Shellsuits really stand out with the white turtle neck.

These suits were still popular in the late 90's which was when I was in primary school. After I started kindergarten, I was seeing my friends and teachers wear these suits a lot and after hearing them swish around, I decided that I wanted to be in windsuits too. My parents bought me a bright pink suit and a dark pink suit to wear to school. I wore my bright pink suit to school and I enjoyed hearing myself swishy. I decided to wear both of my suits every week because I wanted to be able to swish around school with my friends. At Christmas that year, I got a bunch of windsuits. I was really excited to go back to school after Christmas break because I decided that I was going to wear a windsuit to school everyday all through winter. 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. But, I eventually got used to it because I'd still be able to hear myself swishy when I was walking down the hall, got up to sharpen my pencil, at recess, and during gym class. At the end of that year, me and my best friend loved wearing our windsuits and wanted to be able to hear ourselves swishy every day. So, we told our parents that we only wanted turtle necks, tee shirts, windpants, and windsuits to wear to school during second grade. During the warmer weather we wore black or navy windpants with a pink tee shirt. When it got colder we were in pink windsuits with a white turtle neck, or we wore a navy or black windsuit with a pink tee shirt or a pink turtle neck.

I loved these suits as a kid. I wore them every where I went. When I wore these suits, I always wore a turtleneck.

At my primary school, we had PE twice a week. On the days we had PE we were required to wear tennis shoes, a shellsuit, and a tee shirt to school. Our suits had to be red, blue, black, navy, or purple. And our tee shirt had to match the colors of our suits.

After seeing my teachers and classmates come to school in shellsuits and shellsuit pants during kindergarten in first grade, I wanted to wear them too. When I went school clothes shopping I tried on a lot of little girl versions of shellsuits. And my parents purchased me some suits to wear to school. I decided that was going to wear a shellsuit to school as soon as I got a chance. During the first month of school, there was a day when it was pouring down rain and my parents told me I could wear a shellsuit to school. Since it was my first time in a shellsuit, I decided that I was going to stand in the mirror and see what I looked like in my suit and then I was going to walk around in my room for a little while because I wanted to hear myself swishy, like everyone else did when they were in their suits. I wore a pink and purple shellsuit with a pink, purple, and white striped tee shirt. I put the pants and tee shirt on first because I wanted to enjoy the first time I'd hear myself swishy in my shellsuit pants. As soon as my pants were on I started walking around my room for several minutes and I loved hearing myself swishy. Finally, I put my jacket on and stood and looked at myself in my shellsuit for awhile. When I got to school, other kids were in shellsuits too. After wearing my suit to school, I decided that I wanted to wear a pair of shellsuit pants to school everyday just so I could swishy all day. For the remainder of the year, I wore shellsuit pants to school and when it got colder I wore the complete shellsuit to school everyday.
