True Corset

I have recently discovered a truly charming online shop that caters to every glamour gals' love of pretty things~ True Corset!

Based in the UK , True Corset is an online pin up and burlesque inspired boutique that aims to recreate the 1950's retro pin up look with playful yet sexy corsets, stockings, shapewear, knickers and more! Jade and her team are super sweet and helpful.

Their muse, Paulina De La Passionfruit, not only designs some of the most luxurious and delightful corsets, she also is the go to gal for pinup style guidance! She will take you on a coquette like journey through satin, lace, silks and brocades. The site is easy to navigate and contains helpful information such as detailed product descriptions, proper sizing, history of pinups and even a blog.

Although they carry a wide range of delectables and accessories, the show pieces are the corsets themselves. Fastidiously crafted and sumptuous to the touch, it's no wonder many pinups, burlesque performers and all around glamour gals choose them. There is a style and size for all. They are constructed using the finest materials and fitting standards such as proper vintage patterns and classic boning techniques. My favorite are the Dita corsets!



I also adore the frilly knickers! Comfortable and beyond cute, they are a must have. I love mine ;) Here, Bernie Dexter models the pink!


Stop by True Corset and treat yourself!

Thank you Jade! xo

There's nothing better than high-waisted knickers (and if they're frilly, even better!). They are soooo cute and comfortable!

Katie! I love frilly and lacy (not necessarily together) knickers. They remind me of my childhood (of wearing them) but yet them make one's bum looks so pert!

I am confused by TrueCorsets ... all the products are made by What Katie Did, even the pictures are exactly the same ...? http://www.whatkatiedid.com/fes_php/fes_usr_sto_menu.php?fes_pty_pty_id=12&fes_action=DisplayMenu&fes_uid=fes_4b0ee4e8e391f

I love these burlesque corsets.

I went to the True Corsets website. So many gorgeous corsets there.

Some of the corsets on this page look like What Katie Did styles.

All corsets are beautiful.
