New Blush Satine Waspie by What Katie Did
Cinch your waist for a retro hourglass look with What Katie Did Glamour Nouveau Waspie. This little cincher is inspired by the waspies worn under Christian Dior's New Look gowns to create a smooth and gently cinched in waist.
Powermesh waspies and waist cinchers will not give the dramatic curves of a non stretch steel boned corset as they do contain stretch fabrics. However What Katie Did cinchers and waspies should give a noticeable reduction to the waist.
The look you achieve will depend on your body composition. One of the models delightfully describes herself as a squishy squirrel which means she easily cinches into an hourglass shape. If you do have a lot of muscle around your torso then you won't get such a dramatic result as muscle doesn't squish into shape. When it comes to cinchers, waspies and corsets, 'squishy squirrels' definitely have the advantage!
* 1950s style waspie designed to smooth and add definition to your waist comfortably for a retro hourglass look
* Satin tummy panels with powermesh sides and back
* 6 lightweight spiral steel bones
* Front hook and eye opening for ease of wear
* Note: the original sample which we used for filming had a wrinkly tummy panel. What Katie Did have now bonded a non stretch layer of denier to the satin to ensure a smooth, none wrinkly finish.
