Would You Rather: Have Your Husband Show Up In Meggings Or Wearing A Nubrella?

Was this post inspired by a search term on the blog?


Lisa: Oh. My. God. Someone just found our blog by typing “husband wearing meggings”. I can’t even make that up.

Ashley: BWAH HA HA HA! That is so awesome in every way.

Lisa: You just have to wonder what sort of desperation would lead a poor woman to search that. Was it a wife looking to find out if her man is fashion forward?

Ashley: I think she wants to know if meggings are legal grounds for divorce!

Lisa: Can you even imagine if your Robert busted out some meggings?

Ashley: Honestly, no. The only thing that might be worse is if he decided to start sporting a Nubrella.

Lisa: GAH! I can’t even decide which would be more humiliating…to me!

Ashley: WAIT JUST A MINUTE! I have got the next Would You Rather scenario. This is PERFECT. Meggings vs. Nubrella.

Okay, y’all, so we know school is getting ready to start all across the country in a matter of days/weeks. Everyone knows that with the start of school comes Parent’s Night (Open House) in the classroom. An evening where everyone scrambles to find childcare and rushes off to hear all about what their children will be learning that year, while throwing in a little mixing and mingling among other parents and the teachers. Add in a few sign-up sheets for classroom events, and you have yourself an evening of elbowing your way to the front so you can secure the paper good sign-ups fun!

More often than not, my hubby has to meet me at these events straight from work, which got me thinking about this scenario:

It is Parent’s Night. You arrive at your child’s classroom and wait for your mate to rush in at the last minute claiming that he forgot it was Open House and spent too much time updating his fantasy football team had a conference call that ran late. You look up as he makes his way in the door to see that he is wearing meggings.

To meet your child’s teacher for the first time.

To be among classroom parents, perhaps many you don’t even know yet.


You are waiting outside the classroom, tapping your foot impatiently and constantly checking your phone to see if he has texted to say that he is parking and will be there any second. You happen to glance up and see a man walking toward you wearing some sort of contraption on his head. And then you realize. That is your husband. Wearing a Nubrella on his head.

A Nubrella.

And it is not raining. He is just wearing it in case the weather turns. And this man is about to go and meet your child’s teacher. And chat it up with other parents. All the while wearing a Nubrella on his head.

So, which is it?

Would you rather have your husband show up to back to school night wearing meggings or with a nubrella on his head?

This might help you make up your mind…

Meggings or Nubrella Roberts

You’re welcome, guys! ๐Ÿ˜€




Would You Rather: Have Your Husband Show Up In Meggings Or Wearing A Nubrella? — 120 Comments

  1. OMG…what a horrific decision….I …OMG I can’t, LOLOLOL
    love how you put your hubby’s faces in there…awesome.

    I think I would choose meggings for hubby, with a big sweatshirt, and boots…perhaps not too noticeable…though he would say nutbrella….LOL

    now if my hubby was Jackson Rathbone…oh yeah he could wear meggings with NO SHIRT *wink wink*

    • LOL Allie! His shirt would be whatever we had worn to work…so if that is long enough for you then meggings it is! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. How the hell do I make this decision. Seriously this is a hard one and not sure which is worse. I might say the meggings, because the other option seriously is just too awful to even be able to look away. By the way, those pictures of your husbands had me cracking up. Great job ladies!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • So glad you enjoyed the pictures Janine! Lisa is a rock star with the pictures! We are putting you down for meggings! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Again, the Queens of photoshop! I love that last pic! Did ur hubbies see that?? Lol! Ok so after a long debate in my mind, this one was tough! I decided the nubrella is a winner. My husband would never live down the meggings my hood!

  4. Nubrella for sure! You will recall that I kind of see the utility of the Nubrella, if not totally on board with the design; Hubby wears a headlight when camping – this seems like a pretty close progression… Meggings? Just no. NO.

  5. oh gosh… usually I feel strongly one way or another, but this one is awful!! They are both so bad. I have to use process of elimination, because there is no way I would live if Whim showed up in meggings. I guess, somehow we could find a way to overcome that umbrella thing, but meggings??

  6. I will spend all day trying to get those images out of my mind. I will pick the meggings, but I will cheat and say he has to be wearing an overcoat too. Hopefully no one will look down.

  7. I think I’ve got to go with the Nubrella. Wait, does he have to wear that while talking or can he take it off once he gets in the building?If he can take it off then Nubrella it is! If he can’t then I go with the meggings. In black. Either spandex so they look like running tights or leather – because I would laugh so hard to see my husband in tight leather pants it would be worth it. I hope if he’s in leather meggings he’d have the good sense to add eyeliner and a tight black t-shirt. If you’re going, go all the way! Right?

    • Oh no, he has to wear it THE ENTIRE EVENING. No taking it off. So we are marking you down for meggings…and definitely go with leather ones…he can totally own the room! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Hahaha. Meggings. And the only reason I say that is because I have seen people in all sorts of get up at open houses…and because my husband will do stuff for a prank. You guys are inspiring me…I might have to dig the picture of him and his friend wearing dresses to soccer practice. I didn’t even have to add his head to the picture. They wore the dresses. Out in public.

      • Pretty sure ladies that we will need both of those pictures emailed to us right away…you know, FOR the blog! ๐Ÿ˜‰
        And also, Michelle, we are counting on you to get your hubby to show up at soccer this year in meggings!

  9. Considering my hubby is techie geek, I’d say Nubrella. I can’t imagine him in meggings. Not even in my worst nightmare. So grateful all my kids are grown and I now have grandchildren who can be humiliated by their own parents.

  10. This is fantastic! I would go with Nubrella. The weirdos in this town would go gaga over it and the darned thing would sell out.

    Plus, if my hubby wore the Meggins, his little leg hairs would be popping out between the fabric and that is never fashion forward!!!!!!

    • LOL Charlotte! SO glad you enjoyed…we honestly both were cracking up when we were talking about it just doing the mental picture of our hubbies wearing either one! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. LOVE the pics of your hubbies! They pull off the meggings & nubrella in style!

    This is a tough one, but I’m going with meggings. My husband is a runner, so maybe people will just think they’re running tights. Although that’s not really plausible either since he wears shorts in the dead of winter.

  12. Bahaha! You ladies have done it again! I can always count on you for my morning laugh! I will have to say I would rather my better half sport the “Nubrella” for sure!!! The meggings are just a huge NO NO!!!! Thanks for sharing! ~Leah~

  13. Either scenario would scar you for life, but I’d definitely rather him show up with the nubrella. The thought of everyone seeing my hubby’s…bottom half in skin tight meggings grosses me out, especially if people stared or hit on or laughed, etc. I can handle the embarassment of the nubrella and maybe even say he is conducting a science experiment or some such nonsense that would make it ok, but the meggings? There is no coming back from that. Ever.

  14. I can’t stop giggling. I’d have to go with nubrella because my husband is already somewhat known for being a sci-fi geek and we can just pretend it’s some Star Trek contraption. Also if they don’t already know he’s a sci-fi geek, this would be a good introduction to the life-sized Han Solo out of Carbonite we have in our dining room overlooking our dining room table.
    There’s also a life-sized Yoda (read: not that big) in our basement.

    • Yeah, it sounds like it would be the perfect intro for your hubby…in fact, I am pretty sure we will need you to have him do it at Scarlett’s school just for the giggles! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. OMG!!!! I am laughing so hard right now!!! I have to tell you…if hubs even thought about sporting meggings in or outside the house I would have him arrested. I can only imagine those skinny legs in meggings – yikes! The nubrella is so corny I can’t even right now. Big whooping nope to both. But if I must choose one I’m going with the nubrella. At least I can make up some sort of head injury story to justify why he’s wearing a satellite dish on his head.

    • I swear to God, I BURST out laughing at your last sentence!! Even just typing this comment I am crying with laughter!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Yikes – I’m going with the meggings – maybe we could be twinkies if I wore leggings!!! I’m pretty sure that it would take me a long time to get the image erased – I would look at him different for ever after I think!!

  17. Funny! I think meggings are worse, they would think hubby was some kind of perv, where as the nubrella would make them think he was just “slow”.

  18. Tears from laughing (and choking on my coffee) when I saw these pictures. I’d have to go with meggings because they would just make it look like Peter has ABSOLUTELY no fashion sense. The Nubrella (especially if it wasn’t even raining) would make him look just straight up crazy. Either way the teacher would probably give him a pass on signing up for any volunteer spots!

    • LOL Mo! And wouldn’t he thank you later for getting him out of all volunteer gigs! This comment made me burst out laughing!

  19. Oh my Gah-ah-osh!!! The faces on them! Seriously, did you guys just know that your husbands would be perfect “man” equin models for these items!! I am dying right now of uncontrollable laughter. I vote for the meggings simply because, holy hot legs, Ashley’s husband. But I do believe Stacy and Clinton are finishing up what not to wear, so there is definitely room on the networks for some kinda new wardrobe and accessory show. I think I know two new hosts. ๐Ÿ™‚ hahahahahahahah times infinity!!!

    • LOL Karen! Our hubbies have no control over what we photoshop them onto! ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Glad you enjoyed this!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. Images of my husband in meggings is so comical that if he showed up in them I’d give him a standing ovation for having the balls to wear them…and since he’d be wearing meggins, they could probably all see ’em anyways….

    • OH MY GOD, one of my favorite comments EVER! Laughed so loud that I am pretty sure my neighbors heard me!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. Ha! I was totally going with the nubrella until you threw in the “And it’s not raining” line!! I think I still have to go with that one though. The Nubrella would look pretty crazy, but the meggings are just scary!

    • I do feel like the key to the whole nubrella part is that it can’t be raining. Otherwise, he has more of an excuse! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  22. Nubrella. Leo is 6’3, 6’4 and meggings on him would be…um…I don’t want to imagine it because then I’d be stuck with that image in my head. Then again, being that tall, he’d look ridiculous with the Nubrella. Either way, I would not speak to him for a very long time for embarrassing me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Nubrella for sure! I’d just say he forgot to take his meds that day.

    There is just too much risk with the meggings. It’s like long legged speedos

  24. HAHAHAHAH oh my god you guys, I’m dying!! I would rather have him wear meggings, because then I would just tell everyone that he was the only straight ballerina in the history of ballerinas. And then I would put a spare change of pants in his car so it would NEVER happen again. But I’m so jealous you got someone to search for that and find your blog. You guys rock.

  25. I don’t know what I am laughing harder at- the choices or the fact that you put “elbowing your way to the front so you can secure the paper good sign-ups”. SOOOOOo funny and SOOOOOO true!!!
    Oh this is good. So FREAKING good.
    I just can’t decide.

    (Still laughing!!!)

  26. Hahaha that is great, I hope I never have to see my husband in either of these but I would go with the nubrella. I didn’t even know meggings existed so that would be a bit terrifying to see my husband walking up in a pair.

  27. Yโ€™all are just mean sometimes! Letโ€™s seeโ€ฆmy husbandโ€™s ridiculously huge calves would be too obvious in meggings; and he would get the stinkeye from teachers as the nubrella would scratch up and mar the freshly painted walls. That said, I could just blame the nubrella on the quirks of a nerdy husband, so I suppose I have to choose theโ€ฆgulpโ€ฆnubrella. (Itโ€™s a good thing these choices are purely hypothetical!)

    • HA HA HA Leslie! We totally wish they *weren’t* hypothetical sometimes, just for the photographic evidence! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  28. I can’t believe you got a google hit from meggings! Bahahahah! But I can! And yeah, I think i’d vote for the meggings, especially if my next husband is that 32 year old guy named Jack who loves dogs ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Omigoodness…too funny. I so wish I had the time to photoshop my hubby’s head on those…but for now I’ll go with the nubrella. My husband is a pretty big guy, so we’d be safer with the rain deterrent. Ha!

    • You should totally photoshop your hubby’s head on them Heather…imagine how much he would love that! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  30. Ladies, I am sorry I am just now seeing this, but, OMG…. They both just are hideous…. Your poor fellas heads on those awful meggings & nubrellas bodies…. Lol. Ladies you have outdone yourselves again. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • They are both really hideous, right Amber! ๐Ÿ™‚ We know! Yeah, our hubbies really appreciate the blog after this post! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  31. I am so in love with you guys, it’s ridiculous. Also, I will never rag on my husband again for wearing his college cargo pants. Seems so silly mild in comparison…

  32. That’s a great scene you’ve just created. You may want to get some sort of a copyright before Hollywood steals it for their next family comedy! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Umm, I’d rather have people stare at a piece of junk over my husband’s head rather than stare at his personal junk. That’s mine! I’m just saying.
    So I’m going with the nubrella ๐Ÿ™‚

    • HA HA HA! Hollywood would TOTALLY steal this scenario, right?! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Your comment totally made me giggle!

  33. Oh my gosh, I’m just now seeing this post. I don’t know. I almost want to say meggings because maybe people won’t look down to see his pants? I mean, the nubrella is pretty obvious. But my husband is a big guy. Both would just be terrible.

  34. My husband would definitely be a nubrella kind of guy. He is uber prepared for all circumstances. That and he’s way to redneck to have his junk defined or ankles exposed unless he is allowed to carry a sword. Then men in tights are perfectly acceptable.

  35. Haha! Well, my husband wouldn’t be caught dead wearing either, but I would probably say I’d prefer him in meggings. I’d just stand real close to him and look at his face so that I couldn’t see the bottom half of him. But he would probably say the Nubrella. This was a hard one though!
