1993 called, they want their bodysuit back

were bodysuits all the rage at your junior high? because the were the fashion choice of champions at mine. georgeff-baker junior high had an overabundance of bodysuits. for some reason, we 12, 13, and 14 year old girls thought it was the coolest thing in the world to wear a tight, swimsuit-like top with our jeans all day long. it was the epitome of tacky. tacky with a crotch snap. i confess that i had one. i begged for it. it was long-sleeved and jewel-tone purple. the scallopped neckline was cut so that the buttons on the front were supposed to pull apart suggestively so that you could catch a glimpse of cleavage. fortunately(or unfortunately if you were a pubescent male classmate of mine) i have never had any type of bust and so a quick glimpse of my training bra wasn't ever going to happen.


fast forward 17 years(it causes me physical pain to type that). i receive the chadwicks quarterly catalog. it makes me feel ancient and uncomely that i receive a catalog that advertises hidden tummy panels and mom jeans. however, surprise of all surprises, they have some GREAT stuff!!!
i ordered this easter dress from chadwicks for about $40:
and that brings me to my most recent obession. i want a bodysuit. and chadwick's has them. there, i said it. i want a shirt with a crotch snap. but not just any old bodysuit, it needs to be a collared shirt bodysuit. i think it will be a great layering piece in the fall and winter. i love a crisp collared shirt and i hate that they always get bunchy underneath a sweater or jacket or come untucked from your pants or skirt. a collared shirt body suit is the perfect solution. even though a bodysuit goes against everything i stand for, i still want it. and it's only $29.99

you took the words out of my mouth! i got my catalog last week and was weighing the pros and cons of said crotch snap body suit.

My older sister had a teal green body suit that I thought was the coolest thing. I borrowed it from her on several occasions. So funny to think that body suits are making a comeback. At least the style seems to have grown up some. ;)

I'll be honest...I love it! I hate when I tuck in my shirts and they come untucked or super wrinkly from coming out a little bit. This is perfect for lds women! Before I got married my mom taught me to tuck my shirts into my underwear to keep 'em down...but now there ain't nothing to tuck into. So this is perfect! Thanks for the heads up!

Oh the body suit. How I missed you. I paired my body suit with a great pair of vertical striped shorts in circus colors. They were pretty fabulous. I think I may need a button-up blouse body suit too.
