@CupCakeMeg: Damn it. Sorry, Wish I could tell you as I looked at some pics at the weekend that some friends took of me in my dress and thought my dress doesn’t actually look like it’s bustled which really pleased me as I wanted my dress to still look like my dress when it was bustled and it not looking too bulky at the back etc if you know what I mean.

I cant wait to have my final fitting to see how my bustle is going to actually look. Bustles are unlimited to what you can do for them….there is not just the standared under, over, or pick up. I actually have a 7 part bustle. I have chiffon over satin and if they bustle it with the traditional bustle the satin would rip the chiffon fabric. So they are bustling the satin underneathe and then bustling the chiffon on top seperate!
I wish I had pictures to show you…but I wont have it until sometime the first week of Sept!

d_mari3: Exactly right!! You can do anything, don’t be limited to just the three ‘traditional’ choices.
Here is mine. I love it because it doesn’t look like a bustle, it just looks like my dress without the train. My dress is double layer, and the satin under layer has a 5-point inverted/under bustle. The lace is a 9-point american/over bustle. The points attach across the natural point of the trumpet skirt where the train starts, which is what I think is so great; it just makes it look like the same dress without the train. My seamstress decided on this after I was disappointed with the way the inverted and traditional bustles changed the silhouette of my dress. I am IN LOVE WITH IT!!

@CupCakeMeg: that’s a ballgown with 6 layers of crinoline, a stiffener and taffeta skirt. The train is chapel length, so it’s not HUGE, but pretty big! The traditional bustle looked like I had a big fat butt.

This is what mine was supposed to look like. However, the day of the wedding the photographer had my husband busle the dress and it didn’t look right. It’s a 3 point American bustle.

I just had my first fitting and we talked about doing what is know on the Bee as the Nacho Bustle(search for it for details). My dress has buttons all down the back and I didn’t want to detract from that detail and didn’t want a poofy butt. I’m excited!

@MrsBrightSkies: Do you have a photo of the back of your dress without the bustle? I LOVE how yours turned out.
Here is mine from my fitting this past Saturday – I’ve already asked if she could try an over bustle instead (from my post this morning). I’m just not loving it, and I think it looks sloppy.
