In Opatowek, Poland, the Museum of Industry in Opatowek is displaying women's underwear from knickers and corsets of the early 20th century to today's thongs and bras..
The exhibit is called "From Pantaloons to G-Strings."
The exhibit documents how women's underwear evolved as women's role changed.
Did you know that knickers gave way to garters and hose in the 1920's?
The exhibit includes pantaloons, night gowns and corsets.
Nylon rose in popularity in the 1970s, while natural materials like cotton hold sway today.
A few items of male underwear are included as well, like jockey shorts and jock straps, but male underwear has not changed all that much.
I was surprised by this AP article, because I didn't realize female clothing in Poland had evolved in such a similar manner to the way it did here.
