Your seamstress should be able to show you how different bustles will look on your dress. It was about $200 for me to get the bustle and hemming, not sure what the bustle was alone.

When you go have your bustle done, ask them to show you a few different bustles, there are over and under, and a few different ways of that. The most popular is the french bustle, but because of the detailing and heavy fabric of my dress, I chose the duck tail.
I didn’t go to a bridal salon to have mine done, I went to a small alterations place in my hometown. They charge about $30 to do it.

I would say the american bustle would look great……

I live in a smaller area, but when I went to have my first fitting, the only alterations I needed were a bustle and bra cups. Those cost me $25…I think that was pretty inexpensive from what I have seen from other posters!

I love American bustles. I think they look soft and romantic with a lacy dress, and they show off more of the detail than a French bustle.
Mine is a 2-point American and it was $55.
