What Katie Did vintage lingerie

'What Katie Did' was set up way back at the end of the 20th century as a online stocking retailer, over the years 'What Katie Did' have expanded into lingerie and have built up the biggest collection of faux vintage lingerie hosiery and lingerie in the UK today.

The 'What Katie Did' designs are not simply inspired by the 1940s and 1950s but actually made using vintage patterns adapted for women of today. As far as possible What Katie Did stick to using fabrics and manufacturing which were available at that time, which does causes some merriment at their factories as they are frequently asked questions like: 'are you sure you don't want a nice modern seam in these stockings?'
Lingerie and shapewear played a very big part in fashion in the first half of the 20th century.
Corsets and bustles shaped women in the early 1900s whilst breasts were strapped down in the 1920s.
What Katie Did focuses on the 1940s and 1950s when woman's natural figures were celebrated and breasts and hips were in fashion. Hooray! However, all was not as it seemed as underneath the dresses serious help was at hand.
