ooh, I like the double french bustle, but the traditional one might look better after you sit on it. Hard to choose huh? The gown is gorgeous on you!

last one. sorry it''s out of order. it''s the double french done only on one side. if this is the one i go with it will be done on both sides, of course.

aphisiglovessae- thanks!

the only thing is that the traditional surprisingly felt heavy and uncomfortable. it felt like i gained 80 pounds on just my butt. and it looked funny from the side.

I think the double french is very pretty, so it gets my vote.

Oh yes, you did make the right decision with the dress. It''s stunning- you look GORGEROUS!

I''m such a noob with wedding dresses, etc... I''m embarassed to say that I had no idea there were bustle choices out there! I guess that''s why I prefer the traditional one. But then there''s the issue of the "side view".

Let us know what you decide!

definitley the double french.... the traditional looks weird... too much fabric all bunched up underneath.

Pardon the language.

But... HOLY CRAP that looks fabulous! And that bustle!! (The double french. Definitely. The other is just boring and wrong in comparison)

who is that by? And WOW does that look great on YOU!

I didn''t know that had a corset back. But that definitely explains that opulent amazing embroidery. Yum!

yeh, and i don''t know why one would be heavier than the other. it''s the same amount of material! maybe the double french distributes the weight more evenly?
