Bodysuits are making a comeback in both fashion and fitness apparel circles! The bodysuit (leotard) was originally made popular in the swimwear and fashion industries, but recently the incredibly versatile one-piece bodysuit has been gaining ground in the fitness apparel market. Women worldwide are embracing this trendy piece because it offers functionality in their fitness routines with an emphasis on style.
From a fashion perspective the bodysuit offers many advantages. They are designed for a close fit, hugging your curves and streamlining your silhouette to flatter your body, no matter what shape or size you are. Because of the design of the piece, when you wear a bodysuit as a top you can move with confidence knowing that it will stay exactly in place and will never come untucked or undone. As a result, the bodysuit maintains a perfectly sleek silhouette no matter where you go. Many stores refer to this particular product as a leotard, but rest assured that the underlying principle and design are the same.
From a fitness perspective, a workout bodysuit retains all of the advantages of a fashion bodysuit but incorporates specific benefits that will enhance your workout experience. Leotards have long been recognized as a superior clothing item to wear for ballet dancing as well as other disciplines. Why? Because they are made with soft, pliable fabrics that fit perfectly to the body, allowing unrestricted freedom of movement. As such yoga bodysuits are becoming more popular every day for other fitness routines that require a similar commitment to range of motion, such as yoga, Pilates, and gymnastics.
As with the fitness dress, bodysuits offer a perfect marriage between function and fashion that allows you to wear your favorite bodysuit both inside and outside of the gym. Practicality meets beauty in this versatile addition to your fitness apparel. What more could the modern woman want? Simply pair shorts, pants, or a skirt with your bodysuit to be ready to greet the world.

The crossed bodysuit style is flattering for every shape. Similar to a wraparound dress, the fabric crosses your body from the left and right side towards the center, resulting in a sharp V-neck. The overall effect enhances the body silhouette, providing a feminine, sophisticated, and sensual look.
Body Strap Bodysuits
Body strap bodysuits bring a modern twist to a classic look. Most body strap models feature details on the sides and across the bust or back, utilizing intersecting or spaced apart strips of fabric or cuts on the sleeves to flatter your body. Some models exhibit a high amount of sensuality; others are more modest and designed purely for functionality. Whatever your preference, we have the right style for your tastes!
Long Sleeve Bodysuits
Most bodysuits come in sleeveless models, but we also sell long-sleeved models to keep you warm when working out in colder weather or in the evenings. Long sleeve bodysuits offer an advantage over simply wearing a jacket or a sweatshirt over your workout top because those pieces may keep you too warm and the loosely-fitting sleeves can add extra bulk to your outfit. A long sleeve bodysuit is a great alternative to stay warm while keeping your workout clothes from impeding your range of motion or flexiblity.
The thong bodysuit was made for the bold and the daring. It the 1980’s many women wore “super-dug” bodysuits with high waists and little coverage to the gym and to dance classes. The thong leotard embraces that tradition but adds a modern touch. This model could be seen on Brazilian beaches in the 1980’s and today bloggers, sincers, and actresses are bringing this style back to the forefront of fashion trends.
