Leotard or body suit

I hesitate to recommend you wearing a leotard with a skirt or trousers

One simple piece of clothing

available in a variety of colours and styles

Worn with one other piece of clothing

skirts trousers shorts

Leotards pull you in and make you feel in charge and in control

Plus the whole simplicity of a leotard is appealing

Leotards have been having a quiet fashion moment for a while

On the other hand leotards are quite impractical

and at Working Frocks we give practical style advice

Leotards involve a lot of undressing each time you pay a visit to the bathroom

So although they are just one piece of clothing worn with one other piece of clothing

and so rate highly on the less clothes worn scale

They are impractical

Body suits have poppers

Let’s go with body suit

The fashion word of the moment is leotard

but a body suit is going to be more practical

If you haven’t worn a body suit in a long time or ever

Here are three styling tips to help you

First make sure it’s comfortable

Body suits are generally available in good proportions for standard sizing

But if your body is longer or shorter than average

then either the body suit will be too long or too short

and feel uncomfortable

Second choose one that you really like

So if you normally wear sleeves

don’t buy a sleeveless one because it looks fun

You’ll probably avoid wearing it when you get it home

because it doesn’t have sleeves

Choose a neckline that you love and want to wear

One of the great advantages of a body suit is the variety of necklines available

some of them asymetric and directional

So if you like the idea of a new look then

a fashion forward body suit is a great way of updating your wardrobe

Third

Bear in mind that body suits might require you to make a shift in your thinking

about yourself

They are clean, sleek, confident garments

and will challenge you to raise your game

If you are looking for a change in style and

are bored of your wardrobe or

feel frumpy

and want to look and feel empowered confident and

sexy

A body suit is the way to go

Enjoy
