Style Obsession: Bringing the Bodysuit Back
No, we’re not kidding. Remember the bodysuit? (No, no, not jumpsuit — bodysuit). Maybe you saw one pulled from your mother’s closet in 1987. Perhaps as an awkward youngster in ’91, you donned your own leotard-like style.
There was a reason bodysuits went out of style: They were uncomfortable. Eventually women revolted against the one-style-fits-all suit.
But, what if…someone addressed all of those issues, and brought back the bodysuit with a vengeance? Even a new name? Bradamant‘s “bodyshirts” are doing just that. And they’re actually really cute! (We know, it’s crazy!) First thing’s first: the crotch snaps are not hook-and-eye closures to avoid that untimely unsnapping. Plus, instead of putting the closures where it’s practically impossible to reach (unless you’re a dancer in Cirque du Soleil), they’ve been moved forward, so slipping into a bodyshirt is as easy as 1, 2, 3 closures.
Also, Bradamant makes a variety of bodyshirts that look like actual blouses, as opposed to leftover leotards from your dancing days. One features soft leather insets and an exposed front zip while another flaunts a structured poplin neckline rivaled by runways (coming for Fall 2013).
They actually feature full-coverage panties, swear by no visible panty lines, and even have formed the derriere of these little one-pieces to give your bum some extra lift. This is not your momma’s bodysuit, girls. These are wardrobe staples that are back and better than before. See for yourself.
