What Katie Did Sumptuous Vintage Inspired Lingerie Sets

Within the past 6 months I’ve discovered and fallen in love with vintage clothing. I utterly adore the style and glamour of the 1920s to the 1960s; the more genteel society, the clothing and the lingerie. I’ve decided to start swapping out my 21st century wardrobe – consisting of denim jeans, boxy jumpers and hi-top trainers in favour of feminine wiggle dresses and exuberant swing dresses, fine lingerie, retro seamed stockings and heels. How my heart sang when I discovered What Katie Did. Their stunning range of quality faux vintage pieces are to die for! Today, in our first post wholly dedicated to lingerie we’re going to have a look at a couple of the sumptuous lingerie sets from WKD.

Liz Lingerie Set

Liz Lingerie Set in Green
First up is the breathtaking Liz set. Entirely made in the UK in order to mark the company’s 15th anniversary, Liz lingerie is a limited edition set, manufactured in one of the last remaining lingerie factories in England. Inspired by the 1950s, the bra features a lightly padded bottom half of cup with exquisite vintage art deco stitch detailing. Offered with matching high waisted knickers and 6 strap suspender belt, this really is a beautiful set. Available in Gold, Sea Green, Grape, Aqua and Black – there really is a lot of choice and at £97 – £102 is unbelievable value!

Sumptuous and seductive, the Vivienne lace set features sheer grey georgette crêpe and peach fabric, together making a soft yet alluring set. Taking inspiration from the bullet bras of the 40s and 50s the Vivien bra has a slight conical, retro shape. The set includes gorgeous matching suspender belt and sheer french knickers. Other WKD knickers can be purchased to match this set, if french isn’t your preference, for example the Harlow knickers in peach satin would match perfectly.
