I love a good topic of debate. Most recently I asked whether or not hats had a place in modern fashion. Today I’m asking whether or not body suits are practical OR fashionable.
As someone with a few more curves than the average ‘I only consume 800 calories a day’ model, I wonder whether body suits would look fab and just highlight the flab!
I also wonder how toileting goes? I mean, seriously, that will be the day the lock on the toilet door doesn’t work and Ryan Gosling* walks in!
*Okay, maybe that would be *so* bad… So many pick up lines, so little time.
Would wedgies be a concern too? I mean, I do a lot of bending (hurr hurr), stretching, lifting and climbing in my job that by the time I was finished they would be so far up my arse I could use them as tooth floss.
Do you wear undies with it? I mean, do you double up or go some weird version of commando?
Would they not encourage cameltoes?
Would they make you boobies look WEIRD? My boobies look weird in one-piece swimmers. Kind of flat and squishy and usually lopsided.
Anyway, all those questions aside; What do you think of these sets? Would you wear a body suit or are you happy to just tuck your shirt in like a normal, non body suit wearing, person!
I confess to wearing bodysuits! I wear them dancing so no one sees butt crack or boobs if I’m doing aerials fair call?
I think this is more than a fair call Miss.
I really like that last set – the top half of the bodysuit looks like a jacket. Interesting.
I remember wearing bodysuits as a teenager. We wore them with shorts or jeans, sometimes on their own, sometimes with a gauzy sort of top over the top. They were really comfortable (definitely wore undies underneath them though), never popped open unexpectedly, and were easy to manage in the bathroom. I had about 10 of them, some with short sleeves, some long, some no sleeves, all in different colours. They were fantastic in winter as well, as you could pop them under a reasonably lightweight top and it would help keep you warm!
I don’t know if I have the body to pull them off now – I’m certainly not the shape I was when I was 14, but seeing the different styling options I might be tempted to give one a go.
Would you consider wearing them with spanx as well? Some great points in the pro column here. Im almost convinced Maz!
I might think about wearing them with spanx. Or I would wear the bodysuit under a top that would allow it to be seen, without leaving me completely exposed to critique about my lumps and bumps!
I think bodysuits are a bit strange – I imagine it would be just like wearing a swimsuit underneath your clothes which I don’t think would be very comfortable! What I do sometimes is tuck my shirt into my stockings if I’m wearing them so I still get a smooth silhouette under my skirt.
Do you have a long or a short torso Jennifer? Do you think that would affect your decision in wearing them?
I think the only reason I would wear one is because I have a really long torso and find it hard to tuck shirts in!
I have a really short torso! Maybe that’s why it’s easier for me to tuck shirts in then!
I was actually talking about this the other day!
I think a bodysuit under clothes would be the most perfect keep your whole back warm in winter clothing option… At least my Mums old one was when I was a tween.
I havent worn one in years though and would probably be inclined to wear a bra underneath (these babies dont hold themselves up you know!) but would probably go commando (which has never fased me before).
Where can I find one oh gorgeous blogoddesses!?
I honestly didnt consider the warmth factor. It would be sure to keep your lower back nice and toasty! Nothing worse than a sudden cold breeze on your lower back!
You can buy them just about anywhere are the moment Jessmeca. Try Forever New, ASOS, Portmans etc tec. They seem to be quite the thing at the moment!
Next time I’m somewhere with shopping I will pick myself one up!
Following on from your comment above Amy, I also have a long torso so it would definitely be a case of try it on before you buy it!
I think I might even employ your bra testing routine to double check that it is comfortable.. nothing worse than buying a swimsuit only to find it likes to permanently embed itself in your ass.. I think a bodysuit would have a similar tendancy if it was the wrong length?
I think you’re right about lengths! Send us in some pics when you get it all sorted. Cant wait!
