The purpose of a bodysuit is to provide support and a seamless tucked-in so that you can style with comfort and ease. Bodysuits can be skintight or relaxed, and due to its tension from shoulders to crotch, they can hug your curves as the perfect foundation, and on top so you can pair with any bottoms you want.
No doubt you have heard of it. People talk about how amazing bodysuits are— “modern wardrobe essentials” offering style and convenience all-in-one. You have seen it all over the internet, seeing celebrities and fashion bloggers pulling off a bodysuit effortlessly, but you JUST DON’T GET IT. Why are they so perfect? Are bodysuits the same as swimsuits? How do you wear it? Do you wear underwear with it? How do you go to the bathroom in it? There are so many questions in your mind that stop you from trying a bodysuit. Today, we will give you all the answers you’ll need.
Let’s start with the basics—what is Bodysuit?
A bodysuit is a one-piece clothing that looks similar to a one-piece swimsuit or leotard, but functions differently depending on its design, fabric and cutting. The top section of a bodysuit is just like any other tops you own with countless style options (from a classic t-shirt, a work-friendly blouse to a sexy deep v neck silhouette), while the bottom section is an attached panty that covers your torso and hips. Most bodysuits come with snaps at the crotch area for easy undoing without the need to take off the whole garment when you are going to the bathroom. The most common bottom styles of bodysuits are thong and full-coverage unlined.

How to Wear Bodysuit?
Wearing a bodysuit may sound new to you, but it is nothing complicated. Dress a bodysuit from top or bottom, then close the snaps/hook at crotch and you are good to go! The real question lies in— do I need to wear bras and panties with bodysuits?
A quick answer is no, you don’t! Bodysuit is a smart garment that combines underwear and top in one. It is made for convenience, extra fabric underneath but results in discomfort, but if you prefer some extra support or coverage, you can always wear underwear with your bodysuit. It’s totally up to you.
For tight-fitting or backless bodysuits, nipple covers (pasties) are your best alternative to wire bras for a streamlined silhouette.
How do I Style a Bodysuit?
Bodysuits can be worn alone as a fashion statement, or simply as a layering piece. You can style your bodysuit with jeans, skirts, shorts and work pants, basically any bottom to create outfits for different occasions.

Can I Swim in a Bodysuit?
Bodysuits and Swimsuits are not the same, but some bodysuits are made of swimsuit materials. Look into the material to find out if they are suitable for swimming— being stretchy and chlorine resistant is very important to avoid colour fading. The material also has to be breathable such that after repeated use in water, the bodysuit will not lose its shape.
Okay, so why are people crazy about bodysuits?
First of all, who doesn’t like a crisp and seamless tucked-in? Bodysuits are made to solve a problem— end the endless tucking and re-tucking. No more annoying creases and bulky fabric trapped at your waistline.
Secondly, bodysuits make layering easy. They are usually simple in style and therefore you can wear under sweaters, jackets or blazers to complete outfits without lots of thinking.
Finally, bodysuits are simply flattering! A good bodysuit hugs your body in comfort while supporting your curves in a sleek and smooth way. Choose a bodysuit that makes you proud of your body.
