing you think to take a picture of :o/
Anyone else find that too?

Well I haven’t gotten my dress in or altered yet, but here’s pictures of my train and the bustle that my bridal consultant recommended. I think she called it an American or English bustle. My dress is very different than yours though — mine has all the prettiness on the bottom so I want to keep that intact with the bustle — so I’m not sure if this helps at all, but I hope it does!

@Koala Bear: Thanks for link! (And yeah, I’m a huge HP nut, lol! Ravenclaws unite!!)
@ustechie: Thank you 😀
@noritake22: Thanks! I know, I was expecting half of what she told me. :S And thanks for the link! I have a hard time visualizing what some of those will look like on my dress, I guess I’ll just have to get her to show me all of the options she knows of next time. And hopefully she won’t charge me another $$$ for it, haha.
@anuicupcake: Your dress is amazing! I think that bustle will look very pretty!

Oh i also found this old thread that actually had more than 2 dresses (i had to go through like 10 pages of archives) so hopefully this helps too!

Here is a link to a thread with a lot of good bustle pictures. I have it saved for when we are ready to begin working on my daughter’s bustle. Years ago I made my own dress and did a one-point pick up bustle because the back of my dress was heavily beaded and it showed it off perfectly but my daughter’s dress is going to be much more difficult and like you, I’m looking for inspiration!

That dress will look STUNNING bustled. Unbustled then bustled, you will look gorgeous all night long in that!!!

When you meet with your seamstress, just ask her to give you some suggestions for bustling your gown. I really had no clue what I wanted, but she showed me how to “show off” the details of the back of my gown. Unfortunately, I don’t have any quality pics…but here are a couple (one at the seamstress & one at the reception that a guest took).
P.S. Sorry the pics are huge.
P.S.S. I think the “Nacho-style” bustle would look great!
