Stretch and Ease

Most of our lingerie is made from stretch fabrics so the measurements here are a rough guideline. Our garments will fit a couple of inches either side of the measurements below, especially with larger sizes which do have a lot more stretch.

The measurements for our sizing are for the size they are designed to fit, not the actual garment measurments as ease and negative ease is built into the garments to ensure you can breath!

If you are used to wearing other reproduction vintage brands then our sizing should be inline with them. If you normally wear high street brands you might need to go up one size in our shapewear items which are designed to be worn very tightly.

Waist Cincher & Waspie Sizing

Designed to comfortably cinch your waist. Ensure that the reinforced shaping bands sit on the narrowest point of your waist for maximum sculpting.

Always choose the size closest to your waist measurement. It is possible to go down a size in our waist cinchers and waspies especially if you're used to wearing vintage style shapewear.

Waist Cinchers are great under full skirted 1950s style dresses with nipped in waists.

Corselette & Merry Widow Sizing


Our Corselette and Merry Widows are sized by bra size, but as they shape your whole torso you need to take your dress size into account too.

Band size 32 = dress size UK 10, US 6, 34 = dress size UK 12, US 8, 36 = dress size US 14, US 10 and 38 = US dress size 16, UK 12(of course, these are What Katie Did dress sizes which might be different to what you're used to, see our size chart for the measurements of our dress sizes)

If you wear, for example, a 32D bra but are a dress size UK 14, US 10 you will need to adjust your Corselette/Merry Widow size so it fits correctly on the body by selecting a 36B (if you go up a band size you need to go down a cup size).

Girdle Sizing

You need to take in to account both your waist and hip measurements when selecting a girdle. If you are wearing a girdle that finishes on your waist then it's best to choose the size closest to your waist measurement to avoid a muffin top. If you do have a large waist in comparision to your hips it might be better to go for a longline underbust girdle which will give you a smooth line from underbust to derriere.

Our underbust girdles contain spiral steel boning to ensure they don't roll down.

Girdles are designed to flatten your tummy and smooth your hips and derriere. Always step into your girdle. Ideal under tight fitting pencil skirts.
