Why do French women always look so great? Perhaps it's in the undies. French lingerie has long set the standard for quality undergarments. But there's more to bras and panties than lace and spandex.

And that's exactly what underpants experts have done in "Lingerie Française," an exhibit showing 100 years of French lingerie.
