Question Help with my bustle????

Hey guys! Just stopping in to ask a quick question. Basically, I am working on my 1st bustle and I've got quite a bit of it done. It's a swing bustle and, being my first, it's not PERFECT, but it is a nice bustle. My big issue is, it moves around... a lot. it looks and feels like it is going to fall off. So my question is, how should i prevent that? I already have a belt that I use to hold it on and a set of strings that hel keep it straight but nothing I can think of seems to hold it firmly on my body. Thanks for any help!!!!

you have a backboard fastened to a belt ? And it is still moving around ??? It should not move....tighten everything up ?

Maybe post a pic so we can see what you have.

The backboard is not actually connected to the belt. I have a loop of cord that I run the belt through. I'll post a pic here in a little bit. Just remember that it's my 1st bustle so the back has a lot of random strings to hold stuff together. the board is not necessarily pretty! haha

The 1st pic is of my bustle. the 2nd pic is of the back of the back board (touches me) the belt is going through the big strip of cord in the center(Those go through the board and are my primary lace) And the 2 strips on the sides also tie around me.

Also,

I might have gotten it figured out. I added 2 pieces of paracord to the bottom corners to wrap around me which will (in theory) keep it from bouncing up too much. I'll try dancing again with it tomorrow and let you know how it works out! Crossing my fingers!!!

You don't have to quote me each time. Looks O.K. but the tighter it all is together the better. It should fit right in the small of your back , just over your hips. That way the bustle actually kinda sits over your butt. You may have to use a leather belt and you can actually get small screws with nuts and washers to fasten it together. Put the screw heads on the inside where it won't rub you too bad....also you can cover the heads with some small leather pieces glued over them.

A rosette or a center piece may help also.....even a swing bustle shouldn't swing shut !
