I guess I am going to be the one to throw the curve ball in this discussion. As soon as I saw this trend coming I immediately thought of the grunge era back in the late 80s and early 90s. It was a period that defined American Designer trash and I think that it is horrible that it has resurface. I am not sure why designers are making new renditions of this look but it not very appealing on anyone..not even toddlers!!! Well maybe a three year old could get away with them if their mothers suffer them that way..but no grown person should be caught dead in these nasty little praire costumes. I don't care what kind of detail you put on them or what designer label is on the inside...OVERALLS ARE YUCKY!

I respectfully disagree! I think curvy girls can look very sexy in traditional bib overalls.

love it tang. Completely agree. As long as it fits you well, I don't think the shape/size of the bib will work against you.
