Bustle Skirts Petticoats & Tutus
Bustle skirts give your booty a "bump," making it look fuller and higher. Bustles became popular in the 1800s, as an unseen support for women's heavy, crinolined skirts. Today, they're simply a fashion statement, and worn as an outer garment. Petticoats and tutus are often confused, but they're actually different. A tutu is a short, stiff skirt that sticks straight out from the waist, ballerina style. A petticoat is longer and has layers of ruffles, meant to be worn under skirts to add fullness. In burlesque today, petticoats are often worn as outer garments for a cute and frilly, girly look.
