Based on the photos… I’m guessing that it is a Sweep Train… the shortest of all lengths (puddling 6 inches onto the floor)
I’m attaching some photos of the sample I tried on – I ordered extra length and I’m hoping the fabric may look better once it’s steamed.
I am confused by this statement…
Do you mean you’ve ordered a longer dress (as you are tall) or do you mean that you’ve ordered a longer train ?
When it comes to trains they come in a variety of lengths & styles.
A Watteau Train is very short & flimsy… and extends from the shoulder (often seen on slinky Destination Wedding Dresses).
Panel Train… similar to a Watteau but extends from the waist as a seperate panel from the dress itself.
A Sweep Train (what your pics seem to be conveying). As I said, just puddles onto the floor… so no real length to it.
A Court Train would be the next length… that would look more like a train you might be used to seeing… extends 3 feet from one’s waistline.
A Chapel Train is the most common length… it extends 5 feet from one’s waistline.
A Cathedral Train comes in at 9 feet (or more) from the waistline. It is often referred to as a Regal or Monarch Train as it is the most popular with Royalty… this is the one that Kate Middleton had on her gown (and of course Princess Di with her iconic dress back in 1981 that had a train that was 25 Feet long)
Knowing all those definitions might be helpful in understanding what is out there, and also communicating with the Bridal Salon what you are looking for.
As it stands now… if you don’t like the way the dress (as photographed) looks, then yes bustling it might help. Just be aware, that as there isn’t a lot to bustle, it will tend to have more of a pick-up / fold-over look to it.
Hope this helps,
