Discover the fascinating world of underwear design from the eighteenth 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.
