Ive talked to my dress alterations lady, who has said we have two options:
1. Bustle – several different ways are possible, but they are all quite poofy and obvious because there is so much tulle
2. Make the overskirt removable – this will be more expensive, and obviously a completely different look. The overskirt is all attached at the waist. When the overskirt is removed, there is a plain sheath dress underneath. Unfortunately the back of the sheath doesn’t have the lace detailing that the front has – not sure if anyone would notice?

This shows what the sheath dress might look like – though this dress was sizes too big and not altered. Sorry for the poor quality shot, it’s the best I’ve got unfortunately.

Well I don’t like bustles at all , for any dress , so I am biassed. But the overskirt idea looks great .

I don’t like bustled at all. The overskirt sounds gorgeous.

Personally I don’t like bustles, so as long as you like the look of a sheath dress, I’d go for the removable overskirt.

weddingnewbie23 : bustles are really about functionality – they’re something you generally just accept doing because you have to. if you have the option of an overskirt, i’d do it. i’m actually suprised that your skirt isn’t detachable already – becuase it LOOKS like a dress with a detachable skirt. since you have the “separate skirt” look anyway, you might as well just make it official.
