We're feeling cultured today - in the mood to visit a museum, in fact. Luckily the Fashion and Textile Museum in London has just the ticket: Undercover, an exhibition devoted to the evolution of lingerie with exhibits ranging from the first ever patented bra dating back to 1915 to the high tech, cellulite-busting knickers of today. The exhibition opens tomorrow and continues until 27 September; more details here.
In the meantime, if all this has inspired you to seek out some lingerie with a vintage feel, check out these retro styles by Princesse Tam-Tam, Aubade, Maidenform and - one of the designers whose pieces you can find in the exhibition - Elle Macpherson.
