    Has anyone ever used a pin/brooch to bustle their dress for the reception, and if so, did it work?

    I've been considering using a brooch and just pinning it through the layers of my dress to create my bustle, as opposed to creating bustle loops/buttons/hooks, since there isn't really a place to put them on my dress.

    My only concern is that my dress is a heavy satin material. The train is not long, which is helpful because it's not too heavy, but do you think if I pinned it with a brooch that it would hold?

    Any thoughts? Thanks ladies!

      Thats a great idea! I would ask the bridal store to ask if it would hold or if you could try it on the sample. Good luck.

      I definitely don't think it'll hold. I've seen my fair share of bustles, and I've also sewn my fair share of bustles at 10pm when they fall down! Since stiching doesn't even hold them, I really don't thinka broach would be able to. HOWEVER, I think it'd be a great addition to a traditional bustle. And it'd be double protection to keep it up.
      Just make sure it doesn't come unpinned or that would hurt when you sat down!

        Hi Ladies! Thanks for your input! I appreciate it! I think I like the idea of using it as extra support for my bustle. I was only planning to have a one point bustle anyways, because my train really isn't very long.

          Be sooooo careful! The pin definately won't hold the train but further to that, one point bustles are infamous for ripping the dress when you sit down on them! Sit very slowly
