Swishy 2nd grade Student - July 19, 2017 - Report this comment
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.
No Jackets in the Classroom - July 28, 2017 - Report this comment
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.
