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

They save the day, and the outfit!

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!

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because Those Hormones Aren't Gonna Balance Themselves

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

It's common knowledge that your hormones impact practically every aspect of your body. Weight gain, acne, mental health... it's all related to your hormonal health. If your life is treating your body like the superstar it is, your endocrine glands should produce the perfect amount of each hormone to keep you running like a well-oiled machine. This is a nice thought, sure. In our current society, even the most balanced person you know may be missing an important aspect of respecting their body. Things like sleep, stress, diet, exercise, and a busy pace of life can throw hormones off balance and negatively impact your general wellbeing. Sometimes these imbalances are noticed right away, while other times they can be smaller — annoying, but not as obvious.

One of the biggest discomforts I initially had with the stay-at-home order was feeling trapped and isolated from what was going on outside the walls of my house. Add that to living in a massive city, where social distancing is nearly impossible when doing something as simple as walking down the street.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.

NBC

I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.
