From what I understand there are several ways to bustle every dress. All a bustle does is gather the dress so there should be options. I don’t think your bustle looks bad. I could see that you may want something more seamless though. Google bustle styles and you should get several options.

Your dress is so pretty! I like the bustle, but see if you can try another style like PP said. Just love your dress, bee!

I actually really like that bustle! Still, bustle preferences are very subjective so all that matters is that you like it.

I think it looks gorgeous!  Ask her if she could try doing a two-tiered French bustle. I say two because the train looks quite long.  Although it sounds like she has been doing the bustle this particular way and doesn’t feel like experimenting.  But you can always ask!  If the bustle is finished, though, she may make you pay for both.

I don’t like this bustle either, with that hump. But gorgeous dress though! You look amazing pre-bustling.

How does it look if you just hook it up in the middle not using the side buttons? Maybe a bustle where the train is significantly shortened but still has a little bit of flow on the ground in the back would look much better and still be easy to move around in?

I’ve never seen a bustle I liked until now, that is really cute.

I think a simple one point bustle might suit better?

Here’s some examples of different style bustles. Actually, I think she did a great job with yours as it doesn’t ruin the line of the sheath, and any higher it would make your rear end look quite wide. Lace is always more difficult as the areas where it can be attached and the weight may make it just fall out. She’s distributed it beautifully and it will make it easier for you to move around all night.
