This piece was inspired by a vintage piece from Micheline's personal collection. The lace is made in cotton, custom knitted in America, and features a 1940's inspired spider web motif. The base fabric is a soft yet heavy stretch ponte with a boned bodice with adjustable hooks along the back. The sleeves can be worn up or down and feature a lovely scalloped edge. This piece can be worn with any high waisted item to give you a truly unique look!

This top is so beautiful in person, very comfortable to wear and goes perfectly with the matching skirt. Beautiful and unique. I wore a super push up bustier underneath to give the girls some extra oomph and it was perfect.
Got a large in the bustier and an XL in the skirt, normally I am a Large but my size was sold out. The skirt is a little big in the waist but not noticeable at all and bustier fits perfect no bra needed. Measurements are 39-32-43 So beautiful and comfortable
Didn't sit right/fit flattering.
This top is stunning. I'm very petite and ordered the xs. I don't fill out the bust enough unless I have a bra on underneath though which isn't ideal if I want to wear the straps off the shoulder. I may have to take this to a tailor to have cups sewn in and the straps shortened just a tad. I almost wish the cut was a tad shorter to make it a true crop top. The lace is beautiful though and the bustier itself is structured very well. It feels sturdy and secure while wearing. It pairs beautifully with the matching skirt!
I'm very happy i was able to get this top. Fell for it the moment i saw it. I'm managing to wear it without a bra, i do adjust myself a few times during the day. The top has bra hook like closures and if you use the loosest row the other row of hooks will show. I don't mind that. Top has a bust shape to it so i try not to smash it when i hang it up. The lace detail feels rather sturdy. The shoulder sleeves have some stretch to them as well for wearing off or on the shoulder. I do think its short in length and if your bottoms are low rise the top will let you show some skin
Thrilled with this beautiful garment.
Love the top. I’m usually between a medium and large and I felt more comfortable in the large. Love the off the shoulder sleeves.
Everything I expected it to be. Having a long torso, I wish the bustier was a little longer. Although I have high waisted items that work with it perfectly.
Got the set for a photoshoot and I killed it
Just love this top! The lace is lovely and it's comfy. I wear my strapless underneath it, but it is supportive enough without (I just like the look of it better with the bra). I did find that the boning bows out just a little, so I'm thinking of removing it or putting stiffer boning in its place. I don't really mind though, love the entire set!
My first bustier top & I love it! Never thought I could rock a bustier with my small bust, but I felt & looked incredible in it! Admittedly a little tricky to put on, needed assistance lol but surprisingly comfy to wear, so classy! Such high quality & I love how versatile it is, I'm going get alot of wear out of this beautiful top & set. So happy!
This piece is constructed so well! It's high quality and beautiful. So happy to finally own it!
La femme en noir takes classic goth wear to another level. This top is enchanting I got a size small and it is exactly my measurements. I don’t know how you guys do it but keeping doing it. Thank you for all the amazing quality products ❤️
Fits Amazing, love pairing it with a big belt, nice denim pants and chic shoes!
I was late to this SG party but boy am I glad I bought this set! Surprisingly comfy and at a 30 inch waist, I can still wear a medium as it has stretch! (The skirt) The top is more fitted but I like the option of wearing the sleeves up or down. The bodice is a bit short for me but it works with the skirt perfectly! I’m a 36C (39 inches around) and the medium fit!
I'm not the bustiest of women so normally I size down in tops from La Femme en Noire, I was in two minds whether to size down in this or go for the size I should, and I'm glad I went with a S (rather than size down). As another reviewer says, fastening it up is a bit fiddly with the row of hooks & eyes, and the lace sleeves are large in my shoulders, but the boning feels robust and the top is beautiful & versatile. I can even wear it with vintage jeans
Really well made, fits perfectly and comfortably. I get compliments on it.
I'm a 26 inch waist and 34 B. Fit really well. XS might have been more fitted in bust but then would've been too tight on waist.
I was a bit nervous about this purchase, as I've found the quality of La Femme en Noire and Vixen garments to be a bit hit or miss. This is beautiful, however. The crocheted lace seems substantial, the top was beautifully lined, and the garment seems very well made. My only very small complaint is that to me, bustier implies that there will be some lifting effect on the bust, and while not unflattering, this top didn't really do much to enhance my figure. Overall though, I am very pleased with the top and can't wait to get the matching skirt.
I love this bustier top. I’m a 37 bust and 28 waist, so Iwent with M. It fits very well and looks incredible. After buying the top I had to also get the skirt. They are definitely my favorite items in my closet.
I’m obsessed with this top! It’s admittedly a bit tricky to put on (I fasten it in from of me, then turn it around & put the sleeves on) but it’s incredibly versatile. It looks great on its own, with the matching skirt, or (my personal favorite way to wear it) is with the skirt & black petticoat. No one realizes it’s the same outfit! They always think it’s a dress. The spiderweb lace is every goth girls dream, & it’s divine for summer months. Highly recommend both parts!
I have a small waist but a bigger bust and risked the XS but fits perfectly on the loosest hook for now ( if i stop eating so many cream cakes i may be able to do it up on the tightest ) Very comfy straps on and off the shoulder with good elastic. Love the matching skirt too also in XS.
My current measurements are 43-36-50. I sized down it's perfect and super comfortable
Very fast delivery
Beautiful top with lovely lace. The arms have elastics in them. The top itself is boned, cropped and has adjustable width. It also stretches quite a bit. I wear an xs on the tightest row of hooks. Bust 33", waist 25". I love it! Either paired with the matching skirt or something completely different. I love how it adds gloomy glam to an outfit.
