The exposition at Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris, department of Fashion and Textile, explores the ‘underworld’ of female and male underwear and other vestimentary devices fashioning the body from XIV century until today. An unusual custom history through about two-hundreds pieces on display as corsets, crinolines, bustles, “faux-cul”, whalebones, hoops and the cushions used to modeling the body, acording to the fashion trends.
