It’s clear the ’90s are back, and bodysuits may be the chicest and most controversial part of the revival. On the one hand, they create a sleek silhouette when a traditional blouse tuck won’t cut it; on the other, unlike some floatier pieces, bodysuits leave no margin for fit error. And as usual, plus size bodies get the short end of the stick.

Luckily, the 32 plus-size bodysuits below are available well past an XL. From super sheer to office-appropriate to breastfeeding-friendly, I have a feeling you’ll find just the one(sie).

A Bright Ballerina Option

Sure, you’re not actually leaping in the air and executing pirouettes but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear something ballet-inspired. This highly rated option from Amazon has great reviews and is especially chic if you pair it with Mac’s Ruby Foo.

A Grecian Goddess Suit

A Halloween Helper

We really love this simple black number. It’s a bit early to think about October, but it would be extra good for a last-minute cat costume.

A Onesie That’s Perfectly Rosy

Carrie Rose Print Mesh Bodysuit
$15, Boohoo

It’s somehow sexy and Blossom-ish? If you need extra coverage, add a simple camisole, but if you want something worthy of a night out, take a cue from the model and try a simple black bra.

A One-Piece in Plush Pink

Asos Curve Body
$16, ASOS

Millenial pink and melodramatic purple might be the colors that are dominating the collective consciousness right now, but delicious hibiscus is even more fetching.

A No-Sweat Sleeveless Suit

Asos Curve Tank Body
$16, ASOS

Everyone deserves a simple summer staple and this sleeveless one has thick straps at the shoulders, so you don’t have to worry about finding a special bra.

A Scoopneck to Top Any Silhouette

From $18, Amazon

Skinny jeans, midi skirts, palazzo pants … the possibilities with this army green number are endless. Reviewers love how soft the fabric feels but the only caveat is that it can be a bit thin so don’t forget a nude bra.

A Sleek, Sensual Suit

Plus Lucia Plunge V Neck Lace Bodysuit
$20, Boohoo

Into the hibiscus color but feel like you want something more revealing? Then this lacy bodysuit is calling your name. The updated lace has a nice peekaboo effect against your skin — the ideal for date night.

A Romantic Lace Plunge Suit

Plus Molly Lace Long Sleeved Bodysuit
$20, Boohoo

Like a 21st-century Marie Antoinette, this elaborate number is definitely for the woman who isn’t afraid to be the center of attention. Try it with white wide-legged trousers for the most commanding effect.

A Sweet, Sheer Suit

Spanx Polka Dot Thong Bodysuit
$58, Spanx

Polka dots make this sheer bodysuit a playful layering option. Try it under a slip dress for a night out.

A Racy, Lacy Look

A Flouncy, Cheerful Suit

A floral, off-the-shoulder bodysuit combines nearly every popular trend of the last few years into one neat little package.

A Dangerously Deep Option

Let the twins out to play a little (and maybe invest in some double-stick boob tape).

A Suit for Smouldering Shoulders

Pink Clove Bardot Body
$26, ASOS

The perfect supporting actor for serious statement jewelry (or fun statement pants like these).

A Foxy Foldover Suit

Don’t want to deal with extraneous buttons, zippers, or off-the-shoulder flaps you have to keep down? A bodysuit with a choker top is a low-fuss way to give an outfit some extra oomph. You may also feel like Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct.

A BDSM-Inspired Option

TFW sticks and stones may break your bones but chains and whips excite you.

Or for a versatile (but still edgy) outfit foundation that requires more coverage, try this.

The French-est Suit You’ll See All Day

Lace Cap-Sleeve Bodysuit
$55, Lane Bryant

Definitely not your grandma’s lace. Use the deep V-neckline to show off a fanciful necklace or those gold pendants everyone is wearing.

The One That Doubles As Lingerie

Mesh and Lace Bodysuit
$55, Lane Bryant

Some reviewers treat this bodysuit as a sexy cover up over a nice lingerie set. But it looks great with jeans, too.

An Option for Your Inner Animal

Sick of your basic black tops? Sheer, spotted, and split-sleeved — it’s a triple threat that will shake things up.

I thought Khloé Kardashian was Beyoncé in the thumbnail for this suit from her Good American line, so it’s possible you’ll look like Beyoncé in it too. Which is a pretty good sales pitch.

A Suit to Zip Up or Down
