A good corselette is an essential part of every well stocked lingerie drawer. They instantly smooth out any lumps and bumps giving an extremely smooth line under fitted dresses.
The traditional corselette is a step into and wriggle garment which, as it's a shapewear garment can be a bit of a struggle. Quite honestly I have enough to worry about without battling with my lingerie every morning so decided to have a hook and eye fastening at the front instead. This is one corselette you can put on without breaking into a a sweat!
The hook and eye front closure also allow this corselette to have a higher back. This is important as not only does it mean a better fit for the bra cups, but it also eliminates back fat. Did you know that most of the support from your bra actually comes from the band?
Another unique feature of our Glamour Corselette is the addition of an elastic waist tape that will add a little definition to your waistline. Who says you can't have it all?
Our Glamour Nouveau Corselette is sized by bra size.
Bra sizes roughly co-ordinate with the following dress sizes:
32" - WKD dress size 10
34" - WKD dress size 12
36" - WKD dress size 14
38" - WKD dress size 16
If your bra size does not match your body size you might like to experiment a little and delve into the mysterious world of bra cup grading.
A bra cup size 38B will be the same as a 36C, 34D, 32DD. Hence if you are normally a bra size 34D but a small dress size 10 you might want to try the 32DD corselette which will have the same cup size as a 34D, but will be smaller around the body.
This grading works across all bra sizes so:
Cup size 32F = 34E, 36DD, 38D, and so on.
Like a few of the other ladies, I hesitated before buying this as it's not cheap, but I am so glad I did. Very well made and gives an amazing silhouette. I had to return the first one to get a different size, but a helpful lady was able to explain to me over email which size to go for, based on my description of the fitting problems with the first one. Second one is the correct size and fits like a glove! I am really pleased with the corselette and my better half is also quite taken with it ;-)

Words cannot describe how wonderful this garment is - it creates a beautiful silhouette and is also extremely comfortable.
I also love the fact that due to how fitted it is, stockings stay put and don't fall down as I have found when wearing a regular girdle.
Would recommend to someone new to vintage lingerie as it is a really handy all in one garment.

Just worn my corselette for a whole day, done the school run, hoovered, and done a days work ( stitching) and eaten several big meals and I have to say it is very comfortable, the bra cups fit really well and it gives me a great waist without pinching, need to practice my suspender technique as I struggled a bit with the back ones but I am sure I will get better with practice. I love the colour and design of this well made piece of lingerie!!

I am so glad I finally ordered. I put it off for a while, and I shouldn't have. I had to use sister bra sizes, because I am very pear shaped; but, I am so pleased with my purchase. It fits great. It's very comfortable. I feel beautiful. And, It is very well made. I will be recommending it to my friends.

Just gorgeous!!! I hesitated between 34C and 34D. I already have a corselette 34C and the C is a little bit to small. So I ordered a 34D. But now the D is a little bit to big. Nevertheless I am really happy with this item, it makes me feel so feminine. I only wish there was a "What Katie Did" store in The Netherlands.....

A little nervous to buy without first trying on, but after reading the size instructions got brace enough to order. Oh my goodness, this corselette is divine. And for someone as uncoordinated as myself, was an absolute breeze to put on. Postage to Australia was very fast. I am absolutely delighted!

I was absolutely thrilled when WKD redesigned the Glamour Corselette!
I really like the front closure - when putting on my older version of the Glamour Corselette, I needed my husband to pull up the back as on my own I couldn't get it high enough in the back to feel comfortable!
Plus the cups don't have the old frilly decoration which made my blouse stand off in the front - everything is smooth
I did have to exchange it once because the cups were too small when I ordered the same size I wear with the Glamour Corselette. (I find it very difficult to find the right size for me anyway, all my WKD garments have different sizes and I have two drawers full of their beautiful lingerie!) Do ask the WKD ladies for size advice (and send photos) to help!
Now I've found my fit these are the best pieces you would ever want to wear!

I bought this corselette, but sadly had to return it. It was very beautiful and great quality, but since I have a long torso and a very squishy mid section it wasn't suitable for me. It did give me a tiny waist, which would have worked with swing skirts, but the cup shape just didn't work for me. Luckily the Cabaret Torsolette fit better, because there is no waistband and because it has "boning" all around and not just in the front. I think that gives a better support for squishy squirrels like me.
I have a 28" waist and I'm 172cm tall with a long torso and I tried on a 34B which is apparently equivalent to UK12/27". It would have been the right size if the waistband was wider and/or stronger and if the cups stayed higher :) Seems like I simply have too long back for this, but for shorter people this could work wonders so I'd still recommend this. It was absolutely beautiful!

I just got this corselette and i love it. It's comfortable to wear, does a great job helping define my waist and its less bulky and obtrusive than some of my other underthings. Very satisfied. Buy in confidence!
