I’m thinking of a lace dress with a satin underskirt and when the ladies at the store did a pinned bustle on it so I could see, I just really hated it.  Somehow the bunching up of the lace for the bustle reminded me of a tablecloth or an old curtain at my grandma’s or something.  They did a 3-point and 5 point bustle and everytime I got that weird tablecloth feeling.  I didn’t even really like the european bustle either with the lace. 

If I get the dress, I am thinking of doing a flip under bustle, where basically the whole train gets flipped under and attached underneath itself smoothly without bunching.  There’s some pics in this thread:  http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/can-i-see-your-ballroom-bustle

Good luck!

With the fact that your dress drapes in the front too, I’m with  @Jennlee:  – do the flip bustle.

Beautiful dress! I also agree with the flip bustle. 🙂
