About three years ago, I ordered my first bodysuit online. I’d always wanted to try them out. I love seeing them on my girlfriend and felt they’d be fun to wear. And that first one I got was fun to wear, but it wasn’t really the right fit for me. It had spaghetti straps, which I don’t think was the right look or feel on me, and it didn’t feel substantial enough across the chest.
A year or so later I tried out a different bodysuit – a different designer and fabric. This second one was a thong, which I really liked, but the sides and the chest had an extreme, deep cut that I didn’t really like; I didn’t feel supported or contained by this suit, and while I liked the thong, in the end, this second one didn’t really do too much for me. So like my first bodysuit, this second one just got worn a few times and was chalked-up as a disappointing experiment.
A few weeks ago, I decided to give bodysuits one more chance and got the new Men’s Bodysuit from the upstart designer Ace + Indigo. And now I can finally say that I love wearing a bodysuit!
The real distinction in this bodysuit for me is the cut. I love the racerback straps across the shoulders and chest. It feels comfortable and supportive, and also substantial enough that I would feel comfortable wearing it as a “shirt.” I also love how it feels down below too. I don’t feel the snaps at all, and I like the feel across the chest, I feel supported and comfortably tugged in.
Thinking on all three of the bodysuits I’ve tried, I can offer a small recommendation. If you are like me, you are looking for something that will be flattering and fun to wear, the cut is essential. With a bodysuit, however, it seems a little different in that you need to account for how it fits across your chest and upper body as well as how it works down below. In a way, it is both a t-shirt and underwear, and it is important that it feels good all across your body. I like something that feels snug all across my body, but also supportive and contained.
And like everything I’ve tried from Ace + Indigo, I totally love the fabric! The modal is so smooth, soft and delicate. The small amount of elastane blended in gives the bodysuit a great stretch, and a really comfortable and flattering form-fitting look. I recommend you all give it a try, and also hope that Ace + Indigo will consider designing a thong bodysuit – if they do it will definitely be on my wish list!
Signing off for now,
Hi, I’ve been wearing bodysuits and have recently started wearing more the bodysuits with the snap crotch. I like them a little tight and the snaps are no problem to get to work. I have no problem with the snaps between the legs. I wear bodysuits 24/7.
