Black lace, velvet ribbon, and an antique watch dial pin adorn this alluringly stylish black velour camisole with corset style lacing in the front and adjustable. The watch dial pin is removable and was made from an antique watch dial. The cami has no boning and is very comfortable.

Great as either a costume piece or as lingerie.

Size Small (The fabric is stretchy, but this would probably best fit someone with a chest measurement of 32-34).

The corset cami comes with a free black braided choker with metal filigree heart. An artificial pearl hangs from the heart.
