Turns out, modern day clothing “enhancers” (such as the Booty Pop) are not all that new! Bum rolls were plump, crescent shaped pillows worn by middle and upper class ladies during the Elizabethan era. These 16th and 17th-century women “styled” them over (sometimes up to three) petticoats, underneath an additional petticoat and a skirt, and wore them in conjunction with an elaborate steel corset. In addition to spreading the skirt evenly, the rolls gave the appearance of wider hips, an on-trend look of the time!
