I don’t have a pic of the back of my own dress, so I borrowed this from another bee (her dress is also beautiful!!).
My hoop is shaped to make the back of my dress do this:
So, while all the skirt is down, it sits beautifully, but how the HECK do you bustle this when there is so much hoop shape at the back? We can’t move the hoop wire up into a bustle, so how does this work?
Any pics greatly welcomed!

Do you need to get the dress altered? Your seamstress will be able to figure out how to bustle it.

Yes, I have a seamstress and she is very good, but she kinda looks to me to make the decisions, and then she does thw work, so I’d like to have a clear idea when I go back to her.
Hoping to see some pics!

Here is a thread with a tulle gown bustled. I’m not sure how long the train in when down, but it looks like she has a hoop under hers.
Hope this helps!
Bustle for a Tulle Dress

My seamstress did a three-point over bustle on my tulle gown. I don’t have any pics though. (sorry)

Ok, so seamstress knows best!
She first did a simple 1 point bustle on the underlayer of satin:
Then she picks up the tulle and makes a tail and creates a silk bow which gets tied:
And here is the final result:
p.s. Igonre the organza covering the top of the dress, it is there to protect the tulle from the beading, it catches!! So the organza stays on until the dress goes on me the day of the wedding 😀
