Bodysuits makes a great alternative to a bra or camisole. You can wear them on its own or as a foundation piece for an outfit.
The main thing you need to consider when buying a bodysuit is what purpose it will serve in your wardrobe. Here’s a few pointers to help you make up your mind.
There are two types of bodysuit – those with a built-in bra, and those which require a separate bra.
For everyday wear, it’s best to go for one that comes with its own bra, because this will avoid any unsightly bulging and keep everything looking neat and smooth under clothing.
If you are going to wear bodysuit underneath something else, then having an outer layer of support is vital. Look out for open gussets beneath the bustline – they provide more flexibility and give you the option of wearing an outer layer that might not otherwise fit properly around your bust area.
The most important thing is to find a style of bodysuit which fits you well. If you have a large bust, it’s important to look for something that will offer enough support without being too tight or too loose.
For smaller busts, it can be tempting to go for something that is loose and comfortable.
If the bodysuit isn’t from stretchy material then try one on before buying it.
Make sure that it has enough give in the material so that it fits your body shape well. If it doesn’t fit well then it’s unlikely to wear well over time.
Bodysuits can be worn alone as a single piece, or with a pair of shorts or jeans to create a more casual look. It is perfect for weekends.
