Different colors and styles of the lingerie bodysuit

Wearing a lingerie bodysuit as outerwear can be both exciting and intimidating- that's understandable!

So here, we've put together ways that you can use a lingerie bodysuit as outerwear without feeling uneasy. Check them out!

How to Use Lingerie bodysuit as Outerwear

Lingerie bodysuits usually sold in many different styles. Most expose your upper body more than other bodysuits and require proper styling to look both sexy and decedent. So the idea when wearing one is to make it less scanty but stylish and adequately supportive. These styling tips will make you stand out in a lingerie bodysuit versus blend in.

Cover it up

Feeling too exposed? Try a blazer on top. Putting on a blazer is the quickest and easiest way to make your lingerie bodysuit more wearable. It'll not only protect you from cold but will also add a formal touch by reducing the exposed areas. Pick a blazer that matches the lingerie bodysuit- your outfit will look decent enough for a date or an evening out with friends.

Add a Statement Jacket

To create a trendier, chic, and fun look to your lingerie bodysuit outfit without exposing yourself too much, add a statement jacket on top. A coat is also a perfect way to show off your lingerie bodysuit comfortably. An edgy leather jacket will add a touch of whimsy to your look or you can try a fur coat if it’s really cold. The combination of softness and toughness is bound to get you noticed.

Go For a Black Bodysuit

Black is sexy - there's no denying that. It’s even sexier when made of lace! So if you're looking for a bold outfit, then go for a black lingerie bodysuit. Pair this with any type of jeans and heels or sneakers. Another option is to wear the black bodysuit is to use it with pencil skirts or pants/leggings and boots. In short, black will always match with any bottom you may choose.

Do the Trench Coat Trend

This is a no-brainer and a great way to make your lace body top more wearable - just wrap yourself in a trench coat or trench-inspired outerwear, and you're ready to go. This look is both comfy and stylish at the same time. Wear it with your favorite pair of jeans and sneakers for a casual look, or dress it up with a plaid shirt and statement boots for date night.

Wear a Bra

If your lingerie bodysuit is too revealing, consider wearing a bra underneath it. It will not only cover you up but also provide support to your bust. Avoid bras that will make your outfit cluttered, though, such as those with wider straps. Choose thin straps instead. You could also choose a strapless lingerie bodysuit. Choose also, the right color or tone of the bra; you do not want it conflicting with your lace bodysuit.


Accessorize your sexy lingerie bodysuit with statement necklaces, long earrings, and rings so it looks like an actual outfit. Remember, the boundary between outerwear and lingerie depends on how you style it. A scarf will provide the much-needed pop of color to an otherwise monochromatic outfit. You can also choose to wear colorful or glittery shoes so the outfit doesn’t look too flat.

Make Lingerie Bodysuit Work for Your Body Type

Lingerie or lace, one-piece bodysuits look different on different body types. O you need to have a hint of what to wear based on your type of body. Here are some helpful hints to finding the perfect style to wear under your statement outerwear or even by itself.

Lingerie Bodysuit for Pear Shape

If you’re a pear shape, your lower body is wider than the top (large hips and narrow bust/shoulders). To cinch in your waist, try pairing a red lingerie bodysuit with an oversized blazer, high-waisted denim shorts, and lace-up high boots. This outfit draws attention away from your midsection.

Lingerie Bodysuit for Apple Shape

If you’re an apple shape, your bust is larger than your bottom. To create curvier upper half, wear the lingerie bodysuit with bootcut jeans and heels. The style will make shoulders appear narrower as well as nip in your waist. You may also want to avoid a bodysuit that draws more attention to your upper torso.

Lingerie Bodysuit for Hourglass Shape

If you’re an hourglass shape, your lower body (thick thighs) is wider than top (small waist and large bust). Create a V-shaped figure, by pairing a red or pink, lace lingerie bodysuit with a flared skirt. Add heels to complete the outfit. You will easily narrow out your upper half. You can also try pairing the bodysuit with printed pants, wedges, and drop earrings for an edgy look.

Lingerie bodysuit for Plus Size

If you’re plus size, your bust, waist, and hips are larger than regular sizes. For a balanced figure, try pairing a longs sleeve lingerie bodysuit with a maxi skirt and heels. The outfit will balance out your upper and lower body. You can also the plus size lingerie bodysuit with a blazer and pants for an office look or printed pants and wedges for an amazing look.

Lingerie Bodysuit for Athletic Build

If you're athletically built (small waist/wide shoulders), lingerie bodysuits are a cool way of dressing for different occasions. You can always dress up a strappy lingerie bodysuit with high-waisted denim shorts, sneakers, statement earrings, and neutral-colored lipstick for an edgy look.


Women’s lingerie bodysuits are sexy pieces that should give you the confidence to shine on any occasion- men’s lingerie bodysuits, too. The idea is to create an attractive outfit that will make you stand out. Make sure to style it in a way that will make you feel comfortable and not too exposed. If you feel fine, then half the battle is won. Use the outfit to a night date or even during the day to give out a fresh vibe.
