    Hi ladies, so I'm going on Friday for my dress fitting and I know nothing about bustles. I know that the seamstress is going to have an opinion on how my dress should be bustled or even if it needs to be, but I'd like to go in there somewhat educated about it. I know that I don't have much of a train on the dress but I feel that it will need to be put up so that I'm not tripping over it all night. Any and all advice would be most welcome.....thanks so much!!!

      i dont know what they call it but i would do it where they pinch the dress and pull it up to a high place and put a button or somthing there, so not under, but over!

      somthing like this

        Gorgeous dress! I agree with nmurch. A simple button to hold it up should look very nice.

          What about a "french bustle"? I found this link with lots of pics of this bustle type. I think one with just two points might look nice...

            Love the dress! They will most likely do an American bustle so the design will show it's basically just pinching it up. french bustle only works for really long trains, if you get a french bustle it will hide the design. I just had a very long talk with alterations about bustles, we have a similar style and that's what she told me.

                  I might do it under , rather than up. If that makes sense..Could it be bustled so you can't tell? So that it still lays flat in the back?
