I like the first one out of all of those…I don’t know much about bustles though. Good luck finding a style that suits you!

I actually really like what you did.  The last picture is great because it really shows the beading/detailing in the train.  The one I did for my train is similar, because it bustles only once, but then has snaps to hold up the sides, displaying the beading work in the back.  I’ll see if I can get a photo when I go back in for my final fitting. 🙂

ETA: It’s a gorgeous dress!

I like the position on the last picture b/c it’s placed under the first fold that is, ahem, on your bum. The first pic it looks too high and doesn’t do anything to enhance all the folds. Beautiful dress!

You’re dress is so pretty! I really like the back. As for the bustle, I think the last picture looks best. The first bustle totally hides the fun detailing, whereas the 2nd one will give full display of the folds while still serving it’s purpose.

There is a type of bustle… I think one of the bees is getting one… where there are multiple points of bustle.  I’m going to see if I can find you a picture.  Be(e) right back!

Here is the one I was thinking of (1st picture of the series).  You could bustle it with multiple points underneath one of the poufs.

I think the bustle looks nice how you’ve done it! Beautiful dress, btw. You might do a bustle with more than 1 point though, to echo the pickups on your dress…but not too many points or you will obscure the beading (and on your wedding day, when your bustle will inevitably cause some sort of headache, it will be easier to have fewer points).
