I was born in 1987, but my parents made me wear little-girl versions of these in bright, obnoxious colors up through about 1995. We wore them every year in Disney World in December, so it's highly documented on film, unfortunately... Of course, I had the pony tail DIRECTLY on top of the head to match... with obnoxiously large scrunchie. Oh, the style!!!

Everyone should try to wear a shellsuit with singlet inside. You may also waer shellsuit without any innerwear. So smashing and cool. Try now, especially for cool guy! :-)

these brings back instant memories! I use to have a couple of full pairs. the jacket and the matching pants. (nylon lining not cotton) I had this fetish of wearing them out for the day wearing absolutly nothing on under the suit! What a feeling it was walking around in public shopping feeling the cool nylon fabric against the body! WOW! and the pants were just so comfortable to lounge around in. I wish I could go back and relive those days. anybody els do the same? like to hear your replies! Cheers

Hi! Sorry for my English. I'm from Moscow Russia. I have fetish for ht soft nylon shellsuit (windsuits, nylon tracksuit. What is the difference between them?). I really like when girls wears shellsuits. I created small community in LJ (windsuitfetish), & also flickr channel (shellsuitfetish).

When I wrote girls I mean adult young female (18-35), of course. I understand that word “maid” is obsolete English word.

Yerrr right! You lot hate shell-suits! Be honest, how many of you would buy one today? You're walking past a sports shop or have found one online for 20 Dollors/Euros/Pounds would you buy it? I bet you would be tempted. So STFU cuz Shell-Suits are brilliant and you know it!
