This one-piece, designer garment is usually worn by women and covers only the upper body and branch area. The body suit is normally worn with a skirt or trousers, but in recent times it has developed into lingerie, foundation garments and active use. There are even bodysuit shapers that are used for shaping purposes. Since not all women have the same physical needs, choosing the right bodysuit will be a crucial part of shopping for this clothing.
Know what type of body suit you need
- Body suits are available in types of shape wear, which are made of elastic material that gives a narrower effect and support for most of the upper body. This type is best used as underwear to be worn with a skirt or trousers over.
- There is also the body suit for outerwear, which has a top that can be worn as tops that do not bulge or swing around. These can also be worn with pants, jeans and skirts. These were very popular in the 1990s, but lost popularity due to size restrictions.
- There are also lingerie body suits that are lacy and sexy, best as bridal lingerie and also as a white top.
Know your body shape
Not all body shapes take as many different types of body suit. For the triangular shaped women, it is ideal to go for a body suit that takes in the stomach. Rectangular shapes will do well with a full-body suit, while the rounder women will do with a camisole or regular bodysuit.
