I really don’t know. I was told to hang my dress (unbustled) and out of the bag. My dress was a different material though. I didn’t have a “safe” place to hang my dress at home so I stored it at my MOH’s house. Its too bad you don’t have a safe place to take it. Sorry, I guess I’m no help.

Hey! i just got back from picking up my dress at the alterations place. they told me DO NOT hang it while bustled. something about making the dress to heavy..i didnt listen fully but i got the DO NOT hang while bustled part and that was enough for me. but i dont know for sure

i just read this somewhere

“In order to protect the gown best, do not bustle gowns. roll the train up in acid-free tissue. The train then sits at the bottom of the bag, which helps reduce any strain on the gown from the weight of the train.”

i would leave it in the bag and just carefully place the train in a way it wont get wrinkled
