                Best thing about Snake Belts was that you could put a towel on your head and pretend to be an Arab too!! (though i was never sure why I wanted to be an Arab but hey, it was the 70's!!) I do remember however a tale of a party when I was at School and a guy was running about with just a pair of brown and cream piped y fronts on...and a snake Belt!!! Bet the ladies loved him!!!

                      Those were the ones where you had the end dangling about a foot down your leg? There were red, pink & yellow ones and the had shiney metal at the end of the 'dangly' bit?

                      If it's the same thing they were called 'funky belts' here.

                            i hated my snake belt, so much so, I've bought my daughter one (she's 4), just to keep the cycle going. I also had a dangly belt, but for some reason our school went through a phase of plaiting string together, dying it with food colouring and wearing that!... and yep the colouring did run in the rain!

                              Snake belts?

                              This is probably going to sound a little stupid, but I saw an old photo of me and my sister back in the late 70s and it made me think of these. My sister worked as administrator for a while at the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead, and had a pager and various bits of nurses uniform she was supposed to wear (but not the whole thing, as she wasn't qualified.

                              So in this photo, she's wearing one of these:



                              Which every nurse wore back then, and I was wearing one of these:



                              Which every boy wore back then. Anyone else have any fond or horrific memories of the kinds of belts they wore back in the day?
