What bustle would be best with this dress?
I’m going back for my second fitting today and am thinking they might want to do the bustle so I should know what I want!
These photos are from when they were messing around with the dress… so they’re kind of sloppy. I like #1 a little better maybe but they said if I went with that one I’d have to get buttons on the outside of the dress? Is that right? I thought there was another way of doing it, but maybe not…
Any other ideas? (please post photos)
(Ignore how weird my back looks in these photos!)

Lovely dress. I’d go for bustle 1.

I like the first one, too – but I don’t know how they could do it without putting the buttons on the outside…maybe they can be hidden in the lace?
Gorgeous dress, either way!

I like number 1.
At the salon I used to work for they used clear buttons (dime sized)or white hooks, and small white thread loops that were almost impossible to find. I know some salons use white hook and eyes instead. I would ask your seamstress what method she prefers and if you are still worried, then I would go with 2.
Your guest wont be looking for the buttons/hooks, and they won’t show up in pictures either.
Hope this Helps
