    Bumster

    März 30th, 2015

    Bumsters, also known as hip-huggers are pants that have a low-rise waist, which sits on the hip bone rather than above it. Bumsters developed in the 1960’s mod subculture and soon after became popular in pop culture and the disco scene before losing popularity in the 1980’s. Alexander McQueen is credited for reviving the Bumster in the 1990’s. Since its revival, the bumster has stayed very popular and has gradually become the most popular waist rise, especially for women.
