'Onesie' in French?!

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by birdstock, Jan 10, 2013.

  1. Is it 'un uni-pyjama?
    And the lovely bunch have now requested the word for a 'skort' (apparently PE skirts and shorts now come as one item). I am so old [​IMG]

    Une combinaison ( can add the word pyjama as a suffix to be clearer )
    I only heard the word ' onesie' on Sky the other day and had to find out what it meant..............I'm in France, BTW !
    A skort is une jupe-short (have even seen it called un skort
     
  3. It's "une grenouillère" IN French
     
  4. I agree on grenouillère!

    What about jupe-culotte then?

    Une grenouillère isn't even used for babies any more, has never been used for the adult version (was popular in the 90's in France for a brief period ) which were called simply une combinaison. I remember it well as we bought one for a friend. Can't believe they're out now in Britain.
    For up to date vocab on clothing, look at La Redoute.
     
  7. I used to call it "une grenouillère" too!
     
  8. Wow, thank you! [​IMG]
