Oodie is life changing

If you don't want to heat, you need one in your life. I promise I don't work for the Oodie company. I feel like I never need to switch on the heating ever again!

And I used to be the kind of person who would have the heating switched on at all hours of the day.

I have just got one but find that the inside of it must be shedding loose fibres or something as it makes me cough. Anyone else found this?

I honestly think they're the ugliest things I've ever seen and nothing could induce me to buy one!

Ooh good to read! I've got us all a family pack for Christmas. I'm dying to wear mine but the DDs don't know and I don't want to ruin it because they'll love theirs. They wear their cheaply ones from last year all the time.

Love my Ooodie. I only wear it when I'm alone in the house or with dh and dc. I wouldn't wear it on a night out! So who cares if it's not a flattering garment?

Totally agree....hideous....make everyone look obese...and they waft around...do they get in the way of doing things....??....surely a onesie is better over some thermals...??....saw man in supermarket today....he was obese and was wearing one....so it was all sticking up at the front....cant see how it keeps you warm if you are large person !!

I don't have one but I have a very warm and cosy dressing gown that I wore most of the day wfh. What's the actual difference in terms of the purpose they serve? Dc is asking for one but they have a perfectly lovely warm dressing gown also that's only about 10 months old.

I'm large , well enormous, and I love mine. I only wear it at home and not when I am on a video call. But it's super warm and cosy and I love it

I have a dressing gown but this is so much warmer. I actually feel hot in it (and my heating is not switched on at all!)

I don't quite know why.

I've been wearing my (cheapo) oodie over my warm fluffy dressing gown.

I thought the dressing gown was good, but my goodness, this is a whole other league

The oodie doesn't gape at the front, even when you put your feet up, you're as snug as a bug in a rug.

I've got a kuddly and love it so much. One of the best things I've bought this year!

My DD loves hers. I'm not a fan as my washing machine doesn't like washing something so heavy and drying it is a nightmare. Luckily she doesn't get it dirty too often.

Do you have a real oodie?? I have a primark one which I love so deciding whether I need a real one or not. Does it even make any difference??

I love mine but I’m still a bit cold🤣🤣

I’m already obese so can’t blame the oodie for that one unfortunately. They are ugly as fuck but I don’t go anywhere in it so who cares🤷‍♀️ I’ve always worn layers and unattractive comfy clothing at home anyway so nothing new there!

They look so heavy and unwieldy, I think I'd struggle to move my arms around in one.

I do love a cosy fleece but those are a step too far for me!

I love my oodie and my kuddli, so warm and cosy, and comfort is what it's all about for me at home.

On the other hand, if you hadn't have bought the Oodie, you could afford to turn the heating on.

I just wear my coat with a jumper when I don’t want to heat the house. Both of them plus my joggers are half the price of the Oodie.

I'm a really cold person. Love my oodie. in fact, its too hot to wear unless its icy cold. I have sheepskin boots and just need to get thermal long pants to keeping my knees warm and I'm set.

Someone bought me an oodie and I can't stand it. It just sits folded in the bottom of my cupboard. It is warm. For sure. But it is so bulky and I felt like I was wearing a duvet.

I do worry about people using these and not heating their homes. Yes it makes you warm. But your house is cold and damp. Condensation dampness is in the air, the spores get into the respiratory system and cause illness.

the whole heat the person not the house is Reallu dangerous for health. If you can’t afford to put your heating on then yes, it’s a good thing to have, but if your home is becoming cold and damp then it’s a really bad situation for health. Because you still need to breathe in rhe cold damp air.
