The tailored appearance of second bustle period dress can be seen in this photo of princess Hélène. Hélène's dress has incipient leg-o-mutton sleeves and a high collar over a trim military-looking jacket bodice in this photo. This is also a good illustration of second bustle period dress with a tailored appearance as well as the aggressively up-swept bustle.
