Yes! Have a few including a vintage 90s one.

I've got a dungarees dress but I dont fo actual dungarees because I'm v short and think I would look even more quite childish wearing them.
I used to quite like dungaree shorts with frayed edges but think DD would roll her eyes and be horrified if I contemplated wearing them now!

I like them a lot on other people. I don't suit them. I'm too tall and hourglass I think. Or it's just something about me which looks strange in them.

I like them on other people. They look ridiculous on me sadly

I'm 56 and wear dungaree dresses, look great in the summer with a vest top and flip flops or thick tights and a long sleeve T in the winter.

No. Though not bothered about other people wearing them.

I think it's childhood issues. I didn't like a lot of the clothes I waa made to wear - thus included dungarees. You also couldn't get me in anything with a collar that buttons up to the neck

Actusl the collar thing is worse. I don't like then on anyone.

I have two pinafore/dungaree dresses.

I look shit in proper/trouser dungarees though. I think most people do unless they are very slim.

I love them! Live in my pinafore dress (should probably buy some more!) Have two pairs of dungarees that I haven't worn much because of lockdown but will be back in them soon!

Love the dresses, hate the trousers.

Grapewrath Fri 30-Apr-21 20:13:45

I’ve worn pinafores for years and love dungarees too!

I have a lovely mustard print pinny but the top half is massive on me. Don’t care, I feel so cute in it anyway.

No, I always think of the Harry Enfield sketch with the giant babies when I see adults in dungarees. They aren’t overly flattering on most figures. But everyone has different views on clothes and why do things need to be flattering.

Love the dreses, actually saw a pair of dungarees I liked but realised I'd look like a children's TV presenter.

No. They don't look good on me. Big boobs in a pinafore or dungarees are not a good look!

PaulHollywoodsLowHangingFruit Sat 01-May-21 18:51:44

Yes love them. Don't agree you have to be slim to wear them.

I have these and they are incredibly flattering-

They look adorable on my toddler.

Squiz81 Sat 01-May-21 19:02:14

Love them, wearing these as I type!

I find dungarees more comfortable than jeans and I have quite a few pairs now. I also like dungaree dresses. I have a pair of dungaree shorts too, but I’m never 100% sure if they make me look like an overgrown kid

KirstenBlest Sat 01-May-21 20:20:28

Yes, I have a few L&Y ones, a cord pinafore, can't remember the brand, and some denim ones from GAP including short ones. They are flattering. The pinafore seems a bit short when I'm sitting down so I wear it with thick tights.

I won't lie, part of being pregnant is the excitement I have of feeling brave enough to wear dungarees! My local village does a Wednesday market and honestly the ones their are lush. I think they're ageless and sizesless

SmashingPumpkinPatch Sat 01-May-21 20:53:39

Haha yes, the only time I have successfully worn dungarees and looked pretty adorable in them, if I do say so myself, was when I was pregnant. I found them so much more comfortable than maternity jeans, so wore them ALL the time. The only issue was going to the loo, as I had winter babies and was at my biggest in cold weather. Didn't want to take my coat off to take off my dungarees sometimes!

swampytiggaa Sat 01-May-21 21:02:26

Just bought myself a pair of denim dungarees. My daughter tells me it’s ‘a look’ especially with my shaved head 😂😂 tbh I’m 51 and no longer give a fuck what people think.

Thought my husband would hate them but he rather likes them which is nice 😊

GeidiPrimes Sat 01-May-21 21:56:29

Love dungarees! Have a few pairs from L+Y, all in bright colours (no pattern*). Perfect for my "lifestyle" which consists mainly of dossing about in the countryside with my dog. I love a boilersuit too. Not so much pinafores (probably bc I don't wear skirts)

*Tell a lie, am awaiting order of a turquoise pair with pink spots

Lovemusic33 Sat 01-May-21 21:58:43

Love both, not sure if I look ok in them but I have quite a few pairs of dungarees and a Lucy and yak dungaree dress.
