Oh no, this just leaves me more confused. I never thought to bring pictures to my seamstress - which I will now do, but I still will heavily rely on her advice as to what is best for my dress.

Ok so some of the pics helped but i'm still confussed on which bustle to use because i really don't like the traditional bustle. Pluse i have really nice detailing on my train and it's in color, so i want it all to show... i have seen some pics of a french bustle, anyone have opinions or ideas?

I actually did'nt realize that there are so many types of bustles. The seamstress suggested a bustle and I went with it. She did'nt say what kind though. I have faith in her. She will do the right thing for my dress. I honestly liked the dress better the first time I saw it pinned up.

Funny enough,in my own case, I couldnt find the point where my bustle was supposed to hold. I ended up doing an emergency 3point over bustle with big safety pins, which were part of my emergency kit. It worked, but you can see the pins if you look closely enough at the reception pictures.
