Ballgown style bustle bodice in a lightweight cotton. This "off the shoulder" style just screams style when you wear it. The cap sleeves and off the shoulder design is very slimming on any woman.

This listing is for a ballgown style bustle bodice. This is for a BODICE only. Skirts in pictures can be purchased separately. Please inquire.

Bodice is made from a lightweight cotton fabric. It is an off the shoulder style with short puff sleeves and buttons up the front with your choice of covered buttons or metal. Bodice is lined and inner lined with a cotton muslin for ease in wearing. It is not boned but boning can be added for an additional charge. Please email me regarding this if you would like boning. The back of the bodice is pleated to help accommodate your bustle.

This is a very simple style and very flattering. It is generally seen in ballgowns as it is off the shoulder. This is made as a separate so you can put it with one of your own skirts or match it with a simple gored skirt (separate listing) in cotton fabrics. This bodice can be made in other fabrics (satin or taffeta) but there is an additional charge for the change in fabric. Please see separate listing for the satin/taffeta style bodice.

This is an off the shoulder style bodice and will sit right at the cap of your shoulder or off the shoulder. The narrowness of your shoulders and your personal preference will dictate how this sits on your shoulders.

Lead time on this bodice is 10-14 days from order date before shipping. At time of order, please give me your measurements and color preference.

Measurements needed:


I can do plus sizes in this bodice. If your bust/waist measurement is outside a modern size 16 please inquire regarding my plus sizes. There is a small additional charge for plus sizes but can happily do most sizes.
