An animated ad by Silhouette Lingerie will be appearing on The One Show, this May 19.
The 1950s Silhouette Little X clip will feature in a series of short films for a documentary about the history of underwear.
Silhouette Lingerie head of sales and marketing Amanda Joynt said: “It’s great. It is the sort of thing that we do get asked quite a lot, because the company has been going from 1877.
“We do get quite a lot of people calling up from exhibitions and, because we have been going so long, we are usually the first port of call.”
The programme, focussing on girdles, will air on May 19 at 7pm (BBC1).
