I have two dresses from there that I just love, the fabric is just awsome. I wanted to get more clothing and am wondering about the "zippers" one piece things they have, are they comfy, do they fit nicely???<br><br>

We love zippers...they are organic cotton and are quite soft, getting softer as you wash them.<br><br>
My DD wears them as jammies and with the cuffs they last us for the better part of a year per size, literally. She started in a 70 at 5 months (and it was big on her) and wore the same size 70's until 13 months when we upgraded to 80's. Now at almost 20 months the 80's are fitting nicely with no cuffing and tonight I put a 90 on her and it is a little baggy and cuffed but comfy and adorable. She'll probably switch to 90's exclusively this fall (shortly after she turns 2) when the weather get cooler again.<br><br>
All that to say that for us we've really gotten our money's worth out of them. And no matter how much you wash them they really do look brand new.<br><br>
If you are looking for a daytime, more fitted outfit do be warned that there is a pretty big leap between Hanna sizes (i.e. the difference between a 60 and 70 is greater than the difference between 3-6months and 6-9 months in my experience). That's a plus for me as I've described above -- I dislike replacing clothes that have only been worn a few times before they are outgrown -- but your mileage may vary.<br><br>
The zipper goes down quite far on one leg; they are easy to get on and off and I sometimes change DD's diaper only taking one leg out of the jammies.<br><br>
I also really like Hanna's onesies and soft landing pants. They don't stain easily, don't fade and never pill up or look old even though we wear the heck out of them.

Hannas are the best!!! Just make sure you buy Hanna stuff that says certified by Oko Tex Standard 100. That means the fabric, buttons, zippers, and threads are tested to make sure they are free of over 100 potentially harmful substances that are found in many clothes. BTW, all the "zippers" are certified by Oko Tex Standard 100 and they are organic cotton.

add me to the list of zippers lovers! I was hesitant at first to shell out over $30 for pj's, but these rock. They fit for soooooo long and wash incredibly well. I love them, love them, love them.

I'm a big Hanna fan but the zippers aren't my favorite. I have a problem with the zipper flipping up and poking the baby in the throat when she's laying on her tummy. I used the hand-me-downs I had from DD1 but I haven't bought any new ones simply because of this.

We love our zippers. I am also amazed at how long they can wear them!

My DS wears Hanna zippers and long johns to bed every night. I buy them on sale - recently got them for $22 each, which is much better than the $36 they retail fror (I won't pay that). I LOVE them. They have a lot of longevity - one size lasts a long time, although they recently made a chance and don't make the cuffs as long anymore. A mistake, IMO - we loved the extra wearing life the cuffs provided. They have flat lock seams and the material is SO soft and comfy. I want a pair for me!

Looooove the zipper outfits! They'll last forever -- just be sure to get the right size. Don't buy big if you can help it, because each size is really roomy and will fit for a long while. We bought an 80 when she was in a 70, thinking that because she was pretty long and in CDs that were fat, so we'd need a bigger size. Nope. Should've stuck with 70. She can wear an 80 but we have to seriously roll everything up.<br><br>
Hanna's stuff is way costly but absolutely worth it for the quality and long-term wear potential. We've got a few of their outfits and I wish we'd saved money by buying several other cheaper outfits elsewhere, for one or two more of Hanna's wear.

We LOVE the zippers outfits! My boys wear them all. the. time! All day and night long. They are the easiest for quick diaper changes, their feet can be bare (awesome for crawling, pulling-up, cruising babes), and the Oko-Tex fabric standards are a special bonus. I send my mom over to the Hanna outlet in MN every couple of months to pick us up some more. BTW, we love their wiggle pants, too--awesome for fluffy cd'ed baby butts!

I love everything. She wore size 50 wiggle pants for 4 months from birth ( born with just over 9 pounds) and size 60 from 2 months until now! I get so much wear out of these clothes it is insane! I have used bodysuits here that still look new. IMO HA makes the best quality clothing out there, hands down. And customer service is exemplary.<br><br>
I definitely will get some zipper outfits for winter, I know they'll fit till summer <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">
