It is no secret that certain types of clothing appear to wear better with a specific type of undergarment. There are various options for separates with many features such as seamless, push-up and support but lately, I’ve come to favor the sculpting shapewear bodysuit. I remember my mother wearing these in her 20’s when she dressed up for cool parties but I never understood why. Until now.
A major reason to invest in a shapewear bodysuit is that it is essentially an all-in-one support solution. This one undergarment can support the chest, waist, tummy, hips, butt, and thighs. The first time I tried a shapewear bodysuit I immediately understood why my mom wore them. One undergarment to snatch all the right places is a no brainer. I wear mine with many different outfits but find it comes in handy the most when I wear form-fitting dresses and really want overall support that lifts & holds basically everything.
The mere convenience of having just one undergarment to deal with is bliss during an evening out. The worst part of dressing up for parties is the moment my undergarments start shifting and I’m standing in a crowded room resisting the urge to adjust all the things. In my experience shapewear bodysuits have remained perfectly in place 99% of the time. When I do need to wear separates though, I find that shorts and slips that are high waisted do not roll as much and briefs seem to shift less than bikini-style underwear.
Shapewear bodysuits can have such versatility and I love it! You can find them with a plunging back or neckline, removable straps, with sleeves or sleeveless. You can go for the traditional bodysuit shape, a dress or shorts. They are also available in more colors, sizes, and materials these days. I mostly go for black but I do have a few that are a close match to my skin tone which is great for clothes that have sheer areas. With so many options, a shapewear bodysuit can be the perfect undergarment for a majority of outfits.
