It’s tricky enough to go to the bathroom in a one-piece bathing suit. Why would you want to wear what's basically a body stocking out and about?

Think about it. If you have to take your top off to pee, you could easily drop a sleeve in the toilet…or get a chest cold. This fashion victim’s onesie needs to hustle back to where it came from—1977, to be specific. Whether it’s a strapless romper or an homage to skydiving style or that thing in the photo, chumpsuits belong on the trash heap of bad ideas (along with Utilikilts and mullets)…unless you are changing my oil.

Doublex magazine did a piece on the jumper trend, you know, those little plaid onesie shorts? Why are women dressing like one year olds? This is one of those reasons we are thrilled to be out of the 70s. And look at his hair! Another reason. If we really want to revisit the 70's, can we just listen to blood sweat and tears instead? I don't get it at all.

yeah, I know what you mean about peeing when you have a one piece bathing suit on. It's sad that I know this!

This post provides a valuable service.

And note that Mister Macho there, with his craggy, hairy face and clenched fists, still looks like a drag queen lounging between shows in that powder-blue hoodie getup with its perky little sleeves. Does the "H" belt buckle stand for "Hideous" or just "Hopeless"?

I bought a JLo (yes, that's right, JLo) jumpsuit like 7 years ago that is totally 70's pimp hot, and though I've only worn it 4 times, and never out of the house, I can't bring myself to part with it. It's sad, I know, but I just love it, no matter how wrong it is.

Are there belt loops, because I could see the belt joining the sleeves in the toilet!
