Late 18th C. Skirt Supports – Article on Foundations Revealed

I’ve been researching late 18th c. skirt supports — what were called in the period “bums” or “rumps,” and what many costumers call “bumrolls” — for a long time now.  I finally managed to write up my research and to create a bunch of prototype shapes to experiment with the shapes I’ve seen in the era and see how they look on real bodies.  I put this all together into an article for Foundations Revealed, the sister site to Your Wardrobe Unlock’d.  The article just went live this evening — check it out, if you’re a subscriber!
