I need help! Next tuesday I am taking my dress in to get altered… and I need help with what kind of bustle I need…. (I hate bustles!) I need something that can go with my dress… i don’t want just any bustle. i want the back to look like it’s part of the dress…
The dress is a mermaid. Anyway, heres my train. Do you think I can go without a bustle??

Do you have a side shot? If it’s not too long or in your way you really don’t need to bustle it

Gorgeous dress! (From the back at least!) Love the low V in the back. My dress has that too. 🙂
I definitely don’t think it’s a good idea to go without a bustle. Your dress is likely to get stepped on or torn, or (worse) you or your new husband could trip on it. There are ways to do a nice bustle on an asymmetrical dress. I think there’s at least one pic on this thread:
La Sposa Fanal
And check this out (bees call it the “Nacho bustle” after the bride who showed how to do it):

YOU wont trip on it but your guests WILL step on it if you don’t. I think a french bustle might look really pretty on that dress but in the end it is what you see when you go to the tailor. I thought I wanted one style but once I saw it I realized another was 10000% what I needed!

no i don’t have a pic from the side 🙁
only have a pic from the front when i first tried the dress on. it’s held up by clips in the back.

it’s a very poofy pleated tulle… so a bustle probably needs to be done otherwise it will rip

I’m wondering if it needs a double bustle…had no idea about that until I had my alt appointment and they bustled the underskirt of tulle & satin, and then did a separate bustle for the overskirt. This is super-interesting since it’s asymmetrical. Can’t wait for your update 🙂
