The bodysuit is worn under other clothes or on its own if the weather is hot.

Bodysuits are also known as baby Onesies.

Most of them have an enveloped-style neck and come in different sizes and solid or mixed prints.

The envelope-style neck stretches well such that you can easily pull it over the baby’s head or pull it straight down to avoid going over the delicate head.

They come in different styles such as

  • Long-sleeved
  • short sleeved
  • Sleeveless
  • Kimono
