Outstanding customer service from WKD! I changed sizes WKD were very fast with exchanging sizes and posting a new one to me!! The girdle fits lovely and I'm very excited to wear it! Thanks WKD will definitely be buying more lingerie from you! I recommend this girdle!!!

I had expected the order to arrive, packaged really nicely, and I wasn't disappointed. The extra effort made in packaging really makes you feel special.
Onto the girdle- I'm not as shapely as many women, I wasn't blessed with voluptuous hips so decided to ignore my waist measurement of 27.5 inches and ordered a 10, in accordance to the hip size (my hips are about 34.5 inches). The fit is rather firm, but I didn't need to exert any effort in getting into the girdle, which makes me think that I could have possibly gotten away with sizing down a little more.
One negative is that it flattens my already lacking bum- but that comes with the territory with girdles!

Before I can tell something about the girdle itself I need to mention the incredible customer service that What Katie Did offers. I was advised on the size and could count on professional service from the very beginning.
When it comes to Dixie-I couldn't be more satisfied with the fit, looks and comfort. The girdle smooths my body beautifully and offers firm foundation for tight fitting clothes. It looks incredible paired with either long or shorter stockings and is truly comfortable.
I must also mention the way it was packed- black tissue paper and lovely ribbon plus a beautiful card. Can one get more spoiled?

It was my very first vintage repro lingerie and I am IN LOVE its fit is amazing. I tried on some 'modern' shape wear and was never satisfied with the fit. I am so glad that I found this website

I ordered a 16, the same as my other old-style WKD girdle, but found it large - probably two inches bigger than the other style, so changed for a 14 which is much better. Worn all day today and found it very comfortable. Only point is that if you are short like me (5' 2'') I found the suspender clips were a little lower down my leg than i would really have liked.
Note from WKD: We are currently in the process of upgrading our sizing across most of our ranges. If you previously had to size up from your usual size at WKD, you will be pleased to know that your usual size will once again be the perfect fit

I have just received this fabulous girdle, so I've only worn it while trying it on, but it really does what it promises!!! It gives a beautiful shape; My hips usually measure 37 inches, while with this beauty they are reduced by one inch. It also seems reasonably comfortable; you do need a bit of a wiggle to get in, but once you do it works its magic!! The sizing is quite accurate too (I ordered size 10 acording to my waist measurement). Thanks, What Katie Did!

I have been bursting to finally buy some real underwear. I'm surprised this site has not worn out with the amount of time I have spent eyeballing all the undergarments and planning what to buy. Well I did it! Finally! I couldn't stand the suspense any more.
Ladies, when your item arrives from WKD, you're in for a real treat.
I was not expecting this girdle, along with two packets of stockings - the first I've ever bought, (can't wait to get those on) to arrive wrapped in black tissue paper and finished off with blue branded ribbon. I seriously took my time opening the package and enjoyed every moment. It took me about an hour. Mainly because I read the brochure and all the care and 'how to' information first. I like to savour things that are worth the wait. ;-)
When I opened up this item, OMG! If I said it was well made, it would be an understatement. This item will certainly do the job. I am 5ft 10" and curvy. I wanted underwear that would work with my 40s & 50s clothing, since that's what my entire wardrobe consists of.
Now I can finally wear my wiggle dresses and know I am well and truly supported. Nothing looks worse than wonderful clothes over poor quality underwear. It's not sexy!
Yes, it requires a bit of wriggle to get in to it, but believe me, once it's on it will not slip or ride up. This baby is staying put.
This is my first purchase from WKD and I can assure you it won't be my last. In fact, in the brochure I soaked up, it said there is a vintage market on a Friday. So... I think I NEED to pay WKD a visit on a Friday (make sure my husband brings a good book - he'll need it because I am not rushing my WKD visit for love or money)and enjoy the sheer luxury and pleasure of buying items every woman wants... Well made, quality and gorgeous underwear.
Oh, and did I mention my husband is a very happy man since my WKD discovery?
Thank you WKD.

Wow this Dixie is the bees knees! Very high quality materials, as are all WKD items I have purchased. Fits so well I don't want to take it off and neither does my other half! Go on ladies treat yourself or even better give a not so subtle hint to your man to buy it for you. Thx so much Katie . M3 xx
