Wearing Limited Too in the 90s and early 2000s was a basic thing to do. I, of course, was the most basic 90s b*tch back in the day. On a daily basis, I rocked Limited Too from head to toe and had their accessories (blow up couch anyone?) all over my bedroom. I was totally an ~*LTD2 grl*~ and I had zero shame.
In no specific order, these are the top 15 things that Limited Too used to sell before it became a thing of the past and Limited Too became Justice (aka became cheaper). If you were an LTD2 girl too, you’ll probably remember all of them!
[I would like to thank the internet for this post, because without it, this trip down memory lane may not have been possible]
1. Camisole Tank Tops.
With built in bras. Because we had such large boobs!
2. Sparkle Camis.
This was my go-to top for middle school dances in the early 2000s lol. The OG going out top!!!!!
3. Spice Girls Lollipops.
I literally went to Limited Too just to buy these. Why??? Well, because Nsync and BSB lollipops would not have been as cool—and these were cool. GIRL POWER.
4. Silky Pajamas & Cotton Pajamas.
Not wearing these bad boys? YOU CAN’T PAJAMA PARTY WITH US.
5. Glitter Caboodles.
Dance competition essentials!!!
6. These overalls that Michelle wore on Full House when Comet ran free through the streets of San Francisco.
I had these Limited Too overalls and did not keep my cool upon discovering that I owned the same overalls as Michelle Tanner.
7. PHOTOS FROM THE LIMITED TOO STORE PHOTO BOOTH.
Because you needed something to do while mom waited in line with her credit card.
8. Graphic t-shirts with animals and peace signs on them.
Check out this girl’s TBT. SHE WAS SOOOO 90S.
9. Digital Cameras?!
We would apparently buy ANYTHING from Limited Too.
10. These Squishy Things…
What even are these and why?
11. Bras for people without boobs.
Because very few 8-10 year olds had boobs. So why were these being sold? MOM I JUST WANT THIS BRA FOR THE FASHION. Now I whip that thing off the moment I step inside my apartment. Oh how things have changed.
12. Flared Jeans.
And now they’re cool again!!! We’ve come full circle.
13. Inflatable Furniture.
Because this was normal. And also comfortable. Wait…
14. Inflatable… Bags???
Someone explain this to me.
15. ALL PLEATHER EVERYTHING.
I got my first *pleather* item from Limited Too in the 90s and I have never looked back. I somehow convinced my mom to buy me this badass pleather skirt, and I wore it like a boss. Now I wear my leather pants from Nordstrom like a boss, literally, because I wear them to work.
Inflatable everything! I definitely had one of those chairs. I used it maybe once. But I HAD to have it!
Does anyone remember those stretchy shirts?! The ones that looked tiny then stretched to ‘fit’ you?! Those were my LTD2 JAM! … apparently they still exist http://www.magicbubbleshirts.com/
I was never allowed to have one of those because they were “tacky” but I wanted one so bad….. What about those short sleeve angora sweaters?! They were so fluffy and soft. I did have one of those!
YES!! THANK YOU! #NeverForget
The book that they sold at the register! I fogot the name of it but it was a series and I loooovvvved it!
Oh my gosh yes! It was about that girl who modled for them and her friends.
How can this possibly leave out their underwear?!?
I was never oldenough to have three spice girl lollipop when they were out(idk why my parents attempted to shield me from them when my older sister loved the girls) BUT when I finally got one it was the best ever!
I love u forever!#LimitedToo
Hahaha that squishy thing…I had one of those just because all my friends had one so I HAD to have one too!!
I love this as my tween girls were totally decked out in Ltdtoo, but as former Gap employee Pretty sure little Michelle’s overalls were from Gapkids…
I think that the phrase “basic bitch” is not a good thing, it’s the opposite of being the “baddest bitch” — not too up to date with the popular vernacular but anytime i heard someone called “basic” it was not positive
13 years later and I can still fit in the same panties haha
i used to have one of those squishy things but i walked in on my brother masturbating with it and i never touched one again 🙁
The shorts that said things like “cheer” and “gymnast” across the butt from LTD2.. Yeeeeah every cool girl (including myself) in my middle school rocked those!
The shirts where just one sleeve was a strap. Half tank half tee
I legit remember the catalog page in #12 and I had that exact purple chair from #13. I really wanted the inflatable bed so I could RULE THE WORLD. But I never got it and it’s probably for the best.
(Later on in life, I would sleep on an inflatable mattress through an extended period in college and grew to hate it.)
I remember that I bought one of those sheer things that you hang above your bed like you would see over a princesses bed and I thought it was so cool! Until my cat ate the stars that were on it and climbed up it until the top ripped off…
#12 is from a delia’s magazine. i also knew and loved that brand. #neverforget
