Vintage Valentine – What Katie Did New Nouveau Pieces

I’d like to start this post with an apology for our most avid of readers. You’ll notice that there has been very little new ‘stuff’ happening on BDZ recently, that’s for two reasons… Firstly, I’m in the process of moving house and secondly (and more excitingly) I’m currently working on developing a very exciting new business venture. I can’t reveal any details yet, but lets just say I’m getting a little more hands on with the fashion this time, eek!

With valentines day rapidly approaching, I thought I’d do a couple of articles wholly dedicated to lingerie and intimates, for in my mind there is no better gift (being a lingerie fanatic of course!). Today’s article is about the absolutely fabulous new pieces unveiled by faux vintage fashion brand What Katie Did.

Glamour Nouveau Bra – £49.50

What Katie Did 1950s Bra Glamour Nouveau L6034

Revisited by the What Katie Did team, the Glamour Nouveau bra has a new and improved shape designed to provide a better fit for larger busts as well as small. This utterly gorgeous satin underwired bra has new vintage stitch detailing on cup and has had the filly lace trims and bow detailing removed in order to ensure a smooth line under clothing. This beautiful piece is available in both black and peach satin, matching the Maitresse, Harlow and Retro ranges. This bra is both alluring, sophisticated and utterly gorgeous – We love!

Maitresse Nouveau 6 Strap Suspender Belt – £37.50

What Katie Did 1950s Suspender Belt 6 Strap Maitresse Nouveau L2120

A best seller since 2004 (I personally own one, and utterly love it!) What Katie Did had a real task on their hands when it came to redesigning the Maitresse Suspender Belt. In this new and improved version WKD have simplified the design and stripped back the frills and bows, meaning it won’t give visible line under clothes. The new version features elegant new geometric satin panels. Made to perfectly match the shape of the maitresse knickers the belt can be worn under or over your knickers without the edge of the belt sneaking over the top or bottom, meaning that only the straps will be visible. For those of you who already know and love the Maitresse the Nouveau is an exciting addition indeed!

Maitresse Nouveau Knickers – £26.50

What Katie Did Maitresse Nouveau Knickers

Last up in the revamped range are the utterly darling Maitresse Nouveau Knickers. Designed to sit high on your waist and gently accentuate your figure, these knickers are sure to be a cute, comfortable and sumptuous addition to your lingerie collection. In this new updated design WKD have moved the seams to back to ensure a smooth line under clothing and a better fit over your derriere. The leg has also been made slightly higher for an even more elegant look, and the height adjusted to perfectly match the Maitreese Nouveau Suspender Belt – creating a very ascetically pleasing look indeed. How gorgeous?!
