How to get THAT shape: Petticoats, Crinolines & Bustles

April 28, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 2:45 pm

We will discuss the whats and whys of undergarments: what are the layers needed to get desired fullness under a skirt (petticoats, crinolines, or a bustle cage?) what you should be wearing under your corset, and other practical tips (what order you put these things on and how to use the ladies room once it’s all on.) There is a few comments about how & why these garments evolved the way they did.

NOTE: There will be no nudity involved; this a G-rated panel
