How to buy plus size bodysuit?



As plus size women, our bodies are not perfect. Maybe sometimes you wish you looked five pounds lighter, or could wear a smaller dress. Or you want more perky boobs or more perky ass. Or really don't want bra/back fat, muffin tops, pot belly or bumpy cellulite ruining your lines.

If you don't want to talk about some body positivity, the good news is that the right plus size bodysuit can handle any or all of these issues. In fact, a bodysuit can temporarily "concentrate" your fat and even redistribute it to make it look more flattering. It can give you a slimmer, more streamlined silhouette while helping your clothes sit better and be more flattering.

But where do you start looking for the right bodysuit? Consider the following tips:


Torso length is critical to a perfectly fitting bodysuit. It's more like buying a one-piece swimsuit than a top. You'll want enough length that doesn't give you a permanent marriage, but not any excess fabric (which turns clean bodysuit-like lines into bag city). The first time you put on a thong bodysuit or other type of bodysuit, be sure to wear what you would wear and do a few squats to see how it moves. 

Overall fit

Before buying, consider your bodysuit size for the bust, hip and belly area. You'll want the bodysuit to fit your body shape and not leave a gap from being pulled too tight under the bust. If there is any chest or underarm spillage, choose a larger size. It's important to try on before buying, as bodysuit size charts may not always tell the whole story.

Likewise, if the bodysuit creates a cheeky dent in your hips, you will need to adjust the size or consider wearing a thong bodysuit.

In any case, the bodysuit should feel comfortable without being tight, and it should provide the gentle smoothing you want


Bodysuits can be made from almost any clothing material. From soft t-shirt material to all lace. They can be sheer or opaque, low or high neck, backless or lace-up, long-sleeved or sleeveless. Bodysuits are usually made from materials that are stretchy, comfortable, or form-fitting. Usually, they are made of the same material throughout the garment. Sometimes the top and bottom materials are different! This is especially the case if the top is more flowy or button-down shirts, which are then attached to stretchy panties.

Online shopping vs. In store shopping

Although buying bodysuits online may seem like a good idea due to the wide selection and affordable prices, I highly recommend checking out bodysuits first. You can also try on the bodysuit, which will allow you to check it "on the go" Walk, sit and move around in the bodysuit. In turn, it will help to know if this is right for you, the comfort it provides, whether it stays in place and any other points to be aware of.

However, if you're looking to shop online anyway, it's a smart idea to double-check the shipping/return/exchange policy (look for free shipping and free returns) and start ordering, Isabeleros's online sale might be a good option.

Garment Care

How should you care for your new bodysuit? The key thing to remember is that it should last a few times before needing a wash. Of course, it depends on what you've been doing. It's true, though, that a few abrasions between washes can prevent damage from overwashing and overwearing. If you can hand wash it is fine, if not, stick to the gentlest cycle and don't tumble dry! Do not wring water out of the bodysuit as this can damage the fabric.

No matter your body type, you can find the right style and look to complement your figure. Wearing a bodysuit isn't about turning your body into something it can't be -- it's about celebrating your body and natural curves.The right bodysuit can help you look and feel your best in all your favorite clothes, so you can do all the things you love.
