A french bustle where the fabric is buttoned up underneath, creating a drapey, pillowy look. It's a gorgeous look, but, with my slim-profile dress it made my butt look enormous, so that was out.
The three button, where the fabric is just lifted straight up and buttoned once at your tailbone, and once each just below each butt-cheek. Very pretty as well, but it was too much for my little dress.
In the end I went with a single point bustle. I just had one button that sat right at my tailbone. I thought it worked great with my dress. Only thing was that they had to take some fabric out of the side hem of the dress to get it short enough that the sides didn't drag on the ground when it was bustled (a three-button would have taken care of this without the scissors). It didn't shorten the dress, but rather than having a big circle of fabric for my train, it was more of an oval.
I'll see if I can find a photo or two.
Okay, I don't have a good one with my train down, but here are a couple of shots of it bustled:
(sorry, this one is dark, but maybe you can see)

I had an unconventional bustle so that you could still see the design on my dress ... but I don't know how to explain it or what its called. I will try to find some of my pics that show it. I know I posted them ages ago...
