Vintage Shapewear

Vintage shapewear has particular association with the Victorian era. It was a high fashion statement to make your waistline very tiny with the aid of a corset. Nowadays we have developed shapewear it to give it a modern twist, with clever elasticated fabrics. However these fabrics were not available in the Victorian era, and they relied on more rigid shapes with structural boning to craft their silhouette into the desires shape. We of course now realise that pulling the waist into such a tiny shape is unhealthy for the body, and so we have adapted our modern day vintage style shapewear to be much safer. We still adore the style of the Victorian shapewear. It is not only practical but also looks stunning. Leading retro style brand What Katie Did is dedicated to bringing this style back into our modern day lingerie, and offer some fabulous choice of vintage shapewear to choose from, in classic black and peach shades.
