Voluptuous mannequins employed to promote British underwear

Voluptuous mannequins and inflatable women’s legs have been employed in the design of a new exhibition, opening this week, which aims to rid British underwear of its dowdy image. Created by architectural consultancy Branson Coates, and organised by the British Council, Inside Out opened yesterday at London’s Design Museum and will later embark on an international tour. It will examine the development of underwear dating back to Victorian times, climaxing with today’s ‘intelligent bras’. Video interviews of movers and shakers in the underwear world will accompany the exhibition.
