What Katie Did Vintage Inspired Lingerie

July 26, 2009

Now in case you haven't noticed Miss English Rose is a vintage gal through and through, particularly the 40s and 50s.  I think this is mainly to do with the fact that I do not have a 'modern' body shape.  I am not straight up and down and don't fit very well into high street clothes.  I have a small waist and ample bosoms and hips.  I am a women and very glad of this fact.  However I have many gripes with modern underwear, it never seems to fit all that well and doesn't give the best shape to show of my beautiful vintage clothes.  What Katie Did is my saviour, they produce lingerie based on old 1940s/50s patterns.  They aren't as uncomfortable as the under-wired bras you find everywhere now and give the best shape.  I especially like the bullet bras for that sexy Marilyn Monroe tight sweater look! They also do seamed stockings and gorgeous corsets.  If your in London then definitely pop into the boutique in Portobello Road, its divine and the ladies working there are lovely and know what they're talking about. xxxx
