An interesting fact about me? I wear tights 90% of the time and only have one set for every occasion: going out, going for a walk, working out, you might say. At this point, I’m pretty sure I own more one piece than actual shirts, and I’m cool with that. You see, I’m the type of person who can’t stand having to worry about my shirt coming loose or bunching up. I like the seamless interface, so that makes me worry-free. In my pursuit of the best of the best on the market, I’m slowly but surely testing each retailer’s selection.
So when I caught Old Navy Rib-Knit Supima Cotton-Blend Bodysuit ($25) I can’t help adding not one but three to my cart for a few reasons, starting with them looking like dupe of a particular celebrity shapewear line (detail three holes shirt). Second, they sound equally comfortable and classy, two elements I consider extremely important when adding to my work-from-home wardrobe.
I admit I was tempted to buy all five colors, but I played with it great and stuck with the three that I needed most: brown, cream, and pink. I opted for two-day delivery because I had plenty to spare, and then I ripped the bag off when it arrived. I was amazed by how soft they were and found myself the most attracted to the brown bodysuit (creatively named “Date Palm”, btw).
My honest review? The cream and pink jumpsuits are a bit too much for my taste, but the brown one has earned its rightful place in my wardrobe – and I can see myself wearing it as a piece of clothing. page and “real”. It fits comfortably and doesn’t feel like it’s sucked into my body like many bodysuits do. In fact, it’s so comfortable that I can see myself wearing it to bed if I pair it with a pair of shorts or pajamas.
If you’re also into bodysuits, I recommend choosing darker colors from this line, like brown, black, and navy. Although I have not tested the following two numbers, I believe they will work just fine, like the brown number. Not that the others weren’t wearable, but I could see my navel through the fabric, and that’s not exactly how I was supposed to feel. That said, though, the official brown one with the editor’s seal of approval is obsessed with this bodysuit – and I promise, that’s saying something.
