do u like simple? bc i would imagine that a single point over bustle would work well here…..

 i know i’ve seen a dress very similiar to this on someone’s bio who had the back of her dress done up in a few pickup points that looked very nice.

Leanna’s website is awesome! and she is great at answering emails too!


definitely check it out if u haven’t already….

 Good Luck!

OH!  I was thisclose to buying that dress, I love it!!!

When I tried it on, the saleslady showed me a traditional single bustle and a single French bustle.  I thought the French looked better, IMO. I have pictures of the French …


In my experience, no dress "comes" with a bustle, therefore ensuring that you’re paying for alterations … although I just saw on someone’s blog they did it themselves and I was totally impressed … so don’t rule that out!

Just a note — if you don’t need any alterations, I would suggest doing the bustle yourself.  It was incredibly easy and my fabric was very delicate chiffon.  With your dress it would be even easier because the fabric will be easier for  you to work with and you will have more room for "making mistakes".  If you have any questions about how I did it, just pm me! 

Thank you for those of you giving me props for doing my own bustle!
