A high quality, handmade victorian bustle, which gives your period gowns the correct shape.
Several extant garments were our guide to draft the pattern for our bustle, and we improved the shape and construction over the course of several years – amongst our customers are several theatres in Europe, which purchased our bustles to use them in their productions!

The bustle is reinforced with six sturdy german flat steel bones, that support even heavy skirts. It is about mid-calf length - perfect for not getting entangled while walking.
It fits best for average skirt lenghts with 95 to 115 cm (42 to 45 inches) - if you need a shorter or a longer bustle, just send us a message, we can adapt the pattern for you.

The bones are flexible enough to easily sit and move, and they will always retain their shape.

For storage and maintaining, the bones can be removed - which is recommendable if you don't need the bustle for a longer time.

A lacing on the inside keeps the bustle in shape - it can be regulated by that in shape and fit to some extend as well.

It is made from durable cotton twill, the matching ruffle from a lighter cotton fabric. The binding is made from satin bias tape. If you search for a white or black bustle – check our other listings!

The bustle is onesize, it is tied with cotton tapes around the waist, which isn't as bulky as a firm waistband, under the gown.

We have other colours listed as well - so you can choose the one you need. If you need a colour that isn't listed, just contact us.

Please allow some time to make your bustle - usually it's one to two weeks until we can ship it. Keep in mind that shipping takes time, too!

If you are searching for a matching petticoat – we have one listed in black and in white as well – in our „Historical Gowns“ section. Feel free to convo us for a set offer.

We can make complete victorian gowns as well – if there's no listings yet, you can always write us a message :)

Absolutely amazing! I ordered a skirt cage to go under my wedding dress. And it’s better than what I wanted! Totally worth the price and such amazing quality! It fits me perfectly, and I am so happy with the results!

Very nice baskets, the structure is light and solid at the same time (enough for my 8kg of skirts!). I recommend!

Perfect, the perfect proportion and so well made. The tulle stops the ribs of the pocket hoops from showing through to whatever you wear overtop of it. Would definitely recommend!
