(Closed) Help! What to do about my bustle?!

  • poll: What do you think about the bustle?

    It works! Leave it as is and stop worrying.

    It's not the best, but it is passable.

    Change it! (Please post suggestions for how to have it the bustle changed)

    Without seeing a full-length picture of the back of your dress, I do think your bustle is passable and looks good. But I think if you’re not happy with it, then that is what matters most. I actually think a French bustle could look really nice with your dress.

    Agree! I also like the one-point under bustle!

    Honestly I wouldn’t do a 1 point over bustle which is what yours looks like, they tend to break the most. I second the French under bustle. That is what I am doing with mine.

    That is such a pretty dress and they can certainly do a bettter bustle then that. It looks very easy way out like that. It would look great as a several point french bustle from underneath. It may be more money but they should

    I second the 1-point bustle breaking – wow, that’s a lot of dress to hold up on 1 point.

    I would definitely ask about the under bustle and I would have at least 3 points.

    The dress is beautiful on you.  I think the bustle needs to go under instead of on top, that way it will look more fluid and flowing.

    I totally agree w/ summer daisy… I would move to some sort of under busle. it will look more like it belongs w/ the dress rather then an after thought. (which yes we all know it is, but it doesn’t have to look that way. lol)

    Yeah, it does look like wayyy too much dress to hold up with one point. If you want to keep the over bustle, I would have it changed to several points and maybe lower? It is kind of high. I also think it would look good with an under bustle like other people have said.

    I would do the French bustle. I think it looks nicer and it is less likely to break. That is what I did and my train was about the same length as yours!

    Beautiful dress! I would definitely change that bustle! I agree with the others, a under bustle or french bustle would look much better on your dress!!
