Catalogs #43: 80s Underwear

Yeah, that's right.  Today we're looking at women's underwear.  Is there a problem?  For your information, we're doing it in the name of historical preservation.

And we're not looking at frilly lingerie either.  This is casual underwear only.  I'm talkin' cotton panties with butterflies and flowers on it.  Let's have a look year by year from 1980 to 1992.  Enjoy.

  1. Double Yay!

  2. In a spirit of fairness, I think you should do one of these featuring men also. :-)

  3. Ah yes, I remember those 4 beauties from the Fall/Winter '89 catalog VERY well!

  4. We were a better looking country 30 years ago ...

    1. Yes we were, sad to day. Dang these ladies could bring the heat!!

  5. The "pulling up-pulling down" motif seems to have been very popular with lingerie models.

  6. Ah, yes...the Golden age of women's underwear...not a boy short in sight, thank the Lord!
