This beautifully intricate girdle was inspired by a vintage French piece that Katie found in London's Spitalfield's market. Alas, like many vintage pieces the elastic had perished making it unwearable, so we got to work in our atelier to design a new, updated version.

The French fashion industry was not effected so much by rationing during WWII as we were in the UK, which means that their designs were far more detailed than ours in the 1940s and early 1950s.

Like many girdles of the 1940s and 1950s our Isabella Girdle finishes 2 inches above your natural waist. We've added a little boning at the back of the waist to prevent it from rolling. Another common feature of vintage girdles is concealed spiral steel boning in the tummy panel, another feature we kept, to keep the girdle as period correct as possible.

There is a hook and eye fastening at the front which allows you to easily step into the girdle and do it up without too much wiggling. We have made this girdle true to modern sizing, so expect it to fit in line with our other pieces.

What Katie Did uses boutique brand sizing. Order your usual pencil skirt/trouser size.

  • I quite love my Isabella Girdle. She makes me feel super sexy! The suspenders were a bit long for my taste so I've altered her a little so the sit flush to her bottom edge. I also experienced a bit of irritation from where the ends of the boning channels rubruby skin , but a bit of fabric tape fixed that right up!
