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!

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

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:
