Bodysuits don’t have to be a love/hate thing. We happen to fully support the return of the trend, just as we are behind any style from the 1990’s that has come back in the last year, namely slip dresses, chunky boots and motorcycle jackets. The bodysuit is the perfect staple, whether paired under high waist denim for a cool evening look, or layered under a blazer and skirt for chic office wear into after-work drinks. It’s also a super sexy alternative to classic lingerie. And, like its one-piece cousin the onesie, bodysuits make for a cool, put together look that requires minimal fuss or thought.
However, we get that while bodysuits are unequivocally amazing, they come with their share of well, issues. Does one wear underwear or no? What happens when it’s time to go to the bathroom? We get it. You have questions. Fear not, let us be your guide in solving your bodysuit conundrums with these simple styling tips. Read on and you’ll be rocking the trend in no time:
No VPL’s allowed: The last thing you want to do is look like you’re wearing a bathing suit under your vintage Levi’s or pencil skirt, so opt for a style that offers a thong-like back and super minimal rear coverage, like this classic lace thong style from Hanky Panky.
Make it Snappy: At the risk of having to strip naked every time you use the restroom, opt for a style with openings at the crotch in the form of snap closures, like this super sleek Wolford style.
Have a Cup or Two: If you’re on the larger busted side, don’t feel you can’t enjoy the bodysuit trend. Embrace a style that offer a built-in bra component, like this Maidenform bodybriefer with contour cups and a bump pad at the bottom for added lift. Or, wear your own bra with this DKNY bodybriefer style.
All the Bright Places: If you’re going to embrace “bodywear as outerwear” then why not have some fun with it? This Natori Feathers Bodysuit is a sexy style in a sweet rose hue that makes for an eye-catching appeal when layered under a jacket, dress, or one-piece option.
Comfort is Key: If you’re feeling too tightly wrapped up, there’s no way you can truly enjoy this sexy trend. Remember that comfort trumps everything and opt for a style with some stretch to it, like this Naomi & Nicole Firm Control Bodybriefer. It features lightweight, yet powerful fabric to give you the look you want while still being unbelievably comfortable.
