I guess I just haven’t seen many dresses bustled, does this look right? It hasn’t been steamed yet, so maybe it will lay different when it is steamed.
Here is what it looks like without the bustle, just for the heck of it!

There are lots of different bustles that you can have done to your dress. If you don’t like that one then your seamstress can definitely make it a different bustle for you!

@Filly: Totally agree! I think you shoudl try out different bustles, because I don’t think that bustle works for your dress. Its beautiful unbustled! 🙂

It looks like a sad face. 🙁 I’ve never seen a bustle like that before. Will they charge you if you decide to change it?

That is a type of bustle but if you don’t like it they can fix it for you.
I personally would go with another option if you can.

I could be completely wrong, but isn’t this the French Bustle?

It doesn’t look right to me either. Try seeing if they can do an English bustle or an American bustle.

I don’t care for that bustle either and agree with the others – see if they can do something different.
I’ve seen the under bustle (like what you currently have) but the bottom of the dress is level with the rest of the dress at the bottom so that it looks like there is no train at all. I know there is a Bee who had her’s done this way…but I can’t remember who it was.

I’d get it changed if you aren’t happy. Steaming isn’t going to change how it looks very much.

Honestly the french bustle is my least favorite bustle. I think with the V in your gown the pickup/american/english whatever you want to call it would look best. Here is a great reference site I have found…

So I called the dess shop wher I had the alterations done, and the seamstress had already decided it didn’t look right, so went ahead and fixed it, she raised it by a few inches. I am going to go as soon as I can to see how it looks. Here is hoping! I can’t get away easily with my new position in my job to just go into the city and check it out. So it darn well better look better! Thanks Bees for your input!

The underbustle that @milesbella is talking about is the WB-famous Nacho Bustle . You should take a look . it’s very detailed!
