Sorry for photo overload, but I am hoping at least one of these is helpful!  I had a full ballgown with several layers of underskirt floof (all attached; no additional crinoline) with a train. We did a 5-point bustle–one in the middle, then two on either side of it.  The points tucked up under some of the lace of the dress and it blended so you couldn’t really even tell it was bustled; it was pretty awesome!  The bustle points were on the outside of the skirt–so it tucked up and over, but the lace overlay could be moved over it.  Does any of that make sense?

Here’s the back with the train down:

And then a couple of the dress, post-bustle:
