Beautifully crafted soft-cup spiral stitch ’50s style bra that is supportive, comfortable, 100% period perfect, and definitely What Katie Did’s signature product.
We decided to update our classic Maitresse Bullet Bra in 2016, so this version has some new vintage detailing including the V shaped elastic at the top of the cups, and cage elastic at the back of the band. Of course, it’s also been re-graded from scratch for an impeccable fit.
Unlike modern bras, which push the breasts inwards and upwards, the Maitresse Nouveau Bullet Bra gently coaxes your breasts into the perfect 1950s conical shape. It’s actually very healthy to wear non-wired, soft cup bras on a day-to-day basis, and our bullet bras are deemed to be so supportive that one customer even wears hers to the gym in lieu of a sports bra. We don’t recommend everyone does the same, of course!
