EtymologyEdit

From English bloomer (attributive of bloomers).[1][2][3][4] Compare also パジャマ (pajama, pajamas), ブリーフ (burīfu, briefs), パンティー (pantī, panties) and other words for garments that derive from the attributive (singular) forms of the English etyma, in contrast with some cases such as パンツ (pantsu, pants).
