What Katie Did “Baby” Corset Review

This entry is a summary of the review video “WKD Baby Corset Review” which you can watch on YouTube here:

Fit, length Front is about 7″ inches long, wasp-waist silhouette. Great for short-waisted ladies. Has enough room in the ribcage and hip areas; very comfortable. Not recommended for people with lower tummy pooch.
Material 3 layers; fashion layer is satin (100% polyester) and the lining and interlining are both 100% cotton twill.
Construction 6 panel pattern with an additional 2 hip gores per side. Top-stitching between panels, external boning channels, and a floating liner (very comfortable). Also has 6 garter tabs.
Binding Black satin bias tape neatly machine stitched on both inside and outside.
Waist tape 1″ wide invisible waist tape between the interlining and lining.
Modesty panel Attached 6″ wide fabric lacing protector on the back; stiffened placket under busk.
Busk Standard flexible busk (1/2″ wide on each side) about 6″ long (3 pins), backed with a 1″ wide stiffener on each side.
Boning 14 steel bones not including busk. 10 spirals (1/4″ wide) in external channels, 4 flats (1/4″ wide) sandwiching the grommets.
Grommets 14 grommets total, size #0 two-part grommets with moderate flange; set equidistantly, no splits, no wear/fraying/pulling out of grommets
Laces Strong nylon braided shoe-lace style laces; they’re thick, they grip well and they are long enough. Has some spring to the lace but very difficult to break.
Price Currently $215.50 USD (at the time I reviewed it it was ~ $190). These prices are from WKD’s website.

Final Thoughts:

This corset is tiny and adorable! The reduction that can be achieved in this corset is amazing – I believe this corset is patterned after their Morticia corset (so imagine that someone took a Morticia underbust and cut it down to a cincher). Since this corset is so short, it doesn’t even touch my hipbones and it barely covers my ribs. Some women who are less than 5 feet tall can wear this corset because it’s so short.

For a long time, the baby corset was the only corset I felt comfortable sleeping in since it doesn’t impair my breathing. I also often wore it like a wide belt over some outfits! However because of my naturally long straight torso, this corset doesn’t give me an extremely streamlined look underneath clothing – my waist tends to look a bit ‘geometric’ (with distinct angles) under fitted shirts. However for someone of an average torso length, this would likely be less of an issue.

To see the Baby cincher and other WKD styles of underbust corsets, do take a peek at the What Katie Did website.

    It sticks out a lot at the hips, despite your wearing it consistently for 1 month. Doesn’t look like it would be easily concealed under clothing (as is recommended on their website). Otherwise, I am interested in this corset…any comments?

      Hi Alexa, the hip spring of the corset is not changed by seasoning – my width of my pelvis is on the average-to-narrow side of the spectrum, and also I was wearing this corset at 24″ (like with all the other WKD underbust corset reviews) so you could compare the shape of the silhouette without having the size/ tightness of the corset affect one’s judgment. I was able to lace the Baby corset smaller than what you see in the video, and doing so would have resulted in the hips of the corset “sticking out” less, but giving more muffin top. This is just how the corset works with my body; others may be much different. Another woman on Youtube has the same corset and it fits her beautifully.

        Thank you for your reply! Now I just need to make a choice between the orchard corset cs-301 and this lovely piece here.

          Hi Alexa,

          if I could go back in time I would have rather ordered this one over the CS301 I currently have, since it isn’t curvy enough for me. I suggest you also check out the Lace Base here on this site to see what would fit your measurements best 🙂
