madammecholet, I see what you are saying, but it usually doesn't matter what other haters think, i.e you are a hater, remember the old saying "don't knock it, until you tried it". or something like, or are you scared, bawk, bawk, bawk, and Yes, i agree the decorative ones(the ones with images on them should stay home, but one that is just a solid color or something should be fine to wear out in public if a person had the guts. And The ones who do wear footed pjs or ones like you've linked, they have their guts and they don't give a care. Which is usually a good thing unless of course you want to get a job or something, now think about this the only reason they were able to get these so-called footed pjs for themselves is because 1. they are rich, so they go by the old rich code, "hello, i'm rich, and i don't give a shit, what you think" kind of attitude or something like that. option 2. They are self-employed and make a 6figure earning or something like which means there business is expanding and stuff. 3. they might be apart of the ab/dl community. the 1st 2 options I could understand, but the 3 option not really. just saying. The items might be ugly(somewhat), but have you looked at or any other similar site where people might buy these things and second, make the politicians to make the companies that make these so called footed pjs and call a law to make it illegal or something of the sort. But it's their life, let them live it without any kind of hassling from you or anyone else that hates these footed pjs. I'm just saying, some people are rich so they don't care, 2. They are self-employed and can afford such luxuries, yes this things are considered luxuries to most people, because do you know how much they cost, look at the cost.very expensive so people have a good earning potential in order to afford them and even have enough money left over to pay the bills or something like that.

I can see how they may be comfy and warm but I think that just because my husband still (says he) stills finds me attractive after 20 years I'm not sure I'd care to push my luck and see how he feels when I toddle about in a babygro.....certainly it would not induce me to strip his onesie off in a fit of passion. UGH.

I'm very tempted to get one for when I'm on call - I can pull it on over my scrubs and away I go grin In the middle of the night the last thing I need is to faff around with jeans and jumpers.

I saw a number of people wearing them in tesco today hmm

BlameItOnTheChoirOfAngels Fri 14-Dec-12 21:10:59

I'm wearing mine now, its ace. sooooo comfy. its not sexy, but oh, its ;lush.

Helltotheno Fri 14-Dec-12 21:07:45

Love mine for around the house and love that you can more or less go commando underneath cos it's so shapeless. Only thing is I can't stand not to wear something on my feet over socks so I lobbed off the feet and wear slippers.

Wouldn't be seen dead in one outside though..

brighthair Fri 14-Dec-12 19:55:03

Because my top rides up in bed and my back gets cold
I wear a cotton one with buttons and nothing digs in, with a vest underneath. But then I also sleep with socks, 2 x 13.5 tog duvets and a blanket so I might just be a wimp grin
My partner is highly entertained by the fact I need all this when he sleeps with a sheet and naked blush

extracrunchy Fri 14-Dec-12 18:55:59

Cos they are COSY.

Just bought my 21 year old daughter a onesie - I am assuming she will only wear it to keep warm in her student house! That said, I saw a couple of students in them in a motorway services recently!

I.Just. Couldn't.

Dressing as babies

lowercase Fri 14-Dec-12 17:51:14

I was thinking about this a while sexualisation of children with bras, heels etc. and adults as dressing as in onesies and play suits.

It's not for me.

i wear a frumpy fleece round the house when I am cleaning Kiki - go for it.

I am tempted by the Onesies for a laugh but as long as you only wear it indoors and don't answer the door it's fine IMO.

madammecholet Fri 14-Dec-12 16:34:36

So pleased I'm not the only one who thinks they are the work of the devil or some lunatic in a retail marketing dept having a laugh

Hobbitation I am interested in the sound of your 17.5 tog duvet. Where did you get it?

I don't do onesies, even less so after that adult baby programme on channel 4 last night.

Hobbitation Fri 14-Dec-12 14:55:23

Because I get cold in bed some nights in spite of having a 17.5 tog duvet. Onesie and thermal vest for me! So cosy. It is a bit cold to strip off for a wee but not slow, as mine has a zip, easy access! I haven't worn it outside yet but have been so tempted in the morning.

Mine is this one: Fair Isle Onesie

I went to an informal drinks party a few weeks ago and a married couple were both wearing them shock. Twas freaking awful.

Chandon Fri 14-Dec-12 13:45:16

I have seen bunches of teens in a bar with this look.

Great, I love it when people dress really badly. t makes me look good and elegant and even glam!

So do wear them, so I can look like a super model next to you.

I'm with you OP... No self respecting woman should be seen dead in a onesie, in or out of the house. They are hideous! They are for babies! I especially dislike the animal style ones that come complete with ears. What's suddenly wrong with a pair of plain pyjamas? Don't do it ladies!!!

WynkenBlynkenandNod Thu 13-Dec-12 23:58:43

There was a man ahead of me in the petrol station wearing a Superman onsie recently. It was most perturbing and worrying when DD said he looked 'awesome'.

Manictigger Thu 13-Dec-12 23:54:01

Mine has a zip round the arse for when you need the loo. I have bought it only for when we go camping and there is frost outside the tent and have promised dh I will never wear it at home. Tbh it is very comfy but the static it produces is a bit scary.

Djembe Thu 13-Dec-12 23:01:57

Primark have sold out of men's ones! I wanted a penguin, snowman, reindeer or something but nada. Every man in the UK is getting one for Christmas, apparently.

There were loads of women's ones left if you have a change of heart OP wink

carlywurly Thu 13-Dec-12 22:54:23

I genuinely don't think they're acceptable on anyone old enough to dress themselves. confused

Drywhiteplease Thu 13-Dec-12 22:45:09

I'm with you all the way mmeCholet .ok on my 12 yr old but only just.

AuntLucyInTheNorthPole Thu 13-Dec-12 21:25:26

I saw a woman in the pub wearing one yesterday. She wasn't even collecting for charity. I nearly collapsed in amazement. WTAF!
