Why a Onesie Will Help You To Relax

There’s nothing better than that feeling you get when you finish work for the day. You throw down your pen or let go of the mouse, switch the computer off and make a dash for the door as quickly as possible. 

Braving the cold and the rain, you head for the train or your car and endure mind-numbing boredom for the next half an hour whilst you battle rush hour to get home. By this point you’re probably starving and tired! Upon reaching home, you feel like you have completed some mighty quest, triumphantly returning to your castle.
When you get to the end of your working day, how do you unwind? Do you religiously don your sportswear and head to the gym? Is it a case of supervising the dinner, bath and bed routine for your children? Or, do you kick back with a cup of tea and watch your favourite dramas on TV? However you spend your evening, it’s important to make the most of those precious segments of leisure time we enjoy in the week. 

The question is, what do you wear around the house? Some people favour shorts and t-shirt or tracksuit bottoms in the winter. Others prefer to keep things a little more formal, donning jeans and shirts even for just chilling at home. Then there’s people who save all their old, torn, tattered, paint-stained clothes for home, this generally being the case for those with young children. 

All of these clothes come with their advantages and disadvantages. Shorts and tracksuits can tend to look a little scruffy, even though they are comfy. Jeans, chinos and shirts look smart but are hard to relax in, because the materials are not designed to stretch. Wearing old and damaged clothes is practical, but what kind of impression do you make on anyone who just happens to pop round? 

Another option of course is to wear a one piece bodysuit. Having become fashionable in late 2012, these garments are called ‘onesies’ and entirely cover the body. Cute and cosy, onesies also keep out the cold. There are loads of different types to choose from. 

Since this type of clothing became popular, my boyfriend made an idle threat that if I ever wore one around the house he would cancel our wedding. This of course spurred me on to buy several of the things, and to wear them whenever he’s not home. I just love how warm they are and how soft they feel – much nicer than wearing normal clothes for when I’m watching a film or reading a book in the evening by lamplight, my cats cuddled up around me. 

So, when the other half dons his football pads for a night of sport in the freezing rain or snow, I rush upstairs to throw on my favourite onesie. What he doesn’t know can’t hurt him, after all!
