The Awesome Unitard

Remember the unitard?

The way tard is thrown around these days implying stupidity, one might think unitard meant an idiot of undetermined gender. Or any idiot for us all.


But, no.
A unitard is like a dance onsie for people old enough to dance.
You pull it on over you head and it has crotch snaps.
What, I always found weird and uncomfortable.
Snaps don't want to snap together?
Push harder.
Nope, that is not good.

But, we want to jazzercize or pretend we are an awesome ballerina.
Maybe get classy and wear some panty hose underneath and some leg warmers.
Maybe just the legwarmers.



Sure you can still find unitards, though they look a little different.
Without the legwarmers, they just are not the same at all.

  1. Some don't have the snaps underneath. You have to just squirm into them. Some modern spanx are very similar, now that I think of it.

  7. Ha - I forgot all about these. I had several of them in the 90s - black, floral, all kinds. They were the "it" thing to wear for awhile. So uncomfortable.
