How To Wear A Bodysuit?

Find Out With Our Bodysuit Style Guide!

Bravissimo girls have you ever wondered how to wear a bodysuit? Look no further - we’re here to help you navigate our collection of bodysuits to choose one that you feel confident and amazing in! Whether you’re looking for comfy bodysuits for everyday or want to perk up your partywear – we’ve got options that we hope will leave you feeling spoilt for choice (whether you choose to show it off or keep it under wraps just for you!).


What is a bodysuit?

A bodysuit is a one-piece style that can be worn as underwear or outerwear – it all depends on the style of body and how you want to wear it! They usually have lovely lace detailing and tummy control to give a smoothing, seamless look with no VPL and they’re easy to tuck into bottoms (yay!).

Some fasten with poppers at the bottom (so they’re easy to get on and off) and with other styles of bodysuits you need to step into them to get them on – it’s all about finding what works best for you.

For us Bravissimo girls, there are many bodysuits for bigger busts available that have a built-in bra, with or without wires, to give those of us blessed with bigger boobs the support that we need.

Bodysuits really do come in all shapes and sizes (and styles!) – we’re here to help you find a style of bodysuit that you feel confident in whether you’re keeping it under wraps just for you or rocking them as outerwear!

What is the point of a bodysuit?

Bodies are great for their versatility – from smoothing underwear styles for everyday or as lacy evening tops, there are so many ways they can be worn! Bodysuits are a great option for underwear that works underneath lots of outfits as they hug your fabulous figure and mean you can wave goodbye to VPL under clothing!

A bodysuit will sit seamlessly and some have tummy control to hug your figure in all the right places! Bodysuits are great as a top too as they stay tucked into jeans and skirts so there’s no material bunching around your waist - bonus!


Do you wear a bra with a bodysuit?

The answer is... it depends on the kind of bodysuit and support that you’re looking for! Some bodysuits come with a built-in bra which are great if you're wanting extra support and uplift. Other types of bodies give you the choice to wear your own bra so you can achieve that seamless look with the perfect support from your favourite bra in your bra-drobe.

How to choose a bodysuit?

Whether you want a bodysuit offering uplifting support and a seamless look under clothing, a casual daytime body or you want a bodysuit perfect for a night out, we have bodies for any body!

Our Bravissimo girl favourite, the Envy body, has an underwired top half that offers the same fit and support as the Envy bra, so it gives great support whilst the power mesh provides light tummy control – it’s the best of both worlds! Plus, the lovely lace detail and bra means that it’s ideal to wear as outerwear. For a more casual option why not try the Non-Padded Bodysuit with Built-In Bra? It’s based on our Vest Top with Built-In Bra design but in a bodysuit style, so it tucks seamlessly into shorts or skirts for a daytime look or can be layered under tops and jumpers in winter for an extra layer for those chilly days!

If you already have your favourite bra that uplifts you in every-way, the Wear Your Own Bra Body gives an all over smoothing and shaping look whilst giving you the flexibility to wear any bra you want. We love to give you options – why not browse our full range of bodies.
