Common features in the baby bodysuit are the neck style. Some have envelope neck or extra snap closure at the shoulders. Both envelop neck and snap closure makes it easier to put on or off over the baby’s head. Envelop neck make it easy to take it off from down by pulling it down from the shoulders.
