i think the one your seamstress did for you is the traditional/american bustle. how long is your train? and how puffy is the skirt? do you mind posting a photo of your dress so that we can give you better suggestions?

i have attached 2 photos of the bustle that i’m thinking to do on my dress. but i think that, in order to do this kind of bustle, the skirt needs to be more puffy and be at least a certain length long.

You are going to have to post a picture of the dress.

But regardless, your seamstree should be able to offer you more than one choice for a bustle.  What you are describing sounds like a modification on the american/overbustle.  She should be able to do a frech/underbustle or a pickup bustle also, if not more options.

It sounds like you need a new seamstress, she should have been able to offer you a french bustle. My dress is all lace, and the woman in the bridal salon showed me it with a french bustle and it looked gorgeous. How long is your train? Mine was pretty long so there was more to work with..

My bustle:

It was a two-point and fastened with a grosgrain ribbon.  My seamstress did that because I wanted an American bustle, but didn’t want visible buttons or snaps.  She just made tiny thread loops that you couldn’t even see, and marked them on the inside with a bead so they were easy to find.
