Bellbotttom trousers were what the well dressed teenager was wearing in the sixties.These trousers flared out from the knees and could be as wide as you wanted them to be in fact the wider the better. They had to be worn with high wedge shoes or platforms and had to cover the shoes completely. In the eighties we had flares and the nineties and today we have bootcut trousers, they all came from the bellbottoms and we had them first.
"There's a new dance that is going around called the bump, do the bump" We all loved this dance in the seventies and it was a jolly good workout. The song was sung by a group called Kenny and we bumped hips, arms and bottoms with our dance partner as we sang along to their song.
Here's a masterclass on "The Bump" and no, it's not my husband and I in the video although we could do it every bit as good.
