Vogue is telling me that statement maxi skirts are going to be a thing this spring. As a maxi skirt (and bold statement piece) lover, I approve. This trend, pared with the 90s aesthetic that seems to be popping up everywhere these days, made me think of bodysuits (what better to wear with a statement skirt?). I thought plus size bodysuits would be difficult to find, but there are definitely some great designs out there. I present to you my finds from across the internet, across a range of price points as always. Enjoy!
ASOS carries a wide variety of very affordable designs. Sizing varies across brands.
Based in Alberta, Buttercream Clothing makes bodysuits in both tank and long-sleeve styles in a few different colours and prints. Everything is made to order locally so be prepared to wait a couple of months before your item is shipped. Sizing up to 6X.
Cider has a lot of bodysuit designs to choose from at a very low price, ranging from basics like turtlenecks and tanks to prettier designs like this one. Sizing up to 4XL; I have never ordered from this brand but they appear to run small based on the size chart so be sure to check before ordering.
Eloquii has a small selection of bodysuits, absolutely none of which are plain enough to count as a basic wardrobe staple. This particular style is a dressier option for a night out. Sizing up to 28.
I mentioned this bodysuit in one of my earlier blog posts on activewear. It comes in both brief and thong options. Sizing up to 6XL.
Good American has lots of very cool bodysuit designs that are worth checking out. Sizing up to 5XL.
H&M has a few very cute and very affordable options. Bonus: this design has snaps on the bottom. Sizing up to 4XL.
Knix is generally a solid option for underwear and base layers, and bodysuits are no exception. Sizing up to XXXL+ (the size chart will show your fit based on bra size).

Torrid has a few bodysuit styles to choose from, most in basic black. I really like the corset seams on this design. Sizing up to 6X.

This bodysuit from Thistle & Spire is pricey but who cares because OMG IT HAS DRAGONS. Sizing up to 3X.
Universal Standard has a few bodysuit options including versions with shorts and full leggings. This particular design has snaps at the bottom and at the shoulder, making it super easy to get on and off. Sizing up to 40.

Last, but certainly not least, is Yitty. This line is designed by Lizzo so obviously it’s full of bright and bold designs. There are lots of fun styles to choose from. Sizing up to 6X.
