Not to sound crude or inappropriate… but I have a bustle question. My dress is lace with a lot of detail at the bottom, so they are going to do the bustle over rather than under the dress – not sure exactly what it is called – so that the detail will still show and be even with the rest of the dress. Anyway. So a friend of mine also had this type of bustle and she said that everytime she sees pictures of the back of her dress, she thinks it looks like she’s pooping out her dress. And now that she said that about her own dress, I can’t stop thinking that when I see pictures of dresses bustled that way. Her dress wasn’t lace though – and the bottom of her dress was pretty solid, so maybe it just stood out more, I don’t know. Has anyone else heard this and thought the same then when they see them bustled like that?

There are many different styles of bustles, the best thing to do is to tell the seamstress what you are looking for. Haven’t really heard of that…but I also just may not have seen it in person.
Also…try looking at these threads:
Show me your bustles!

I don’t think I know what you mean? Can you show some pics? I had a bustle for my prom dress ( very formal ) and I loved it.
It looked like this but a different colour:

It depends. I can’t say if it’s good or bad till I see the dress. Any pics?
