The bustle was incorporated in evening wear and worn by women attending balls, special occasions and other evening events. A jupon underskirt was worn underneath evening gowns. It supported the heavy layers of luxurious fabrics with steel and stiffened flounces. The hemline of the jupon was often made of lace, for added detail and luxury if it was to be revealed.

The bustle came in two styles during the Victorian age. During the era of the second bustle, the color of a women's evening attire was dictated by the function she would attend. For theatre performances and balls, light colored gowns were worn. For dinner or evening dress, jewel colored gowns were worn.

Feel like the bell of the ball, in a fancy bustle gown from Recollections. Made from lavish fabrics of velvet, satin, and taffeta, our fancy bustle gowns are of the highest luxury. The show stopping gowns made in the USA feature voluminous ruching, intricate lacework and short trains.
