When it comes to shopping for bodysuits there can be an overwhelming amount of options in a range of different fabrics, cuts, and styles. Figuring out what fits and feels best for you can take some trial and error. This process can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. We’d like to start off by saying that there is no “right” way to dress. Unless there’s a requirement given by your studio, it’s all subjective. In this post, we’ll highlight some different types of bodysuits and what effect they tend to have on the overall appearance of the body.
Thin Strap Bodysuits
Thin straps (sometimes called spaghetti straps or cami straps) are used often on dance bodysuits. These straps really highlight broad shoulders and allow the collarbones to shine. Sometimes thin straps are adjustable to help get that perfect fit.
Cap Sleeve Bodysuit
These bodysuits look like they have little t-shirt sleeves on the arms. These are good at broadening the appearance of the shoulders.
Thick Strap Bodysuits
Thick straps are comfortable and typically stay in place well. They also hide bra straps well for anyone who likes to wear a bra under their bodysuit.
Boat Neck Bodysuits
This elegantly curved neckline is a beautiful way to offer coverage in the front while lengthening the appearance of the neck.
V Neck Bodysuits
V neck cuts can dramatically elongate the appearance of the neck. They don’t provide much in the way of coverage or support in the front.
Mock Neck Bodysuits
Mock neck bodysuits look almost like a turtleneck, but without the excess fabric. These trendy bodysuits offer a high amount of coverage in the front and rarely slide around which makes them feel secure on the body.
Long Sleeve Bodysuit
These bodysuits are elegant and can provide a lot of coverage. They’re especially nice in the winter months to help stay warm.
Princess Seamed Bodysuit
Princess seams are two parallel seams that run up the front of the torso. These elongate the line of the body.
