A Bodysuit is a one piece form fitting garment like a swimsuit. Bodysuits have become a staple in women’s lingerie wardrobes, and for good reason. With one piece, you can achieve many different looks. While this category has been growing steadily for the last few years, we are starting to see some especially luxe pieces in the market.
What is it?
So, what exactly is a bodysuit? For the uninitiated, a bodysuit is a one -piece form fitting garment like a swimsuit. It helps in cutting down on flab while also working well as a fashion attire. Besides, it’s the perfect and simple layering solution that also makes a fashion statement in itself. And, there are various types as well.
The sexy bodysuit
If it’s sheer and does not have a nipple cover, stay away from it…this is not the bodysuit we’re looking for. This one’s great for those special occasions but not for daily public wear for average women. However, if you pair it with the right bra, a simple sheer body suit works perfectly for an evening do.

Styling a bodysuit
Now we know the types of bodysuits, but there are also various ways to style them. Depending on your body type and the outfit you want to pair the bodysuit with, styling is and integral part that makes this trend work.
If you have slender shoulders, an off-shoulder bodysuit with a statement neckpiece works wonders. It you’re a beginner, we recommend solid coloured plain bodysuits.
However, if you’re more into a casual look, wear a bodysuit with narrow fit denims and pair it with sleek stylish slip-ons or sneakers. Accessorise the look with some junk jewellery and add a little more glam to you outfit.
Bring out the boho chic in you with a sheer bodysuit and layer it with a kaftan, accessorising with tassel earrings and charm bracelets. If the bodysuit has a deep neckline, cover it up with a scarf.
Replace those boring old t-shirts and shirts with a graphic print bodysuit. Team it with jeans, shorts or overalls and work the cool, stylish look.
During winters, layering is the perfect way to make a fashion statement. So, layer a bodysuit with a blazer, denim jacket or a cardigan and slay it, we say!
Bodysuit with skirts
Who would have thought, but trust us, bodysuits and skirts are a match made in heaven. The combination looks so elegant and feminine. Team a pencil skirt with a bodysuit for a formal event or a corporate one; while a short skirt with the bodysuit and boots is just right for a movie date or shopping with pals.
Bodysuit with pants
Formal wear need not be boring; for those of you who wish to experiment with theirs, there are a plethora of options available. Pants are a must have in the formal wear wardrobe…but you need not stick to only top and shirts. Play around with pretty bodysuits that add a dash of style to your formal look. Solid colours can work well with various styles of pants…so stick to these. So, whether it’s palazzos, culottes, high-wait pants, or narrow fit ones, solid are a perfect match. Stay away from printed or graphic bodysuits though.
That’s another chic black design with a high V neck tucked in dark skinnies. Finish the look by adding animal printed bag and cool statement sunglasses.

Pair the bodysuit with shorts during summers; it’s the ultimate style statement, which also makes the bodysuit a wardrobe essential for the hot season. This look is perfect for casual or movie outing with friends.
