It looks like there are certain points where the lace and tulle seem to flow from the back of the dress naturally…it may be pretty to mirror those with a 3-5 point bustle? But I agree, an American wouldn’t look right. Whatever you decide, gorgeous dress!

I have a similar dress and ended up with a 3 point bustle. I’m not 100% happy but its better than carrying the train around all night

Take it to a good seamstress and ask 🙂 I had a weird asymmetrical multi-layered dress and I had no clue what to do… I took it to the seamstress and she had the exact right answer (that wasn’t any of the “typical” bustles, it was just what worked for my dress)

You should let the seamstress try different options, you’ll be surprised you might like something you werent expecting to like

Your gown is gorgeous!  I agree that asking a seamstress to try out a few bustles is a great idea.  Otherwise, I think a 3 point over bustle (like the pic below) would look stunning!  Good Luck!

I think a 5-point one might work well, though I’m sure your seamstress will know better than I. Usually the outer layer is the one that’s long, and the satin underneath and such doesn’t have to be bustled. Mine didn’t have quite as much fabric but a similar feel; and when it was bustled I was pleased that it wasn’t as ‘fluffy’ as I worried it might be.

I have a tulle dress and I’m having the bottom actually sweep up inside the dress and connect there, because I don’t want to see the train or bustle at all. I don;t know the name of it though, sorry!

I agree with the 3 pt over bustle. However, I would def go to a really good seamstress and see your optionss that you have to choose from!
