Vintage lingerie

Our collection of vintage Sears catalogues provide a fascinating glimpse into everyday Americana of the 1950s. This scan from the 1950 spring edition shows more seriously enticing ways of keeping that pin-up girl figure, and the price is very reasonable! The Pin-up Files is hoping Santa will be bringing us more 1950s Sears catalogues this Christmas.

On a personal note, my girlfriend has made me promise to buy a collection of girdles retrospectively from this catalogue and have them shipped forward in time...
