UNDRESSED: A brief history of underwear sponsored by Revlon and Agent Provocateur is on at the V&A from 16th April 2016-12th March 2017
This exhibition was a revelation to me as a fashion stylist who studied fashion design and also owned a lingerie website “Red Carpet Undies”.
The evolving of underwear design over the centuries,
The relationship of underwear and fashion
how each decade’s morals defined how women and men wore underwear which was cut and fitted to hide, disguise or enhance the parts of the body that were considered fashionable.
My photos below are a selection of those I found most interesting, fun and include the description of what they are.
This dress is from the 1930’s but to me could easily be from the present day. This Alexander Mcqueen dress from 2012 is just beautiful in its intricacy and design
and is reminiscent of 18th Century hooped petticoats

With the publication of the recent feature in Easy Living on my one-2-one lingerie fit sessions, I have been inundated with enquiries. It is so interesting to see how the correct fitting bra can actually change a woman’s life. The most recent example was a client with a very large bust- a problem bust that had been a weighty problem throughout her adult life- to be exact aprroximately a 44F problem – she thought.
The final size we ended up with was 4 back sizes down! Wearing such a substantially smaller back size changed her whole body shape, changed how her clothes looked and reduced her bust shape from unshapely Anne Widdecombe proportions to simply a large bust sitting in the correct place also giving her a midriff and waist.
The bra that created a great look for her was this one by Elila, from RedCarpetUndies
I am always so happy when I literally change someone’s life.
When were you last fitted for your bra? Do you actually wear the correct bra size? Do you have lingerie that may have seen better days? Has your bodyshape changed after pregnancy, diets, menopause or simply just time?!
If so, you may like to read this Easy Living feature in the November issue-(out now) all about my one-2-one lingerie fit service and lingerie drawer weed in the privacy of your own home. Lingerie shopping together with myself or one of my team is another option both from brands I stock on www.Redcarpetundies.com or from any lingerie department store. Proper fitting lingerie will make all the difference to how you look and feel in your clothes.
