For the masculine of the species, a suit is something functional and purposeful. Add a ‘body’ and you get something so much more – beguilingly beautiful, perfectly proportioned and super sexy. A bodysuit keeps your curves in check, flatters your figure and can turn any Diana Prince into a superhero of seduction (if you don’t know who Diana Prince is – shame on you).
Believe it or not, women’s bodysuits aren’t actually that old. I don’t mean the one lingering at the bottom of your lingerie draw. I mean in the grand old history of all things lingerie, the bodysuit was an only invented 60-or-so years ago. First worn by pin-up model Bettie Page in the 1950s. Originally designed as something functional that could be worn instead of a t-shirt, it soon became synonymous with all things sexy when it became the trademark fashion for Playboy Bunnies and then later as Wonder Woman’s superhero costume of choice. Within a couple of decades, the bodysuit had proved itself worthy in the lingerie limelight as all things to all women. Useful by day, seductive by night; that one investment piece of lingerie no gal should be without.
These days, this brilliant bit of lingerie luxury has proven itself to be totally versatile. With a bodysuit for any occasion – how daring you go is up to you. From the simple long-sleeve jersey basic and a pair of jeans at the weekend, to the strappy, seductive and salacious bodysuits with only one thing in mind (if you catch my drift wink wink). However you wear it, you’ll be sure your body(suit) does the talking and heads get turned…
A bodysuit is great to wear during the day, outerwear or underwear alike – although I’d maybe go for something a little less see through if you choose the former. Figure flattering and fabulously feminine, you’ll be sure to feel fabulous in one of these creations.
The White Choker Plunge Bodysuit from Pink Lipstick Lingerie is a great example of a bodysuit that would look great as outerwear. Paired with a skirt or jeans, you can really dress this up or down to suit the occasion. Its seductive without showing off too much. The choker neckline and cut-out chest focuses all the attention to the right places and the thong back is a nice little surprise for anyone who might be taking it off later.
This teal plus bodysuit is my personal idea of lingerie heaven. This Teal Open Back Teddy from Escante is simply divine. Sexy and scalloped floral lace with an open back for interest. From day to night, it’s something you can wear under anything, but whatever you wear it with, it’ll have you feeling super sexy from the onset.
This Black Crochet Lace Body from Casmir is a perfect pairing with any suit. Its sexy black pinstripe and crochet lace body with mesh sides features underwired cups and a satin ribbon bow accent. Powerful, confident, sexy.
How can you resist this Sugar Coral Rose Lace Teddy from Seven Til Midnight? Sweet and sexy coral colour with dotted mesh material and rose galloon lace detailing, all finished with a perfectly proportioned satin bow rosette. Great to wear under a summery dress, perfect for those tea parties on the lawn – ‘more tea vicar’!
Take a relationship, add a bodysuit and kapow (as any sexy superhero would say) – here you have the ‘romantic liaison’. From a date night in the city, to a mini break at a bijoux B&B to get away from it all, never forget your bodysuit if you want to make it memorable (oh and a little you-know-what later).
This gorgeous Eyelash Lace Open Back Magenta Teddy from Dreamgirl lingerie has stunning magenta eyelash lace with a high halter neckline. Its open back acts like a torch of temptation and the tie neck means its super easy to remove too.
Or how about this Back Talk Body Jewellery Teddy from Rene Rofe? Its beautiful black sheer lace and high halter neck has a gorgeous gold effect chain detail that delicately drapes between the shoulder blades. What a corker.
For something a little more burlesque in the bedroom, why not try out this Red Satin Eyelash Lace Overlay Teddy from Dreamgirl. Its impressive red stretch satin with a black eyelash lace overlay teddy features underwired cups, a strappy collar neckline and tie cutout back. Perfectly Parisian darling.
If you are more interested in form over function when it comes to underwear, then look towards the sexy and strappy varieties of bodysuit for a right royal romp after dark (or anytime!). These skimpy snippets may not do much when it comes to shapewear, but they will certainly make your shapes stand out, in all the right places.
You can be perfectly peachy with this Barely There Coral Tie Up Teddy from Escante. Its seductive coral floral lace features a strappy halter neckline with keyhole front meeting with an O-ring accent and ties to the neck, back and sides to hold it all together – or not.
Sometimes you just want a little black number perfect to wear for a date, and the reveal later. This Black Slashed Shoulder Cut-out Body from Let’s Duck is a brilliant choice. Its black seamless body with slashed shoulder detail and keyhole cut-out on the bodice makes it super sexy when its revealed, yet perfectly practical to hide under any little black dress.
Things start to get all the raunchier with this High Neck Plunge Suspender Teddy from Obsessive. A high neckline shapes the sexy black sheer mesh material with a deep plunge front with satin ribbon tie and lace trim. The removable suspender straps can be used, when desired…
Athena’s Shield! Sometimes you just want to play superheroes in the bedroom and let your partner know who’s boss. If its time to let your inner Wonder Woman out, go all out sexy with one of these almighty bodysuits. You’ll be a force to be reckoned with…
Wonder Woman eat your heart out with this Black Cut Out Plunge Bodysuit from Pink Lipstick. This totally boobalicious plunging black bodysuit shows off all the best bits. With its deep neckline with sexy belly-button cut out detail and thong back. You’ll have them eating from the palm of your hand with this number.
Or maybe a little harness is more your thing? Why not try this Black Strappy Harness Bodysuit from Mapale ? Totally erotic, the black bodysuit has a low V-neckline with keyhole centre front and a strappy bottom (because everyone loves a strappy bottom surely) with O-ring accents. If that wasn’t enough, the additional harness takes the sexiness to a whole new height.
We all know a garter is sexy right? Add it to a bodysuit and you’ll have ultimate power. Take this Power Play Black Garter Body from Pink Lipstick for example. Its sexy black body features triangle cups with strappy detail and a thong back. The gorgeous garter and stockings really vamp up the look. Phwoar.
There’s a fine line between Power play and all out erotic, and the Faux Leather Venice Lace Collar Teddy from Dreamgirl is where its at. This erotic black faux leather teddy has a lace trim, adjustable collar and shoulder straps, with a thong back. If Cat Woman was going to seduce batman – this is what she’d wear!
Ok, enough of the Marvel references for now. Let’s get more real, 50 shades real. We all know there is that little side in everyone that just wants to be a bit – well – naughty. If you want to really increase the stakes, look to accessories to really complete the look. Cuffs, restraints and whips are all welcome!
For a newbie to the world of bondage, why not try something a little subtler like this Cross Dye Teddy and Handcuffs Set from Seven Til Midnight. Entirely sensual, this wine coloured floral lace teddy features soft strappy triangle cups, cutout front, garter straps, adjustable cross back straps and a thong cut bottom; and comes with sheer black stockings. But the best bit is the matching handcuffs included.
Or how about this black beauty? The Fishnet Plunge Teddy and Glove Restraints from Dreamgirl. Seductive black fishnet with a high halter neckline and plunging neckline the front gives way to a tie back and g-string. With these matching gloves that feature a satin ribbon tie restraint, you can be sure to have all the fun.
For something more salacious, always seek out the wet look! This Wet Look Red Lace Up Body from Mapale is utterly indecent – in the best way. The sexy black wet look has erotic cut outs and a red satin ribbon lace up on the back. Crotchless for all the fun without the fumbling!
So, from Diana Prince (I hope you’ve looked her up by now) to Wonder Woman, there really is a bodysuit for everyone. Have fun finding yours x
