You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
Whether your current home workout of choice is yoga, Pilates, or a DVD of Jane Fonda’s Original Workout, you may be looking for something new to burn some calories in. Ideally, that something would be “insanely soft, comfortable, and liberating” — and, even more ideally, “simultaneously utilitarian and luxurious,” as well. One garment we know for a fact is all of those things? Universal Standard’s Next-to-Naked Bodysuit, which is available in sizes 00 to 40 and on sale for 25 percent off today. Writer Francine Maroukian — who owns four of the bodysuits — has used all of those words to describe them, in addition to praising other thoughtful design details, including the bodysuit’s no-slip, adjustable straps, higher neckline, breast support, and contoured waistband. She originally bought the bodysuit for barre class but soon found it was also was perfect for bike riding, working around the house, and running errands. (Based on this versatility, we also think it would make for the perfect loungewear to catch up on Tiger King or organize your closet in, too.)
