Seeing one in person was much more of an up-sell than a television commercial. I opened the box to feel the material- I had to see what was all the craze. The material is a fleece like material although I hear they use "innovative" materials- it's likely just fleece (I love fleece though, so soft!).
It was incredibly soft and the price was 10.00 not 20 as advertised on TV (although to be fair you get 2 for 20.00 on TV but no option to just pay for 1).
I thought, "its only 10 bucks, what the hell". I bought one (royal or electric blue, my favorite color for its vividness) and took it home. I immediately was excited to try it on. It only took one try to really love this thing! Unlike the Snuggie the Forever Lazy fits well and makes the wearer look cute! I caught my fiance borrowing mine and she was absolutely adorable in it!
When I wake up in the morning I'm ALWAYS freezing cold. It's the blood not circulating much during sleep, I assume, but the fact is I always have to put on a bunch of clothes to get warm but with the Forever Lazy I just throw that bad boy on and all is good. It seems to regulate my temperature just right, not too cold, not too hot and even in really cold weather it is warm.
I sit at a computer most of the day and I love fresh air from outside but it can get cold, the Forever Lazy and Snuggie works well for that too- now I can breathe and stay warm. They also come with these spiffy "treaded" socks to wear with it outside. I wore those for a few days and can't find them now lol, but normal socks work just as well.
I vowed never to be caught dead in this thing at first but now I don't care. I was sitting at my computer in a warm Forever Lazy one day when 5 Deer were standing right outside my back patio (no fence, just an open patio). I ran to get my camera to get a shot (and got one (see below) but I chased after them for a good 300 feet out in the open sunny day where all could see me :) and I wasn't embarrassed.
