1970s Yves Saint Laurent Black Corset Top

Perhaps one of the most iconic of all the YSL pieces, the laced corset top is one of those must have's in your vintage wardrobe. This is the (not so) basic black version. Made of a canvas weight cotton that gives it extra shape, it laces into place at the front as shown. A rounded bust line and peplum effect hip add to the bombshell effect. Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Lined in the same fabric as the exterior and well done enough to the point where if not for the label you could reverse it. Tagged a 44 but these run very small so please check actual measurements.

Note that it is measured with the front edges lined up - you will get more room by creating a space as shown on my mannequin who is closer to a size small rather then a extra small

Bust: 15" flat across from side seam to side seam
Waist: 12" flat across from side seam to side seam
Length: 20" from top of the shoulder to the hem

Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-SML
