Wikipedia defines it the best. It's women's garments for the lower body!

Women's baggy underpants fastened to just below or above the knee are also known as "bloomers" (or as "knickers" or "directoire knickers"). They were most popular in the 1910s and 1920s but continued to be worn by older women for several decades thereafter. Often the term "bloomers" has been used interchangeably with the pantalettes worn by women and girls in the mid 19th century and the open leg knee length drawers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The original bloomers...
were an article of women's clothing invented by Elizabeth Smith Miller of Peterboro, New York an early pioneer of the vulcanized rubber girdle, but popularized by Amelia Bloomer in the early 1850s (hence the name, a shortening of "Bloomer suit"). They were long baggy pants narrowing to a cuff at the ankles (worn below a skirt), intended to preserve Victorian decency while being less of a hindrance to women's activities than the long full skirts of the period (see Victorian dress reform).

Did you know there's even a "National Underwear Day", holiday?  I blogged it here


Well back to the question.
Do you blog in your bloomers? Well it looks like 99% of us do. We surf the Internet in our undies, socialize on facebook in them, read the news with them, blog on bloggers and tweet on twitter...all in our undies. :) Giggle~ Come on now be honest... Do you blog in your bloomers?

Oh Pam! Your blog makes me laugh. It wasn't what I expected to see today at all. I thought you were blogging about pirates.

I wish I could blog in my bloomers but I only blog while I'm at work and that wouldn't go over. Fun post

Only in the mornings, and then it's in my PJs. After that I'm dressed for the day, and my days got all of the way until 2 in the morning!
