I suppose that depends on what a "onsie" is. Stateside, we call onsies those little outfits babies where. At least that is what I'm familiar with when I hear the term "onsie".

Hmm, so yes they are what I'm referring to sort of. However in Britain it has become a bit of a craze at late for people to buy adult size suits and wear them out and about in public. For example I own a tiger one.

I haven't really followed 'trends' since I was a kid. I just find colours/ styles I like, and wear those.

Onesies....naw not viable for me I wouldn't be able to get out of one in time before bodily functions took over!!
If becoming enlightened or an intellectual means I must become arrogant and coldly cynical about the world around me then I'd gladly remain a fool for the rest of my life!!

That's why they make trap doors for the rear!

I would love to see that in picture form. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I wouldn't be surprised if people over here start wearing them. All you need is the right celebrity to wear one on an awards show or interview. I would wear it around the house as pajamas, but not in public.

Trap doors....yeah I would never ever use a trap door I find the very idea silly, I prefer clothing to be far away from anything I am doing in the bathroom, less germs that way and just less gross!!

EDIT: Just realized people actually consider wearing those things in public, onesies are pajamas and will always look like pajamas!! I wouldn't be seen dead with someone walking around in a onesie unless it was Halloween or another dress up party, otherwise they look like they have just rolled out o bed and made no effort!! Of course, that is not a new craze in working class areas, I do consider the pajama look to be frowned upon, there's house-wear then there's outdoor-wear!!

I mainly use mine as PJ's but its a ready made costume so it sees day light occasionally. I'll post a pic up for you at some point Yong but I think I left it in Lampeter and I'm travelling back to Essex for my (early) Easter break.

People used to come in one please where I worked in pajamas. Or an 'outfit' that looked like sleep/ lounge wear.
