The best bodysuits don’t get nearly as much love as they should—but take it from us, they’re as much a wardrobe essential as your favorite white T-shirt or straight-leg jeans. They bring stylish ease and versatility to your look, not to mention as a simple base, they can really let other statement items shine.
The Best Bodysuits, According to Vogue
From sleek long-sleeves to sleeveless one-pieces, there is a bodysuit out there for every person and occasion alike. They come in all types of cuts and materials, too: Be it a spandex turtleneck for comfortable warmth or a stretchy ribbed-jersey knit for smoothing and support.
There’s no shortage of ways to style one of the best bodysuits either. For simple sophistication at the office, pair Wolford’s stretchy turtleneck with tailored slacks and a structured blazer. Heading to a dinner or a brisk winter’s night? Alaïa’s sheer style with lacy florals brings a demure elegance to your look when worn with high-waisted, wide-leg jeans and black boots. Going to a yoga class before work? Turn to Lululemon’s square-neck silhouette made from its new supersoft fabric, Wundermost, to wear with sweatpants or black leggings.
Whichever style you choose, effortless dressing awaits. Below, we rounded up the best bodysuits for you to shop now—all of which come highly recommended by Vogue editors. Next time spring cleaning rolls around, these are the pieces that will stand the test of time.
With winter on this horizon, start with a style that keeps you cozy while serving as a foundation for layering underneath sweaters and jackets and coats. On a chilly day, slip into Commando’s subtle mock-neck with a Fair Isle sweater or wool peacoat on top. Or try Good American’s compressive stretch-jersey for a sculpted fit.
Perhaps you tend to overheat or want something a little more breathable, in which case you may reach for a sleeveless style. Channel winter whites with Alo’s racerback cut, which you can wear to a workout or as an underpinning for an everyday outfit—or focus on sculpting with something supportive like Spanx’s satin shaping bodysuit, which you’ll love wearing underneath party dresses.
Explore the sultry side of bodysuits with a lace style that weaves intricacy with romance. Kat the Label alternates mesh and lace to create a barely-there look that teases the imagination, while Cami NYC uses sheer paneling as a form of structure.
Bodysuits as Tops
There’s nothing more versatile than an item that can be worn in various ways. Instead of layering your bodysuit underneath a sweater, wear it on its own as a true statement piece. Two favorites? Jacquemus’ ribbed-knit one-piece that passes as a collared shirt, and Christopher Esber’s silk blouse hybrid that’ll kick the glamour up a notch.
