•  Grand Ladies of the Bustle Era

The bustle arrived while Napoleon III was still Emperor of the French, in 1870. Early bustle dresses would look full when seen from the front or side. Bustles subsided in the middle 1870s when skirts became columns with a train swelling behind from about a little above knee height. Bustles became vestigial, but came roaring back in 1884. Skirts were still narrow when seen from front or back, not wide. Skirts and dresses also had fewer frills and ruffles. The bustle aggressively swept a bit upward. By 1890, the bustle was back to being a vestige and mainly used in evening dresses while skirts were mildly A-lined. This marked the arrival of the Belle Époque.
