Have you ever thought about buying ‘handmade’ under wear?
I didn’t think so. Most of us expect badly put together bras or hugely over priced knickers made from bugger all fabric and bits of itchy lace. Well lets take a fresh look at whats available. Something for all sizes and all prices.

What Katie Did
We create and produce beautifully cut, high-quality and affordable undergarments, corsetry and hosiery inspired by the 1940s and 1950s. Our designs are based on vintage patterns, adapted only slightly for modern figures, using authentic fabrics and even old-fashioned production methods wherever possible. We’re proud of our close-knit team, high standards and enthusiasm for great customer service, all of which which have earned us fans worldwide, and led to What Katie Did being worn by stars as lofty as Claudia Schiffer and Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks. But really, we make our beautiful lingerie for every woman, so she can look and feel like a bombshell, any day of the week.
