    I don’t know the name of the bustle, but mine tucked under and looked just like the hem of the dress.  It worked well because of the ruffles.

    @ArmyWifey8.23:  Ah that is stunning! I asked my seamstress about doing my bustle like this… she told me that I would ruin my dress because i would get a straight line of dirt on my train (the part that touches the floor). I responded with “well, then it’s a good thing I only need to wear it once!” Haha, how did yours fare?

    @ifoundmyprince:  Thanks! That’s the kinda bustle I want! Hopefully my seamstress will be able to do it 🙂

    I had an underbustle… it just tucked underneath and looked like a regular floor length dress.  13 ties across the bottom.

    @PrincessBride27:  Thank you!  Yeah,  it got dirty but it came out with the cleaning afterwards.  That and the red wine I spilled on myself!  Honestly I wasn’t too worried about it because I wasn’t planning on selling my dress and every other bustle I tried just made me look like I had a huge ruffle butt. So it worked for me!

    I’m having both an under- and over-bustle, under for the actual dress, over for the lace overlay. I actually think I like my dress even better with the bustle!

    I have a large ball gown with a 5-point over bustle. No pictures yet…. Hopefully soon. Have you decided on your bustle ifoundmyprince?
