Where to Buy Plain, Cotton Baby Onesies/Bodysuits?

Does anyone know where to buy plain, white, cotton baby onesies/bodysuits with collars, for a baby girl? I want sturdy, white cotton shirts with snaps at the bottom. Long or short-sleeved is ok & the collar can be plain or adorned (ribbon accent, embroidery, etc.). I need 2, for a baby gift, that can be worn alone with pants, or under overalls & dresses. They are really hard to find! Most have designs (like t-shirts), or no collars. Hanna Anderson carried plain ones in a really hard-wearing cotton (after months, mine still looks new), but now has only lacy necks. Bonpoint had a nice version too, but they were super expensive & looked worn out after only a few washes.
Thanks for any tips! I can shop online or anywhere in Bklyn or Manhattan.

So What Happened?

Thank you for all the help & good suggestions on where to buy collared baby bodysuits/onesies! The Janie & Jack website had something closest to what I needed. I'll check out a Carter's too, the next time I'm in CT. Now I'm off to buy food for my daughter's birthday party!

Hi R.,

Carter's basic tees are the best. Buy Buy Baby on 26th street and seventh avenue has an array of sizes up to 12 months, short sleeve and long. beyond 12 months, we have been buying them directly at the carter's stores.

I love Janie and Jack and every thing I own from them is super soft and still looks new after tons of washings. I have 2 of their gowns for my newborn and have washed them so much already and they still look and feel new.

I get the ones made by Carter's but I don't know where to get them in the city (Carter's has outlet stores at some of the outlet malls and my mom gets them for me at one in Mass). You could look for them on-line. They are affordable. Good luck.
