For you, this
lovely bustle cage WILL BE MADE NEW from a Laughing Moon bustle
pattern. This is the longer version of the lobster tail bustle cage that
adds the astonishing lovely shaping to the bustle dresses and gowns that
feature trains. A set of stays
are built into the bustle to control the shaping. The stays are
adjusted by loosening or tightening the drawstrings laced in
This bustle undergarment was popular during the "Bustle
Revival Period from 1883 to 1889. The waistline has thin but strong
narrow belting to reduce bulk around the waist. The waistband opens and
closes with industrial hook and bars. This bustle can be custom ordered
in any size from a 22 waist to a 52 waist. Bustles, should be custom
fitted to your size.In the pictures we are showing a bleached white
muslin bustle with hook and bar closures at the waist.The tighter
you pull the drawstring stays, the more curved bustle projection you will have. The looser
the drawstrings are, the less curved projection you will have. If you
remove the drawstring, the bustle becomes flat, with no shaping, and
cannot be worn without the drawstrings.
The bustle is collapsible,
meaning it will fold in like an umbrella while you are sitting. There is
an art to sitting while wearing any bustle. As in the days of old, the
ladies sat near the middle area of chairs, away from the chair backs,
and held very straight posturing. They understood how to gracefully lift
the dresses and bustles at the back to prepare for proper seating.
Since most dresses of those years were longer, they were able to sit as
if they were royalty.
