Bodysuits are one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your wardrobe. Finding a good one is near impossible. Right now the market is saturated with cheap, poorly made fashion items that won’t last past their first wash, that’s if you find one to fit you first! When Real Underwear contacted me a week ago and asked if I would like to try one of their products, I was hoping this style would be sent my way!
I received this seamless lace bodysuit in a size medium. That’s my ‘normal’ size I go for in bodysuits. I’m always trying to find a balance of long enough for the torso, big enough for the boobs, small enough for the waist. When I first tried it on I was so happy. It actually fits!!! Honestly I think I would fit a small better but I wasn’t willing to take that chance. My advice is take the size you normally wear in briefs. This knit fabric is very stretch so it can accommodate a lot of different body shapes. The fabric is very smooth and comfortable. I feel like this bodysuit could be used as dance-wear, lingerie as well as just regular clothing. It has that cross over appeal. The brand as a whole fits the need we have of our clothes to do more. I can see myself taking this piece on holidays as it’s very lightweight, easy to wash and a versatile piece to style.
This style has hook and eye closures at the gusset. I much prefer the hook and eyes over the press studs, I find them less bulky and more comfortable. There are no itchy spots when I wear this and the binding doesn’t cut into my bum too much. I would say this bodysuit is seamless everywhere but on the binding. This is only really an issue if you plan on wearing it with a slinky silk skirt or something similar. The real winning part of this bodysuit is how the knit fabric is used to show just enough skin. I’ve seen similar bodysuits like this on the market, but they seem to show too much or not enough. I think this is the perfect balance of sheer and opaque, I could actually get away with not wearing a bra with this and not worrying about showing too much.
This company seems to be fairly new to selling direct to consumer as they have just launched their website. So far there are a few styles on the website but I’m hoping to see more in the near future. Everyone knows I love comfortable, practical underwear that still looks good. I think this company has done well to fill that void and I can’t wait to see what this small New York based company does next.
Seamless Lace bodysuit is available in sizes S-XL and colours jet black and faded parchment. It retails for $58 USD and is available to purchase on realunderwear.com
