Ah, I should have specified America. My bad! 

 

In America, tracksuits started being worn outside of sports in the 60s and became incredibly popular in the 70s.  The shell suit, a tracksuit made out of nylon, came in the late 80s and was popular with the hip hop and break-dancing scene.  The return of fabric track suits in the 90s is attributed to rappers.

Well its not like we do not have baths here :)

Just the bathroom and toilet are usually separated. Sometimes the bathroom also has an extra toilet, but the toilet is generally a separated "room".

In the US, sometimes the toilet is in a separate room from the rest of the bath/vanity area, but usually only in the master bathroom within a master bedroom.  Many homes will also have a room with just a toilet and sink, often referred to as the 'powder room' - and as Love mentioned, for real estate purposes, it is considered a "1/2 bathroom".

I remember. They were also referred to as pantsuits. They were really popular among the grammar school kids in the 90s. Middling daughter wore them all the time in winter.

And a bathroom with just a bath/shower and sink but no toilet, that would be 2/3 bathroom? :)

I have two half bathrooms then, but no bath... this is getting confusing

While there are two main terms used, there is another but it isn't 2/3, it's 3/4.

I've never seen a house with a bathroom without a toilet, in the US anyway.  For US real estate, I'm not sure it even counts as a bathroom if it doesn't have a toilet. Even the rooms where the toilet is separated, it is still considered to be part of the bathroom itself, just with a door between it and the main part of the bathroom.  

The usual configurations are: 
  Full Bath - Toilet, sink, bathtub, shower (shower can be within the tub or separte).
  3/4 Bath - Toilet, sink, shower without tub or tub without shower
  1/2 Bath - Toilet and sink only

  1/2 Bath - Toilet and sink only

So if my baffroom has both tub and separate shower (and sink and toilet), it still only counts as full baff?

I have a WC with just the toilet and a sink, and a separate (not just a door, really separate) a bathroom with a shower and sink. Quite common here. Funny how that can be so different.

What you have, in US terms, is one full bath if the rooms are connected. If they are completely separate (like in different parts of the home) then you would have 2 half baths.
