The Museum of Historical Costume

What the eyes cannot see. History of undergarments in XIX century

It is only a half a year of existence of the Fashion History Museum and hundreds of visitors – and even more questions! What interested you the most? Especially what you can’t see and what’s underneath? How was this done, and what about hygiene?

We invite you from November 29 to the new exhibition. This time we will show you “What the eyes cannot see. History of undergarments in XIX century”. The new exhibition deals not only with nineteenth-century underwear and how it shaped the outer garment but also how the clothes were kept clean. There will be exhibits related to personal hygiene, memories of the past and information on how to preserve underwear.
