    I wear horrible old t-shirts and sweat-pants around the house. I don't go out in public dressed like that. ONE time I went to the grocery store wearing sweats and I was horrified because I ran into a neighbor at the store.

    I live in sweats and loungewear type clothes. I wear them everywhere. After having to be dressed up all day for work, I'm all about the comfort. I'd wear sweatpants to the grocery store, gas station, etc and think absolutely nothing of it.
    Wake up and be awesome

    I abhore the term Baby Daddy too. UGH! Just like I abhore the term "My bad". The phrase is "I'm sorry, or I apologize". I just think saying "My bad" makes you sound illiterate. It's especially bad if it's an otherwise intelligent adult saying it. I don't like to hear kids say it, but someone my age saying it really ticks me off.

    I also don't like baby bump either.

    I hate sweatpants because of the elastic around the ankles. It bothers me. But I will occasionally wear the 1 of 2 pair I own to the store. I don't care what I look like in the grocery store, I'm not there to win a beauty pagent no matter who I run into.

    And my neighbors probably think I never dress in anything but PJ pants because if I'm home, that is what I have on and that is what they see me in when I take the dogs out, no matter what time of day. They're comfortable and they keep me warm (while I love AC, my legs get cold)

    The moment I get home I shed my work clothes and put on some yoga pants and a tank top. I don't normally go out in public like that but I have been known to run to the store for something quick wearing them.
    Yup, with donuts!!

    I know the above quote was posted a long time ago, but the kids at my step son's high school do this now. I laugh everytime I see it and keep teasing my step son that he is wearing a fashion that we made popular back before he was even born!

    I don't know if this has been posted, but bodysuits are back. Worn with high waisted jeans. For young skinny females only.

    UGH, Misskitty those things were horrible in the early 70's and I have no reason to think they would be any more comfy now. I won't be finding out, either.

    Not to mention it makes it hard to go to the bathroom.

    I guess I'm more of a practical person who sees both jumpsuits and bodysuits as a severe impediment to bodily functions. I need ease in my clothing and the ability to get to the bathroom quickly.

    I beg your pardon! I made bodysuits look good!!! I also learned to pull my bodysuit to the side when I had to "take care of business! Mine were always a nice, stretchy leotard, since I was heavily off into aerobics at that time and, even then, you needed to buy them about 2 sizes larger than you might have, ordinarily, for the stretch factor. Good grief, you all are bringing back memories!! Now, with jumpsuits, there was no were no shortcuts to taking care of business. I only wore one of those a couple of times, and that was enough for me.
