Personally I'm a twosie kind of girl

I'm not alone!  

There seems to be a craze at the moment for a strange kind of garment known as a "Onesie".  They come in all shapes and sizes and with various attachments so that you can make yourself into various animals etc.  One of my relatives even had a matching set for all their family members - well matching in that they all had a onesie, none of them were the same.  I've seen the photographic evidence.

Admitedly they are supposed to be cosy and comfortable - ideal for lounging about in your own home, walking out to the shops a definite no no, unless of course you're on the way to a fancy dress party via the off licence.  

I thought I was on my own in thinking they have a rather large drawback but no, there is a kindred spirit out there, a reporter for The Times newspaper.  She had a much better way with words than I have but the gist of her article in today's paper was about how impractical these garments are when you need to use the toilet!  Those of you who know me well will understand this is important for me.  The need to strip the thing off to use the loo is a definite design flaw.  (Unless of course they do come with an evacuation flap in the nether regions but I'm pretty sure they don't.)  

So I will be sticking with my PJs - my best friend bought me a lovely comfy pair for christmas so I'm all set and if I get cold I'll resort to my slanket. I might not be prepared to wear a onesie but I'm not adverse to wearing a back to front dressing gown!


  1. I with you on this one. I can't see me in a onesie anytime soon. I do have a slamket though and that is quite cosy.

    I did have a laugh at them all in their onsies....even aunt June!

  2. I've seen so many people getting these as Christmas pressies this year. They do look cozy but I think they should remain for the 4 year olds!
