Oh, ASOS. How do we love thee? Let us count the ways. Actually, we won’t or we’ll be here all day. Suffice to say that the online shopping haven never fails to deliver on, well, just about everything. It’s one of our first ports of call whether we’re looking to upgrade our denim, dress for a wedding or just want to treat ourselves to a new pair of shoes. It turns out, however, that there’s one item that’s topping shopping lists everywhere, and it might surprise you.
According to ASOS HQ, there has been a huge surge in sales of bodies recently. Yes, we mean leotards. Who knew? Apparently, sales have gone up a whopping 300% compared to last year, and several styles have been selling out in record timing.
We know what you’re thinking; this item isn’t for everyone. But while they look vaguely terrifying, we’re here to inform you of their surprising versatility. They really can work for all body shapes, as we’re about to prove. Particularly thanks to the fact that ASOS has such a wide array of different styles available. Good job, really, given the rate these bad boys are selling. Even megababe Emily Ratajkowski has been getting her ASOS fix; we spotted her in the brand’s £12 Petite Vest Bodysuit in Rib with her boyfriend jeans. Which brings us nicely to our next point…
Denim might just be the best thing to happen to a bodysuit. Whatever your preferred style, be that skinny, straight-cut, boyfriend, girlfriend or even cropped, trust us when we say that a bodysuit is a figure-flattering top option. If you’re curvy, rock one with high-waisted jeans for a seamless silhouette, while those of you with a petite frame should take a leaf out of Emily’s book and pair a low-slung pair of true blues with your chosen all-in-one. No awkward tucking required.

Even better, ASOS currently has long sleeved bodies, styles with Bardot necklines, racer-back vests, backless beauties… the list really does go on. We want to wear ours with a micro-pleat midi skirt and flatforms by day and wide leg trousers with sky-high heels by night. See? We told you: versatile. And, with prices starting at just £7.99, this is probably the most affordable wardrobe essential in existence.
Cheers, ASOS. There goes our afternoon.
