The V&A has announced its plans to celebrate the most ubiquitous area of clothing in everyone's home: the underwear drawer. Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear will run from April 2016 to February 2017 and it's set to be a popular affair.

Addressing "the practicalities of underwear and its role in the fashionable wardrobe while highlighting its sensual, sexual appeal," the exhibition will "explore dress reformers and designers such as Paul Poiret, who argued for the beauty of the natural body, as well as entrepreneurs, inventors and innovators who have played a critical role in the development of increasingly more effective and comfortable underwear", according to a press release from the South Kensington museum.
