Let’s admit it, with all the flexibility and styling options, there are few practical issues you need to keep in mind. Here are the real answers for all of the burning questions you might have when styling your bodysuit.
You’ll probably want to wear a thong-bottom bodysuit to look skinny from the back. If you aren’t comfortable in a thong, there are plenty of full-cut bottoms, just be sure the sizing of the bodysuit is perfect to keep panty lines from disturbing the line of your outfit when wearing tight pants and skirts.
Sounds like a silly question! but maximum girls have the same question that comes to mind. Most of the Bodysuits have buttons at the crotch. Just undo the buttons then you should be free. If it doesn’t have buttons then you’ll have to slide the whole thing down.
If you feel like you are swimming in too much fabric then know that, a bodysuit is all about perfect sizing! For women with a longer torso, bodysuits can feel a bit cozy since they have to fit from top to bottom. Stretchy fabrics and adjustable straps can help with this, but don’t be afraid to size up or down with a bodysuit to make sure you get the perfect fit. No one has to know and you will look flawless (and be comfortable)!
While bodysuits seem like a one-piece bathing suit and have an attached bottom, they don’t always have the added support you seek that underwear gives you. It’s up to you if you want to wear underwear with your bodysuit, but for styling purposes, make sure the pair you wear fits well beneath the bodysuit to avoid additional panty lines. Or you can try bodysuits with built-in thongs.
Some bodysuits have a higher cut, if you are wearing a lower rise bottom, more skin gets exposed on your hips. This could mean you will have some skin showing above the waistband and below the leg of your bodysuit. This can look totally sexy but if you aren’t comfortable with exposing skin in this area, consider high-waist tight pants or skirts to wear with your bodysuits.
Bodysuits answer the question: What if your thong stayed in place by looping around your neck? But a second question remains: How are we supposed to pee in these things?
A bodysuit is a skintight, leotard-style one-piece. It covers the wearer’s crotch, either seamlessly like a swimsuit, or with snaps, like a baby’s onesie. The bodysuit may include pants, it may include sleeves, it may have neither. It is a tube that receives the body, as a pitcher receives cool water.
Bodysuits are not a new trend—they emerged in the ’40s and were popularized in the ’70s—but they currently have us in a chokehold. Every woman celebrity wears bodysuits, and wears them regularly: Jennifers Aniston and Lopez, Meghan Markle, Gigi and Bella, Kendall and Kylie. The following stars wore bodysuits at the Met gala: Serena Williams, Ella Emhoff, Olivia Rodrigo, and Lil Nas X. Rihanna’s Fenty, Beyoncé’s Ivy Park, and Kim Kardashian’s Skims all lean heavily on bodysuits. Cool-girl clothing site Revolve has five times more entries for “bodysuit” than it does for “skirt.”
It’s easy to see why. Bodysuits are sexy. “I feel held in, I feel sexier, I feel like I can move around more,” says Norma Kamali, the iconic designer who helped popularize bodysuits in the ’70s and ’80s. “It just feels good.” Bodysuits cannot wrinkle, ride up, bunch, untuck, or unintentionally expose. You can wear them to sex, a workout class, or a business meeting. A bodysuit is a fast pass to the holy grail of modern dress: the elusive state of looking “put together.”
“You might think that wardrobe that fits snugly to your body would make you more uncomfortable,” says stylist Laurie Brucker, “but when you kind of feel that sucked-in feeling, it helps you to feel secure.” A great bodysuit makes you feel like you could be president of these United States. Perhaps that is why they are the outfit of choice for pop stars, superheroes, and Olympic gymnasts.
But even superheroes and pop stars have to pee. And the question, in a bodysuit, is: How? This really happened to me in the course of writing this article: I went on a date in a bodysuit. We went into a café, and I entered the single-stall bathroom. Inside I peed quickly. Then I spent what felt like several slow hours furiously trying to resnap my bodysuit over my crotch. I was sweating, shaking, performing a wildly impromptu gynecological examination on myself. When I stepped outside the bathroom, wild-eyed, my date was standing there. So were four women who had formed a line in the time I had been trying to snap my bodysuit.
I turned to the experts to find out what I am doing wrong.
“The idea of how you go to the bathroom, how you pee when you wear it, at the beginning was the big issue,” says Kamali. She recalls that people insisted they could not wear bodysuits, because they could not go to the bathroom. People demanded that she add snaps to the crotch of her designs, to facilitate peeing. She tried it but found that “the snaps are more uncomfortable than figuring out how to go to the bathroom.” Instead, Kamali’s bodysuits use fusible stretch elastic around the legs to make them easier to remove. “Putting snaps at your crotch, excuse me—it doesn’t make sense,” she says.
In fact, Kamali is adamant that if you even need to ask how to pee in a bodysuit, you already have your answer. “The people who need to be told how to pee shouldn’t be wearing a bodysuit,” she says. “You should forget it—it’s not for you, don’t worry about it. Wear a top. Do something else.”
A person who truly belongs in a bodysuit, says Kamali, does not think about the bathroom. That person thinks, I’ll figure it out. I want to wear this bodysuit, I don’t need anyone telling me how to pee. If you’re preoccupied by pee, says Kamali, “just don’t buy ’em. It’s not your lifestyle.”
Feeling gently negged by this advice, I tried Brucker, who works as a personal stylist. Her advice is simple: “Unsnap it, use the restroom, snap it back, pull on your bottoms.” Brucker acknowledges that snapping and resnapping is easier said than done. “When you’re in a rush to get back out somewhere and you’re fussing with the snaps to get them back on, I find that challenging,” she says. “It’s like when you’re in a rush and you’re trying to put the key in a key hole.” Indeed, as Shakepeare puts it, there’s the rub. Brucker says that some women put a leg up on the toilet or braced against the wall to make resnapping easier.
What about the option of pulling the crotch tab to the side? “If you’re in a rush, and time is of the essence, pull to the side!” says Brucker. “But you do run the risk of peeing on your hand…of having a little spillage, if you will.”
Now, what about the final, nuclear option—simply yanking the entire thing down, like a wrapper over a candy bar? “It’s not like it’s a wet bathing suit where it’s going to be impossible to pull it back up again, so it really is just a matter of what bottoms do you have, what kind of bathroom floor are you in,” Brucker says. At work or in a dirty bar, it might be better to use options one or two. But Brucker notes that bodysuit wearers who strip all the way down are in good company.
“J.Lo has to do it too!” she says. “When I think of J.Lo in a bodysuit, I’m like, ‘She’s also snapping and resnapping with her pants around her ankles when she’s in the bathroom!’” And it’s so true—we often seen J.Lo rocking a skintight bodysuit or voluminous jumpsuit on the red carpet. It is comforting to know that she also, later, feels the cool breeze of bathroom air over her entire body. In that sense, we are all in solidarity.
Despite these indignity, Brucker points out that we’re not chumps for wearing bodysuits. “The positive is that once you get it snapped and pull your pants up your outfit is solidly constructed and put together, you don’t have to worry about needing to retuck and shift.” Kamali agrees—the bodysuit has endured because it’s a piece that makes its wearer feel powerful. “So much of what we like to wear is because we feel good in it,” she says. “The bodysuit feels good on, and you don’t have to think of it.” And that’s final.
Until you’re in the bathroom stall, that is. And then you can just think of J.Lo.
