Black and pink trim corset top and skirt constructed from a spongy, polyurethane, spandex, nylon fabric. The fabric does not fray on the cut edge but reveals the flesh pink from the reverse side – the effect utilised to highlight construction seams. The strapless corset has two long ‘wing-like’ pieces that extend from deep side seams and train at the back. The three quarter length skirt is narrow and tapered in shape.
