Does it come with instructions on how to make that dashing matching hair bow?  Cheesy

As a child of the 80s, I'm horrified to see that 80s clothing is back in style. I spent 10 years trying to forget that I ever wore tapered leg pants with zippers on the ankles. Although, I did rock my neon rainbow zebra-printed bike shorts in '89!

OMG that's hilarious! I love the way she's having to hold it up with her elbows - like if she tried to reach for her pina colada it'd be round her ankles in no time  Grin Grin Grin Gotta love that hair too
Oh I cry with laughter here  Cheesy 

Glad I'm not the only one trying to forget batwing sleeves...

oh man, the pic reminds me of the diaper shorts craze of the early '80s. Everyone at school had the diaper shorts for gym class, except moi. My parents thought they were stupid looking and refused to purchase them for me. Looking this pic, once again my parents were soooo right...lol.

here's a better description of the diaper shorts - I snagged from a 80's clothing site...


Diaper Shorts Female Clothes 1982-84 

These shorts were made of a long strip of material with ties on each end. First you would tie the front "panel" around your waist, with the tie in the back, and the fabric hanging down the front like an apron. Then you would bring the fabric up between your legs (like a diaper, hence the name) and bring the ties around to the front, making a bow. They often were made of safari print fabrics.

Honestly, I don't remember the safari prints just the striped ones (blue and white, red and white, black and white, pastel...etc.).

I just dated myself....lol.

Oh gosh I don't remember seeing those - they sound awful!  I bet they worked "best" in neon though...  Wink

I have to find a picture now,  I can't believe they were real.

I'm gobsmacked. Maybe these were just a USA thing...? (I'm in the UK)

WARNING! Don't open the site if you're easily freaked out.

It made me shudder.

Wow,  Shocked  uh...that is an interesting website!

Um, yep, I learned about that fetish on CSI one night.  They had a whole episode based on it. I found it just a bit strange to say the least . 

But anyhoo, the diaper shorts are hideous!
