Description

Launched in 2008 our Morticia corset quickly became one of What Katie Did's most popular corsets, and now it's had a little nip and tuck to make it even better. We've smoothed off the point at the top between then breasts which some of you found came up a little too high, and have reduced the length in general just a smidge.

The Morticia Nouveau corset is available in 5 shades of heavyweight luxe matt satin.

The sizes below are reduced waist sizes (ie, the corset size when it is closed). You will need to deduct 4-5 inches from your waist to determine your corset size. Please see our Sizing Notes for more information.

These corsets are designed to work hard and reduce your waist by up to 5 inches (12.5 cm). Please deduct 4 to 5 inches (10-12.5 cm) from your normal waist measurement to work out your corset size: a natural waist of 29 inches will give a corset size of 24 inches, whilst a natural waist size of 30 inches will give a corset size of 26 inches.

Measurements:

* length along front busk 11"

* centre back length 14"

* underbust to hip (princess seam) 9.75"

* side length from underarm to waist 5"

To fit full rib and full hip . Measurements when completely closed. We recommend leaving a gap of 3, working down to 2, inches at the back of your corset. The 2-3 inches will have to be added to the rib and hip measurements below depending on the size of the gap you require.

  • Need your lingerie to fit properly? No problems, we have guides to help.

    It's our aim to get you into perfectly fitting lingerie first time around. It would make life a lot easier wouldn't it?

    Luckily most of the What Katie Did lingerie is made from stretchy powermesh which makes it easy to fit. If you are looking at an item which cinches your waist (like our Waist Cinchers or Waspies) you will need to grab a tape measure and check your waist measurement as it needs to fit perfectly to cinch your waist, but with everything else fit is pretty easy.

    If, after reading the notes below, just give us a call and we can help on 03 9448 2324 or email jade@passionatejade.com.

    Please note, unless you are purchasing one of the Waist Cinchers or Waspies our garments will fit a couple of inches either side of the measurements below. For Waist Cinchers and Waspies you need to choose the size closest to your natural waist measurement: if you are between sizes please choose the smaller size.

     Size UK 8 Bust 33"/85cm Waist 23"/58cm Hips 33"/85cm

     Bra Sizing

    You should select your usual bra size when shopping with What Katie Did. 

    Sister Bra Sizing

    If you have purchased a bra and the size isn't quite right, it's easy to work out what's gone wrong and how to find the right size for you. Bra cups are 'cross graded' which means the the same cup is used for several different sizes. If your band is too tight, but the cup fits perfectly, then you need to go up a band size and down a cup size (this will make the band 2" longer, but the cup the same as the first size).

    For example:

    28F has the same cup as a 30E, 32DD, 34D, 36C and 38B

    28FF has the same cup as a 30F, 32E, 34DD, 36D and 38C

    28G has the same cup as a 30FF, 32F, 34E, 36DD and 38D

    Our lingerie is sized either by bra or dress size.

     Lingerie Sizing

    Our lingerie is sized either by bra or dress size.

    Shapewear is designed to smooth and shape the torso, concentrating on the waist and hips. It's important to get these measurements correct when determining your dress size.

    To determine your waist size (1) measure the narrowest part of your torso firmly. Your natural waist might be a lot higher than you imagine and should be several inches smaller than your jean size. Measure your hips (2) at the widest point.

    The Corselette is sized using bra sizes. As both garments cover the body, the body size also needs to be taken into account. The band sizes of these garments roughly fit:

    Band size 32 = dress size 10, 34 = dress size 12, 36 = dress size 14 and 38 = dress size 16 (of course, these are What Katie Did dress sizes which might be a size smaller than what you're used to, see our fitting room page for the measurements of our dress sizes)

    If you wear, for example, a 32D bra but are a dress size 14 you will need to adjust your corselette size so it fits correctly on the body by selecting a 36B (if you go up a band size you need to go down a cup size). 

     Knickers and Suspender Belts

    Our knickers contain powermesh and are stretchy so the waist measurement isn't quite as critical as it is on shapewear. If you're in between sizes go for the size which matches your hip measurement. In general if you are between sizes always go for the larger size in knickers.

    All of our supender belts contain powermesh so they will stretch to fit. They need to sit firmly on the waist so if you are between sizes always to for the the smaller size. 

     Girdles

    You need to take in to account both your waist and hip measurements when selecting a girdle. If you are wearing a girdle that finishes on your waist then it's best to choose the size closest to your waist measurement to avoid a muffin top. If you do have a large waist in comparision to your hips it might be better to go for a longline underbust girdle which will give you a smooth line from underbust to derriere.

    Girdles are designed to flatten your tummy and smooth your hips and derriere. Always step into your girdle.

    Ideal under tight fitting pencil skirts.

    Should It Really Be That Tight?

    The short answer is yes. Corsetry is designed to shape your figure, which means it has to be tight. We’ve tried to make our shapewear as easy to get into as possible, but a few items  need a little wriggle.

    If you do think an item is too small, why not take a breather and try again later? Once you’re in you’ll look spectacular and remember, our shapewear is designed to be comfortable enough to wear all day.
