[Jump to photo gallery] Just finished a most enjoyable vintage pinup/fitness shoot with Abbie. It was great that my first shoot of 2015 was with such a super model. Sadly Abbie suffers from a mild form of cerebral palsy. She has difficulty walking in high heels and sometimes has balance issues. So we were a little […]
[Jump to photo gallery] Today we had the pleasure of a day-long pin-up fitness and corsetry shoot with the lovely Eglė. As well as being a good model, she is an entertaining and fun person to work with. She also has a good understanding of the retro/vintage genre. And she has a slim but delightfully […]
[Jump to photo gallery] We would like to introduce the lovely Amy Vitoria. She is a punctual, reliable, and hard-working model, with a professional attitude towards her work. And her pre-shoot communication is excellent. As well as beautiful big brown eyes, thick natural hair and a fabulous figure, she is also a kind, intelligent and […]
[Jump to photo gallery] I had the pleasure of working with Heidi for the first time on a retro-fitness shoot, 2014-09-07. She has a slim but curvy figure which is perfect for vintage work. And her posture is lovely too. She arrived at the studio on the dot, all ready to start work. Apart from […]
[Jump to photo gallery] This was Katy and Momo’s first retro fitness shoot working together. But it worked wonderfully well. They were both new to the retro-fitness genre too. But that did not faze them. In fact they took to it amazingly quickly and they were very keen to learn and try new ideas. Katy […]
[ Jump to photo gallery] The vintage genre is not everybody’s cup of tea. But Lora took to our style of retro-fitness almost immediately. This shoot was somewhat experimental. The idea was to try lots of pin-up style outfits and see which looked best on her. So we put Lora in a variety of retro […]
[Jump to photo gallery] We had a fantastic first shoot with the lovely Kerri_Jayne. Kerri arrived punctually at the studio, almost on the dot of 10:00 UTC and apart from a brief lunch-break, she worked her socks off all day. With her slim-but-curvy figure, cheeky little smile and beautiful blue-green eyes, Kerri is a perfect […]
[Jump to photo gallery]I had the pleasure of working with Lauren for the first time today. Lauren is relatively new to the world of modelling and seemed a little nervous at the start. It was a retro fitness shoot and I think she found the shoot quite demanding too. But she worked very hard and […]
[Jump to photo gallery] I was delighted to book my second retro-fitness shoot with Josie. With her fabulous figure and a smile that lights up the room, Josie is the perfect choice for my type of work. She also brings her own special style and charm to the shoot, that she is able to meld […]
[Jump to photo gallery] Had a fantastic shoot with the fabulous Charlotte. Charlotte is a beautiful and talented young lady who takes her work seriously. In fact she spent quite a lot of time preparing for the shoot, including having her hair done and topping up her perfectly even tan. Her pre-shoot comms were excellent. […]
[Jump to photo gallery] Today we had the honour and privilege of a retro fitness pinup and and corsetry shoot with DMarie9, AKA Donah. We have always found there is something particularly charming and engaging about Filipino models. Perhaps it is the unspoilt, timeless, tropical beauty? Perhaps it is their understated sexiness or their desire […]
[Jump to photo gallery] I had the pleasure of working with Sammy-Clare and her friend Dollybird . Turns out it was their first shoot actually working together. But it worked perfectly. Seems they were both new to the retro fitness genre too. But that did not faze either of them. In fact they took to […]
[Jump to photo gallery] Josie really is in a class of her own and a delight to work with. She is what would have been described in days of old as a “natural beauty”, with big green eyes and a smile that lights up the room. Nice hair, great legs, fabulous figure, tiny little waist, […]
[Jump to photo gallery] Had the pleasure of working with professional fitness instructor AmieJade today. This particular shoot was “retro fitness” and required a fit, attractive, smiley model. She was perfect for the part because in addition to her fabulous figure and highly-developed sense-of-fun, she also has a smile that lights up the room. She […]
[Jump to photo gallery] Today, we had the pleasure of working on a retro fitness shoot with Scottish model and dancer NatalieD. She is a talented, attractive model with a professional attitude towards her work. She also has slim elegant figure, excellent posture and was keen to engage with the retro/pin-up genre – perfect for […]
Had my second shoot with River, and my first shoot of 2014. And what an excellent way to start the year it was too! This time our shoot was predominantly fashion-orientated, with River providing most of the outfits. I must say, her choice of outfits was really superb. In fact, it reminded me of just […]
I had the pleasure of working with Sarah for the first time 2013-11-16. Describing herself as “a dancer who does a bit of modelling”, Sarah is actually one of the best models we have ever worked with. She is stunningly beautiful with a great complexion and a fabulous figure. Even better for our style of […]
[Jump to photo gallery] After quite a long gap we finally got Chiara down for another shoot. And very productive it was too. Firstly we did another “Bonnie Cashin Madenform Girdle” style. Then she did another of her excellent girdle reviews. This time it was a particularly slinky-looking black nylon/Lycra Miraclesuit strapless bodyshaper girdle. Regular […]
[jump to photos] This was our second shoot with Kristina, AKA K_VV. Kristina is an amazing model, attractive patient, witty and keen to try new ideas and always prepared to “go that extra mile” in order to get the perfect shot. The main aim of this shoot was to replicate a series of 1950’s magazine […]
JT Mcqueen, AKA jt_mcq, is a lovely model and a very pleasant person to work with. She has a very bubbly personality and a fabulous figure. Unfortunately her driver/chaperone had a spot of bother finding the studio, so we started rather later than planned. And we had to finish early because her chaperone needed to […]
Had the pleasure of my first shoot with Anise. Despite a 400km round trip, she arrived on-time, well prepared and ready to shoot. Apart from being tall, slim and absolutely stunning, she is also an intelligent, elegant, articulate and highly motivated person, determined to get the best possible images from a shoot. Anise is what […]
We would like to introduce you to the fabulous Miss Vixxen. Her preferred genre is alternative, and her favourite is colour black. In fact, we called this shoot “In Colour” because Miss Vixen is usually only seen wearing black. However, she is also a first class pin-up model too and has a very good understanding […]
This is my first retro-fitness shoot with the lovely Miss Cristal Marie. It was a last-minute shoot organised because I was let down by another model at short notice. Shoot plan had to be hurriedly rewritten and outfits selected. But it all worked out beautifully. She arrived at my studio at 10:00 UTC, all ready […]
Just finished a fabulous, last-minute retro-fitness shoot with the lovely Kristina (aka K_VV on TFPModels). Lithuanian-born Kristina is a lovely person to work with: excellent communications, punctual, well-prepared, friendly, versatile, patient, beautiful and very, very talented. She also took to the retro thing pretty quickly. Can’t wait for the next shoot, scheduled for 2013-05-25 Kristiana’s […]
After a few months away from shooting – largely due to moving to a new studio, we had the pleasure of working with the fabulous HanaMate today. We’re still in the process of sorting through all the pictures and there are still a few more to follow. Hana had never shot retro before. But as […]
Just completed another fabulous shoot with waist.it‘s ubermodel Chiara. Firstly she did one of her visual reviews of a newly designed Beauforme girdle. Then we did a few floor-shots using the girdle and one of her ripped tops. Finally we thought it would be fun to try her old Vollers corset on her – just […]
Just enjoyed a fabulous retro-fitness shoot with talented dancer Fiona and her retro-enthusiast friend Tanya. The idea was to dress the pair of them in 1950’s and 1960’s swimsuits, girdles and corsets and do one of our retro workout sessions, where we concentrate on achieving that perfect retro hourglass shape. For most of the shoot […]
Having just finished a fabulous shoot with Ophelia , I can see why everyone enjoys working with her and speaks so highly of her. Despite a 400km round-trip, a rather hectic start to the shoot and a rush to get her to the station again afterwards, she remained full of life and bubbling with creative […]
I had a super retro-fitness shoot here in sunny Southampton with Francesca today. She is an amazing young lady to work with. Her fabulous figure is matched only by her amazing sense of fun. Francesca is a very talented model with a well toned body and a nice flat tummy. She is also a very […]
Regular readers will know that we have been doing a series of post pregnancy shoots with Sarah since August 2011, to document and encourage her in her getting back into shape process. As you can see, she has done amazingly well and she looks absolutely stunning. 2011-08-29 2011-09-12 2011-09-26 Having already done three shoots, we […]
Just had an absolutely fantastic retro shoot with Fiona. She is a very hard working and talented model and a thoroughly nice person to work with. In fact, she was so keen that she had done her hair and make-up, perfectly, before she arrived at the shoot so that we didn’t waste an time. The […]
This is the third of a series of photo shoots, intended to document Sarah’s progress as she gets back into shape after given birth to two healthy babies. Readers may recall that Sarah ended her second shoot enjoying a deportment session with Chiara. It went really rather well, so we decided to get them together […]
This is the second of a series of photo shoots, intended to document Sarah’s progress as she gets back into shape after given birth to two healthy babies. First part of the shoot was with Sarah on her own, modelling her own tightly-laced corset, teamed up with a pair of snugly fitting black lycra control […]
This is a brief shoot where Chiara models a very stylish Half Moon retro one-piece swimsuit, kindly provided by eBay seller Bella Swimwear USA. Unfortunately, due to bad weather and other pressures, we haven’t been able to shoot outside. We’ll probably do that next spring. Note the “girdle” snaps at the end are unrelated to […]
Just got back in touch with Sarah after four years. Back in 2007 Sarah did a couple of splendid shoots with us. But then things went quiet. Turns out that she has given birth to two happy, healthy babies and is embarking upon a fitness programme to get back into shape. This seems like a […]
I first worked with Chiara way back 2001-06-09. In that time we have done dozens of shoots and taken many thousands of pictures. In that time we have become good fiends and done many projects together. Whilst it has always been brilliant fun, it has also been a lot of work, and poor Chiara has […]
In the tradition of our old Zona project, we asked Chiara to do another modern girdle review shoot. Only this time we decided not merely to photograph the garments, but also to sum up Chiara’s opinions in pictures So here we have two low-cost but nicely-made new black pantie girdles bought via eBay. Girdle 1 […]
Working with Chiara tends to inspire me with strange or surreal ideas. This shoot was based on a 1961 magazine advert for Maidenform girdles. Basically it involved taking two images of the model, one in a girdle and another shot of her wearing the same girdle under her dress. The two images were stitched together […]
The manufacturer’s marketing department must have really racked their brains to come up with the name “Tummy-Ins” to describe a girdle. But the bizarre and slightly surreal packaging was just begging for a Chiara photo-shoot. So we removed the original girl, and put Chiara on a scan of the packet instead. I’m not sure if […]
The concept It is almost a year since Chiara and I worked together. Consequently she is a little out of practice. She also admits to not doing any of her usual tummy exercises for a while and that it is a bit of a struggle for her to keep it tucked in. Now, if this […]
In this solo shoot, Laura models a variety of retro swimwear, evening wear and a tight white pantie-corselet.
Cara Mascara’s first shoot with waist.it, choreographed by Chiara. Cara is a very pretty young lady. With a little help from Chiara, she got the hang of retro very quickly indeed.
This shoot was entirely Heather’s own idea. In this “pink-themed” shoot, Heather teams up with regular waist.it model Chiara. Chiara’s role was to help Heather pose with that classic retro pin-up body shape, so we could capture some authentic-looking retro dressing-room pictures.
Airline hostess, singer and model Heather is a very beautiful and talented young lady. She also has silky blonde hair and a fabulously curvy figure that looks particularly wonderful in good, old-fashioned corsetry and swimwear. We really love this sort of shoot here at waist.it
Chiara is not merely a very talented retro model. She is also my researcher, shoot organiser, model trainer and she organises the studio. Those familiar with this site will know that often when she is sorting out the place or tidying up the studio, she replaces her normal clothes with a t-shirt, bra and pantie […]
Regular model Heather brought her friend Claire along for a shoot, one fine spring day. This was the result.
Regular model Chiara teaches Laura the art of creating that authentic retro body shape. Using Chiara’s tried-and tested methods of good posture and good corsetry, both young ladies go on to create some fantastic imagery. This shoot works particularly well because the models take it in turn to help each other achieve that perfect hourglass […]
Fantastic second retro shoot with the beautiful Laura, featuring old style swimwear and corsetry, with a bit of fitness thrown-in! Laura picked up the retro concept very quickly indeed. The images she helped create are truly reminiscent of a bygone era.
Chiara models for waist.it and guest photographer, Ryan Cleminson. She starts the shoot in business clothes then changes into a retro knitted bikini. Finally she poses in t-shirt, PVC top, long-line strapless bra, and black control briefs worn as tummy-flattening, butt-shaping hot pants.
Fantastic first retro shoot with the beautiful Laura, featuring old style swimwear and corsetry, with a bit of fitness thrown-in! Laura seems to love retro, which is great because she certainly has the perfect figure for it. The images she helped create are truly reminiscent of a bygone era.
