Long Ribbed Bustle
C.1885. A long ribbed bustle made out of black sateen. Four watchspring ribs at the top of the bustle are adjustable with ties on the inside to create a very large jutting out bustle, or loosened for a smaller effect. This style of long bustle was at it's height of popularity during the mid 1880s. Measures approx. 29 1/2" long and has a 28" waist.
