Over-Mumus: the good, the bad, and the fugly

Oh, how I loved Blanche. I hope I'm as hot as her in 40 years.
I guess I'm unsure what an "over-mumu" is, exactly. Over or under, isn't a mumu simply a mumu?

I picture the traditional Hawaiian muumuu, like this:



And, LOL at Mrs. Roper!!!

"Golden Girls" was the first thing I thought of when trying to figure out what this over-mumu could be.

If ever a woman deserved a boy toy, it's Mrs. Roper.

Also, the name "Norman Fell": also a sentence.

Okay, I think I understand what you mean now. But wouldn't that be more like a caftan?

I thought that a muumuu didn't open in the front.

So it's an over-muumuu because it goes over muumuus, not because it's a muumuu you wear over other clothes? I'm still so confused...

It's really complex! I've been on the case for a week now, and I still feel so.....uncertain.

A muumuu by Miu Miu?


(Is this picture more or less risque than that I posted of Mrs. Roper?)
Sort of CG sometimes, but not really
