I am considering purchasing a couple of diaper onesies, but not sure what and where to get them. I have looked at a number of sites, but the sizing is difficult for me to make a decision. I am 5'8" tall with a 30" waist. Looking at size charts, I would take a medium using my waist measurement. But, the length would indicate that I need a larger size. How do I decide? If anyone has purchased a onesie, I would appreciate knowing where you got them, how the size runs, etc. Also, I prefer a neck style that resembles a traditional t-shirt; not the banded collar that I see on many. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Search Amazon, see who the sellers are and reach out on their websites. Search for adaptive medical clothing companies, including some local ones (local to you). Some seamstresses can convert shirts for you, turning polo shirts into onesies.

If you can sew it is easy to make a onesie. Take a T-Shirt and some cloth and sew it to the back of the T-Shirt. Then bring it up between your legs to the front. Sew on Velcro to the cloth and T-Shirt. To cut down on the bulk you can cut the cloth in an hour glass shape.

To make one real easy, without sewing all you need is a T-shirt, pillow case and several safety pins. Pin the pillow case to the back of the T-Shirt bring it up to the front and pin it.

Damn, that is ingenious!

If you are anywhere near the Atlanta area you can buy one in person at Diaper Depot on the east side of Atlanta. They sell every type of diaper from baby to adult, and yes even some AB types but that's not their main thing by any means. Helen will be more than happy to give you a personal fitting for your onesie to make sure you get the right size.
