Details

* 1950s style waspie designed to add definition to your waist comfortably for a retro hourglass look
* Satin tummy panel with powermesh sides and back
* Elastic waist tape to aid cinching
* Hook and eye fastening at front, spiral steel boning
* No suspenders, no loops to attach suspenders
* Made from satin 100% polyester, powermesh 88% polyamide 12% spandex

Cinch your waist for a retro hourglass look with our Glamour Nouveau Waspie. This little cincher is inspired by the waspies worn under Christian Dior's New Look gowns to create a cinched in waist.

Powermesh waspies and waist cinchers will not give the dramatic curves of a non stretch steel boned corset as they do contain stretch fabrics. However our cinchers and waspies should give a noticeable reduction to the waist.

The look you achieve will depend on your body composition. If you are a 'squishy squirrel' as one of our models delightfully describes herself then you will get more of an hourglass shape than if you have a lot of core muscle.

What Katie Did uses boutique brand sizing. Order according to your natural waist, sizing down if between.

Reviews

  • Really nips your waist in and not uncomfortable to wear. I may have to get a second one in a different colour!

  • I LOVE this waspie! I have a 27inch (ish) waist, and bought the US size 6 - it's surprisingly comfortable, and gives me a nice bit of extra shaping help. I can now comfortably wear a couple of my skirts that were just on the 'too small' side, so this was a great investment. It looks and feels sexy when worn with my bullet bra and garter / stockings!

    ,

  • Great effect! I was really surprised that this little thing can make such a difference! I have worn it quite a few times now (even to work because it supports my back!) and especially with my Pinup Couture/Glamour Bunny Capris. I love the feel of this garment <3

  • The waspie is wonderful!!! I've just received it, and this is my first order at What Katie Did; no doubt there'll be many more to come!! I was hesitant to buy it, but believe me, once tou put it on the effect is stunning!!! I ordered one size down for maximum shaping effect (my waist measures 25 inches so I chose size 8, listed as 23 inches). It is true that I'll probably won't wear it on its own but with a girdle, because as I've sized down it sits a bit funny on my hips, but my figure looks truly amazing on it! Give the waspie a try and you won't regret it!

  • So this exceeded my expectations. Im a 29" waist so i bought a 29" waspie. I know you're meant to down size but i didn't want this to make my waist smaller, i just wanted to define it. And it did JUST that. It has taken the strain off my cigarette pants and its SUPER comfy even after the large meal i just ate. Room to breathe and sit. I will be buying more from this company

  • I was dubious about the waspie, and bought it only because of a specific recommendation from Katie's team ... and boy, am I glad I did! It's the perfect busy-day alternative to a corset. It's super comfortable, and because you're aware of it, it helps the posture. I find I have to tweak it a couple times a day, as it can shift a little from sitting to standing, etc. Very happy - thanks!

  • Bought this in peach as an alternative to a corset..... It's a dream to wear. If you need something less restrictive but that still packs a punch this is the beauty for you. Smooth and sexy, wonderful quality.... Worth every penny. Will be buying in black as soon as it's available.

  • Bought this in peach to wear under my wedding dress and it gave me a smooth shape and wasn't too uncomfortable. Would definitely recommend!

    ,

  • Had to do a second review as I am so happy with this item, wore my 50s frock at weekend and it does work so well underneath, i used to be reluctant to try a clincher as I thought it was 'cheating' if you know what I mean but am so glad I've bought this, good investment!

    ,

  • Wore today under a full skirt, works wonders, my waist band on the skirt was too big when wearing the clincher so had to wear a waspie belt!

    ,

  • Pleased with my clincher, comfy, tried it on with a full skirt and a dress and it works well.

    ,

  • If you liked the old Glamour Waspie you'll love this.
    It doesn't ride up and sits much better over your tummy. If you're between sizes then definitely size down. Well worth the money and very comfortable. I wear my waspie every day and am so pleased WKD have revamped this item.

    ,

  • Beautiful and comfortable. Fits exactly to waist measurements described and looks lovely under dresses! I have worn at night time too.
