Reading your post, it brings back fond memories too.
Growing up, I remember the Sears catalogue, and I remember flipping by the women’s section and looking at the beautiful girls in there, especially the shapewear section. Not sure why I was so drawn to girls dressed in shapewear only, especially the bodysuits.
I also remember I had to sneak the catalogue in private to view the pics, as I thought I would get into trouble looking at girl’s clothes in a catalogue. So when family members were around, I would look at the toy section in the catalogue, but when no one was around I would take quick looks at the women’s section.
