  1. Is that a real flower?!? It's gorgeous and so much better than those Japanese burumas! lol
    I had to wear those during P.E. when I first went to a Japanese school...NOT one of my best memories ;-)

  2. The flower is a hibiscus.
    You went to school in Japan?
    I wore big bloomers called rompers at high school for sports.

  8. The bottom bloomers are definitely not "unmentionables."

  9. Very funny! I wasn't expecting the hibiscus at the end of your post:)

    Just checked out your Bluey post...I'll definitely save one of those pics to show Mr. J! Hilarious!

    Another bloomer name for you, in Afrikaans -'Broekies'

  18. Meri,
    those bottom ones are possible still found in many old ladies drawers! (pun not intended but works)

  19. Jen, yes I has bloomin baggy blue rompers at school too, so ugly - we would tuck them up into the elastic and only the nerds wore them the way they were intended.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Willow, yes shrunk in size and in some cases modesty too...
    Happy days

  22. Natalie,
    you will be getting to the stage were you have to wrestle back your knickers from your daughters when they raid them from the laundry basket...like the sports sox that always go missing....

  25. Mona,
    I think I can be funny in writing more easily than in conversation...
    Thanks for being kind.

  26. Jennifer,

    well it's Friday here and I have just done my tough back to back pump and body balance classes so feel as if I can relax into the weekend...
    I hope you have enough steam to finish the week...

  27. Lovely, Lovely, fun post! What a delight! Glad I wasnt in the day of the bloomers, like french kickers though! They are like the men's boxer shorts, but are made of silk with a lace frill round the legs. The real bloomers are so beautiful- great post!

  28. Hi Delphine,

    they came back in for a while I bought some in Japan...good for under tight long pants...

  29. In Cuban Spanish: 'blumers' after the English word 'bloomers'. By the way that's a thong, not a G-string. A G-string or 'dental floss' ('hilo dental' in Spanish) doesn't have the triangular bit.

    This was such a fun post and looking at Henry with his codpiece cracked me up so much.

    Many thanks.

    Greetings from London.

  30. Hi Mr Cuban,
    Henry does look awfully proud of his codpiece! It was probably packed for effect!
    happy Days

  31. What a fun post! I remember the bloomers my mum used to sew for me when I was young, and what a treat it was to eventually get store bought undies :)

  32. It's really a great post.
    Love the bloomer of these panties and hibiscus, they are so cool!
