Bodysuit - how to choose the right size?

Bodysuit can be a versatile addition to your wardrobe, either as underwear or an element of styling a casual look. In this article, we’ll take you through how to wear one and the appropriate size for getting the most out of it.

What is a bodysuit?

A bodysuit, popularized by supermodels back in the '90s, was originally an attire used by ballerinas and gymnasts since the 19th century. It enabled them to perform acrobatic movements without any hindrance. During the 1950s, fashion designers began to take note of this body-hugging garment.

Women's bodysuit is a single-piece garment, reminiscent of a swimsuit. It is pulled on over the head and clipped at the crotch with snappers or equivalent fastenings. It can be worn as lingerie, but also can be used as an everyday wear for multiple looks. This one-piece design provides full coverage up to the waist which helps slim and shape the figure.

Types of bodysuits

The body can be worn in a range of different ways. From the elegant appeal of lace bodysuits to the comfort of cotton, tulle or knitted options, they can easily become part of your evening ensemble, ideal for parties and dates. With so many styles available, there's something for everyone!

On the other hand, a body with either long or short sleeves can work as an excellent substitute for a blouse in your daily outfits. Thanks to its slim fit and fastening it will not wrinkle or peek out from beneath trousers or skirts, giving you an impeccable look throughout the day. It is especially appealing on colder days when its snugness helps protect the back from chilly air.

How to choose the body size?

When selecting a bodysuit, be sure to try it on for the best fit. Ensure you have freedom of motion and that the garment fits snugly. A quality bodysuit should include elastane so it lays comfortably on your body. Standard sizes usually range from XS to XL.

A lace bodysuit should fit us like it's part of our body. Pay close attention to the underwires on the breasts, and make sure they fit exactly right.

Choosing the right size is essential for obtaining a garment that fits comfortably. It should not be too tight, creating wrinkles in the armpits and thighs, or too loose, such that it needs to be constantly adjusted. Furthermore, it should not put pressure on the crotch area. For bras, cups should envelop and provide optimal support for the entire breast.

The body is a versatile item of clothing that can be worn as underwear or a blouse for women of all ages, regardless of their body type. It pairs well with sweaters, shirts, jackets and sweatshirts; and looks great with both pencil and flared bottoms. If used as an undershirt, the body needs no additional undergarment; however if it's used as a blouse then lingerie goes underneath.

Bodysuits are sure to make any woman feel confident, beautiful and feminine; they come in plenty of styles, so you're sure to find something that catches your eye at online lingerie store.
