What Katie Did: Luxury Vintage Lingerie
What Katie Did is the world's leading brand of vintage inspired lingerie. Our retro underwear is inspired by designs from the 1940s and 1950s and the patterns are often adapted from vintage pieces. Our lingerie is sourced by the movie studios to create authentic retro silhouettes. The costume department for Agent Carter turned to What Katie Did for authentic 1940s lingerie selecting our CC09 Bra and Tap Pants, as well as Retro Seamed Stockings for the show.
Our Iconic Bullet Bra
We're most famous for our spiral stitch Bullet Bra, used by movie costumiers world wide to give actresses a 1950s bustline. Our Harlow Bullet Bra was worn by Michelle Williams who played Marilyn Monroe in the film 'My Week With Marilyn'. Our Bullet Bras have also been found in more contemporary settings, with the Maitresse Bullet Bra currently being worn as part of Madonna's Rebel Heart Tour and by performers including Rihanna and Katy Perry.
Glamorous Shapewear and Waist Cinchers
Shapewear is just as essential for achieving that 1950s pin up figure. We were asked to design a unique underbust girdle and longline bra for Oprah Winfrey in the movie 'The Butler'. Our standard range of shapewear includes corselettes, waist cinchers and girdles that will really enhance your curves: just ask Christina Hendricks who has worn our Glamour Merry Widow and Corselette.
Steel Boned Corsets
We have designed an extensive range of steel boned Corsets so whether you're after the dramatic curves of an underbust corset or a sensational overbust corset we'll have one to suit and have recently made corsets for Kate Winslet for the movie 'The Dressmaker'.
Garter Belts and Fully Fashioned Seamed Stockings
No vintage wardrobe is complete without a pair of seamed stockings. We've got genuine Fully Fashioned Stockings made on vintage machinery, contrast seamed stockings and even, hush hush, seamed pantyhose for those of you who want to combine glamour with practicality. Of course we also have a wide range of 6 strap Garter Belts to ensure your stockings stay where you want them to!
