The Collection

The collection spans from 18th century through to 1970 embodying all types of women’s, men’s and children’s underwear. The main focus is the history of the corset with over 300 examples of elegant, practical, medical, doll corsets and salesmen samples. Chemises, bloomers, petticoats, corset covers, bust bodices, falsies, brassieres, panties, knickers, sleepwear, lingerie, bustles, crinolines, ephemera, and advertising displays also add greatly to this vast and unique collection.
