1993 Spring/Summer Sears Catalog - Women's Section

Last year I found this Sears catalog from 1993 at a flea market. 



This is the kind of thing I love most to find at flea markets: the garbage that should have been tossed out long ago, yet some weirdo (in this case, a grandpa who probably just liked ogling the ladies in the bra pages) just couldn't bring themselves to let go of.

Here are a few women's items for sale back then:

*Dresses and suits that Barbara Bush would approve of


*The "padded plus brief"


*An awkward maternity shirt that looks like it should have been for the baby, not the expectant mother


*This pretty sweet swimsuit


*And of course, the most awesome Reeboks (still sold today!!)


Something I noticed in particular is that they offered all kinds of sizes to fit all kinds of ladies, which is commendable. And yes, Sears does still offer print catalogs. Did I sign up to get one? You bet I did!

More photos of the women's section can be seen here, on flickr. Later I'll feature more of the other departments (home fashions is the best!!).

  1. I feel like the red dress and swimsuit could be worn today and nobody would bat an eye. The 90s are back for real. My roommate wears this one dress I always call her Kelly Kapowski dress. Sadly she's 20 and Canadian and doesn't know the show...
