Styling a Bodysuit 101

I may not always remember the proper name for a bodysuit (I’ve called it a onesie and leotard to name a few) but one thing I definitely know is I am OBSESSED with them. I love the tucked in shirt look, it takes a relaxed look and makes it look polished.

Let’s talk about the fears behind wearing a bodysuit:

  1. It won’t be comfortable… Surprisingly, it is! Babies enjoy them, why can’t adults? After a while you forget you’re wearing a bodysuit until you go to “untuck” your shirt. Tip: if you’re not able to try on the bodysuit and you typically go between sizes, then purchase up a size for comfort.
  2. It’ll feel like a permanent wedgie… Nope! I’m sure you felt the same way the first time you wore a thong (if you’ve never worn one you’re missing out on the freedom). After a while you’ll find that you prefer a bodysuit over a normal shirt. I’m serious, give it a chance!
  3. There is no way I can go to the bathroom in it… Let’s just say that it’s easier than you think, I promise. Besides most snap open and shut just like a baby onesie (that’s a reason I get confused by the name).
  4. I don’t know how to style it… Ahhhh it’s so easy!!! Pinky promise. Just pair it with high-waisted shorts/jeans or a shirt. Soon you’ll feel more bold and you’ll wear it with your regular pants.

Take a peak at how I styled mine. Yes, the gray “t-shirt” is actually a bodysuit. 🙂 Give bodysuits a chance, just like that guy were going to left swipe but decided to “live on the edge” and right swipe. Why do I always compare fashion to dating? I don’t know, I’m single. Back to the topic on hand…

    Those are ALL the concerns I’ve had over the years! I don’t wear thongs (have tried, can’t stand the feeling!!) and that’s why I figured bodysuits might feel kind of similar. I suppose the ones that have those thong-like backs are the ones I would still avoid, but I’m totally open to trying other ones now!!
