Show me your bustled dresses! My consultant had mentioned adding a bustle to my dress when I ordered it but, I'm just not really sure what that would do for the dress. So, I wanted to see what other bustled dresses look like

    Do you have a pic of your dress?

    @JerseyGirl it's an a-line dress so if I could see other bustled a-line dresses it might help me picture what mine might look like

    Mine is a tulle a line and I just had my second dress fitting, this is the bustle my seamstress did. Not a great picture because I only have a screenshot of the video my mom took but I thought it looked nice.

    Here's the back without bustle for reference (I'm not wearing this veil, just one I tried)

    I don't have a picture but I didn't think I wanted one until I tried it on and walked in the dress...the train was to much to hold or let drag around all night

    When I had my alterations she pinned it up and showed me essentially what it would look like with the bustle - not that I have a choice, I have a fairly long train to want to drag it around (outside) all night

    I just ordered my dress so I haven't done mine yet, but I'm following because this is super helpful!

    Unbustled. Ask your seamstress. They'll know what's structurally sound and should show you your options.

    I have my dress fitting in august & they told me they would have to add 13 buttons for mine. Is that extreme? I'm debating on adding one to mine

    My dress was chiffon, I did an American hustle with 3 points. On the left is unbustled, on the right is bustled (before alterations, that's why it's pins and not buttons. Sorry I don't have a pic from after alterations!).

    Here is mine bustled. Your dress really doesn't look like it would drag much so you could probably go either way!

    Without bustle

    With bustle. It's so it's out of the way so you can dance & walk easier.
