Discovery Museum have launched a new online exhibition & Victorian underwear film: The Female Form Through Time.

The fascinating online exhibition by Newcastle’s Discovery Museum charts how women’s bodies have been artificially changed from the Victorian period to the early 2000s. The Female Form Through Time offers a fascinating snapshot of women’s fashion through items from the museum's collection - from Victorian crinolines and the liberations of post-World War One through to the power dressing of the 1980s and the shell suits of the 1990s.

The Female Form Through Time is now available to browse using Google Arts and Culture here and has been released to coincide with National Women’s Month. Discover the female silhouette has changed through time, due to changes in fashion and evolving attitudes in society.

The clothing items which are displayed in the exhibition are from Discovery Museum's extensive Costume collection. The exhibition is accompanied by a film on the changing intricacies of Victorian underwear, featuring a boned corset from the 1860s and other items which can be viewed here.

Discovery Museum will reopen at stage three of the government's roadmap (from 17 May) and will confirm opening dates and details nearer the time.
