1870s silk bustle dress is a success due to its reliance on Japonisme in the form of a kimono jacket and underskirt. It is of interest that an actual kimono was incorporated to fashion the dress, rather than the more anticipated use of a kimono as fashionable "at-home" wear. Reproduction underskirt finishes the brightly elegant garment. Monet, Renoir & other Impressionist artists frequently painted their models in kimonos... Kyoto Costume Institute

1870s extant French bodice off ebay. Look how low the bow is on the Basque bodice, right at the lower end. More beautiful tiny pleats and piping w/ a contrasting blue color. And the peplum looks like two large petals.
