I think an American bustle would look really nice. You’d probably end up with some nice pleating in the back of your dress, which I think would look really beautiful and natural. 

When you go in for alterations, I’d just ask your seamstress to show you the different bustle options. That way, you can see what they all look like and go with the one you like best.

I don’t know if this will help or not, but I tried on a dress at David’s bridal that was satin underneath and had a chiffon overlay. When I asked about bustling, they said what they typically did with that particular dress was to do an underbustle on the satin part and then an American bustle with the chiffon because it looked less bulky that way.
