Underwear worn by British supermodel Kate Moss, corset worn by American burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese, boxers worn by star footballer David Beckham and drawers worn of Queen Victoria’s mother are some of the exhibits that are on display at the Queensland Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

The exhibition titled “Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear” explores “the intimate relationship between underwear and fashion and its role in moulding the body to a fashionable ideal, with cut, fit, fabric and decoration revealing issues of gender, sex and morality,” reads the mission statement on the museum’s website. Billed as the biggest exhibition of underwear ever to go on display, the exhibition will showcase over 200 pieces of garments representing over 350 years of development and history of underwear fashion.
