This is my bustle. It ties underneath

Just bring safety pins with you! My sister’s broke and we just pinned that sucker up. It took 5 minutes and held all night long (she had a french bustle on an all lace A-line gown)

My bustle was constructed out of really sturdy hooks and it held up quite nicely!  i was really nervous about it coming undone, so my seamstress was good about making it really secure.

My advice is make sure you don’t still have a small train. My bustle was stepped on a few times (MOH sewed it once and Darling Husband stepped on it about 10 min later) and after the wedding there was another tear- I ended up holding the "loop" while dancing cause I was stepped on a few times-  just make sure the bustle really bustles the whole bottom of your dress up.

So my bro in laws wedding was two weeks ago and my new SIL had only ONE girl who knew how to bustle her and she basically left to go to the reception BEFORE we were done with pictures at the church!!!  there were three of us trying to figure the darn thing out annd its was no easy task!  So my advice….make sure you have TWO girls who know how to help you with it and be sure to coordinate that one of them stay behind with you to help! I put it down right away on my checklist….. :O

Ya my best friends bustle broke during the dance as well, but we pinned her up with safety pins, and it did the job.


I always hear of them breaking, so make sure that it is done with sturdy hooks etc.
