    Ensemble, Mme. Uoll Gross: ca. 1885, American, silk/synthetic/jet/feather. "This dress was designed to be worn in an open top carriage which, at the time, was a social event and everyone had to dress the part. The bustle silhouette, although primarily associated with the second half of the 19th century, originated in earlier fashions as a simple bump at the back of the dress, such as with late 17th-early 18th century mantuas and late 18th- early 19th century Empire dresses. The full-blown bustle

Silk Evening Dress, 1885, American, R.H. White & Co. The bustle silhouette, though primarily associated with the 2nd half of the 19th century, originated in earlier fashions as a simple bump, as with late-17th/early-18th century mantuas and late-18th/early-19th century Empire dresses. The full-blown bustle had its first Victorian debut in the late 1860s, starting as a fullness in skirts moving to the rear. This fullness was drawn up in ties to enable walking, which created a fashionable puff.
