Snug As A Bug In A Rug
Member Name: Enkaypee
Advantages: Generously sized, warm, comfortable, range of colours, genius idea!
Disadvantages: Smaller people may find it a little too big and roomy
I feel the cold very easily, so love anything that can keep me warm. We've got several throws and blankets throughout the house, and I get tons of use out of all of them. However, I'm also the type of person that loves to text a LOT, and spend too much time on the laptop. This provides some difficulties...how can I do all that but still keep my arms, shoulders and the top of my chest warm?!
The answer is genius... A snuggie from JML is a throw which has sleeves sewn into it, so you can keep warm and cosy but still text, drink tea and write reviews to your heart's content.
I'd seen these advertised for quite a while and thought they were just perfect for my needs, so I was over the moon when I found one under the Christmas tree for me this year. They're made by JML so can be found in any number of places - as I didn't buy mine myself, a quick Google search has told me that they're available for £14.99 from both JML Direct or Amazon. However, I think my mum said she found it cheaper elsewhere online so it's worth looking around to see what bargains you can find. It's worth knowing that they're made from 100% polyester.
Snuggies are available in blue, red, pink, or even leopard or zebra print! I have a pink one - perfect for the girlie girl that I am.
On first taking the snuggie out the box, we were a little worried that it'd be quite thin and not very warm. However, our fears were soon allayed, as the inside of the snuggie is so soft and fleecy that it traps all the air inside to keep you nice and warm and toasty.
As for the size of it, I believe it is only available in one size. Unless you're a big strapping 7 foot tall bloke, the size should be plenty big enough for most people. I'm about 5feet 8inches tall, and when I stand up with the top of the snuggie tucked over the top of my shoulders, the bottom still trails on the ground and a few inches get caught on the ground when I walk. The arms are generously proportioned, too. My arms are longgg...longer than even my Dad's, and my armspan is much longer than my height. Nevertheless, there is plenty of extra room for me with the sleeves, as I can easily take hold of the ends and wrap them up into a ball to keep my hands enclosed in the warmth. The sleeves are also quite baggy, so no matter what you're wearing there's no need to worry about the sleeves being tight, stretched or uncomfortable. For me this is just right as it provides a reasonable amount of room for adjustment, but I'm not sure if more petite people would get lost in there! The width is roomy, too. There's plenty of space for just me curled under there, but as often as I can I get Mr. E to snuggle under there with me too. He takes one arm and I take the other - we have to be quite close to be able to both fit underneath, but it is easily possible, and anyway it just makes things all the more cosy... ;)
As I've not had it very long I've not needed to wash my snuggie yet, but as long as it's treated with care I'm sure it can just be popped in the washing machine. In fact, so far Mr. E has managed to spill sticky, melting chocolate down it already, and a damp cloth was all that was needed to quickly clear up the mess so you'd never know it was there!
I've been in my snuggie all day every day since Christmas...OK, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but I wish I had been! I can't recommend it enough as it really does make keeping warm on the sofa a whole lot more practical and flexible. If you're anything like me this will be a godsend for you, as I know I'll most certainly get Father Christmas's money's worth out of it!
