Chelskii and Laura vintage fitness

[Jump to photo gallery] This was a very enjoyable and productive shoot with the lovely Chelskii and waist.it regular, Laura Toy. The idea was that the girls would use a mixture of corsetry, deportment and exercise to shape and sculpt each other figures into that classic hourglass vintage shape, that we admire so much here […]

Chiara fitness and girdle review

[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 […]

Anise retro fitness shoot

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 […]

Miss Cristal Marie first retro-fitness pin-up shoot

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 […]

Chiara girdle review and Vollers corset

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 […]

Sarah’s third post-pregnancy shoot

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.

Chiara modelling golden American swimsuit

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 […]

Sarah’s first post-pregnancy shoot

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 […]

Chiara 10 years of shooting

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 […]

Chiara girdle review

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 […]

Chiara Maidenform Bonnie Cashin ad project

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 […]

Chiara Tummy-ins project

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 […]

Chiara’s girdle review shoot

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 […]

Chiara and Heather Pink Shoot

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.

Chiara copying a 50’s pose

Chiara attempts to emulate a pose she saw in a photo from the 1950’s. Wearing a variety of long-line bras and tight black pantie-girdles, she manages to add some rather good ideas of her own too.

Chiara tidies the studio – shoot#3

Last of three shoots in September 2006, where I follow Chiara around as she goes about her various chores. Dubbed “t-shirt and girdle” shoots, Chiara wears a tight, figure-forming pantie-girdle as a pair of bum-hugging hot pants. Instead of using my usual studio camera, I used a Panasonic Lumix LX1 point-and shoot. Due to its […]

Chiara gaffer-tape dress

Chiara models ludicrously tight dress made entirely out of silver gaffer tape. Whilst this was not the most comfortable outfit she has ever warn, the gradual wrapping of her body in layers of unyielding tape held in her waist and tummy beautifully, whist enhancing the natural line of her bust. This really was a fabulous […]

Annie and Chiara first retro-fitness shoot

She had never done a retro-fitness shoot before. So being put in front of a mirror in a swimsuit and having her best friend instruct her: “Shoulders back”, “Chest up”, “Bend the leg nearest the camera!”, “Tummy in!”, “Don’t stick your bum out too much” etc. etc, was rather a shock for for poor Annie.

Carrie and Chiara halloween

Yet another shoot in our Halloween series. This time, Chiara is joined again by Carrie. And like the last shoot she appeared  in, we mixed the Halloween theme with some of Chiara’s tummy-trimming trickery. Actually, Carrie seemed delighted try some more of Chiara’s figure control exercises. And Chiara was glad  of a partner to work […]

Chiara

Another shoot with a mixed retro Halloween and fitness theme. Basically Chiara wanted to look as tall and elegant as possible, make her waist look as small as possible and flatten her tummy as much as possible.  And she wanted to do it all with a Halloween theme. Sounds crazy doesn’t it? But it worked!

Carrie and Chiara halloween

Continuing our Halloween theme, today Carrie and Chiara did a fabulous, but unconventional retro fitness and Halloween shoot. Carrie hadn’t shot with waist.it for a while. And she had two babies since her last shoot. We thought it would be fun if Chiara spent some of the shoot helping Carrie get back in shape and […]

Chiara halloween

Today Chiara thought it would be fun to try a Halloween theme. So she put on a simple black nylon-lycra long-sleeved leotard and played with some ideas. Towards the end of the shoot, she added a traditional broomstick and her own latex thigh boots. That was a really good look. We plan to develop the […]

She is also a very good model trainer and it is always fun to watch her getting new girls into shape. […]
