British lingerie brand What Katie Did provided 1950s style lingerie and stockings for new ITV drama The Bletchley Circle.
The label reproduces designs from the 1950s, including spiral stitch bullet bras, suspender beltsand seamed stockings – all of which were reportedly worn by the actresses in the series to give an authentic 1950s silhouette.
The Bletchley Circle costume department’s Annie Robbins said: “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.”
What Katie Did is frequently called on by film and television companies to supply ‘authentic’ vintage reproduction lingerie.
Its Glamour Bra is set to make an appearance on Lindsey Lohan in the forthcoming Elizabeth Taylor biopic ‘Liz and Dick.’
Last year, the label’s products were worn by the female cast of ‘My Week With Marilyn,’ including Michelle Williams, whose What Katie Did Harlow Bullet Bra could be seen on screen.
What Katie Did lingerie is also currently popular with fashion stylists having – this month alone – been worn by Victoria Beckham (Glamour USA), Kristen Stewart (Vogue UK) and Britney Spears (Elle USA).
What Katie Did lingerie is available via the brand’s website and two boutiques (London UK and Hollywood USA). Its pop up boutique at The Goodwood Revival is open from the 14th to 16th September.
