Right, I'm getting a onesie

61 replies

Always thought adults wearing onesies was a bit infantile and embarrassing, but this winter it's going to be cold and I've stopped giving fucks.

Who knows of a good one, with a hood, warm winter-weight but ideally NOT sweaty polyester? I'm open to either plain or novelty colours and styles (I don't even mind ears/a tail if it's the right onesie).
Budget is up to about £50.
TIA.

I've just bought this one and I absolutely love it:

It's SO soft and warm, I highly recommend it!

Thank you. Is it a bit sweaty though, being polyester?
Actually that makes me think: does one wear anything under them?

I don't find it sweaty, maybe because the fabric is sort of "teddy bear" fluffy type instead of regular fleece. My husband has got a horrible staticky one, and I was keen to avoid something like that!

I usually just pop it on over my clothes when I get a bit chilly, if I'm already in something comfortable. Otherwise I just wear it over my undies. I suppose the real test will come when the proper cold weather starts.

Don't do it!

The concept seems good but every time you need the toilet you have to take your top off. If you're getting a onesie because the house is cooler than you prefer then you will be getting cold every time.

Get an oodie (or primark version) or fleece pjs with seperate top and trousers,

That's useful, thank you.

Yes, that had crossed my mind! You can get ones with flaps, I've seen. For some reason I feel a bit squeamish about that, but I'd probably get over it. Or can you get press-stud ones like you get with bodysuits?

Just looked at oodies. Thing is that then I have to think about warm trousers/leggings, as it leaves the lower legs uncovered, and I think a onesie might be cosier.

I'd recommend an "ooodie" and trousers too. The faff and cold when going to the toilet would irritate me.

My fake oodie was so warm I was fine with tracksuit type trousers/thick PJ trousers.

Maybe an oodie is where it's at... But I do love the idea of just one garment.

Primark fleecy pyjamas for me. They were a Christmas present, soon became a go to on cold days

Yes, but that 3/4 of you is warm whilst your going to the toilet too, plus the trousers keep the other 1/4 warm with no risk of being peed on.

I got some alpaca leggings. Not the same as merino wool base layers, they are thicker. Am planning on wearing under jeans

I know they’re above budget but if you can maybe put one on your Christmas list,you cannot beat Onepiece onesies. They are very warm, well made, and good thick quality. They wash and last well. (They also have styles with zipped bum flaps but never felt the need for that!) The hood zip fastens right up to above your eyebrows if you want, which is great for dog walking in blizzards/driving rain! I had to stop wearing mine (original style) in previous years,as it’s so hot but may well get it out again this winter. You’ll never wear another once you’ve got a Onepiece, there’s just no comparison with high street onesies - they’re worth the extra money.

I have this one. Offers on at mo,plus discount code if you sign up to mailing list etc.
I bought them as Xmas pressies for family one year - we all lived in them all Xmas and beyond!😂My sis used to put hers on as soon as she got in from work and also bought herself another,so she had one to wear when other was in the wash! I wore them indoors over just
underwear if weather not that cold,or over a T-shirt if colder. Wore thin leggings or tights underneath it too if walking dog in it but that was too hot to do inside the house.

Right, I'm getting a onesie

@hellosunshineagainxxx they used to but I can’t see them on the website anymore!🙁 I think the full zip is no hassle at all though - it’s smooth and v long (there’s no wiggling required) so just drop it in 2 seconds for going to the loo and then arms back in and same quick zip up afterwards.🤷🏻‍♀️

Good call. They are the best and so worth the money compared to the many copycat fakes.
