Darling Cabaret Kitten Romper

Welcome to the Retro Romper Revival!

Fashion editor Tracey Duncan recently stated: "Remember all those adorable playsuits you had as a kid? Those little onesies that took you from the playground to the dinner table in easy breezy preschool style? Well, they’re back, thank god, and for grownups, if that’s what we’re calling ourselves these days!"

Broad Minded Clothing has dreamed up a darling new delight! The "Cabaret Kitten" romper with cuffed shorts, serious boning in the bodice, and two pockets. Top quality stretch satin/sateen fabric. Also features hidden side zipper and detachable halter straps.

The Cabaret Kitten romper is perfect for burlesque dancers, performers, or anyone who has a thing for vintage, retro style. We personally love it when worn with fishnet stockings and high heels.
