this was tricky for my seamstress. they first tried to do a 21 point bustle, but they had to add buttons along my butt and i hated how it looked unbustled. what we ended up doing was a french bustle (still with about 25 points) with little white hooks underneath. your seamstress will discuss your options- i chose the option that looked best unbustled because i wanted it to look best in pictures that way, and i was just okay with how it looked bustled.

Miss Coral:  I had a tulle skirt- and after a long conversation with my seamstress, I opted to hem my gown and not have a long train.

My seamstress did not suggest this- she was very objective, and simply explained to me both sides.

I would have needed a 19 point bustle- would would have been over $200.  She also explained to me- that while it may completely work out okay- tulle- at least like in my dress- was more likely to potentially rip or tear with a bustle if someone were to step on my gown in the right way.

Since a correctly bustled gown will still sweep the floor- I opted to have my gown trimmed so I had a short train- that never needed to be bustled.  I don’t regret it for a minute.
