Those who know me in real life know that I’ve gained weight ever since I started working from home in 2017. In my defense, those anecdotes about being in the quarantine full of napping and snacking… That’s my lifestyle for the past few years!
I’m not an alcoholic, but I eat enough junk food to get some beer belly myself. And ironically, it won’t stop me from wearing a bodysuit because I just feel comfortable to wear the outfit that shapes my body the way it is. Sue me, hater! 😛
Anyway, this gave me an idea to share the tips with my readers about wearing a bodysuit when you have a beer belly. So, what are those?! Check this out!
“You ought to be able to wear your character like a lycra bodysuit.“Andy Daly.
The Secret Behind a Bodysuit
The quote above definitely sums it up. You can see someone’s confidence when they wear a bodysuit. Because it’s not rocket science to know that a person has a self-confidence when they’re not afraid to wear something that reveals their body shape.
In a cruel world like this, our bodies can be the primary source of our insecurity. So kudos to you who wear bodysuits like a boss!
And while some people can rock it with their confidence, there may be some people out there who feel insecure with their beer belly even though they love to try a bodysuit just to see if it fits them. And that’s when the idea of writing this post came up.
The Ultimate Hacks on How to Rock a Bodysuit
So, what are the hacks of wearing a bodysuit with a body full of insecurities? Here’s how!
1. Love your body the way it is.
Whether you are skinny or struggling with a beer belly, accepting your body is the key to rock any outfit you wear. By having self-confidence, you will be more comfortable about who you are and what you wear.
I think it’s great that nowadays people are more aware of body positivity. The rise of plus-size models makes a lot of people understand more that it’s okay to have different body shapes than what the media triggers you to believe.
By accepting yourself the way you are, you will eventually understand what kind of outfit makes you more comfortable. Everybody has their insecurity, but how you perceive it is essential. By all means, you can try to give tummy control shorts a try if you feel like it, but what’s the point if you just can’t accept your own body?!
I used to hate my big boobs. They make me stop wearing baby dolls because I’ll look like a breastfeeding mom whenever I wear it. It took me years to understand that some people (I mean men! LOL) think it’s my best feature.
Sure it took me years to love my own body, but what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Right now, what was once my insecurity has become a part of the body that I’m proud of! #sorrynotsorry
2. Enjoy the art of mix and match!
minimalist life and have a capsule wardrobe, there’s always a time or two when you’re in the mood to mix and match your outfit.
Take advantage of the ability to combine your favorite clothes to emphasize your style!
By all means, mix and match your outfit will also allow you to cover your insecurities when you wear a bodysuit. For example, if you’re not 100% confident about your beer belly, you can try to wear a belt to cover it.
You can also mix your bodysuit with a long cardigan. Fashion statement on the street, insecurities on the sheet. LOL.
3. Dress appropriately according to the occasion.
I can’t stress this enough. No matter how confident you are or how comfortable your outfit is, you’d wish you could change your clothes if you wear the wrong dress.
In that case, common sense plays a big part since you need to know whether or not the event you’re going to attend is appropriate for you to wear a bodysuit. If not, then don’t risk it. The last thing you want to be is to be remembered as the person who wears the wrong outfit on a wrong occasion.
Remember, you’re not Lady Gaga, who could rock a meat dress and still use it as your main selling point!
4. Pick the perfect underwear.
It could be challenging to pick the underwear when you wear a bodysuit.
Since the outfit will adjust your body shape, it is best to invest in the underwear that won’t leave a mark when you wear a bodysuit. Whether it’s a bralette, a nipple cover, or a g-string, you can pick one that goes the best with the type of your favorite bodysuit.
5. Rock it like you mean it!
No one likes a show-off, but sometimes when people talk about how inappropriate you wear an outfit just because your body shapes, you just need to do it. Prove them wrong, and show your radiant beauty in your bodysuit!
After all, no matter what you wear, no matter what you do, people who envy you will talk. You could either just ignore them and show them where they’re wrong.
So yes, rock the bodysuit as you mean it! After all, a beer belly shouldn’t stop you from wearing what you love.
Are you ready?!
