This isn't going to everybody's cup of tea, but hey — we all have different interests! If your's happens to be the history of underwear then you're in luck, because the V&A are putting on an exhibition of undergarments from the 18th-century to the present day.

'Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear' will include over 200 items of clothing which highlight both the innovations and custom-made luxury of men and women's underwear.

Pieces by current designers will be included, by the likes of Stella McCartney, Paul Smith and Rigby & Peller, alongside home-made items from the 18th-century.
