What Katie Did Spring/Summer 2013

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

When it comes to authentic retro lingerie (by which I mean lingerie that uses a real vintage pattern), I always think of What Katie Did. Founded in 1999, WKD has made its name synonymous with the increasingly popular pinup resurgence and neo-burlesque movements. I feel like I should mention, at least briefly, all their numerous in Vogue and Elle and W magazines, but those don’t really matter to me. What does matter (and what I love) is how What Katie Did is always so consistent, so accessible, and, most of all, so very pretty. What Katie Did bra band sizes range from 30-40 and their¬† cup sizes range from A to G. Corsets are sized 18″ to 34″ (reduced waist) and girdles and garter belts are available in dress sizes 4 to 14. What do you think of What Katie Did’s new range? I’d love to get your opinions in the comments.

    I love the bra in the top photo! It’s headed straight to the top of my list.

    What Katie Did has always made me swoon. I’m in love with that bra in the top photo, and the navy set with the bows down the side. Is that a lingerie set or a bikini?

    I remember reading WKD’s post about figuring out fabric and pattern for those swimsuit bottoms this past late summer/early fall and thinking to myself “Taryn, walk away. You’re going to fall in love.” And boy was I ever right! As a student, I am not always in a financial situation to allow the purchase of items I love at full price but that blue and white swimsuit is something I’m going to start saving my pennies for!

    I remember being at the preview for this, I wish their bullet/cone bras came in my vintage size (34G). I’ve never tried their “regular” bras but I love their corsets and shapewear
