Does anyone know a website that I can go to that shows pictures/instructions on how to bustle a train? I am wanting to purchase a dress off of a used bridal gown store online but not sure what types of bustle would look good with the dress. I of course would have it done by an alterations place but just needed idea to help make my decision. Here is a picture of the dress:

I asked her how it was bustled but she said that she never made alterations to it b/c the wedding never happened. She is just trying to get some money back from the dress. Please Help!

I’m not getting the photo, but any seamstress would know what kinds of bustles she could put in the dress, which would likely hold best, and which would look best. When I went to my alterations seamstress, she had me stand in front of a mirror and she just held up the train in different ways until I generally liked what the bustle would look like.

Ah, it wasn’t a link before. Now that I see it, you probably have a lot of options. Here’s a site that shows a lot of the most popular:
I think the ballroom bustle would look great because it would show off all the detail on the train.
