Gendered clothing is so passรฉ.

As hunter-gatherers, men and women wore the same clothing. Even into the advancement of horseback riding, all genders wore the same clothing in order to move quickly, defend themselves and ride efficiently. It wasn’t until the Greeks that Europeans began dressing differently, as women were no longer deemed necessary to hunt as a pack. When women lost their right to hunt, they lost their right to pants and other forms of autonomy.

Fast forward to the modern age in North America. Less than a century ago, women began regularly wearing pants during World War II as factory workers. Even then, it wasn’t until the Nixon-era that First Ladies and women politicians began wearing them. Now, many women and feminine-folks cannot imagine life without jeans or leggings.

What once seemed strange for some eventually became the norm. So why is everyone making a big deal about the RompHim?

It wasn’t so long ago thatย one-pieces were worn by all genders. The jumpsuit was borne of the military-industrial complex, an easy-to-wear garment for soldiers and the romper was for, well, children and babies. The origins have mostly been erase by pop culture. A wardrobe staple in the ’70s as a leisure suit or jumpsuit for men and a playsuit or catsuit for women, these one-piece outfits were en vogue for all. Once again, the fashion world is creating space for all genders to embrace an easy-to-wear piece of clothing — with universal difficulty of bathroom use for everyone.ย 

Jokes aside, these babes of all genders and sizes show just how fashionable a romper can be.
