As the weather gets colder, more and more brands are coming out with oversized hoodies that offer maximum warmth and comfort and Big W has now joined in the action.

The retailer sells $40 versions of the widely popular Oodie, with the most loved one amongst fans being the Friends and Disney themed versions.

Big W's oversized hoodies feature a "fluffy interior" and "fleecy construction" with many taking to social media to share how desperate they are to get their hands on one.

Big W fans have shared their version of the oversized hoodie is "so so comfy", however, others believe the Oodie is far superior thanks to its thicker material.

Kmart also has a $29 dupe of the Oodie, with one TikTok user writing, "I used to have a Kmart one, it lasted a month and then I got the real one. I didn’t realise until I had the new one that the Kmart one was thinner."

Another said: “I own both, the real oodie is 100% worth it! Save up if you can, the Kmart one doesn’t compare”, while a third commented: “The quality is pretty good for the price.”

Oodie has Australia’s largest range of hooded blankets for adults and kids, with a huge variety of prints and colours available, but they are slightly more expensive at about $100.
