If your wedding dress has a train, you need a bustle — or you’ll be tripping over fabric instead of the light fantastic. Brides Magazine offers expert advice on bustle styles. The American bustle, aka the Ballroom or Over bustle, uses waistline hooks to lift the train. The elaborate Austrian gathers fabric vertically with ribbons sewn through the gown’s back seam. The French bustle picks up the train and tucks it under the silhouette. Our alterations department can help choose, adjust and fine-tune the best bustle for you.
