What Katie Did, a favorite brand for retro-revival lingerie, has just released their first What Katie Did Gold Label range! The luxuriously designed Lily range uses limited edition lace Katie found in Paris last September. Later, when looking through old vintage pieces, they found a late ’40s underwire bra Katie found in Portobello over 10 years ago. The lace on the vintage bra was nearly identical to the new lace they’d purchased! Inspired by the similarities, What Katie Did created the Lily range.
Because of the limited edition lace, the manufacturing was limited to 350 pieces. Being part of the Gold Label, it is slightly more expensive than the standard What Katie Did lines (the bra retails at £44.50). Lily is made from sheer peach organza with a black lace overlay, with a delicate peach ribbon and black lace trim. The bra has a black powermesh panel for fit. What Katie did warns that the sizes are “vintage sized” and may come up rather small, but also says that if you are wearing the correct bra size, you will be okay. You can find the new range on the What Katie Did website.
