Hi all, I need to decide on a bustle but I’m not sure if I should go for over or under bustle?! I first thought under, then over, and now i’m not sure. I’m putting some pictures of the dress with the different bustles. The first two are under bustle:
And then these are over bustles:
Which do you prefer or think looks best for the dress? The bustle is only pinned in these pictures so hopefully it would look neater once done properly.
Thanks in advance for any comments or advice

My dress had an ‘under’ but in your pics the ‘over’ is stunning, much more dramatic and looks like it would have a lovely swish when you move.

The over bustle looks better to me…

With the lace and the detail, I think the over looks much better. The French bustle makes it look as though it’s just, like, folded up/bunched up. I’d have too much champagne and then try to fix your dress…and it would be awful.

Over for sure. I have a lace dress and it didn’t look right with the underbustle, so I put in a one point over like yours!

With your dress I’d totally go for the over. I really like the way over bustles look… but my dress has stuff on it I didn’t want to cover so I pulled it under.

Oh no, I was leaning towards under bustle but now I’m thinking over!

I agree with PP I usually like under but your dress looks much better as over

over for sure. it looks neater, more classic.

I like the over bustle. But I think it needs to be at least 3 points. The one point just doesn’t look quite right.

I usually am a fan of under, but I think yours looks better over.

I voted for the over bustle. I think it gives a much cleaner look!
