Bodysuits as outerwear: 4 ways to style your lingerie outside the bedroom

Your sexy bodysuits are not just for spicing up your bedroom. From lace and black mesh designs to deep V neck bodysuits, here is how your lingerie can also be a part of your #ootd

What’s not to love about women’s bodysuits? They hug and enhance your curves, are super comfortable and do not bunch up around your waistline for a sleek look when worn as outerwear.

Bodysuits are also super easy to choose as they come in sizes S, M, L instead of cup sizes and often have adjustable straps so they can fit a wide range of body types. This makes them ideal for the next time you need some online shopping retail therapy!

But if you have been sticking to mostly t-shirt or athleisure style bodysuits, you are missing out. Did you know, you can also style up sexy lingerie such as mesh or lace one piece bodysuits as outfits?

In fact, your boudoir outfits are an eye catching way to spice up your daily outfits with ease. Here are 4 sexy bodysuit-as-outerwear ideas to show off your personal style.

How to wear bodysuit as outerwear 2021

1. Deep V neck lace bodysuit with high waisted pants

For a playful yet racy look, pair a timeless sexy lace bodysuit with high waisted hot shorts or jeans to balance out the plunging top. The Bluebella Natalia body playsuit, which has beautiful scalloped lace edges and a chic halterneck, is a classic that will always look stylish.

For even more glamour, Bluebella’s Skylar thong bodysuit with a sexy low back is embellished with sequins.

You can dress your outfit down with sneakers and cool sunglasses for a fun summer festival vibe. Or slip on sexy high heels and metallic jewellery for a big night out. Either way, you will look sizzling!

2.Cut-out or open waist bodysuit with low rise, oversized pants

Show off the sensual side to this season’s trending low rise pants by wearing them with bodysuits that have cutout details at the waist for a peekaboo effect. To complement your fitted bodysuit, pick pants that have a straight or baggy leg. We love Unleash/ed’s Tacita high cut thong bodysuit, which has strategic cutouts at the waist for a visually slimming effect. If you feel you need a little more coverage, wearing nipple pasties under your bodysuit or throwing on a cropped jacket over your shoulders will do the trick.

For the very daring, choose really low slung pants for a sexy flash of your hip bones. Chic and provocative!

3. A feminine lace bodysuit with a circle skirt

For a more ladylike look, be inspired by lovely ballerina costumes. Pick a feminine bodysuit style, like the Unleash/ed Bellerose bodysuit which has gorgeous butterfly and botanical embroidery as well as soft pink sheer mesh and lace panels. Pair it with a flared or tutu skirt and ballet flats to complete the look and you are ready for a romantic date.

4. A striped bodysuit with skinny jeans

For days when you feel like you could use an #ootd with a slimming effect, pick out a bodysuit with vertical stripes. The body hugging design plus the stripes will work wonders at enhancing your contours so that you look curvier and create the appearance of a slimmer waist. We love the Callista red lace bodysuit by Unleash/ed which has a tantalising striped mesh bodice that is super flattering and visually slims the waist down.

Wear this with skinny jeans or even a pencil skirt to further streamline your silhouette and emphasise your curves. You go girl!

5Sheer or mesh bodysuit under an unbuttoned shirt

Beginners who are trying this trend for the first time, fret not. If wearing a bodysuit feels a little too revealing for you, simply wear a shirt over your bodysuit of choice. You can consider the versatile Unleash/ed Chelsey bodysuit which has sheer black lace and keyhole cutouts for a hint of tease.

A shirt will feel less formal compared to a jacket (although you can do that too!) while still providing some coverage. For a hint of sexiness, do not button your shirt up all the way to show off a tantalising flash of cleavage.

With so many styles of lingerie style bodysuits to explore, there is certainly one for every style and body type. For more outfit inspiration, check out the full range of bodysuits on Avec Amour now!
