I remember wearing a girdle in the 1960s as a pre-teen. I absolutely hated it! It was so uncomfortable and finding hosiery long enough for my legs was another issue. Once pantyhose came along, I was so happy to never have to wear another girdle!
Thankfully, today's retro style girdles -- although based on vintage designs -- are made of modern materials that are much more comfortable!
Everything on the What Katie Did shopping site is ultra-retro -- and that's why we love it! This black Maitresse Nouveau Girdlette is not only lovely, but it creates a nice smooth line under skirts and dresses. Pair it with the matching Maitresse Nouveau Bullet Bra for a total 1950s look! And don't forget the black seamed stockings! $$$
This dramatic Yva Black Garter Belt with a touch of red from What Katy Did is a must have! It works with solid black lingerie or make it a set with the fabulous Yva Sling Bra and black seamed stockings with red bands. So hot! $$$
