Literally. Ladies, You Need to Jump into These Onesies!
Let’s face it – onesies are awesome. It only seems like a few years ago now that they became super popular and now there’s a whole industry dedicated to them. Move over “footie pyjamas” – now, there’s onesies for girls, onesies for men, women’s fleece onesies, animal onesies, you name it! Point is – onesies are here to stay and we’re here to help you choose the best one.
Bruce actually has a dinosaur onesie that he wears some mornings when he’s feeling lazy to put on real clothes. Sometimes he walks around the flat making dinosaur sounds – which, if you know Bruce, is pretty entertaining.
One of the hardest things to do is actually buy a decent onesie. Besides online, there aren’t a ton of retailers who make a point of selling them. If you’re in the UK, finding a onesie can be simple. If you’re not in the UK, it can be difficult to find a decent Onesie because you can’t just stroll down to the road to get a onesie at Primark. And points if you know what Primark is!
So, to help you choose the best onesie – we’re going to walk you through the things you need to consider before you buy, and then show you some of the top-rated onesies to get your creativity flowing. There are many purposes for a onesie – and we’ll dive into that below! Keep in mind, some onesies are only seasonal – like you shouldn’t really wear a Christmas onesie in the summer. I mean, you could – but probably shouldn’t!

Things to Consider when Buying Onesies for Women.
Before you buy, here are a few questions you should ask yourself before making that big onesie purchase:
Purpose. Let’s start off with the reason you’re buying a onesie. Is it going to be for sleeping in and to genuinely keep warm? Perhaps you’re intending to be using it more as a costume item for a music festival, bachelorette party, or fun event? Whatever your reason, buy a onesie for your purpose. Some onesies are made from fleece and will be warmer, while others have more pockets for storing things.
Fit of the Onesie. This one is very important – because no one likes a onesie that doesn’t fit properly (or, at least how you WANT it to fit). Generally, if you order online there will be a buying guide for each brand that walks through the sizes they offer and what that means for your body measurements. Some of the measurements to consider are:
- Chest – measurement of our chest width and cup size
- Shoulder – distance from middle of one shoulder to middle of the other shoulder
- Total Length – usually from the top of the shoulder to ankle (where the onesie would stop)
- Inseam – length of inner thigh to ankle
Details/Accessories. This kind of goes along with purpose. How many pockets does it have? Where are they located? Are there drawstrings on the hood? Are the wrist and ankle cuffs loose or elastic fit? Does it have a tail? Is the front zippered – or buttoned? How far does that zipper go down the front? This will make it easy to get in and out?
Price/Quality. Generally, onesies are cheap but some of the most detailed or ones made from heavy, warmer materials are going to be more expensive. Be sure to check reviews about a particular style or brand – sometimes the tail on an animal onesie is prone to falling off and it’s best to know that before you buy!
Now that we’re all thinking about buying onesies, let’s browse some of our favourite onesies!
Animal Onesies for Women
Animal onesies are awesome. They just are. These are just a few of the best animal onesies that we love right now. Hint: We especially love the giraffe! With animal onesies, be sure to read the reviews. There are lots of ears, fur, tails, or eyeballs that can fall off or become unstitched if the quality is low. Just a heads up! Bruce’s dinosaur onesie has been great – but it was ordered from a really good Japanese brand. No joke!
Red Onesies for Women
For whatever reason, red is a very popular onesie colour. We think it’s because onesies for adults originated from having footie pyjamas for Christmas and the red tones just kind of stuck around as more and more women (and men) bought their seasonal colour and patterns. Over time, we have lots of great looking red (or shades of red) onesies! These are just a handful of the ones that we could find but definitely some of our favorites!

Stylish/Patterned Onesies for Women’s
Just another sample of some of the styles or patterns available. With these ones, note that the materials differ. Some of these are more for lounging around the cottage or apartment, while others are a little thinner, lighter, potentially more revealing, and for made for sleeping.
