The Best Black Bodysuits

6 July

This is officially the summer of the black bodysuit for me.  Tanner asked me why I’ve never worn them before (he’s a fan!) but I think having been pregnant and then still feeling soft around the mid-section last summer, I’m feeling much more confident about wearing them this season hence my obsession.  They have that “not trying too hard”–casual yet still a bit sexy summer feel–and instantly make me realize those killer morning workouts are so worth it.  I wear them both day and night or will swap whatever tee I’ve been wearing throughout the day with Rex, for a black bodysuit for an evening out.  It makes getting dressed in a pinch so mindless.  No need to think about what to tuck or untuck, and also they’re ideal for layering under your slip and sun dresses.  I’ve accumulated quite the collection of black ones in particular as they’re the most flattering, and wanted to share the best ones I’ve found this summer.

Best Black Bodysuits  |  1.  The Henley.  Currently, this henley tee style from Modern Citizen is right at the top for me.  First, because it’s super soft and comfy (like your favorite henley) but also because it has snaps at the bottom making going to the bathroom much less of an annoying situation.  You know what I mean ladies!

2.  The V-Neck.  My second go-to this summer, is this v-neck style from Reformation (another great affordable one).  Perfect sexy date night look!  I pair mine with slip skirts.

3.  Ballet Style.  And another great brand for bodysuits to layer under a dress, is Commando.  I love their simple ballet sleeve top.  This one is a thong so it’s great for a seamless panty line.

4.  Straight Neck Tank.  I have and love this style in multiple colors but black is still my go-to.  I like this one for layering underneath my slip and summer sun dresses.

I know bodysuits can be hard, especially if you have a longer torso so it might be best to order multiple styles to see what fit your body type the best!
