Undressed: A History of Fashion in Underwear

When: Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Jan. 7, 2018

Discover the fascinating world of underwear design from the 18th century to the present day in Undressed, which takes a serious look at an alluring subject. The exhibition illustrates how undergarments reflect society’s changing ideas about the body, morality, and sex, and the intimate relationship between underwear and fashion and its role in molding the body to an always changing fashionable ideal. Organized into thematic sections that explore such ideas as relaxation, revelation, temptation, transformation, and performance —Undressed looks at how our undergarments shape our bodies, and reveal things about ourselves. Organized by the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
