I haven’t had it done yet, but at Group USA they told me it’d be about $150 for an American style bustle. I know French would be more.

@marie_sutton:  Are you going through the bridal salon where you purchased your dress?  I have heard that the salons charge WAY more than a local alterations shop would.  If you can find out what shop the salon uses, you can skip the middle man and go directly to the shop, usually for a much lower price.

Mine was a 13 pt under bustle and was included in my alterations, which I got a few sizes taken in, cups added and my dress hemmed as well for $135

$15 for each bustle….

BUT… I had 24 bustles.  

They ended up capping the charge at 20 bustles – because it was giving me heart attack.  Total=$300

I am from Cincinnati, same as Gemstone and I also went to my fitting a few weeks ago and found out I only need bustle’s (WOOHOOOO) and had to get 3 @ $15 a piece.

In the hundreds sounds absurd for a BUSTLE!

I had a one point bustle added but it was really two hooks for extra support.
