More Wedding Dress Bustle Ideas!




Even more wedding dress bustles???  Yes, there are at least three more types, in addition to the three I posted yesterday in my blog post, click on the title if you’d like to read it.

The Pick-Up Bustle is for slender, fitted gowns.  The train is much shorter.   There is usually one hook at the back of the gown in the center.  The train is gathered in two sections, and there are two holes at the bottom of the train, which hook onto one button around the bride’s derrière.


The French Pick-Up Bustle is a combination of the french and the pick -up bustles.  It sports one hook underneath the train. The train is then folded in half with the bottom half under the dress.


The American Bustle  is also called the “outer bustle.”.  It has hook and loop sets, or button and loop sets, that are sewn to the outside of the dress.  (


Whichever bustle you choose, be wise and listen to your bridal gown consultant.  He or she will be able to advise you as to which bustle will show you and your gown off to the best advantage.  And there are dresses to choose from that require no bustle, for example a tea length dress.  Would you like more info on them?  Click on the following link, and read my blog post on your options for a shorter, less formal wedding dress.
