Title
Exhibition - A Brief History of Underwear
Description
Over the centuries, women’s bodies in particular have been manipulated into the fashionable shape by means of the corset, bustle, girdle, brassiere and crinoline amongst other shape-changing articles. The underwear’s desired effect also reflected changing cultural and social values, attitudes to morality, sex and gender. This exhibition looks at the ways fashion has dictated the fashionable silhouette by the means of underwear.
