lissadiane :  pic? My bustle also used clear buttons and loops (it’s much more secure that hooks) but buttons weren’t noticable unless you really were looking for them, and the loops were on the train (not my butt). Basically buttons were on the dress itself and loops on the train – none of which stood out at all.

That doesn’t sound good :/ can you post a pic? If you can’t redo it any other way I’ll go for what your bridesmaid suggested.

That seems backwards to me.  Usually the button goes on your butt and the loops go on the train.  Im sure you will be able to hide the loops in the lace but if you’re stressed, call your seamstress.

What they did definitely seems weird… But I really just came on to say that you look amazing in your dress!! It fits you so well, and holy hourglass figure batman!

lissadiane :  Oooo I don’t know much about the right size/location of bustles, but just wanted to jump in and say that dress is to die for Bee! You killed it! 🙂 🙂 🙂

jenkat205 – for my bustle, the (clear) button was on my butt and the loops were on the train (hidden underneath so you couldn’t see them when the train was out). This is also how most of my married friend’s bustles were done. I didn’t find the button that obvious and no one really stood close enough to me to see it. Once my dress was bustled it was hidden anyway.

I had a lace dress too and my seamstress said that it was too heavy to use hooks, so I’m guessing it’s the same situation with yours.

That does seem weird.

My bustle had the loop on the lining of the train and a tie inside just below my butt, so the lining of the dress was basically caught and bustled and because the lace over the top was attached, it went with it. I didn’t specify a type of bustle, or get asked for my opinion, but I probably only wore the dress bustled for an hour anyway.

ETA – like this which I reckon you could easily do yourself: https://sewinggarden.wordpress.com/2009/08/26/bustles-for-your-wedding-gown/

My dress is lace and tulle and needed a 7-point bustle with buttons and loops because of the weight of the fabric. I don’t think anyone will notice the buttons or loops.

lissadiane :  The loops and button should both be on the underside of your dress as far as I have been before. I would not be happy with this!

 You look incredible in that dress. It suits you to a tee. As for the button the position, I personally like a French bustle more than an American one. You do not see any buttons or loops on a French one.
