So I have been thinking about getting a bodystocking, but unsure whether to or not! I love (and hubby) fishnet stockings, but since having kids I have a bit of excess weight, and can’t shake the feeling that I will look like a piece of pork with flab poking between it! I’m also only 5’4" so worried I’ll be too short for them?
Does anyone who isn’t perfectly toned have one? What are general opinions of them?
I like the below as it’s more lacy (and love open cup)
I’m a size 22/24, and i felt the same that I would look horrible in it. But when he was looking through he see the contour queen hourglass suspender bodystocking, and said he’ll love to see me in this, so I took the plunge and brought it, lets just say it was a fun night
the one you picked out looks gorgeous and I’m sure he’ll love you in it too
I’m also 5’4" and around a size 18. Because bodystockings are so stretchy I found that if I go for the plus size then because I’m not that tall they end up being a bit too long in the leg resulting in a loose fit. So, I size down for them, they still fit but a lot more snugly, depends on what feels more comfortable for you really.
They are pretty forgiving overall, I have plenty of imperfections such as stretchmarks and a flabby tummy, love handles etc but bodystockings never draw attention to any that. The open cup one that you’ve linked looks great and the lacy look is perfect for skimming over any areas you have concerns about.
I also worried about looking like an oven ready pork joint, especially in the fishnet style but amazingly the flab didn’t squeeze through the netting! I did have a problem with nipples rubbing on the fishnet although the open cup style would sort that problem
I tried one once but as I’m 5’3 it was just too long on me. It was one of the body stockings that are designed to look like a basque with attached stockings but the proportions just weren’t right for me. I think that was mainly the style that I tried rather than body stockings in general.
To be honest i’m not sure now our reviews aren’t linked to our profiles. But i have reviewed a few, can’t fault them, and often on 2 for £20 offer.
I think i reviewed the suspender tights one, red large fishnet, halter neck one.
