The Body Suit From The 90s Is Coming Back In Style

Nov 10, 2007
The body suit is a multi-function clothing option. Body suits can range from supportive undergarments to everyday outer wear to sexy lingerie. Similar to a leotard but often with snaps in the crotch, body suits come in a variety of fabrics, colors, and styles.

Supportive body suit undergarments are designed to help you look better in your clothes. They help to hold you in where you need it and to smooth your body. There are body suits that are slimming and help disguise extra weight. These help you clothes to fit properly and you will look better. Styles come in varying degrees of support as well as differing styles. You can purchase a supportive body suit that targets only certain areas or ones that slim all over, depending on what your needs are.

Alternatively, there are support body suits that create shape where there wasn't any or where you may feel you need a bit more shaping. There are suits that can lift the bottom up a bit or pad it out a little for curvier styles. There are also body suits that can help lift, shape or even augment your bustline as well as holding you in for strapless clothing designs. Whether you need to slim down or shape up, there are many alternatives available.

Another use for supportive body suits is in athletic competition such as biking. A full-bodied style of support body suit makes the wearer more aerodynamic and reduces wind resistance. With biking, the smoother style and reduction of friction can give them that little boost of speed in order to be a successful competitor. The same principle applies to water resistance in water sports, as well.

Body suits as everyday shirts were very popular in the 1990's. These body suits had the snaps in the crotch which gave you a shirt that wouldn't come untucked but still allowed easy access when one had to go to the bathroom. Unfortunately, sizing these body suits was difficult. Often styles would be too short or too long in the crotch for most women. This made them uncomfortable to wear all day and the style fell from fashion after a few years.

Of course, the lingerie has found many ways to adapt the body suit to make sexy night apparel. Everyone has seen a version of the ever popular teddy in every type of material from satin to lace. Another option is the full neck to foot body suit. This can be a very sexy choice when made of spandex and lace. Other materials for those intimate moments can include rubber or leather for the more daring people.

As you can see, there are many choices when it comes to body suits. Slimming in the right spots or shaping up spots that need a little lift, support body suits will always be popular. While body suits are not as common a choice anymore for outer wear, if you search there are still some available. Body suits as lingerie come in an almost infinite variety for any tastes imaginable. There are few clothing options as versatile as the body suit.
