I have been wanting to try the bodysuit trend for quite some time now. However, there have been a few concerns that have held me back. First, they look tight. Can I move around in it comfortably? More importantly can I eat dessert and have that second (or third glass of wine) and not feel like I am saran wrapped in my clothing. Secondly, how do I possibly use the bathroom? A simple but very important question. These concerns aside I decided to finally decided to put my big girl panties on and just go for it. 🙂
I was beyond ecstatic when I realized that they are truly amazing! The styling possibilities with these babies are endless! I love the print and off the shoulder style of this one. The halter style on this top is super cute and this sheer one with a bralette underneath is a showstopper. I own this one, it’s amazing and currently on sale for under $30 (you definitely need to purchase it, totally worth it).
The one I am wearing in the pictures I found at Nordstrom Rack and unfortunately didn’t see it online. This one by Free People looks quite similar though.The cut on mine couldn’t be more flattering. While you can’t see the whole garment, it basically looks like a Bay Watch bathing suit. It’s cut incredibly high up on the thigh. This is a very flattering and if I must say a comfortable silhouette. It gives the appearance of a small waist, which on my body type gives the illusion of curves. I love this look for day to night and bonus it has snaps for all those bathroom breaks. 🙂
If you are uncomfortable with this trend here are a few of my tips. I prefer black body suits to any other color. Black is obviously a naturally slimming and more forgiving color. Look for a looser top, they are a great way to showcase the trend and still feel comfortable. Find one with a neckline that you love and feel good wearing. If you like to show off your shoulders then go for a spaghetti strap or cold shoulder silhouette. You get the idea. Finding one that showcases a feature you are already very confident with will only make you feel more amazing and beautiful.
