Noticed the immense popularity of women’s bodysuits in Australia lately, but not sure when or how you’d wear one yourself? These are actually an incredibly versatile type of garment; not only can bodysuits be dressed both up and down, but depending on the design, they can potentially even be worn as outerwear or underwear to suit your mood!
Think of a bodysuit as a perfectly form-fitting top that won’t come untucked when you bend over or move about. But just like a top can look many different ways, bodysuits come in a huge variety of styles too. Here’s how to wear one for everything from a casual brunch to a day in the office:
How to Wear a Bodysuit as a Casual Basic
A bodysuit is a great alternative to a tank top or T-shirt for those low-key weekend outings. This type of bodysuit isn’t too fancy, it’s simply designed to blend into your outfit the way a classic white tee would.
To nail the look, pick a simple-looking bodysuit or one in a neutral colour that coordinates well with the rest of your outfit. Picture Parfait’s Mia Dot bodysuit in Cameo Rose paired with jeans and a chunky knit cardigan for example, or try mixing a plain-fabric bodysuit with a printed maxi skirt for a jazzier look.
How to Wear a Bodysuit as a Statement Piece
Want to make the bodysuit the star of the show? Pick an eye-catching design and style it with a skirt or trousers that are more understated, so the bodysuit steals all the attention.
If you choose it in a bolder colour, such as vibrant red, the Mia Dot bodysuit we’ve already mentioned is one of our favourite fashion-forward women’s bodysuits in Australia, and perfect for creating killer night-out looks. As well as the sexy strapping at the neckline, it features removable (and reversible) cup pads so you can wear it sheer as lingerie and then add some modesty when it’s time to hit the club!
How to Wear a Bodysuit as Part of your Workwear
A corporate environment calls for a smart-looking bodysuit in an opaque fabric, or if your office dress code errs a little more casual, perhaps a lace bodysuit worn just peeking out from under a tailored blazer or buttoned-up cardigan. Pick a less bra-like neckline (such as the horizontal neckline of Oh Zuza’s Patchwork Lace Bodysuit) to keep the look professional and office-appropriate.
How to Wear a Bodysuit as a Slimming Under-layer
Not into the idea of wearing bodysuits as outwear? That’s fine – not every trend is for every person! But you might still like to add a shaping bodysuit to your wardrobe. They’re excellent for smoothing your figure under special-occasion dresses, and you won’t have to worry about bra and panty lines either since a bodysuit can be worn instead of lingerie rather than over it.
Of all the shapewear-focused women’s bodysuits in Australia, Miraclesuit’s new Lycra® FitSense™ bodysuit is one of our very favourites because of its ultra-firm control and stylish art deco pattern.
Whatever bodysuit style you’re after – wired or underwired, sheer lace or opaque fabric – we’re sure to have one you’ll love. Check out our full collection of the best women’s bodysuits Australia has to offer, and remember, all orders at Style Gallery ship free!
