It might be the case that just about everyone has a onesie now but I must have been in the small minority until quite recently. I bought my onesie about a month ago from Tu in Sainsbury's and I haven't looked back. I love it. Mine cost £20 and it's basically light grey with small white stars all over the front back, legs and arms. It's got a long zip up the front and a hood which is huge and covers the whole of my head and most of my face. It's so warm and snuggly and I love nothing better than to come back from college and have a bath and then put it on.
There are loads of onesie's around now and a lot of them vary in price and quality. I saw a lovely one in Topshop last week which was bright green but cost £34 but I couldn't afford it or justify the price so I left it one the shelf. They are very versatile and though not so great for summer nightwear they are smashing for winter colder months when you want to warm up quickly.
Onesie's are not the most glamorous of outfits but they are practical and I have been known to keep mine on all day Sunday when I am writing a long essay.. The downside of the onesie is that you have to take it almost completely off if you need to use the loo and when your bathroom is freezing cold it makes it unpleasant sitting there with nothing on your top half and freezing to death.
I'm pleased with my onesie and it's been washed loads of times and looks fab still and never needs to be ironed. I am tempted to buy another brighter one to change into when this one is in the wash and I hope they never go out of fashion because I love them so much.
Back when onesies first starting appearing in stores I looked and thought I wouldn't be seen dead in what is essentially an adult baby grow! However on Boxing Day we always get together with extended family and one of my cousins thought it would be funny for all of us younger lot to get a Christmas onesie and get changed in to it on Boxing Day to give my Grandma a bit of a giggle and so that is how I came to own my first onesie!
Onesies are as I said above basically a babygrow for adults. Since they were first introduced the market has grown and they are available to purchase online and in some high street stores as well. There are some that are made from a jogging suit type material which people use just as casual wear and I have seen people out shopping in these in the past! They were mainly intended as casual wear for at home and as far as I can tell for sleeping though and this is the only thing I have ever worn my onesie for apart from the dress up session one Boxing Day!
All of the onesies I have purchased have actually come from Primark where they cost around £10-£12 which isn't a bad price to pay. The jogging suit type ones seem to cost double or more depending on the brand you are buying really. There are thinner ones available on the market for people who would like to wear them all year round. My onesies were all a fleecey type material and what is great about them is that they are warm and thus keep you warm at winter. The fact that they have feet in make it a full cosy thing to wear and some even have hoods as well to keep you even warmer! I do find that they come up big and that the feet are always gigantic on the onesies I buy and as I only have a size four shoe size they can be too large on my foot. The Primark ones seem to shrink a little after being washed lots of times but this suits me personally but obviously wouldn't suit everyone!
The main issue I find with onesies is that when you need the toilet in the middle of the night you have to unzip yourself and take your top half out of the onesie to sit on the toilet which can be a bit of a shock when you are just out of bed and it is freezing in the bathroom! The other issue with onesies is frankly how unsexy they are! I'm single and so really it doesn't matter what I wear for bed but I have actually come full circle with the onesies again in the couple of years they have been popular and I wouldn't wear mine anymore! They aren't fashionable in the slightest but they did serve me a purpose for a couple of years in the winter months whilst I was less bothered about how I looked. I do think though that I looked like a telletubbie in a onesie!
There are onesies available for children too and my son does like them but he tends to get warm at night and strip off from it. He does like wearing them after school though in the winter because they are comfortable and keep him warm.
I think that really it comes down to personal preference with onesies. I have seen quite a lot in sales recently which made me think maybe their popularity is dwindling somewhat but I expect primark will have more Christmas themed ones in on the run up to the festive period. I started off hating them, then found they were comfortable and warm for winter nights but now I am back to thinking I wouldn't wear one again! Each to their own though I think and there is no denying they do keep you warm!
Thank you for reading my review!
A onesie is basically an adult baby grow and there are lots of different brands and designs.
Some are extremely expensive and some are a reasonable price. Onesies aren't quite as popular as they were a few years ago but I know a lot of people who still wear them and I still wear mine at least a few days a week. I've even seen celebrities post pictures of themselves wearing their onesies on twitter so there is no doubting that they're a big trend.
I bought my first onesie from Primark probably around 2 and a half years ago maybe longer. At the time I bought it because I was going to a friends fancy dress party for Halloween and everyone was planning on wearing onesies, and I thought it would be an easy costume, but when I realised just how comfortable it was I began wearing it instead of pyjamas!
The onesie I had was just blue and white with paw prints of the sleeves and a little dog motif on the chest, but there were lots of other designs including hooded onesies, devil onesies, tiger onesies, the list is endless! I think I paid about £12 for it which I think was a bargain and it lasted me for ages. Last year though I decided to get rid of it because the material wasn't very soft anymore and it had faded quite a lot and looked tatty so I decided to give it to the charity shop.
My Mum and Dad ended up getting me a new one from Christmas from F&F (I believe it was around £16 but I'm not certain). This was awful quality - thin material, odd fit (tight around the arms and not very generous in sizing) and after about 3 times wearing it there was a rip on the front of it. I then decided to buy another primark onesie which is lovely quality - thick, soft, cosy, fleecy.
It is extremely easy to just pop on and relax in, although going to the toilet is a slight nightmare and takes longer than usual because you need to take the whole thing off and then put it back on again! Also the zip sometimes starts to come undone by itself especially if I have pyjamas on underneath but it only takes 2 seconds to pull it back up so its not a problem. My current onesie has got attached bits for my feet but some don't have this, I prefer the ones with the feet as it saves me from wearing slippers and its comfier.
All in all I think onesies are great, they're warm and really fun looking, they can be used as a fancy dress outfit or just as pyjamas, and mine keeps me a lot warmer than an average pair of pyjamas. In the really cold weather I would wear mine over the top of my pyjamas which kept me extremely warm and cosy!
I'd definitely reccomend onesies, they are great in my opinion!!
Since I work as a carer I always come home and get pretty much straight in the shower, I don't see the point in putting an outfit on just to sit in the house by the time i've had a shower so have always just put my pyjamas on so my Mam decided it would be a great idea to buy me a onesie for Christmas.
Onesies are available all over the place now and they varu greatly in price, there are plain ones and character ones and even ones to make you look like an animal yourself. My onesie is plain and it's purple in colour which is one of my favourite colours, it's material is fleecy so it is really lovely and warm. Both my daughters also have oneises and there is nothing better than the three of us snuggling on the sofa together in them as they are so comfortable.
I find onesies really keep you warm and one of my bug bares with pyjamas is when the top part rides up your back and you get a draught which of course you can't get with a onesie. One major problem for me with the onesie is that unlike babies babygros that fasten with poppers the one I have fastens with a zip and means that to go to the toilet I have to take the whole thing down which them means getting cold.
I don't actually sleep in my onesie as I get too hot through the night in fleece and so have to change into normal pyjamas but for cuddling on the sofa and helping to keep the heating bill down I think they are brilliant. My youngest daughter is 2 and her onesie has feet in although it does have little rubbery pads on the feet to prevent slipping as this can be an issue with the ones with feet.
I love my onesie and when I next need some pjs I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one, I find the onsie very comfortable and it keeps you toasty warm too, I would suggest trying on a onesier befor buying it as if you are tall like myself it can be difficult to find one with long enough legs when you sit.
About 4 months ago I was wandering through Primark and saw a really nice, thick spotted onesie. My sister bought one on eBay and whenever I visited her she looked really snug and wanting to also enjoy this luxury I decided to get one too. I have to say I absolutely LOVE mine and at the best of times I hardly want to take it off!
A onesie is basically like a baby's sleepsuit but suitable for adults! It is an all in one which usually comes with a foot compartment. I like mine because it saves time when home as I am always warm when chilling on my sofa at home and I don't need a blanket. Covering about 85% of my body means I can walk about at home freely and always be snug and cosy!
However there are a few downsides to the onesie...
1. Going to the toilet
Going to the toilet is not as efficient as if I were a baby with poppers down below to give a flap for me to sit down. Unfortunately I have to unzip the whole thing and practically remove it down to my knees and then sit down on the loo which leaves me really cold! To try and combat this I tend to wear a vest top underneath so my boobs aren't too cold (as I generally wear this completely naked except for knickers underneath - sorry if this is too much info!) and then as soon as I'm finished I am quick to put it back on again!
2. No pockets
This could be an issue solely with my onesie but it really is a pain in the tushy that this has no pockets and so I quite like to listen to music on my phone whilst I wash the dishes with ear phones but with no pockets I have to wear a little shoulder bag with my phone inside haha! I know I look completely mad in my house but it's something I need to do so I can actually wash the dishes and not be bored to death!
3. Can get quite hot
Ok so they are snug and warm but I can't sleep in it all night or I will wake up a stinky sweaty beast! It's lovely to potter around the house in, but sleeping in one is slightly overbearingly suffocating (again my personal opinion) and with covers aswell it's all just a bit too much. It could be because mine is quite thick and fleecy but I think even a thin one wouldn't be great. I am a person who needs at least a bit of air, so sleeping in any kind of all in one is just a bit too much.
4. They are for indoors!
I am no fashionista and I don't like to judge people but I really don't agree with wearing them outside. Sure everyone is entitled to their own look, but I really think it looks quite tacky! I can't deny I have popped to my local corner shop or so with pyjamas on underneath my coat on the odd occasion, but I wouldn't dream of going out for the day in my onesie!
A onesie usually costs about £10-£25 depending on where you buy one so they are relatively reasonably priced. I do love them and think they are a fab idea and wish I had got one before! I would totally recommend them for anyone who wants a fun, snuggly and warm pyjama or lounging home wear.
What a odd thing they are. It was a few years ago I first started seeing these on sale - and thought they would be a weird 5 minute wonder like tulip and rara skirts - but no - they are still as popular as ever and even being seen on celebrities - if anyone is interested in what these people wear.
These all in one zip up suits, usually in stretchy fleece can come with or without hoods and with or without feet.
These days you can buy them almost anywhere and there are loads online - they come in numerous colours, sizes and patterns - I think my favorite would be leopard print.
I can see how younger people would embrace these - well teenagers mostly. I only actually saw one in the flesh when my son's girlfriend had a huge cow one for Christmas - complete with hood and horns! Made in black and white fleece it was super warm and so big she could put it on over her clothes.
Spurred on by this, and the fact my bedroom is freezing and I wanted to avoid using too much oil central heating I ordered one that was for sale with Avon - this one was pink and fluffy and was branded Hello Kitty.
Well, it was nice material and a good generous size - but what a struggle to get in and out if - so I sent it straight back! Perhaps me not being so agile and energetic as when I was younger was something to do with it but it was just way too much effort - and the thought of pulling it all off when cold to go to the loo just didn't bear thinking about. I much preferred to wear leggings under my trousers and add another fleece - it kept me just as warm and was not half as much bother as trying to get out of one of these all in ones.
The fact that I would have looked slightly ridiculous did not bother me for around the house but it was just too much effort and would make you feel cold when removing it for 'calls of nature'. I think a separate top and bottom are much more practical. My sister got me fleecy pygamas which are much more practical
Definitely something that should be confined to the younger generation I believe!
I've got to admit that when the onesie first became fashionable a couple of years ago that I laughed my head off at the wearers of these overgrown babygros thinking that they were only suitable for adult baby fetishists to wear. I have since changed my opinion and have bought several of these suits for my daughter and niece and even one for myself.
I think that the lounging onesies that people wear outdoors are hideous and don't care how fashionable they are. I would never wear one of those and would be deeply embarrassed if my daughter decided to wear one too.
The onesies that I have fallen in love with are the pyjamas. There is nothing nicer than curling up on the couch nice and warm in a nice fleecy onesie. The onesie keeps you lovely and warm in bed on winter nights too.
Onesies are exceptionally comfortable to wear. They are generally made out of fleece or a stretchy kind of synthetic material. They can either have zips or poppers up the front of them and come with our without feet attached. I personally prefer my onesies without feet as I feel that they would be too slippy to walk around in and I would end up falling over.
I actually found it really difficult to source onesies before Christmas. The gorgeous Disney onesie I had spotted in Asda in November had sold out before I went to buy it and very few other shops stocked them. It was good old primark which came to the rescue providing two lovely onesies for the teenagers. Onesies tend to be priced in the £10 to £20 price range.
The only place I have seen plus size onesies for sale is New Look and they only had one style which was a white background with pink hearts. New Look have a large range of kids and ladies onesies and Asda and Primark stock onesies too. The only place I have seen male onesies for sale is Asda who had a couple before Christmas.
The only real disadvantage to onesies is that when you go to the toilet you need to unfasten yourself and pull the whole suit down. My niece suggested designing a onesie with, erm, flaps to allow ladies to pee easily but somehow I don't think it will catch on.
Go on, embrace your inner slob and buy a onesie. Lazing round the house has never been so much fun!
LAZY COSY - ALL IN ONE SNUGGLE SUIT
**This review is for the Lazy Cosy - All in One Snuggle Suit which looks very similar to the one shown in the picture.
All in one suits have become very popular over the last few years and they come in various designs and names depending on where you buy them from. They are available from most high street shops which sell sleepwear as well as online shops. The price difference is so varied again depending on the source.
~Product Description and Design~
This all in one snuggle suit comes packed in a box covered with various pictures of the suit to show the full view back and front and the various design features. Like most clothing items manufactures assume the use is common sense so the suit does not come with a set of instructions. Basically this is an all in one suit which keeps you warm. It can be used as an indoor overall suit or can act as a pyjama set. It is made of soft fleece material which feels very warm and soft on the skin.
This all in one snuggle suit has a hood secured to the rest of the suit and has draw strings to allow one to adjust the hood size to fit the head and face and to add onto to the warmth. It has a zip in the in front which is centrally located and runs from the neckline to just below the waist line position. This makes it easy and very flexible to put it on and remove it as there is lots of room for movement. There is another zip which runs across the back along the waistline and down the side to the hip level. After a while I figured out that this zip is useful mainly when you want to use the toilet, you don't have to remove the whole suit, just unzip this bit and zip it on again when the job is done. The suit has long sleeves also adding on to the warmth. The legs are also full length and open footed. It has two side pockets which are fairly deep to hold stuff and to keep your hands warm.
~Availability and Price~
I bought mine from The Works in December for £9.99 but they are sold out now. It was real value for money and I don't regret buying it at all.
The suit comes in two sizes, medium and large and in three colours, black, red and pink. The sizes are quite big cuts and loose fitting giving a nice comfortable and flexible fitting.
The suit is imported into the UK by The Works Store Limited (TWSL), B76 1RN.
~Why I bought this suit~
I used to envy my daughters in their suits (the Onesie) which they bought from one of the High Street shops. Their Onesies are pretty cool representing various animal characters so they have tails and ears but most important they are so warm. I really wanted one but without the animal character features so I was looking around for one and should say some of the prices I saw online were shocking. I used to wrap myself in a fleece blanket to keep warm but this was not a very practical solution. I was so delighted when I saw a whole lot of these snuggle suits in our local The Works Store in December 2012. I didn't really need to think twice before buying one. Mine is more formal and my daughters are a bit jealousy now, might have to buy some for them next time they are in stock. Sadly this particular version is currently out of stock even on The Works online store. I know there are lots of versions out there but a lot of them are very pricey compared to £9.99 I paid for mine.
* Super soft fleece which gives a warmth and nice soft cosy feeling on the skin
* Light weight so no heavy feeling when you have it on
* Loose fitting sizes so plenty of room to easily snuggle in and out of the suit
* Keeps most of the body covered for warmth and still allows flexibility and use of hands, legs and feet.
* Easy care and machine washable at low temperature, 30oC, no ironing required
* Ideal to wear throughout winter and for cool summer evenings
* Nothing fancy like ears and tails which are not really meant for me
* Not footed, has open foot area good for hygiene purposes but will still need slippers so can also be a disadvantage.
* Limited colour choice
* Limited size range
* Sleeves and legs are not ribbed or elasticated so don't hold tightly and allow a bit of air breeze
* Not sure it is ideal for men
~Summary of my experience~
This is a really nice suit even ideal for an adult like me. Fleece is generally a warm material so this snuggle suit is very warm and comfortable. It keeps me warm and allows me flexibility to continue with my activities. I feel like I am covered by a fleece blanket but I find it also funny that I look more like a big baby in a baby grow suit.
Overall, I am very impressed with the suit and would highly recommend it.
I have managed to tackle this winter as I snuggle into my warm suit all the time, feeling warm and comfortable to sit and relax so no need to keep the heating on all the time for warmth hence also reducing the cost of my heating bill as well.
