Victorian Bustle Tournure Late 1800's Bustle Dress Costume with Ruffles for Natural form Dresses and More

Sorry, this item has sold.


This Victorian tournure is for light support and shaping. The shaping adds lift, and contours. The contours can make the waist appear smaller, and the hips a little fuller. The tournure can be worn over other hoops and bustle cages to add more shaping definition.

The tournure is custom made to fit your waist size. The ruffling adds the lift and shaping. There are NO hoop steel rows in the tournures. The tournures are ideal for natural form dresses as well as other Victorian dresses and gowns.

The tournure mainstay is made from 100 percent cotton. The 5 rows frothy ruffles are made from sheer organza fabric of medium stiffness. The moderate stiffness adds strength to the ruffling, enabling the ruffling to add lift and shaping. You can sit in a tournure very easily. The tournure folds for storing when not being used.

Your waist size will be needed to construct a tournure to your measurements. The tournure ships within 5 to 7 days after orders are complete. The tournure is offered in white, and can be made in other colors. Comes with a pad that adds more lift when needed. Waist is adjustable for weight ups and downs.
