Hello everyone, I am sure I am not the only one who has noticed this comparison and similarity. In the late 1800's Victorian women used to wear dresses that extended their booty. I've always wondered what was the inspiration behind that since MOST white womens bootys do not curve that way. I've always pondered on whether they were influenced by the curves of an African woman.

Her story roughly coincides with the era when these bustle dresses came into fashion. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saartjie_Baartma...

I cannot see anywhere in history of Europeans extending their bums out before contacts with Africans. Although europeans and africans were in contact with each other 100s of years before the 1800s, it probably took them years of swallowing of pride to admit to them selves that they found this attractive. Here is a website if you dont know what bustle dresses look like or you just want more info. http://www.fashion-era.com/bustles.htm Again I am not saying that this is a complete fact, as I don't know anyone who has written on this subject but to me its common sense. http://www.topix.com/forum/afam/T54T80BE8K9NS6G48
