The most comfortable pajama…ever!

Those who’ve been following our blog or have been visiting our website know of our love/double love relation with Bibi Lab and its refreshing original and useful products. We actually survived this summer unbitten by those pesky tiger mosquitoes thanks to the  Net man, a full body mosquito net

Earlier this year offbeat clothing and housewares company Bibi Lab released its Damegi roomwear. A one-piece garment for relaxing at home, the Damegi gets its name from dame (“no good”) and gi (“clothing”) because of the implied promise that it’s so comfortable it’ll absolutely kill any sort of productivity while you’re wearing it.

While the previous model was marketed to women, a brand-new version of the Damegi, called the Fuyu no Damegi (“Winter Damegi”), has just gone on sale, sporting a number of improvements over the original design. For starters, instead of the drab gray of the original, you can now chose between five different colors: Pinky Peach, Chocolate Mellow (brown), Green Rush, High Risk Red, and Midnight Navy. The medium size fits wearers up to 165 centimeters (65 inches) in height, while the large is for those up to 180 centimeters.

Made of extra warm, heat-retentive material, the new Damegi will keep you toasty not just from head to toe, but to your fingertips too, thanks to its four-way convertible mitten-style sleeve cuffs.

A hood and zip-up mask will also help keep heat from dissipating out of your head.

Down at the end of the pant legs, you’ll find snap-shut coverings for slipper-like comfort.

And, as is standard with the Damegi, the hood contains two openings to pass twintails through.

And, for a last bit of functionality, the Fuyu no Damegi has a zip-out section at the rear, so you can go to the bathroom without having to take the entire thing off.

Bibi Lab says the Fuyu no Damegi is great for happy families and loving couples alike.

The company also bills it as the perfect “gaming wear” for cold-weather video game binges.

And being the holistic-minded company it is, Bibi Lab also recommends enjoying the Fuyu no Damegi in tandem with some of its other products, such as the Cotton Wife/Husband or Sandwiched Between Twintails Pillow.

With prices starting as low as 5,709 ten (US$55) there is nothing to hold you back to get as comfy as possible this winter…Don’t blame us, though, if after you put it on you end up spending all winter loafing on the couch.

More versatile than a snuggie or slanket, “Dame Gi” is the last thing you’ll put on…ever

Summer has already given way to fall, and those cold winter nights will soon be upon us. As economical as Japan’s method of heating individual rooms can be—usually involving air conditioning units or kerosene stoves—it does have its issues, the biggest of which being that only a couple of rooms are heated at any one time, leaving everywhere else in the house freezing cold. During winter, trips to the bathroom in a Japanese house are no fun.

But this winter brings with it a new clothing item that is going to solve all your lounging and heating issues in one fell swoop. This light-weight but incredibly warm one-piece is so comfortable, it’s like you’re wearing nothing at all.

You can check all the men in your life off your Christmas list right now, folks; just get them the Dame Gi and they’ll be as happy as can be.

If these promotional images are any indication, this ridiculous piece of lazy-wear is the best thing since the invention of the remote control for apathetic people with nowhere to go. Called “Dame Gi”, which translates as “no-good wear”, this crazy looking zip-up suit claims that it will “ruin men”, although we can’t see why it wouldn’t ruin lazier women just as well. Made of lightweight but warm material, there are plenty of special features that ensure you will never have to leave the comfort of this amazing new invention.

▼ You can shut the entire world out with the Dame Gi. Note the breathing/eating hole for not dying/convenience.

▼ Note how the breathing hole can also be shifted to an eye hole, allowing you to watch entertainment without leaving the comfort of your hood.

▼ Additional handy features include a low front zipper and a rear poop chute!

They really seem to have thought of everything when they designed the most lethargic piece of clothing ever. Interested parties can order the Dame Gi for about 6,000 yen (US$49.89) on either Amazon or Rakuten. You can get them in medium (up to 175 centimeters/5’8″) or large sizes (up to 185 centimeters/6’0″) in that sweet vibrant navy blue color. You don’t want to be caught out in the cold without the protection of your precious Dame Gi, so make sure you order a spare for when you have to wash one after a month or so of continued use.

▼ It apparently took three iterations to figure out how to go to the bathroom in this thing.

▼ So roomy and comfortable, you will be able to dance in celebration…but you’re probably just going to lie on the couch.

▼ The materials used gives you a “practically nude” feeling. Apparently.
