The fanny pack, belly bag or hip hippy hugger, whatever you call it, the thing was the height of fashion. And so convenient too! You could keep your wallet, sunglasses and keys right where you needed it, and it would take one fearless felon to try to pick your pocket.
Here we are on a trip to Disney World in 1995. My guess is, about two years after the trend really peaked since all three of us were in on it (and they were neon nylon).

Mary's looks so full, my guess is it held extra socks.
