All About Bustles: Ballroom Bustle Part II

A few weeks ago we shared a bit about what bustles are and a specific type of bustle called The Ballroom Bustle. A Ballroom Bustle is when you take the train of the dress and you bring it up on the inside of the dress. It is the perfect solution if you don’t want to have the look of bustle folds and pleats on the outside of your gown. This is Part II of the Ballroom Bustle but featuring a simple and elegant style gown. 

When your wedding gown has a Ballgown or A-line silhouette the Ballroom Bustle is a nice solution to accentuate the silhouette. It keeps the focus on the silhouette rather than on the bustle. When you have a sheath silhouette with a train, the Ballroom Bustle is another perfect choice for the simple, elegant essence of this dress. It helps maintain the length and clean appearance of your gown.

Hiding the existence of a bustle, the Ballroom Bustle is the ultimate 2-in-1 solution for your wedding dress. It allows you to flaunt your gorgeous gown with train and all, and then like a new gown, you can delicately pin the train inside to create a dress that is ready to dance the night away.

We recently worked with a bride on Maui, Erica, on her beautiful sheath silhouette wedding gown. There are 29 bustle points that hold up this bustle. You can see in this picture how we fold it inside and create bustle points to support the train. For this exquisite gown it is the perfect solution to secure the train while maintaining the elegance of the gown.  

When choosing your wedding gown, it can be very useful to see how different silhouettes work with different bustles. It helps give you a better idea of what styles you are drawn to. Stay tuned for more bustles from JOA to help you dream-up the perfect wedding gown!
