Aww So Cute onesie review

Aww So Cute sell onesies (or bodysuits, if you prefer) in addition to their adult baby diapers (reviewed here). In order to sweeten the bitter pill of extortionate postage costs, by getting an extra small thing, I handed over the readies and eagerly awaited a new onesie. The price is a little high but not unreasonable and they have the ‘lap shoulder’ design that very young babies’ clothes have sometimes.

Before buying I measured myself carefully. Then I got worried that I might be incompetent so I got daddy to measure me – oddly I was not reassured about my competence when the measurements were identical. One of the sizes seemed to be a perfect fit for me looking at their sizing chart, so I plumped for that. Here’s what it looks like on me:

As you can see, it makes me look like an inmate of an extremely secure psychiatric ward – it’s awful!

Not only is the sizing really off but that lap shoulder thing really doesn’t work for superannuated little boys and girls; relatively speaking our heads are too small and our shoulders too wide. The hole this creates at the top is consequently so large that you could take the Aww So Cute onesie off by pulling it down over your body and off your legs. It’s ridiculous!

There are a minimal number of snaps that would not really hold a saggy diaper zain place, assuming your powers of prognostication allowed you to buy an Aww So Cute onesie that fitted anyway. Moreover, given the enormous size of the head hole, if you did have a heavy nappy on, and the feeble snaps managed to hold, the weight of the diaper would just pull the onesie down your body. It’s almost as if the makers when out of their way to make this the least functional item of adult baby clothing they could possibly design.

Because I am always absolutely honest I’ll admit that I do rather like the baby blue trimming on the onesie (you can get pink trimming as well). But with the Aww So Cute onesie this really is an exercise in poo polishing. The Aww So Cute onesie is unattractive and not fit for purpose, or crap as we used to say in the Oxford Zoology Department. Do not, under any circumstances buy one of these onesies; unless, perhaps, you are buying one for someone you loathe and want to make them look like an utter joke (see pictures above). Aww So Cute onesies are simply rubbish.

I would be throwing mine away but it’s just possible there is a really enormous little boy out there who has secret dreams of looking a bit foolish, so here’s the deal. If, over the next couple of weeks, someone offers to post me a jar of pickled onions (or shallots) that I deem to be of a quality elevated enough to suit my exacting standards, I will, once onions (or shallots) have been received post you the onesie. I do not expect anyone to take me up on this offer, but if you really want a rubbish onesie contact me with details of your onions sharpish before I throw the blasted thing out.

    Such a shame, I hate it when people cut corners when producing clothes. Shameless advertising (so my apologies) but I bought a lap neck onesie from veryspecialclothes.com and I must say its super comfortable, fits like it should and the lap neck really adds a nice infantile look to the whole ensemble. Not a lost cause in terms of design, but sadly it seems a lost cause when it comes to Awwwsocute. Hope you get some nice onions out of it instead though :)

      Hello Nikki,

      Thank you for dropping by my site and taking the time to comment; it’s nice when I’ve written something that people want to engage with.

      I went and had a look at veryspecialclothes.com and I was not only taken with a lot of the designs but also the wonderful fabrics they have. So you’ve basically twisted my arm and forced me into buying a onesie and a short-legged romper ;) The prices are reasonable for hand made-to-measure stuff so if my first order is a success I am quite certain more orders will follow :)

      You should try and claim a freebie for referring me, I’ll probably review them when I have a few items of clothing so by pushing me you’ve probably put a lot of business their way. Email them a link to this page, tell them to look at the comments and say it’s all down to you that ‘Davy Strange’ ordered. That should convince them you are worthy of a particularly lovely item of clothing!

      Thanks for the recommendation; if you have any more do let me know!

      *waves*
      Davy.

        Thats very kind of you Davy and I’m sure Auntie V will make you something wonderful. I’ve sent her a link to your page so I’m sure she’ll be checking in on you at some point.

        As for the referral, its simply enough for me that you ordered in the first place. I believe we all need to support the people that use their skills to benefit us, sadly it seems in these times of hardship they are a diminishing resource.

        The good ones like Auntie V who has been around for over 20 years making clothes for our community are both especially rare and as I’m sure you’ll find wonderful at what she does.

        Enjoy

        Nikki

        Hello Nikki,

        Nikki, I don’t know if you get sent replies from this, but (finally) my review of Very Special Clothes is up! Hooray! I’m quite pleased with it considering how difficult it was to write. Anyway, I’ve emailed Auntie V a link and hopefully you will be lauded with praise.
        Thanks again for recommending Very Special Clothes, they are are very special indeed!

    I’d fix it. I have decent enough sewing skills. Most clothes don’t fit me right anyways so I’m used to making a few modifications. Then at least it would fit perfectly and exactly how I want it! But that’s just me, and I enjoy modifying my clothes.

      When I buy clothes I don’t normally expect to have to modify them to fit. I expect the people I’ve purchased them from to have made them to fit. Besides, I’m not very good at sewing.

    I find, after purposely washing and drying in HOT, it shrinks considerably, becoming a tighter fit of preference.

      I’ll give it a try but it’ll have to shrink massively. It’s like a potato sack.
