I’m tagging this to see.  I have to decide how I want mine done and I haven’t seen anything that I like to far.

I don’t have a good picture of my dress from behind while bustled, but I did what the last one on this site is, the flip under….so it just looked like it was slightly bubbled, no fabric hanging off my butt (I despise bustles too!)

@TwoStatesBride:  I actually plan to have a bustle like the one on the left in that picture ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, assuming it can be done on my dress with its lace/beading/weight. I don’t know how these kinds of things work!

I had a three-point overbustle that looked like this in the store:

 

Whatever bustle you get, just keep in mind that 1) relying on only one point/button is R-I-S-K-Y! You never know when someone might accidentally land a toe on your skirt and then you try to walk and rrrrrrrrip, your whole train falls down and there’s no fixing it. And 2) try to keep it simple. I had the world’s easiest bustle and it still took my bridesmaids like 15 minutes to do it. That was 15 minutes away from my guests and the fun and everything! And even so, we still screwed it up somehow so I had major butt-bump, haha:

 

It’s definitely not something I lost any sleep over, and I’ve sort of come to love the butt-bump in these pictures, but the lesson stands: if you have one of those really complex bustles with the loops and fasteners and ribbons and if you don’t do them in order everything falls apart … yours might end up looking even worse than mine, haha!

@TwoStatesBride:  My seamstress did miracles with my bustle because my wedding dress is previously worn with stains on the bottom from being stepped-on. I love my train but, won’t be able to wear it down at the reception.

I like the american bustle of the french bustle.  The French bustle reminds me of a dress being caught up in my underwear from just going to the bathroom.

I have a trumpet style dress but not a picture of the bustle yet. The seamstress recommended the one in the left to me even though I don’t love the look of it but the other one looked just as awkward. I have a lace dress with alot of beading but I like the look of the other ones these ladies have!

@TwoStatesBride:  Good luck with it! Since my dress was asymmetrical, that’s the way it looked best. Just make sure you test yours like that at your last fitting…mine was too loose & I ended up with about 10 safety pins around me!

Mine is similar to a couple of the other ladies on here. I was just amazed at how beautiful it turned out! I guess my dress is considered trumpet, fit and flare, but it wasn’t this fitted to begin with I had it altered this way! First pic was from sample dress, posted so you could see the train. The second pic is from my last fitting with the bustle! I loved it! I’m not really sure what it was called though but here it is:
