I’m no seamstress, but that train is a lot like mine and I went with the under-bustle cause it looked the best with the skirt in the end. With the seam around the butt, mine looked funny having it bustled on the outside.

I agree with nachos that an under bustle would be better. Attached is my friend’s dress, it’s very similar to yours and she did an over bustle and I just think an under bustle would have been smoother.

In case you can’t see it too well, she basically had 7 bustle loops in a straight row, which I don’t like. I think because of how the skirt flows out though, when doing a french bustle on that style of dress you don’t really have any other option than bustles in a row. To me, it looks like a shelf on your butt.

Bluebook – I don’t have a picture yet…it’s being altered right now and I won’t get it back till the end of the month. I’ll take pics for you when I get her back though.
