@beautifulmama28:  I would have the woman at your alterations show you how each would look when bustled and then you’ll know what works best.

My dress they actually did that before ordering for me (because I was debating choping the train off entirely) and they showed how different details would be shown with each bustle. I think that would be the best way for you to decide… see for yourself! 🙂

I think bustles are a personal choice, but also by fabric.  I think on your dress a french bustle would look fantastic with the lace.  I chose a french too, to highlight the dress ruffles.

I agree that you should have your alterations consultant show you how a few different bustles would look – totally preference based! 😀
