What Katie Did reproduce glamorous designs from the 1950s including spiral stitch bullet bras, suspender belts and seamed stockings, all of which were worn by the actresses in the series to give an authentic 1950s silhouette.
When the TV and movie industry need 1950s inspired lingerie for period shows, What Katie Did is the name they turn to
Annie Robbins from The Bletchley Circle costume department says:
From top to toe, I’m quite specific when it comes to period pieces, right down to the underwear! So for filming The Bletchley Circle we sourced actual vintage 1940s and 50s underwear in order to get the right silhouettes and shapes. Bras and suspenders make the actresses stand and hold themselves in a different way. Until you get that underwear on them, the clothes just don’t look right.”

Their Glamour Bra, worn by Lindsay Lohan, makes an appearance in the forthcoming Elizabeth Taylor biopic ‘Liz and Dick‘, whilst last year they dressed the female cast of ‘My Week With Marilyn‘ including Michelle Williams who’s What Katie Did Harlow Bullet Bra can be seen on screen.
