They save the day, and the outfit!

Bodysuits Are Not the Enemy, But Here are Some Common Complaints
RIley Brennan

Before the trend of bodysuits reemerged (the first were worn in the 1950's!), I, and many other girls across the world, were relieved from our consistent duty of having to make the decision between tucking our shirt into our pants/skirts, or allowing our shirts to rumble up in the space between our belts/waistline and torso (this problem is magnified when the bottoms are high waisted).

Before bodysuits became popular again, I felt hopeless when it came to ensembling an outfit with a belt because of such decisions. Because often, my shirts were too long not to tuck in, as they would become too lumpy or cover the belt I was wearing, creating a rather bulky look, I would have to resort to tucking the extra cloth into my pants/skirt, where the lumps of my shirt, could still be seen. Either way, I would have to spend the majority of the day readjusting my shirt, pulling it down or up, or having to retuck the cloth into my waistline.

But, then bodysuits came along, creeping into the lives of girls everywhere, infiltrating our Instagram feeds and nearby stores. Finally, the answer to my fashion-centered prayers! They fit perfectly under my pants and stayed in place all day. I felt relief at last! Good-bye, fashion hell! And they seemed to be the perfect solution of many others, as they took clothing stores by storm, earning their own section on many online clothing websites, and becoming a staple in many girls' closets.

However, every once and a while I'll be going through my day, and here someone complains about the bodysuit they're wearing, or be online and come across someone trashing bodysuits in general. Which seems completely ridiculous, because as I've previously stated, they answered many of my fashion qualms. So, I am in defense of bodysuits, to refute three of the most common complaints regarding them.

They're Uncomfortable.

And spending all day tucking in your shirt that WILL NOT stop riding up is? And if you find the bodysuits are too small or too big, try a different size!

It's so hard to pee.

Simply unbutton it and you're good to go! A quite simple process, and a very small price to pay for all the benefits!

Sometimes the indent of my bodysuit show through my bottoms.

Maybe you might be able to see the outline of a bodysuit when wearing really tight pants, but you can still see it way less than if you had tucked a shirt into your pants instead!

Bodysuits give a clean, well-fitted look that not only saves your whole look but prevents you from spending your whole day readjusting your ill-equipped ill-fitting shirt!

The 5 Seconds of Summer Concert Was The Best 12600 Seconds Of My Summer

Okay, I’ll let you in on a secret: I’ve never been to a concert before. That is, before this one. I’d always imagined my first concert to be something amazing, some grand experience that I’d remember forever. It’d be an artist I’d loved for at least a decade, and I’d be in the front row.

growing up with a sick mind.

The Power Of Loneliness

I could walk into a room with my closest friends and family and laugh all night but still feel as if I was by myself in a dark corner in a room I didn’t know. My phone could be blowing up with notifications and text messages but I’d still feel as if everyone forgot about me. It’s hard growing up and faking your happiness. At some point it’s hard to determine which is real or not.

How am I supposed to forgive you?

An Open Letter To The Doctor That Almost Changed My Life Forever

I remember the day exactly. It was my second day back home for winter break and my mom has been suffering from a terrible migraine that started 2 days before. The day my life almost changed forever was Saturday, December 22nd. On Friday, December 21st, I came home early morning to surprise my mom as she was not expecting me until Saturday. As I walked into my house, however; I was faced with my mom laying on her bed, post throwing up. I remember helping her come down the stairs so we can at least watch TV and talk as she rests on the couch. Surprisingly enough, as the day went by she started feeling better and better to the point where we even left the house to visit a friend of hers.

Saturday, December 22nd.
