Strolling down memory lane can be both hilarious and cringe-worthy, as these old photos from Victoria's Secret second and third annual fashion shows from 1996 and 1997 prove!
Since the fashion show was filmed on Tuesday, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to pay a little #TBT recognition to panties of runways past!
Back then, the walkway was narrow and bare, no crystals glittering on it or ribbons hanging down from the ceiling.

The lingerie was pretty dull as well!
The stylists seemed especially fond of baby doll dresses, like on Naomi Campbell (above left), or bizarre leopard-print shrugs like on Helena Christensen (above right).
Meanwhile, they sent Tyra Banks down the catwalk in high-waisted green satin undies with a matching bra and a zebra-print robe!
That doesn't match at all!
These days we get psychedelic wings and heart-print thigh-high boots instead!
You've come a long way, VSFS, a truly long way!
