Happy Saturday Bees!
I have been thinking lately about how i’m going to bustle my dress. Honnestly, I don’t know much about the different types of bustles and how they work. As you can see, I do have a veiled piece attached to the top of my bodice, so I was thinking I would exclude that from the bustle.
any suggestions for the best type of bustle for my dress?
Do you have pictures of your own bustles?

I think a french under-bustle or an american over-bustle (esp since you have the veil piece) would both look nice! Beautiful dress! Vera Wang?
Edit: I think with the french bustle you can even do multiple under bustles! Kind of looks like steps? I think it would complement those ribbon pleats in the back 🙂 Hopefully someone chimes in with a photo!

Hello! I know this post was from awhile ago but I have the same dress (ivory with blush sash). Did you decide how to bustle it? I was thinking French but wish that it came bustled the same way it was in the store I tried it on in! I can’t remember exactly how it was done but similar to French.

@Lnronk: Hey there! No I haven’t decided yet, I’m going in for my first fitting/alterations on August 23rd. I’ll see what they recommend and I’ll for sure post some pics to show you what the outcome is. Yay dress twin!
