I did not have much time for alterations but I am now thinking I chose the wrong bustle. Should I have chosen the bustle similar to this but with one point? She said this one would be easier to sit down and more secure and holds the weight better. I was kind of caught off guard because I have never seen this one and didn’t know I would have another option! These are photos from my final fitting…sorry they did not turn out the greatest.

I like it. I don’t think it’s the wrong one.
Though who ever did it…pin one side higher than the other…and that would just bug me to death!..or maybe it’s the angle of the picture taken.

I think it looks great and would probably pick it over a one-point.

I like it. It’s similiar to the one I wanted but my seamstress didn’t feel like was strong enough to hold my heavy, heavy skirt. So, I don’t think it’s the wrong one…I like it alot.

It’s preference, but I think the one-point would look better. with two points, it looks like a panel of cloth at the back as if it’s not part of the dress at all. Personally, I would ask the seamstress to redo it to make it one-point. BUT that’s just my preference.

I agree with Katy. My preference would be the one-point. The two points don’t look bad but I prefer the one-point. If you stay with the two-point, the left point is a bit lower than the right. Make sure you let the seamstress know that.

It doesn’t look bad but like the other bees I like the one point too!

how about an underbustle? that way you have the 2 points so it’s more secure but it’s not flat across your back – it’ll be a little poof instead.

Thanks. I think the uneveness is just the picture and how my sister did it – I don’t think it was all the way looped around…at least I hope that is it. I guess I just feel the one point stands out more and this looks more natural. She said this would be more secure, which I hope it is because I don’t want to have to worry about it breaking!

I actually really like it! It looks very natural In the first pic I had to do a double take before I realized it was actually a bustle and not just how the dress was made!

When I went for my fitting, the seamstress said that putting only one point sometimes equals not holding through reception. I think it looks fine!

I really like this bustle, and yes its the first time I’ve seen one like it too. I always think the over bustles with one point attached looks a little like a tail (not to offend anyone who loves them though). Great Look!

I did a 3 point bustle on mine… same effect, but with draping for each point to add interest.

How about a french bustle? I’m not a huge fan of the American overbustles, but how about what Mrs.DG suggests? Two points with some draping to add visual interest? I think a low multi point french bustle would just look gorgeous, but your choice of course 🙂
