I see New Look are now selling 80s style bodysuits - would you wear one?

Are they coming back?

I know they're heinous, plus there's all that faff going to the toilet. But I like to wear vests under jumpers and suffer badly from muffin top.

I'm thinking at £6 this might be the answer to my problems...

i used to live in them and have tons, not sure if i want to put myself through that again though grin. maybe i'll buy one.

No- they're uncomfortable as I have a long body. As a result, they pull my largeish bosom into a flattish ledge- not a good look.

I am still scarred from last time

if i wasn't pg

I loved them. But the popper in pub toilet thing... And after five pints you would give it up as a bad job and come back with the flap hanging out the back. blush

GirlsAreLoud Fri 28-Aug-09 19:41:47

Wow, imagine if they sold supersize ones for pregnant women. I had that evil gap betwixt vest and trousers from about 6 months.

Mind you, imagine doing the poppers up at 9 months pregnant...

Scorps Fri 28-Aug-09 19:42:51

yes, not something oyu could ask someone to help you with in a toilet is it grin

Oh God I remember banging my head on a toilet door when trying to fasten mine up grin, imagine the youth of today trying to fasten their's drunk and with those long stick on nails grin, ah the joys of youth

God yes, trying to faff around with poppers and getting hair and sometimes important body bits caught up in them......
I had a boyfriend who loved me wearing them, and bought me really posh ones from Fogel- he used to turn up at work with them for me.
Don't think I'll be wearing them 2nd time round- I have a long body and they would give me a wedgie, as ds would say.

I used to really like them, but I didn't have norkage then. Think it would be good for my muffin top though

LadyPinkofPinkerton Fri 28-Aug-09 20:56:31

Ooh I really liked them, but never experienced the pub toilet thing due to being less than a teenager at the time. I wonder whether to head over to New Look and try them.

If my post makes no sense it is due to the wine I have drunk

don't faff with the poppers - just pull 'em to the side while you have a pee

problem solved

I'd buy one, think they look nice

flier Fri 28-Aug-09 21:07:16

grin was just about to post the same, slowreadingprogress. I never had a problem with the poppers, cos that what I used to do, but you need to get ones that are stretchy enough to be able to do that, I remember some of the cheaper ones didn't have enough stretch.

GirlsAreLoud Sat 29-Aug-09 14:02:28

Right, I'm going to go to town today and do the deed.

And look for the ultra stretchy ones grin

but cheesesarnie iirc you are very slender and unlikely to understand the pain of living with a muffin top.

SausageRocket Sat 29-Aug-09 14:04:32


but then I'm not into the mega tight tshirt tucked into trousers look anyway.

GirlsAreLoud Sat 29-Aug-09 14:05:25

I just want something to wear under a jumper that won't hang out undeneath my jumper and won't stop at the top of my jeans either.

SausageRocket Sat 29-Aug-09 14:06:21

I remember them being quite sweaty too.

GirlsAreLoud Sat 29-Aug-09 14:09:00

True. I remember that.

These are just vests with poppers though.

I'm ging to give it a try, they're only £6.

cheesesarnie Sat 29-Aug-09 14:11:13

GirlsAreLoud- true.sorry as you pointed out i don'tblush i just had memories of my mum buying me rose patterned body suits when i was about 14!
