Beautiful Bustles For Burlesque Babes!
Gorgeous corsets are common in the burlesque world, but the bustle is an often-overlooked costume piece that is just as essential!
The right bustle cinches in your waist that extra bit and rounds out your hips and ass in a dramatic curve that really enhances your sexy shape. Tall or petite, thin or fleshy, a bustle exaggerates your figure and really makes your look stand out onstage!
Plus, they’re quite versatile. Bustles can be worn around the shoulders as an adorable cape and some short bustles can even be turned around and used as a frilly apron.
