Last fall during the American Music Awards, I noticed a very scary trend: the Adult Onesie.
It was disturbing, it was edgy, and, as I feared, it was the first step on the way to a new and terribly horrifying trend.
The Onesie is now known as . . . . The Romper.
If you haven’t yet laid eyes on this new and somewhat nauseating trend, you’re very lucky. But I’m afraid it won’t be long before the rampantly spreading epidemic will be searing your eyes as well.
But no longer is the world that cute of a place. Now, this is the meaning of romper:
My sisters, this should not be so.
There is a REASON that we are all ashamed of 80’s fashion as the Dark Ages of modern fashion – ESPECIALLY the early 80’s.
The denim ones are especially horrible, combining Mom Jeans, Grandma Jeans, and even the Grandma-Jean-Waistband-except-at-the-TOP-of-the-Romper:
And, if you’re proud of the fact that you’re sporting the early-80’s look, you can get it screen printed right on your romper:
Since this lovely piece of fashion has evolved from a baby garment, it does lend itself to some burning questions:
Are there still snaps in the crotch?
Is there still extra room in the back end to house a diaper?
I hope I never know.
At least, since I’m pregnant, I’m safe from the curse.
Yes, they have the especially nightmare-inducing Summer OR Winter preggo-belly ready versions!
Please, ladies, don’t let Romper happen to you.
