Question: What Are Onesies®?
Answer: Onesies® is actually a brand name of the one-piece, t-shirt-like baby garment that has snaps at the crotch to keep it from riding up and exposing the baby's tummy. Though many people refer to all of these one-piece outfits as Onesies®, only the Gerber company actually owns the rights to that name.

One-pieces and Onesies® are also called bodysuits. The term is most often used to describe a short-sleeved bodysuit that does not cover the baby's legs, but it also can refer to versions with long sleeves and long legs. Onesies® can be used as a complete outfit, as a t-shirt, or as an undergarment. Onesies® and one-piece bodysuits range in style from simple, white, undergarment versions to colorful, patterned and embroidered types.
