Winston Churchill created "onesies" or "siren suits" back in WWII days

The ‘siren suit’, which bears resemblance to the infamous ‘onesie’, is a practical one-piece item of clothing originally designed by Sir Winston Churchill during the Second World War to be quickly slipped over his clothes in the event of an air raid. The great statesman had a variety of siren suits, which he referred to as ‘romper suits,’ including sombre, military style suits, as well as more extravagant pin-striped and velvet versions.

Onesie is also known as a jumpsuit, which is a single piece of clothing, originally referred to the functional one-piece garments used by parachuters/skydivers. More recently, it has come to be used as a common term for any one-piece garment with sleeves and legs and typically, though not always, without integral coverings for feet, hands or head.

Onesie in the 2000s has become a sensation and a commonly used word for loose-fitting casual jumpsuits for adults, made of knit cotton (as used in sweatshirts), fleece, or chenille. They are mostly intended as loungewear or sleepwear but have gained significant popularity as stylish streetwear. Overalls are like onesie and also became popular during the 90's.
