Become a Vintage Pin-Up with What Katie Did






Bernie Dexter images, photos by Levi Dexter, courtesy of What Katie Did,

If vintage-inspired lingerie is your thing, then What Katie Did is a brand you need to know about!  We were incredibly excited to receive our latest shipment from the UK brand, which included bullet bras, girdles, corselettes and corsets!  Many of the images posted above are from the Maitresse group, which is filled with retro goodness and modeled by iconic modern pin-up Bernie Dexter
In researching WKD, we learned that the process of creating a bullet bra takes a specially-skilled seamstress to create the perfectly symmetrical cone stitching.  You can select a bullet bra with or without padding (we took ours with it), and of course you will want to wear the matching girdle and backseam stockings.  Interestingly, we wore a What Katie Did bullet bra for the first time this past weekend and really felt empowered wearing it...we called it our 'secret weapon'!  When worn with a loose-fitting top, the points of the cups weren't that obvious...but when worn with a form-fitting sweater, watch out!
We're expecting a lot of Bettie Page (btw look at her website) fans to pick up this set...especially if you're like us and dressing like her this year for a Halloween party!  
You can purchase What Katie Did lingerie here.

I love the frilly panties, they're impractical for wearing under anything but that just adds to the sexiness!
