    I made a jumpsuit in the 80′s and didn’t wear it very much because of the bathroom factor. I can’t imagine wearing one now.

  2. Janice says:

    Having lived through the previous round of jumpsuit fashions I can reiterate what Brandy said. There’s no way to avoid having to undress any time you need a toilet. I cannot imagine why they’re back in style.

  3. Sandy Kiser says:

    I’m baffled too. As an “older ” multiparous woman who drinks a lot of water, this fashion choice ain’t going to happen!

  4. AA says:

    The question I have for jumpsuits is the same as rompers: how do you actually survive a day in them? Is there some secret toilet trick so you don’t have to strip naked, leaving your clothes on a damp restroom floor, then sit there feeling cold and foolish? Seriously, I’m baffled.
