Many local bridal shops and wedding dress stores charge as much as $25 per bustle point to alter a Trouwjurk.
Adding a French bustle is usually the most utilized option by brides that want to secure their wedding dress train for the wedding reception.
A French bustle is a “under bustle” where the train of the dress is secured and fastened underneath the wedding dress using many different ribbon ties.
The ribbons used should be strong and there should be enough ribbons or “points” across the wedding dress train to properly hold the gown from different directions.
In order to create a strong, French under bustle, an expert seamstress or wedding dress designer should be sought for a professional bridal fitting. Many wedding dresses look much better with at least 5 bustle points to create a professional and elegant pickup pattern on the wedding dress train.
An “over bustle” design requires buttons that lift the wedding dress train and secure it to to the back of the wedding gown with clear buttons or with metal hooks and eyes.
Many brides accept the recommendation of the Trouwjurk store or tailor that is handling their bridal alterations, only to discover that they do not like the final look of an “over bustle”. This is almost always due to buttons being sewn outside and all over the train of their wedding dress.
Many brides are told to try using hooks and eyes instead of the buttons that are so visible on the outside of their wedding dress train. But again, metal hooks and eyes can actually rip a wedding dress and Touch Of Class Bridal & Alterations recommends not using them.
They can also damage a wedding dress if it is being stored as an heirloom dress, over time, since metal can rust and degrade with oxidation leaving marks on the fabric surrounding the hooks.
Modern brides usually opt for adding a French “under bustle” to their wedding wedding dress, once they actually visit a seamstress that gives them ALL their options.

A talented seamstress will always show a bride exactly “how” an under bustle looks compared to an over bustle.
One reason many tailors and bridal shops still recommend using metal hooks, is due to it’s less complex nature…
It certainly is easier to attach hooks than turn a wedding dress inside out… and then sew multiple bustle points inside with ribbons, which requires an industrial sewing machine for tight bustle points.
