OLEAN, N.Y., April 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Funzee, the online retailer of fun adult onesies, robes and other loungewear will be offering a summer range for customers in the USA this year.
Funzee has been designing and manufacturing its own brand of fun garments since 2008 but it has only recently started targeting USA consumers. The funzee products are available exclusively online and the full range will be available for despatch from a USA warehouse for summer 2014.
The range is focused on one piece pajama suits. These come in either cool 100% cotton or extra warm polar fleece. Some are hooded and some unhooded and there are both footed and unfooted options. Particularly popular for the summer season are all cotton striped designs including Reggae funzee (shown here) which is four color stripes of Black, Gold Red and Green. This design will be available at the end of May.
Funzee also produce a version of the full body spandex suits which they call Funskins, and make seven different styles of socks which complement their adult onesie suits. These give the option of having the warmth and comfort of footed pajamas but without the downsides: research shows that many people don't want to wear a footed garment in bed, and also that consumers complain that a footed product tends to get permanently smelly feet.
These adult onesie garments are normally assumed to be sleepwear but they are surprisingly versatile and practical. Funzee customer feedback shows that whilst some use their funzees for sleeping in, others use them for lounging around in the house, or for party occasions. Nearly a quarter of British adults do not own any items of nightwear, according to a sizeable Europe-wide survey by Cotton USA. It found that Britons were far more likely to forgo fusty passion-killing pajamas and sleep naked in bed than their Continental European counterparts such as the Italians and French. The Global Lifestyle Monitor study questioned 5,000 people from 15 to 54 last month about their shopping habits. It discovered that men in particular regard pajamas as relics of childhood best kept out of the bedroom, with women five times more likely to own a pair.
Stephanie Thiers-Ratcliffe, International Marketing Manager of Cotton USA, said: "The GLM report always provides an interesting insight into changing trends, giving lots to talk about when it comes to the different clothing habits of European countries. Since 2012 we have seen a rise in the number of people who do not own any pajamas – one reason for this could be the growing popularity of loungewear, including onesies, which means that people have a wider choice of comfortable clothes to relax in, beyond traditional pajamas."
Funzee have a warehouse in upstate New York from where all USA orders are despatched.
