Rated 5 out of 5 by TwinsfortheWin Great product, as expected!
I just received this item in the mail and I love it. I bought it with the intention of wearing it as pajamas in the house and for cold weather camping trips. The fabric is thin, it is not a waffle knit, but is well made and very warm without the bulk of waffling. I bought the pink and I think it's cute. It is a union suit, however, and does not contribute to a modern silhouette. I couldn't imagine wearing this under any sort of normal clothing, but I do think it would be a comfortable layer to wear under bib overalls (snow pants) on the ice for ice fishing season or for snowmobiling. The fit could be improved. When I ordered, I thought the picture gave the impression of a short torso; and indeed it is. I was almost tempted to exchange it for a men's, but decided that I really like the pink. The sleeves are longer than they need to be, but the wrist cuffs do a fair job of holding them up. The leg length is fine. Overall, a great product- but if you are long torsoed and large busted, consider your sizing options as the torso is short.

This union suit is wonderfully soft, warm, and fits great as a pj. The ribbed wrists and ankles prevent the fabric from bunching up during the night and allowing cold spots. Yes, the button holes are a tiny bit big, but not so much so that the buttons pop open... It just makes unbuttoning easier. I love my red union suit and will buy another, just wish it came in a color other than pink. I bought my husband one for Christmas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GinaGirlGenius a frank look at its use
first off, I LOVE this. It's soft and comfortable and incredibly warm. Not to mention SO cute. I look like an adorable cartoon of a 1920s prospector, haha. I have no trouble with buttons unbuttoning (as one review mentioned the button holes being too big) and even when seriously bending over the slit in the back shows NO skin.
And oh that slit in the back. I'll admit, I would probably feel more comfortable if it opened wider but I can definitely, ahem, number 1 and 2 in it without problem or mess. I only have issue with, ahem, wiping front to back. It is definitely necessary to undo 3-5 buttons in the front to do this. Also the buttons that go down the front don't connect with the one that goes down the back, so at the very top of the crotch it's always sewn together, limiting how wide you can open the back. Again, it's not a problem but seems it would be so much more comfortable and simpler going to the bathroom if it was all one big opening. But maybe they tried that design and it didn't work.
As for the fit, I'm normally a size 12/13 and am 5'3, 160lbs and 36DDDD breasts (not a typo, I'm a 36G) and the large was roomy. In fact I might have liked the medium better but I figure I should allow for shrinkage.

Had one of these back in the '80's. Forgot just how relaxed you feel inside this comfy item. Enjoying it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jillskunk SO COZY!
Love my onesie...so soft and warm to slip into. After a wash and dry, they are a proper fit, true to size. Don't be alarmed by the larger appearing size when opening your package!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Judi2 a winter necessity
I wore mine throughout the winter even with a denim skirt over it and a sweater. It makes a great sleeper during those frigid winter nights, especially when you have to get up in the the middle of the night and don't feel like stripping down to use the commode. I had it in red years ago but I lost it so I got another one in the light pink that has a touch of lavender to it so it isn't a bubble gum pink like you might think.

I love these union suits. They are so cute! I bought the red one as well as the lavender. I'm about 5 feet tall, 120 lbs. The small fits just right. The couch is a little long, but that's the way I like it because I wear these as pajamas in cold weather. I am very sensitive to wool. It often makes me itch, but when I wear these union suits, the ichy sensaton is barely perceptible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by emvoll great, except...
I really enjoy almost everything about this union suit. It is super soft and warm. BUT...
-the button holes are SO SO SO loose. the one on the back flap was almost twice the size of the button! I had to sew all of the button holes tighter for them to stay closed.
-I am a medium, so I ordered a medium. I had to return it for a large... and the legs could still be much longer. I do have long legs/usually need tall or long sizes, but I'm only 5'6''/145 (size 10/30), so the medium should have fit, and this large should be slightly too large, but have long enough legs. The large fits, except the legs are too short. I saw other comments recommend ordering a size smaller-- I definitely would NOT recommend ordering a smaller size.
-AND the vertical back flap is awkward, inconvenient, and the button isn't placed properly for this to close back up. i.e., the flap is always partially open. This really needs a trap door style flap, or at least more than one button.
To sum... warm, soft, comfortable, but you'll need to resew all the button holes, order a larger size (especially if you don't have short legs), and always wear a pair of boxers underneath if you don't want to constantly moon your roommates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JLow1009 Love this
My husband got me the pink union suit for Christmas this year. He bought me a medium and it fit perfectly after washing and drying, it did shrink a little but I am 5'3 so it is perfect length. I wish it had the flap trap door in the back instead of a vertical opening but that's no big deal. It's nice and warm and I will be using it for all my winter sports

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rushmoreshopper Very cozy to sleep in
I really like the union suit that I ordered. It is very cozy and not too hot too sleep in. Very quality construction with exception of too big of button hole on back flap (although that may just have been a flaw on mine). I'm sending it back for a different one just like it. Overall very satisfied. Also like that it is made in Canada vs China.
