Of all the things I never thought would come back, sodding ski pants! shock

Is anyone wearing them yet??

jenk1 Mon 14-Sep-09 15:49:33

oh no not those with the stirrup at the bottom they were rank years ago. shock

nickelbabe Mon 14-Sep-09 15:50:55

surely only really short women can wear them anyway?
god, when i was 12 they would fall down if i put them stirrups under my feet!

AvadaKedavra Mon 14-Sep-09 15:51:03

Oh yes the very same hmm

AvadaKedavra Mon 14-Sep-09 15:51:59

Ah nickelbabe, that would explain why I remember people walking round with the loops off and halfway up their leg then!

I still have a faint twinge in the vag area when thinking back to those too small skipants when I was 10. Oh my!

I had a pair in 1986 when I was 12.

Even then they were shit, the knees went baggy after 10 minutes and they kept falling down. I did love them though. At the time.

I can't imagine anything more horrific than my mid-30's chunky thighs and wobbly arse in a pair now. I'm sure I'll see plenty about though hmm

I remember a baby pink soft cord pair I had that I wore to death. Of course I thought I was the mutts.

MmeLindt Mon 14-Sep-09 16:01:12

I had a dark green cord pair of ski pants.

Being a short arse, I had no problems with the length, but they are the most unflattering style going.

I don't think I will visit my parents in UK for a year or two until this craze dies down again.

SolidGoldBrass Mon 14-Sep-09 16:04:09

Whoopee, I like them. Was cross when they disappeared from the shops, will happily stock up this year.

AvadaKedavra Mon 14-Sep-09 16:04:56

I haven't actually seen anyone in them yet, unless they are wearing them with boots then you wouldn't tell the difference between them and leggings/jeggings/tregging/whateverthefucktheyarecalled

Even the words ski pants still give me the heebie jeebies.

Bloody hell I looked awful in them back in the day, I would be a danger to public mental health if I wore them nowgrin

We used to wear ours over kitten heels with the stirrup on the outside!!

Mimi1977 Mon 14-Sep-09 16:30:19

I used to have a purple cord pair when was about 8 teamed with a pair of pixie boots!!

random Mon 14-Sep-09 16:32:08

My dds used to wear them with pixie boots {shows age} I have photos to prove it mawahaha

AvadaKedavra Mon 14-Sep-09 16:41:02

How fancy Dexter73 smile

dexter73 Mon 14-Sep-09 16:43:26

I looked fab!grin

PinkTulips Mon 14-Sep-09 16:44:32

ick, i was too tall for them as a child so was one of those with stirrups banging against shins!

AvadaKedavra Mon 14-Sep-09 16:48:54

Is anyone going to be daft brave enough to give them a whirl second time round then? grin

Although I'm sure some of the super skinny girls at work (who are too young to remember them the first time round) will get them and look gorgeous in them
