What do you think? awful or nice. The denim ones are all sold out and with a hefty pricetag they have now introduced linen cotton ones in a kind of beige colour. I am in two minds. I love the top half of them but think the bottom half make the model look like an overgrown toddler. What do you think of them? Or maybe you have a pair and think they look nice on real women? I think the models make the clothes look weird and really puts me off buying anything from them [ if i could afford it] as they are way overpriced imo. Comments please ?????!!!!

Personally, no. I know someone who's young and slim and even she doesn't look good in dungarees!

Pixiepie Sat 08-Mar-14 20:15:26

Ive never seen anyone wearing dungarees actually. The toast ones look pretty awful tbh..really baggy at the bottom and yet they have sold out, so someone must have bought them!
My daughter is 7 and she has a denim pair from Joules. She looks cool in them but i think even in her they make her bum look bad!!! and she is a child!!!

TacitusMouse Sat 08-Mar-14 21:04:58

I do wonder because they are super impractical as well - I mean imagine going to the toilet in them! (I always wonder the same thing about onesies too though)

I have recently acquired a cheap pair from ASOS. They are slim fitting and while they're not THE most flattering garment in my wardrobe, they are perfectly passable for day to day wear. I like them with high tops and a stripey tee.

I do really like the look of some of them esp the wide leg ones out of river island although unfortunately wasnt lucky enough to get a pair of them. I do have a pair of lovely blue denim washed ones although i havent worn them as yet. I will wear them tucked into my boots and with a cardigan to cover my bum!!!

I have just bought myself a pair of gorgeous dungarees from dungarees-online. I was a bit unsure to be honest but when they came oh my goodness...they are super soft and so comfy. Have lived in them since!! Called them up and spoke to a lady called Sharon who was so helpful! Good luck finding your perfect pair...they had loads of different

Dungarees are one of the things we wore in the 80s and now look back at ourselves in awe - what the hell were we thinking?! It's not a good look imo - might be the in look at the moment, but that still doesn't make it a good look...

Enb76 Mon 10-Mar-14 14:03:15

My SIL has a pair - they looked pretty good on her. However, £135? with a family of 4 who I know are struggling for money. Still, she does always have nice clothes.

dexter73 Mon 10-Mar-14 14:24:11

I haven't seen them but the description of beige linen dungarees alone is enough to send me screaming for the hills! I have never seen anyone wearing dungarees and thought they looked good. Leave them to the toddlers!

Pixiepie Tue 11-Mar-14 12:48:21

Yeh, i had a pair a long time ago. I do at myself and think OMG!!!! they were really horrible, baggy with a sweatshirt tucked in [cringe] but i loved them so much!!! The thing is, they do look much nicer now cause they always tweek new styles. I mean i love flare legged jeans and still wear them!!!!! I have a soft spot for dungarees and infact anything with that bib and brace style. . Enb76..yeh £135 is a lot of money if you are struggling. I dont know if i love or hate them on the website. The beige ones are £179!!!!!!! Take a look !

Dear god! No!!!

I have that many thoughts whirling round my head about them that they won't come out.
Just don't do it!

Nipersvest I love those dungarees! she looks great in them imo. I wish I could find a pair like that! smile smile I have searched and searched for that relaxed look but cant seem to find ones like thatconfused confused

frankietwospots Wed 12-Mar-14 09:03:57

Even M&S have them!

Must say I rather like them...

mummyjones1 Wed 12-Mar-14 10:40:06 this might work..

Pixiepie Wed 12-Mar-14 14:06:23

I think I found the ones you mean. I love them. Do you know if they are true to size?smile smile smile

mummyjones1 Wed 12-Mar-14 14:17:14

Oh I am glad that you like them too!! They are so comfy and I was beginning to think that I was going mad when I read the other comments from other mummies!

I got my usual size and they fit perfectly! I called them and Sharon was so patient! She went and measured the dungarees for me so I could size them up before I bought them! The only thing with them is that the inside leg is way too big for me but I've rolled them up and they're fine! smile smile

Floisme Wed 12-Mar-14 14:17:43

You cannot be serious shock I wore those in the 70s!

Pixiepie Wed 12-Mar-14 15:39:50

mummyjones what size are you? I am a 12 but have a round tummy. It says the size 12 is 30inches. I think that might be neat on me?

ADifferentKindOfMum Wed 12-Mar-14 19:38:34

amber I've got the Asos ones too...can't say I'd go out for the day/evening in them but I really enjoy wearing them and I don't think they look totally horrendous. Come summer with a vest top and rolled up with sandals/Superga they will be great!

mummyjones1 Thu 13-Mar-14 07:26:10

Hi pixiepie...I am a size 10 and also have a "mummy tummy" blush the 10s fit nicely though...Sharon did say to me I could exchange the dungarees if they weren't right smile

Pixiepie Thu 13-Mar-14 09:03:28

Mummyjones going to get the 12's! I will keep you posted! grin grin grin

mummyjones1 Thu 13-Mar-14 09:13:23

Pixiepie...I hope you like them as much as I do! [Smile]

flipchart Thu 13-Mar-14 09:55:49

I'm just not getting the dungarees.

You will all look like children's tv presenters from the 80's. surely that isn't the look you want.

Pixiepie Thu 13-Mar-14 13:10:53

I dont get why people dont like them. I think they look great when they are the right fit and they are worn well. I wore them when I was young and I wore leggings but there is no way I would wear them the same way with the same things. That is why! I mean its perfectly clear to me that fashion comes round again and again. It always tweaked in a different way. I wear leggings but I wear them under dresses and tunics not the way they were worn in the 80's!smile smile

Rooners Thu 13-Mar-14 13:12:34

Is it 1992? grin

cloudskitchen Thu 13-Mar-14 13:15:38

I didn't know Toast sold kids clothes wink

TulipOHare Thu 13-Mar-14 13:54:38

I like them too! Toast ones hideously overpriced though shock

dexter73 Thu 13-Mar-14 21:50:51

I don't like them because they are so unflattering. They make your bum look huge and cover up any waist you may have. They never seem to fit properly. Also they are a complete pain in the arse when you need to go to the loo. I cannot imagine a single reason why I would wear them!

flipchart Fri 14-Mar-14 16:38:55

I don't like hem because they are impractical, ugly and unflattering.

AwkwardSquad Fri 14-Mar-14 17:44:13

I used to rock dungarees when I was about 17 or so, loose fit wrecked denim ones with a tight vest underneath grin and a headscarf a la Rosie the Riveter.

What do you all think of this gem from Toast? I think they've outdone themselves.

And I usually quite like Toast.

flipchart Fri 14-Mar-14 18:42:17

Akward Those dungarees are great if you are Andy Pandy.
Even the model looks ridiculous.

AwkwardSquad Fri 14-Mar-14 18:43:06

And slightly traumatised...

MerylStrop Fri 14-Mar-14 18:50:07

Used to wear denim dungarees (when I was young and lissom and hot) Actually, yes that would have been 1992.

Those toast ones are AWFUL, they look like cheap supermarket baby clothes freakily scaled up. I sort of get the ones on the blog channelling the Barbara off the good life vibe. But even so, probably only for the young, slim and pretty.

I'm wearing my ASOS ones today, I love em!

Don't think I look TOO bad, do I?

AwkwardSquad Fri 14-Mar-14 19:30:01

I think you look great. The yellow sneakers are perfect. I'm an overall fan (ba-boom tish!).

HaymitchAbarnathy Fri 14-Mar-14 19:35:13

I've got some skinny black ones from new look, love them.

flipchart Fri 14-Mar-14 20:06:12

Amber you look great if you are decorating!

Lolz at decorating. Toddler wrangling and Tesco so not a massive step up. I wouldn't wear them out on the pull. Though DH might have something to say about that.

dexter73 Fri 14-Mar-14 21:19:54

I don't know if it is the camera angle but they make your body look very long and your legs quite short.

Combination of camera angle and my actual body shape, alas.

frankietwospots Fri 14-Mar-14 22:03:32

Love 'em Amber!

Pixiepie Fri 14-Mar-14 23:22:16

You look great in them!

If your aim is Play School presenter meets Bananarama, then go ahead...

50ShadesOfMaybe Sat 15-Mar-14 06:10:18

You look great, Amber!

Saw someone wearing a skinny black pair yesterday: am tempted.

Pixiepie Sat 15-Mar-14 11:43:02

That stripe jumpsuit from toast is seriously awful!!!!! Now i do think they are hideous hideous hideous!!!! One for the sales. I mean who will wear them?

I thought the dungarees from toast might look ok on a real person with some shape!!! Not the beige ones but the denim ones. I dont like the models in the toast website. They look awful with anything on them from their website. Is it just me?

Floisme Sat 15-Mar-14 15:16:31

I have fond memories of my dungarees. I don't think I'll be bothering this time round but I'd be quite pleased (although surprised) to see them back. Yes, they are hideously unflattering but that's kind of the point!

MerylStrop Sat 15-Mar-14 16:14:48

Amber you look great
You are wearing an identical outfit to my 7 year old daughter. She looks fab too.

Pixiepie Sat 12-Apr-14 11:45:05

I ordered the toast ones to see what all the fuss was about. OMG they were hiddeous!!!! I looked like andy pandy!!! RETURNED!!! i honestly cant see how anyone would suit them. How could they sell out!! They were truly horrible! I am a size 12 so dont consider myself as normal. They just looked so wrong!

Pixiepie Sat 12-Apr-14 11:45:54

Sorry that should have read...i am a size 12 and consider myself AS NORMAL in size that is!!!!
