In recent years, bodysuits have increased in popularity for a range of ages. They create the sleek and seamless look of a perfectly tucked in shirt without any of the tucking, puckering or extra fabric. Bodysuits have evolved to include pieces for all seasons, sizes and styles. There are even shapewear bodysuits available for an extra flattering look!
Though bodysuits are a godsend and the perfect closet staple, you might still have some questions about how to wear them. Are you supposed to wear underwear with your bodysuit, or does that defeat the point of the bodysuit itself? The answer requires a little bit of explanation. Here’s what you need to know about bodysuits and your undergarments.
The Bodysuit Concept
To begin, you should understand exactly what a bodysuit is. This piece of clothing traditionally looks like a one-piece swimsuit, encompassing the entire middle part of the body. A bodysuit either pulls on by stepping the feet through the leg holes or features a gusset snap that opens and pulls down over the head before snapping between your legs.
Depending on the style and material, a bodysuit can be worn as a part of a casual or more upscale outfit. A bodysuit is a great option when you’re going for a seamless look because it helps you avoid extra fabric and unnecessary lines. Wearing a bodysuit with or without underwear depends on your outfit, fabric and personal preference. Below are a few things to keep in mind.
Consider Your Outfit
For starters, it’s important to think about your outfit as a whole when weighing bodysuit and underwear options. If your bodysuit is going to be worn under a flowy skirt or a pair of loose fitting pants, it’s definitely all right to wear a pair of comfortable panties underneath your bodysuit since your bottoms won’t be form-fitting.
On the other hand, you might want to skip the underwear if you’re wearing a tight skirt, jeans or pants to avoid any unwanted lines. This way, you’ll achieve a seamless look that looks nice and smooth.
Look at Bodysuit Materials
While shopping for bodysuits, be sure to check out the fabric on the bottom before you go commando while wearing it. Many of Leonisa’s bodysuits feature our patented technology and compression, so you should be safe to skip the panties! For bodysuits made of underwear-like material like 100 percent cotton or a common poly-blend, you should be good to go without any underwear as well .If your bodysuit is made of a synthetic material, you might want to consider putting an additional layer between you and the bodysuit. Seamless panties are a great option in this situation!
Avoid Unnecessary Lines
The worst fashion faux pas while wearing a bodysuit is to expose underlying panty lines. For this reason, many people choose to wear a thong or G-string underneath a bodysuit to eliminate this problem. For a guaranteed no-lines look, though, just go sans underwear! This way, you won’t have to worry about any other fabric bunching up or peeking out.
Most importantly, you should do what makes you most comfortable when wearing a bodysuit. If your bodysuit is made of safe material, feel free to go with or without underwear. If you do choose to wear underwear with your bodysuit, go for a comfortable and thin pair that breathes well to keep your lower area happy and free of constriction. Rock your bodysuit look with poise and confidence!
