Cinch with our Waspie Waist Cincher

Elevate your vintage-inspired style with our beloved Glamour Waspie Waist Cincher. This enchanting piece has garnered numerous 5-star reviews for good reason – it's the ultimate secret to achieving that retro hourglass allure.

It's a Cinch! Finding your ideal fit is easy! Explore fitting tips below the images. Our friendly team at What Katie Did is here to assist with any sizing queries. Your perfect fit is our priority! 💕

Inspired by the waspies worn beneath Christian Dior's iconic New Look gowns, our waist cincher is designed to sculpt your waistline, creating a smooth and visibly cinched-in silhouette.

Focus on Your Waist: For the perfect fit, pay special attention to your waist measurement. If you're new to our lingerie and shapewear, our sizing page is here to guide you. While we craft our shapewear to be snug, many of our Waspie wearers actually size down – a testament to the dedication of our customers! When measuring your waist, remember to measure tightly, as the garment is meant to be worn snugly.

Exceptional Design: Our little waspie waist cincher is approximately 8” (20.5cm) wide and fully steel-boned for premium support. It features a convenient front hook and eye opening for ease of wear. Please note that it does not include suspenders/garters, as it finishes at mid-hip. Adding straps would result in excessive length and movement, which isn't ideal for keeping your stockings in place.

Premium Materials: Crafted with care, this waspie combines corsetry powermesh, comprising 88% polyamide and 12% spandex, with a luxurious satin tummy panel made of 100% polyester. Rest assured, it's ethically made in our main lingerie factory in India.

Join the ranks of our satisfied customers who have experienced the magic of our Glamour Waspie Waist Cincher. Embrace a touch of vintage elegance, cinch your waist, and step into an era of timeless beauty.

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.
