For adult onesies see above, for the answers to all your onesie queries, see below.
Surely onesies are just for kids?
Certainly not. Unless you think fun and comfort are just for kids, and in that case I recommend you pick up a onesie as soon as possible to melt your icy heart. Adult onesies can be a great replacement for men’s pyjamas, and ladies onesies serve as the ideal realisation of lounge-chic.
Can I get an adult animal onesie?
Absolutely, and what’s more you can (and should) get more than one. Whether you want to lounge around in a cosy panda onesie, travel back millions of years in a dinosaur onesie, or feel fabulous in a brand new unicorn onesie, you can get them all right here.
Are onesies only for wearing indoors?
You can wear your onesie anywhere you want to, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise (dress code permitting I suppose, they’re not quite accepted at black tie events). An adult onesie may be perfect lounge-wear, but this does not mean that it is only lounge-wear. If you feel like shocking the town in your pikachu onesie, then go right ahead.
Can my partner and I get matching onesies?
Yes, and you’ll both look awesome. You could go for completely matching his & hers / his & his / hers & hers onesies, or each come as a duo of similarly themed outfits. Or you could just choose which are your individual favourites and enjoy wearing your new favourite outfits together. Adult onesies make great gifts, and it’s always good to share the love.
General onesie queries
How do I know which size onesie will fit me best?
When it comes to onesies, it’s generally better to look for one with a bit of room to spread out in: they’re designed for comfort after all. Usually onesie manufacturers are aware of this, so whatever size of t-shirt you wear should be the size of onesie that works best. The dimensions of each onesie are included in our product descriptions to help you find a fit that’s just right.
How do I wash my onesie?
Although the comfort granted to the onesie-wearer can make it hard to change into normal clothes, onesie hygiene is certainly to be recommended. Lounging around all day can lead to a onesie getting a bit smelly (and wearing it out on the town carries a whole host of other hazards we won’t go into here). As onesies are made from a variety of fabrics, the exact washing instructions will depend on the onesie you buy. Typically they are all machine washable, so you won’t have to worry about awkward looks from the dry cleaners!
What material should I get my onesie made from?
This depends on what you want your onesie for and how much you’re looking to spend. If you’re looking for a fancy dress costume that’s likely to need washing the next day, then picking up a polyester or cotton onesie would be a sensible way to go. If you’re looking for maximum lounging comfort, either for you or your children, then why not indulge in a fleece or towelling onesie?
Should I get a onesie with or without feet?
They’re both great options, and it probably comes down to how cool you think your socks are. Onesies that cover your feet are ideal for wearing around, and will usually have pads on the soles to prevent any awkward ungraceful falls on wooden floors. Footless onesies allow you to wear socks and shoes when going out, although bear in mind that shoes can also be worn over the feet of other onesies.
How do I pee while wearing my onesie?
A very legitimate and important question. Using the toilet while wearing a onesie will tend to involve a complete disrobing (although for the guys a onesie with a full zipper down the front can provide some…access). Onesies weren’t necessarily designed with bathroom convenience in mind, but then neither were dungarees and those are pretty damn cool.
How much should I spend on a onesie?
That’s a bit like asking how much a pair of jeans costs: it depends on the onesie you decide to go for. The general price range is anything from £10 to £50, and the difference between more expensive onesies and the rest tends to be related to the quality of material and additional features (such as tails or awesome hoods with teeth and eyes to make you look more like the real thing).
