  • Under the onesie if no skirt or other bottom is being worn, and on top or under if one is being worn. :)

  • I would say under unless they have learned how to unsnap the onsie, then I would put them over.

  • i always wondered this too!
    i put them over the onesie!

  • I always put them under there onesie. The onesie held the tights up better and I think it looks nicer.

  • under the onesie. Just like a leotard in dance class! It will help keep them pulled up that way, the tights aren't sagging down by the knees!

  • Have to agree with everyone, under the onsie. It helps them from falling down and looks nicer.

    Answer by Melbornj at 11:46 AM on Sep. 8, 2010

  • Under if they have no cute butt print on them and over if they have print there so it shows from their sress.

  • aww, i am the only one that puts them over? i wear panties under my tights, so why not the onesie under the tights?

    Answer by happy2bmom25 at 12:02 PM on Sep. 8, 2010

  • I would put them on under because they would be less likely to slide down that way.
