yeah, I think it helps if you are tall. otherwise, it just makes you look even shorter and frumpy. I'm short, and I know they didn't flatter me that well either.

I don't know about that. One of my best friends from high school, like 5'5 and kind of round, looks better in overalls than anyone I have ever seen -- real life, movies, pictures, whatever, she's go them all beat. She looks so freakin' cute in them you can't stand it. I tend to think that you look silly in overalls if you're pretty tall, it just seems to make you look awkward and like you're trying too hard to be young again.

I still have my CN/CP Railroad overalls...real ones from a train engineer..I don't wear them very often anymore, but there was a time. I never thought of them or any overalls as sexy, but I can see the point of easy access...lol.

The last time I wore overalls I was VERY PREGNANT...so the sexiness just seemed to um...dissapppear!

What I like, dread, is when people who know you in completely different ways end up in the same area. And you have to develop, this like, combination you, on the spot.

I think overalls are forever. But I think the reason people think they're not "in" right now is because you don't see ads with them or pictures of models modelling them in ads. Of course they were really big from the retro days to the 90s, but they're timeless.

When overalls were really in at my school, everyone wore them with one of the straps undone and hanging behind them. If you wore them with both straps buckled, you were a dork. LOL...was it like that at anyone else's school?

BTW, this is my first post. Yay.

Haha, I remember that! Kinda like only wearing one strap of your backpack. I think it gave me a slight hunch-back.
