Until I started this round-up, I didn't realize exactly how difficult it would be to cull a list of plus size bodysuits together. Compared to their straight size counterparts, which come in a variety of cuts, fabrics, and price points, the market for plus size bodysuits is pretty bleak: Lots of black, not a lot of options, and a bunch of brands that only produce plus clothing up to a size 20.
That being said, there are a few flickers of light in this particular grotto of sartorial darkness. The mere concept of the plus size bodysuit is something that would have been unheard of a few years ago, when opinions on fat girls wearing tight clothing tended toward the unpleasant and judgmental. Now, tons of plus size women are ready and willing to get down with all varieties of bodysuits, leotards, and onesies — the market just has to catch up.
Though we might not yet have the range of sizes and styles that we deserve, plus size fashion is always moving forward, changing, and breaking rules. Today's simple black bodysuits in a size 20 might be tomorrow's sequined cut-out one pieces in a size 32 or higher. Until that moment comes, all we can do is celebrate the options we do have, as few as they might seem. Here are some of the best (and, TBH, only) plus size bodysuits in the game.
Channel your inner goth queen with this bodysuit, which features a faux harness across the chest.
2. In The Red
This plunging back bodysuit comes in the perfect shade of deep red.
3. The Faux Henley
The perfect casual bodysuit to wear under a pair of boyfriend jeans or sweats.
4. The Khaki Drape
The olive green khaki hue of this drapey bodysuit is what really makes it stand out from the rest.
5. Plunging Floral
The perfect cut and print to take you from daywear to a seriously sexy nighttime outfit.
6. The Herbal Remedy
Not all plus size bodysuits make a statement, but this one definitely speaks for itself.
7. Romantic Lace
This gorgeous bodysuit goes up to a size 5X, and would look amazing under a flowing maxi skirt (or even by itself when you're feeling your own sensual vibes).
8. Nude Lace-Up
Basic, neutral, and easy to style: What more could you want from a one piece?
9. Breezy White
The best part about this is that it tricks everyone into thinking you're wearing a blouse. Only you know the truth: What lies beneath those work trousers is a sexy bodysuit made for the most epic boss lady.
10. Simple Spaghetti
Because let's face it: It's hard to go wrong with a sexy strap and a plunging neckline.
11. Black Wrap
Like its white counterpart above, this bodysuit is all about the business.
12. Plunging Neckline
If showing cleavage down to your navel is wrong, this plus size bodysuit doesn't want to be right.
13. The Leatherette
How amazing would this look under some leather pants (and maybe even with a leather jacket)? It might sound too matchy-matchy, but something tells me that this plus size look would be more epic than anything else.
14. Mesh Stripes
For a simple look that doesn't sacrifice sexiness.
15. Mesh Through-And-Through
One piece of mesh in sizes up to 5X, this bold bodysuit is for the most unapologetic plus size babe.
16. Adjustable Straps
The adjustable straps on this one piece make it more versatile for those who have larger chests.
17. White Mesh
If you want to make a statement but aren't sure how, I suggest covering your plus size body in tight, white mesh.
18. Svelte & Ribbed
This looks like the perfect bodysuit to pair with all your fresh activewear.
19. The Kim K Realness
Because if Kim K were plus size, she would almost certainly wear this around the house.
20. Strappy Cranberry
Between the color and the awesome details, it's hard to decide what to love most about this bodysuit.
21. Serious Turtleneck
Because sometimes, even a bodysuit can be all about the serious business.
22. Strappy & Black
No matter what happens, you always just know that this guy is going to look amazing, however you style it.
23. In The Nude
I love the idea of pairing this shade with black pants and a leather jacket, proving that it's definitely possible to dress minimally without being boring.
24. The Simplest Solution
Consider this your throw-on-and-go bodysuit situation — as easy to wear as a basic tee.
25. Sweetheart & Mesh
The mesh panel on this bodysuit lets you be sexy without breaking any potential in-office modesty rules.
26. The Bardot Look
The off-the-shoulder look is really hot right now, and this simple and sweet bodysuit serves all the shoulder they can handle.
27. High Neck
The neckline on this bodysuit makes it totally unique, and gives you a chance to show off those great arms of yours.
28. The Singlet
Get the bodysuit aesthetic and prevent chub rub at the same. Damn. Time.
29. Dramatic Lace
The larger lace detail on this bodysuit is what makes it amazing, and it will look totally hot when paired with your favorite strappy black bra or bandeau.
30. Basic & Simple
Easy to pair with a black leather mini or pair of trousers, this bodysuit is perfect for those who like to keep it simple.
31. Easy Breezy
Basic, black, and easy to pair with anything: This is an all-purpose bodysuit that you absolutely must add to your wardrobe.
32. Crushed Velvet
Velvet is the kind of material that looks especially sumptuous, and you'll feel like the most regal queen in this little number.
33. Flirty & Feminine
This bodysuit never met a white trouser or cream bomber that it didn't like.
Do any of these bodysuits whisper sweet nothing's to your longing heart? Snap them up while you can — and hopefully there will only be more to lust after in the future.
