John Lewis Baby Wadded Snowsuit, Berry
Warm and pretty
I bought this as an early Christmas present for my granddaughter as she'd grown out of her first size coat and needed something warm for the winter. My daughter (the baby's mother) was very pleased with the quality and style, loved the colour, and tells me that she's received a lot of compliments on the coat.

I am positively reviewing this snowsuit although I am actually returning it next week. The plus points are many, and are: Lovely feel to the surface, great red colour (I disagree with the other review - it's unisex and definitely red#, has a soft checked lining, great one central zip #the double zips on others are very annoying# and smart pockets with poppers #for storing tissues for runny noses). I bought a 18-24 month size for my chunky-ish 17 month old son in November ready for the icy blasts of winter. I'd say the fit was perfect, but I suspect it would be getting very snug by end of February. However, I am returning it only because another snowsuit I had ordered from an online catalogue, had a better fitting hood which my son will find hard pushing back down, as the little chimp just won't wear hats, so I need a snowsuit with a more elasticated hood that will stay up. This red suit has a fab hood with xmassy soft fur trim around it, but its quite loose fitting and just won't stay up. So this is the only reason I will sadly return this lovely snowsuit. But otherwise, I would recommend it.

Overall a good buy
I wasnt sure if this item was for a boy or girl, but assumed it was a girl as it was "berry" coloured. It is quite a bright shade of pinky red. I like the detachable mittens. I bought the 12-18 size for my small 2 1/2 year old who is 84 cm tall. There are no booties on this size which is what I wanted as she walks and the leg hole is roomy so easy to get shoes/feet through. The body fits fine but I think the inside leg is very short could do with another 2 inches.
Overall pretty good quality for the price but there is slight static when taken off as the material is polyester.
