Friday I had an appointment with a seamstress to discuss my bustle. I had really wanted to try out Mrs. Nachos bustle because my dress has a very simple line and vertical beading on all the seams making a traditional or french bustle take away from the dress and just look odd with the beading (since it interrupted the lines it creates).
Anyway my seamstress LOVED the bustle!!!! She said she’s never seen anything like it and said it would be the perfect option for brides who didn’t want a bunch of crap coming out their butt! She also said she doesn’t see why it couldn’t be done on any dress so ask around if it is something you really want. Then she asked if I minded if she showed this technique to other brides and I kindly handed over Mrs. Nachos post! I hope you don’t mind Mrs. Nachos, but your FAMOUS for you bustle!!! Thanks again for posting all the details.
Here is my dress in case you were wondering (It’s a Galina Signature from DB):
and a link to a close-up of the back and the beading (which runs all the way down)

Guilty Confession: After reading the title of the post but before actually reading the body of the post… I googled “nacho bustle” to see what it looked like! Lesson to me, always read the post or risk feeling silly 😛
That bustle sounds really beautiful for the gown you chose! Koodos to Mrs. Nacho for making the wedding world a happier place with her namesake bustle!

I love it….just saved the link so that I can refer back to it when it is time to get my bustle done. I hate the look of normal bustles! I am going to be a nacho bustle bride!! It is beautiful!

I too LOVE the nacho bustle and want one!
I do have one consideration, though–do you guys think that the dress will get dirtier with this bustle? What I mean is that the bottom of the dress is likely to get some marks from being so close to the ground, and with this bustle, the “bottom” is halfway up the dress/at the base of the train when unbustled. I wonder how this might affect resale, since the purchaser couldn’t just hem up the stained part of the dress?

@FutureMrsBondo: lmao I just googled “nacho bustle” to see what comes up… and this post and her post explanation are the top two hits! I think it is official… no one knows what else it is called so it is officially the “nacho bustle.” 🙂

@huckleberry783: That is a good point. I’m not sure if it is going to get dirtier. We are having a beach wedding so my dress is a little shorter than normal so it doesn’t fall to the ground, but I’ll let you know if it did get super dirty. (I think I’m keeping my dress after tho)
@FutureMrsBondo: haha Classic!
@nachos: Thanks again for writing that super fabulous post!
@CorgiTales: Seriously! My seamstress had no clue what to call it either.

I wish I could have a Nacho Bustle. Unfortunately, my dress is lace and I think it might look weird…
