Bustle.

My dress does not come with a bustle built in. I know that there are a lot of different ways to do it, but I do not know what would look best with my dress. Here is a link to the dress if that helps.

Call me crazy, but I didn't know what a bustle was until you posted your thread. SO I googled it. LOL...and it defined it as an undergarment used to give women hourglass figures. If that's the case, sign me up. Do you have a pic of your bustle? I'm thinking not every style would use a bustle since only 'cascading' gowns popped up when I google imaged the term. If you have a pic, I want to see yours so that I can have a clue. Thanks!

I think with the pick ups in your dress, it will definitely be different than mine. I had a pretty straight forward bustle, I called it the peacock tail:

NO not an undergarment haha. Please do not show me your undergarments. What I mean is a bustle on a gown. When you have a gown with a train, you usually bustle it up so that it does not drag on the ground. I know there are several different ways to do it, but I just don't know what would be best with my dress.

Sorry! Just realized pictures from my kodak gallery don't post. So all they did with mine was pick up the back and make a little button with some loops. There are a couple different kinds of ways to do it. Sometimes the tuck they dress under, which is probably what they'd do for your dress, since it has pick ups. They can try to make the bustle look like part of the dress. Mine was really flowy so pinning it under made it look like it was tucked in my underpants! So we went for the peacock! When you go for your fittings, they'll show you all the options you have.

AmandaLynn - We actually have the same dress!! I didn't have any clue how they were going to bustle it at all and I just let the woman who was doing the alterations bustle it however she wanted. I have to warn you, I ended up with 12 bustles all together. They are ties and not loops so I'm thankful for that. My profile picture is of my bustle, but here's a bigger one for you to see.

ToyToy- you crack me up girlie. You ran away from the May 2010 thread. What happened?

And if you want different bustles you should look at David's Bridal Catalog. Here's the link. It shows a ton of different bustles and how they look on different dresses.

I also had a dress with pick ups, and we were going for a victorian theme, so I had what I belive was called an over bustle to make the big butt look kind of I guess.....Heres a pic l_bb344bbad6814934bc9701cf4bae3724.jpg picture by Nessabear615

It was done with buttons and loops.

BriansAZ! LOL! I didn't run away. Everyone just...well...stopped posting! :D I've still been bouncing around here showing my blonde (aka gray) roots...trying to figure out what a bustle is. HA! Now that I know, I can avoid the humiliation of posting pictures of myself in my wedding undergarments! <---hehehe...I really don't have my undergarments so you guys are safe. Thank you for the link chick. AND WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN MISSY? I haven't seen you on the boards much lately either...

unfortunately when we bought the dress, my sister got a video of me in it but not a still picture. I go for a fitting on Sept. 5th, so I will definately get some good pictures then haha.

I can never remember the names of the different types of bustles, but mine is the kind where there are 3 or 4 sets of ribbons underneath that pull it up from the inside (if that makes sense)
