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.
Thank you for reading and rating.
