Ladies, tis’ the season to get bodied and grab yourself a bodysuit. You feel like you can’t wear one? No worries! EGL will show you easy ways to wear one of the hottest trends this season, regardless of your size, shape or age.

Let’s take a walk down memory lane and talk about the emergence of the bodysuit. In 1985, designer Donna Karan used her ’80s flash dance inspiration to transcend the trend onto the runway and include the bodysuit in her “Seven Easy Pieces” collection. The bodysuit then was coined as a must-have item for every woman’s wardrobe.

Fast forward to 2008, when we ALL can remember the re-emergence of the bodysuit by none other than Beyonce in the Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) video. The asymmetric one-shoulder black bodysuit naturally sparked the media’s attention as well as adoring fans. The bodysuit, once again, became the new fad for many seasons to come. giphy
