"How do Girls Wearing Rompers Go to the Bathroom?"

I CANNOT SUPPORT YOU LADIES WEARING THISThis is one of the five things you see on Twitter before you die. (Another being TWEETS FROM YOUR GLEEFUL EXECUTIONER.) It is: "How do girls wearing rompers go to the bathroom? Is it just really awkward?" Well, it had to be asked. Because apparently the romper/jumpsuit thing is out of control-so much so that the Houston Chronicle, that arbiter of fashion, is all over it. Oh yes: "There are short romper styles at Wal-Mart and elegant jumpsuits at Nordstrom and other upscale retailers." Wal-Mart, people. And "upscale"-like Nordstrom! Oh my. Also NewsNet5 is on the case: "Rompers are all the rage this summer!" Haha, oh boy. So what's the answer about the whole peeing thing?

The answer may not surprise anyone. :(

You wear diapers, because this is a garment only for girls who are under the age of three.

Alternatively, it all comes off, like that scene in "Boogie Nights," the moment before Rollergirl fucks Dirk.

And then, later, you bash someone's face in with your rollerskates.

A Boogie Nights reference? *call me

You know, Deep O, I was gonna go with a "Truck Turner" reference, but thought better of it.

You know who had a mouth on her? Nichelle Nichols!

"Those two bitches who left? They better learn how to sell pussy in Iceland, because if I ever see them again I'm gonna cut their fucking throats."

Selling Pussy in Iceland: The Nichelle Nichols Story

@say: Btw, I am totally a Nichelle-ist! Ever hear the Dirtbombs song about her? (Or have we had this convo before?)

saythatscool (#101)

Nope. Twasn't me. And I have never heard the song.

*Goes to listen to "I'm Saving Myself for Nichelle Nichols"*

Why that's silly! Nichelle's not a virgin. Why would anyone save himself for her? oohhhhhhh.
Me likey! Thanks.

Btw, how did Nichelle go pee pee in that Truck Turner's wardrobe?

@Bookish well that depends…

A.R. Chrisman (#2,964)

Tina Weymouth should have answered this years ago.

LOLing Heads

DoctorDisaster (#1,970)

That's a joke, right, Jen Doll? Please say that's a joke.

The only doll I know who can "pee to one side" is named Baby, is about six-one, has to shave twice a day and uses a lot of tape around her genitalia.

I wonder if these can be adapted somehow.

"It's a female urination device (sometimes called a FUD)". I have never heard this acronym.

Miles (#3,961)

Nordstrom ain't upscale?

scroll_lock (#4,122)

They pride themselves on great customer service. Kathy Griffin said her mom returned a half-eaten hot dog to Nordstrom and got $17 back.

Miles (#3,961)

I… what?

NicFit (#616)

I believe they still hire old men to play piano near the escalators.

jfruh (#713)

They totally do in the one in Baltimore! Only instead of old men it's middle-aged ladies.

Well, first, God gave Mommy a peepee hole…..

They need a buttflap.

A union suit. Oh, no. No "hillbilly chic" for the hipster set, please, they'll fuck that up royally too.

via wiki:
"A union suit is a type of one-piece long underwear. Created in Utica, New York, United States, it originated as women's wear during the nineteenth-century United States clothing reform efforts, as an alternative to constricting garments, and soon gained popularity among men as well."

Yes, that'll do.

The answer is naked! and freaking out someone may accidentally open the door.

But it's always better to be the topless girl than the girl who smells like urine.

You unzip the fucking thing, slide it down, and fucking pee. I had a strapless one a couple of years ago (I know, but it made my boobs look awesome) and I never even thought about peeing down the leg hole. You probably shouldn't buy clothing that you cannot figure out how to remove.

Mary HK Choi (#1,469)

NUH UH. Strapless that looked awesome? Shelf bra? Boning? What's the situation here? I have 2384723947293847 onesies none strapless. Magical strapless bra? Need more information.

I KNOW. Boning. Magical boning (heh!).

Lux Alptraum (#3,933)

Yeah, I was gonna say: you take the fucking thing off. It's the same as with leotards. NOT THAT COMPLICATED.

Also, why are useful strapless bras so hard to make if they could make this one romper?

deepomega (#1,720)

This thread makes me appreciate how Boray felt every day in America. (Confused, aroused, confusedly aroused?)

deepomega (#1,720)

BOOO. *Borat! christ

Mary HK Choi (#1,469)

ROMPERS RULE. PEEING RULES. It's all totally worth it.

Lux Alptraum (#3,933)

I support this comment.

Wearing one like this right now

and having a glass of wine. Will be peeing soon, I'll let you know how it all works out.

True story: In high school, one of my go-to outfits was a full-on catsuit with a blazer. I had to get nekkid from the thighs up to pee. Good times!

My 80's club outfit was a slate blue mechanic's suit (smeared with paint, the previous owner was my ex's artist ex) worn over a red lace camisole and with red Capezio tap heels. And yes, maneuvering the toilets at whatever place that was worth going to was a contortionist's nightmare, but the whole outfit cost about $30. And I felt like a million fucking bucks. Oh, youff.

DoctorDisaster (#1,970)

Yes, but catsuits are hot. Who would go to this kind of trouble for a romper?

Jen Doll (#5,613)

yes, joke! seriously, i just pee straight forward. whether i'm wearing rompers or not.

Holy Cathy with a catheter, Batman!

jfruh (#713)

Last weekend my wife and I were eating at an outdoor cafe and she someone we knew across the street standing amidst a crowd and she said, "Oh, look there's [x]!" and I said "Where?" and she said, "Right there, in the grey romper," and I said, "What, where? I don't see her", and she said "RIGHT THERE IN THE ROMPER" and we went back and forth like this a couple of times until finally I had to admit that I didn't really know what a "romper" was or what it looked like. Had only this servicey post been published last weekend, I would have been SAVED THIS HUMILIATION.

MollyculeTheory (#4,519)

In a way that is v. unfortunate when the bathroom has an open window and the window overlooks many many peoples.

garge (#736)

I appreciate rompers the way I appreciate all pieces of clothing I could not pull off (high waisted jeans and shorts, shoes with ankle straps, bubble skirts, bustiers): with bitter envy. In fact, if I could wear rompers, I might not suffer S.A.D.D. for the entire summer.

I only wish I had MORE excuses to pee naked .. who doesn't?

DoctorDisaster (#1,970)

I know what you mean. I can only pull off shorts when someone else is wearing them.

A.R. Chrisman (#2,964)

@DoctorD: Yikes, that's a deep joke.

@garge: Is that extra D indicative of your cup size?

garge (#736)

@Bookish: Heh, that would be S.A.A.D. It is an indication of how Affected I already am, apparently. And that drunk driving was a big problem where I spent my formidable years.

OK. Then I have a question about these Hammer pants.

Clip Arthur (#2,024)

[TK: "Electric Boogaloo" joke.]

Pandemic Endemic (#3,825)

You go into a lake or the ocean and do it in there, while at the same time you're splashing around and trying to not look like you're sneaking a pee, just like with a swimsuit.

Yawn (#4,506)

This is where being an old helps. After having to deal with the terry cloth versions of these demonic devices in the 70s in such sanitary environments as playground and theme park restrooms, I shudder to think about wearing one in any NYC bar restroom.

So now I just point and laugh.

Jean Bledsoe (#6,700)

Your answers have left me full of disdain and disappointment:no rompers in my future. I laughed so hard, I almost peed my pants!! Good thing I'm not wearing a romper!
