OPATOWEK, Poland (AP) - From bloomers to thongs -- a Polish museum is giving visitors a look at the history of women's "unmentionables."

Despite some snickers over the knickers, the museum's curator says it a serious exhibit that shows the progress of women.

The Museum of Industry (in Opatowek) isn't leaving the guys out entirely.

There are a few examples of male undergarments including boxers and a jock strap.

So, what's the next for women's underwear?

The curator says maybe a return to the original -- nothing.
