There is, believe it or not, a difference between a teddy and a bodysuit. These two sexy pieces of lingerie have some very practical purposes, but they also work as a sensual piece in the bedroom when called upon. The teddy is typically a one-piece garment that looks a lot like a pair of panties and a camisole. Functional yet alluring, a teddy has evolved through time to become the piece of lingerie we know and love today.
A bodysuit is also a single piece made of a stretchy material and designed to cling to the body. Bodysuits have short sleeves, long sleeves, no sleeves, and leggings. Teddies are primarily thought of as sexy lingerie and are never worn as an outer garment. Sexy bodysuits, on the other hand, are often worn for fun in the bedroom or for making a splash out in public. Bodysuits gained popularity in the 1980s, frequently worn as outerwear. A sexy bodysuit was and still is a perfect match for everything from skirts to jeans. On a more functional level, bodysuits are a favorite choice for athletes like gymnasts, runners, cyclists and have been a standard garment for dancers for years.
Bodysuits are enjoying a comeback from the days when big hair and leg warmers ruled the world. As the saying goes, if you hang on to something long enough, it eventually comes back into style. Bodysuits come in a wide variety of colors, textures, and styles to match anyone’s tastes
What most women like about the bodysuits is the appearance of having a tucked in shirt or blouse without all the excess fabric around the waist. Bodysuits also work well underneath a jacket for smooth lines without the added bulk.
Bodysuits and teddies are made from sheer or semi-sheer stretch fabrics such as Lycra or Spandex. Both cling tightly to the curves of the body, but unlike a corset or girdle, a sexy bodysuit won’t be tight enough to change your shape. Bodysuits and teddies lack boning for any kind of support, although there are a few on the market with control panels or built in bras.
Teddies are the perfect choice for wearing under business suits when you want to feel sexy all day long. No one but you will know you’re hiding a sexy secret beneath your pinstripe jacket and skirt. Bodysuits and teddies also help to give you a nice, smooth line under your clothing, enhancing the overall appearance.
Whether you wear a teddy or bodysuit for business or pleasure, you can rest assured that wearing this lingerie will make a major difference in your life. Regardless of your purposes, you can wear a teddy or bodysuit anywhere and make an impact. Keep it discrete or be bold; the choice is yours with sexy lingerie.
