Who's Wearing What

Iconic Lingerie Moments Through The Decades

by Chloe Wilshere, Content Creator

Whether it’s worn for confidence, expression or simply comfort, lingerie plays an important and powerful role in the way we present ourselves to the world.

A good piece of lingerie is a total confidence booster that has the ability to totally transform the appearance of your body through your clothes.

And although in our current day to day we’re all pretty much living in our non-wired bras and favourite sports bra, there is no doubt over the power of a good piece of lingerie.

Lingerie is responsible for some of Hollywood’s greatest on screen moments, red carpet mishaps and iconic runway moments.

So as many of us are currently lounging around in our lingerie (joggers and a bra anyone?) we’ve looked to the past to round up some of our favourite, most stylish lingerie moments through the decades. From Marilyn Monroe’s flashes of underwear in Some Like it Hot to Madonna’s sultry lingerie moments, it doesn’t get much more iconic than these.
