Bustle circa 1882 ~ I don't care how cool it looks under a skirt (and yes, it really *does* look pretty damn cool), it's essentially just another Victorian torture device for women. On it's own, it looks like freakish ass bones. Wait. Did I really just end this rant with 'ass bones'? Clearly, I need some more training on how to be a proper lady. Time to strap on my bustle... 1880s Fashion, Victorian Clothing, Historical Costume, Historical Dress, Victorian Life, Victorian Dress
