Kigurumi, also known as adult onesies have exploded in popularity over the last few years and why not! They are super warm, they are super cute and they are equally at home at a costume party or a relaxing night chilling at home and watching Netflix.
If you are currently in Japan it is easy to find kigurumi onesies. Just visit a Don Quixote store which can be found in all the major cities in Japan. This is your best bet for authentic Japanese onesis as the best price.
For the rest of us here in Australia who aren’t planning a trip to Japan anytime soon it is a bit more difficult.
