Can I Wear a Bodysuit? A Bodysuit Roundup

I know the bodysuit trend has been going on for a while now, but I never quite understood it and wrote it off as not being for me. But then I saw the Amy Bodysuit from Reformation and I thought, can I wear a bodysuit?

Whether I can (or should) remains to be seen, but I was determined nonetheless.

I’ve got other items on my summer wishlist, and my budget (lol) doesn’t really allow for an $80 wildcard trend purchase, so I promptly fell into a bodysuit spiral in hopes of finding something similar for approximately a quarter of the price.

The thing that I was trying to recreate from the Reformation bodysuit was the sideboob potential. Low arm holes or essentially backless were some of the qualities I was honing in on. I have a ribcage tattoo that I got specifically so that it would be easy to conceal, but sometimes it’s fun to show it off a little, and this seemed like a way to do it. Of course, the more I got into the bodysuit search, the more I found different styles that I liked.

Other thoughts that were front of mind during this search included:

  • Is it the late ‘80s/early ‘90s?
  • Can I wear a bra with any of these?
  • Do I wear underwear with a bodysuit?
  • Where would I ever wear a bodysuit?
  • Am I essentially looking for a non-bathing suit version of my ideal one-piece?
  • What are the odds that after three glasses of pink wine I can successfully pee while wearing one of these?
  • Am I too old to wear a bodysuit? Do I care?
  • I wore a sideboob-baring tank top recently and was incredibly self-conscious the entire time. Why would a bodysuit be better?
  • I will never wear most of these. They barely count as clothes.

Regardless, I rounded up a bunch of affordable bodysuits (with the exception of the Good American one, thanks, Khloé Kardashian), just in case I decide that this is a trend I should get behind.

Attaching a wood fence to a chainlink fence

As I mentioned in my last fence/gate update post, I helped Erika attach a wood fence to the chainlink fence in her backyard. The process was similar to when I converted a chainlink fence to a wood fence, except in this case, we left the chainlink fence intact. This method is a good option if you want to add a little more privacy to your yard or camouflage a chainlink fence while you wait to save up for a completely new fence.

Fence Updates and Two-Panel Wood Driveway Gate Plans

Hellooooo, I’m thinking about fences again! You all had the pleasure of following along as I moved and rebuilt the fence in my backyard and then converted a chainlink fence into a wood fence along my driveway, and now it’s finally time to build that driveway gate. Of course, I can’t just build a driveway gate and leave it at that, I’ve also decided to cap the entire fence to cover up the dogear pickets and give everything a cleaner and more finished look. HOORAY!
