Wearable Art: Why Bodysuits Are So Hot Right Now

Like athleisure, bodysuits have become an important fashion staple for the past few years.  So much so they’ve even seeped its way into haute couture shows and even this year’s Met Gala with Bella Hadid rocking a sheer and glittery Alexander Wang number.

And just recently, Refinery 29 featured the The Negative Underwear ‘Essaouira’ bodysuit in black, which has sold out a record FIVE TIMES since its release.

Here’s a version of the same bodysuit in white (still fabulous)

The ‘Essaouira’ is made with a stretch eyelet fabric that the label calls its “anti-lace,” Refinery reports. And the model has been worn by a multitude of famous names including Miley Cyrus, Hannah Bronfman, and Emily Ratajkowski.

Although bodysuits are de rigueur because they are super sexy and effortlessly hug close the body, the ones made without snappers certainly come with many drawbacks, and toilet challenges, and the pantless ones can ride up, leaving you with an unflattering wedgie.

As demonstrated perfectly by Mariah Carey:

However, despite the drawbacks, bodysuits are still fun to wear, and there are so many options to choose from, including from brands like Wolford, ASOS and Need Supply Co.

But if you need more inspiration: Take Rihanna’s Space-Age-Style-Goals look at Coachella.  Now that’s how to rock a bodysuit!
