I Just Don’t Get Onesies!

I Just Don’t Get Onesies

Rabbit onesie

Bunny fleece onesie £9, Tesco

Confession: I have never worn pajamas all day long except when I am sick, ever.

I have worn them until about midday until babies have given me a window to shower, I have come home from work and changed straight into my pjs. But never, ever all day.

Second confession: I do not own, nor do I ever plan to own a onesie.

I mean seriously, what is the crazy onesie love all about?!? I just don’t get it, let’s look at this from a sensible point of view:

  • Going to the toilet must be both a pain in the behind and rather cold, like needing a wee when you’re in your swimsuit. It’s all got to come off… Right?
  • Surely they’re sweaty? All that synthetic fabric all over your body? Not to mention some other less than savoury side affects this might contribute towards… you know what I’m talking about…
  • Style. Surely any onesie fan can agree they are not flattering in the least? Half the time you look like an adult teddy bear… I mean really.. who wants to look like Baloo from the Jungle Book?
  • You have no waist, no waist AT ALL. Why would you do this to yourself?
  • Then, finally *whispers* babies wear them. I don’t think I need to say anymore!

So am I a crazy onesie hater or are you joining me in my anti-onesie revolution? 😉

  1. I am SO with you on this! It’s a shapeless Babygro for adults – except babies look cute and adults look like smelly slobs.
    I recently wore a (quite stylish) jumpsuit to a party and the effort it took for me to have a pee was exhausting, cold and a bit uggh! I figured that the only upside was that I must have burnt calories with every loo trip/jiggle!
    Ban onesies, I say 🙂

  2. Yes to freezing when you need to go to the loo! I bought one because I thought it would keep my back warm while bfing at night but I can’t zip it up because it chokes me!

  3. @Amanda I am so glad I am not the only one! And I have seen people go to the supermarket in them too! Your jumpsuit comment made me laugh 🙂 I actually like jumpsuits, but they are the kind of thing you wonder if they’re worth it by your 2nd loo trip of the day.

    @Char ah yes breastfeeding at night is not the best, I always end up cold. But I think a zipped hoodie would be better?

  4. The answer is in the picture! Even a model doesn’t look good. They really are giant babygros and whilst babies look adorable in them adults do not. Despite the going to the loo difficulties I can imagine they might be cosy on a cold night which is why I would never risk trying one on!
