I know this is probably a stupid question but how do you bustle up your dress? My seamstress said she is going to bustle it on the outside but what does that mean? Does the train go onto a little hook on the outside? Does that mean when my train is down, you are going to see a little hook on the back of my dress?

@Tswife4ever: so I am not an expert with alterations BUT, my seamstress did a hook on the back of my dress and was able to hide it where my corset back is. They can get pretty crafty if you want the hook hidden. The hooks are super small too. I actually have 3 in the back (all hidden) but 9 underneath because I thought it looked better bustled under the dress. I wish I had photos to explain.
This isn’t my dress but I thought it was a good example of the difference in looks:
On me, the bustle on the outside of the dress added to volume to my rear end.

I have 3 hooks on the back of my dress but they are hidden in the lace so they’re not noticeable. She’ll find a good place for them.
