Sedona Olde Time Photos is constantly adding costumes and props to give customers more choices during their photo sessions. Recently, we have added a couple of Victorian dresses, including a dress with a bustle. To keep it simple and allow the dress to fit many sizes, the skirt and the bodice are split in the back, so they can be tied on, like most of our costumes. The bustle attaches with Velcro to complete the look.

The bustle dress replaced hoop skirts, because they were more practical. Prior to the introduction of bustles, hoop skirts had changed from the full bell shaped skirts to an ellipsoidal shape, where the sides were narrower.
