If you all would be so kind as to show me what kind of bustle you had on your satin trumpet gowns?
I’m having a hard time finding bustle options for my dress.
What types of bustle work best for mermaid dresses?

I had a simple 1 point bustle that came with my gown… I think they call it a shop bustle (my gown was a sample)
this is the train out:
and this is it bustled:
it held the whole night through dancing and etc!
I loved that it connected the skirt to the bow in a subtle way didn’t hide the buttons too much… I think it almost looked like it was just supposed to be that way like no train at all hehe
I hope that helps!

@mchitt329: I like your ballroom bustle, I didn’t know that’s what it was called. Ha!
My dress is almost identical to yours. I love how your dress is bustled. I’ve seen a few other 1 pt over bustles that kind of had little “wings” out to the side. I’m really glad yours doesn’t, and still shows off the buttons.
The only bustle I’d really seen was an under bustle that I thought looked a little weird and bulky. You girls have given me two great options! Thanks so much

Awwe fabulous! SO glad I could help!
My bustle was really cool cuz it was super low maintenance and kinda swung with me when I danced and etc so I really wasn’t worried about people stepping on it or anything.
I too don’t really understand the underbustles…
sometimes things are just better left uncomplicated! haha

@KimmySumShuga: Oh I agree! I like the idea of being able to put it up simply and go. I’ve heard stories of it taking forever to get some dresses bustled up the day of the wedding. Thanks again!

Consult with your seamstress on the bustle–she will help guide you on which bustle will work best with your dress! For reference, I had a french underbustle on my satin trumpet/fit-n-flare, which I loved. The first pic is the full train, second pic is the bustle:
