What is a bodysuit and why would I ever wear one? 
We know, at first everyone was hesitant to bodysuits because it kind of felt like a baby's onesie. BUT, once we got past that, we fell in love with the versatility of a bodysuit.
Bodysuits are one-piece, form-fitting garments that cover the torso and the crotch area. Bodysuits have a similar feel to a leotard or one-piece swimsuit, but the fabric is typically more of a tee shirt material. 
Cool girls everywhere opt for bodysuits so you can have that 'tucked in' look without the scrunching or wrinkling that comes with tucking in a shirt. They function the same was as a typical shirt (sans crop tops), but the added benefit is that there is a seamless transition from torso to legs. 
Most bodysuits also have the added benefit of a bit of tension from the shoulders to the crotch, which helps to accentuate your curves, which helps hold everything in and lift you up! All of these benefits make bodysuits the PERFECT base layer for any outfit!
How do I style a bodysuit? 
As Cady Heron would say, when it comes to styling bodysuits, "The limit does not exist." You can wear them with light or dark jeans, skirts, shorts, and pants - any bottoms you have on hand can be paired with a bodysuit. 
Remember the versatility we talked about? Bodysuit outfits can range from sleek, professional ensembles to sexy nightlife outfits that are sure to turn heads. If you're going for a casual, every day look, we recommend a looser fitting bodysuit, similar to a tee shirt or a tank top feel. These go great with basically anything, but for a more casual look we recommend pairing with denim shorts, distressed jeans, or a mini skirt. Throw on a pair of sneakers or slides and head out. 
If you're wanting more of a business casual outfit, pair a bodysuit with a trouser or skirt that's office appropriate. Because of the bodysuit's ability to be ultra-flattering, they are perfect for layering under a blazer, jacket, or cardigan for a professional setting.
When it's time to go out and party, the bodysuit will be your best friend! Both sexy and chic, the bodysuit's ability to go from office to night out is truly incredible. When it's time to go out, pair a sexier bodysuit (like one with an open back, plunging neckline, one shoulder, off-the-shoulder, or even lace lingerie types!) with a sexy short skirt, leather pants, or your favorite denim shorts or jeans. Pair with your favorite pair of heels and you've got a bodysuit outfit that all your friends (and your date!) will rave over.

Your Top Questions, Answered! 
Okay, now that we've got you on board with the idea of wearing bodysuits, now it's time to address that thing we mentioned's kinda like a onesie - how practical is it?! Here are the no-bull answers to your bodysuit questions. 
-What about pantylines? If you're worried about panty lines, the easiest solution is to opt for a thong style bodysuit to keep everything smooth when wearing slim silhouette garments. If you're not comfortable wearing a thong, it is possible to find cheeky cut bodysuits out there, but you'll have to be more careful when pairing with tighter bottoms to avoid the dreaded underwear lines. 
-Do I have to take it off to go to the bathroom? The short answer is, it depends. Some bodysuits have a single piece of fabric that makes up the bottom, so you'll have to strip allll the way down to use the restroom. Other bodysuits have a snap closure (yep, told you they're just like onesies!) that allows you to just unsnap and go. These have a tendency to be a little less comfortable for long term wear, so just keep that in mind when you're shopping. 
-What is the fit like? The fit for bodysuits can differ depending on the manufacturer. It's important to pay attention with sizing when it comes to bodysuits though because torso length plays a huge role in how they will fit you. Make sure to check product reviews or reach out to customer service to get more information on the fit of a specific bodysuit. 
-Can I wear a bodysuit with low cut bottoms? The short answer is yes! You can wear whatever the hell you want! BUT some people aren't comfortable with the higher cut bodysuits because they can show some skin above the waistline when wearing low rise bottoms. So just be mindful of that when picking out a bodysuit. If you're wanting to wear a bodysuit with low rise jeans and want it to be a seamless transition between bodysuit and bottoms, you'll want to go for a lower cut bodysuit. If you already have a higher cut bodysuit, we recommend pairing it with a high waisted bottom to ensure that no skin above the waistline is showing.
