At your fitting the seamstress should be able to help you with that. She will show you the different types of bustle options and you can decide then. Good luck – let us know how it goes!

@LisaC: thanks! i’ll be sure to take pics to post here.
i was just wondering if anybody had any pictures of theirs already bustled, just so i could have an idea before going in.

Love this dress. Most of the trumpets/mermaids I’ve seen are a French bustle. You could also do a mini-version of this:
My seamstress color-matched the ribbon to the button. So, the pink ribbon went to the button sewn on with pink thread, etc. It was very easy to figure out that way.

@future.mrs.v: I would get a french bustle. They look so great and not just like a pinned up dress. I would at least ask to see what it looks like. I know it is harded to do for a seamstress, so the don’t always recomend it.
