Bodysuits. They're back. Oh yes!

In 1986 Donna Karan included bodysuits in her "7 Easy Peices" of women's wear. Recently I was out shopping and was excited (I'm rather surprised by this) to see bodysuits on the racks in stores. I used to wear bodysuits back in middle school and they were so uncomfortable-I remember thinking they were really cute on but halfway through the day I was in pain-probably because they buttoned at the crotch and one can only stand metal grommets in that area for so long...

Anyhow, the bodysuit I tried on was made of a very stretchy, comfortable, breathable cotton that did not button down below which will prove interesting when it is time to go--->
I also bought a size larger than normal for comfort.

American Apparel bodysuit, various colors, styles, & price ranges-this one is $36

So friends-are you going to be rocking this trend???
Luv & smiles,

Kim-you crack me up! Yea I can see that being quite a dilemma.
Kirsty-don't knock it til ya try it (wink.)

I will let you all know how my first day wearing a bodysuit goes. I have yet to wear the one I bought yet-but at $3.50, it wasn't a bad "research" investment. Ha!

Oh, I am all over it. All of mine are thrifted/vintage for now, but I will probably buy some new ones as well. Those american apparel low back ones are calling to me.

Mmm.. I remember in jr high and it was literally a PITA - but interesting to see them come back w/out snaps. Let me know ow your bathroom adventures go - I'll have to weight the options before I can jump into one again. :)

I can't help but think of camel toe when I see a body suit. HAHAHA. But I also don't think big girls should rock the body suit. You, on the other hand, are adorable.

I had a merino wool bodysuit back in the day. Not very comfortable!
