The Evolution Of Underwear - Meuseum

I visited a thought provoking exhibition, The Evolution of Underwear at the Fashion and Textile Meuseum in Bermondsey street London. The meuseum is basically a timeline of how womens underwear has changed and evolved over the last 100 years.  It's an exhibition of two levels, at first viewing it is about how underwear has changed, coinsiding with womens body shapes and fashion.  But then looking more closely we begin to see the second layer that it is also an indepth look at how underwear plays a role in the social cultural an economic changes of womens lives throughout the 20th century.
