Hi Bees! I’m having a serious bustle dilemma. On the one hand I think the American Bustle looks perfect with my dress, but on the other hand, I’ve always swooned a little over the french bustles (I think because even though I obviously didn’t purchase a dress with pick ups, I LOVE them). What do you think? I’ll post pics of the back of the train and then each bustle just so you have an idea what I’m talking about…
A.) American Bustle
B.) European Bustle
As you can see, it’s got a silver inset in the train, so THAT’S what makes me think Option A. just seems to “work” better…

The American bustle works so perfectly with the design of your dress.

The American looks much better with the dress IMO.

I think if you go with the French bustle you’ll lose all of the beautiful detail on your train. I vote American.

Thanks, Bees! Of EVERYONE I’ve asked outside of the Hive as well, American seems to be the unanimous answer… And I honestly think my MOHs would have an easier time bustling the American up after the ceremony, too, as opposed to the French.

Probably the one thing or instance where I favour the American style of doing something over the French!

I think A works better with the design of your dress…which is beautiful, BTW!

I definitely think the American bustle better shows off the features of your dress!
