No, too cold on her legs, never warm enough in England for clothes like that, you'd never get enough use out of them to justify the cost

Maybe with a tshirt underneath. It would have to be really hot for DD to wear something backless in which case she might as well just wear a nappy or something more comfortable than a frilly romper/dress.

I would dress my dd in that if she was younger, but at 4 she wouldn't wear it, plus would struggle escaping it in the toilet grin
very cute though smile

No, don't like.

A bit OTT with the frills and I'd worry about sunburn on the days it was warm enough to wear it, but not horrible

whitewineintherain Sat 04-May-13 18:25:32

No, I don't like them as well as the fact the weather is never warm enough and I'd also worry about sunburn.

No. I really don't like (or understand) all the frilly layers. Mind you dd is 12 now! I did dress her in cotton romper type things in the summer when she was small, but in bright colours and without all the frills.

CreatureRetorts Sat 04-May-13 19:12:21

I would. Cute!

lljkk Sat 04-May-13 19:20:54

That's dead cute, I would, with tights & a long sleeve vest in present weather.

MoaningMingeWhingesAgain Sat 04-May-13 19:24:49

Very cute, but never be warm enough to wear it. And if it was warm enough, would worry about sunburn smile They are gorgeous though.

SecretCodesAndShame Sat 04-May-13 21:08:51

Urrrgh no. Far too frilly and short and like others have said, not covered up enough in cold, too exposed in heat. I have boys though so probably not the best judge but I just don't think they look nice with that much skin on show. Maybe with tights and long sleeves on but not just as they are.

I don't see the point of it

have never really known what a romper is, and now I know I'm pretty sure my dds didn't miss out

4yoniD Sat 04-May-13 21:16:38

Too much skin on show. She would either freeze or burn, depending on the weather!

No. Would have been a faff with nappy changing. Although might have poppers underneath I suppose. Just not the sort of thing either DC ever wore.

What about something without frills?

Kveta Mon 06-May-13 10:30:59

Nope! They are inoffensive, but not very practical. DD lives in leggings and a T-shirt at the moment, and they are fine for a mobile baby!

5madthings Mon 06-May-13 10:34:26

Dont like the first one but i do like the yellow one and my dd has something similar i got from a website called littlemoo or mimlnimoo? I layered it with long sleeved top and tights when it was cooler smile

OddBoots Mon 06-May-13 10:34:33

No, she's 10yo.

TheConstantLurker Mon 06-May-13 10:47:09

Not a backless one but DDs did wear similar sometimes. My problem would be the fact that they look as if they need ironed. I don't iron.

Marthanoooo Mon 06-May-13 11:10:00

It looks like our swimming costume. Only our is a tad less frilly. These things only .work in the context of a pool. Imo
