How I Wear the Spanx Bodysuit

If you’re tired of fussing around with tops that bunch up at the waist instead of neatly tucked in, you will be happy to know that bodysuits are back. They were popular in the ’80s but have made a sudden comeback, and that’s good news when you’re after a sexy, sleek look!

Here are a few bodysuits and how to style them including my favorite by Spanx.

1. Spanx Ribbed Bodysuit

Did you know Spanx makes bodysuits? When they sent me this black ribbed bodysuit to test drive, I really  didn’t think I was going to like it. I thought it might be feel and pull in the crotch and besides I hadn’t worn a bodysuit since I was a teen. But boy was I suprised! With all the high waisted body hugging leggings and pants out there a bodysuit makes sense!

This bodysuit has the same kind of wonderful Spanx technology that holds you in, smoothes out lumps and bumps and makes you look much more svlet that you really are. No worries about tops pulling out or hanging over. This ribbed neck mock stays put and makes your figure look fabulous.

It works with all my pants including these new favorites – the Spanx Twill stretch cropped pants. (similar color here) Check these out along with the bodysuit!




Bodysuits - Navy

2. Silky Bodysuit

This silky, draped blue bodysuit looks luxurious, like satin, but is 100% machine washable.  Dark blue looks very sophisticated, paired with black or gray. Add these darling plaid pumps to give your outfit a shot of personality!Bodysuit Trend - Orange Ribbed Bodysuit

3. Turtleneck Bodysuit

The turtleneck bodysuit is one sexy look. Turtlenecks can sometimes be bulky, making a midlife waist look even more matronly, but this sleek bodysuit eliminates that problem. Have you ever thought of wearing a vest over your turtleneck?

Shearling is trending, and this beautiful shearling vest looks rugged in a classy way worn over this warm orange bodysuit. Finish it with cowboy booties and a bucket bag, and you have a Western theme!

Bodysuits - Velvet


4. Velvet Bodysuit

Don’t you love velvet? It can make something as simple as a round-neck tee look like a million bucks. I love the breathtaking berry shade of this luxurious velvet bodysuit. Not only does this bodysuit look good, but it feels good, too. Pair it with classy wide-leg pants and strappy suede ankle shoes for an elegant vibe.

Bodysuits - Black

5. Black Bodysuit

If you want to try this trend safely, I suggest you try something like this black crisscross bodysuit. It is conservative, chic, and will go with everything. When your bodysuit fits, the rest of your outfit slides on. A streamlined bodysuit look will help your body look longer and leaner.


Will you be buying a bodysuit this fall? How will you style it?

  1. Thank goodness for you and your advice. You offer very elegant and age-appropriate suggestions. I want to look like an elegant woman of a certain age, not some older woman trying to look 20, and bodysuits are challenging to navigate, but your suggestions help.

    1. Hi Sandra, So happy you dropped by. It’s always tricky, isn’t it? Looking modern but wanting to be young. That’s why I like classic clothes with a modern twist, like a fashion-forward detail or a trending color. Less is more. I find bodysuits are a good way to slim out those flabby bits that can hang over pants when you want to look extra sleek. I’m glad this article helped. Let me know what else you would like me to write about. Cheers, Deb

  2. I fell in love wearing that look in high school (back then, 1988-1992: it was EVERYWHERE). While I (obviously, lol!) don’t have the waistline, I had then (aarrgghh!), I fully agree with the turtleneck style paired with jeans (a moto jacket or poncho is what I throw over mine) being a modern classic that’s just the right amount of flirty FOR ANY AGE(!).

    The only problem with a lot of fashion bodysuits now, I find, is they tend not to be full coverage in the back. I mean(?), if you’re going to have to forego wearing underthings to avoid twice the VPL from darting across your bum: I DON’T want anything otherwise cut like ridiculous novelty lingerie(!). Back when the entire Dance aesthetic was “en vogue” (in the ’80s): companies like (the original) Danskin were (then) still in their heyday, and, most of the time, I used (what they used to call) “full-fashioned” leotards as bodysuits. The necklines on those were at least accommodating of a bra underneath.

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
