Women & Bicycles Tip: Bring Back The Romper!
This is part of our Women & Bicycles blog series, part of WABA’s initiative to build a stronger women’s bike community and get more women on bikes. These posts aren’t exclusive to women, but they’re produced with and through the Women & Bicycles’ programming. Click here to learn more and get involved. All the buzz over the Penny In Yo’ Pants #CycleHack has me buzzin over my personal preferred bike-friendly feminine formal wear: rompers. Rompers are lovely to bike in. I own six or seven. Rompers are like dresses except the bottom half is shorts or pants. They’re comfortable, lightweight, and dress-like plus you don’t have to worry about pulling a Marilyn Monroe or getting your skirt caught all up in yo’ wheel spokes. So, yes, by all means continue rocking your skirts and dresses on your commute, and if you haven’t worn a romper since 1987, bring it back!
