I loved nylon jogging suits as a small child. And I loved the swishy sound they made. A lot of my teachers and classmates wore jogging suits all the time and I wanted some jogging suits of my own. In second grade, I got a lot of those suits when I went school clothes shopping. During the warmer weather, I wore jogging suit without lining everytime it rained. We had PE twice a week and I always wore a pair of nylon jogging pants to school on days we had PE because I wanted to hear myself swishy all through gym class. When we had field trips, I made sure that I wore a pair of jogging pants because we'd be walking around all day and that meant I could hear myself swishy non stop all day. During the colder weather, I wore a jogging suit full time.
loved to swishy - July 21, 2017 - Report this comment
We couldn't wear shorts to school after the end of September through mid to late April at my primary school. So, after we couldn't wear shorts, It was really cold outside on the play ground and we had to go outside to go to lunch since the lunch room was in another building. I didn't wear jeans;my parents had me wear a pair of windpants with long sleeve shirts and when it got colder I ended up wearing a windsuit with a tee shirt or turtleneck. My turtle necks were usually a solid color. I hated the turtlenecks. But, I didn't mind being in windsuit because it was my favorite thing to wear. I loved how shiny and silky my suits looked. And I loved the swishy sound they made when I moved around.
matching outfit - July 22, 2017 - Report this comment
My parents made me wear little girl versions of these suits up until I was in 4th grade. In third grade my parents let me pick what I wanted to wear two days a week to school and the other three days they decided what I was going to wear. That year the winter was colder than normal. During the winter months, my parents made me wear a windpants and matching windvest with a fancy tee shirt or a turtleneck or windsuit with a tee shirt or turtle neck. I hated it because I didn't like hear myself swish around all day. Two of those three days, I had a class that I hated because I didn't like the teacher. I tried to skip the class, but my teacher always came and got me. One time I had on a pair of pink and black windpants with a matching hooded vest with a pink turtle neck and that teacher came and got me for class. She was in the same outfit and wanted everyone to know we were in the same outfit. We walked up and down the hall and everyone saw we were in the same outfit. Another time I was in a purple windsuit and a white turtle neck. That teacher came and got me and was wearing the same outfit. She was surprised we were dressed a like again. That time we had to walk outside around the track and everyone outside saw us dressed a like. I went home and cried. My parents didn't like me getting embrassed by that teacher and didn't make me wear the suits anymore.
turtle neck and jogging suit combo - July 26, 2017 - Report this comment
The jogging suit and turtleneck combo was really popular back in the 80's and 90's. Me and all of the other little girls' in my class were always sent to school in a white turtle neck and jogging suit.

When I was a small the only part about winter that I liked was the fact that it would cold enough for me to wear a jogging suit to school everyday.I liked how bright, colorful, shiny, and swishy these suits were. I usually wore a turtle neck with my suit. In first grade, I spent the school day in half of my jogging suit. My teacher didn't allow us to wear jackets in the classroom, even if it was part of our outfit. So, most days I felt naked being in my turtleneck and jogging pants. The suit didn't fell complete unless, I was wearing the jacket that came with my pants. I usually kept my jacket zipped up to the cleavage level since I wore turtlenecks with my suits most of the time. The following year, I started wearing my suits every day at the end of October. My teacher didn't allow to wear any type of jackets in the classroom and sometimes she'd make me and the other kids hang up our wind jackets. I always felt naked having to walk around in my turtle neck or long sleeve tee shirt and my wind pants.
jogging suit kid - September 11, 2017 - Report this comment
I remember seeing my classmates and teacher wearing these bright, multicolored, shiny, sliky, and swishy windsuits suits and wanted to wear them too. When the fall clothing came out my parents bought me some of these suits. When it was cold enough for me to wear one, my parents told me that it was could enough for me to wear a windsuit. I wore a bright pink windsuit with a with a pale pink turtle neck. I closed the door and got dressed. As soon as I got my suit on, I zipped it up to the cleavage level like everyone else wore. Then I stood in front of the mirror staring at myself in my shiny multicolored windsuit. After looking in the mirror, I wanted to have a few minutes to myself because I wanted to swish around. So, I walked around in my room hearing myself swishy. I wore these suits up until junior high school.
want to hear myself swishy - December 22, 2017 - Report this comment
@ jogging suit kid, I wore those suits when I was in Kidergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade. liked how those suits were shiny and silky. And I loved the swishy sound they made when I walked. I always wore jogging suits when it rained and on days we had PE. In the winter, I wore them full time with a turtle neck expect on PE days. When ever I wore a pair jogging pants or a complete jogging suit, I always had swishy time when I was getting ready for school. During swishy time, I'd shut my bed room door and walk around in my room for several minutes to hear myself swishy.

@ no jackets in the classroom, when it got close to the 100th day of school my second grade teacher had us decorate a shirt with 100 items to wear on the 100th day of school. I used a light purple tee shirt and put 100 foam animals on it. On the 100th day of school it was in January and I was in my jogging suits full time. I wore a new purple and teal jogging suit that I got for Christmas with my 100th day of school shirt. Normally we could wear jackets in the classroom, but when I got to school they were taking pictures of my class and other kids in different grades who decorated a shirt for the 100th day of school. Since I had a jacket on, I had to take it off because my shirt wouldn't have been seen other wise. It felt odd being in half a jogging suit for a little bit. But, it didn't take no time for me to adjust being in my 100th day of school shirt and my purple jogging suit pants, since I always took my jacket off during PE and put it on at the end of PE. During PE I was still able to hear myself swishy when my legs rubbed together during movement. I knew it would be the same way but I'd be without the jacket most of the day. After the 100th day of school, I liked going without the jacket and it gave me the idea to be in a pair of swishy jogging pants for the rest of the school year.

@turtle neck and jogging suit combo, one year we had a chilly fall with a lot of windy and rainy days and the winter was much colder than normal. In the school news letter, parents were advised to dress their kids warmer than normal. In the news letter, it suggested that students wore jogging suits everyday if they had more than one suit. And the letter mentioned that the jogging suit and turtle neck combo would work very well together. The school was even going to sell jogging suits with the school logo at low prices for students to buy more than one, and for parents who had more than one kid. Me and the other little girls were really excited about wearing a jogging suit to school everyday. When I got dressed the next morning my parents had me wear a white turtleneck with my pink and purple suit. I zipped my jacket up to the cleavage level and saw my white turtleneck really made my jogging suit stand out. When I got to school the other little girls were wearing white turtlenecks with their jogging suits too.

@ school jogging suits, during my 3rd grade year we had a lot of chilly weather in fall and the winter was much colder than normal. So, I wore a windsuit to school everyday shortly after fall break. I had wore the suits to school a couple of times a week in the previous years. And I wore the single pairs of windpants bought separately on days we had PE. But, I had never wore them to school full time before. I loved the fact that I would be wearing a windsuit to school fulltime, because they were my favorite thing to wear. I especially loved being in a pair of wind suit pants because I could hear myself swish around when my legs rubbed together when I was walking. On really cold days, my parents made me wear a white turtleneck with designs printed on them.

@ School jogging suits, when I was in first grade it was going to be really cold after Christmas break. I didn't want to wear sweatpants because they were really hot and I didn't want to wear knit pants because they were very tight. Since I wore windsuits a lot during the winter months, in kindergarten, my parents bought me windpants and complete windsuits. Since it was really cold my parents sent my back in long sleeves. On my first day back I wore navy windpants and a cream color floral tee shirt. The classroom was really hot and I had to push up my sleeves to stay comfortable. I would have preferred to have been in short sleeves, but I loved the fact that I was going to remain in windpants since they were my favorite type of pants to wear back in those days. They were bright, shiny, smooth, and super swishy. On days I was in windsuit my parents always made me wear a turtleneck with my suit. I liked being in the turtlenecks because the windsuit and turtleneck combo was really popular and it really made me stand out in my windsuit. I kept my zipper zipped up to the cleavage level since most of the time I was in a white turtleneck and I didn't want to get a stain on my turtleneck.

Some of my friends noticed that I was in a windsuit everyday after fall break. They loved wearing their suits to school as much as I did and they decided that they wanted to stay in their windsuits everyday with me. But once cold weather hit, their parents made them wear a turtleneck or long sleeve tee shirt with their windsuits, like my parents were having me wear. When we wore turtlenecks, it felt like it was part of our outfits and it felt odd walking around school in a turtleneck and windpants. So, we stayed in our turtlenecks and we zipped our jackets up to the cleavage level. On days we wore long sleeve tee shirts, we liked it better since we didn't feel like it was part of our outfit. Since other kids were coming to school in windpants and tee shirts. We usually hung our jackets on the back of our chairs and wore our shirts and windpants. One time my parents made me wear a white tee shirt with Winnie the Pooh on it, which was a shirt I hated. So, I kept my jacket zipped up as far as it would go so I wouldn't have to look at a shirt I hated.
