I did a French bustle (something like 13 points…)

Not every dress can be bustled any way. On many, the fabric is too heavy for an American bustle and some bustles need to accommodate certain design elements. Your salon and/or seamstress/alterations person should be able to tell you all your options and mock them up for you.

Also, the number of points depends on the dress as well and will vary depending on fabric weight, train length, your height… all sorts of things.

My dress is having a french bustle.  If I did the american all the detail would have been covered up.

@MrsRayner:  Aw, thanks! I have mixed emotions (and get mixed reactions from other) about it. Some people love it and others hate it.  Good thing it’s detachable! lol

I want to try out doing a side bustle. My dress gathers to one side of my waist with ruching in the front, and I don’t want a bump on my behind. Not sure if this will work well or not, but I want to pin it up at least.

(This isn’t me, just an example of a side bustle.)

I am doing an Italian Bustle where the train goes up inside the dress, so it won’t look like a bustle at all.
