According to Instagram, everyone I know is using quarantine to try something new. For some, that looks like baking sourdough bread from scratch. Others are simply trying to remove their acrylics without running their natural nails. I, on the other hand, am simply wearing a workout jumpsuit for the very first time.
Sometimes called an onesie, a catsuit, unitard or a one-piece, the short of it is that this is one piece of spandex that’s an entire outfit—removing the requirement for an actual top, pants and sometimes even a sports bra. While I would consider myself to be pretty confident with my body, I’ve never felt comfortable enough to try out a workout jumpsuit. I often wondered, how will my belly look? And will my boobs even fit? Now that I’m surrounded by only my (mostly) judgment-free family members and I admittedly wear leggings 99% of the time, it felt like the time to test this piece out.
And, it turns out, I love wearing a workout jumpsuit. It feels like a soft, cozy and supportive hug, just like a huge sports bra for my whole body. I never have to tug up a waistband during a set of burpees and I don’t have to worry about a tee or tank riding up during downward dog. And if someone doesn’t like how my thighs or tummy look in this, well, I’ve realized that’s their problem entirely. Here, nine jumpsuits I’d suggest you try out while isolating at home.
