Finally! How to Wear the Perfect Bodysuit

FINALLY!
HOW TO WEAR THE PERFECT BODYSUIT
By: Tamika Rose

Donna Karen was on to something 31 years ago with the “Bodysuit,” coined as the “easy piece.” The bodysuit has come a long way since 1985, from Wolford to Tom Ford, the bodysuit has taken on a whole new identity. Still an “easy piece”, women often get frightened when they see one, every insecurity known to woman starts to rear its ugly head. From not being “skinny” enough, to love handles, to not knowing how or what to wear with it. This will quell all of the insecurities, misconceptions, rumors and mistakes made when choosing a bodysuit. This will also tell you how to correctly wear one of these timeless staples to any woman’s wardrobe. Bodysuits function as shape wear, they smooth out any “imperfections.” Because a bodysuit is one piece they stay put during the movement of your body. You maintain your perfect look all day or night, just worry about reapplying your lipstick. If you’re lucky enough to find a bodysuit with snaps you won’t have to get completely undressed when you visit the ladies room. Wear your correct size, there’s nothing worse or more uncomfortable than wearing something like underwear that’s too tight.

There are only two mistakes women make when wearing a bodysuit.
Firstly, there is absolutely no truth behind having to be a certain size or shape to wear a bodysuit, but you MUST be conscious of your body type. Here are eight different shapes. that women fall into. Once you identify your shape, sit with it, deal with it, accept it, embrace it, and move on with life.

1.  Straight
Your hips and bust are the same measurements
Your waist is not very defined
Your lower legs are always shapely and one of your best assets
2. Fear
Your hips are larger than your bust
You have a nicely defined waist
You have a slim neck and proportionately slim arms and shoulders
Your waist is your best asset so don’t be afraid to show it off
3. Spoon
Your hips are larger than your bust
You have a nicely defined waist
Your hips have a “shelf” appearance
Your waist is your best asset so don’t be afraid to show it off
4. Hourglass
Your bust and hips are well balanced
You have a beautifully defined waist
You have gently rounded shoulders that align nicely with your hips
5. Top Hourglass

6. Athletic

Your hips are slim
Your waist is subtle
7. Apple

You also have a full shorter neck
8. Diamond

Whether you used to wear a bodysuit back in the 80’s, you’re a woman with children, you feel overweight, or you think you’re “too old,” the fact remains women have insecurities. It’s time that we get over them, start becoming fearless and confident about our bodies, no matter what they look like. If you feel unhappy with the way you look, make a change.

I’ve heard every excuse known on why women cannot wear bodysuits, bodysuits are a timeless staple to your wardrobe, and can be your best friend if you wear them correctly. The best part is no one will know that you have one on, people will say you look effortless, sleek and amazing, they will only wonder how your shirt stays so perfectly tucked into your jeans!
