This beautifully intricate girdle was inspired by a vintage French piece that Katie found in London's Spitalfield's market. Alas, like many vintage pieces the elastic had perished making it unwearable, so we got to work in our atelier to design a new, updated version.

The French fashion industry was not effected so much by rationing during WWII as we were in the UK, which means that their designs were far more detailed than ours in the 1940s and early 1950s.

Like many girdles of the 1940s and 1950s our Bizarre Girdle finishes 2 inches above your natural waist. We've added a little boning at the back of the waist to prevent it from rolling. Another common feature of vintage girdles is concealed spiral steel boning in the tummy panel, another feature we kept, to keep the girdle as period correct as possible.

There is a hook and eye fastening at the front which allows you to easily step into the girdle and do it up without too much wiggling. We have made this girdle true to modern sizing, so expect it to fit in line with our other pieces.

Team with our circle stitch Bizarre Bra to create an authentic looking couture, mid century, lingerie set.

Reviews

  • Had a bonus at work so I ordered the girdle for myself and was not disappointed expensive but such quality, after reading pinup_ granny I went for the size smaller as I wear stockings everyday for work and home I have worn it all day and nearly every day it is so comfortable you forget you have it on perfect.

  • OK, it's expensive, but the quality speaks for itself. As someone who has no love for tights, I am a regular girdle/stocking wearer. This one is very comfortable, even for all day wear (and with my commute and working day, that means 13hr for me!). I'd agree with pinup_granny that it's better to go down a size than up. If I must come up with a minus point it would be that the waist could be more cinching, but perhaps then it wouldn't be as comfortable, so I am happy with it as it is. If you're wavering girls, I'd say treat yourself and you won't regret it!

  • I grew up with girdles and real stockings so this is really memory lane for me. Superb quality and feel, but next time I'll size down. UK size 18 fits loosely on my 34" waist and 37"hip. Size down if you want it tighter over the mommy pouch. The high waist on this model gives good support and prevents muffin spillover.
