Until recently, bodysuits were considered outdated and passé , a relic of the eighties and early nineties. However, along with numerous other trends from the same time period, they have experienced a bit of a comeback, popping up on designer runways and trendy websites alike.
As a functional garment, they are incredibly useful; creating a seamless look when paired with skirts or pants and providing the wearer with the confidence that comes with a no-fuss outfit. You will never have to worry about coming un-tucked and you will never have to worry about excess material adding unnecessary bulk to your frame, especially around the sensitive waistline.
If you too have noticed the bodysuit’s resurgence and feel like your wardrobe would benefit from one (or more), here are a few of my favorites:
Adea’s ¾ Sleeve Crew Neck Bodysuit
The useful base layer features a simple silhouette and a bracelet-length sleeve.
Nasty Gal’s “Frida” Bodysuit
This pretty off-the-shoulder option with a sweetheart neckline has just the right mix of sexy and sweet.
Victoria’s Secret’s Essential Poplin Bodysuit
The classic menswear-inspired white button-up becomes infinitely more wearable when reinterpreted as a bodysuit.
American Apparel’s “Cross V” Bodysuit
This suit’s flattering faux-wrap neckline elongates the figure and highlights the waist.

Americans love people with lots of spirit – individuals who are willing to push boundaries – in the best sense of the word. And, Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, has done this with her flair for fashions that really work. This is why we love her.
After reading about Dolce & Gabbana’s new shop at 155 Mercer Street in Manhattan’s SoHo, I decided to pay a visit to see these digs for myself. On Friday, August 17th when it was close to 90 degrees F. I took the Downtown #6 subway and got off at Spring Street (a 10-minute trip). This left me at Spring/Lafayette and from there I walked west to Mercer where I crossed the street and took a short walk to 155 – all told a fairly easy jaunt.
There is something fun about watching the designer's vision on the runway. Yes, not all of the looks are practical, but it helps to bring what once were drawings and ideas to life. That part of the creative process is interesting to me. When it comes to street style, I have grown to appreciate this fashion scene.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
