Vintage Inspired Bras

1940s & 1950s Inspired Bras

While we might be best known for our 1950s style Bullet Bras, at What Katie Did we design glamorous bras for modern girls too in both underwired and soft cup styles.

Our bras might look glamorous, but they are designed to be worn as comfortable and supportive every day bras, so please don't keep yours for 'best!' Beautiful lingerie should be worn every day, it's your little glamorous secret.

Our bras come in cup sizes A-G and you can search for your size in the top menu of our site. For a lot of our lines we use the same peach and black fabrics so you can mix and match between our lingerie ranges to create a look that's perfect for you.

1950s Bras: Getting the Perfect Fit

Although most of us are familiar with band sizes and cup sizes when it comes to bras, just like fashion, there is no standard sizing. Our bra sizing is inline with boutique brands including Agent Provocateur and traditional mainstream brands like Triumph. If you wear bras by Marks and Spencer you might find the bands of our bras a little tighter, or not! If you are new to What Katie Did please watch our Bra Band Sizing video below: you will ned a tape measure and your favourite fitting bra so you can compare the band size of your bra, to ours.

Note: if you are used to wearing DD+ fuller bust brands such as those sold at Bravissimo it is highly likely that you will need to sister size. Modern fuller bust brands tend to use a different sizing method known as 'true size' where the band equals your underbust measurement.

Bullet Bra and Soft Cup Bra fitting

With modern bras we tend to put them on and go, but with bullet bras you will need to lean over and coax your breasts into the end of the cups, and adjust your shoulder straps. Adjusting the shoulder straps can make a huge amount of difference to the fit.
