Bodysuits are a modern blessing. They’ve come into their own in the past few years as a solid wardrobe staple and we couldn’t be happier with the wide range of super easy-to-wear, versatile bodysuits available. We love the all-over smoothing a bodysuit provides to enhance our silhouettes in a chic way.
Consider wearing a thong bodysuit with a satin skirt for a dressier, seamless look, or go more casual with jeans without having to worry about lumps from tucking in a shirt. Bodysuits also provide a simple, seamless layer underneath leather or denim jackets.
Wondering how to find the perfect bodysuit for you? Selecting your right bodysuit depends on a few factors. In addition to consulting a bodysuit size chart, here are some things to consider:
Bodysuit Sizing Based on Length
The first thing to think about when it comes bodysuit sizing is the length. Do you have a long torso, average, or is it on the shorter side?
You’ll want enough fabric length-wise to cover you without it riding up or being too baggy. When wearing a thong bodysuit or other type for the first time, be sure you are wearing the bra you will wear with it and do a few squats to see how it moves.
Give some thought to the bodysuit sizing through the bust, bum, and tummy area before purchasing. You’ll want the bodysuit to fit to your form without any gaps from being stretched too taut under the chest. If there is any chest or underarm spillage, opt for a larger size. It’s important to try on before purchasing, because a bodysuit size chart may not always tell the whole story.
Likewise, if a bodysuit is causing a cheeky indent on your bum, you’ll want to size up or consider wearing a thong bodysuit instead. Again, be sure to try on the bodysuit with the bra you will be wearing to see how it affects the straps and neckline.
Setting: Where You’ll Be Wearing a Thong BodysuitThe final thing you’ll want to consider when selecting a bodysuit is the setting in which you’ll be wearing it. You likely won’t want to wear a bodysuit with a plunging neckline to a formal dinner, nor would you want a long-sleeve version for a Fourth of July picnic.
Providing all-day comfort and support, bodysuits are a warm-weather essential we’ll be packing wherever our wanderlust leads us. We hope this bodysuit sizing and fit guide helps you choose the perfect one – or two, or three. Because truthfully you can never have enough of something that makes you look and feel amazing.
