My dress had a 5ft train of tulle. My seamstress did a custom bustle for me. This is the 9pt bustle.

Be be aware with a heavy train the bustle may break. 4 out of 9 of my bustle loops broke due to the weight of the train and so I used the train look (under the dress) to hold up that side for the rest of the night. Which made for some cute pictures.
