The first and most important thing you should do is to find the right bodysuit size for your body, so you should definitely try it on before you buy it. Make sure that nothing tightens your skin and you can breathe and move freely. Of course, it is possible that some fabrics can stretch further over time, especially in the tummy area, but it is important to feel comfortable in the bodysuit from the start. In fact, it’s a very good idea to opt for stretchy fabrics that are flexible and will fit your body perfectly while not causing you discomfort.

Opt for Bodysuits with Adjustable Features

Adjustable straps will definitely benefit you and make wearing bodysuits much more enjoyable and comfortable for you. In addition, on some models, the waist area can also be adjusted, which is key for women with larger bellies. What we mean is that you should always aim to find a comfortable option that suits your needs.

Draw Attention Away from the Belly Area

When choosing what bodysuit to buy, it would be a good idea to pay more attention to the design itself. For example, you could look for ones with more details such as unique prints, patterns, embroidery or draping that would draw attention away from your belly area. What is more, an interesting neckline could also work for you.

Layering and Combining with Other Clothes

When we talk about combining bodysuits with other clothes, we can’t miss layering as a successful technique for chubby ladies. For example, you can add a blazer, denim jacket or cardigan that will cover up some imperfections and shape your silhouette for a more balanced look. In this line of thought, make sure to add accessories to the outfit that will definitely attract attention and thus distract from your belly.

The bodysuit can be best paired with high-waisted trousers, skirts or jeans, which will hide the belly and contribute to a stylish and modern look. Go for looser fitting and flared skirts, and as for trousers – those with wide legs will balance and shape the figure best. But in general, you could pair the bodysuit with almost anything you can think of from your wardrobe. It’s a good idea to have at least a few, and in neutral colors, as you’ll have the most options for matching with other clothes.

Look and Feel Confident
