Lingerie and stockings with stitching in classic vintage style from What Katie Did

What Katie Did is a British lingerie brand that creates exceptional lingerie as well as nylon stockings with stitching in a classic, elegant vintage style. What Katie Did was founded in 1999 by Katie, who has always had a penchant for vintage lingerie and specially sewn stockings. Back in the 90s, however, she had a hard time finding socks with nails that she could use for everyday life, and therefore she decided to start her own business. With only £ 100 in her pocket, she opened a website and a small stocking store in Camden, and from there it went quickly. Today, What Katie Did designs both lingerie and stockings, they have three stores in the UK and one store in the US and are sold in over 100 stores, worldwide.

Classic vintage design and modern slow fashion

What Katie Did's designs are inspired by vintage designs and original vintage lingerie from Katie's personal collection and her staff's personal collection. They have even received original vintage lingerie from some of their customers that they have designed from. This gives their different types of vintage underwear a very authentic look, ranging from French knickers in 1940s style over torpedo bras to classic corsets with metal struts.
What Katie Did is a slow fashion brand because they care about both the quality of their products and the quality of the workforce that produces them. Their clothes are produced in a small factory in India and they have a close collaboration with and relationship with both owners and seamstresses that they have known for several years. The close collaboration means a lot to Katie, and she visits the factory several times a year.

Elegant hip holders, girdles and 'waist cinchers' from What Katie Did
Hip holders are made of satin of really good quality. They sit comfortably, shape the figure easily and can be worn both on the outside and inside your panties, depending on what look you want and what occasion you wear the hip holder. Their hip holders sit at the waist, close with hooks on the back and have 6 to 8 straps to attach socks / stockings, so they sit properly and neither the hip holder nor the socks fall down!
Girdles from What Katie Did are made in classic vintage style in a mix of powermesh and satin that gives a very elegant look! Their girdles shape the abdomen, hips and buttocks and make them perfect to wear under body-hugging pencil dresses and pencil skirts.
Waist cinchers from What Katie Did are their bid for elegant shapewear! The waist cincher is made of powermesh and satin and shapes the torso so that the waist is defined and the silhouette in the upper body appears narrower. In addition, it has detachable straps for your socks / stockings. It is the perfect piece of vintage shapewear for all your waist-cut vintage dresses - and it even helps to give a nice attitude, because it has built-in stiffeners!

Socks with stitching in authentic vintage style from What Katie Did

What Katie Did is one of the world's leading manufacturers of seamed stockings and pantyhose in authentic vintage style. All their stockings and tights are 'fully fashioned', which means that the nylon fabric is knitted flat and gathered in a seam on the back of the stocking that ends in a reinforced heel. What Katie Did's stockings with seams are known, among other things, for coming in several different colors, and in Mondo Kaos do we have their stockings with blue, green, pink and red seams, in addition to the classic ones in black and champagne/nude. Socks with studs give your look the last elegant vintage glam, and it looks especially nice to wear a pair of socks with colored studs with a bag or other accessories in the same color!

Be aware that What Katie Did's socks do not have silicone straps and that they are intended to be worn with a hip brace!

Their tights have a wide, elastic waist piece and reinforced crotch and heel, which gives a great fit and really good comfort. We have the tights in champagne with champagne-colored stitching, in champagne with black stitching and in black with black stitching, three classic color combinations that you can use for all your vintage outfits, whether you go for an authentic vintage look or you want to add to your modern outfit a touch of the elegance of the past and discreet sex appeal!
