Queensland Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum, London (V&A) are revealing fashion’s secret history this summer with Undressed: 350 Years of Underwear in Fashion. The V&A holds one of the most important collections of historical and fashionable dress in the world.

Undressed: 350 Years of Underwear in Fashion features more than 80 highlights from this extensive collection, and is the first time many of these items have ever been on public display.

From the modesty of Queen Victoria’s drawers to the satin revolution of the Wonderbra, the ultimate constriction of iron corsetry through to the avant-garde freedom of Jean Paul Gaultier, Undressed: 350 Years of Underwear in Fashion stands testament to how we have used underwear throughout history to decorate and manipulate our bodies in the quest for the fashionable ideal.

This exhibition is organised by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London
